Love-inducing Venus slinks into sultry Scorpio this month and, voila, here’s your love horoscope for October with all that you need to know!
Venus is about relationships, and is sociable, friendly, and affectionate. Scorpio is about passion, and likes to dive headfirst into love. This means we’ll crave meaningful and intense experiences when Venus is in Scorpio. Depth and intimacy become more important, urging us to trade in frivolous flings for long-lasting romance. Love can border on obsessive when Venus is in this sign, compelling us to go all-in when it comes to matters of the heart.
Venus in Scorpio is a time when we’ll want to shine a light on the shadows of our relationships. Those nagging thoughts that we’ve been pushing aside to make peace? Well, they become impossible to ignore when Venus and Scorpio get together. It’s a time to go beneath the surface, find the truth, and hold it up to the light of day.
Venus goes into Scorpio on October 8th or 9th, depending on where you are in the world. Here’s how your love life will be affected this October:
Stifled emotions threaten to bubble up, dear Aries, or those carefully chosen words bubble to your lips in the hope they’ll be kissed. To you, taking the sensual approach is another way of saying apply the brakes, which you hate doing, but you might have no option now that Venus’s moving to a deep down and sticky place in your horoscope for a lengthy stay. Strong feelings can stir despite not having known the person very long, and not the syrupy variety btw, because we’re talking scarily strong here.
Physically, there’s potential to enjoy way more intimate moments with your partner. Emotionally, you have even more fiery passion and a need to increase the intimacy in your relationships. The closer you get to your partner, the happier you are! After this Venus phase is over, you might find that your relationship has undergone a transformation of sorts.
Always the bridesmaid, dear Taurus? Venus’ triumphant move into your opposite sign might thrust you right out front if you do find yourself walking down an aisle in the next 12 months. This planet doesn’t let the grass grow! Being single can be tough, but you’re patient enough to wait for the real deal, and there are brownie points available for not trying to convince yourself that every single flirtation or dalliance must necessarily stamp ‘permanent’ or ‘The One’ on your heart.
Scorpio is one of the best signs that Venus can be in for you. All kinds of relationships will take on a more pleasant aspect–there’s an inclination towards cooperation and more ease in expressing affection. In regards to the relationships with open enemies, this could be the time to make nice with someone you’ve been beefing with! New relationships aren’t the focus now; already-established relationships and friendships blossom and grow most.
Looking up from your feet, a magazine, or your phone at the doctor’s office, you might meet the gaze of someone who takes your mind off your ailments. The moral of the story being you need to pay attention to what’s going on all around you, dear Gemini. Attention from a work colleague, however, either gives you butterflies or a queasy feeling. In other news, finding yourself suddenly attracted to someone you’ve known for ages is like waking up from a long sleep.
While Venus is related to pleasure, this is actually a period of time where fun and games are put on hold. Socializing at work goes very well, however, and you’re able to enjoy a better understanding of the dynamics in your office. You want to spend time being productive, and Venus here is good for increasing your income.
Venus in Scorpio is actually less of an emotionally-intense affair for you. The amplified feelings in your relationships are something you can work with by fully expressing your emotions with others (without encroaching on their boundaries). Your individuality and very sensitive nature are recognized and celebrated. You have more leisure time and fun with others, feel a stronger sense of creativity, and enjoy some very romantic nights out.
Venus moves into a part of your horoscope that means you could be slurping on punch with someone you can confidently call your own by Christmas, if you play your cards away from your chest, dear Leo. The part of the chart from where Venus calls also urges you to look back into your past for lessons from big dating disasters that you may have tried to blank out. It’s important that mom approves, or would’ve approved, of your choice of mate. You could meet someone interested in starting a family.
Overall, it’s a generally pleasant period where you can enjoy the company of whoever might share a living space with you–a partner, your roommates, or your family. Beautifying your room or your home can bring you a lot of pleasure right now, and you’re fine just staying in and being with your closest loved ones.
A quick-off-the-draw person reflects your own mercurial qualities right back at you and might or may not be your idea of heaven, depending on whether you can’t get a word in edgeways, or by using a greasy shoehorn. What’s on the grapevine appears to make those grapes even juicier, dear Virgo, but it doesn’t take long for it to sour once you do your own research. Those with quirky personalities are a great deal hotter to you than good looks alone.
You aren’t exactly a social butterfly, but you’re hanging out and talking more to your buddies than usual. You can especially pick up on just how much love they all have for you, which feels great!
Confidence, we’re told, is the single biggest most attractive characteristic and it might be that someone’s on a mission to prove this to you this month if you’ve been a doubting Thomas on this one, dear Libra. A person’s material assets might swing it over their other assets, or lack of, or someone who doesn’t have two cents to rub together.
Although Venus has left your sign, Venus in Scorpio can potentially be just as good for you. Venus rules finances, and that aspect of the planet of pleasure is more prominent now. Money can find its way into your pocket more easily, and you’re interested in more material possessions.
Venus slinking into your sign makes you want to slip into something more comfortable one minute, whetting your appetite for a challenge the next. Perching out the way and waiting love to come to you yields little by way of results because you need to make your own luck even with Venus’s backing, dear Scorpio. Now’s the time to drag and drop an on-off lover who’s been dining out on your insecurities, or you, to the trash!
Others are naturally more drawn to you, and your powers of seduction are through the roof! The soft, gentle side of Venus helps you relax your intense demeanor and connect with others more easily. While other signs are less social and outgoing during this time, you find it easier to befriend people and form strong new bonds.
Yeah, yeah, sure, sure is what you might think if we say that that the move of y Venus is gonna mean that for you in the next 12 months love’s gonna move in mysterious ways. Sounds like we’re fobbing you off or dressing up the fact that nothing of any interest is gonna happen. That’s because it also make you slightly cynical. The sky might also make you a bit solitary, and loud mouths and loud clothes are a turn off. This is also a time when you might investigate spiritual matters.
Relationships take on a one-sided aspect for the next few weeks, and you find yourself taking care of others’ needs while yours may be a little neglected. You’re denied of any immediate satisfaction in your relationships, other than the good feeling you get from helping others. Any relationship issues–even the tiny, unspoken ones–might boil over, too.
You and a puddle of goo have less in common because you’re no sucker for a gorgeous face and won’t melt around the kind of charm that could cheer up a slipped disc. Venus in Scorpio casts you as the formidable one, the contrary one. There’s no better motivation, therefore, than being told that someone’s out of your league, dear Capricorn. You know you’ve got it, so use it or lose it. You’re not normally big on shock value but all those who doubted you are in for a hell of one if the mood takes you.
Venus in Scorpio activates your chart’s zone of group activity and socializing, and it’s the perfect time to take a deep look into your social circle. You can unearth some ugly truths about someone, and cut them out of your life, or you can develop a deeper connection with your friend and take the relationship to the next level.
Venus carries with it a few reminders of what you don’t want, i.e. a controlling, career or status-obsessed person, but, and as baffling as this is, this might be what you attract into your topsy-turvy little world, dear Aquarius. Unbuttoned ‘ah, to hell with it’ types get on your nerves in the time it takes to boil an egg.
Opportunities for growth within your profession can present themselves, and since Venus rules over money as well as relationships, you might get a pay raise if you play your cards right over the next few weeks!
Will it be a case of the right place at the wrong time or the wrong place at the right time? You enjoy handing yourself over to fate, dear Pisces, but Venus’s move into your sister sign, Scorpio, makes you more philosophical. It also helps you filter out those that fail to engage your brain on at least some level even if they have a tiny hold on your heart. Your open mindedness may even surprise you and you might be prepared to travel further for that old devil called love. You know you shouldn’t get carried away, but you can’t reason with feelings anymore than you can an avalanche.
Venus in Scorpio brings a mind-expanding quality to anything Venusian you encounter over the next few weeks—art, money, music, and relationships of all kinds have the potential to instigate substantial personal growth. A trip to a faraway location would do you a lot of good now, and you can find a ton of pleasure and knowledge through the culture you experience.
