Venus moves into Virgo on October 3rd; details, improvements and clarity in financial/relationship matters are the focus. Venus' confusing opposition to Neptune in Pisces (on October 3rd) blurs the facts temporarily, but the truth should emerge after this date. Saturn's transit of Scorpio begins on October 5th and lasts until December, 2014. This will be a time of focusing on deeper matters like intimacy, personal power and psychological issues. Defining the matter through the restriction of options/confrontations with personal responsibility is the first step. Then comes Scorpio's ability to transform and heal.
Venus moves into your sector of work, health and routine. Relationships with co-workers will improve, and you should be able to attract the help/solutions/creative ideas that you need to put a brighter spin on health issues. Watch that you don't misdirect this energy by blurring work/romantic boundaries, or letting escapist/self-destructive urges convince you to overlook essential details (on October 3rd). There's positive potential here, but it will be tempting to slide off track or overindulge. After October 3rd you should be able to correct any slip-ups. Saturn's move into Scorpio sets you up for a few years of defining and clarifying your boundaries. Shared financial resources and/personal intimacy are the areas that will be under review. Issues involving unpaid debts and relationship power struggles will need to be addressed before you can make any progress.
Venus (your ruler) moves into your sector of creativity and celebrations. This is the time to take those creative musings seriously or put some energy towards that personal goal/new romance. October 3rd can be especially inspirational or romantic, but wait for a couple of days after this date to see what actually materializes. The truth will become clear and then you'll know if you should invest your energy, or turn your attention to more realistic prospects. The theme is improving what you have to offer; if you want to be successful, is there something you can polish up? Sloppiness/laziness is not the same as creativity. If you're not happy with the type of romantic attention you're getting, start by taking an inventory of what you have to offer. Saturn's entrance into your partnership sector means that it's time to get serious about relationships. By end of this transit, many of you will have either moved your relationships to the next level of commitment, or ended them. If you're single, this transit could signal the appearance of a "heavy" relationship with responsibilities that are designed to test your boundaries. Everyone in this sign will feel the pressure of increased responsibility for their partner, or vice versa.
Venus moves into your home and family sector, focusing you on detailed home improvements, relationship duties or finances for home businesses, mortgages/ rental payments. A fair exchange of services is the theme, whether it involves family or contractor/business relationships. What do you want to give, and what do you feel obligated to give? Wait until after October 3rd to make a decision or promise; motives and goals will be initially unclear and more information is likely to surface. Saturn's move into your sector of work, health and routine means that it's crunch time. Health concerns that you've been putting off will demand attention. Routines/work that you've let slide will need your focus. Work environments can feel especially restrictive, and if you're not happy with where you are now, this transit could push you out the door.
Venus enters your communication sector, helping you spin things in just the right way. All communications (emails, phone calls, conversations, messages) are favoured, as long as you use precision and clarity. If you have something important to say, wait until after October 3rd; Neptune's opposition can make your words unclear or cause you to hear only what you want. After October 3rd, you'll get all the details and/or be able to express yourself exactly the way you intended. Saturn's entrance into your sector of creativity and celebrations turns the focus onto personal/creative goals; it's time to start taking them seriously. Whatever you're prevented from having/attracting (and that includes new romances) know that it's not part of your new, focused agenda. The only things that will manifest now are those that reflect your essential desires and deepest talents.
Venus in your security sector can attract improved finances and emotional security. But wait until after October 3rd before you ask for a raise, invest your money or take the next step in a relationship. Neptune's opposition can make you miss crucial details or inflate your hopes about a romantic situation. The outlook is positive, but wait until you have all the facts before you move forward. Saturn's move into your home and family sector can introduce major family responsibilities. Caring for an aging parent, buying a new home or relocating (to live closer to your childhood home) are possible manifestations. Issues from childhood may come to the surface and old habits, identities or responsibilities can no longer be avoided. It's time to confront the past.
Venus in your sign gives you a wonderful boost. Are they really looking at you? Yes, they are. And they're not commenting on the little flaws that only you can see. Humble is fine, self-flagellation is not. You'll attract what you put out, so make the most of this energy by focusing on what you've got going for you, not what you're lacking. Alternatively, if there's a romantic, financial or creative goal that you've been longing to pursue, now would be a good time to go for it. One caveat; wait until after October 3rd before you say yes or make your next move. Neptune's opposition can stir up relationship delusions, wishful thinking or self-sacrificing behaviour. Saturn's move into your communication sector gives you an unbeatable shot of focus, determination and discipline. Your words will have added weight, and you can command some serious respect when you speak your mind. This transit can also increase pessimism and depression; rather than telling yourself what you can't do, focus on one thing at a time. Give it your full attention, and see what happens.
Venus (your ruler) moves into your sector of secrets as you pull back and concentrate on a private project or hidden potential. The unknown or undiscovered can hold intriguing promise, but wait until after October 3rd to get a clearer idea of what might develop. Neptune's opposition may throw up a temporary smokescreen that involves your duties to others or your personal health. Remember that there's a difference between service and sacrifice. If you're doubting yourself, move forward one step at a time and focus on the current details rather than the big picture. You'll receive confirmation/encouragement when Venus moves into your sign on October 28th. As Saturn leaves your sign, you'll feel a weight shift as his final lessons are concluded. It's been a tough few years but you've emerged stronger, more independent and more disciplined. Get ready to take your newfound focus/determination and apply it to your finances and emotional security. Saturn wants to draw your attention to exactly what you need so you can make the most of it. That means tightening up your budget and your emotional expectations. You won't necessarily have less money and support, but you will have to work extra hard for everything you need.
Venus in your sector of friends and groups makes you aware of exactly who you want in your social circle. Certain people will be revealed as true-blue, while others will be found lacking. New introductions (and even a new romance) are possible, but wait until after October 3rd to see past an idealized/romantic mask. As Saturn enters your sign, it's time to focus and restructure. You do have tremendous power (whether this manifests as intensity, obsession or passion) and Saturn is going to help you make the most of it. Initially, you may find your options restricted. This is not the time to expand. You're meant to work with what you have (or what you're left with) and deepen it to its full potential. Saturn's key word is "responsibility", so keep this in mind over the next few years.
Venus brings her charms to your career sector, as you attract new opportunities and favourable attention from higher ups. Use this professional boost to apply for a new job or discuss your existing duties with management. Work ethics, details and the improvement of an existing situation are all favoured. However, wait until after October 3rd before taking any actions/having discussions; Neptune's opposition can make your goals/statements unclear. Saturn's entrance into your hidden sector can signal a time of endings in preparation for his entrance into your sign (in December, 2014). Certain relationships/jobs/habits or scenarios may end, but know that this is all part of Saturn's plan to focus you on the future essentials. For now, allow what's finished to fall away.
Venus in your sector of opportunities can bring you so much to work with. New developments involving long distance travel, education, legal matters or publishing could present themselves. Long distance romance is a possibility as well. After October 3rd, the details/potentials will be much clearer, and you'll see that something with staying power could be brewing. Engaging others/getting your message out with precision is important. As Saturn (your ruler) enters your sector of friends and groups, your social life will be up for review. By the time this transit is finished, certain associations will have ended. But you'll be left with those who you can depend on for life. The theme of this transit is building a social network that is unshakable. While you're at it, take a look at how you have interacted with others; this transit will confront you with the results of your social actions.
Venus moves into your sector of intimacy and shared resources. An existing relationship can deepen as you work out the details of exactly what works for you and your partner. Full disclosure/honest discussions is the way to go now, but wait until after October 3rd; Neptune's opposition can temporarily muddy the waters with doubts and paranoia. Alternatively, issues around debts, taxes or loans could look more positive as you receive financial assistance or find a workable solution. Again, after October 3rd will reveal the full details (wait until after this date before you sign any documents/make financial commitments). Saturn's move into your career sector can be a high point as the work that you've put in over the past years finally comes to fruition. Respect for your efforts will manifest, along with a significant increase in responsibilities. However, if you haven't been happy with your career path, this transit can push you out the door toward a vocation/future goal that's more suited to you. Either way, the next few years will be about defining your goals and achievements.
Venus in your relationship sector can introduce a new love interest or boost your existing partnership. The focus will be on you deciding exactly what you want, what's working and what's not. Remember that you're aiming for improvement, not a laundry list of faults/reason why it won't work out. Wait until after October 3rd to get past the romantic fantasies and/or mixed messages. Saturn's entrance into your opportunities sector will clarify your options, while making certain things unavailable. This could be the time when you get serious about going back to school, or when old legal matters re-emerge (so they can be concluded). Long distance travel may be restricted, or allowed for professional purposes only. Any movement outside your immediate boundaries will be highly focused, and growth will be intensified along one or two paths, at the most.
