Your Focus is About to Shift
Saturn transiting into Scorpio on the 5th is by far the most important transit this month. It can prompt a dramatic shift in your focus during the next three years. As the taskmaster of the zodiac, Saturn will test your resolve or resources, while strengthening your foundation, confidence and determination in a certain area of your life (Check your astrology chart to see which house is ruled by Scorpio, which will be the area of your life affected by Saturn.). So think about what you’d like to accomplish between now and September 2015, and take some steps to make it happen!

Getting healthy together and enjoying an array of sensual delights can heighten romance during Venus in Virgo (October 3 – 27). Analyzing your relationships is favored as well. Venus enters loving Libra on the 28th (through November 20), which can sweeten one-on-one encounters and awaken your artistry.
Mars transits out of steamy Scorpio and into lighthearted Sagittarius on the 6th (through November 15), which may bring out your inner daredevil. It can also prompt you to explore a new locale, culture or philosophy.
Planets in Motion
Jupiter turns retrograde on the 4th (through January 30, 2013). This is an excellent time for self-discovery through spiritual and intellectual pursuits, as well as evaluating your personal integrity. It’s also a good time to finish your education. However, starting a business during retrograde Jupiter may result in most of your resources going toward altruistic projects that you won’t get paid for. On the upside, this influence supports philanthropic activities.
Continuing their retrograde travels are Neptune (through November 10) and Uranus (through December 12), which also promote activities that enhance your inner awareness, direction or purpose.
The New Moon in Libra on the 15th illuminates activities that involve relating, art, law, negotiating or equality. You may find yourself evaluating your attitudes and beliefs about love and commitment.
