October 2020 Aries Career Horoscope

October gets off to a powerful start for your career. On October 1, the year’s only Aries full moon beams into your first house of self and personal initiatives. A project you’ve been working on since your last birthday could come together. If you’ve been wavering on making an important life decision during the pandemic, you could finally get a clear signal! That will get even easier on October 4, when powerhouse Pluto wakes up from a five-month nap, zooming through Capricorn and your career zone alongside lucky Jupiter and structured Saturn. Polish your resume and portfolio, reach out to your contact list. Opportunities that staled could pick up speed! 

Back up your most important data and strengthen your passwords in the first half of this month. On October 12, Mercury, the ruler of technology and communication will flip its script and turn retrograde (backward) until November 3, a time that could muck up your key relationships. Be extra patient with people before flying off the handle or assuming they had bad intentions. Be careful about signing contracts, especially where money is involved. Read all the fine print and be clear about fees, interest rates and hidden costs. With Mercury awry, you could easily miss that!  

Key Dates:

October 7: Mercury-Uranus opposition
You don’t have to go along with someone’s ideas about spending or investing money today. In fact, trusting your own instincts may prove the smartest move of all. (Note: You also don’t have to justify your decision.) This cosmic collision sends your mind into overdrive, but hold your tongue. In this case, the first thought probably isn’t the best thought. Just quietly follow your gut. Mercury and Uranus will face off on October 19 and November 17, when you’ll be tasked with navigating this erratic energy again.
