Your Monthly Horoscopes
To get the best out of your monthly horoscope, use the horoscope maker to find your rising sign and sun sign decan. October horoscopes are OUT NOW and feature a special Venus retrograde report for its effect in your sign.
In the October Forecast I look at Uranus in Taurus, the Uranus fixed T-square with the Nodes that gets triggered all month and what Venus retrograde means for all starsigns in the monthly horoscopes.
The recurrent aspect for the October astrology forecast is the fixed Uranus T-square. This comprises of Sun, Mercury and finally Venus opposing Uranus which is square the Moon’s nodes all month. Themes of Uranus in Taurus will be triggered by the personal planets one by one (Dates in the aspect list at the bottom of this post). I talk about this in the YouTube video above.
October brings us the start of the passionate Venus retrograde in Libra/Scorpio which is mostly easy to deal with. A third person could enter a relationship which ignites a rebalancing between the couple. This season’s themes are mainly about reviewing 2018 as we draw towards its close. This is because as Mars comes to the end of its shadow period, Venus will start her retrograde the very next day.
Venus Retrograde from October 6 to November 16 ~ 25º Libra to 10º Scorpio. Check out the link for the full Venus retrograde report. Venus loves being in this last decan of Libra and is very harmonious and graceful here. It will ooze charm but in a way that is not too sickly sweet. Because this position is so balanced, it will never lay things on too thick. Those touched by this Venus retrograde will know exactly when to pull back when they are trying to seduce someone or land a deal. Venus here will act as a giant magnet and draw people to itself. But it will start its journey in Scorpio where it is not so powerful.
Venus will still pass through the constellations of Libra, however, so relationships will have a chance to recalibrate themselves. There are some danger points when Venus passes over 15º Scorpio and the star Zuben Elgenubi “Bad for marriage, sudden and secret death, may be poisoned owing to the jealousy of one of own sex.” Eeek!, which is the Libra scale of loss. But all is well when Venus passes over 17º Scorpio and the star Zubenelscemali the scale of gain. “Social success, help from women, favourable for love affairs and marriage.”
