The Aries Full Moon eclipse on October 8th conjuncts Uranus Rx, the planet of liberation and surprise. Culminations will have an abrupt flavour, even if they have been building for awhile. Venus (love, money, values) in Libra squares Pluto (power) in Capricorn later that same day, mixing in themes of possession, power balances and strategic evaluations of what you have versus what you want. This eclipse will reveal much, not all of it pleasant, but the Grand Fire Trine (featuring Mars in Sagittarius, Jupiter in Leo and Uranus) ensures that any forward momentum will be positive and relatively easy. You should be ok if you simply move with the prevailing current.
