Libra October 2017 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


For the majority of the past 13 months there has been both personal and relationship pressure and while this will eventually prove empowering for you and your relationships, you’re ready for it to end. Another theme that is about to come to an end, is that for the past few months the lines between the past, present and future have been blurred. With Jupiter in Libra since last September, you’re at the start of a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion.

Yet when the Sun returned to a reflective part of your chart in late August, this began the month long wind down of your old solar year. The closer Jupiter got to leaving Libra, the more the planets moved into the closing phase of their cycles, putting their focus on the past. It was only on the 23rd September, 18 days before Jupiter is due to leave Libra that the Sun returned, kicking off your birthday month and new solar year. Then a week later Mercury returned, shifting your mental focus onto the road ahead.

Yet as Jupiter finally leaves Libra on the 11th October, Venus and Mars are still in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart. It won’t be until Venus returns to Libra on the 14th October and Mars on the 23rd October that you’ll finally be ready to embrace the future you’ve spent the last 13 months preparing for. As that process continues, Jupiter’s return to your income sector not only kicks off what is destined to be a potentially lucrative 18 months on the income front, but an opportune period for job growth.

Love 2017Libra October 2017 Love Horoscope

As is often the case at this time of year, there could be some relationship tension at times. This is the price you have to pay for having long term planetary activity in your relationship sector and also the safeguard to ensure your own needs aren’t neglected. Uranus has been in your relationship sector since 2010 and won’t leave until 2019 and as the planets move through Libra, which they do at this time of year, they will move into opposition.

However, with Eris in your relationship sector since 1926, you have known it no other way. What has made this more challenging this year, is that you have had Jupiter in Libra since September 2017, with that battle to balance your personal and relationship needs an ongoing challenge. Jupiter’s departure from Libra on the 11th October will take a lot of that pressure away, but until the last planet leaves Libra in December that balancing act will remain.

Fortunately you have Saturn in your communication sector and now in direct motion this is a chance to push forward on the communication front. There is also likely to be some romantic developments this month, triggered by Venus, planet of love’s return to Libra on the 14th October. As the planet of love and guardian of your relationships Venus is not so much immune to any balance issues between your personal and relationship needs, but adept at juggling them. For the first time in 17 years Venus will return to find the South Node, the force behind August’s lunar eclipse, in your romantic sector. This could create some real magic.

Money 2017Libra October 2017 Money Horoscope

To start with it is business as usual, which means no planetary activity in either of your two money houses and no money gods to be seen. This is not unusual for this time of year and especially the early part of the month. For by the start of October all the planetary activity on the financial front for the year has usually finished months ago and the solar spotlight often doesn’t shift onto your income situation, matters and options until the Sun returns on the 23rd October.

The Sun returns at the same time every year, always has and always will. So it’s not surprising then, that there should be a sense of anticipation from the get go. After all, in terms of planetary activity on the income front, the Sun’s return is the start of a period of each year that is payday for you. However, by the time the Sun returns on the 23rd October everything will have changed and it changes 12 days earlier, on the 11th October. This is the date that you’ve been waiting for all year and the date that things irrevocably change. For this is when Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion returns to your income sector for the first time since 2006, kicking off your luckiest and most potentially lucrative year in over a decade.

In reality, while Jupiter is here until November 2018, you will have planets on board to exploit every last potential through to March 2019. Jupiter returns every 12 years, but this is the first, last and only time in our lifetime that he will return to find Neptune in your work sector. This is massive news on both fronts. Mercury’s return on the 17th October will give you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game, while the Sun will turn all the spotlights on when he returns on the 23rd October.

Career 2017Libra October 2017 Career Horoscope

When Ceres left your career sector late last month she brought all planetary activity on the career front to a close for the year and in the process changed the dynamics. Until then, the professional gods were dividing their attention between work and career matters. Two months after the last planet has often left your career sector for the year, Ceres left you with a clear sense of professional direction. However, this is the point where all the focus shifted back onto your work situation and job matters. For it is here that Neptune and Chiron are located and they are about to experience a change in fortune.

Chiron has been in your work sector since 2010 and Neptune since 2012, so are now the background to your professional game that has become part of the landscape of each professional year. Both are in retrograde motion, as they always are at this point of the year and with Neptune turning direct next month and Chiron in early December, they’re already slowing down. Also the norm at this time of year, is for the planets lining up to return to Libra to move into opposition. This was especially so last month, with any work tension and job pressure a call to slow down and pace yourself.

Things continue as normal on the job front, with Neptune and Chiron working to make the most of the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped job potential. However, everything changes with Jupiter’s return to your income sector on the 11th October. This opens to the doors to an 18 month period of income growth, one that will see Jupiter working with Neptune and Chiron on the job front.
