Venus just entered the sign of Scorpio yesterday, dear Cancer, where it will transit for longer than its usual four weeks – until the end of October.

This is divine energy for enjoying yourself and increasing popularity. You have a stronger sense of the dramatic, and you’re more inclined to throw yourself into activities you love.

It’s a creative and romantic time of year! Venus will turn retrograde in early October in this sector of your chart, and what you’re taking on in the coming weeks may need a second look later.

Mars also changes signs today and is entering a less playful, more intimate part of your chart, visiting there until November 15th. This encourages an inward focus, in contrast, and puts you in an unusually good position to observe and strategize your next moves.

Today, however, Mars gets off to a bumpy start, and you can have a hard time knowing where to put your energies. It won’t be long before you know exactly what you want to do.

Your family nestles itself firmly somewhere between your recent growing desire to flex your creative muscles and your mental overstimulation.

A current or former partner wants something from you, which prompts you to take a sober look at how you are balancing everything. If you are aggravated by their insistence, you will soon be able to offer up a valid defense of your position.

Your expertise is always in finding a sideways approach when someone tries to face you head on. There are many roads to resolution and peace.

Just 29 days after Mars retrograded back out of your financial sector, he returns today to find the conditions have changed dramatically.

Mars returns to once again fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit, but this time without any planetary activity in your income sector to act as competition.

With income momentum safely banked, this time there will be less financial tension and a greater chance to take your financial power back.
