CAPRICORN: Monthly Horoscope October 2019
If you had plans to move or relocate, they should be finalized by October 4thof this week, when Mars moves out of your 9thhouse of travel. September saw you adjusting to a new setting, learning a new environment, and growing into your own: this energy is still available for the first week of October.
By October 4th, all planets will have moved into your house of self-actualization and vocation, meaning your focus will shift to settling into your goals for your career. Every time you move to a new place, your vision for yourself and your capacity also needs to shift. New places, whether they be a new job, new classes at school, or a literal move to a new location, offer new opportunities. People that you meet now may show you a completely new avenue for self-expression, or a new application of your skills that you didn’t realize was possible.
Now is the time to stay flexible and open to what opportunities arise, as there will be plenty. Pluto goes direct in your 1sthouse on October 3rdat the same time that Mercury moves into your 11thhouse of friendships, so this tells me that new connections are key to your transformation at this time.
Let someone inspire you to take a new direction. Be flexible and open to feedback from others. You have a lot to learn from those around you at this time, as there will be opportunity for creativity and connection this week.
I can see you getting tired this week, Capricorn. Verrrryyy tired. So don’t push yourself past your limits just to please others or strengthen connections. I know it feels like every single opportunity is of utmost importance right now, but if you show up haggard and grumpy, it won’t matter whether you made the time to connect or not, because you won’t be able to take advantage of the new connections.
We start off this week with the Sun in your tenth house square Saturn in your first onOctober 7th,which begins the slow down for you. You’ve been go go go for a few weeks now, and have some things to deal with that you’ve been putting off that now demand attention. You have to feel secure and comfortable in order to rise to the occasion, so make sure you’re setting yourself up for success now. Take a mental health day if you need it, or allow yourself to just do nothing for a single day. You need time to rest and recollect after all the changes that have taken place.
Both Mercury and Venus are in your 11thhouse of social connections this week, opposite Uranus on October 7thand 13th.You may be invited to many different social and networking events, or your presence may be requested at various occasions with friends and loved ones. While normally this would feel warm and inviting, it might feel more like overwhelm and stress. Remember that you don’t owe anyone your time and presence. Especially if your mind and spirit require rest now.
The Full Moon in Aries on October 13this about centering your home space—how you feel in your heart and root chakra, your connection to family and an active support system, and literally your home environment. Is your apartment in shambles? Do you rarely have a minute to yourself except after you turn off the lights? Have you connected with your family recently, chosen or otherwise? Now will be the time do it.
Watch out for taking on other peoples’ shit this week, as well as taking things too personally. Both are imbalances of ego attachment to expectations you place on others. With Jupiter sesquiquadrate Uranus on October 14th,you are open to inspiration that will help you move on to the next level of your spiritual practice, and you should focus on that this week.
Attachment to certain expectations, especially with your trusted friends, might bring down your mood and cause problems elsewhere, where you’ll find it hard to focus on the task at hand. With the Sun square Pluto in your 1sthouse activating on October 14thas well, this can be a time where you feel like you are owed a certain amount of attention or fulfillment. Check yourself if you feel entitled to certain energetic gifts from others. The only one who can truly make you feel worthy is yourself.
The later half of this week will bring some great connections to you in the professional field, maybe from an unexpected place like the club or a friends’ party. You never know when you might run into someone who can really move your practice along, and this will be especially true on October 20th. Just be careful of stretching yourself too far for someone, or expecting too much for your friends in the form of support.
You really want to reconnect now, especially after the focus on grinding at work and adjusting to so many shifts in your personal life.
The Venus trine Neptune transit on October 21stcan bring about a new and very fortuitous connection simply by sharing what your interests and passions are. You may be in a new place, either emotionally or physically, and need new connections in order to feel like yourself again. October 21stand 23rdwill be great days for feeling validated and accepted by the people around you, so remember that while you are also driven, ambitious, and strong, you are also funny, goofy, and such a sweet source of support for others. Lean into the softer side now.
The New Moon on October 27thcan bring about some real change in your social scene as well as your own vision for how your work fits into the larger human community around you. You are not just working on projects in the solitary confinement of your office, your work has real world implications for those around you, and this will feel especially present on this New Moon.
Endeavor to recreate your own image in alignment with how you would like to give your energy back to those you love and support. How can you better align yourself with that sweet and soft Capricorn while you move through the important work you’re accomplishing now?
Finally, we end the month with Halloween, the time when Mercury goes retrograde in Scorpio, and all the ghosts of parties past come out! Haha just kidding. Slightly. Brace yourself as the Mercury retrograde will be happening in your 11thhouse of social connection and networking—you may have to face some of your fears around feeling welcome and like you belong when out and about on Halloween night. Make sure you go out with a friend or someone you trust, and mediate any social anxiety with a costume that is playful and fun.
