October 2016 Pet Business Astrology Forecast

Having a vision and your ability to persuade colleagues, partners, and clients to buy into that vision will drive your success this month. Negotiation, horse-trading, cooperation, and give or take is the key to accomplishment. Mental energy is strong and discussions often lively.

This is to be expected as Libra’s drive for harmony and balance dominates the early October skies.

By definition this means you find yourself addressing the impact of your wishes and actions on others who may not share your needs and priorities. Others won’t be motivated to buy in unless they see a benefit for themselves. Here Libra’s balancing act asserts itself as you adjust for priorities of others without losing your focus.

Being open to rebels and malcontents in your group can open you to options you may not have otherwise considered. But some discernment is needed to distinguish between those with a legitimate point of view and those focused on growing their own power.

Libra points out that both the office conference table and the kitchen table are places where words and actions are reflected back at you. Listen with an open mind. With a little humility and a lot of objectivity, you can have an enlightening learning experience.

Fortunately as October opens, Mercury is in Virgo and your mind is razor-sharp and quick to pick up on fine print.

Mars, spending the month in Capricorn, heightens your ability to create goals and create the strategy to carry them out.

Venus, spending the first half of the month in magnetic Scorpio, knows just how to push the right buttons with her charm, much like the steel magnolias of the Old South.
