Life gets back on track for the most part this month, with few hot- spots. Do be careful to safeguard financial information and other valuables when in public, and also curb your generosity with friends and organizations; you’ll have a tendency to go overboard. Do what you can afford, remembering to take care of you and yours first. You’re at your best and most charming, able to put anyone at ease as the Sun, Mercury, and Venus transit your sign part of the month. Venus also gives you maximum powers of attraction, especially on the 7th, when it aligns with Neptune in Aquarius. Fill your mind with positive thoughts and step into each day with optimism, knowing the future is bright. All your relationships, especially those that are closest, benefit from the October 12 Moon in Aries, your solar seventh house. You may choose to distance yourself from some people at this time because they no longer complement your life. It’s also possible you’ll encounter someone from the past who previously undermined your self-confidence. Remember the reasons you left this person behind and continue to move forward. Your bank account could get a nice boost this month or next, thanks to the October 26 Moon in Scorpio, your solar second house. Fortunate planetary alignments also increase the odds of finding bargains, especially on clothing and domestic items. Spending, however, can quickly escalate if you’re not careful. Keep your budget in mind when shopping and socializing.
