Mechanics or anyone skilled at repairing machinery accept that to identify and fix an issue, something must sometimes be taken apart and made worse briefly to do so. There are times when what needs resolving can be concealed in a way similar to the Russian dolls that stack one within another. This month, you might believe that to address an urgent matter, you must find your way through something complexly chaotic. However, don't overlook the benefits of something being in a brief state of disarray. It's all part of a process that will, as you'll discover, fall neatly into place.
Are you familiar with the saying about being 'a Jack of all trades but master of none'? Sexism aside, this figure of speech refers to someone who dabbles in many skills, rather than gaining expertise by becoming skilled at one. Please allow me to make clear that the universe does not suggest you lack focus – far from it, actually. However, October will undoubtedly bring more than one development to push you to take a brave step due to you having a clearer idea of what you want – and don't want. During recent months, you may have felt confused or, in some way, rudderless. Expect during the coming weeks to feel much more inspired about what your new level of focus offers – and where it can take you.
You have a 'breaking point.' So too, does someone else. However, this month, as Mercury enters intense and mysterious territory, not only could your communication become deeper or protracted, it could also be noticeably more probing. This could be due to you being extra-determined to 'get to the bottom' of a matter or bring it into the open. There's also a point to which you can expect someone to be understanding or cooperative, so don't push them too hard. The key to making significant communicative progress this month involves summoning plenty of kindness and sensitivity. Don't believe you'll appear weak or lose control of a situation by doing so.
When you're in charge of something, there are probably few people who aren't reassured by this. It's also rare that you set out to achieve something for self-gratification. If you can make others' worlds a better, more comfortable, loving, or sunnier place at the same time, then you probably won't hesitate to do so. This month, you're right to pursue a plan that will make a significant difference to your world but are also right to identify how it can benefit others. That makes your objective much more worthwhile - and can boost its chances of success unquestionably!
This month, it might be a bit early to pinch yourself. Although you could have reasons to believe circumstances have shifted positively, convincing yourself that you're in a position to crack open champagne or bask in the warmth of success might be a bit premature. However, October offers insights in two wonderful ways. The first surrounds seeing an important vision or plan finally get underway. The second involves feeling reassured that what you've put in place not only holds the tremendous potential you believed it did but could, with more faith and persistence, exceed your expectations.
'All will be revealed in time.' When we hear such words, we can feel intrigued and frustrated. Something we're keen to establish in the present is at the mercy of someone deciding when, in the future, we can be privy to this information. However, this month, you're likely to have to summon patience to gain particular knowledge or insight. This might be frustrating due to you receiving a glimpse into what could be on offer or within your grasp. As a situation progresses, you will not only receive during the coming weeks the information you've waited patiently for but could also discover that what comes your way transforms a rigid opinion or attitude you had regarding it.
As grateful as a genie would be for being released from a lantern, nothing probably annoys him more than someone trying to be clever by asking for one hundred wishes when he offers to grant three. The wisher is told to narrow down their 'wish list.' Although the universe is unlikely to be as accommodating where numerous wishes of yours are concerned, you're encouraged to apply more focus to what matters most to you. Otherwise, you might be at risk of wanting too much, too soon. By spreading yourself too thinly, you could be at risk of allowing a unique opportunity to slip through your fingers. Be honest and discerning about what truly inspires you. Then, prepare to identify the steps needed to make it yours.
October is not a month to look backward and focus intently on what you'd change if you had the chance to do so. Since April, you've reflected and considered the progress you'd like to make, but might have felt that making it was on par with wading through waist-high, wet concrete. Although you'll likely experience an array of ingenious ideas and a noticeable increase in love and comfort during the coming weeks, it's Pluto's change of direction that heralds the start of a new and transformative chapter. From as early as October 3, you could apply lessons learned and insights gained during recent months to create a future that truly inspires you. Then, prepare to be delighted at discovering how attainable it is.
Most alarm clocks these days incorporate technology that assists us to wake calmly to sampled sounds of birds singing softly or trance-like music layered over waterfalls. Some people prefer the old-fashioned, harsh sound of clanging metal. This month, as Pluto awakens from its five-month slumber, you might feel something equally harsh – briefly. Since April, you've been afforded free reign in some way or benefited from a confidence-related comfort zone. During the coming weeks, your confidence could be subjected to a short, sharp shock. Try to see this as similar to kickstarting it. Soon, you'll cease taking small steps and start making significant strides, once again.
There's always something understandable or seemingly justifiable about adopting a 'once bitten, twice shy' attitude. We're naturally cautious toward challenges or opportunities because of unpleasant experiences with something similar previously. Back in April, Pluto, 12 years into a 15-year visit to Capricorn, appeared to move backward. This has probably contributed to feeling 'stuck' or that effort invested has, more often than not, been more of a waste of time than helpful. This month, the planet of transformation awakens from its 5-month slumber. It's time to adopt a fresh, positive attitude toward what you've grown tired of or deflated by recently. One small attitude shift really can bring spectacular results.
We all create and enjoy comfort zones, and these can be as mental as they are physical. There can be something unusually comfortable about creating reasons not to take risks or necessary action, and rigid mindsets can set in. These add the essential fuel to complacency. This month, you could be aware of how easy it has been in recent months to do nothing in an area of your world rather than take the initiative and see what a bit of effort brings. You've had enough time to assess an idea or plan. It's now necessary to push aside fear attached to taking steps to turn it from a vision into something that is not only real but can also bring a wave of comfort from the pride you feel at having finally risen to a challenge.
How influential do you believe yourself to be? Perhaps, events this month will remind you of how looked-up to or admired you are. Whether it's because there's something you do that you make appear easy, you possess a talent or skill that others admire or are envious of or both; you could be surprised at the Pied Piper-style influence you hold. This is a month to let your unique, creative abilities shine and possibly like never before. In a world where many people daren't dare to be different, you have a superb chance to attract the right kind of attention. Don't allow opportunities you should seize gravitate to others because you feel they're worthier of them. Step forward confidently into the spotlight and be the leader others need.
