Ooh, la la! Venus, planet of all things pleasurable, shifts into your very own sign on October 8th. This is an annual visit, so best to make the most of her sugary sweetness. Your milkshake definitely brings everyone in the neighborhood to your proverbial yard, so to speak. Even if you consider yourself somewhat of a nerd, this should give you plenty of self confidence, not to mention a yearning to be more loving and affectionate overall. Your ruler, Mercury, also changes sectors twice, on the 4th in your values sector and on the 22nd in your communication zone, respectively. This stirs up a desire to find greater material balance as well as to make decisions that are strategic, calculated, and downright clever.
Wave goodbye to Venus, as she’s leaving your sign and heading into a brand-new sector for you of home and foundation on November 8th. Don’t worry, you’ll be able to keep the momentum going. Your confidence is still likely to be soaring. In fact, this confidence may be such that you decide it’s high time to put it to good use - and maybe even generate some financial abundance from them. Or, you’re simply enjoying a period of indulgence, pleasure, and nice things. Because you deserve nice things. Everyone does. You don’t always have to work hard to have pleasure. Pleasure is your birthright. And you will always, always know when it’s time to balance the scales.
It’s retrograde season, what with your ruler, Mercury, doing his backward jig from the 13th onwards. He dips a toe into your creativity and romance sector from the 1st until the 23rd, igniting the desire to enjoy pleasure, flirt, and connect with your sweetie or new crush on a practical yet playful level. Then, on the 23rd, he briefly revisits your domestic world, urging you to review a conversation you’ve been having with a family member, roommate, or partner. Be honest with them. Be real. Let them know exactly where you stand, even if that rubs them up the wrong way - though a touch of tact won’t go amiss either.
