It’s also a good time for partnering, counseling, connecting, and self-expression through your relationships. Personal energy levels may not be at their best during this cycle, but if you put more energy into listening to others and attending to your relationships, you will coast along just fine. Today’s Moon reminds you of your goals and ambitions or progress. Your sense of responsibility pleases you and makes you feel proud of yourself.
TaurusWith the Sun’s move into your solar sixth house today, dear Taurus, you can enjoy renewed energy and motivation for work and routines in the month ahead. While it may not be an ideal time for recognition or worldly success, it’s an excellent transit for self-development and laying the groundwork for future success. Until October 23rd, you might work on greater self-awareness, improvement of self-care and health programs, and dealing with detail work. During this cycle, your focus is mainly on correcting details and solving problems. You might organize your life in helpful ways. You’ll likely enjoy renewed interest, energy, and motivation for work and routines. Still, the Moon spends the day in your adventure and spirit sector, and it’s wise to pay some attention to your needs for new experiences or horizons to explore on a mental level.
GeminiYou put a rather introspective solar cycle behind you today, dear Gemini, and begin a month-long transit for letting loose the more playful, creative side of your nature. This new Sun transit is fortunate–it reminds you to reconnect with the “child within.” The focus shifts to more creative and entertaining pastimes, romance, sport, or leisure. Until October 23rd, you can feel freer and happier and more confident or outgoing. There is unique flair to whatever you do, and your emotional life is especially colorful. Good energy is with you for romantic appeal and the pursuit of your heart’s desire. During this self-expressive period, you thrive on others’ feedback and good vibes, and you are more openly affectionate and playful.
CancerThe Sun moves into your home and family sector early today, dear Cancer, and you’ll want to carve out some downtime for yourself in this yearly, month-long cycle. This Sun transit helps you relax the pace and improve your concentration. It’s a favorable time to reconnect with your roots, build your inner well, and take charge of your family life. You’re focusing on long-term security! It can be a time to begin a new, far-reaching project. Still, building up inner strength and nurturing the self and loved ones are the larger focus until October 23rd. It’s a good time to take more pride in your home and to improve living conditions and family relations. Worldly ambitions tend to take a backseat now.

You’re interested in quick results, putting out your feelers for new ideas, or you have many different projects going at once in the month ahead. You are curious, interested in others, and eager to learn new things. While this is a busy time for making connections, maintaining continuity can require extra effort during this phase.

ScorpioThe Sun moves into your privacy and soul sector early today, dear Scorpio, for a month-long visit. This cycle increases your needs for rest, time to yourself, and replenishment.

It can be a time of increased recognition and, possibly, greater responsibility as well! Your instincts for advancement are excellent in the weeks ahead, and others notice you for what you do or how you perform. You’re certainly more accountable than usual. Today’s Moon, on the other hand, is in your sign, highlighting your personal needs and wants. Your emotional world takes on more significance.
AquariusThe Sun moves into your sector of spirit and adventure today, dear Aquarius, and will transit this area of your solar chart until October 23rd. In the month ahead, the more adventurous and exploratory side of your personality comes to the fore. It’s time for a change of scenery or mental refreshment. This period favors nurturing your spirit to grow, expand, learn, and understand. It’s an excellent time for picking up or advancing personal interests or studies. You can see beyond the usual boundaries and limits in your life. With today’s Moon, the need for an escape from the usual is reinforced further. However, you may not feel especially sociable at this time of the lunar month. It’s a good time for some introspection.
PiscesThe Sun changes signs today, dear Pisces, and in the month ahead, you’re taking life–and your deeper needs from it–more seriously. Your private world assumes more importance, and you pay special attention to the hidden layers of circumstances and people around you. This cycle holds great potential for healing, observing, and strategizing. It can be an excellent month for focus, concentration, and a stronger feeling of mission, passion, or purpose. Situations, people, and activities that help you grow and transform are a big draw. During this cycle, you might become thoroughly engrossed in a personal project or relationship.
