The Moon conjoins impulsive Mars on October 9, so you might be eager to clear up any emotional rubble from the Mercury retrograde, which also ends today. There may not be as much private time as you'd like at the New Moon of October 12. Even when engulfed in a group, you can manage to steal away for the moments of seclusion that you need now. The Full Moon on October 27 sets you up for serious romance, possibly with someone as serious as you are. Make sure you see things the same way, because there will be no changing anyone's mind.
Love - Romantic
If you cross a Scorpio in love, watch out! Their sting is much worse than any warning you'll receive. Luckily, this month is a good one for your sign in romance. On the 6th and 7th, you're finding all kinds of new things to love about your partner. From the way he or she looks at you to the way you laugh together, it's all good. By the 10th, you may not agree on how to handle something, but clear communication can help keep things civil. By the 11th, 12th, and 13th, you're entering a very lucky time, when obstacles begin to drop away, and life-changing results happen. If you want to put new plans into motion, this is your time! Single Scorpios find that the time around the 13th can help them communicate better with new partners. You're not the greatest at getting your point across sometimes. But if you're willing to let yourself be a little vulnerable, there's nothing you can't do. The 23rd and 24th bring a sexy new time to your developing union. Showing your affection with flowers is great. But pleasing each other in different ways keeps your love fresh and new. Don't be afraid to show your affection. It's not a weakness.
Business - Money
In October the focus is on connecting and it can be done informally. This gives you permission to be the same person whether at a business event or out with a group of friends for pleasure. Be the real you, because they know if you are acting (even though you think they don't). Be prepared from the start of the month it involves merging with others. Practice what you will say. Be ready with contact information. Remember that someone has made an emotional decision to connect when they give you info, so follow up later. You may feel less professionally social from the 6th to the 9th good days to contact by email, especially if the subject deals with money. Opportunity knocks the week of the 12th and a mentor could appear at one of your networking sites. Take special advantage of your lucky days: the afternoon of the 13th and 14th. Explore job prospects and send resumes. On the 22nd, it isn't about you. Other people are just in a super-critical mood. Try to relax during off-time between the 27th and 29th if you are feeling stressed. Not to worry, no one can do the job as well as you can. Dedication pays off next month.
