This October, we stand at the threshold of shifting worlds. The month begins with six planets in retrograde, three of which will station direct, and then two others will slip into retrograde as the month progresses. All of this coming and going will be accentuated by a fiery full moon in Aries and an emotional partial eclipse in Scorpio that will solidify themes from this past April and May. As Venus also makes her transition from the outward-radiating Morning Star to the inward-shining Evening Star, we are invited to embrace all of these changes with a massive dose of self-care. Hold tightly to any threads of hope or optimism so you can weave them into the new pattern that will emerge at the end of this month.
