Venus in Virgo opposes Neptune Rx in Pisces (at 7 degrees) on October 16th. You want more under a Venus/Neptune opposition. There's a willingness to throw yourself under someone's spell. Add in Virgo, and you can find yourself drowning in sacrifice or neurotic worries. When Neptune dissolves boundaries (and Virgo's logic) Venus opens herself up to some crazy, intoxicating desires. Yes, paranoia can be just as tempting as blind romance. It all depends what flavour of Virgo is in your cup. Obviously, illusory worries are not the best use of this energy, but they are a potential to watch out for.
If romance isn't a thing, this opposition can expand financial or creative possibilities. But you have to be careful, especially if money is involved. You can forget all about a crucial Virgo detail in the Neptune wave of possibility. What you want suddenly seems tantalizingly near.
But is it?
This opposition is sandwiched between Mars in Virgo trine Pluto in Capricorn (on October 15th at 13 degrees) and Mars conjunct Jupiter (on October 17th at 14 degrees). Maybe the dream is closer than you think, if you get with the Mars in Virgo program; take appropriate action to make it happen. There's no excuse not to. Mars is powered up with the Jupiter/Pluto contacts, humming along like a finely-tuned machine.
The Venus/Neptune opposition recalls Mars opposite Neptune from October 6th. The difference is action (Mars) versus attraction (Venus). Neptune blends more easily with Venus, because Venus is passive. She's more comfortable with Neptune's gentle dissolution, while Mars' assertion is undermined.
If you want to look at this as a story that began around October 6th, the Mars/Neptune opposition was an initial heads up, in the guise of confused or idealistic efforts. Now you've found your footing, and know exactly what you can do (Mars) to make *it* happen (since Mars is empowered with Jupiter/Pluto). But the opportunity or illusion that Neptune presented hasn't gone away...Venus is triggering it, and this time you approach it from the angle of want/attraction, rather than pursuit/giving up.
Whether it's real or fake is almost beside the point. Mars, Jupiter and Pluto are urging you to aim higher. If the Neptune opposition ends up being a red herring, you can still power ahead in a different direction. The point is that you do something. Let Neptune inspire you with a glimpse of what else is out there. Whether you're disappointed or uplifted, at least you have a sense that you want more. If it works out, great. If it doesn't, look elsewhere but keep pushing forward. If you find yourself getting sidetracked by worries, do something that puts you back in control.
