Virgo October 2017 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


When the Sun left Virgo last month this brought your birthday month to a close, but until the last of his retinue leaves, you are still defining what you want from this new solar year. Mercury left a week after the Sun, so you start the week with the mechanics of your birthday month over and at least some form of a game plan and resolutions. However, until Venus leaves Virgo on the 14th October and Mars on the 23rd October, you’re still deciding what you want from the coming year and what excites you.

Mars won’t return to Virgo until 2019 and as the last planet to move through this year, his focus is on fuelling your passions and fighting spirit. When Venus and Mars do eventually leave Virgo, it will be to join up with the considerable developments on the income front this month. Neither will return while Jupiter is still here, but they don’t need to. In fact, they are holding back, not wanting to get caught up in any financial tension. For throughout his 13 month visit to your income sector, Jupiter has been at odds with Uranus in your financial sector.

This is keeping both sides on their toes, while it also means you’ll be motivated with Venus and Mars return to exploit all the income potential. When Jupiter leaves your income sector on the 11th October he’ll return to your communication sector, for the first time since 2005/2006. This will be especially good news for your relationships, who have been waiting for this. This comes during what is a good month for matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. It might feel like a corner has been turned there, because it has.

Love 2017Virgo October 2017 Love Horoscope

You are in a position where romantic and relationship matters will never completely go off the boil. Unlike your cosmic mates, that have planetary activity in their romantic and relationship sectors at certain times of the year and then need to wait another year, this is permanently turned on for you. That is because your relationship sector has been continuously active since 2003 and your romantic sector from 2008. And with Pluto not leaving your romantic sector until 2024 and Neptune not leaving your relationship sector until 2026, it will stay that way for many years to come.

It then comes down to what is happening here this month and in both cases there is nothing but good news. Pluto only turned direct in your romantic sector in the closing day of September, with the tide having just turned. With major romantic developments later in the year, this is a chance to shift the focus from the past to the road ahead and to slowly move forward. Here the focus is on fostering a sense of romantic confidence and anticipation. On the relationship front there has been a false impression.

As the planets move through Virgo each year they will move into opposition with Neptune and Chiron, in retrograde motion in your relationship sector. This could have seen personal and/or relationship tensions rise last month and again at times this month. Until Venus leaves Virgo on the 14th October and Mars on the 23rd October, there will be some pressure. Not only is this the norm for this time of year, with Jupiter returning to your communication sector on the 11th October, this turns into an opportunity for a major breakthrough.

Money 2017Virgo October 2017 Money Horoscope

With the Sun always spending the first three weeks of October in your income sector, the focus is always going to be on your income situation, matters and options at this time of year. However, with Jupiter in your income sector since September 2017, there hasn’t been a moment of this year when that hasn’t been the case.

However, there is a sea change this month, the transition having begun last month. It began with the Sun’s return on the 23rd September, just as Jupiter was moving into his final weeks. Then, it was Mercury’s return late last month that has given you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game. Now, with Jupiter leaving on the 11th October the handover has begun. Throughout his 13 month visit Jupiter has been looking to the future and bulldozing a path for future income growth. The message that the Sun and Mercury give Jupiter, is that they can take it from here.

This is when the sea change takes place, with Jupiter looking to the future, while the Sun and Mercury are focused on right now. If Jupiter has spent the last 13 months preparing for future income growth, then the Sun and Mercury declare that the future point is now. It is Venus’ return on the 14th October that will trigger the laws of attraction, while Mars’ return on the 23rd October will give you the courage to fight for what you deserve. Jupiter will leave on the 11th October, Mercury on the 17th October and the Sun on the 23rd October, leaving Venus and Mars behind. Between then and Mars’ departure in early December is when every last possible opportunity will be exploited.

Career 2017Virgo October 2017 Career Horoscope

While this may be a fairly quiet month on the professional front, this is not only the norm but something you need. After some very busy and active months on the career front in the middle months of the year and then all the intensity of August’s lunar eclipse on the job front, to have things settled and to know where things stand is important. However, you have also reached a point in the year where you are starting to sense a divine hand in play.

As you look back you’re able to start to see a pattern emerge, where coincidences have dictated which turn you took at any forks in the road or have just influenced where things stand. Things are not quiet on the work front this month because things have run their course from the year, but because you can sense that where you are now is where you need to be. Also you’re starting to trust that when it’s time to make another U turn or take a different fork in the road, you’ll know. What you’re experiencing is the impact of having the South Node in your work sector. This is the force behind August’s lunar eclipse.

But for the rest of the year and right through until leaving in November 2018, this is a force that is always keeping you on track. The month starts with the Moon in your work sector, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters from the get go and in the early days of the month. The Moon will return again from the 28th October to the 30th October, each time aligning with the South Node and giving you a chance to connect with the current that is keeping things on an authentic path.
