Life moves swiftly in October and a frozen state finally thaws. So much so that when you travel, the solutions appear magically! Watch for the signs, Leo – they’re all around your passport.
With your mojo back, you conquer the world. And your creative projects…Work is a wild card after September 30 when Pluto explodes direct in your sixth house. Surprising news comes in. Pluto’s excellent for clearing out what needs to be cleared out, and so whatever needs to go in your day-to-day and in your domestic routine will go.
The pain and difficulty melt away. You are awesome and you need to respect this.
As October gets underway, partners and colleagues become more open to your plans and ideas. Collaborations, particularly, are blessed after mid-month.
However, you may suddenly feel yourself experiencing anxiety over a choice you have recently made.
It is perfectly understandable that you would feel this way now. But rather than stressing about it, take time away from the situation. Take long walks (by yourself.) As great short story writer Alice Munro (Ascendent in Leo) writes, “Woo your distant selves.”
Venus retrograde after October 5 in both your third and fourth houses for 40 days (of temptation) urge you not to give in to spending, renovating, and making life decisions! VERY important. Do the research, think about it, but do not act on it. NO luxury-spending until after November 15!
You have not had a certain part of you to yourself for a while now.
I repeat: Do not stress about it.
Woo your distant self. That self that seems to have been buried in the background due to a certain somebody. Oh, Leo! What a loss that was!
And yes – of course, necessary, for the growth of what you had to give to others.
Leo is the most generous sign, hands down. No doubt there.
So when Leo becomes isolated, the universe intervenes.
Remember that the universe turns around your ruler the Sun, not the other way round. You’re meant to be very much in the world with us, dear Lion.
Your majesty. Your warmth. Your fire. Your love.
October is your month to fall in love with what you do. To love your self-expression. To love YOU.
To STOP the renovations with others and to concentrate on your art and self again!
Ditto to any doubts or revising of a current project. Don’t tie yourself up trying to make everything perfect.
Yes, everyone’s crazy, but the changes that come to you as a result will be great! You become freer this October, unburdened by others. You have been so caught up in their dilemmas – you do your best to help but it never seems to be enough – and by month’s end you can concentrate on your own life and needs again. Honest communication is key.
Rise above power struggles with partners and associates by sticking to your word and not promising more than you can deliver. Say everything twice, and write it down also. Remember, you’re dealing with some control-obsessed sticklers here!
This means: take a breather, go inside and replenish, and come out stronger than ever.
Here to help you be true to your word– in your third house of words:
The awesome, life-giving Sun (your ruler, naturally)
Brilliant thought planet Mercury
Nurturing mama asteroid Ceres
A challenging new Libra Moon on Monday, October 8
And your third house rules:
Writing in particular
Talking on your phone
Expressing yourself through movement: your hands, arms, shoulders
Siblings, sibling-like friends, neighbors
Travel, short trips, and visits
Thinking, Discerning, Analysis
This month, give yourself a break on all the rest of it, particularly about the future. You have been worrying so much about the future, and you need to remember that all we really have is TODAY.
So just live for today, day by day. I have never advised this in a horoscope before, but it is truly the best thing you can do for yourself – it is imperative now, actually.
You are spectacularly blessed and talented, and the future will reward you for this. And resolve itself all on its own.
Here, by the greatest poet and dramatist in the Sanskrit language, Kalidasa. Befitting of a royal Lion.
“Look to this day! For it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence.”
Now is an incredible time of nurturing for you. October is indeed, your harvest time.
Many of you are nurturing a child or children at this time, and many of you are also about to receive incredible nurturing from another adult.
You will need to communicate twice as effectively to be understood.
Sibling-like figures, and in some cases actual siblings, will occupy a lot of your time.
In love, you may have felt a bit more alone than usual. Realize that this is simply a timing thing and will soon pass. You are adored and – secret! – Leos really can get anyone they want.
If a relationship is not working out or if you are still alone (and don’t want to be any longer), wait for next month for the fog to clear.
You may have recently felt such a breather about your home. To those of you who have been working crazily on your space, you can move all that good nurturing and care now toward your love life and your creativity. Get creative, get wet, get going!
Love planet Venus enters your juicy financial area on Thursday, October 8, making it all as beautiful as possible. October is your month to fall in love with what you do. To love your self-expression. To love YOU. To STOP the renovations and concentrate on your art and self again! Communicate! Express yourself!
Still wondering how all this can happen with all you have to do? (As in ALL the time; it’s been non-stop.)
Essentially, it’s through getting away, taking up a new interest or study – really, by EXPANDING YOURSELF.
People, particularly foreign people, or those living in different cultures, bring you unbelievable luck now. As do projects that are about very far away places – even about outer space!
Demonstrate added patience when things don’t come together as quickly as you would like and at the same time watch for the unexpected to create changes in the blink of an eye. Silence can be golden; things that are said can leave a sting for sometime to come.
On the plus side, this month’s stars are wonderfully revitalizing and help you make a huge turnaround. You find the opportunity to speak your mind more and you find that others will listen more readily too. You can expect your social life to perk up and to make reconnections of significance.
Let relationship challenges rest, allow for sudden attractions, and a severing of ties (you could be let off the hook), an opportune time to scoop a ticket, to make a sale, to say what you need to, and/or to get up and go.
Due to Venus’ retrograde October 5 to November 15, people will reappear, whether in actuality or through memory.
This retrograde also ignites trust issues, legal issues, and relationship power struggles. Watch for leaks, guard our valuables and your tongue, keep safe, and avoid polluted environments. Also, watch for people who are polluting to your sense of self or are simply corrupt.
Positively, this retrograde offers ideal time for soul searching and for inner exploration; seek counseling or other advice if you need it. Life brings a willingness to give it another try.
Is it time for your very own session?
I look forward to speaking with YOU, gorgeous Leo.
With love, Madalyn
