Libra October 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


Whether you are a September or an October born Libran, this is your month, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of October in Libra. Yet this is not only your month, this is also your year, even more so than when you moved into your last solar year, with Jupiter in Libra. Throughout his 13 month visit to Libra, from August 2016 to September 2017, Jupiter was under a lot of pressure from a line up of planets in your relationship sector. Jupiter’s true potential is often only realised after he leaves and that is what the planets have found when they returned to Libra this year.

With a lot less push back, you’re moving into a new solar year full of potential. So much so that Venus, who left Libra early last month, will turn retrograde on the 6th October, which will bring her back for a double dip visit on the 1st November. Venus will return to exploit any remaining untapped potential. By the time Venus left last month the Sun hadn’t turned the solar spotlight on, with untapped potential a lot easier to spot the second time around, as well as being easier to join the dots looking back.

In the meantime, there should be a growing sense of confidence, with Jupiter’s last full month in your income sector fuelling your confidence and ability to attract what you deserve across all the currencies in your life. While this is giving income matters a huge push, especially with so much other planetary support, the best months of the year for income and job matters will actually be November and December, leading into even more developments early next year. Jupiter’s job is to create the framework.

Love 2017Libra October 2018 Love Horoscope

This is a special month on both the romantic and relationship fronts and what makes it so special is almost the opposite in each case. What makes this such a special month on the romantic front is what is happening, which is having Mars in your romantic sector at this time of year, for the first time in decades. At the same time, what makes this such a special month on the relationship front, is a lack of planetary activity and the stripped back focus this creates. On both fronts, this is a continuation of an ongoing story.

Mars returned to your romantic sector in May, for what should have been a six week visit aimed at fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit. Instead Mars turned retrograde, extending that visit out to three months before retrograding back out. Last month Mars returned for a rare double dip visit and not due to leave until the 16th November, he’s committed to making his last full month count. You’ve had months of getting to know and understand Mars’ passions and fighting spirit, with no excuses and a growing sense of confidence.

Meanwhile when Chiron, planet of healing retrograded back out of your relationship sector last month, this left Eris on her own for the first time in eight years. With Uranus retrograding back in next month things will become more active but for now, with Eris on her own and in retrograde motion, this is a chance to get back to basics. Eris has been here since 1926, so is the one planet connecting you to what you want and need from your relationships since birth. Communication is a big deal this month with Mercury, planet of communication starting the month in Libra, but ending the month in your communication sector.

Money 2017Libra October 2018 Money Horoscope

On the income front, this is the month that everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from. Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion returned to your income sector last October and has been working since then to create the potential for ongoing income growth. Jupiter only returns every 12 years and not returning until 2029, he’s less focused on immediate gains and more about creating the conditions for ongoing growth. Venus is, however, only concerned with immediate gains, with her return last month a game changer.

By the time we move into the new month Venus has already been here for three weeks. Yet while she will normally only spend 24 days here, the numbers don’t add up when you consider that she will spend the whole 31 days of October here. That is because instead of moving on Venus will turn retrograde on the 6th October. Venus is broadening her scope and her determination to capitalise on all the gains Jupiter has helped set the scene for, including the past, second chances and untapped income potential.

With Jupiter leaving on the 9th November there is still new ground and opportunities to explore and Mercury’s return on the 10th October and the Sun’s on the 24th October will help with that. As Jupiter spends his last full month in your income sector, the call has gone out for all available money gods to help out and the Sun, Mercury and Venus have all answered that call. This will continue long after Jupiter moves on, with Venus not finally leaving until January 2019.

Career 2017Libra October 2018 Career Horoscope

This month brings a chance to regroup and to an extent retreat. However, this is less about checking out or a lack of motivation and literally because this is not just the calm before the storm, but there really is a chance to reflect. This is both because of what is happening this month and because of what is happening next month, which puts more weight on the first. What is happening this month is that with Neptune in his last and Chiron his first full month in retrograde motion in your work sector, all the focus is on the rear view mirror.

As the only two planets in either of your two professional houses, even if you wanted to push things forward you would be bucking the trend. Instead, with Neptune turning direct next month and Mars finally returning to fire things up, it is next month when the pace is set to pick up and pick up dramatically. Back in May Mars returned to a playful part of your chart, which normally means he is just six weeks away from your work sector. Yet thanks to a retrograde turn, at the start of the month Mars is still six weeks away and is no closer.

By the time Mars does return to your work sector on the 16th November he’ll be ready to make up for lost time and with Neptune turning direct just days later, once things kick off there will be no holding things back. At the same time, with the North Node returning to your career sector early next month, it won’t be just on the job front that things take off, with your whole professional game picking up. If the professional gods offer a chance to spend time in the slow lane take it, for things will be very different from next month.
