October 5, appointments are disrupted by your planet Venus going retrograde, but it’s a blessing in disguise. Finances are protected by a prior contract, and you see you’re protected at just the right time. A startling vision reveals a family member’s secrets through your most psychic house. You like to plan, so this is not your favorite type of “event” but go with it, Taurus, and you do awesomely.
You’re the most solid rock of patience that exists in your family. And you’re being called upon to give more, to bear the burden of your home, to see your day-to-day changed irrevocably, and to remain calm. And you’re doing a fantastic job. Even though you seem to be sitting on top of a volcano, your emotions – and the past – battling what you must do! Not all is what it appeared, is it? Hang in for a tad longer.
This same day, October 5, sweet ruler Venus retrogrades at 10 degrees Scorpio, and negotiations with faraway partners slow down. Venus retrogrades for 40 days (of temptation!) until November 16 when she goes direct at 25 degrees Libra. Your relationships are changing and while you’re looking at it, your social role seems to be changing too.
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 that occurred 8 years ago (and 16 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.
While the riot in your unconscious is set to explode, you find yourself thinking of things you thought were long gone. For you are entering a new life — and with new life, comes old death — and Taurus likes security! Not change and transformation!
But what if I told you, this was the best change and transformation you could imagine?
Pluto direct in Capricorn (hierarchy) brings down oppressive rules.
So which oppressive rule do YOU want to bring down?
Maybe not now for this time is difficult. But BRILLIANT in terms of future productivity.
The unexpected thrusts you on an alternate course and tests your ability to find creative solutions. On a positive note, this planetary combination sharpens your intuitive skill and triggers creative genius. Enlightened by surprise and quite simply inspired, you experience an awakening of unbelievable magnitude. Jupiter prompts you to consider the bigger picture; it’s time to raise intention up to the higher vision and the greater good, for self and for all.
Today brings high expectations and tomorrow will bring even higher risks. The only real certainty to bank on is that the future is changing more rapidly than ever. Individually and collectively, your challenge lies in keeping up with it all. People will reappear, whether in actuality or through memory.
After such intense support, doubt is now cast on certain relationships as figures from the past materialize and you have a chance to bring the magic back in – or not. Pluto goes direct September 30 in your ninth house covering law and education and – BOOM! – you’re ready to bust out, leave your obligations behind, fly away. The solution? Hire a substitute for yourself.
With everything lined up in your sixth house of works and plans —
Our awesome, life-giving Sun
Brilliant thought planet Mercury
Nurturing mama asteroid Ceres
A challenging new Libra Moon on Monday, October 8
— You have more to do there than you know how.
For your sixth house rules:
Service to others
Domestic and pet obligations
Work, work, work
Finding yourself an assistant (to do 20% of your work)
Your health and how you eat
Mutual respect among your professional colleagues
All your work relationships, including
Relating to those in lesser positions than you
So I know this has not been an easy time for you.
You will turn everything in your direction — by allowing others their own direction. It is the hardest thing, sometimes. But, particularly with partners, this is how it will work.
A contract signed during this time will last forever — or for a very, very long time. So decide how you feel about that.
At least, you need more facts before you proceed.
And that’s exactly what you’re unearthing right now. Especially when it comes to a certain individual.
You make important decisions regarding your relationships this October. You will weed out that which is negative, and fill it with positive.
Remember that Confucius was Taurus Jupiter (born September 28 under your sister sun sign of Libra, in 551 BC), so use Confucius-style wisdom and patience and compassion!
Practically speaking, at the same time, with so much going on in your sixth house at the moment you have so much to do.
And in the meantime, you are going to be blessed by love. Madly in love by the end of the month.
That doesn’t sound too bad, does it, for this month of October?
Pressurized choices! As Taurus Yogi Berra said, “It ain’t over till it’s over.” So hang in there. Secrets are revealed and details become clear and you’ll be glad you didn’t take the short cut route. (Which rarely works anyway.) October turns out to be the month you KNOW. Really, really know the path you are going to take. And with whom. This knowledge will come dramatically. Whether you are surprised, or have expected it all along, everything changes for you, and positively.
On a more purely romantic note, a relationship or relationship need then comes into greater focus as October gets underway. While it is nice to know you can rely on someone, make certain proper boundaries stay in place. V
At the same time you will be ready to consider a more formal commitment in terms of a financial arrangement, relationship-wise. (Right now you have no bloody idea! That’s okay, as I said. You will know soon enough.) You will engage in more serious planning for your financial future, which relieves you. Care taking responsibilities of children, parents, or pets will feature prominently too.
October is brilliant for stepping into a leadership or mentoring role, and to move your personal skills and talents to a (more) professional level. More attention and respect is both possible and the right goal to shoot for. While you can make excellent progress now, don’t take anything for granted. Things may not be as solid as they appear. If you are where you should be, this retrograde cycle will simply help you to work out the kinks. If you are not in the right place, you will certainly get the message!
WHILE you’re being hit with changes and challenges you may find yourself thinking of things you thought were long gone – that are still possible for you!
Is it time for your very own session?
I look forward to speaking with YOU, gorgeous Taurus.
With love, Madalyn
