What have you been waiting for? If it’s news or a decision that affects your work, study or business, this week could see it arrive. But chances are – you were already anticipating the result.
Share the love
Try some inspired re-invention and re-involvement
Go with that last minute plan for amazing results
Time to leap into inspiration and intuition, to let others into your inner world – your thoughts, ideas and share your feelings in a more open, loving way. Go deeper into creative self-expression. And explore opportunities and potential you may have missed. Allow your ideas to carry you forward, and please, revisit any that keep popping into your thoughts that you have set aside or abandoned. There’s hidden treasure to be mined this October.
If you’re already thinking all this has a distinct retrograde feel to it – you’d be right. However, it’s not Mercury your ruler that’s making backwards mayhem in the sky. This month sees Venus, ruler of our love life and bank account, take a rare moonwalk backwards across the heavens. Unlike Mercury, Venus rarely retrogrades. We only experience this once approximately every 20 months. So, Venus retrogrades can feel a little unfamiliar. Just like a Mercury retro however, Venus retrogrades have their own set of rules. Generally, this is not a good time to begin a new love affair or any kind of long term relationship. Neither is it the best time to take out new financial commitments such as credit cards or loans. Venus can lead us into extravagance and over-indulgence depending on the house it is transitting or the aspects it makes even when direct. When retrograde – even more so. And unfortunately, we can not only regret the amount we have spent, but also once Venus heads direct again, the purchase itself. Venus retrogrades are notorious for luring us with temptation. Consider yourself forewarned!
Venus retrogrades in a Mercury-ruled house in your chart – your 3rd. Because of this you may find the energy easier to deal with than most other signs. So, having looked at the downside, just what is Venus retrograde good for? In your 3rd it’s about infusing those ideas with fresh creativity, reaching back to past connections and updating them. It can also mark the return of business ventures and opportunities that boost your sense of self-worth and your bank account. Follow up on anything that has lapsed now – be it that client or that inner voice telling you to get back in contact with someone. This is your house of taking a chance and having faith in your ideas. Receive a boost as Mercury arrives in this, its ruling house on the 10th, enhancing your communication skills and handing you the ability to capture the imagination of others with what you say.
This month’s new Moon appears in your Venus-ruled 2nd on the 9th. It’s time to look at your values as well as your finances. Both are intrinsically linked. This new Moon can often bring in a new job or source of income. With Venus retrograde this could well spring from the past. Reconnect to that value system as this is your gold standard. Also, ensure you value yourself more and communicate this to others. People reflect back at us what they pick up about our beliefs around our ‘worth’ In other words – if you undervalue yourself, so will others. Examine your relationships – both professional and personal and take note of how you are being treated. The new Moon in here combined with the Venus retrograde allows you to realign your sense of self-worth if necessary. Hearing from a long term connection you have not spoken to for a while is also likely now as Mercury trines Neptune. This could even be a past lover or close friend. If so, there could be a new chapter ahead for you. Watch what returns as it resonates to your values.
Many of you could be looking at packing your suitcase or at least an overnight bag thanks to Mercury opposing Uranus in your 9th. It could be all a bit lastminutedotcom or unexpected so be ready and be spontaneous. You’ve some major restriction-busting aspects happening now. Break free of what holds you back including self-imposed limitations. Watch your thoughts for a ‘lack’ attitude as opposed to a gratitude one. If you focus too much on what you don’t have, rather than what you do, this is all you will continue to attract.
The Sun enters your 3rd on the 23rd and you now have an incredible line up of four planets in here – the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter. We are coming to the end of Jupiter’s time in here so you will not experience a line-up in here like this for another 12 years. It’s time to initiate, create and launch as many ideas, contacts and projects as you can now. Make expansion your mantra. Make travel plans, launch and pitch for that business or sign up for that course of study.
This month’s full Moon appears in Jupiter’s ruling 9th and makes freedom-inciting aspects especially to Uranus in here. This is your full Moon of release, of setting sail. Chart a course or look to what falls away at this time and allows you to break free of what holds you back. A big opportunity could be just around the corner – again, arising from the past as the Sun and Venus meet on the 26th and Mercury and Jupiter on the 29th. Cultivate your own personal message now, say it big, say it loud and walk your ‘brand’. Others want what you’re selling.
Halloween sees your ruler enters your 4th while Venus moves backwards into your 3rd. Venus in here gives you additional time to re-work those ideas or renegotiate deals if necessary. Mercury in your 4th asks you to take a little longer than usual when it comes to decisions that can impact on your home, living arrangements, career or long-term future. While Venus remains retrograde it’s all about taking your time for beautiful solutions. And take the time to let others know how you feel. Make October your sharing month, Virgo. Whether it’s your love, your feelings or those ideas.
In a nutshell: Time to share the love, ideas and feelings with others, Virgo. Make October a month of communication and sharing. The more you open up – the more others do is return.
It’s time for some serious lovin’ in 2018, Virgo. Saturn and Pluto sit in your 5th and the start of the year will see ruler Mercury meet both in here. Yes, Saturn can make heavy weather out of things. But the upside of this is you should now be able to recognise whether or not a lover has long term potential – or not. The benefits are far-reaching for you: no more time wasters. Saturn and Pluto are both in their own way, concerned with endings. So, you are likely to see anything which doesn’t have a future end very early on in the year new. Don’t despair and see this as a new beginning rather than an end. There’s a massive transformation occurring in the far reaches of your soul now. And it relates to the love you have and the love you show in return. Your creativity is also in focus so expect a renewed commitment to that and anything that makes your soul dance and life sparkle.
This is the year of the crazy retrograde. Now, being Mercury ruled you are used to the madness that can rule when your ruler appears to move backwards in the sky. Get ready for even more mayhem than usual this 2018 however. During the July/August period at one point we will experience a total of six planets retrograde all at the same time. Yes, your ruler will be one of them, heading backwards through your house of the past and secrets. But we will also see Mars making a rare retrograde through your 6th and that back into your 5th during this time. Jupiter will head backwards in your 3rd, Saturn and Pluto will retrograde in your 5th, Neptune will retrograde in your partnership zone and Uranus having moved out of your 8th and on into your 9th from May 15 will also head retrograde from the second week of August.
You may feel like you are going over old ground once more in so many areas. This may include partners and your closest friends. You may find it difficult to express your feelings or else just feel others are not making any effort to see things from your perspective. If you are not careful, frustrations can result in arguments and also things getting blown out of all proportion. Look back over the past seven years because Uranus in your 8th of fears and intimacy should have left you with a new way of dealing with those deep seated issues. Especially those between you and those closest to you. With Neptune still in your relationship zone, you can access a different approach now and come from a place of compassion – perhaps for yourself. You are only human after all!
Just bear in mind with outer planet retrogrades, that these tend to increase rather than decrease the planet’s influence. Unlike Mercury retrogrades where everything just goes haywire! Uranus in your 9th retrograde can have you wanting to escape and leave everything behind. Just be mindful of what you are running away from. That fantasy about being a beach bum may look appealing, until you have to pay the bills on the beach hut. However, Uranus in your 9th brings a fabulous, universal outlook, a desire to embrace new, perhaps even ‘radical’ ideas and for new experiences. You may find yourself getting involved with or even studying subjects you might have dismissed before now. Your mind is more open, more enquiring than it has been for a very long time. You may also be drawn to visit unusual places. Again, these may be destinations you would have had no desire to visit before. Now you want to get off the beaten track – or whatever that means for you, as the diverse and the unique call to you.
Departures from the ‘norm’ are where your success lies this year. A good philosophy is to look at what you have chosen in the past and what the results were from that. This rules everything from your wardrobe choices, to lovers, holiday destinations and career moves. If you’re happy with your results – fine. If not, this year is all about making that different choice and seeing if you get a
different outcome. Instead of saying: That’s not for me, Uranus in your 9th wants you to say ‘That IS for me!’. Try it and see.
Jupiter planet of luck, abundance and learning remains in your 3rd for most of the year. What are you learning? This is a Mercury ruled house in your chart so commerce, communication, writing, teaching and travel could feature. This is your house of your siblings if you have them and your neighbourhood. Getting more involved with your community is one aspect of Jupiter in here as is receiving benefits via siblings or neighbours. Above all however, Jupiter in here is all about seeing how far one idea can take you. This could be an idea for a blog, book, screenplay, website or business. Or it could be an idea that can be shared with others. It’s about having good game rather than just talking one. You need to bring it with Jupiter in here. From November onwards he’ll be making his annual shift – from your 3rd and in into your 4th of home, family, security and that sense of belonging. There could be benefits from women in your life – especially from your mother but women in general could prove to be very helpful now.
This is an excellent transit for moving house, for extending or improving your current home or for buying something expensive that you’ve wanted for it for some time. This is also an excellent transit for business dealings, for impressing superiors, for your public/professional image and for long term decisions. Family events and celebrations feature too – or perhaps the cause for celebrating is yours! 2019 could be the year when you bring it all together and 2018 gives you the means to pave the way for all of that.
