Aquarius October 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


Mars, planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos is not only spending his first and last full month in Aquarius, but is in the best form he’s been in since he returned in May. From the moment Mars returned on the 16th May, the planet that will normally fire up your passions and fighting spirit with a sense of urgency, was both slowing down and under pressure. Normally here for six weeks, after six weeks Mars instead turned retrograde, before retrograding back out in August.

When Mars returned last month it was to find that pressure during his first three months here was gone, but a much clearer field and also a lot more support. From the moment Mars returned in May he was slowing down, but from the moment he returned for his rare double dip visit last month he was speeding up. Not due to leave until the 16th November, Mars will continue to gain speed, confidence and momentum. Mars is receiving support from playful and adventurous forces, which in turn is fuelling a sense of romance, passion and adventure, not to mention a passion for adventure and your romantic and creative passions.

This is also fuelling your passions and confidence in general and this is seeping into every aspect of your life. Mars is a natural fit for what is happening professionally and while he has no direct connection with the planets in your career sector, this can’t help but fuel your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit. In fact, anything that gives you something to channel your passions, drive and confidence into will be a target for Mars. This is the month when, in all aspects of your life you’re able to proclaim ‘I’m back’.

Love 2017Aquarius October 2018 Love Horoscope

This is not the time of year when you can expect to find planetary activity in your romantic sector, yet during the first 24 days of the month that is exactly what you have. While Juno doesn’t have the influence of a full size planet, as the queen of commitment she is not a force you can say no to. Juno only returned to your romantic sector on the 30th September, so is literally in her early hours when you move into the new month. Fortunately, you also start the month with the Moon here as well and therefore with romantically charged lunar vibes in play from the get go.

The Moon literally returned just minutes after Juno on the 30th September, creating a situation where moving from September and into October will be like travelling through a wormhole. Until the very final hours of September there was nothing happening on the romantic front and hadn’t been since the Sun left in June. Yet you wake up on the 1st October to find romantically charged lunar vibes in play and a new sense of commitment and conviction that has literally kicked in overnight.

This is just a short visit by Juno, for she will turn retrograde on the 12th October and will retrograde back out 12 days later, on the 24th October. This is more a taste of things to come, for Juno will not only return in February, but just as Venus is returning to Aquarius. When the love gods offer a 24 day gift, you need to take it. This comes as the North Node is spending its last full month in your relationship sector, which requires nothing more than looking to the future, focused on the journey ahead.

Money 2017Aquarius October 2018 Money Horoscope

October is a transition month, a chance to regroup and let money matters settle, while you wait for income matters to have their turn. It was late last month that the Sun and Mercury left your financial sector, wrapping up three months of planetary activity. This brought all the planetary focus on your financial situation and money matters to a close for the year, allowing the money gods to pull out all the resources and reassign them onto the income front. Over the last three months the money gods have had to divide their attention between income and money matters.

While Mars returns to your income sector next month and Neptune’s direct turn just days later will usher in a more active push on the income front and a lucrative end to the year, for now there is a chance to regroup. Dreamy Neptune is in his last full month in retrograde motion in your income sector, while Chiron is in his first full month back, after retrograding back in late last month. With both in retrograde motion, this is a chance to regroup and get your bearings, before things start to move forward next month.

This makes the Moon’s visits to both your income and financial sectors important this month. The Moon will move through your financial sector from the 6th October to the 8th October. Coming full circle from last month’s Full Moon and as the first visit since the Sun and Mercury left, as your financial instincts and imagination kick in, this is a chance to regroup. In the meantime, the Moon’s return to your income sector from the 20th October to the 22nd October is the last before Mars returns to fire things up. Here this is also a valuable chance to regroup.

Career 2017Aquarius October 2018 Career Horoscope

Even before the Sun returns to your career sector on the 24th October this is already an exception professional month. So much so that this is the month that everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from. The journey to get to this month began a year ago, when Jupiter returned to your career sector in October 2017. Since then Jupiter has been working in the background, mainly on his own to create the framework for professional growth and ongoing professional success. It was last month that Venus returned, beginning the process of bringing things home.

By the time you move into the new month Venus has been here for three weeks, for what should be a 24 day visit aimed at fuelling your professional confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. Yet with 21 days of a 24 day visit over, there is little chance of Venus remaining for the full length of a 31 day month, but that is exactly what she does. Recognising a chance to bring things home, instead of moving on, Venus will turn retrograde on the 6th October. This will keep Venus here all month and will also ensure that while she will leave early next month, she will return in December to spend another month here.

The more hands on job of bringing things home begins with Mercury’s return on the 10th October, bringing with him the intellectually savvy edge and articulation needed to get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. By the time the Sun returns to shine the solar spotlight on your career and professional situation, matters and options on the 24th October, Jupiter will be in his final weeks. This is the month that everything until now has been leading up to. Yet it is also the month that everything from now will lead on from.
