October is when the Sun transits through the Air element of Libra and the Water element of Scorpio. This month Venus (love, money, beauty & female) will go retrograde on October 8th – November 17th in the sign of Scorpio (intensity, sexuality, transformation). Venus, the planetary ruler of Taurus and Libra, will also be traveling close to her partner in crime, Mars (passion, drive, energy, action & male) which is the planetary ruler of Aries and co-ruler of Scorpio, in the beginning of the month.So, this month will be highly focused on relationships, love and what we value in life. Past relationships, lovers and business partners may show up in unexpected places. Having an encounter with a past relationship doesn’t mean that person is supposed to be back in your life (but it could…). This person may be giving you an opportunity to look at how far you’ve progressed in your life thus far. Or this person may show you how you still need to let go of old wounds, hurts, and grudges that are not serving you to move forward in your life in way that is light, clean and healthy to attract what you are truly looking for. Pay attention this month to see who sends an email, calls, or who you run into at a random place. How do you feel when you see that person… Do you feel happy, excited, sad, angry, perplexed… Whatever the feeling, honor it and take the necessary steps to bring it back to a healthy place so you can move forward in life with less baggage 🙂
