While the week gets off to a mix of positive and challenging conditions, where there is pressure you will also find opportunity. If there is any pressure at the start of the week it the push back as you come up against one last communication barrier, with a small amount of effort allowing you to push through to enjoy the benefits on the other side. Those benefits include some major support between Venus, in her last full week in your communication sector and all three planets in your relationship sector. Meanwhile Mercury, in his first full week in retrograde motion in a playful part of your chart and Neptune, in retrograde motion in an adventurous part are both under pressure on Monday. This is more a chance to challenge old excuses and with Mars spending the rest of the year in your career sector a reminder that life can’t be all work and no play. You can have it all but only with the right balance.
What you want to see in any month, even more so than positive conditions is variety. When there is a lot going on there is less chance for things to become intense and if there are challenges in one part then this can be balanced by positive conditions in another part of your life. Fortunately, you have the best of both in that there is plenty of variety but also a lack of any real challenges. It was Venus’ departure from Cancer last month that not only brought all planetary activity and the launch of your new solar year to a close but took the pressure off the planets in your relationship sector. With Saturn and Jupiter in their first full month in direct motion in your relationship sector and Pluto turning direct here on 5th October, this is a chance to turn away from the personal and/or relationship tension of recent months. However, a drop in tension is one thing but Venus’ return to your communication sector from 3rd October to 28th October completely turns things around. The same planets that Venus was clashing with a month earlier she is now onside with and not only that, just as you move into the most important months of the year on the relationship front. As the planet of love, Venus is on hand to give your heart and your relationships a voice. This comes just as there are some exciting developments in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. While Mars’ retrograde turn in your career sector last month will keep him here for the rest of the year, in retrograde motion for the whole of October his hot headed enthusiasm has been replaced with cold headed determination. This allows you to pace yourself and in the process, find a better balance between work and play. For you not only start the month with Mercury in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart but Juno, the queen of commitment is spending her first full month here in four years.
