Venus has the final word as she turns retrograde in secretive Scorpio on October 5.
The Goddess of Love raises the stakes on the personal and political stage that began as Jupiter’s magnifying lens revealed (not so) hidden sexual politics when it entered Scorpio a year ago, setting the stage for the #metoo movement. The normally harmonious Libra New Moon on October 8 is square powerful Pluto and is accompanied by a contentious Venus-Mars square. The Taurus Full Moon on October 24 is conjunct irrepressible Uranus and opposed retrograde Venus. The planetary pile-up in passionate Scorpio, aspects to truth-seeking Uranus, and a Mercury-Jupiter conjunction the end of the month will reveal plenty of more shocking information. There is no escape from the current drama as the USA careens towards a significant midterm Election Day on November 6.
