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)

You have a second chance at love coming your way as the planet of love, Venus, retrogrades in your 7th House this year. If you’re still hold a torch for an old flame, this could be the time for you to refind each other. If there’s no such thing going on in your life, you are still likely to feel this transit. All your personal relationships are getting a second chance and if you’re attached happily or even not-so happily, this Venus double dip could be just what the celestial doctor ordered to sweeten things up a bit.

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)

Oh you lucky lucky thing! You have the New Moon in your 6th House. In one way, this is one of the most dull and tedious Houses. It’s the part of your chart which is all about your daily routines. Not exactly riveting! However, this is also the part of your chart where you get a New Moon and you get a chance to tweak your routines so that at the very least, your daily life runs in a way that pleases you. If there are minor changes you need to make to the way your life runs, to your routines and schedules, then this is a great month to put those changes in place.

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)

The Full Moon takes place in your sign which is a sure message from the skies – it’s time to stop thinking so much about someone else, and time to start investing some emotional energy into your own well-being. This is a potentially highly emotional time so don’t be surprised if life feels extra intense. The trick is not to loose your cool, and to stay mindful of the fact that what happens now can be a path to your future. The Full Moon is definitely a marker for you – it can also be a turning point. If you’re not happy about where you life is headed, it’s time to turn and face a new direction.

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 for you if you’ve been working hard and trying to get your life on track. Mercury is moving into your Love Zone – this marks the start of a period of several weeks when you’re more likely to be thinking about Love and Important Others In Your Life than about the mundane details and routines of life. If you’re attached and you and your partner have been having ‘issues’ now is the perfect time to talk things out. If you’re semi-attached and you want to discuss where your relationship is going, this is also the ideal moment, so seize the day (at some point over the next few weeks). And if you’re single, your powers to flirt lightly and effectively have just soared, so get out there and share your extra bubbly personality around. Whatever you do now, do it in partnership if you can – for the next four weeks or so, two minds are definitely better than one.

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 7th house…

Jupiter has neem been paying a once-every-12-year visit to your Love Zone. If your love life hasn’t at least showed a few signs of improvement in the past year then you need to ask yourself some serious questions about what YOU can do to make your relationship life sweeter. You still have one month to go so romance someone while the going is still extra good!

AND FINALLY, YOU ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT…

Venus is moving backwards in your Love Zone which is A. Big. Deal. Venus is the relationship planet and retrogrades only every-18-month reverse cycles. Moreover, Venus is your ruling planet. So all in all; it’s mega. This is the time for you to think about who you really value. Have you been showing them how much you care/making them feel appreciated?
