You might gain new information about shared resources or debts and loans, or there can be a startling discovery about your feelings for someone or theirs for you. Epiphanies now encourage you to concentrate on managing your resources and energies more effectively.
You can experience a stronger desire for financial independence in October, or you're especially motivated to pursue a more substantial income or to take action on money-making ideas. Feel the increased courage to earn what you need and deserve. If you're feeling tense, a partner or friend's gentle touch or conversation can help you relax.
There can be breakthrough thinking, insight, and discussion this month, particularly around the 15th and Solving problems, finding patterns, and involving yourself in something absorbing and meaningful to you can figure strongly. You can experience a very pleasing sense that you're moving forward, which seems to open up your options. You can feel accomplished and hopeful in business and a stronger feeling of connectedness in your personal life.
There can be a sense that you're growing and heading in the right direction with family. Until October 23rd: The Sun continues to transit your solar second house. This is the most "financial" period of the year for you.
You might have a more materialistic view of life for the time being, or you have an increased interest in your own possessions, during this cycle. You are more attracted to objects and possessions that give you a sense of comfort, status, or luxury now. You probably should be on the lookout for a tendency to create your own financial stress due to extravagant spending habits.
At this point in the year, you are unlikely to take many risks, however, and you can be quite resistant to change. This is a time when "comfort zones" are more important to you than usual--you value the familiar. From October 23rd forward: The Sun is illuminating your communications sector now, suggesting "busy-ness" and movement. You are exploring and searching now, making connections, and paying attention to your immediate environment.
Social interaction is emphasized during this period, and is for the most part light-hearted. Give other people a little extra time and attention, notice their efforts on your behalf, and strengthen your connections. You are more curious and alert than usual, and you could be quite busy with errands, paperwork, phone calls, and light socializing. Much energy is expended in understanding and adapting to your immediate environment. Siblings, neighbors, close relatives, friends, and co-workers may play a more important role than usual in your life during this cycle.
You are more interested in exploring your own neighborhood than you are a different country. This is not a time of big adventure-seeking. Rather, it's a time of little adventures close to home. Neither is this a time when you are especially focused. In fact, you could have a finger in many pies right now. You are especially resourceful now, and you could find yourself enjoying or seeking attention for your intellectual know-how.
The ability to express and communicate your ideas is extremely important to you at this time. You are eager to investigate new things, whether scientific or technical. Until October 8th: Venus continues to grace your solar second house during this period.
You might receive gifts or bonuses now, or you find much comfort in what you already own and have. You may be a little extravagant with money for the time being, as your desire for luxury and comfort items is increased now, and this is something to watch for. When it comes to love, you value those who make you feel comfortable and secure. From October 8th forward: With Venus moving through your solar third house during this period, you are mostly cheerful in your approach to others, and perhaps somewhat intellectual, during this transit.
Essentially, you are quite companionable now. You enjoy talking about what interests you, and you find great value in the exchange of ideas. Sometimes this transit brings benefit through siblings, communications, or short trips. During this period, you are most attracted to wit, cheerfulness, and verbal rapport. You are especially good at mediating conflicts. Smoothing over differences using your diplomacy skills figures now. Until October 2nd: Mercury continues to transit your solar second house.
You might play with various ways to increase personal funds, resulting in more than one avenue for monetary gain. Avoid letting undue pressure from others push you into signing important papers that may create a serious financial commitment. Shopping when experiencing nervous tension should also be avoided. Your mind is always active with new ideas for an increase of income during this cycle. Brothers or sisters, or communications, may be a source of financial or material gain or loss now.
From October 3rd forward: Mercury is right at home in the third house and offers a natural curiosity, facility with words, and the ability to multi-task successfully. More time spent on the phone, writing emails, in the car making short frequent trips, chatting, running errands, communicating with neighbors and siblings, visiting friends and relatives, and doing paperwork is likely now.
There can also be a tendency to fuss over insignificant matters now, however. Also, "information overload" is also a possibility. This may be a busy time with neighbors, classmates, siblings, and community affairs. Your interests are especially varied now and perhaps scattered. It's an ideal time to pick up information from your environment and the people in it, as your tendency is toward a certain level of intellectual detachment just now.
Your mind is often distracted, particularly when circumstances call for you to stick to the routine, so this is not the best transit for focusing on one task or project.
Your mind is especially inquisitive during this cycle, when learning, short trips, and other forms of communication and making connections, appeal strongly. Some are fidgety or nervous during this cycle, perhaps due to increased errand-running, phone calls, and the like. Others enjoy the challenge of tackling a variety of subjects. As well, talking, writing, and studying can be good ways to handle stress.
Until October 3rd: Mars continues to activate your solar first house, supplying you with added energy to apply towards personal goals, and a more assertive and direct approach to the world in general. This is an excellent period for physical training and exercise of any kind. The desire to be self-sufficient and independent is especially strong now. You are far less tolerant of being restricted by or dependent on others, and this is a good time to identify your personal strengths and to take positive action to rectify situations that may have previously felt frustrating or repressive.
You might be especially attracted to personal challenges, and seeing just how far you can push. However, be careful not to push yourself and others too far. From October 4th onward: Mars energizes your solar second house. You have more energy at your disposal to make money, but also to defend your values.
This can be a very resourceful time, when you make the most of what you have. You have much energy for new money-making projects, or for stepping up existing ones. You may be over-identifying with what you have and own, and you could be trying to prove yourself your worth to others using money and possessions as the means to do so.
If conflicts occur during this transit, they are likely to be over issues of ownership. This is a time when impulse buying is at a peak. You probably should avoid using credit right now, simply because your spending habits may be excessive and impulsive.

If you let them get away with saying things about you that are not true it will encourage them to be even more reckless in the future. Hit back quick and hit back hard. Even Cancer has an off day now and again. Stay calm and think positively at all times, especially when dealing with domestic upheavals.
