Cancer Rising - Your Month Ahead - October 2012
Background influences for October
In the first three weeks of October, the Sun will be passing through your 4th house of family and domestic affairs. You will certainly be more concerned about you family and you will naturally want to spend more time at home, but your thoughts and emotions will also be drawn to looking more inwardly at yourself and things that happened in the past. Events that affected you deeply in previous years will need to be assessed and analysed so that you can work out why they happened in order that you can solve any current problems or issues in your life. This therefore is a time of quite a lot of reflection and self-analysis. Women are important now, and a lot issues surrounding them or involving your mother will be important to you. In the last week of the month the Sun moves into the more light hearted 5th house and you will be more inclined to go out, enjoy life with friends and with your children. Now will be the time for your more inventive and creative side of your personality to shine through.
Mercury in the 5th house is in a jocular mood for most of this month, and you may be interested in playing games or taking on mental challenges. Mercury in the chart is also the trickster in the sky, and here in the 5th house it is liable to encourage you to play practical jokes on others – be careful not to be insensitive. You will certainly be able to express your opinions and ideas clearly, but your ability to listen to other views will not as good as it normally would be either.
Venus early in the month moves into your 3rd house of communications and local affairs. Your life is going to get a lot busier at this time as you make lots of social trips, deal with a succession of letters and people getting in touch with you including your brothers and sisters if you have them. Venus is the planet of love, so why not tell the people around you that you do love and appreciate them; spread a little love around your local area & you'll feel good for doing so. Trips to explore the beauty of your local surroundings may be enjoyable and well worth doing.
From the 5th through to the 7th 3 planets all change signs, Mars into Sagittarius and Mercury and Saturn simultaneously into Scorpio. Through the following weeks of October, you should be feeling more energized physically allowing you to maybe take up a new hobby or sport, or control you children in a more effective way!!
Specific Planetary Aspects
Early into the month and on the 3rd October we have a Venus Neptune opposition squared by Mars. Artistically this can be a really stimulating time so let those talents flow however there are also downside to these connections. It is possible that you can take unwise financial or emotional risks under this influence, so if you decide to do so, be aware of the potential consequences. Also be careful, as the temptation to cheat or deceive others in games or in sport is strong now.
Moving on to mid month and the new Moon in Libra hits in your 4th house on 15th October. This starts a phase when you may feel the need to reorganise your family needs or even to plan a bit more long-term into the future for what you feel you need to achieve in your life in relation to everyone else. You also may start an interest into your family history or want to explore your roots or where you came from.
On the 17th Uranus receives a double hit from Mars and Pluto. In this dynamic connection, you can make some significant progress at work but in the process you run the risk of causing conflict with those your colleagues. Work with them and be inclusive rather than working against them and you and you’ll be fine. On the 25th October, the Sun meets Saturn in Scorpio and makes an easy trine aspect to Neptune. Conversations at home with your parents or family or help from your relatives can help learn more about yourself or aid you in any financial decisions that you have to make. Listen to the advice they give.
The full Moon at the end of the month is in Taurus in your 11th house of friends and associations opposite to Saturn moving through your 5th house. Now you may be asked to help out someone, maybe a friend who needs assistance. By sharing you time and abilities, you may learn a little lesson that life is not just lived on an individual basis, and the love of friends and those who appreciate you is truly valuable. This may mean that your own creative ideas may have to go on hold for a little while.
