Mars in Leo, your solar third house, requires caution for two reasons. The first is you’ll be impatient with people, especially when they don’t quickly grasp your comments and ideas. Rethink that approach. It’s possible you didn’t explain things well enough since your mind operates at lightning speed. The second applies when you’re behind the wheel. Slow down. You don’t need a traffic ticket. Several planets join Saturn in Libra, your solar fifth house, for part of the month. That’s a plus for hobbies, time with your children, sporting events, and workouts at the gym. Also set aside a few hours to review your investments or retirement account with an eye toward the best choices for long-term gain and funding your children’s college educations. Friendships are all you could wish for under the October 12 Moon in Aries, your solar eleventh house. Make plans to socialize with a group of pals, and also for quality time with your best friends. You’ll find it easy to meet new people now and conversation will flow. You might even reconnect with someone from the past around the 12th. If the person is a former romantic interest, however, remember all the reasons you’re no longer together. The Moon in Scorpio, your solar sixth house, on the 26th, steps up the pace at work. The good news is past performance could earn you a raise or a reward for high productivity in the first part of November. However, it may take a while to get the information you need, so start early rather than wait until the last minute. Business travel is possible at month’s end.
