Money can’t buy you love. So say The Beatles anyway. I advise you keep that in mind this month, as your financial situation might get a little wonky. Luckily, the month starts out on a nice note- your ruler, Mercury, is in your 3rd house of communication (the house mercury rules!), and on Oct 3rd, it will trine Neptune in your 7th house of partnerships. Communication with your sweetie will be divine on this day. Alternatively, any contract you sign to form a new business partnership will be swimming in good luck. Unfortunately, the good vibrations come to a halt on the 5th, with a new moon in your income house. This new moon will be opposing Uranus in your house of other people’s money, and squaring Pluto in your house of true love. Perhaps you and your love aren’t on the same page regarding a financial situation, or your child has a large expense. Alternatively, funding for a creative project may suddenly go awry. This isn’t such a new influence- Uranus has been sending you surprises in your money sector for 2 1/2 years, and Pluto has been drudging up issues regarding love, children, and creativity since 2008. The two planets have been squaring each other since June 2012, forcing you to confront any issues you have with love and money. They will continue to do so until 2015, so you may as well start listening. They know what they’re talking about. Coming back to this month, on the 13th, the Sun in your financial sector will square Jupiter in your 11th house of hopes and wishes, and the funding for a long-term goal could hit a snag. As if that weren’t enough, your ruler Mercury will conjunct hard-knocks planet Saturn twice this month in your communication house- once on the 8th and once on the 30th (and again next month- argh!). If you didn’t sign a contract on the 3rd, for the love of all that is good and holy please don’t do it now. If a contract isn’t on the table, you might instead have issues with a car or sibling. There’s always the chance that instead of bringing bad vibes, Saturn could bring stability to a contract, so if you have to sign something on the 8th you might be able to get away with it. However, because Mercury goes retrograde on the 21st, you definitely want to avoid the 30th. Since Mercury is your ruler, its retrograde is extra frustrating for you. You may find a project close to your heart needs to be re-configured, career matters seem sticky, or perhaps your car suddenly has a host of problems. You don’t need me to tell you that you shouldn’t even think of buying a new car or taking a new job until Mercury turns direct. Next month, on November 13th, Mercury will resume forward motion at the same time the Sun in the 3rd house will trine Jupiter. Give your final word then. You might be wondering if this month brings ANY good news. Well- it does! On the 10th, Venus in your 4th house of home will trine Uranus in your 8th house of other people’s money. A home loan may come through, or you may be the recipient of an inheritance. Perhaps your home life will go through an epic transformation that you didn’t anticipate. The lunar eclipse in this same financial sector on the 20th makes an influx of cash a real possibility. Just make sure you avoid moving or signing contracts when Mercury turns retrograde on the 21st! Mars enters your sign on the 8th giving you tons of energy and drive. This is a fortunate aspect that only comes along every 2 years. Unfortunately, you may find yourself beating your head against the wall once Mercury goes retrograde. The energy of Mars + the delays of retrograde = frustration. Sweat it out at the gym, Virgo, and breathe. It will pass. Specifically, it will pass after November 12th, when Mercury will go direct and you’ll still have Mars in your sign. On the 20th, Mars will oppose Neptune in your 7th house of partnerships. Neptune has been transiting this house for a while, casting a fog over your partnerships. This dreamy planet doesn’t play very well with aggressive Mars in your sign, and you may find yourself in a confrontation with your significant other on this day. Luckily, on the 26th, the Sun in your 3rd house will trine Pisces in your partnership house, bringing communication back to a manageable level. Even better, on the 31st, Mars in your sign will trine Pluto in your 5th house of true love, making for one helluva sexy Halloween. Why not make scary, sexy!
