There are a lot of things about October that are set to take you by surprise, with things in play that should have long since run their course and other things that shouldn’t come into play until later next month, coming into play nearly 7 weeks ahead of schedule. This creates a month where there is an overlap between the middle and end months of the year, all concertinaed together. Those surprises are going to play out on the professional and relationship fronts, taking some of the focus off what is always a month that is more about money and financial matters. That will still be the case, with the Sun in your financial sector until the 23rd October, a New Moon in your financial sector on the 5th October and a lunar eclipse in your income sector on the 19th October. It’s on the professional front that the past and future will come together in a way that things don’t usually overlap, taking advantage of what the lunar eclipse in your income sector might trigger. The Sun left your work sector on the 23rd August and while things may linger on for a few weeks things will usually have run their course by September, creating a gap before the Sun’s return to your career sector on the 22nd November, triggering a push to bring your professional year home.
However, no one gave Mars and Venus the memo, for rather than things having run their course on the work front, Mars is still there and won’t leave until the 16th October, still here when Venus returns to your career sector on the 8th October, bringing forward what doesn’t usually come into play until the final weeks of the year. At the same time, while the Sun’s departure from your relationship sector last month should have wrapped up the relationship focus for the year, Mars’ return on the 16th October will reveal that you haven’t even begun to scratch the surface.
