Feb 19 - Mar 20
Today's Horoscope This week This month
Pisces horoscope for October 2023
While there is a lot of focus on both sides of the financial fence this month and especially in the first three weeks, this is something that has been on the boil for some time and with the lunar node in your two money houses until January 2025, that will remain the case. However, what you have this month is both sides of the financial fence rising to a peak at the same time and while there will be times when they clash, with a balanced approach to money coming in and money going out you can enjoy the benefits of both.
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your financial sector but with the dwarf planet Ceres having left a week before he returned and with Mars here until 12th October, you already had a sense of what you are fighting for. Mars will still be fuelling your financial passions and fighting spirit when Mercury returns on 5th October with the smart head for money that will help you get your head in the game and to think on your feet. However, the month not only begins the Moon in your income sector but wrapping up a Full Moon two days earlier. Before leaving the Moon will align with the North Node and the dwarf planet Eris, the warrior princess of the cosmos, who will spend the whole month aligned here.
With Mars, the warrior planet of the cosmos on the other side of the sky in your financial sector this might become heated, but what might feel like financial tension is just both sides of the financial fence becoming fired up. Things will ease back on both fronts and on 12th October Mars will leave and return to an adventurous part of your chart, where he will be more focused on fuelling a passion for adventure. With Mercury following him on 22nd October and the Sun a day later, this is the start of a new trend. Meanwhile, Venus is also on the move and after four months in your work sector and after creating the momentum that you can continue to benefit from, on 9th October she will turn her attention onto your relationships.
Love & RomanceWith Mars having already passed through your relationship sector, the Sun having left on the September equinox, as it always does and Mercury leaving on 5th September, the fact that this will end all planetary activity on the relationship front is what you would expect at this time of year. Except that what you see is not what you get, with the relationship gods simply catching their breath for a few days before a second and much more significant wave of activity begins. Mars has already left you with a sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you and the Sun has left you more aware and with things more transparent.
Until he leaves your relationship sector Mercury will be doing what as the planet of communication he does best, but also what he has been doing since he returned in July for what is normally a 14 to 15 day visit. A retrograde phase has kept Mercury here for over two months, something that your relationships will continue to benefit from. Mercury's departure on 5th October will leave your relationship sector empty but by the time the Moon returns from 11th October to 13th October, everything will have changed. Held back by her own retrograde phase Venus, the planet of love will finally return to your relationship sector on 9th October to find that the hard work has already been done.
Venus' return is a chance to focus more on what you want from your relationships while having a better chance of turning those desires into reality. However, this will get an additional boost when the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment and especially commitment to your relationships not only returns for her first visit in four years on 16th October but a visit that won't end until August 2024. Venus is here until 8th November, with plenty of time for her and Juno to work as a team as they take your relationships into the next phase. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity in your romantic sector, the Moon's visit from 6th October to 8th October will give the spirit of romance a boost.
Business & CareerFor the fourth time in as many months but also for the last time this year, the month begins with Venus in your work sector, something that shouldn't be possible for a planet that will usually spend just 24 days here each year. However, now in her final days here Venus is not only bringing all planetary activity on the job front for the year to a close but a journey that began with Mars' return in May. Before Mars returned there had been no planetary activity on the job front this year, with his first visit in two years able to kick start things by injecting his drive, warrior and competitive spirit into getting things moving.
It was just a few weeks later that in early June Venus returned to begin what should have been a 24 day mission to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. Instead, a six week retrograde phase kept Venus here after Mars left, after the Sun and Mercury moved through and right through the middle months of the year. However, Venus' longest visit in our lifetime will end when she leaves on 9th October while the asteroid Juno, the queen of commitment's departure on 18th October will finally end all planetary activity on the job front, bringing to an end what Mars had begun five months earlier.
This will end an incredible run that you will continue to benefit from for the rest of the year and beyond but they aren't gone yet. Venus and Juno not only start the month aligned but having just been given a boost thanks to a friendly aspect to a Full Moon in your income sector at the end of last month. Venus will be working until the end to make her final days count, with the Moon's return from 8th October to 10th October ensuring you are emotionally and intuitively engaged when she leaves on 9th October. Meanwhile, the Moon's return to your career sector on 18th October, the same day the Juno leaves your work sector will be a chance to tie up loose ends and with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled, look at where to from here.
MoneyBecause the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of October in your financial sector, the solar spotlight is always on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year. By this point in the year both planets in your income sector will be in retrograde motion, making this a less active point in the year on the income side of the financial fence but with the doors open to the past, second chances and untapped income potential. The difference this year is that you have the lunar nodes in your two money houses and Mars making his first visit to your financial sector in two years.
For the first time in 17 years, the North Node is in your income sector and as its focus is always on the future, while the doors are open to untapped income potential they are also open to new potential. This is something that a Full Moon here at the end of last month, which only runs its course on 1st October will have acted as a trigger for. As well as a chance to start the month with a sharp nose for money from the start falling during Venus, planet of money's final days in your work sector this could have ongoing implications. The full scope of what this has triggered won't fully manifest until the Moon comes full circle from 26th October to 28th October.
Meanwhile, until leaving your financial sector on 12th October, Mars is firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit as he gives you the drive to take your financial power back. You will have a better sense of where to channel this when Mercury's return from 5th October to 22nd October will give you the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game and to think on your feet. Mars will be gone by the time the Moon moves through from 13th October to 16th October, but an eclipsing New Moon on 15th October will have plenty to act as a trigger for by then. While the South Node will stay on in your financial sector, by 24th October the Sun will be gone and there will be a chance to catch your breath before Venus, the planet of money returns early next month.
