Life will perk along this month, although you’ll need to take care not to overdo it at times. With the Sun, Mercury, and Venus in your solar twelfth house part of the month, you’ll still be prone to a cold or flu, so continue to be good to yourself. Get plenty of sleep and fuel your body with healthy foods. If something has to give, let that be your social life because you’ll need all your energy for a busy month at work. Plan a celebration for the 26th. That’s the date of the Moon in your sign, the symbolic beginning of your new solar year. Your Moon is favorably aligned with Pluto in Capricorn, your solar third house of communication, and lucky Jupiter in Taurus, your solar seventh house of relationships. People will be a central focus of your life this month and for much of the year ahead, and you’ll be in the center of the communication loop. Venus enters your sign on the 9th, followed by Mercury on the 13th. This dual influence is another plus for relationships, and you’ll almost magically attract people into your orbit. You’ll also be in an unusually talkative mood, interested in conversations that range from lighthearted to stimulating, as well as those that encourage deep thought. People have a lot to share with you this month. Your work life will be hectic at times, between energetic Mars in Leo, your solar tenth house of career, and the October 12 Moon in Aries, your solar sixth house of daily work. Planning and organization will help you keep up, and you should take advantage of every opportunity to showcase your skills, talents, and leadership ability.
