With your ruling planet Venus turning retrograde on October 5, you’re likely to feel out of sorts all month. Venus will retrograde in your 2nd House of Earned Income, making it vital for you to reassess your finances. The 2nd house also rules your self-worth profile — and that is an even bigger but you’ll need to crack.
It’s likely that something is going on with your love life that has somehow weakened your confidence or overall self-concept. You’re probably not feeling as valued or appreciated by your partner if you’re in a relationship. If this is the case, now is the time to make your feelings known to your mate.
At the same time, it’s an uncomfortable truth that the minute you put your happiness or personal fulfillment in another person’s hands, you’re asking for trouble.
If you’ve been doing that in your love life, then you need to have a heart-to-heart talk with yourself. Stop waiting for your partner to be your validation and learn how to be your own biggest fan.
A New Moon in your sign on October 8 will help you out in a significant way. You want to turn over a new leaf in your personal life and how you teach others to treat you.
Between this lunation and Venus being retrograde in your sign from October 31 through November 16, you’ll have a major opportunity for a personal excavation that will ultimately lead you to a more fulfilling love life in every way possible.
The level of excavation you’re about to do in your love life is not for the faint of heart, Scorpio. Thankfully, you’re fully equipped to handle this type of intense, brutal digging. Make no mistake, it’ll be the kind that can collapse your world and leave you at the mercy of the unknown.
Yet, if you’re strong enough to confront this darkness, eventually you’ll come out on the other side — and maybe, just maybe, find the kind of love that most of us can only dream about experiencing with another soul.
This is the kind of transcendental love connection that requires complete surrender, a total willingness to be gutted in order to feel the cathartic release of total healing and empowerment in love. As I said, this isn’t for the faint of heart.
Venus turns retrograde in your sign on October 5 and for the rest of this month, you’ll be forced to confront every single personal demon you have that prevents you from experiencing the deep intimacy you simultaneously crave and fear with another person.
If you’re single, you’ll go beneath the surface and take an honest assessment of the walls you might have erected around your heart.
If you’re in a relationship, then it’s possible you and your partner will need to readdress a demon in your relationship that you thought had already been exorcized. Don’t be afraid. Shining a light on the darkest parts of yourself and your partner makes your love all the more real … and all the more worth fighting for.
There was something about your love life scenario that you didn’t want to face, Sagittarius. Sure, it’s possible that you were innocently blind due to your naive and optimistic nature. Whatever the case, the blinders are about to come off this October. Where you were once blind, you will now see.
It might hurt, but what is the alternative? Would you rather keep living a lie so that you can indulge in the fantasy world of fairytale romance you want so much?
Or would you prefer to deal with the pain now and address it accordingly so that you can eventually get to a place in your current relationship (or with someone new) that is healthy and real?
Venus turns retrograde on October 5 in your 12th House of Privacy, so like it or not, the secrets are about to be highlighted. If you’re participating in anything unsavory, it might blow up.
If you’re not doing anything wrong per se but are sitting in a sea of confusion about your love life, the universe is going to put enough pressure on you, forcing you through the confusion into clarity.
How can you reach clarity when everything seems so complicated? This is definitely a time to trust your intuition. If a love situation is not serving your highest good, then it’s time to let go.
If, however, you’re in a difficult relationship with someone who is devoted to you but fighting some type of dark issue, then you might choose to stay. While it’s not your job to be your partner’s dragon slayer, it certainly is a testament to your commitment.
You might have been convinced that the person you’re dating now is “The One” and that you’re going to live happily ever after … and then you’ll walk into October and start questioning everything you ever thought to be true about love.
This dramatic shift is due to Venus turning retrograde in the area of your chart connected to your capacity to receive love. You might have an awakening that you’ve been settling because the alternative of being alone simply feels unbearable.
If that’s the case, you’ll find that you simply can’t continue to go through the motions with someone who isn’t capable of making you feel deeply loved.
For those who are single, you might find yourself in a sudden and very sticky love connection with someone in your social circle by the end of the month. Be careful and take things slowly. There is a great deal of spark here but not enough staying power.
All month long you’re under a temperamental influence that can cause you to change your mind about your love life more than ever before. Ironically, through all this instability, you’ll eventually find out what your heart needs the most.
It’s quite possible that you’ll find yourself in a salacious situation this month concerning your love life. Whether it’s an outright affair, a dangerous office romance, or anything else, there is the potential for your reputation to be damaged — or at least for someone to try to damage it — if you’re not careful.
With Venus turning retrograde in your 10th House of Profession and Status on October 5 in mysterious Scorpio, the darker side of romantic problems is about to come out. In your case, they’ll somehow tie into your professional life or your reputation.
Maybe your partner is going through something difficult and your choice to stand by him or she will come at a personal cost to you. If so, your commitment to the love you share will be admirable and your partner will not soon forget your loyalty.
If you’ve found yourself in a compromising position at the office where a higher up has crossed a line and sexually harassed you, it’s possible that you’ll have more than a #MeToo moment this month.
You might decide to become vocal about your experience and in doing so, uncover that you’re not the only one this happened to. You might even initiate a lawsuit after October 8 surrounding this issue. Stand your ground.
Oh, Pisces … you are the most compassionate, kind, and forgiving sign in the zodiac. These beautiful qualities make you extremely lovable. Unfortunately, they can also make you somewhat gullible and likely to forgive and look the other way when you really shouldn’t.
There might be someone you’re involved with who you gave a second chance to. The love you have was so strong, and if you needed to forgive this person for a moral indiscretion, you decided that he or she deserved that forgiveness.
However, the problem as you walk into October is that you thought you were moving on from this situation — but there might be a repeat offense you find out about.
This can be anything from cheating, lying, stealing, or an unhealthy addiction that your partner swore was under control. The relapse — in whatever fashion it might be — will make you realize that the problem did not go away — it was just cleverly masked for a little while.
