Loving Libra launches the month with a romantic flair. However, Saturn in Libra adds a touch of reality by emphasizing equality, compromise and commitment. Scorpio starts to take over after October 8, which intensifies sexual encounters and intellectual pursuits.
Venus transiting through sexy Scorpio from October 8 through November 1 casts a sultry aura over relationships. The planet of love in the sign of sex can also bring up issues about jealousy, power, compulsiveness, secrecy or money.
Mercury enters Scorpio on October 13, and then teams up with Venus from October 24-27. This pairing can inspire some profound—or profoundly naughty—discussions. It can also heighten the psychic link between lovers.
Mars in Leo throughout the month favors daring and creative approaches to whatever you’re trying to accomplish. This fiery influence can bring out your lusty side, but watch out for willfulness when it collides with Mercury and Venus toward the end of the month.
Planets in Motion
Continuing their retrograde travels are Neptune (through the 8th of November) and Jupiter (through December 24), which can hinder the expansion of new projects and cause some confusion about your overall direction.
