Expect emotions to be running high as October begins and the Full Moon takes place in the sign of Aries on 5 October. Full Moons are when matters come to a head and pose an opportunity to let things go. This is especially true this month as it clashes with the detox planet, Pluto. Take this chance to let go of anything that no longer serves you, whether that is a fear, an argument, an unhealthy habit, a toxic relationship or even clutter in your home.
The Full Moon then gives way to the New Moon, which will take place in the sign of Libra on 19 October – a time to set our intentions and make our wishes. Because this is 2017’s only New Moon in the relationship-orientated sign of Libra, this is the optimum time to focus on your most important relationships, personal or professional. Better yet, make it an official intention. Write down your wish on the day of the New Moon, along with the action you're willing to take to make it happen. Believe that your relationship will improve and just see what occurs.
The other major news of the month is that Jupiter, the planet of good luck, is going to be moving into the sign of Scorpio – which is good news for everyone!
24 Sep to 23 Oct
The lucky planet Jupiter is leaving your sign, but there’s no need to panic. It has been in your sign for a year so hopefully you have realised how confidence makes life flow more smoothly. Remember that, practise more self-love and keep believing in yourself. Jupiter’s good luck will now move to the part of your chart that is all about cash, property and possessions, so expect good things in those departments in the year ahead.

As a result, you should now start to enjoy your days more than you have done for a long time – so plan some fun things to do!

You will also feel your creative juices flowing more than ever in October.

24 Aug to 23 Sep
You have one of the greatest heavenly blessings happening in your chart right now. The planet of positivity, Jupiter, is moving into your Mind Zone, meaning it's going to be a lot easier for you think positively over the coming weeks and months. This is a good thing for anyone, but since Virgos tend to focus on problems rather than solutions, it really is fantastic for you. Think about what you want, rather than what you don’t, and your life will change for the better.
Power date: 17 October – be bold and go for what you want
