It’s not easy to tell a Taurus they need to cut back on unnecessary expenses, but that’s exactly what the Universe is telling you in your October 2017 Money Horoscope. Your goal is to simplify your finances now, well in advance of Saturn’s move out of your eighth house of shared money in December, when the Universe could force the matter if you haven’t taken care of it earlier. Think of it as cleaning up your room before you’re told to; things are more pleasant that way. Now that we’ve gotten the forewarning out of the way, you can look forward to having your ruling planet, Venus, as well as the New Moon and Mars, filling up your sixth house of daily work and reputation between the 14th and 22nd. It seems that all of your hard work and dedication to the job is being noticed and this could lead to a promotion or a raise before year’s end. A key day to pay attention to is the 27th when a work-related responsibility may fall into your lap. You can handle this.
