Bed, Healing, Imagining future retreats, and elevating your lifestyle in tears and in private, all good for September. But October is for re-uniting with your tribe and having fun. Real time with friends and loved ones is priceless. People you loved in the past also – unbelievably – reappear in the present. Time to make it right? Amazingly, you can. Even with those you thought you’d never see again. (And some of you spent a LOT of time thinking over these years!)
October 5, your ruler Venus retrogrades at 10 degrees Scorpio, and PLANS CHANGE. Venus retrogrades for 40 days and 40 nights (oh, the temptation) until November 16 when she goes direct at 25 degrees Libra. Your very body is transforming and you look different by November 16. You’ll be pared down and more relaxed. Fantastic celebration then on November 15…
Every 8 years, your ruler Venus goes back to the same area of your chart, so each Venus retrograde is a repeat of the Venus retrograde which occurred 8 years ago, 16 years ago, 24 years ago, and so on. So think back to the period between October 8, 2010 and November 18, 2010. What was going on then? Therein lies your clue. Nancy Drew!
From here on in, life should be much more FUN.
Pluto goes direct September 30 in your fourth house of home and family, and after September’s over is when the changes hit. As always there are conflicting layers. October brings you a spotlight and makes you the star – you get to celebrate your birthday! – but you’ve also been through an incredibly difficult time of it. Your own turmoil can make it impossible to think clearly. Such anguish about imagined scenarios. Home is your safe place but I see you still need protection. Erect healthy boundaries and demand considerate treatment. Please.
Pluto direct brings down oppressive rules.
So which oppressive rules do YOU want to bring down?
October 5, Venus retrograde comes as a loaded blessing. Spending slows. Of money AND of your energy and control. All have been oppressive rules, I’d say. Your planet’s exhausted – haven’t you felt it? Venus wants a break to reassess, and so do you. October 5 – November 16 you take stock of your life. These (biblical) 40 days will be invaluable and save you years down the road.
Getting the traditional Venus retrograde dos and dont’s out of the way! October 5 – November 16: No luxury purchases, no dramatic changes of appearance (no cosmetic procedures, no full “makeovers”), and no impulsive relationship decisions. DOS: value yourself to the NTH degree, as you are, right this very minute reading this. How incredible are you?
Venus Retrograde between your first and second houses, linking self-value with money – if I spend more, will I be better? – and that’s it. No more an addict to consumerism. All it does is leave you with less money. You are perfect, you are beautiful just as you are.
Luxuries bought during these 40 days and nights of Venus’ Temptation will bring about extreme buyer’s remorse. (YES, I’m threatening you – I mean, warning you! And yes, even though it’s your Birthday!)
I advise around the new Libra Moon Monday, October 8 you protect yourself. Don’t take risks. Don’t indulge in arguments, extreme behavior. Stay away from excessive drinking and the such, and act as boringly appropriate as it is possible for you to do. Stay reasonable, sane, and positive, even if just going through the motions. The motions will protect you.
This is a rather tense new Moon, so be aware that your stress and anxiety will make this bigger than it is. Fears about your health have you on constant tender hooks.
Let me reassure you: you receive good news concerning your health. And there will be incredible release and relief. You’re supported by others and the universe’s help more than you realize.
A necessary end to a relationship will also be better than you imagine. It has been a long time coming and you invested – it felt like – everything. This retrograde cycle also brings financial challenges, or delays the ripeness of the moment in more private or intimate matters. That’s okay. Walk away when you need to. Don’t push things that are not coming naturally.
Repair work and bank arrangements may eat up more time and money. Social, educational, or travel plans may need to be rescheduled; tests may need to be taken again. Past problems, debts, unresolved feelings, a past lover or competitor can resurface too. But with ALL you receive your due justice and it will be immensely satisfying.
We have missed you and will celebrate your return. The light is upon you as it’s going on in your lovely sign of Libra and in your first house.
In your first house, traditionally ruled by confident Aries, you have:
The awesome, life-giving Sun
Brilliant thought planet Mercury
Nurturing mama asteroid Ceres
A challenging new Libra Moon on Monday, October 8
And your first house rules:
You in the world
How others perceive you
Your disposition with others
Being your true self with others
Hope and moving forward
You will feel more like you than you have in a long time. An ancient EX comes into the picture. As well as other old associations. They help bring back old parts of you. It will do you good!
Saturn slammed you with some hard lessons – and you learned them. Man, did you ever learn them.
You end October feeling better about yourself than you have in years. You accept that you are leaving a huge cycle of loss behind.
You are also close to signing a contract that will change your life for the better. It brings much increased prosperity and security! Try to wrap this up soon.
Make sure you work on this contract with others and not go on your lonesome. In other words, get a second opinion on the contract. Have a lawyer or appropriate expert look it over.
And put the main emphasis on relationships within the contract.
You gain the most this year through things you cannot control, through surrender, and through supportive forces you may not be able to name.
The fun part is feeling as if a forgotten part of you has agreed to come out into the world to play. Hallelujah! It’s been a long time, too long a time, that you have felt parts of yourself buried.
A lot of mourning for what has gone and will not come again. It sounds sad but it doesn’t have to be. It opens new doors and allows you to step through them. You will be liberated and empowered.
You are back in the saddle concerning your life and how you can make it yours.
Are you ready to commit to a new way of living with yourself and to a new way of being out there in the world too? The time is ripe to unyoke yourself, to break free of the old and outworn, and to implement new strategies for success. When you consciously step forward and apply yourself to your greater good.
And finally, finally for those Librans who just do NOT want to be alone – even though I maintain you still need quality retreat time – this is for you.
The one whose feelings you could not be sure of – and this was torture to you – will now make them crystal clear. Remember: When you come through for someone close to you, the rewards come back to you tenfold. A past wrong will be righted. You may have waited years for this.
And finally justice, Libra. Then as October ends you are very close to signing a contract that will change your life for the better.
Is it time for your very own session?
I look forward to speaking with YOU, beautiful Libra.
With love, Madalyn
