Dollars and Common SenseLife becomes increasingly intense this month, driving you to develop your talents. Ardent Mars enters unyielding Scorpio and your Second House of Resources on October 4, prodding you to look into financial matters. Reducing expenses to help pay off interest-heavy debts, for example, may require self-restraint now, but it will pay dividends later.

The Full Moon in autonomous Aries on October 14 opposes the Sun in accommodating Libra to put the issue of independence versus partnership on the table.

The real lesson is that successful partnerships require both a respect for the individual and a willingness to compromise from time to time.

Mars enters emotionally intense Scorpio on October 4, moving you past politeness to get to the bottom line. Tense semisquares between Mars and realistic Saturn and Venus and penetrating Pluto on October 5 force you to define your needs and protect your interests. Getting down to brass tacks involves tough-minded negotiations that don't necessarily show your generous side.

Keep optimism in check, because squares from the Sun and Mercury to unrestrained Jupiter on October 6 can make you too unselfish and undermine your recent gains.
