Leo Monthly Horoscope: October 2015Unexpected good news can spin you around and start your month off with a boost as Mercury opposes benevolent Jupiter and eye-opening Uranus on October 1–2. All in all, though, this is a rather somber time. Brainy Mercury enters reflective Libra and your 3rd House of Communication on October 3, joining serious Saturn there on October 8. Measure your words carefully and say exactly what you mean. Additionally, the objective Libra New Moon on October 7 falls in your data-rich 3rd House, presenting you with opposing viewpoints. It’s tempting to favor one perspective over the other, yet the lesson of the Scales is to seek balance by giving each side equal consideration. Saturn’s weight of responsibility may leave you feeling oppressed, but you can’t just walk away from a tough situation. Your passions run rampant with both magnetic Venus and forceful Mars in profound Scorpio, tracking together through your 4th House of Home and Family.
Your attachment to the past is unsettling yet hard to release, for Venus turns retrograde on October 8, holding an awkward sesquisquare to rebellious Uranus throughout the first half of the month. You feel conflicted as you are attracted to the idea of breaking free while also taking solace from nostalgic memories. Mercury’s entry into Scorpio and your 4th House on October 20, followed by the Sun on October 23, continues the retrospective theme. The spontaneous-spirited Aries Full Moon on October 22 falls in your 9th House of Adventure, which can temporarily snap you back into the present. Nevertheless, your vision of the future is blurred by a longterm connection between realistic Saturn and fantasy-driven Neptune that is exact on October 27.
Leo Key Dates October 2015
Someone may offer you a lucrative opportunity when communicator Mercury in your 2nd House of Money is aided by generous Jupiter on October 1. But it’s not what you expect—and you could learn the rest of the story on October 2 when radical Uranus enters the picture. Seductive Venus joins aggressive Mars on October 3, but your attempts to influence others will make the outcome more unpredictable than you can imagine.
Discuss your plans with others on October 16, when interactive Mercury aligns with the willful Sun in your 3rd House of Information. But you’re likely less interested in telling everyone what’s on your mind than you are in having a dialogue and seeing their points of view. An intuitive Mercury-Neptune trine on October 18 heightens your sensitivity and allows you to get to the true meaning of the message. Be sure to establish healthy boundaries, or you could become so enamored with someone else’s perspective that you lose your own.
Let caution be your watchword on October 19: The Sun’s trine to dreamy Neptune and healing Chiron in your 7th House of Partners makes it so easy to see a situation through other people’s eyes, you have trouble negotiating for what you want. Action-hero Mars trines magnanimous Jupiter in your 8th House of Shared Resources on October 20, further encouraging you to give too much away. Being generous is one thing, but going overboard with lavish offers isn’t helpful to you in the long run.
You’re discouraged and disappointed in others when somber Saturn forms an uneasy connection with ethereal Neptune on October 27, making it hard to know what’s real. Fortunately, you can shake the malaise when spunky Mars enters inspirational Sagittarius and your 5th House of Play on October 28.
