Scorpio October 2018 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


While the Sun doesn’t return to Scorpio until the 24th October, kicking off your birthday month and new solar year, you own this month from the get go. With Jupiter in his last full month in Scorpio, you’re in the final weeks of what is the foundation year of a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. You also start the month with Venus not only in Scorpio, but already here for three weeks and refusing to leave. Instead, Venus will turn retrograde on the 6th October, meaning she will still be here when Mercury returns on the 10th October and when your birthday month and new solar year begins.

While Venus will retrograde back out on the 1st November, eight days before Jupiter leaves on the 9th November, having spent nearly two months together by then, she holds the key to all that is possible. Venus will not only return in early December for a rare double dip visit, but not leaving until the 8th January she will allow you to move into the New Year with your heart engaged and holding Jupiter’s energy and promise with her. You’re not just moving into a new solar year, but the future itself.

This is a month for major new beginnings, but also a point that you have been moving towards since last October. This is the month that everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from. While your old solar year is still playing out during the major part of the month, the lines between the past, present and future are blurred all month. As if realising how important this month is for you personally, things are becoming fairly quiet on the professional and financial fronts, before coming to life next month. Especially on the income and job fronts.

Love 2017Scorpio October 2018 Love Horoscope

Venus, planet of love is spending the whole month in Scorpio and that’s a big deal, for a planet that will usually spend just 24 days here each year. In a 31 day month that is impossible, unless Venus does something out of the ordinary and that is exactly the case. Venus returned early last month and has already been in Scorpio for three weeks by the time you move into the new month. Yet rather than being in her final months in Scorpio, Venus is instead in her final days in direct motion. It is Venus’ retrograde turn on the 6th October that not only keeps her here, but will add to a strong sense of romantic nostalgia already in play.

For this comes just as dreamy Neptune is spending his last full month and Chiron, planet of healing is spending his first full month back in retrograde motion in your romantic sector. Even without Venus turning retrograde there was going to be a strong sense of romantic nostalgia and an opportunity for healing this month, with Venus able to exploit this. This also has longer range implications. Mars is returning to your romantic sector next month and will stay here for the rest of the year.

Because of Venus’ retrograde turn and the fact that she is not moving on, you will see out the year, Christmas and the New Year with the planet of love in Scorpio and the planet of passion in your romantic sector. The love gods are conspiring to create a lot of romantic nostalgia this month, but also to lay the groundwork for a romantically charged end to the year. In the meantime, with Uranus in his last full month in your relationship sector before retrograding out next month and Juno retrograding back in on the 24th October, even on the relationship front the focus is on the past.

Money 2017Scorpio October 2018 Money Horoscope

With no planetary activity in either of your money houses since the Sun left your financial sector in June and with the Sun not reaching your income sector until later next month, this should be another low key month for the money gods. Over the last three months, the only chance the money gods have had to make any impact, is during the Moon’s monthly visits to your income and financial sectors and they are fleeting. Yet that all changes this month, with both income and money matters getting their turn, fortunately at different times.

For when there is planetary activity in your income and financial sector at the same time this puts them in opposition, creating the potential for financial tension. That won’t happen, with income and money matters taking their turn. You begin the month with the Moon and Juno, queen of commitment in your financial sector, with both having just returned in the final hours of September. From out of nowhere, you start the month with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled and with a new sense of resolve that wasn’t there before.

The Moon will leave on the 2nd October, Juno will turn retrograde on the 12th October and will retrograde back out on the 24th October. This is a micro burst of activity on the financial front and it comes just before major developments on the income front. On face value there is nothing unusual about Mercury’s return to your income sector on the 31st October. Mercury returns once a year, with the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game. What makes this so important is that this is a chance to get your head in the game ahead of lucky Jupiter’s return just nine days later.

Career 2017Scorpio October 2018 Career Horoscope

October brings a chance to really stand back and on both the job and career fronts push the reset button. Collectively when it comes to job and career matters the focus is on the past, present and future, on where you’ve been and where to from here, but on both fronts in a big picture way. Eris, dwarf planet and warrior princess of the cosmos is spending her first full month on her own in your work sector in eight years and her last for another three decades. Here since 1926, Eris is the force that has been driving a sense of what you’re fighting for, for your entire life.

On her own and the only voice in play on the job front, Eris’ first, last and only full month on her own brings the kind of silence that allows you to reconnect with a sense of what you’re fighting for. In retrograde motion Eris is looking back, so on the job front this is also a chance to pull back and reflect. Uranus will retrograde back in next month and Mars will return on New Year’s Day, with the pace set to pick up again, but not this month. In the meantime, the North Node is spending its last full month in your career sector.

With 14 months of planetary activity on the career front having ended last month, there is more than enough traction, with the North Node focused on leaving you with a sense of professional direction. Where Eris is looking to the past on the job front, the North Node is looking to the future on the career front. Yet both are giving you time and permission to simply observe. You’re even able to push the pause button, knowing that life will start becoming a lot busier again from next month and even more so in the New Year.
