O C T O B E R - Sun in Libra/ Sun in Scorpio


For Sagittarians born in late December, the last few days of Jupiter in Libra (October 1-9) are an excellent time for growth--particularly growth in the domain of Libra, which rules aesthetics, beauty, justice, diplomacy, and social life. You have the ability to project confidence to the people that matter, and advancement is possible as a result.  Relationships both romantic and platonic flow easily at this time; financial windfalls may appear; big-picture thinking seems not only standard, but fruitful. Overlapping this 9-day influence is the sextile with Libra Mercury (Oct 1-17) and Libra Sun (Oct 1-22), making it possible not only to feel this energy, but move with it, speak with it, and act with it. Virgo Mars and Virgo Venus join forces to square your Sun, which could strike you as stimulating or frustrating, depending on your state of mind. Venus is in its fall in Virgo, cramping its naturally flowery expression, while Virgo Mars can be exacting, judgmental, or nitpicky. The compulsive energy can confound easygoing Sag, but being clear-headed and unemotional at this time will carry you through. Once Venus moves into Libra, the sign of its rulership, things will noticeably relax (Oct 15-31). This is an especially good window to make a good impression at interviews, or when meeting anybody for the first time. Aiding you from the 22nd to the 24th is the waxing crescent Moon in Sagittarius, juicing you up with enterprising vim. The 23rd is particularly powerful, when Mars moves into Libra as well to join Venus (Oct 23-31). Although in the sign of its detriment (Mars lacks its decisive action when in waffling, fairness-obsessed Libra), Mars remains unaspected by other planets for the rest of this month, lessening its handicap. The monthlong contact with Sagittarius Saturn affects mid-December Sagittarians the strongest. This conjunction brings drudgery and responsibility to the fore, particularly in matters of education, beliefs, ideology, travel, philosophy, and luck. You may experience obstruction in these matters, or you may feel that the old (Saturn) is clashing with the new (Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius). The trine with retrograde Aries Uranus affects late-Decembers Sag, lending an air of unusual excitement to your life. Surprises, unexpected actions and initiative, breaks for freedom, dynamic beginnings, and new discoveries are all possible at this time, but so is force-over-fact, Hulk-smash kind of thinking. Regardless, it is hardly a time to sit still. As for Sagittarians born in early December, the square with retrograde Pisces Neptune brings creative tension, wallowing emotional indulgence and seclusion, and the tendency to live in your own head. Turn, instead, to things that heal. Take a hot bath, meditate, stretch, or relax your grip on crutches like drinks or cigarettes.
