WHAT do you need this month? As the sun is now influenced by the sign of Libra, which is symbolised by the scales, now is the time to balance your needs with the needs of others.
It is easy to lose track of what is important to you, and now is the time to consider what you most need to give to yourself each day. You may consider putting yourself first a little selfish, but in fact this is the most selfless act you can achieve. For when you consider first what you need, and how you can support yourself, you are then more available to give others what they need.
Libra is an air sign, which means that you may want to communicate more honestly about what you need to those close to you. This is an important part of meeting your own needs, as unmet needs within a relationship can be the greatest cause of dissatisfaction.
When you expect something from another, but do not communicate this need, you may feel let down. The best way to remedy this is to state your needs as much as you can, so that your relationships become more transparent. Trust will therefore be built more easily.
You know when someone is holding back from speaking honestly to you, so allow yourself to create stronger foundations in all your relationships by speaking from your heart.
On October 7, the full moon will move into the fiery sign of Aries. This is the first astrological sign of the zodiac and is encouraging you further to put your needs first, create more awareness of yourself, and improve your self confidence. The new moon in Scorpio on October 23 will help you further to recognise your own truth.
For most of October, Mercury, the planet of communication, is retrograde (moving backwards) which will give you the chance to re-evaluate projects, ideas and situations so that you may move forward at the end of the month with the best plan of action for you.
The 10th card in the Major Arcana Tarot deck is the Wheel of Fortune. This card reminds you that life is a never-ending cycle of endings and new beginnings. Seize the opportunities which come to you this month. You may even take a leap of faith which involves changing your direction. It is worth being brave now and considering how you may be limiting yourself from fulfilling your potential.
The influences of this month will help you to recognise how you can free yourself from fears, and embrace the changes you need to make to move forward in all areas of your life. At the beginning of each day ask yourself what you need most. This is a great gift to give to yourself, so make a commitment this month to listen to what you need, take action to bring this to fruition and watch as you quickly fulfil all of your needs and desires.
