Raphael tells us what’s written in the stars this month
October is likely to be a month of reflection for many of you. You may have been through a trying period of late and much of this could be down to your own failings. It’s no good trying to mend the ship after it is already sinking. You need to start planning a little better and take your responsibilities more seriously. For many of you, it’s not just you who will be affected by these actions.
Health issues could be affecting you and they may even be hitting your mood. In truth, any treatment you are receiving may not be providing you with a solution and you should not be afraid to question the medical course your GP or consultant has suggested. You know your own body best, so speak up! On occasions you don’t voice what you are thinking.
It’s no secret that you are struggling with a dilemma but you are going to have to come to terms with the situation – and – if it is proving too difficult, perhaps get the issue dealt with once and for all. The reason it has such a profound effect is that the problem impacts on your relationship with a close friend. Don’t be afraid to reach out and engage.
Your competitive spirit comes to the fore this month as you accept a challenge from a friend, which, although made in good humour, soon becomes more serious as you both decide to up the stakes. There could be something else behind this driving you both and it might be wise to talk through your actions together before serious damage is done. Remember, at the heart of this you are friends.
Watch your step and tread carefully in romantic circles this month because eyes are watching and waiting to catch you out. You may think you have covered all your tracks but experience tells us that this is very rarely the case and, unless you want to become the victim of your own desires, analyse exactly whether you can really afford to take the risk! Fleeting pleasures are just that but the impact of succumbing to temptation could make you regret so much more in the long run.
This October sees you thinking back on past romances and still realising that the ache of a recent relationship has not quite left you yet. This could account for your general dissatisfaction with life, along with the uncertainty that you are feeling about your future. However, your destiny lies in your own hands so make sure you stay in the driving seat. If you are harbouring regrets then do something about it.
Relationships are often like the seasons, changeable and unpredictable. For some of you October will be a month when a relationship goes through a positive high, which is just as well since things have been hard going recently. The next few months, should bring about a more balanced and healthy cycle that will see you cementing your ties and planning further ahead into the future.
October is going to be the month when you finally get around to cementing your future in the business arena as a career ambition is finally realised. It might be something you have been working on for a few months now but it won’t be until the 19th that things are confirmed in writing and a real commitment made. It’s going to mean a lot of changes but the long-term benefits will be huge.
Having made great strides on the business front, you are now able to plan your way forward and, with the right strategy in place, you should be able to extend your reach and achieve great things this month. Good news by post will also spur you on creatively whilst a special person in your life could surprise you with a very tempting offer. It’s a good time for you right now and you need to make the most of it without any reservations.
Passions run high for many of you this month as you are faced with a difficult choice when it comes to a loved one. Your discovery of an indiscretion in a relationship will test your commitment to a partner and could very well see you deciding to take a step back or even ending a long-term marriage or union. Ultimately it all remains in your hands but don’t stall on a decision. The most important thing you can do here is to be decisive.
Not a sign to ever stop still, as a major project slowly reaches its conclusion, so you are already thinking about what challenge to undertake. Chief amongst the opportunities is a major business investment that could land you significant financial rewards later. Of course you do need to also think about taking some time out to relax because there is more to life than just one business deal after another.
A face from the past will return to your life, bringing an opportunity to progress in a different direction. It might not be something you initially feel suits you but there is no question of it enhancing your future prospects. It could all come down to you having to decide just how comfortable you are in your current situation and whether you can find the courage to make a change that will lead to more exciting things.
