Autumn is officially here, and the crisp air signals a lot more than your chance to buy a new winter coat. Get your game face on and get strategic: it’s time to switch up your career plans in line with the stars.
With Jupiter now in uber-efficient Virgo and Mars and Venus joining the party throughout November, professional pulling-power is stratospheric for all constellations.
Follow your sign-by-sign guide and watch your work life go stellar.
Barring Mercury’s recent retrograde, you’ve been working like crazy since September. And it’s all good, Aries, because the projects you’ve been juggling are about to come together. Even though you typically prefer to go solo, consider collaborating with someone who can keep up with you in mid-November, when your ruler Mars moves into your house of partnership. You’re going straight to the top – and FAST, but you need another savvy wingman to help you carry the load. Make sure to schedule in plenty of downtime. You don’t want to burn out before you can enjoy all that success.
You’re basically a genius right now, thanks to Jupiter’s recent move into your house of creativity and pleasure. But hard work is not its own cure – you need a treat to keep you motivated. Book dinner with friends after work or just switch off your phone and collapse on the sofa. The Full Moon is in your own sign on 27 October – this is the ideal time to get away so you can come back to work in world-domination mode this November, fueling your massive creative potential all the way through 2016.
The planet of luck and good fortune recently moved into your home zone, kick-starting a ton of good fortune for your home life. This doesn’t mean you have stay home 24/7, but it does mean that you’ll be more efficient if you can get out of the office now and then. If you can, work from home for a few days a week. You can be just as efficient in your favourite pajamas, Gemini.
This fall is all about next-leveling your communication game, Cancer. You’re known as a shy sign, but with the planet of luck in your house of talking, thinking, writing and texting, all that’s about to change. If you’ve wavered about asking for that well-deserved promotion, remember that Jupiter, Venus and Mars are all on your team at the moment. Practice by writing down your thoughts first, and carefully recite them with the conviction you’ve secretly had all along. This is also prime time for a major public relations or social media push, especially during the final week of October. Your message will be received loud and clear.
You spent the first three seasons of 2014 refining your self-image (thanks to Jupiter’s presence in your dramatic sign) but right at the start of autumn, the planet of luck left your constellation. You’d think this would be a bummer, but it’s just the opposite, Leo – because it’s time to turn your rock-solid poise into cold, hard cash. With three major planetary players in your money zone through mid-November, autumn is all about the numbers game – figure out how much you’re truly worth, then tell your boss (or soon-to-be boss) exactly what you need. If you’re currently unemployed, aim super high – there’s no reason to settle for less.
You’ve waited twelve long years for this, Virgo – and it’s finally here. At the beginning of autumn, you got an extra special birthday present – Jupiter, planet of luck, bounty and expansion, moved into your own sign. The ultimate bonus is that during the next few months (through mid-November) both Mars and Venus will also be here, helping you to do more than just create your vision board. This is all about major manifestation – think bigger than big, because by mid-2016, you’ll have your dream job, or be the next CEO of a startup of your own making. Dream big and work hard.
If you’re willing to take risks in October, success is all yours. The planets will help you overcome your tendency to retreat. Jupiter’s position in your house of dreams through mid-2016 means you’ll be focused inward more often, making you feel a bit neurotic. That means you’ll have to strategically choose the moments to put just go for it. One of those moments comes at the New Moon on 11 November – an ideal time to make some serious cash. Your star rises for the rest of the month with the help of your ruler Venus and Mars both in your own sign, making you queen bee from now to Christmas.
After 23 October it’s high time to put your investigative skills to good work. Scorpio season brings more than just your birthday: you’re making like Taylor and embracing the squad you to get you to the top. Who and where are the right people that can help you make it? The gaggle of planets in your networking zone through mid-November will help you find them. Rev up your social media game - it’s time to connect with a new tribe of friends and followers who can hook you up with the meaningful work you’ve always wanted.
Jupiter landed in your house of careers earlier in the autumn and maximum impact begins now. Don’t waste a minute, because your dream job is within reach. You haven’t had a chance like this for twelve years. You’ll have to work hard, and you won’t be able to skip steps thanks to Saturn in your own sign, but it’s so worth it. Focus and don’t get distracted. This is especially potent before mid-November, when a series of power planets line up in your professional zone, propelling you to go all the way (and then some). The New Moon in your sign on 11 December is perfect for making your wish list, and then making it happen.
It’s time to take a business trip, Capricorn. The stars are lining up in your house of travel and adventure in late October and November. Jupiter arrived in this part of your chart late in the summer, and action planet Mars and cash-magnet Venus joined the party more recently. You’re so practical and reasonable, but right now the stars want you to take a chance. If you can arrange a trip abroad, or at least collaborate with someone from a different city, you’ll fire on all cylinders. Just remember your autumnal mantra: the bigger the risk the greater the reward. Take time off near the New Moon in your retreat zone on 11 December – you’ll need a rest.
You’re experiencing a once-in-twelve-years professional transformation, Aquarius, and even if it feels weird at times, your career is about to thank you for it. It starts with getting really serious about your network: who do you know, and who do your friends know? Someone you connect with (or reconnect with) could be the key to your success. Next on the agenda, and particularly potent through mid-November – clearing up old debts. Whether you owe money or a simple favour, if you can even the score you’ll see your own fortunes turn shortly after. It might seem like opportunities show up as if by magic around the New Moon on 11 December – but it’s not magic, it’s just your hard-earned karma paying off.
The stars are about to show you how to work partnership like a champion. Someone who you recently met or will soon meet could prove to be the perfect person to launch your newest project with. With lucky Jupiter, hyper-driven Mars and moneymaking Venus all in your house of partnerships through mid-November, your work shines when you share your ideas with another person – one who totally gets your vision and wants to get you to the next level. If you already have a professional partner, get super clear about your goals and shared agenda – together, you’ll make it happen.
