Until October 2nd: Mercury continues to transit your solar fifth house. Increased communication with children, romantic partners, and people who share the same hobbies as you can occur now. Mental exercises and competitions can be particularly enjoyable now. You express yourself with warmth and creativity, and you have an appreciative "audience" for your ideas now.
From October 3rd forward: Mercury transits your solar sixth house. This is a good placement for Mercury, as it is the natural ruler of the sixth house. It's an excellent period for sorting out the details of your daily existence. You are inclined to make to-do lists, pay bills and sort out clutter, and to do detail work on the job.
Health matters are most certainly on your brain as well, and you could be thinking of scheduling check-ups or busy researching ways to improve your health. You may also show a keener interest in improving your basic skills. Your approach to work during this cycle is pleasant, happy, and logical for the most part, unless you allow worry or scattered energy to enter the picture. You are inclined to want to learn new work skills, or to improve your skills and output in terms of work.
There is likely to be more activity, movement, contact, and communications with co-workers now. You tend to take more interest in organizing your working environment--and this is an excellent time to do so, as you are especially objective and intelligent when it comes to getting a handle on your daily affairs and all of the "little things" that contribute to a feeling of efficiency and competency. Menial tasks become more prominent.
This set has been around for a couple of years, and this one is the final nudge towards asserting your independence, understanding your relationship needs, and finding yourself. For example, for Pacific Time, subtract 3 hours from the given times. Highly Recommended. As well, Venus enters your social sector where Jupiter is already transiting, and connections with friends or networks can be sweet and satisfying. Because Mercury forms a tense aspect with Neptune as well, however, err on the side of caution if offers arrive that seem too good to be true.
Watch, however, for tension or idle chit-chat interfering with your work output during this cycle. Until October 3rd: Mars continues to activate your solar fourth house. More energy and enthusiasm is brought to your home life, but there can also be a tendency to stir up trouble if you are not careful to channel any excess energy into constructive and productive pursuits around the home.
You desire to take the lead, but you should do so in a respectful way so as not to get anyone's goat. From October 4th onward: Mars animates and energizes your solar fifth house. This is a very self-expressive time when you have lots of energy, but not necessarily self-discipline to match. You have more energy at your disposal to express yourself creatively, through activities with children, romantic activities, hobbies, or sports. Your love life may step up a notch, and this could be an especially passionate time.
You tend to put more energy into play and pleasure! Be careful not to burn the candle at both ends. Also, watch out for a tendency to want to gamble. You are more playful than usual, and especially magnetic. You have a likeably competitive, more energetic, and pleasingly assertive temperament during this transit.
However, in some cases, you may be coming on too strong or aggressively, or meeting with aggressiveness in romantic relationships.

All month: The Sun illuminates your solar fifth house now. After a period of "nesting", you are coming out of your shell, ready to perform and to express yourself creatively. This is a very playful period of the year, when you are inspired creatively and emotionally. After a period of self-protectiveness, you are now more spontaneous and more willing to take risks. You take more pride than usual in your creations, your love affairs, your children, and your hobbies. Pleasure and amusement play an important role in your search for freedom of self-expression now.
Show off your best colors! You want others to take notice, and you are more sensitive to whether people appreciate you. More than any time of the year, this is the cycle in which you focus on having fun, enjoying romance, and expressing yourself creatively.
Your hobbies, leisure time, moments spent with children, gaming time, and so forth, all come into focus at this time of year. This is a cycle in which you find joy in expressing who you are--when your "inner child" comes out to play. This is a time when you are more flirtatious than usual, and when you might take a few risks in life--not only gambling with games but with life itself. You might be a bit of a showman at this time. You are likely feeling good in general, and you tend to spread the joy. Until October 16th: Venus continues to transit your solar fifth house. From October 16th forward: Venus graces your solar sixth house now.
Until October 10th: Mercury continues to transit your solar fifth house. From October 11th forward: Mercury transits your solar sixth house. Until October 19th: Mars continues to activate your solar fourth house.
From October 20th forward: Mars animates and energizes your solar fifth house. Until October 13th: The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar fourth house. This is a period of recharge, of getting in touch with your innermost feelings, of connecting with your roots, and of spending more time and energy on home and family. Watch for a tendency to become involved in power struggles and one-upmanship, and watch for asserting yourself defensively or explosively.
You should make extra effort to respect and validate others when expressing what you need and want. You have a stronger ability to direct your energies into meaningful activities during this period, and going it alone in order to get things done is often helpful. You crave and seek more freedom this year, and how you deal with this issue makes all the difference as to the overriding themes of the year.
If you recognize your need for changes in key areas of your life and adapt accordingly, this can be an exciting year of discovery. However, if you resist change and insist on keeping things status quo, you are bound to feel very restless, tense, and rebellious. Either way, making healthy changes should be the focus instead of change just for the sake of change. Spontaneity, not impulsiveness, is the key to success this year. Fortunately, you have a lot of cosmic support for this. You are expressing yourself more clearly this year and you might help guide or instruct others quite successfully, whether you do this formally or informally.
There is a pronounced ability to order your thoughts and ideas and to recognize patterns. You can especially enjoy making plans, lists, and connections. You are particularly dynamic at this point in your life, sometimes impatient, and you often experience bursts of energy.
Personal magnetism is tremendous this year. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal.
The year ahead is an important one for developing relationships and making beneficial connections. Work on your ability to pace yourself, as it will lead to greater happiness and health.
A more organized approach to money and business can work well for you now. Ruled by Mars. This is a year of completion and transition.
