Venus, the Goddess of Love, rules the New Moon in Libra, on October 12, and the Full Moon in Taurus, on October 27. What are you most attracted to? What makes you feel loved? How do you show your love to others? What helps you to relax and enjoy life? What possessions and values are most important to you?
These are questions that Venus encourages us to reflect upon, this month. As author Starhawk promotes, “…Connect with Her [the Goddess] through the moon, the stars, the ocean, the earth, through the trees, through other human beings, through ourselves. She is here. She is within us all.”
Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…You’ve probably been reflecting on a particular relationship, most likely a work one. Perhaps you’ve been feeling like a victim, or maybe you’ve been feeling the need to protect another. At the New Moon, it will be time to take immediate action. Put your ideals into practice. Channel your frustrations constructively.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…Have you been feeling the need to reorganize your daily routine? Use the energy of the New Moon to balance your life. The key is to change your belief system. It’s okay to be self-indulgent, and to play. If you’ve been too focused on others, do something creative. It’ll take the pressure off of your relationships.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)…Perhaps you’ve been experiencing writer’s block, or an inability to express yourself. Well, that’s okay. Your creative project has needed time to ferment. In the last half of October, however, you will experience an eruption of what’s been brewing beneath the surface, and your creative juices will begin to flow, again.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)…It’s time to take a walk down memory lane, and reconnect with your roots. Childhood issues may resurface at this time. Perhaps your relationship with a parent is tense, and you need emotional independence. Make peace with your past. Listen to your gut, and develop an inner sense of security. Seek Soul companions.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…This is a good time to work on your communication skills, and strengthen your relationships with your co-workers or employees, or even a sibling. Make sure you understand another’s point of view. You’re likely to have an eye-opening experience. At the Full Moon, all eyes will be on you, so lead with integrity.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Chances are you’ve been thinking a lot about money, lately, about what you can do to feel more secure, financially. This month, you are likely to find ways to increase your income, so have faith. You also could experience unexpected happenings around money, so do not gamble. Instead, do inexpensive things that allow you to experience financial freedom.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…It’s time to reinvent yourself within your relationships. Relationships are about give and take. You need to balance your partner’s needs and comfort levels with what makes you feel comfortable and secure. If you’re feeling limited within a relationship, this is the time to let go of it. Now is the time to be brave.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…Take time to be in solitude, this month. You are moving towards a new way to approach your work and daily routines, and need to do some Soul-searching. Only you can decide what comes next. Let go, and trust that you can make the right decision. Find some emotional peace of mind. Pay attention to your dreams and imagination!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…The more willing you are to put yourself in the limelight this month, the more positive the rewards, including a possible promotion and, therefore, increase in income. This is a favorable period for professional schmoozing. If you’re feeling annoyed with a colleague, improve the situation by giving the individual a beautiful gift. Remember your loved ones at home, too.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan.19)…What would you like to achieve? If you don’t know where you’re headed, you could make a wrong turn. The beginning of the month is a good time to set goals for your career and self-mastery, but it’s not necessarily a time to implement them. Have FUN at the Full Moon! Do something self-expressive, like writing poetry or lyrics.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…Reexamine what you believe about the world, because your beliefs create your experience. More specifically, examine a belief that you may hold around money and codependency, perhaps with a sibling. A session with a hypnotherapist is likely to expand your perspective, and help you to settle a problem within your family.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…What do you value in a friendship? You’re in the process of aligning with a higher vibration of energy, and are very aware of and sensitive to those around you. Eliminate attachments that drain your energy, and deepen your level of intimacy with friends that support your emotional independence and spiritual growth.
