Leo October 2017 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


Regardless of what else is playing out this month, you have two special passengers on board this month and they are passengers that are set to electrify your life for the next nine months and more. When Venus left Leo late last month, she brought to an end all the planetary activity associated with getting your new solar year off to an authentic start. Venus returned three days after the Sun left Leo and four days after a total solar eclipse, but she was still charged with giving your heart a voice and a say in what you wanted from this new solar year.

Venus returned to find Mercury and Mars still in Leo and between them they were able to capitalise on the solar eclipse and the new doors this had opened. Venus was the last to leave and this brought you to a point where you could then commit to the journey ahead. But it was just four days later that Ceres returned for her first visit to Leo in four years. This is not part of your annual update and is a special chapter, with Ceres spending three months updating your real needs and priorities.

This is the first time that Ceres has returned while the North Node is here in 18 years and as she won’t leave until June 2018, they will spend the next nine months today, leading you on an authentic and fateful course. This is going to put a filter on everything and that includes personally, professionally, financially and in your relationships. You’ll be more decisive, forks in the road will be no brainers and you’ll have a confident sense of direction. In a good month for home, income, work and relationship matters and even for travel or adventure, everything will benefit from this golden touch.

Love 2017Leo October 2017 Love Horoscope

Romantic and relationship matters are both in a good place this month. Your relationships because of the support they have from the communication gods and romantic matters because you’re starting to gain some momentum. Both romantic and relationships matters also benefit from having a force watching over things. On the relationship front it is the South Node, the force behind August’s lunar eclipse. For the most part this is a passive influence, focused more on keeping your relationships on an authentic path. However, it is this massive amount of communication support that creates the potential for some breakthroughs this month.

You have Jupiter in your communication sector until the 11th October Mercury, planet of communication until the 17th October and the Sun until the 23rd October. However, it is Venus’ return on the 14th October and Mars’ on the 23rd October that will really give your relationships a voice and create the potential for a breakthrough. In the meantime, Saturn is spending his second full month in direct motion in your romantic sector.

After five months in retrograde motion and little movement last month, Saturn is starting to move forward and due to leave in December he is wanting to see matters of the heart and all things romantic move forward. To that end Saturn is drawing a lot of support from adventurous forces, giving you the courage to move out of your comfort zone or out of any romantic rut. It is next month though that will really see romantic matters take off.

Money 2017Leo October 2017 Money Horoscope

While the Sun left your income sector last month, it is normal to still have planetary activity in your income sector as you move into October. Mercury only left in the closing days of September, leaving you with the smart head for money needed to have your head in the game from the get go. Normally Mercury will move through in just 15 days, but thanks to a romantic rut and a double dip visit, he had spent nearly two months here by the time he left.

This not only leaves you with a smart head for money, but a very sharp head for money and 20/20 hindsight. With Venus not leaving until the 14th October and Mars until the 23rd October, the most lucrative weeks of the year are right in front of you. Until she leaves Venus will continue to attract opportunities and until he leaves, Mars will give you the courage and confidence to fight for what you deserve. Mars’ departure on the 23rd October will bring all planetary activity on the income front for the year to a close, so there is a degree of urgency. However, it is not just about what you’re able to achieve during that time.

You’re just months away from some major and game changing developments on the job front. With Pluto in his first full month in direct motion in your work sector, both Venus and Pluto will be working with him to point work and job matters in a lucrative direction. In a month where Neptune’s last full month in retrograde motion in your financial sector still has you looking to the past there, on the income front you’re looking to the future.

Career 2017Leo October 2017 Career Horoscope

There are two things happening on the work front this month. The first is what you can see happening and the second is what is really happening. What you see happening is things barely moving. Pluto only turned direct in your work sector in the final hours of September. By the time you move into October Pluto, in your work sector since 2008, has been in direct motion for less than 48 hours. Already one of the slowest planets in the solar system, it will take Pluto weeks, if not months to gain any real traction.

The Moon was in your work sector as Pluto turned direct on the 29th September, so won’t return until later this month. This gave you an intuitive read on work and job matters as the tide turned and it’s that intuitive edge that needs to be your guide in the early part of the month. After five months in retrograde motion you’re not going to get any movement to start with and you don’t want to. Even right through to the Moon’s return on the 25th October, it is more about getting your bearings, adjusting to the shift in focus and looking to the future. This is where what is really happening this month comes in, with looking to the future hugely important.

Pluto is in your work sector from 2008 to 2024 and spends from April to September in retrograde motion. So this is something that happens at this time every year. Looking ahead means looking ahead to the Sun’s return in December, which is when your next annual update begins. Not this time. Looking ahead means looking ahead to Saturn’s return in December and the start of the three most powerful years on the work front you have ever or will ever live through.
