Venus' Sagittarius ingress begins on October 18th. After the exploration of what lay beneath relationship, financial and self-esteem issues, she reaches out and up. The exploration continues, but now the search for new truths and new possibilities takes you over the horizon.
This transit urges you to have faith that something better is coming. Love will improve and grow. What you want may actually be out there, and you can afford it. Beauty lies in the glow of promise that you can see...just over there. If you don't have faith that things will improve, that things will be ok, you'll never get out of bed. And you can choose to not have faith. To believe in nothing. You can sit this one out, because sometimes it's easier to be hopeless. Hope leaves you open to pain.
...for those who want to progress, you have to move on. You have to take that risk and start believing again. Even a rock solid relationship or value system will stagnate if there's no expansion. And for sure...the pain of an eviscerating love or the abyss of zero self-esteem will remain magnetically fresh if you don't move forward. You have to make room for something new, even if you're not certain that you'll achieve it. With this transit, the cliché about the journey being more important than the goal is true. What you learn along the way is what triggers growth.
Venus will be in mutual reception with Jupiter in Libra. This adds an extra layer of optimism, as Venus and Jupiter strengthen each other. Partnership issues will be key- new ways to cooperate, new people to meet, new things to learn about a partner you've been with for many years. For those who've been dancing the same, painful relationship dance, these influences can open your eyes to different ways of connecting. Maybe you don't have to play the role of ____. That's the core of Jupiter/Sag's optimism - you are given a broader perspective, which encourages you to try something different. Sag is a Mutable sign - truth is not carved in stone. The downside is "flexible" honesty. The upside is busting out of unhealthy truths you've been telling yourself.
Who knows where this might lead?
The Venus/Jupiter sextile (October 26th) will be an important date. Another key date will be Venus' conjunction with Saturn, on October 29th - the finish line, reality check or formal commitment.
