Aries October 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


This is the month before life becomes a lot more exciting, with Jupiter’s return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery early next month. As you would expect, with life getting ready to become a lot more vibrant, there would be a lot of behind the scenes work being done. In reality, that is not the case, with everything naturally adjusting itself. Things are starting to move professionally, but it won’t be until next month that this will warrant any real focus on work/life balance. However, knowing what is coming it would be wise to get a jump on that.

Instead, there is a lot of focus on both your relationships and money matters this month, in both cases for all the right reasons. The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your relationship sector, shining the solar spotlight on your relationships. This year there is a lot less push back, therefore a lot less relationship tension. However with Mercury, planet of communication only in your relationship sector until the 10th October, it is important to have the communication lines open. This is the same day that a Full Moon brings a chance to commit to your relationships, the future and the journey ahead.

In the meantime, there is a lot of support around Jupiter, as he spends the last full month of a 13 month visit to your financial sector. While your annual financial review begins on the 24th October, when it comes to taking your financial power back and creating the framework for future financial growth, this is the month that everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from. In the meantime, throughout the month make time for navel gazing and quality time out to hear yourself think.

Love 2017Aries October 2018 Love Horoscope

The focus will always be on your relationships at this time of year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your relationship sector. Every year is going to be different and this year that is definitely the case, but for all the right reasons. Ceres, queen of nurturing is making her first visit to your relationship sector in four years and is spending the whole month digging deeper into what you really want and need from your relationships. There is also a lot less push back, which means a lot less relationship tension.

While Venus, planet of love has been and gone, she will return for a rare double dip visit next month, making sure that you get what you want from your relationships. In the meantime, this is a month when the relationship housekeeping takes place and that includes working with Mercury, planet of communication to ensure the communication lines are open. Mercury is only in your relationship sector until the 10th October, making it important to work with him from the get go, making communication a priority.

The Sun will continue to keep the spotlight on your relationships until the 23rd October and that requires keeping your eyes open and head out of the sand. The Sun demands that you get real, but whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, you can’t turn desires into reality, without getting real. A New Moon on the 10th October is an opportunity for new beginnings, a fresh start and to commit to your relationships, the future and the journey ahead. While the romantic focus is more subtle, trusting your heart will naturally move matters of the heart in the right direction.

Money 2017Aries October 2018 Money Horoscope

This is a big month on both the income and financial fronts, with a mix of the ordinary and the extraordinary. The ordinary is that the Sun will always return to your financial sector this month, turning the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters. What is extraordinary is what the solar spotlight will reveal, when the Sun returns on the 24th October. By then Jupiter will have been in your financial sector for over a year, with the planet of luck and expansion getting ready to leave early next month. At the same time Mercury will have been here since the 10th October.

This will ensure you already have the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game, by the time the Sun returns. Yet you also have Venus, planet of money spending the whole of October in your financial sector. This is extraordinary when you consider that Venus is normally only here for 24 days and this is a 31 day month. It is Venus’ retrograde turn on the 6th October that will keep her here all month and with lucky Jupiter in his last full month here for another 11 years, this will ensure nothing is left unexplored.

However, the focus is not just on your financial situation and money matters this month. Uranus is not only spending his last full month in your income sector before retrograding back out early next month, but for the first 24 days is on his own. This is a valuable chance to regroup and to reflect back on not only the journey of the last few months, but how your values and expectations have changed during that time. From the 24 days a familiar sense of resolve and determination will kick back in.

Career 2017Aries October 2018 Career Horoscope

Things dial back a bit professionally this month and this is just what you need. The Sun and Mercury only left your work sector late last month, wrapping up a busy three months on the job front. While all the planetary activity is now over for the year, there is plenty of momentum and traction, but without the need to have your work hat on 24/7. With Saturn in his first full month in direct motion in your career sector and Pluto turning direct on the 1st October, the brakes come off your professional year, but don’t expect things to rush forward.

Both Saturn and Pluto are in this for the long haul and with both well supported, especially by Uranus in your income sector, there is no urgency. Instead, with a busy three months on the job front having just run its course, this is a chance to regroup. As Pluto turns direct this is a chance to not only turn all your attention onto the future, but to slowly start moving things forward. Yet there is no hurry, with the Moon’s visits to your work and career sectors creating some of the most important days of the month.

The Moon will move through your work sector from the 6th October to the 8th October. Coming full circle from last month’s New Moon, this first visit since the Sun and Mercury left is a valuable chance to regroup. The same will be the case when the Moon returns to your career sector from the 15th October to the 17th October, with the first visit since Pluto’s direct turn a chance to check in. In both visits, the Moon has the ability to not only sharpen your instincts and bring valuable clues, hunches and insights, but to trigger developments.
