When a serious discussion is required, sometimes you run away. So try to be there for your sweetheart today. If you can, listen and communicate without squirming! Right now you might not feel very focused on those little details.
You might be obsessed with "the big picture" instead. You could be planning how you are going to spend your retirement instead of dealing with today's phone calls and clients. Or you might be dreaming about your next career leap, imagining a big promotion, when right now you need to balance your checkbook!
Do your best to be a little bit practical.
There's some likelihood that a recent meeting with a person of influence has put a damper on your hopes for your projects. Will you abandon them and live with your regrets? Or will you choose to maintain your goals, despite advice to the contrary, and at the risk of encountering disapproval? This is the type of question that will certainly preoccupy you today.
Health wise, you're likely to be feeling alert, strong, and full of energy and stamina. As a result, your sense of adventure is high, and your mind may be exploring the possibility of an interesting vacation - river rafting, backpacking, hiking the Appalachian Trail or other adventures. This is a good idea, as this trend in your physical condition is likely to continue for a while.
Get some travel brochures and look into it! You may find yourself really feeling like the black sheep today.
Don't let this get you down. You've probably often felt this way before, even if not so much as now. This always makes a balance between work and play important at this time of year.
Mercury is the first planet to return to your busy work sector on 3rd October, followed by Venus six days later and the Sun three weeks later. This is the point in any year when the solar spotlight is always on matters of the heart and all things romantic, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of October in your romantic sector.
And where you find the Sun, Venus and Mercury, the planets that rule the heart and mind will never be too far away. Mercury will be the first to leave, leaving your romantic sector on 3rd October followed by Venus, the planet of love six days later. This should leave the Sun on his own and should also mean that by 24th October, with the Sun gone all focus on matters of the heart should be over for the year.
Instead, the planet that is making sure neither of those scenarios happen is Mars, with the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos returning for his first visit to your romantic sector in two years, on 4th October.
Mars will return while Venus, the planet of love is still here, so will find that his romantic passions and fighting spirit have a receptive audience from the get go. With Mars here until 19th November, the romantic flame will continue to burn all month. In the meantime, now in his second month in direct motion in your relationship sector and due to leave in early December, Jupiter is now becoming a more dominant force on the relationship front. With Venus, the planet of love returning early next month everything that you have been working for and towards all year is now starting to come together.
Fortunately the Moon is making two visits to your relationship sector this month, giving you two opportunities to check in. The first visit is from 3rd October to 5th October, returning to check in again on 30th October, where it will see out the month. A real corner has been turned, with the whole dynamics of this financial year having shifted last month. It is when there is planetary activity in your income and financial sectors at the same time, which you did in the middle months of the year, that there is pressure between the two and as a result, financial tension.
The last planet left your income sector in October, but the North Node has not only been keeping things on track, there has been just enough professional support.
All the planetary activity remains on the financial side of the fence, which means on what you do with the money you have. Yet where you have learnt from the past there is now a chance to put what you learnt into practice. With lucky Jupiter returning in early December, this is preparation for the financial growth ahead. Now I mentioned that the money gods have found a workaround for income matters, which will be revealed on 9th October.
