Building on today's trine between Mars and Pluto, Venus in Virgo completes a trine with Pluto on October 3rd. The combined energies of Venus (what you want) and Mars (what you do to get it) are intensified by Pluto, suggesting a smooth flow of manifestation. Ground your desires in the present, and take steps to make them happen.
Venus and Mars will perfect their conjunction on October 5th, the same day as the Mars-ruled Aries Full Moon. The Aries/Libra polarity is reflected in this conjunction, suggesting that Full Moon results will involve correct (Virgo) actions (Mars) aimed at fixing or improving a desired (Venus) situation. The Libra Sun conjoins Mercury (ruler of Virgo) and Sun/Mercury make confusing inconjuncts to Neptune. Separating fact from fiction could be challenging.
Virgo insists on high standards and rigorous clarity. This will be further emphasized by Venus’ square to Saturn in Sagittarius, exact on October 8th. The Sun/Mercury conjunction in Libra will also perfect on this day. Mars is applying to a square with Saturn, exact on October 11th. Progress from the Pluto trines may hit a snag around the Full Moon, or up to October 11th. Saturn will slow things down, demand proof, hi-light what's missing, or deliver hard consequences. Extra work will be featured, as you discover that what you want requires even more effort.
But if you really want this, it's worth it.
Venus (and Mars) in your sector of routine trine Pluto, fortifying your work efforts, health and energy level. You can make steady progress in career or diet/exercise if you focus on the small issues and make necessary corrections. Excellent for improving relationships with co-workers or gaining favourable attention from management, clients or the public. However, the Venus/Mars squares to Saturn will remind you of limits in the above areas, via excess responsibilities or physical restrictions. If you hit a block, slow down and confront the problem with a step-by-step approach. If you’re presented with excess responsibilities, aim for a scrupulous approach (don’t rush it).
The Full Moon in your sign can hi-light a crucial relationship conversation or understanding. An imbalance between you and another may be revealed, and what’s expected of you may feel unfair. Consider the role that your daily workor habits play in the Full Moon’s outcome. Secrets or unacknowledged expectations can undermine your efforts - be crystal clear onthe details, and ground yourself in the immediate facts (avoid mind reading or projecting your hopes).
Venus (and Mars) in your sector of self-expression trine Pluto, intensifying a romantic attraction, creative project or personal goal. What you want/love can manifest, and you may find support via education, long-distance travel, legal matters or publishing. The further you venture into new territory, the more you can gain. However, the Venus/Mars squares to Saturn will remind you that there’s more work to be done, or that you may not get the complete package. Financial or intimacy restrictions can slow you down. Don’t give up (if you really want this, it’s worth the effort) but do be aware of boundaries or the need for patience.
The Full Moon in your hidden sector can reveal a truth about work or health issues. Something you’ve been avoiding, or something in your blindspot, can make itself known via your daily routines or attention to practical details. Consider if your efforts to succeed, gain attention or impress someone have created an imbalance. Also, be wary of misguided ideals/insecurities triggered by an external source. Acknowledge the bigger picture (or ultimate goal) but don’t lose sight of your immediate concerns. Especially crucial if this involves a public launch, promotion or performance.
Venus (and Mars) in your domestic sector trine Pluto, encouraging progress with family, a home renovation, home business or relocation. Home finances or your partner’s financial status look encouraging, as do all domestic relationships. Watch for a deepening sense of trust - the more you share, the stronger you are. However, the Venus/Mars squares to Saturn can emphasize tension around a particular relationship goal or commitment. You and your partner may have different ideas about what the future holds, or there may be a struggle to achieve the desired goal. Too, you could feel pressured to make everything better or meet your partner’s standards. Do what you can while accepting that more improvements will happen in the future.
The Full Moon in your social sector can illuminate an issue with friends, groups or your relationship to the public. A public launch, speech or event may be slightly mismatched with your ideals. Too, the impact on your professional life/dealings with management could be disappointing. Consider how your public efforts are influenced by your personal/family life. Efforts you make at home will have an external impact, even if those efforts are a result of increased stress. Don’t allow professional disillusionment to distract you from responsibilities in your personal life.
Venus (and Mars) in your communication sector trine Pluto, suggesting a smooth, intense flow of words/ideas between you and another. An existing partnership (or new relationship) can benefit from your direct approach - say what you want, then follow up with actions. Keep it grounded in the present moment and you won’t be perceived as too pushy, and you’ll stand a good chance of getting what you want. However, the Venus/Mars squares to Saturn will remind you that there are some practical details (involving work or health) that must be attended to. Your words must be rock solid, and proven down to the last detail. This is not the time for maybe or sort of - keep it precise and be prepared to back up your ideas with work. You may discover than an initially promising message/conversation comes with built-in limits. There’s more work to be done before you get desired results.
The Full Moon in your career sector can present a powerful result involving a new job, your professional image or your relationship with someone in authority. Career goals may need some adjusting, as your promising communication/request hits a snag. As noted above, your best way forward is to keep all information/actions as clear and precise as possible. Have proof of everything, and be prepared to show your work. If the result is not what you hoped for, don’t give up - focus on the present and tackle the immediate issue.
Venus (and Mars) in your sector of personal resources trine Pluto, giving you a financial and self-esteem boost. Changes in your work and/or health regime can pay off nicely, helping you manifest visible results. However, the Venus/Mars squares to Saturn will keep you on a narrow path, as you encounter limits that restrict your finances or dent your confidence. What you want demands extra work and restraint- results may not come quickly, but you’re on the right track.
The Full Moon in your sector of opportunities can bring results around long-distance travel, education, legal matters or publishing. An official announcement or answer may be confusing, or there could be hidden information to consider. Efforts to boost money/security will be connected to this Full Moon, and you’ll have to consider all the facts (especially the unspoken ones). Don’t allow secrets or buried information to undermine your hard work.
Venus (and Mars) in your sign trine Pluto, increasing your confidence, attraction power and drive to succeed. Your dedication to something you want can pay off, but the Venus/Mars square to Saturn is a reminder that there’s more work to be done before you get it right. Isn’t that always the case? You’re no stranger to extra effort, so this should be business as usual. Take stock of your recent success, and keep pushing. Domestic responsibilities may slow you down, so you’ll have to work within those parameters.
The Full Moon in your sector of shared resources suggests results involving debts, taxes, loans, your partner’s finances or physical/emotional intimacy. A fact may be illuminated, along with a relationship disappointment. Too, financial details or promises between you and another may be confusing - don’t allow certain things to go unsaid. Get all the facts out on the table, especially if home finances or family concerns are involved. There may be additional responsibilities that you hadn’t considered. Fortunately, you have the power to deal with this, even if some of your efforts are limited.
Venus (and Mars) in your hidden sector trine Pluto, adding weight and purpose to a hidden attraction or goal. Background developments will be supported by domestic changes or a redefinition of your base identity - watch for a quiet but sure sense that things are unfolding as they should. However, the Venus/Mars squares to Saturn can trigger frustrations in the form of difficult news or confrontations with reality. Rather than folding under the weight of these developments, use the increased pressure to refine and clarify background developments. Good intentions aren’t enough - proof of intent is needed.
The Full Moon in your partnership sector can present a relationship turning point that features your answer or request. Watch for an emerging understanding of hidden issues. Your partner may push for a decision, or you may decide that it’s time to clarify things. Whether you’re asking or answering, you’ll be challenged to provide specifics and stand firm on what you decide. No waffling allowed- this is a now-or-never scenario. If someone asks you exactly how you plan on accomplishing X, Y or Z, make sure you have a solid answer.
Venus (and Mars) in your social sector trine Pluto, suggesting solid progress in a friendship, new social connection, group activity or public launch. Your public image/reputation will benefit from a deepening focus on authentic ideas - if you have something to say that you’re passionate about, speak up. Relationships can intensify (favourably) and there is the possibility of an emerging romance. However, the Venus/Mars squares to Saturn will trigger some tension with others. You’ll have to be careful that you don’t overstep boundaries, or push a situation further than it’s ready to progress. Too, you may be challenged to prove your worth (publicly). Financial restrictions can play a role.
The Full Moon in your sector of routine can illuminate a background issue/secret in the areas of health, work or unbalanced relationships. What you’ve suspected (or what’s been lurking in your blind spot) can be made very public, and there may be demands for you to explain yourself. Too, the results of a hidden issue can be made public. There may be a temptation to fudge the facts or brush the whole situation off. Or, someone may use pretty words to distract you from the facts. Either way, the hard truth is your only way forward - own up to what you’ve been avoiding, and don’t accept excuses from anyone else.
Venus (and Mars) in your career sector trine Pluto, helping to solidify an emerging career goal, business, or professional relationship. What’s taking shape can earn you more, while boosting your self-esteem and professional reputation. Professional connections can be especially lucrative. However, the Venus/Mars squares to Saturn in your sign will remind you that success takes extra work - this will not be handed to you. Increased responsibilities can delay a desired outcome (such as a new job), but that doesn’t mean it’s off the table. You may simply have to dig in and prove you’ve got what it takes. Regarding work relationships, make sure you keep things professional- your reputation could be impacted.
The Full Moon in your sector of self-expression suggests a public event, launch or result that displays your talents. Networking, public messages or public speaking will be hi-lighted, and how you cooperate with others in authority will be key. Watch for mixed messages or projected expectations - don’t assume that others are on the same page as you (you may have to spell it out). Also, make sure that there’s no room for misunderstandings with any public messages you’re delivering. Your authority may be tested, as you’re pushed to prove your expertise. There is a possible success, but it will be directly connected to the amount of work you’ve put in so far.
Venus (and Mars) in your sector of opportunities trine Pluto in your sign, suggesting positive results around long-distance travel, long-distance romance, education, legal matters or publishing. Progress should feel assured, as your efforts to expand are powered up by your emerging confidence and sense of purpose. Excellent for reaching a wider audience. However, the Venus/Mars squares to Saturn can trigger some background limits that you weren’t fully aware of. If you hit a delay, consider what’s going on behind the scenes - it’s possible that an incomplete ending is holding you back. You may need to wrap something up before you can forge ahead.
The Full Moon in your domestic sector illuminates a result/ending in the areas of family dynamics, a relocation, home business or future goals. This could be driven by information about a job, or a conversation with a supervisor. However, know that everything you hear or understand may not be totally clear - make sure you double check the facts before you jump ahead. Developments in your opportunities sector will be connected to these results, and success depends on your ability to take care of loose ends while being ultra-specific about your next step (even if you’re moving into brand new territory).
Venus (and Mars) in your sector of shared resources trine Pluto, suggesting encouraging developments around debts, taxes, loans, your partners finances or physical/emotional intimacy. Secrets or buried information can work in your favour if you push forward and aim for total honesty and trust. A financial gift or lucrative opportunity could be featured. Too, efforts to go deeper in your own development (by confronting fears and releasing attempts to control what cannot be controlled) can increase your personal power. However, the Venus/Mars squares to Saturn can remind you that not everyone is on board with your inner journey. External rules or judgements from friends, groups or public institutes can restrict your financial or emotional security - know that you can’t control what others think, or what society dictates. But your personal journey is still valid, and you still have access to inner strength.
The Full Moon in your communications sector can illuminate an answer, discussion with siblings or announcement. Information around travel, education, legal matters or publishing may be part of these results, as you decide whether to continue on your current path. Developments in your sector of shared resources (especially financial developments) will play a role. However, make sure you’re absoltuely clear on the financial or security angles- some information may be clouded by fears, insecurities or inaccurate facts. Hopes/expectations can mislead you - aim for the hard truth instead.
Venus (and Mars) in your partnership sector trine Pluto, suggesting that a relationship (new or existing) can move forward and deepen. Trust and passion will be the hallmarks. For a business relationship, watch for lucrative cooperation. Also excellent if you’re trying to reach members of the public on a personal level. However, the squares from Venus/Mars to Saturn will create some friction as professional rules or future goals clash with current developments. There will be progress, but you may have to accept that the other person is not totally on board with all your plans. In some cases, success/lack of success may be an issue as you’re confronted with competition.
The Full Moon in your sector of personal resources delivers results involving earned money, self-esteem or emotional security. What you have (or would like to have) will be tested by another. A conversation about intimacy or shared finances may not deliver everything you wanted to hear, especially as the inconjunct to Neptune Rx in your sign suggests misleading information, confusion or lies. Your ability to uncover the truth (or deliver your answers with absolute clarity and consistency) will be key. Now is not the time to gloss over facts or trust that someone else will take care of things if they’re not being open with you.
