October 2018 Highlights:
The last three months of the year will be quite intense; serving as a precursor to the energies coming up in 2019. We may feel as if we are trudging through mud or walking on a sticky floor during October. It may be hard to move forward but Pluto and Saturn did go direct in Capricorn last month, so we are gaining insight into how we can transform our lives in practical ways. The sextile or positive 60-degree angle between lucky Jupiter and transformative Pluto that has influenced us since last December is quite strong at the beginning of the month but will dissipate by mid-month. Lovely Venus only retrogrades every 18 months or so, during this transit she starts off in Scorpio and moves back into Libra. The last time Venus was retrograde in Scorpio and Libra was 96 years ago.

Mercury retrogrades November 16th, the same day Venus goes Direct. It is best to avoid making serious commitments regarding love or money until the shadow period after Venus' retrograde cycle ends on December 17th. This is quite a specific time in history as Venus in Scorpio opposes Uranus in Taurus and will surely bring some surprises. Retrogrades create internal times. Go with the flow but don't give in to unhealthy influences. This is a time for clearing stuck emotional patterns to lighten the load on your heart. Restructure your finances.
