When Venus turns retrograde on October 5, it’s time to reassess and reevaluate. Since Venus is associated with love and money, these are great places to start. Are your love life and financial situation as healthy as they could be? Explore your options. The new moon in your sign on the eighth urges you to start something new, especially a friendship. Exchange contact info with people who share your interests. The full moon in Taurus on October 24 is a time of completion, helping you bring things to their natural conclusion. It’s hard to let go of a close relationship or investment, but it’s also important to acknowledge that not everything is meant to last forever. Most things have an expiration date. A Venus-Saturn sextile that same day is a good reminder that patience and perseverance pay off, but so does a good work ethic. Don’t sit back and wait for things to happen, Libra. Hard work ensures a valuable payoff. Venus enters your sign on the thirty-first, so you’re very willing to accommodate other people’s wishes and compromise to keep the peace. What about your needs, though? Don’t forget about those.

September is a wise teacher. Caution and moderation are the lessons when Saturn goes direct on September 6, and you might have to slow down your pace to pay attention to the details. Taking more time to finish things is preferred over rushing and missing something important. Venus enters intense Scorpio on the ninth, at which point you won’t be satisfied with the trivial. You’re searching for a deep and real connection with others, but at the same time you have a hard time putting your faith in them blindly. You might have to keep your guard up until new people prove that you can trust them. If you’re feeling scattered around September 13, you can blame it on the confusing opposition between Mercury and Neptune retrograde. Distractions prevent you from giving things your full attention, so don’t make any final decisions midmonth. Chatty Mercury moves into your sign on the twenty-first, putting you in an excellent position to talk your way into (or out of) anything. Your negotiating skills are on point, Libra, so use them to get something you really want. You’re feeling strong and courageous during the sun-Mars trine on September 27, which is the perfect way to end the month. Once you get the ball rolling on key projects, you should be able to rely on others to pick it up and run with it.

Your home planet of Venus enters your lovely sign on August 6, so your love life should be in full bloom. You appreciate beauty in all its forms, and you’re a gentle and charming lover. You’re also very willing to let others get their way - but compromise is better than complete surrender. A Venus-Mars retrograde trine occurs on the seventh, which puts you in a creative flow. You have a lot of great ideas that you’ll want to implement, and while many of them will probably work, try not to force the issue when they don’t. There’s plenty of time to go back to the drawing board. Mars in retrograde enters strict Capricorn on August 12, delivering a persistent, sometimes stubborn energy. Again, you run into the theme of pushing too hard when you get resistance from the other side, which doesn’t really work with Mars retrograde. You’d love to have things your way, but collaboration is a better idea than ditching a project altogether. You get praise for a job well done during the sun-Uranus trine on August 25, but don’t get too comfortable. Smile through a standing ovation, but don’t forget that there’s still more work to be done after the curtain closes and everyone else goes home.

As romantic Venus enters detail-oriented Virgo on July 9, you have very particular wants and needs when it comes to love, but you’ll have to be careful not to be overly critical. No one likes to feel as though they’re being evaluated 24/7. The harmonious Venus-Uranus trine on the eleventh turns your attention toward anything unique and different, and you’ll want to try all kinds of new things in relation to love and finances. Expect the unexpected during this transit, and don’t be afraid to branch out into new and unexplored areas! A resourceful trine between Venus and Saturn retrograde on July 14 is ideal for going after bargains because you’ll have a great eye for quality and an excellent head for business. If you buy anything on credit, be sure that you understand the terms. The Venus-Neptune opposition on the twenty-fourth could make you more gullible than usual, which could land you in some embarrassing situations. How you look to others isn’t the most crucial thing to you, but you’d rather not come across as an easy mark either.
