Love - Romantic
For Aries natives, love is as much an energizing factor as fun. This month, Aries natives are advised to look beyond the surface, to the real person within. On the 6th and 7th, things may be heating up in the bedroom, especially if you use a little imagination. By the 10th, one or the other of you may be feeling a little confused about where this is going. Take time to talk about your plans and goals for the union. On the 11th, 12th, and 13th, single Aries natives may find their prayers are being answered in a big way. Several astrological aspects during this time point to life-changing luck and new energy coming in to change your life for the better. By the 15th, you've got the Universe's support to move forward toward your goals in love. Just make sure you're being honest about who you are, not just adapting your partner's likes and dislikes as your own. Communication issues could come up around the 22nd and 23rd, so if you're not feeling heard, don't just scream louder. It may sound counter-intuitive, but listening may actually give you all the information you need to solve this once and for all. By the 23rd and 24th, your affection for each other heats up again.
Business - Money
The theme is "Presto Change-O" or in other words, you have an opportunity to meet transitions in high gear in October. As early as the beginning of the month the catchword is 'choose' an especially cool move because it places you more in control. Between the 6th and 12th, be aware that a lot of different changes overlap each other and it is not coincidental that they do. They are events repeating. The 15th and 16th are opportune times to smooth out difficulties. It is possible to speak the truth without burning bridges behind you. (A hint: praise publicly and criticize privately). On the 22nd, be prepared with a Plan B. Anything without one can be flawed already. The latter is something that could be pointed out in an important meeting. The 25th is your lucky day this month, and although it's a Sunday, in today's world you can still check out opportunities and even send out resumes if you're in the job market. You end the month with a better blending of minds in a teamwork kind of way. You've made the transitions and are on to the new chapter. Next month is a benchmark time that signifies you've reached a turning point.
