The great news is that Mercury prepares to go into forwards motion, after three long and sometimes chaotic weeks of rewinding. Tension was also increased when it squared with Pluto at the back end of last month.
However, the big planetary player today is probably Saturn. Why? Well the enourmous influence it brings to bear can be very good around anything which requires precision, attention to detail and expressing knowledge or ideas clearly, but with it still clashing with Venus, any relationship issues, may now bubble to the surface. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Thursday 8th October 2015 please read below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
As Venus enters Virgo, liaising with others regarding everyday tasks becomes easier, especially if you're working as part of a team. The only downside may be a tendency to be too critical of yourself. Resist this and you can do better. Indeed, keep up the hard work to achieve your goals but don't overburden yourself.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
Compromise and insight can help you deal with people whose opinions may be quite different from your own. A focus on the sign of Libra can be a reminder to see both sides of the argument. On another note, a little ingenuity can see you escaping from a difficulty and learning from it too, setting you up for better times ahead.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
A lot of energy may be directed into home and family affairs, which could lead to a makeover, thoughts of working from home or perhaps the idea to purchase a much-needed item. Even so, Mars in Virgo hints there could be conflicts brewing, unless you can get everyone's full agreement on what you're hoping to achieve, Gemini.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
As Venus glides into your communication sector, this could encourage you to seek advice. There may be a lot at stake right now, particularly as a Jupiter Pluto link hints at a project that demands a great deal but with no guarantee of success. Even so, the idea of breaking through previous limits and aiming high can appeal.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
An awkward alignment between Venus and Saturn can see you doubting the wisdom of a friendship or friendly meeting. Indeed, conversation may be trying, leading you to believe that the relationship is not as upbeat as you thought. It may be worth persevering mind, as given time you may find you'll get along just fine.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Today's alignment can encourage you to take a fresh look at your image with a view to making a few key changes. As Venus sashays into your sign the thought of purchasing new clothes or getting your hair done as a way to reinvent yourself could leave you feeling upbeat. It might also help you impress a certain person, Virgo.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Your relationship with yourself can come under greater scrutiny from now, particularly if you're unhappy with certain strands. Perhaps you're blaming yourself for anything that might have gone wrong. However, the more productive approach might be to console yourself that you can't control everything and shouldn't even try.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
If your personal finances could use a little tweaking, now is a good time to begin as Saturn encourages you to be thrifty in your spending. Bearing this in mind it might be an idea to review income and outgoings and fine-tune your budget. Furthermore, why not consider ways that you can capitalize on a talent that's lain dormant?
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
It's important to have a down-to-earth approach to achieving ambitions and to maintaining a steady flow of income. With the present Jupiter Pluto Trine encouraging you to aspire to bigger things, be sure you have enough in the way of resources to do so. This doesn't only imply money, but skills and also experience.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
Are you feeling more contemplative than usual? If so it may be due to the presence of Saturn resonating in your spiritual sector, and encouraging you to dig deep and resolve issues that may have been quietly bugging you for some time. Doing so can leave you feeling more energized, at peace with the world and freer of anxieties.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
If you've been delayed by too much red tape or experienced a general lack of progress, things might soon start to revive. The information or confirmation you need may soon show up giving you the go ahead. Still, it will help to keep an eye on financial matters just for now, as Neptune and Mars continue to blur the lines of reality.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Current influences can goad you into spending more but may urge you to earn more too. With Mercury about to push ahead once again, any financial hiccups you've experienced should hopefully be resolving themselves. Despite this if approached about any kind of dubious scheme, defer until you have hard and fast facts.
