LOVE & ROMANCE:
Love, actually? Venus is in fastidious Virgo and your seductive fifth house, raking in the romantic fall vibes from October 2 to 27. You’re ready to spruce up your style, pump up the passion and turn a few heads (yes, even in your mask, Taurus). Post some alluring pics on social media and have fun playing with new looks.

But take a moment, Bull: Do you have the energy for a hot pursuit? The other love planet, Mars, is making an extended trip through Aries and your twelfth house of rest and fantasy from June 27 to January 6. That’s already dialed down your natural vibrancy a bit or made you more introspective. And from September 9 to November 13, Mars is retrograde, which might make it trickier to get anything off the ground.

Mars in reverse in your twelfth house of hidden agendas could bring news out of the woodwork or the return of a tempting but toxic ex. You may feel unclear about which direction to take in love. When in doubt, wait it out. Nothing wrong with taking a bit of a break, diving into healing with therapy (couples or individual) or doing some serious self-inquiry work. This is a time to get in touch with who you really are and what your deepest needs are at a core level.

When Venus moves into Libra and your sixth house of good clean living from October 27 to November 27, self-care and soul-searching can bring your love life back onto more stable ground. Take things one day at a time and enjoy life’s simple pleasures with your partner. If you’re single, you could meet someone through healthy pursuits or through service work. Who says sparks can’t fly on a community-action Zoom committee call?

Some creaky skeletons could be buried in your closet—and at the October 31 Taurus full moon, which also conjuncts shock jock Uranus, they might pop out for an eye-opening Halloween epiphany. Do you have someone to forgive (yourself, maybe) or a piece of your past to resolve? Trick or treat indeed!

Key Dates:
October 10: Venus-Uranus trine
Anything goes under this electrifying alignment of your ruler, amorous Venus, and unpredictable Uranus in your sign. Single? A casual convo could quickly spark into seductively flirty banter, which could lead to…who knows? Attached? Cue up a sexy surprise for tonight!

MONEY & CAREER:
October is a busy month with lots of little details to take care of—and you’re ready to get organized! With the Sun in Libra and your efficient, analytical sixth house until October 22, a fall cleanup of all your systems will get you back on track. Do that work before Mercury, the planet of technology and communication, turns retrograde (backward) from October 13 to November 3. Mercury’s mischief could mess with your data and complicate contract negotiations. Try to sign on the dotted line BEFORE the retrograde.

Key Dates:
October 15: Sun-Pluto square
Just because you see something doesn’t mean you’re required to say something! In fact, under today’s slippery clash, it’s better to keep your observations to yourself. With manipulative Pluto pulling the strings, it could turn out that the person you go running to is the mastermind of the whole scenario. Take notes for (possible) future reference, but for now, keep them private.
