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)

As Venus retrogrades through your 3rd House of the Mind, you could find that you’re mind is being drawn back inexorably to people and places you’ve loved in the past. If you start to think fondly of someone you no longer see enough of, this is a good time to get back in touch. For some, it’s going to be all about finding the wherewithal to say that thing you know you should have said earlier – having the heart to heart that’s been put off by delays and circumstance. Think and then speak.

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)

Ker-ching! That’s the sound of the New Moon which is taking place in your 2nd House which is the part of your chart which is all about cash, property and possessions. If you want changes in any of these parts of your life, this New Moon is the ideal time to start to make the changes you want to. Remember that money is energy and it responds quite quickly to our thoughts of abundance or lack. If you know you’ve been thinking negatively about cash, use this New Moon as a marker and decide that henceforth you will turn your thoughts and expectations about cash around.

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 brings about tension as the Moon takes the exactly opposite position in the skies to the Sun. The Sun is where our focus has been – for you for the past few weeks, this has been on Your Own Backyard – your neighbourhood, aunts, uncles and sibling, little tasks, quick trips and lots of chats. Now the Full Moon asks that you shift your focus a little and that you step back and look at The Bigger Picture. If life is a cosmic quest, how are you doing? Do what it takes to expand your mind. PS If you’re thinking about taking up some kind of study or starting to travel, you have heavenly support.

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…

Over the next few weeks, as Mercury cruises your Third House, you can expect to be meeting new people, travelling a bit and even getting to know your neighbours (it’s the ideal time to organise a Street Party). Also, if you’ve been out of touch with your siblings, there should be more opportunities to get together and make up for lost time. This transit of Mercury also bestows you with greater mental agility – if you have a written project or task you’ve been putting off, leap into it now as you’ll find the words come more easily. Overall, communications, conversations, emails, texts and phone calls are going to be taking up a lot of your time and life should flow more smoothly (and quickly) because you’ll find it much easier to talk to anyone and everyone now. Express yourself. This is not the time to be making weighty decision but it’s an excellent time to be gathering information.

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 3rd house…

Yes, you have had Jupiter in your 3rd House of the Mind. Jupiter is the happiest-go-luckiest of all the planets. Having him in your Mind Zone is like putting a lovely effervescent tablet out in your waters, Did you feel it? Hopefully Jupiter spent the past 12 months lightening things up! Hopefully you are coming out of this cycle a better communicator. Yes?

AND FINALLY, YOU ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT…

Love planet Venus is retrograding this month, and she is doing it in your Communications Zone. Therefore if there is a love or money conversation you should have had some time ago, or one which you want to reprise, now is the time. There is a New Moon supporting you in this mission too, so speak up for yourself!
