Aquarius Horoscope For October 2017
The news is exciting and will likely be very welcome! Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, will move into Scorpio on October 10 and light your tenth house of fame and honors for a whopping thirteen months, until November 8, 2018. Jupiter is the great planet of good fortune and reward. Jupiter brings happiness, growth, and prosperity, and he asks nothing in return – Jupiter only wants to make you thrilled with the opportunities that will start to come your way.
All the work you put in over the past twelve years, since the last time Jupiter visited this part of your chart from October 2005 to November 2006, will come into play now. You are about to see considerable professional reward for our experience, savvy judgment, management style, and your ideas and ingenuity during the coming weeks and months. You will get access to influential people that you did not have before. You may also meet dignified, learned leaders from many walks of life, from academia to business, high tech, government, and creative fields.
The tenth house is your reputation, and ultimately your legacy in the world. It represents your ultimate contribution to society. While the other work-related house of your chart, the sixth house, rules the day-to-day work you do (the assignments), and how you do them (your tools, such as your computers and software), where you do your work (your office or other workplace), and with whom (your assistants and your team), the tenth house is the sum of all you do in your lifetime, the prestige and honors you gain, and how people of importance value your work. In short, it is the place that reflects your legacy that you are building throughout your life.
The tenth house reflects achievements that are hard won over time – luck tends to have little to do with the victories you score in this area of your chart. In ancient days, ancient astrologers used to call this the house of dignity, or the house of world leaders or leadership. It is what you achieve in your lifetime that will have lasting value, for Saturn, the planet of stability and longevity, is naturally associated with this house.
The fascinating part of this place in your horoscope chart is that the tenth house points to your family traditions and the many generations that came before you, and those who will subsequently come after. The person you are today, and perhaps the work that you do or will do, may have been shaped by the generations of your family who came before, for it brings into play your lineage.
We look to the tenth house to see the influence of the mother or the father, whoever had the greatest influence on your choice of career (originally or over time). Again, the influence of the parent almost always leaves an imprint, large or small.
The tenth house also shows how you fulfill your destiny in your chosen area of expertise and how you turn yourself into an authority in your field. You can choose how big you want to be – you can be president of the Parent-Teachers Association, or General Secretary of the United Nations. You are valued in any role you choose for yourself.
Jupiter is now in Scorpio, and for Aquarius and those with Aquarius rising, Scorpio rules the tenth house. Scorpio is a sign known to excel in the ability to dig deep, to uncover truth, to do careful research, and because you are a street smart Aquarian, you put disparate pieces of a puzzle together to create an answer that eludes others. You are superb at understanding others’ motives. You are the investigative reporter, and the prosecutor, uncovering scandal and bringing the perpetrators to justice. No one can lie to a Scorpio – nor to you, for you have Scorpio in such a prominent place in your solar chart.
This sign on your mid-heaven and tenth house of fame gives you an ability to be very detailed – Virgo often gets that reputation, but having Scorpio on this cusp of your career house merits the same accolade to you when it comes to your work. Scorpio is also a highly financial sign, with a natural flair for taking money and multiplying it over through investment, so having this sign on the cusp of your tenth house might give you an interest in working in a financial field. Observers of Scorpio – and you have it on your career cusp – often have three distinct chapters of their lives, switching careers completely at various points in their lives.
You may not have to wait long to see noticeable, gratifying results of Jupiter’s move this month into Scorpio on October 10, to remain until November 8, 2018 next year.
Use the luckiest day of the year, October 26, and the day before it, October 25 (both weekdays), to have an important interview, launch a new product or service, start an advertising or publicity campaign, or to do any other important move to advance your career and profits.
Circle October 26 on your calendar, for it is the luckiest day of the year, when the seeds you plant on this day are likely to grow into mighty oak trees. On this day, the Sun will make his annual alignment to Jupiter – the Sun has the power to take the goodness of Jupiter and enlarge it many times over. This is everyone’s luckiest day, but everyone will host this alignment in a different part of the individual charts – for you it will happen in your career house.
Use the luckiest day of the year, October 26, and the day before it, October 25 (both weekdays), to have an important interview. When you meet, show that you are a big thinker. Go in with more than one idea. (I always say to myself, one idea is a dangerous thing. Always have several in case your main idea does not interest the VIP you are seeing. You already have that person’s attention, so barrel forth with the second idea.) These two days, October 25 and October 26, would also be perfect for launching a new business or new product or service. Open the doors of your own business or hammer out a deal with a client on this day. Or, give a speech on this day, and share your expertise in a moving, memorable way.
Next month will be just as important for you, because the new moon, November 18, will be critical for your advancing professional stature. New moons are super-powerful. Have your resume and CV ready. If you are self-employed, be ready to launch advertising, social media, or a new product. You don’t have to capture your dream career situation on this day, but you do have to take a first step.
Now let’s look at the rest of October. You have a strong emphasis on travel, but due to complicated crosscurrents at this time, I am not sure those trips will go easily, but if you prepare carefully, you will have a better chance for success.
The full moon will be in Aries, an entrepreneurial sign that does well working in new areas, acting like a pathfinder in new technology or in any field that requires you gain expertise as you go along – it’s such a new area, few people have any experience in it. This full moon may have you traveling a short distance – within a day’s drive – to see a client. The ruler of Aries is in your eighth house of other people’s money, so it appears that you will travel to sell your goods or services.
The problem is, Pluto will be in hard angle to this full moon, based in a hidden part of your chart, your twelfth house. This is what I worry about – have you ever had a meeting with someone who had no authority to say yes or no to your idea, because the person behind the scenes, who you can’t reach, holds the real power? It’s happened to all of us, but I don’t want this to happen to you now! It can be so frustrating. See if you can find out if the person you may be seeing really does have the power to make a deal or is simply a marionette of Oz behind the black curtain?
If you are asked to sign papers now, I worry that the party you are signing with might be very demanding and require many changes to the contract that you may find hard to swallow. If you have to sign, give yourself a space of days from this full moon. I particularly like October 16, when the Sun will be in ideal angle to Saturn – the deal would have longevity.
Mars will be touring your eighth house, a holdover from last month, so it’s clear your expenses have been high and you are motivated to find more money. Venus will cuddle up to Mars on October 5 – the SAME day as the full moon, so this suggests your charm may be enough to get at least some of the points of the agreement to be pleasing to you.
If this full moon finds you traveling a short distance to enjoy nature for a long weekend, say, Friday, October 6 through Sunday, October 7, that weekend is likely to be a very sexy and affectionate one for you. Single or attached, this will be a sweet weekend for you. It is exceedingly rare to have Venus align with her lover Mars – this will not happen again until 2019 – so make the most of this special time.
If you are an Aquarius with a birthday that falls on February 2, plus or minus four days, you will feel this full moon the most. Having said that, I will say that Aries, a fire sign, blends well with your air-sign Aquarius Sun, so you have another point in your favor here. In your case, you could turn things your way, if you are patient with the person who is being so bossy.
Next, the new moon of October 19 will fall in Libra, and again, encourage travel along with other topics. If you do go somewhere, you will likely need to go quite a distance. The other areas covered by the ninth house, where this new moon will fall, will include publishing and broadcasting projects; any efforts made toward getting an advanced degree, such as in undergraduate or graduate school; international relations; matters involving immigration (passport, green card, visa); and court cases.
The problem with this new moon will be Uranus at 27 degrees Aries, the planet that strikes suddenly and sweeps out all that is no longer of value, in a swift, shocking way. This time Uranus will aim his canons directly to the new moon, Sun, and Jupiter, all clustered close at 27 degrees in your ninth house, making this an exact hit. Uranus is your guardian planet, so this aspect has slightly more weight for you.
This new moon will give everyone difficulty, depending on the house where this aspect falls. Having the Sun and moon conjunct Jupiter is no small advantage, but as luck will have it, Uranus is on a rampage, and will be using a my-way-or-the-highway method of persuasion. The areas of difficulty will center on the topics listed above, namely, distant travel, international relationships, immigration, the media, university study, or a court case. One of these areas will become a big blinking light that will require your immediate attention.
You have had some experience with this type of thing this year, back on April 11 – can you recall anything that happened back then? Look at your past emails to see what you were discussing that entire week to possibly get a clue of what could come up. I say this realizing that Uranus is always about the unpredictable.
If your birthday falls on or within four days of February 16, you will have a special edge, in that this new moon will be in perfect angle to your Sun.
Romantically, this month your relationship should go well, depending on what happened last August on the total eclipse of August 21. I felt things would go in your favor, so maybe you became engaged in the intervening time. This eclipse was staunchly in your favor, so even if you broke up – and that is often a very painful event – you will find that in time, the action favored you. One way or another, you cannot lose.
This month, when Venus tours Libra, October 14 until November 7, you will turn heads and find your popularity on the dating scene rising. If you are attached, you will get more attention from your partner and have more fun – plan something! Venus teaches us that we don’t have to try too hard – you can simply be yourself, and you will draw others to you. Mars will be in Libra, October 22 to December 9, too, and Mars will boost your charisma quite a bit. You have so much going for you!
All Aquarians will want to buy new clothes for the coming season, and women members of the sign may want to buy new colors of makeup, and see about changing the color or cut of your hair during the time Venus will smile on you while in Libra. You will have a very social time, meeting many new people in October, and in November, you will have quite a flurry of activity in your career. You will need those new clothes to look your best.
December brings Mercury retrograde, from December 3 to December 22, washing out the holiday shopping season. You MUST shop for gifts in November if your gift is to have the wonderful effect you want it to have. I won’t let you buy electronics in December! Buy electronics now, but avoid buying when Uranus (the planet that rules high tech electronics) is stamping around the heavens in an angry mood. That means you need to stay as far away from October 19 as you can. (Mercury rules the moving parts in all machines, and the electronics too, which is why both planets will affect you.)
November will be a very happy month, so start now by simply drawing up your holiday shopping list. Don’t rely on last minute express mail like UPS and FedEx. I am seeing terrible weather conditions in December, and an overload of shipments that will keep these and other similar shipping companies struggling to keep up. Shop early! Buy toys first!
The good part about December will be that you will have a chance to go to many parties, another reason you need to get your wardrobe ready now. Mercury retrograde will bring you in contact with many friends and relatives of your past – it will be fun catching up.
You are on the verge of a major career breakthrough, the biggest of recent memory, going back more than a decade. All that you worked to achieve over the past twelve years is now coming to a pinnacle point. Jupiter, the great good fortune planet, is heading to your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement on October 10, in a rare, thirteen-month visit, to stay in your prestigious career sector until November 8, 2018.
Opportunity will rain down on you like confetti. VIPs will show they believe in you, and they will go out of their way to help you succeed. You will begin to think big and broad, and after the coming year is done, you may feel you didn’t see the potential in ventures that you do now as you go forth. Take your ideas seriously, for one or two may have weight and enormous profit potential.
Mars will tour your eighth house of finances while in Virgo from the start of the month until October 22, suggesting that you may be negotiating a financial deal, or simply have higher-than-usual-expenses, forcing you to juggle accounts to pay bills. This trend started last month, but happily this high spending period will abate when you get to the third week in October. In the meantime, you may get good news about money when Venus and Mars align on October 5.
This same date, October 5, will bring a full moon in your house of short distance travel, so you may be travelling to finish up a business deal. Pluto will be in hard angle, so you may have to finesse the deal that you hope to get done. Pluto can be very pushy, so prepare for a cliffhanger, not knowing which way the client will go. If you can satisfy this client, you will be able to sign the papers – I like October 16 – but if the demands are too detrimental to you, you may walk away.
This same part of your chart rules siblings, so you may hear news that involves your sister or brother.
The new moon of October 19 is mixed. It falls in Libra, which is a plus for you, as Libra blends well with your Sun sign, but the problem is, your ruler, Uranus, will oppose that new moon and Sun, as well as Jupiter, indicating tension will arise from unexpected events. Something at work may hit the skids and will require more attention than you had ever anticipated. It appears something is happening in regard to foreign travel, an international relationship, the media, academia, or the courts to give you pause.
A work project may be heading in the wrong direction, and will need your guiding hand to tilt it right again. A partner in love or business, one you collaborate with at work, may be difficult or maddeningly apathetic, so don’t look to this person for help.
The move of Mars into Libra on October 22 until December 9 will be good news. Mars will light your house of foreign people and places, so if your work brings you in contact with people abroad or foreign markets, you will see this area brim with opportunity, even though the new moon of October 19 will present a problem – it will be up to you to find the solution.
Libra, the sign of the new moon October 19, is a sign very compatible to yours, as you are an air sign, and so is Libra. You may now travel quite far or take up special university studies. If you need to take legal action, say, to file a patent or trademark, you can do so in late October with good results.
Watch October 26, the luckiest day of the year, when the Sun in Scorpio will align with Jupiter in Scorpio. On this day, or the day before October 25, launch a new business enterprise, or schedule a meeting, interview, or presentation – your chances of success on this day will be so great, they will be off the charts.
You may get positive publicity on this day that puts you over the top. Carefully plan your biggest initiation of the month for this day – it’s pure gold. The aspects of October 26 won’t happen in your solar house of fame and prestigious achievement until again until October 30, 2029 – this alignment is that rare and that special!
