The hard-working Virgo Sun is in good form, joined by Mercury on the 6th, and boosted by lucky Jupiter and influential/persuasive Pluto as they move through the first three weeks. Definitely a time to get a grip and get cracking, leaving no detail unattended and no stone unturned. Neptune will cause a minor slump on the 7th but that’s a passing moment. The 12th could bring good news or a triumph.
Venus in seductive and emotionally intense Scorpio from the 9th will add a hint of passion.
Although Mars returning to Aquarius on the 11th till mid November will cause a few waves with its rebellious, no-compromise and contrarian stance. And causing more than a few arguments and disruption as it squares Uranus on the 18th.
The final week sees a shift into fair-minded Libra which will be more sociable, diplomatic and balanced. There’ll be a few practical problems to untangle with Saturn around but an equal amount of high-octane energy from Mars so the month should end on a high.

Jupiter in Scorpio from October 11 2017 till early November 2018 – could be a money-magnet, usually good for business and joint finances, or attracting bonuses. Interest in secrets and what lies beyond reality in the hidden realms of the paranormal. Then into enthusiastic Sagittarius for a year.
Saturn: In Capricorn from December 20th 2017 till 2020/21 – usually coincides with a time of some financial shortages and the need to push ambitions ahead with persistence.
Uranus: In Aries from 1 March 2011 till May 15 2018 returning briefly from early November to early March 2019, when it leaves for good – hyper-active, energetic, determined to make new starts even if it means upsetting people, go ahead. From May 15 2018 into Taurus – changing attitudes to handling of money, possessions and resources especially in agriculture and our attitude to nature. Stays for seven years.
Neptune: In Pisces from February 2012 for thirteen years – religious, spiritual, has resonances with Muslim history.
Pluto: In Capricorn for sixteen years from Nov 2008 till 2024 = complete deconstruction and reconstruction of global economic and commercial structures and systems, as well as major changes in way in which governments work. In past times of Pluto in Capricorn (approximately every 250 years) there was territorial domination on a grand scale by charismatic leaders and ultimately a time of culture, learning, justice and prosperity.
