This week begins with the New Moon in Libra on the 6th, which can help build relationships or repair ones damaged by Mercury in retrograde. Therefore, the New Moon provides diplomatic energies, which makes this an excellent time to exchange apologies. On the same day that Pluto turns direct in Capricorn, you will feel compelled to begin changes in your life that you did not start during Pluto’s retrograde period from April to May.
Venus enters Sagittarius on the 7th, which motivates you to adventure, travel, or try something new. Even though it is work-related, you might not want to focus on the mundane right now.
On the 8th, the Sun in Libra will conjunct Mars, which can cause you to act in a way that helps to bring peace and harmony. For example, a gesture of apologizing for any wrong you have done can also be motivated by that.
Mercury conjuncts Mars on the 9th, which can cause you to feel torn between talking and acting. Mars’ power diminishes in Libra because of its detriment, which is also a struggle.
On October 10th, Saturn will go direct in Aquarius, giving you a sense that you are making progress with your job and responsibilities. So how does your sign fare this week?
Aries – A challenge awaits you in which you may want to follow your heart, but you may not want to carry your head. Maybe you want to change an aspect of your work or even change jobs.

Pisces – Focus on your spiritual side this week to stay centered. Think about your values to determine what’s most important to you.
