Horoscope for Taurus: October 2017.
Taurus Horoscope for October 2017
By Susan Miller
This is a big month, for Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, will change signs, a rare event that happens once a year. It takes Jupiter twelve years to revolve around the Sun, so it takes Jupiter twelve years to reach Scorpio, the sign it will enter on October 10. Once there, Jupiter will unpack his things and remain there for nearly thirteen months, all the way until November 2018 next year. Jupiter will make a certain part of your house glitter and glow. I am getting ahead of myself, because there is other important news that we need to discuss first.
As October opens, Mars is in Virgo, a fantastic place for Mars to be, for Mars will light your fifth house of true love. Mars first entered your house of romance on September 5 last month. Things started to cook once last month's new moon, also in Virgo, September 19, lit up your house of love, and it was the only one of 2017 to do so. The fact about astrology is that you can have wonderful aspects, but if you don't have a new moon, it’s almost impossible to access the good energy that is there to help you. You are still in the flow of that helpful new moon, and you have Mars to help you, too. If your birthday falls on May 18 or near that date, you were to get a double dip of pleasure, for the degrees of last month's new moon (September 19) was to help you. Yet all Taurus will see their social life take flight - no one will be left out.
Now you are in October, and you have another rare and wonderful aspect to celebrate on October 5, when Venus and her lover Mars, will embrace in Virgo in your house of true love. You will certainly have powerful charisma and magnetism. Taurus is ruled by Venus, so with Mars close, you will have sex appeal to spare. If you are single and hoping for love, you must circulate in early October.
Conception and the care of children also take place in the fifth house, so if you are attached and hope to have a child, or adopt one, this is the month to get serious about that dream. If you are not dating and you are a woman, this would also be the month to freeze your eggs to give yourself more time to meet someone special and fall in love.
October 5/6 is the full moon in Aries 13 degrees, with influence for plus or minus four days. This full moon falls in your house of secrets, so you may hear of a secret that someone has kept from you. This full moon is in hard angle to Pluto so you could have concerns about money or identity theft. Be vigilant. If you are in a court case, the other side might be quite ferocious and ruthless about getting their way - it may shock you to learn how unfair this person's demands can be. Pluto is in your ninth house of foreign people and places, travel, international relationships, academia, the courts, and the media in terms of broadcasting and publishing. One of these areas may concern you.
Alternatively, you may have interaction with medical or psychological personnel, for yourself or to accompany a friend or family member to a doctor.
By October 10, you will get to the exciting part of the month, when Jupiter, the planet of happiness and growth, good fortune, and financial gain, will enter into Scorpio for the first time since October 2005 to November 2006, a period of thirteen months. This move of Jupiter will crown you the sign most likely to marry in the last quarter of 2017 or sometime during 2018, the period ending in early November. If you do expect to marry, you will have chosen one of the finest years possible.
If you are already wed, you both will grow closer in this period, and you will find time for more fun together. You will likely travel, most likely internationally, to a location you can both enjoy discovering the facets of the city together.
If you are not dating, not married, and not particularly interested in getting married, or even if you are in one of these two categories, you can ALSO use the brilliant energies of Jupiter for forging powerful business collaboration or partnership and sign official papers together. The seventh house is a contractual house between two parties where both will benefit from the association, bringing talents and skills the other lacks. As long as both parties are as committed to the success of the venture - something you will sense early on if this person is the right one for you in this business venture - success will almost be assured. You can hire an agent, manager, publicist, specialist lawyer, acting coach, writing partner, or other person you will work together in a close, collaborative way.
If you are the agent or publicist, for example, then you will find a talent who turns out to be a gem, or one of the talented people you already represent now will blossom into quite a successful person.
This wonderful influence will be at play for more than a year, so you now stand at the threshold and can find ways to take advantage of it. This move of Jupiter is important for another reason, for Jupiter now crosses the line that separates the lower and upper part of the chart. This means you will take on a more public role from now on and continuing for the coming six years.
This month brings all kinds of events, as you will soon see. The new moon in Libra 27 degrees on October 19 is an enigma. On one hand, the Sun, new moon, and Jupiter will be huddled together in a lovely conjunction on one side of your chart, in your sixth house of work and health. You may begin a lucrative project, or start a new sport or fitness routine, as two examples. However, you will need to keep your antenna up and stay very alert.
On the other side of the chart, Uranus is opposing this little grouping and spoiling the pudding. Uranus seems jealous of the happy circle that the new moon, Sun, and Jupiter will form and will act up, demanding attention, throwing thunderbolts, and causing an unexpected problem. Jarring news about your health or a work project may come up, and you will need to have a schedule elastic enough to respond to what you have to do to correct anything that seems to be going in disarray.
Jupiter at this point will still be in the last degrees of Libra, and will move to protect you, so this is not all one-sided. It seems Jupiter helps you solve the problem. The focus you seem to be taking will be on your family - possibly about a parent or sibling - or you may be thinking about your physical residence. Something sudden will require you switch your attention to what is going on because your workload will start to become heavy, too. Once you get to October 22, Mars will enter your sixth house, giving much more emphasis to work and health for the coming weeks, until December 9.
Think back to what happened in your life on April 11 (or within four days of this date), for this month's new moon of October 19 reminds me quite a bit of that April 11 full moon that came by this year. The theme will be similar - how did you handle what came up? If you feel you could have handled things better, how? You seem to have done a good job of finding a fix back then, and will again now. If you can't recall, have a look at your email for hints of discussions you were having at the time.
I was thinking that I should mention that during December, Mercury will be retrograde nearly the entire month, from December 3 to December 22. You would not be able to shop in December, so it will be imperative that you gather up your gifts in November, which is due to be a good solid month. Shop as early in November as possible for holiday gifts, and you will ensure everyone will be happy with your selections - and that is the point when gift-giving.
The best is saved for last - October 26 will be the luckiest day of the year, plus or minus one day. Your luck will fall in the partnership / collaborative house, and Uranus will still be hanging out across the skies, like he was at the October 19 new moon. I wish Uranus were a little farther away, but by October 26, he will have moved past the peak, exact degree of the opposition; I feel you may be very pleased with developments on this day. Neptune, watching closely what is going on with the Sun opposed to Uranus, will offer his full support by summoning your friends to your side. Good news about your home, or a real estate deal, or help from a parent or other family member is also very possible on your lucky day.
Although the luckiest day of the year should be fortunate for nearly everyone, each sign will experience their luck in different ways. You will have special good fortune with committed love, collaborators, and partners as a primary bonus, but don't sign a contract quite yet. Let's let Uranus move on. You can, and will, outwit him.
October will be a big month for everyone, but perhaps the most for you. First, there's a good chance you will see evidence of just how spectacular romance can be for you. Venus and her romantic partner Mars will cozy up together in your fifth house of true love on the full moon of October 5. Be sure to be out and about if you're single - a blind date might set off exciting sparks. If attached, celebrate the love you have for each other on this rare day.
Mars will remain in your romantic sector until October 22, making this month your number one month for spinning more than one enchanting experience. You can focus on children or sports, and if you have days coming to you, you might want to take a vacation now, too. If you hope for a baby, this would be the month to get serious with your partner about making that dream a reality. A wish for an adoption may now come true.
If you are creative and paid for your ideas, this same trend will turn you into an idea factory, so set time aside to develop ideas. Ask someone you trust and admire to be a sounding board. Having someone near who believes in your talents and who can boost your confidence would be a big boost to your output. Planets in Virgo at times may make you too critical of yourself. The full moon of October 5 would be a fine time to schedule a session of give-and-take of ideas as your subconscious mind will be very active at this time.
More good news is in store for you just a few days later, for from October 10 on and continuing for thirteen months, you will be the most favored of all signs to marry. If you are already wed, you will see your partner prosper and to be quite optimistic about your future together. If you have had any problems, Jupiter will apply a soothing balm, and you can grow close again, if that is your goal.
Actually, you both can plan for the most enjoyable time you have had together in years. Be sure to put distant travel on your list - a trip to a foreign country could be splendid now. If you do not have a partner, are not dating, and are single, you will start to meet marriageable types. Taurus of any marital status will find that signing an agent, business partner, or other expert will prove to be a profitable idea, and the person you carefully choose can turn out to be quite a gem. If, conversely, you regularly represent talent, one person's popularity will stand out and surpass your financial expectations pertaining to this person in coming months.
You may see evidence of just how powerful this trend of collaboration and partnership will be for you on the luckiest day of the year, October 26, when Jupiter, planet of good fortune, will align with the mighty Sun in this area of your chart. Jupiter is all about the cornucopia of benefits, and the Sun will multiply the goodness of Jupiter many times over. You can use this energy for making a commitment in love or in business - it's your choice. This day (including the day prior, October 25, would be superb for getting engaged or choosing an agent or other expert. Don't sign a contract just yet, though, as I would like you to wait until next month to make things official. The full moon in Taurus on November 4 would be an ideal day for you to sign, even though it is a Saturday. (Not possible? Then November 3 would be good too.)
The new moon October 19 may bring in new assignments, but if so, be sure you are clear about what you will be expected to do. A point that is not transmitted by the client might throw your team into disarray and require you all scramble to redo the work already done. Uranus, planet of unexpected events, will oppose the Sun and new moon, the reason you need to strive for clear communication. Co-workers might become cranky and unruly. Or, because the Sun is involved, it may be that family or property-related news may surface that distracts you with an urgent matter at work that you simply must address.
