Astrological Business Forecast for October 2023

Here is your October 2023 Astrological Forecast from JoAnn Stoneberg with As The Planets Turn:

  • Oct 4 - Mercury, the planet of communication, goes into Libra, the social sign. This helps soften communication a bit and could potentially be a challenge emotionally. This could also be a day to look out for miscommunication and misunderstandings.

  • Oct 8 - Venus, the planet of love, goes into Virgo. This can bring in some self-criticism and insecurity. This is a great time to get your ducks in a row and be aware of any emerging imposter syndrome that may creep in.

  • Oct 10 - Pluto, the planet of emotional transformation, goes direct. With some planets still retrograde and others going direct, it can feel like you want to move forward but tend to be held back in a way. October, November, and December are our prepping phase. Now is the time to put in the work so you are ready to launch and move forward at the start of the new year.

  • Oct 11 - Mars, the planet of action, goes into Scorpio. This gives us more of an instinctual nature to just go for it! Now is the time to step into your sense of self and stability.

  • Oct 14 - New moon and solar eclipse in the sign of Libra bring us the energy of social graces and relationships. Some questions to ask yourself at this time are: How do you want to perceive yourself moving forward? Are we being too dependent on others for our business? Are we doing our own work? How are we collaborating with others? What is it that we need to receive to move forward with our businesses and with ourselves? What do I need to clear to allow new things to move in?

  • Oct 22 - Mercury goes into Scorpio, which means we need to watch our words and think before we speak to avoid blunt conversations. This is also a time to analyze all the details of any contracts you may be signing so you know exactly what you may be committing to.

  • Oct 23 - Sun goes into Scorpio. This is a time to look at our fears and vulnerabilities, tap into our own resources, and ask for help from others when needed.

  • Oct. 28 - Full moon and lunar eclipse in Taurus. You may notice that 3 to 4 days before the full moon, there is a build-up of energy. We might feel like withdrawing and staying stuck where we are at this time. This is a time to let go of old habits and behaviors and allow new habits and behaviors to move in. Ask yourself: How do I need to change how I’m thinking and behaving so I can better myself to move forward?

  • Oct. 31 - On Halloween, we have a sun and Mars conjunction in Scorpio. This is a sharp explosive energy to watch out for with our words, thoughts, and actions.

Watch the full episode here:

To wrap it up, the beginning of the month is going to be a little rocky, our perceptions may be a little disillusioned and we need to be careful of our conversations with others.

Towards the end of the month, it’s time to come back to understanding your own self-worth and value and what you bring to the table for others.

Remember these next few months are a time to keep working and putting in the hours. This is a time to build your life and your business behind the scenes so you are ready to bring your offerings into the world once the opening energies of January and February are upon us.
