FIRST INFORMATION FOR ALL THE SIGNS

The love and abundance planet Venus is retrograde

If you follow astrology, you might remember that back in July/August we had a super retrograde period where just about every planet that could be retrograde (Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto) was. However there was one notable exception; the love and abundance planet Venus.

That was then and now most of the planets are moving forwards again. However, this month, on October 6, Venus now goes retrograde. So what does it mean?

As always when a planet is reversing (or appearing to) we get second chances. In this case, Venus retrograde brings second chances to do with love or abundance. In other words, if you are keen to reunite with a past lover or make up with a dear friend after a falling out, it’s possible.

As well, because Venus is about abundance, if you want to renegotiate a financial agreement you have, any time this month after the 6th is potential-packed (especially around the 24th and 31st).

Note that Venus retrograde is also an excellent time for forgiveness so if you wronged someone and want to make amends, October (after the 6th) is a brilliant time to extend the olive branch.

Here is where Venus will be retrograde for you

(at least to start with – at the very end of the month, Venus will go one sign back, into Libra)

Venus is going backwards in your 8th House of Money which is a good thing – even if it doesn’t feel like it yet. On the one hand, you’re being ask to have another think about your finances and where you’re going right and wrong with them. If money is slow in coming right now, don’t panic. Use this period to work on your thoughts about cash – the more you feel like you’re going to be rich, the more likely you are to be rich! Of course, that doesn’t mean by magic! It means your hard work is more likely to be rewarded!

NEW MOON IN LIBRA

Also this month we get the New Moon in Libra

New Moon on October 9 (Sydney) at 16 Libra
New Moon details:
SYDNEY: October 9, 2.46pm
NEW YORK: October 8, 11.46pm
LONDON: October 9, 4.46am

In a way, this will serve to give the Venus retrograde cycle extra power, since Venus and Libra are strongly connected. It also adds weight to the idea that this is the month to work on your relationships, especially any which have been troubled.

Libra is the sign of relating and the New Moon in Libra each year is the ideal time to recommit to the people you care about. This particular New Moon will be clashing with the planet Pluto making it the right time to sever toxic relationships. (If your love life has gone haywire, our free Astrological Compatibility Guide could help you out!)

This doesn’t apply to just romantic relationships – it applies to anyone you relate to, including family and professional connections.

Finally, October is also a wonderful time to decide to let go of a grudge. Life really is too short!

Here’s what the New Moon means in your chart

(remember to read your Rising Sign if you know it and if you don’t know it but wish you did, see here)

How’s your love life? There’s a New Moon in your Love Zone happening which means you’re getting the chance to really reinvigorate your love life. If you’re single, this is the perfect time to draw a line under the past and to move on from your old loves, your old dreams and any old heart aches. If you’re attached, you probably already know about the importance of keeping your relationship fresh – and this New Moon brings in fresh energy, so have a think about some of the times you and your partner can do this month and over the coming month. Remember, some of the best things in life are free!

FULL MOON IN TAURUS

Full Moon on October 25 (Sydney) at 2 Taurus
Full Moon details:
SYDNEY: October 25, 3.45am
NEW YORK: October 24, 12.45pm
LONDON: October 24, 5.45pm

The Full Moon this month takes place in the sign of Taurus which is the sign that you could say is “electrified” right now. Reason being, the planet of electricity, chaos and sudden reversals, Uranus, is in Taurus, and has been for some time.

Indeed, the Full Moon this month actually triggers Uranus, taking place almost right on top of it. Full Moons are always intense, but the Full Moon/Uranus energies this month mean this Full Moon will be super-charged. On the one hand, it makes October excellent for moving on from anyone or anything holding you back.

Liberation is the name of the game. On the other hand, we do need a slight caution; don’t cut what you can untie! Happily, the Full Moon will be in harmony with the nearby planet Saturn, so even if life feels a bit chaotic to start with, overall any changes now should ultimately lead to increased stability later. Think of dramas this month as “the upheaval you had to have”!

That’s the bigger picture. The Full Moon in Taurus means something a bit different everyone too though, depending on your chart.

This is what it means for your star sign

(but remember to read your Rising Sign if you know it and if you don’t know it but wish you did, see here)

Intimacy, power struggles and questions about who has the upper hand, cash, control and joint finances have been a focus for many of your for the past few weeks. This Full Moon suggests that you shift your focus a little. Instead of worrying about who owes and owns what, worry about what you have, and what you have to offer someone else. It’s as thought the Universe is asking you to think less about what someone else can do to make you happy, and to worry more about what you can do to make others comfortable. Rediscover the pleasure of giving.

THE THINGS ON OUR MINDS…

Meanwhile we get the planet of the mind and communications in the deep and somewhat unfathomable sign of Scorpio this month (this is not a criticism, we all have Scorpio somewhere in our chart!) Wherever Mercury goes our thoughts follow.

So here is what it means for you…

Given that talking can be just a lot of hot air, it’s amazing how incredibly valid and life-changing conversations can also be. Something that someone else says makes us realise some deep dark truth about ourselves or life and whammo! Our whole perspective changes. Over the next few days and weeks, make sure you don’t go backing off from deep and meaningful conversations just because the topic makes you nervous. Don’t be scared of something just because it’s deep. You’ll be amazed at how tacking a subject which feels a bit ‘taboo’ can lead you to seeing everything from a much wider perspective. On a less esoteric level, you can also expect sex and money to take up a lot of your headspace now. If you want to renegotiate your pay or mortgage, it’s a good time to at least put your feelers out. Romantically, if you and your partner have been skimming the surface, expect to go deeper together. Talking about intimate issues will be somehow paradoxically and simultaneously more challenging yet easier.

WHAT ABOUT LOVE?

As mentioned above, Venus is going backwards bringing second chances in love (and a risk of feeling slightly more detached than usual too.) In any case, here are the hottest love dates of the month ahead…

October 5 – Venus retrograde starts
October 10 – tune into the upcoming Venus/Mars connection – it could be sexy
October 24 – Venus/Saturn makes promises more likely to stick today – it’s a good day to finally agree something you have been going backwards and forwards about
October 31 – amazing turnarounds in love are possible around this time

And speaking of love… Are you looking for love? Wondering if you and your partner are meant to be? Questioning if your love is in the stars?

AS FOR THE REST?

There are no other major astrological aspects going on this month so I thought I would give you a bit of a heads up about what’s coming up next month. There are two MAJOR changes to the sky-scape and they are both worth thinking about in advance.
Amazing enough, too, they will both happen within about 48 hours of each other.

THE PLANET OF 5 CUPS OF CRAZY…

The Planet Of 5 Cups Of Crazy, Uranus, will be swinging out of Taurus and back into Aries, after a stay in Taurus which began back in mid-May. Let me tell you this; for the past 18 months I have been telling friends and family and estate agents that Uranus’ move into Taurus was going to stir up the financial markets. That has certainly been the case around the world with more general instability than usual. For example, where I am right now, in London, house prices are coming down to levels not seen for may years. This is no joke. Plus we have seen all the Bitcoin madness predicted, more #metoo action (with Bill Cosby becoming the first #metoo perp to be jailed…) If you want to know more about Uranus in Taurus, it’s all here for free.

But this initial Uranus in Taurus cycle was always only ever going to last 6 months. Next month as Uranus retrogrades, it will reverse back into Aries. Cue more disruption as some of the Taurus issues (hopefully!) settle down and some of the Aries arby-bargy starts up again.

So just be aware of this. Here is a rundown of where the madness has been and where it will soon subside

Aries – financially and re your up and down self-worth
Taurus – your whole life!
Gemini – spiritually
Moonchild – re your friendships
Leo – professionally
Virgo – when it comes to study, travel and the internet
Libra – re sex and money
Scorpio – your love life
Sagittarius – re your daily health and work routines
Capricorn – when it comes to romance, kids and creativity
Aquarius – at home and re family
Pisces – your mind has been s-c-a-t-t-e-r-e-d

Note though that we are not really meant to try and wish any of these cycles away. Working with the chaos will make life from March next year much easier to handle.

AND THEN THERE IS LUCKY JUPITER…

Also note that this is the last month that Jupiter will be in the sign of Scorpio for the next decade and a bit. As of next month, Jupiter will move into Sadge. I will tell you what that means for you then but here is a last reminder of where you have better luck than usual in your chart. If you want to achieve something special in the part of your life mentioned below, this is a good time to redouble your efforts! So you have had lucky Jupiter in your 8th house…

As Jupiter has been through your 8th House for the past year, you hopefully been able to benefit from other people’s resources. That might sound rather dry, but think about it. Who has been there for you, helping you in life? Who is helping you out financially? Be grateful!

And if you haven’t had this help yet, it could still come this month!

AND FINALLY, YOU ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT…

The New Moon in your Love Zone this month clashes with Pluto in your Career Zone, so expect a skirmish to do with your love life, your career and/or where your love life and your career meet. It’s nothing dreadful, but it’s a situation which needs healing, and a mini-crisis could be just what you need to hasten the process.
