Leo October 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


When Mercury left Leo early last month, he didn’t just wrap up what was the tail end of your birthday month, but 14 months of continuous planetary activity. Now, with the North Node in its last full month in Leo, there is a chance to draw on the experiences of the past and gain a clearer sense of direction moving forward. With no more planets in Leo, it means there is no more pressure on Mars, as he spends both his first full month back in your relationship sector and his last, before finally leaving next month.

With Mercury, planet of communication in your communication sector until the 10th October, the Sun until the 24th October, Ceres all month and Venus, planet of love retrograding back in early next month, there is a massive amount of support from the communication gods. It was during Mars’ first three months in your relationship sector, from May to August, that clashes with planets in Leo created a lot of personal and/or relationship tension. You’ve emerged from that with a clearer sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, with communication turning everything around.

In the meantime, with Jupiter in his first full month in your home and family sector, there is a lot of focus on home, family and/or property matters this month. On the home front, this is the month that everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from and this couldn’t be more important. With Jupiter kicking off your luckiest year for love, matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative on the 9th November, this is also a chance to ensure you have the right work/life balance and the right balance between work and play.

Love 2017Leo October 2018 Love Horoscope

On face value all the focus is on your relationships this month, with Mars finally spending his last full month in your relationship sector. Yet there are small pockets of romantic activity that are in fact clues to something special, something that will soon take over everything. To start with it is all about your relationships, with Mars’ remarkable journey through your relationship sector at its most powerful point. Mars returned in May for what should have been a six week visit aimed at giving you a chance to shake and spice things up, in order to fight for what you want from your relationships.

Instead, Mars spent three months here, before retrograding back out in August. Yet just 29 days later Mars was back, this time back in direct motion and armed with a clear sense of what he’s fighting for from the get go. This is Mars’ first full month back, but also his last full month here and he’s ready to make it count. This time the challenges and roadblocks of the past are gone and in their place is a huge amount of support from the communication gods. While there is planetary activity in your communication sector all month, the most important days are until Mercury, planet of communication leaves on the 10th October.

With Mars not leaving your relationship sector until the 16th November and Venus, planet of love back in your communication sector early next month, that support between the communication and relationship gods will continue. In the meantime, pay attention to the romantically charged lunar vibes in play from the 12th October to the 15th October, holding onto a sense of romantic anticipation. While Mercury will return to your romantic sector on the 31st October, it is early next month that your luckiest year for love in over a decade kicks off.

Money 2017Leo October 2018 Money Horoscope

When the Sun and Mercury left your income sector late last month, this brought three months of continuous planetary activity to a close. This also had implications on the income and financial fronts, all of them good. While this brought all planetary activity on the income front to a close, this left you with all the resources needed to keep things on track. With the tide turning and things starting to move on the job front this month, ongoing income growth is in safe hands. This has allowed the money gods to hand income matters over to the professional gods to take from here.

In the meantime, this has taken the pressure off Neptune in your financial sector and it happened just days before Chiron, planet of healing retrograded back in last month. With income matters now in the safe hands of the professional gods, the money gods are able to regroup and shift all their focus onto your financial situation and money matters. With Neptune spending his last and Chiron his first full month in retrograde motion in your financial sector, the focus is not just on money matters, but on the past.

This has also dialled back the amount of focus required on both the income and financial fronts, with the Moon’s monthly visits a valuable chance to check in. The Moon will return to your income sector from the 6th October to the 8th October. Coming full circle from last month’s New Moon, this could trigger some unexpected income developments. In the meantime, the Moon will return to your financial sector from the 20th October to the 22nd October. With both planets here in retrograde motion, the financial instincts and imagination fuelled will come with 20/20 hindsight.

Career 2017Leo October 2018 Career Horoscope

The wheels are turning on the job and career fronts, though it might feel at times that they are turning in slow motion. While Saturn is spending his first full month in direct motion in your work sector, with Pluto not turning direct until the 1st October, the brakes are coming off but neither will be putting their foot on the gas. In the meantime, with Uranus in his last full month in your career sector before retrograding back out next month and Juno retrograding back in on the 24th October, on the career front all the focus is on the rear view mirror.

Uranus, Pluto and Saturn are the giants that will drive things on the job and career fronts for literally years. With Saturn in your work sector until December 2020, Pluto until 2024 and Uranus returning in March and then staying until 2026, they are all playing a long game. However, with the Sun returning to your work sector in December, the pace will gradually increase between now and then, giving you time to slowly gain speed and momentum. From the 1st October, all the focus on the job front is on the road ahead.

Yet throughout the month the focus on the career front will remain on the rear view mirror and that will continue next month as well. While the wheels are turning slowly, the Moon’s monthly visits provide a valuable window into what is happening behind the scenes and can also act as a trigger, giving things the right nudge at the right time. This makes it important to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground as the Moon moves through your work sector from the 15th October to the 17th October and through your career sector from the 25th October to the 27th October.
