Your Aries monthly horoscope for October 2018 suggests that you will be greatly receptive to counseling. This could be for help in your intimate relationship or simply for problem-solving. Conflict with others prompts you to seek an objective, outside opinion. For some, this can be a time of competition and rivalry which actually helps to show who you work best with while allowing you to dispense with those with whom you are not so compatible. This re-evaluation of relationships lasts until October 23 after which you will retire further down into the underworld of your psyche to see why you attracted certain people into your life in the first place. What is the mirror telling you?
Aries October Horoscope 2018
The Full Moon September 25 2018 ( The effect lasts until October 9) is in your own sign, which makes you extremely emotional for the next two weeks. Don’t be surprised if you burst into tears at the drop of a hat. If you are a manly type you can just say you’re really in touch with your feminine side… seriously you will feel pretty mushy. Don’t worry though, it won’t last so just wallow in it and let it be cleansing. So really this is quite a good time to purge yourself of any internal rage and turmoil. There’s is absolutely no point trying to keep a lid on it and get all Buddhist with your unfulfilled desires.
VENUS RETROGRADE FOR ARIES ~ OCTOBER 6 to NOVEMBER 16
Venus in this underworld zone of your chart could manifest a ‘Dark Cupid’ relationship. Much depends on how Venus is configured in your natal chart and how much you are already a beacon for one of these dragons. You will certainly confront your shadow, but you have a choice as to whether you let it pull you down into the rabbit hole or not. In this netherworld, you can be so easily hoodwinked and will have to rely totally on intuition. Keep those antenna sharp and feet grounded.
A good knowledge about psychology will serve you well and give you an opportunity to study your own psyche. What appears at this time will mirror back to you any toxins buried deep inside. If you are fairly clear energetically then this won’t be such an intense encounter. Whatever happens, any sexual experiences will serve as a catalyst for deep transformation and inner purging. It can feel like you have been bitten by a vampire, injected by an addictive poison. Your body will then have to work hard to detox from this encounter and provoke a healing crisis.
During the first half of Venus retrograde from October 6 to 26, Venus is in her more benign phase which makes dragon slaying easier and will-power strong. From November 1, Venus retrograde can revive an old flame! For some, the love affair could just be a fit of nostalgia that ends once Venus turns direct, but for others, it could actually turn out to be a lasting, second chance at love. You are both single at the same time finally, so…voila! In other partnerships, you might meet an old client or friend with whom you sign a contract for a long-term deal. The Venus influence is even more auspicious if the collaboration involves the arts or a beauty/fashion related business. You might make all the preparations while Venus is retro and seal the deal when she goes direct. During the second half of the Venus retrograde from November 1 to 16, Lucifer Venus will play the seductress, try not to abuse your vamp power!
Aries October Horoscope ~ Career
Mercury in house 8 (October 10 to 30) This could be a great period if your work happens to involve psychology, as this is a time for deep thinking and mind-probing. Communications at work cannot be taken at face value and it seems like everyone has some Machiavellian scheme behind their moves. It can be quite a difficult period where you see the dark shadow of your own psyche projected onto the co-workers who rile you up the most. You could well feel burnt out from overdoing the socialising at work. Take this quiet time to retreat from the madness and be a bit more retrospective. If you have felt quite shy of all the attention it could be that you need to examine why your confidence is not as high as it should be despite your being totally capable and talented. It is time to examine what unconscious drives are holding you back.
