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 9th House of travel, study and self-improvement. If you’re about to go away somewhere that’s going to take you back to someone or somewhere you once loved, you’re totally on the right cosmic vibe. If you’re weighing up a travel or study plan and wondering how much of yourself you want to give or how much you want to spend, then keep wondering – the answers should have come by the end of this cycle. And if you’re reconsidering your whole life and getting your priorities straight, then lucky you! Clarity will arrive soon!

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)

You have the New Moon in your 8th House this month which is the part of your chart which deals with sex and money – sometimes separately and sometimes at the same time! When it comes to sex, if your love life is full, do whatever it takes to rev things up. If you’ve been inhibited, try something new. Go as far as you feel comfortable! Moneywise, it’s all about where your money is involved with someone else, so you have a chance for a restart re your pay or salary PLUS it’s a very good time to set out a debt repayment plan.

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)

Over the past few weeks, you’ve hopefully allowed yourself the luxury of caring less about the details and more about seeing The Big Picture. With any luck, you now have a much clearer sense or either where you are going (in a metaphorical sense) or where you want to go (in a literal sense). There has been mind expanding going on – via travel, dreams of travel, talk with someone with connections far away or study. Now, though, as you might have guessed, it’s time to rein yourself back in and check out what’s going on in your own backyard. There are little tasks and chores which need to be attended to before you head off for the wild blue yonder.

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…

Here’s some good news, if you feel like you’ve had just about all you can take. You’re due a break! The intensity of the past few weeks is about to ease off. The people around you are about to ease off. You no longer have to consider face dark and/or scary facts every time you open your mouth. If you’ve spend the past few weeks tackling intense issues until your head hurts, pat yourself on the back and move on. It’s time to think about all that you’ve learned – this is the start of a four week period when exchanging ideas with others will expand your mind and teach you all kinds of amazing things about yourself and The World We Live In. If you’re about to head off on a journey, you are in perfect timing with the Cosmos. It could be a trip which really opens your mind to the word beyond your backyard. Ditto if you’re about to start a course of study or self-improvement. It’s like someone’s showing you a new area in your brain which you never used before.

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? Then good news; Rescu Academy and your astrologer Yasmin Boland have created a gorgeous quick compatibility guide – it’s free and it’s here! You might also like to watch this preview.

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 9th house…

If you’ve felt a growing yearning to do some travelling or studying, then you’ve felt the presence of Jupiter in this 9th House. For others, opportunities opening up have been all about teaching and/or getting published. The 9th House is the part of your chart where you see the wider world (as opposed to focusing on your own backyard). Jupiter is the expansive planet. Put them together and over the past year, you have had a great chance to broaden your understanding of the world. How are you doing with that?

AND FINALLY, YOU ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT…

If you are weighing up questions about where you want to be, where you want to spend most of your time, you should start to get some answers now. Maybe you have been mulling over the idea of relocating, temporarily or permanently? Traveling? Adventuring? Working out who and what matters most to you will help you decide where to be/go.

A FINAL WORD…

We are giving you a FREE gift of a lesson with Annie Gurton on the MADNESS OF LOVE.
