Pisces Monthly Horoscope: October 2015Last month’s relationship theme intensifies as you dig more deeply into the nature of your partnerships and, hopefully, arrive at a clearer picture of where you want to go next. The New Moon in ambiguous Libra on October 7 falls in your 8th House of Intimacy, stretching the boundaries of a current union or challenging you to reexamine your beliefs about uniting with another person. Your sign is about total fusion—as if losing your identity is the only meaningful way to connect. Yet limiting Saturn’s conjunction to the New Moon reminds you that stronger boundaries make for better alliances. If a person is keeping you at arm’s length, don’t try to force him or her to let you in. This is a hint to move from co-dependence to interdependence, each of you functioning as well alone as you do together.
Venus, the planet of attraction, turns retrograde in your 9th House of Higher Truth on October 8 and will continue backtracking until November 18. Memories of past loves may surface that cause you to reconsider your current situation. Don’t wallow in regret, but do use what you uncover and stir passion for your next great adventure. On October 22, the Full Moon in pioneering Aries fires your 2nd House of Resources with bold initiative that can increase your income and sense of self-worth. Restrictive Saturn could put the brakes on dreams with a tough sesquisquare to dreamy Neptune on October 27 in a series that returns next year. The purpose is not to put an end to your hopes but to weed out what’s unrealistic while committing to make the rest come true.
Pisces Key Dates October 2015
Discussions are heavy on October 8, when normally chatty Mercury conjuncts severe Saturn. Their union in your 8th House of Deep Sharing stirs mistrust or breeds frustration unless you express yourself clearly. This isn’t about an ultimatum; it’s a way to create a solid starting point for a continuing conversation. Staying on track, though, is tough with a wobbly Mercury-Neptune sesquisquare on October 9. The awkward angle produces slips of the tongue and miscommunication. Yet if Saturn stabilizes Mercury with realism and facts, Neptune’s flights of fancy will have a safe place to land.
A poetic Mercury-Neptune trine on October 18 sparks sweet words and vivid fantasies. Nevertheless, keep a check on your enthusiasm; with an overly optimistic Sun-Jupiter aspect, you’re tempted to take a good idea and run too far with it. Protective angels arrive with a Sun-Neptune trine on October 19. Renewed faith connects your body and spirit in a journey of hope and healing.
Your watchwords are patience and planning as relentless Mars in your 9th House of Adventure is slowed by a semisquare from sluggish Saturn on October 21. Frustration can lead to foolishness when the warrior planet squares Neptune on October 22. It’s easy to get lost chasing illusions or fighting for lost causes. Protect yourself and keep some energy and money in reserve so you don’t come up emptyhanded. The Sun’s entry into shrewd Scorpio on October 23 sharpens your instincts and improves your survival skills.
Enterprising Mars fires into adventurous Sagittarius to set off a charge in your 10th House of Career. Tackling responsibilities for which you aren’t fully prepared could be risky. Yet if you can do it with a sense of joy and a willingness to learn, it’s well worth the effort.
