Scorpio October 2017 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


First impressions suggest that this is a very ordinary month, with no indications of the major changes afoot or how quickly things are due to change. While you have reached an especially good month across the income, work and career fronts, personally you’re more focused on navel gazing and looking at ways to put out the ‘do not disturb’ sign. This is the norm for this time of year and it can often be a time when you’re running on empty, with no more wind in your sails.

That is because, in the lead up to the Sun’s return to Scorpio on the 23rd October, you’re in the final weeks of your old solar year. Yet this year this will feel more extreme, because it is. That’s because, as you move into October you are also in the closing days of a 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion, one that began in 2005. If the end of 12 month solar cycle can leave you feeling like you are running on empty, the final days of a 12 year Jupiter cycle must be more extreme.

Then, with no warning, no lead up and no announcement, Jupiter returns to Scorpio on the 11th October and everything changes. Your birthday month and new solar year is still 12 days away by that point, but this is when Jupiter returns to not only kick off your luckiest and most expansive year in over a decade, but a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. The lines between the past, present and future will remain blurred to start with, but when Mercury returns to Scorpio on the 17th October and the Sun on the 23rd October, more and more new doors will open.

Love 2017Scorpio October 2017 Love Horoscope

With no planetary activity on the relationship front and continuous planetary activity on the romantic front from 2003 to 2026, things are definitely weighted onto the romantic side of things. Especially as all the planetary activity on the relationship front ran its course in early July. While this means you will have to be more mindful of your relationships yourself, there is some special support on the communication front.

It was in the closing days of September that the tide turned there, making it easier to connect and to keep the communication lines open. In the meantime, dreamy Neptune is spending her last full month in your romantic sector and she’s out to make the most of it. Romantic matters have had mixed fortunes over recent months, but have benefited from a lot of support from adventurous forces. If there have been or continue to be any challenges, these are more likely to be challenging your excuses, at a time when the doors are still open to the past and second chances.

Neptune and Chiron, also in retrograde motion in your romantic sector, gain some major support this month. It begins with Jupiter’s return to Scorpio on the 11th October. This will put Jupiter on friendly terms with both and guarantees romantic support through to March 2019. This is likely to boost your romantic confidence, even if you can’t put your finger on why. The second support is much more fleeting, but it is timely. Only the 14th October Venus, planet of love will return for a short 25 day visit to a nostalgic part of your chart. This nostalgic trip down love’s memory lane will tap into the romantic nostalgia already in the air.

Money 2017Scorpio October 2017 Money Horoscope

This is a point in the year when all the focus is on income matters or at least it has been since Saturn returned to your income sector in 2014. If it wasn’t for Saturn you would be waiting for the Sun’s return next month. Saturn may have turned direct in late August, but after five months in retrograde motion it took most of September to gain any kind of traction.

Even now things might be moving slowly, but due to leave in December Saturn is already determined to make his final months count. Saturn knows that he will not only have support during his final weeks, but with Mars not arriving until January and leaving in March 2018 that there is time to fully exploit all your potential. Mercury will return early next month, with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game and to start focusing on the ‘when, where and how’.

That’s the point where things will become more specific, giving you another month of building up strength and momentum, without the pressure of having to flex your muscles. This is also a month for building bridges, especially with Uranus and Eris in your work sector and the North Node and Ceres in your career sector. This is professional support that will remain strong for the rest of this year and well into late 2018. With the most lucrative months likely to be from November 2017 to March 2018, this is a month for cementing that backbone of support across the income, work and career fronts. With income, work and career forces so tightly aligned, a Full Moon on the work front on the 6th October could act as a trigger across the board.

Career 2017Scorpio October 2017 Career Horoscope

October is usually the point in each professional year where things start winding down and your focus shifts to bringing your professional year home. It’s not until the early months of next year that there will be a new surge on the work front and this is the point in any year that most planetary activity on the career front has run its course. However, even if that was the case, as Venus only left your career sector late last month, this would be something you were still processing.

At the same time, while you might not expect any planetary activity on the career front at this time of year, with the North Node here until November 2018, there will be plenty of ongoing momentum. The North Node, the force behind August’s total solar eclipse, will keep the wheels turning. And with Uranus and Eris in retrograde motion in your work sector, things were never going to go off the boil on the job front either. However, with Uranus and Eris in retrograde motion until January and the North Node focused more on keeping things on track, this should be a month for regrouping.

That is still the case, but Ceres’ return to your career sector just four days later, means career matters are still playing out. At the same time, a Full Moon in your work sector on the 6th October could see some unexpected developments on the job front. This comes just as income matters are coming back on line, creating the potential for a surprisingly good month across the income, work and career fronts.
