Golden October promises to be a memorable month. Exciting things can happen when two passion planets are in the same sign; Mars and Venus in Scorpio! Mars, which represents desire, sexuality, and dynamic energy, is a major motivator now. Mars is especially powerful in Scorpio because it rules that sign, along with Pluto.
Venus represents the desire for love, pleasure, and profit, and also the urge to either improve or form friendships. While this energy is available, you can find opportunities to improve both yourself and your life. Be on the lookout for new ideas, friends, and locations.
From Mars’ influence, you may feel stronger, more insistent, and more impulsive. Your energy, enthusiasm, and self-confidence can soar this month. Venus can refine, soften, or weaken whatever it touches. Positive aspects to Venus tend to refine, sweeten, or deepen, while harsh aspects can weaken, or create opposition.
Plan your October activities to take place when these two planets are forming positive aspects in your personal chart. (To find this out, order a mini-reading from Elizabeth Joyce).
Venus turns retrograde on October 8th, continuing through mid-November. During this period review your priorities, expenses, and relationships to see if you can make any changes.
On October 23rd, the Sun enters Scorpio, focusing more strongly on events that will affect you according to your personal chart. When Mars enters Sagittarius on the 28th, you may become more adventurous or reckless. Watch your driving and what you say or write to others. Enjoy yourself over the Halloween weekend, and don’t do anything you may later regret.
