October 2017 Monthly Horoscope for Pisces
The month of October awaits you, gentle Pisces! With Jupiter in your eighth house of transformation and regeneration from last year to the 10th of this month, you will see serious changes throughout the year. You have done a lot of deep, soulful work to connect with your highest self and intuition. Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, will ensure that you are in good hands while you break down what no longer serves you to build yourself anew. While the eighth house rules death, this can mean the death of the ego or the end of something in your life. Also, look around your home, and find what no longer works for you in this space. Are there physical objects you need to let go of? This can be a scary time for you, dear Pisces, as you can be prone to fear and uncertainty. Don't be scared, because this transformation will benefit your highest self in a spiritual way! Flow like the fish you are and swim in these unchartered waters. Greatness is yet to come!
When Jupiter transitions into your ninth house on the 11th of October, it will remain here until next November of 2018. The ninth house governs the expansion of ideas, philosophies, cultures, religions, and all things worldly. You may have the sudden urge to travel, craving freedom and expression. You may have the desire to go back to school, learn something new, delve into spiritual text, or go to an unfamiliar place. You may also receive psychic visions during this time, as you are deeply connected to your spiritual plane. This may result in a change in career paths as well, although this month will not be focused on finances or professional life very much. Jupiter will ensure that you get the most out of this experience. Your judgment and intuition will be strong here, so trust thyself!
With Neptune in retrograde in your sign since June, remaining in this direction until November of this year, you may be feeling extra sensitive and emotional. You may need to take this time to get in touch with your deepest feelings and desires, especially during the month of October. Neptune is your ruler, so you will feel extra connected to this planet during this retrograde. Pay attention to the subtleties of your emotions. You will need to protect yourself against negative psychic and physical energy now. Stay away from people and places that drain your energy, and instead focus on what makes you comfortable and fulfilled! When Uranus squares Neptune on the 7th of October, it is important that you avoid any substances, such as drugs or alcohol, as these effects will be exacerbated by the planetary alignment. This is an especially important time to meditate and be in nature. This week is a perfect opportunity to set up a "zen den"! This space will fill you with positivity and calmness. You will need it now, spiritual Pisces!
When Venus enters Libra on the 14th of October, the harmonious balance of love and connection awaits you! You will feel more whimsical than ever today and may be inclined to engage in light-hearted play with friends, family, and loved ones. Today is the perfect time to do something fun and impractical. Be spontaneous and allow your imagination to take over! You will need this alignment to balance out the intensity and seriousness of the other planets this month. Remember that life doesn't always have to be serious. The simple enjoyment of being will fill your being with happiness!
When Mercury enters Scorpio on the 17th of this month, you will feel more inclined to speak your truth when communicating with those around you. Be mindful that this doesn't get you in trouble at work, though! When talking to coworkers, and especially supervisors, say only what is necessary, rather than the entirety of what you are feeling. In your relationships, you may feel the need to have an open conversation with your partner, friend, or relative. When communicating here, it is important to know exactly what your intention is. Otherwise, your partner may receive this in a negative manner. If you are feeling overly obsessive about your thoughts, write them down. You never know when something creative can come out of your analytical mind, dreamy Pisces!
The new moon on the 19th will be an especially challenging day for you. Because Jupiter will be in your eighth house until the 10th of this month, you spent an entire year letting go of old energies and replacing them with new ones. The new moon will symbolize one final push of releasing anything else that no longer serves you. Today, reflect on how much you have grown and transformed over the past year. Identify what else in your life you can consciously let go of. These may be thoughts or ideas instead of physical manifestations.
When Mars enters Libra on the 22nd, this is a particularly good day for love! If you are in a relationship, you and your partner may be inclined to spice things up in the bedroom. As a Pisces, you may feel especially connected to tantra, and this is a good time to introduce this prospect into your sex life. With Venus balancing out the aggressiveness of Mars, you and your partner are sure to connect in an intensely loving and passionate way. If you are a single Pisces, this surge of sexual energy can open you to new modalities of creativity. Tap into your artistic and musical side today, as you might surprise yourself with something truly unique and amazing!
Overall, the past year has been one of extreme internal growth for you. This path continues throughout the month of October. While you thrive doing deep work, enjoy the moments that aren't so serious, too. Have fun, let go, and trust in the Universe! You were equipped with the best flippers in the sea, so swim away to your heart's desire!
