October 2018 Overview

October is universally a THREE month, emphasizing a new level of self-expression from our sense of awareness, understanding and commitment to “right action” choices. With Pluto turning retrograde on September 30th, setting the pace for October, situations will reveal element of the use of power in events in October that begin to transition our path from one direction to another. Venus turning retrograde on October 5th, shifts and changes issues dealing with love, money and well-being. Venus in Scorpio provides a transparency into our heart to see our true intentions and prepares for the shifts and changes needed to align with the commitment to “right action” choices. Mid-October Mercury connects with Venus retrograde, bringing in the transparency to reveal the commitment and responsibility of aligning the inner and outer values. By the 26th, Sun shines the light onto our true commitment and alignment with our values to bring the Full Moon perspective to see in the dark, our new pathway emerging from this perspective. As Jupiter spends the last few days in Scorpio, completing a year of expanding the views through transparency that began October 10th, 2017, Jupiter connects with Mercury.

With Venus retrograde in Scorpio, another series of adjustments occur from this incredible perspective.
