Venus in Virgo
Thank goodness for your ruling planet Venus this month. On the 2nd, Venus moves into earth sign Virgo where it remains until the 28th. This highlights the sector of your horoscope that rules the good things in life, such as play, romance, children, creativity & fun.
It’s a good idea to follow Venus’ lead and do more of what you love throughout October. Use your earth sign attributes and focus on the small things, the things in life that give you joy.
Keep bringing it back to what you can see, hear, feel, touch. Experience life fully, whether you enjoy a sunset, play with a child or fall in love.
Venus in Virgo activities the sector of your horoscope that rules creativity, your skills and talents, how you express yourself through the things you make, bake or produce.
This is important because it’s a ‘retrograde’ month. Action planet Mars remains on go slow in Aries and the most hidden sector of your horoscope throughout October.
In brief, this means there’s a lot going on on the inside and you may find it a challenge to be out in the world. Take time out if necessary and seek a philosophical or spiritual outlook on life.
This is vital if your plans keep going on hold, especially around travel or education. It would be easy to feel hemmed in or frustrated this month, the key dates being the 9th, 13th and 19th. The Full Moon in Aries on the 1st could indicate where or why you’re being held back.
New Moon Libra
Seek balance in your life throughout October, especially around work, routine, your lifestyle and health. The Sun is in Libra until the 22nd. Take care of your well-being, don’t take on too much and monitor your stress levels carefully.
There’s a New Moon in Libra, the star sign of balance on the 16th. This could be a turning point for you with regard to these key areas of life – work & health. New Moons symbolise new beginnings.
Plus, your ruler, Venus, enters Libra on the 28th – channel your energy into the basics of life and do what feels right. Prioritise your health and well-being.
Relationships are hotting up this month. You have communication planet, Mercury in Scorpio and your relationship sector for most of October. Plus, Venus in Virgo and your romance sector indicates this could be a key month for relationships.
Yet, Mercury moves into its retrograde phase on the 14th. You and someone close might be talking incessantly, trying to sort out problems. Or, perhaps it’s the complete opposite and the one you love has gone awol.
Either way, this is rarely a time when a relationship is on track and it’s not great for making major decisions. The Full Moon in Taurus on the 31st looks especially lively or hectic as it pulls in unpredictable and spontaneous Uranus, currently in your star sign. This could be a pivotal date for love.
Wait until Mercury turns direct on November 3rd before making up your mind about a close relationship or professional partnership. Until then, keep your cards close to your chest.
Stealth is required throughout October – be aware of any secret enemies in your life and keep them at arm’s length. The people behind the scenes who don’t have your best interests at heart.
