Mon Oct 1: Dreams
Don't be surprised if you have strange dreams now; subconscious issues tend to come to the surface when the Moon transits your twelfth house. Many of you will also experience psychic phenomena at this time... as grounded as you are, sometimes it isn't just your imagination. Pay attention to your intuition as it is not likely to lead you down the wrong path. Benefical colors are lavender and
silver. Lucky numbers are 21 and 30.
Tue Oct 2: High Gear
The Moon travels through Taurus, putting you into high gear. You'll have extra charm, so don't hesitate to ask for what you want. Express yourself with confidence, even in the face of opposition. There may be hurdles to overcome, but with classic Taurean persistence, you can reach your goals.<
Auspicious colors are white and cherry red. Lucky numbers are 1 and 10.
Wed Oct 3: Extra Zing!
The Moon in your sign adds extra zing to your life, and as sweet Venus, your life-ruler enters earthy Virgo for a month, your romantic side comes out. You can also improve relationships with children and expand social contacts. Remember to curb that extravagance in your pursuit of pleasure. Artistic urges are stimulated. Speculation is favoured, but use your head and consult your partner
before blowing the lot! Advantageous colors are crimson and pearl. Lucky numbers are 19 and 28.
Thu Oct 4: Creative Bulls
The Moon enters Gemini and your second house of personal finances today, inspiring you to get some work done. Gemini rules the hands, so you may find enjoyment in manual work. The Bull often enjoys using his or her hands for profit, including such professions as massage therapist, chef, and florist. It's time to heal and create! Fortunate colors are sage green and copper. Lucky numbers are 2
Fri Oct 5: Partnership And Alliances
You'll be industrious with the Moon in your house of values. The energy flows and work comes more easily. Saturn and Mercury hit Scorpio today, so the cosmic focus targets partnership, alliances and joint ventures. Should there be disappointment or seriously diverging opinions and goals, the relationship will suffer. It may even be terminated, if compromise cannot be reached. But a
longer-lasting, more stable marriage or alliance may emerge if difficulties are surmounted and commitments strengthened in weeks ahead. Advantageous colours are terra cotta and deep green. Lucky numbers are 7 and 25.
Sat Oct 6: Practical Taureans
Be as practical as possible as your finances fluctuate; you don't want to count your eggs before they hatch but in an unpredictable economy, you don't want to be too conservative, either. This may be a good time to buy stock in something you've always wanted, especially if the prices have come down. You could be worth a fortune in the future! Fortunate colors are silver and gold. Lucky
numbers are 8 and 17.
Sun Oct 7: Out And About
The Moon travels through Cancer and your third house of communication today, urging you to get out and about.

Tonight is wonderful for getting together with friends... perhaps a costume party or community event will appeal to you. Favorable colors are baby blue and banana yellow.
Lucky numbers are 5 and 23.
Mon Oct 8: Neighborly Bulls
The Moon continues through Cancer today, adding a neighborly note. If the weather allows, take a walk in your vicinity. Do you know the names of your nearest neighbors? Our modern society has forgotten the importance of community. Even if you don't care to socialize with those in your patch, it's important to know who they are. Advantageous colors are sunny yellow and sky blue. Lucky numbers
are 11 and 14.
Tue Oct 9: Snuggle Pot
The Moon moves through Leo and your fourth house of home and family, encouraging you to snuggle with the ones you love. There's no need to push yourself today, especially while sweet Veunus aspects transformative Pluto.

Benefical colors are sea green and oyster. Lucky numbers are 4 and 15.
Wed Oct 10: Level Headed
You may wish you had stayed in bed as the Moon squares Mercury, making this a frustrating day. You can save the day with practical thinking, so don't allow others to confuse you. Keep a level head as you navigate the day, taking everything one step at a time. An erratic supervisor, teacher, or other authority figure may give you grief. Remember that two wrongs don't make a right! Favorable
colors are pearl white and lavender. Lucky numbers are 22 and 24.
Thu Oct 11: Indulgent Bulls
The mood lightens today as the Moon moves through Virgo and your fifth house of romance and pleasure. It's a good day to take a long lunch with a friend.

colors are bronze and amber. Lucky numbers are 19 and 33.
Sat Oct 13: Get Organised!
The more tidy and efficient you can be today, the more successful you'll be. Organize important papers so you're not trying to find them at the last minute; you'll be embarrassed if you are caught unprepared. Eating right, getting moderate exercise, and sticking to a sensible sleep schedule will go far in helping you to get ahead in life. Auspicious colors are navy blue and light tan. Lucky
numbers are 6 and 23.
Sun Oct 14: Big Issues
Those of you in intimate relationships will find that your partner wants to talk about big issues today. Go ahead and open up... while Mercury is in your house of partnerships, communication is vital and healing.

Fortunate colors are forest green and burgundy. Lucky numbers are 19 and 26.
Mon Oct 15: New Moon
With the New Moon activating your sixth house of health and service, it's time to evaluate your daily habits. How long has it been since you last flossed your teeth? Have you been getting regular exercise? Your work environment is also an important consideration. Advantageous colors are steel gray and ice blue. Lucky numbers are 42 and 44.
Tue Oct 16: Being There

numbers are 25 and 36.
Thu Oct 18: Pay Attention
The Moon moves into your eighth house of sex, money and power today, urging you to go deeper in intimate relationships. It's time to listen to what others have to say, so pay attention to both what is said and what is not said. Singles may feel like going out on the prowl; this is fine, but be on the lookout for those who would take advantage of your kind nature. Auspicious colors are wine
red and bronze. Lucky numbers are 9 and 18.
Fri Oct 19: Fresh Air
Some unpleasantness with the authorities will pass and the financial woes will soon be gone.

Sat Oct 20: Soaring High
If the weather permits, this is the kind of day for flying kites.

Sun Oct 21: Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained
With the cosmic concentration on Scorpio, many of you will be at odds with a partner today about the best way to do things.

Advantageous colors are desert
sand and ruby red. Lucky numbers are 18 and 26.
Tue Oct 23: Highlights
The Moon continues to trek through your ninth house, urging you to make plans for tomorrow. The ninth house also rules writing and publishing... have you considered writing your memoirs? You don't have to be famous to pen the highlights (and low lights) of your life; consider doing this for your children, as diaries and journals are often the most treasured possession of grandchildren and
great-grandchildren. Fortunate colors are burnt orange and chocolate brown. Lucky numbers are 5 and 7.
Wed Oct 24: Take A Break
The Moon enters Pisces and your eleventh house of friendships and associations today. Take a break and go out for a long lunch with your favourite people. It's time to leave your cares behind.

colors are sparkling orange and lime green. Lucky numbers are 15 and 19.
Fri Oct 26: Lighthearted
Enjoy the lighthearted mood as the Moon continues to travel through your eleventh house of friendship.

You don't want to wear yourself out if you're celebrating Halloween later this week! Turn in early
for best results. Auspicious colors are turquoise and teal. Lucky numbers are 24 and 25.
Sat Oct 27: Lunar Low
The Moon in Aries and your twelfth house of secrets and seclusion makes this a rather dreary day. It's best not to push yourself physically.

Advantageous colors are midnight blue and sunset pink. Lucky numbers are 3 and 12.
Sun Oct 28: Office Romance..?
Some of you may have a hard time getting out from under the covers today; sleep in if that's what your body is telling you to do. This is a day for quiet pursuits and pleasures, so don't expect or demand too much of yourself. As Venus enters Libra, an office romance may be on your agenda in days ahead.

also favoured. Beneficial colors are iridescent green and lavender. Lucky numbers are 21 and 30.
Mon Oct 29: Full Moon
The Taurus Full Moon could be a very romantic one for you; some of you may be prepared to make a lifelong commitment at this time.

blue and pure white. Lucky numbers are 1 and 7.
Tue Oct 30: Charisma

Wed Oct 31: Halloween
This could be a wickedly fun day for those who plan to celebrate All Hallows Eve.

and ivory. Lucky numbers are 2 and 8.
