Your Horoscope in October 2017


By Maeri Frances

The force is with us as October is ushered in with a powerhouse trine between Mars and Pluto. When the god of war teams up with the god of the underworld we can expect some firm action. This is especially strong around the 2nd of October. Virgo and Capricorn will feel empowered and ready to fight for their beliefs. Venus joins in on the 3rd with a peaceful trine to Pluto, indicating a good outcome and more cooperation. When Jupiter enters Scorpio on the 10th we can expect a change of mood. Water signs especially will be able to enjoy the coming year, so be ready!

P.S. Don’t forget, your rising sign plays a big role, so check that out as well if you know it.
