The horizon is wide, Aquarius, but a new frontier is also coming into view. For the past 13 months, you've been exploring new possibilities as risk-taker Jupiter soared through Libra and your ninth house of expansion. This domain also rules publishing, travel, study and entrepreneurship. You've been learning so much, opening yourself up to options you hadn't previously considered.
On October 10, Jupiter will move into Scorpio and your tenth house of career and long-term plans, where it will stay until November 8, 2018. With the planet of luck and abundance in this structured zone, one of those starry-eyed visions could morph into a real-deal paying gig, and you could have your most prosperous professional cycle in more than a decade.
If you've got any kind of #boss goals, you could soon realize them, as the tenth house rules corporations, hierarchies and authority. A leadership or executive title might be yours for the taking. Even if you don't fancy yourself the power-suit type, you may receive an opportunity too good to pass up. With worldly Jupiter at the helm, this job could involve travel or a possible relocation. Consider the options before passing on them! After a nomadic year, you might feel ready to sign on with an established company that offers you benefits and a legit title. This Jupiter cycle often brings a promotion, pay raise and new responsibilities.
But with free-agent Jupiter here, you might decide to become the CEO of Aquarius, Inc., and get serious about building your own platform. Your work could be publicly recognized with awards and media attention in the coming 13 months. Some Aquarians may gain clout as esteemed experts in their fields. Tap coaches and mentors to guide you through the process, and dive into personal growth seminars or certification courses. Check out Brendon Burchard, creator of The Experts Academy and a motivational-speaking trainer. With inspirational Jupiter here, you could become the accidental spokesperson for a topic or brand that you feel passionate about.

The tenth house rules men and fathers, and thanks to philosophical Jupiter, your relationship with an important male could evolve this year. If you've got lingering "daddy issues" (and who doesn't?), you may grow into a healthier relationship or understanding with your dad or a father figure. Jupiter only visits this part of your chart every 12 years, and its last visit was from October 2005 to November 2006. Look back to see if there were any similar themes then, such as a career change, new responsibilities or a prominent man entering your life.
While you take a minute to integrate this new, professional Jupiter energy, you can still enjoy some freewheeling vibes. Jupiter might be exiting Libra on the October 10, but the Sun is here until October 23, easing the transition. The Libra new moon on October 19 could spark a visionary idea that unfolds over the coming six months. This is an ideal date to start booking your winter travel. With such a work-driven year ahead now, you'll want to have an exciting trip to look forward to, Aquarius! Energizer Mars will also visit Libra from October 22 to December 9, so there could still be some exciting (but potentially nerve-racking) trips or learning experiences ahead this year. It's stressful because you may be so busy at work that all this extracurricular stuff could make it hard to finish your duties before the holiday season gets into full swing.
Got something to say? On October 5, the Aries full moon beams into your third house of communication and local action. Long-awaited news could arrive—and given the forthcoming Jupiter cycle, it could be a call from a recruiter or the green light for a project you've been developing for the past six months. This full moon is perfect to gather with friends and regroup. Round up the crew for casual drinks at your favorite watering hole and block out a few hours so people can drop in to say hi. If you're pitching, interviewing or sending out an email blast, this is a great day to get your message out to the masses.
The new Jupiter-in-Scorpio cycle will really kick in on October 23, when the Sun joins the gregarious gas giant here for its annual Tour de Scorpio. Your luckiest day of the year, especially for your big goals, arrives on October 26, when the Sun and Jupiter make their annual conjunction (meetup). If there was ever a time to go big and sell yourself, this is it. A leap of faith is in order, Water Bearer, and it could be a major one that reshapes your entire life path. But it's time, isn't it? Gather some offers and explore. You can always decide that you're not interested and stick to your same-old status quo. But give yourself the option to say yes or no!
