Money and love will experience a revival this month for you, Aries, but not exactly in the way we’d hope. With Venus turning retrograde in Scorpio on October 5th, this will be a time for you to repair your finances. Remember, retrogrades aren’t always about halting progress and making our electronics break down — they also mean that things from the past could re-emerge and create a positive impact. Have you missed out an opportunity you thought was no longer an option? Be on the lookout for that money-making prospect to find its way back into your life. The same goes for your love life, as Venus in retrograde could mean giving a second chance to a past flame that you’re ready to make official this time.

Taurus

With your ruling planet Venus in retrograde from October 5th through November 16th, expect to see some important shakeups in Scorpio, aka your 7th House of Committed Relationships. The good news? If you’re in a happy and healthy relationship, this is a time to work on that love connection by bringing up any past concerns or insecurities for a heart-to-heart discussion with your amor. Now is your time to either get out of a toxic relationship or strengthen the good one you’re in.

Gemini

Now that Venus has sat in retrograde since Friday, October 5th, you in particular, Gemini, are not really feeling the love this month, except that it might be coming from your colleagues and coworkers more than a love relationship. You may find yourself feeling underappreciated and misunderstood. However, remember that retrogrades are still a time for personal reflection and reevaluation. You can make the most of this negative feeling and turn it into positive soul-searching, maybe even decide to look for a new job.

It wouldn’t be a proper Venus retrograde without a former lover popping back up in your life, so expect that old flame you’re always off-and-on again with to reappear once more this week, Cancer. Whoever this past fling was, it was definitely one full of intensity, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself contemplating offering that certain someone another shot or deciding that leaving the past the past is the healthiest option for you.

Everyone is seeing from their past reemerge come this Venus retrograde, and you are no different, you vibrant Leo. While most signs may see former lovers or friendships weaving their way back into their lives again, this retrograde in your home and family sector starting October 5th means that you might find yourself finally letting go of a toxic relative or focusing on your domestic bliss to keep you grounded and fierce like the lion you are.

With Venus in retrograde starting October 5th, you may think you’ve got a strong hold on both your love life and finances, dear Virgo, but the universe is saying otherwise. This isn’t necessarily a negative, just that like most retrograde periods, it’s a time to pinpoint what exactly needs work in your life and create a clear goal-ridden path to fix whatever that is. The New Moon on Tuesday, October 8th, offers you a new opportunity to make money.

Sorry to say it, Libras, but you’ll really feel it this week with your ruling planet Venus going into retrograde starting October 5th. What this means is you’ll feel a definite blow to your confidence and find yourself feeling underappreciated at either work or in a relationship. It’s hard to fight against those taking you for granted during Venus retrograde, but a New Moon on October 8th will help you focus on working on your inner beauty and start fresh.

Oh sexy, sexy Scorpio! When Venus turned retrograde on October 5th, that attractive confidence you’re known for feels to have suddenly vanished. Venus will rest in Scorpio until October 31st, but with a little help from Mercury entering on October 9th, you’ll be able to voice your feelings to those who you feel are putting you down and have too much control over your view of your self-worth. Don’t let anyone step on your happiness, you tough scorpion!

Sagittarius

Your theme for October, Sagittarius, is to walk away. With Venus retrograding in your 12th house of contemplation on October 5th, walking away is the only way you will realize the things that were toxic in your life for what they really are, and, yes, we’re talking about your love life here. Remind yourself that if it is meant to be, it will be. Otherwise, it is time you make a big change.

Capricorn

CREDIT: mitú

This week is all about friendships, Capricorn, and, sadly, not in a friendly way. With Venus turning retrograde in your friendship sector on October 5th, there is definitely the opportunity to feel manipulated by someone. Beware of a backstabbing by someone thought of as a trusted friend. However, in true retrograde fashion, expect the emergence of a friendship from the past and take advantage of this golden opportunity to reconnect. A New Moon in your career house on October 8th offers a nice professional opportunity but is squared by Pluto. Don’t let someone step on you in this new career path and be wise in how you execute your power.

Aquarius

CREDIT: mitú

Are you really doing what you’re meant to do in life, Aquarius? With Venus retrograde impacting on you from October 5th to November 16th, you might find your career is backpedaling and you question whether this is where you’re even supposed to be. A New Moon in your house of legal matters on October 8th might find you using sneaky strategies with a legal proceeding. This isn’t advised. Rise above using tactics just because you think it’ll help get you what you want the fast way.

Pisces 

CREDIT: mitú

The theme of October is relationships, sweet, emotional Pisces, and you won’t get out of this week scot-free. With Venus turning retrograde the Friday before, and a New Moon in Libra on the 8th, intense information is coming to light. If you’re not rock-solid in your current love situation, this week could be the one that breaks it. But don’t sweat it. If it ends, it’s because it needed to and be prepared to embark on a journey of much needed deep healing.

It’s Leo Season: Here’s How You’ll Go Broke Based Off Your Zodiac Sign

It’s Leo Season: Here’s How You’ll Go Broke Based Off Your Zodiac Sign

Praise be, with mercury’s retrograde behind us, we’re looking straight ahead to celebrating Leo in all its fiery glory. The retrograde has just rained twelve levels of emotional basura down upon us and Leo is going to burn it all up. We’re stepping out of the depths of emotional mierda and letting our strange selves be set free, thanks to Leo.

We’re here for all the self-care our hearts need, and after such a trying month behind us, and indulgent Leo egging us on, we’re all about to go broke. Here’s how you will.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

We’re feeling turned around after Mercury in retrograde and want to feel safe again. Taurus, you might be feeling like now’s the time to invest in that home security system and you’re right.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo, we know that by telling you this, you’re going to feel obligated to buy it, but that’s the point. You would need to buy this Ezy Dog $99 seatbelt harness for your dog because you know it’s the only crash tested harness that will actually protect your baby in the case of an emergency. Earth signs, we’re here for security.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

All the earth signs are going to be looking for ways to ground themselves, especially after the chaos of yester-season. My fellow Capricorns, we are laughably practical in how we spend our money, but it speaks to what makes us feel good–by grounding into the earth. I already bought four pair of shoes this week, hbu?

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Credit: Colombia.gram / Instagram

Leo has you feeling ready to create the life you’ve always wanted to have. You’ve had an international trip on your mind, and you know what, there’s no time like the present. Pull the trigger and buy that flight to Colombia, girl.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Credit: cruiseaholic2 / Instagram

Feliz cumple, Leo! This your time to shine, and the stars are making it so that you get the most bang for your buck. Throw yourself that party. Go on that weekend cruise. Celebrate every version of yourself you’ve brought to your birthdays and toast to next year’s.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius, you’re such a giving soul, and Leo just brings out the extravagance of generosity in you. You’ve wanted to take your mama back to Cuba for a minute. Do it.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Credit: iamdawnmccoy / Instagram

For you, dear Cancer, indulgence is best spent shared. You’re on the verge of going broke to share an emotional connection and special memory with your partner. 

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

It may sound too on-the-nose, Scorpio, but both you and Capricorn are feeling the kink in the air. We don’t need to tell you to be sex-positive. We’re just giving you a heads up that you about to go broke on a sex toy subscription box. : P 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Credit: goodbyebahamas / Instagram

Sweet Pisces, your heart is so full this Leo season, and only you could offer the love and care a special needs animal requires. We think you’re about to go broke paying medical bills for that special three-legged turtle in your life.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Credit: translatinacoalition / Instagram

Gemini, this season could go one of two ways. You’re either about to drop money on a couple kegs and throw a party, or this political season has you wanting to invest in the future. If it’s the latter, may we suggest the Trans Latina Coalition because you know justice is intersectional and trans Latina immigrants are at high risk.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Credit: so_lizaveta / Instagram

Dear Libra, this season, Leo won’t have you stray too far from what you know. Libra would go broke buying VIP tickets to the work convention they’ve always needed to elevate their networking game.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius, there’s no doubt about it. You’re going to invest in the stars by actually buying one and naming it after yourself. 😂

Walter Mercado Has A Strong Warning For President Trump As He Faces 2019

Walter Mercado Has A Strong Warning For President Trump As He Faces 2019

Every year, since we were little kids, Walter Mercado has been there for us to warn us of heartbreak, money problems, and impending 9.0 earthquakes. Our abuelas would gather around the TV and plan their whole year around his predictions. Every word, our mothers soaked in and prepared us for–stocking extra cans of Goya, lighting candles, and burning relics of the people who’ve wronged us.

Every December, Mercado gives us the full scoop of what’s to come in the new year. The ageless spiritual advisor’s predictions are already coming true. Check out what this year has to offer from the one and only, Walter Mercado.

ICYMI, add this to 2019’s NYE rituals.

Yes, keep wishing on 12 grapes and tossing the dirty water that absorbed the negative energy of the year, but also, you should do this. Walter Mercado suggests that you light three candles, in the color represented by your zodiac sign, and walk throughout your house, invoking the power of Dios poderoso, to bring you closer to God.

Have faith and 2019 is yours for the taking.

CREDIT: The New Herald / YouTube

En serio. He said that the universe will conspire in favor of those with faith, perseverance, passion, dedication, and effort. It will be the year your dreams come true if you choose to believe in them. Have faith and go after what you want in this life becuase it is yours for the taking.

There will be five eclipses this year.

CREDIT: @homelessnessBC / Twitter

Here’s the schedule for the year:

January 21: a lunar eclipse in Leo.

July 2: a solar eclipse in Cancer.

July 26: a lunar eclipse in Capricorn.

December 26: a solar eclipse in Cancer.

The stars are heavily aligned for Capricorns.

His advice for Capricorns to make the most out of their year? Wear a touch of green or red with an otherwise mostly black and white wardrobe.

Carve out a day for yourself to attract good luck in the new year and be sure to wear garnet to attract that buena suerte. Then, take a bath using a new bar of soap. Throw away the soap and light a small white or purple candle on your bathroom floor. It must be 6 p.m. to honor Saint Lazarus.

I’m just the messenger.

2019 will be a major year of change.

CREDIT: The New Herald / YouTube

Fire will burn what’s already dead to you. You’ll be able to correct the mistakes of the past and don a new perspective that will change your life.

It’s also the year of the pig.

CREDIT: The New Herald / YouTube

The pig is the twelfth (last) of the zodiac animals. The story goes that the Jade Emperor dubbed the numbers associated with the zodiac animals according to the order they arrived at his party. The pig was late because he overslept.

In the Chinese zodiac, the pig is associated with good fortune.

The lucky number of 2019 will be 12.

CREDIT: The New Herald / YouTube

Think about it. The twelfth animal. Mercado is super excited about the number twelve (tribes of Israel, apostles, calendar months, hours, etc.). He really went on about it. You had to be there.

The lucky colors of the year will be white and red (unless you’re a Capricorn).

CREDIT: @DinkyWorld / Twitter

Capricorns should be burning black candles the night before anything they expect to be transformative, like a job interview, a move, or travel. Oh, and if you want to seduce someone, get yourself pink quartz.

Mother nature is going to give us warning signs to start taking care of her.

CREDIT: @haleyedleman / Twitter

This is the part where Mercado talks about how we’ll have even more floods, blizzards, fires, and earthquakes this year. He’s not wrong.

He called out Miami specifically for it’s prosperity in 2019.

CREDIT: @ms.gl0betrotter / Instagram

We’ve always known the 305 is blessed with the best, and Mercado just confirmed it. His exact words (translated by The Miami Herald) are, “Opportunities for success by artists from around the world multiply. Miami is a secure port for those who seek fame, glory, and freedom.”

The economic recession will shift.

CREDIT: @keuilianmi / Instagram

Some Latin American countries will still be affected but there will be improvements in the United States, the Caribbean, and Europe. Education will become the most important legislative matter.

Puerto Rico will become an example of hope.

CREDIT: @puertoricoprimeshot / Instagram

It already is. This year will be the year that Puerto Rico finally recovers from Hurricane Maria and will become an example of “generosity, humanity, compassion and resiliency” (translated by The Miami Herald).

The Dominican Republic is going modern.

CREDIT: @pamelamrodriguez / Instagram

Mercado’s made predictions about many Latin American countries in his typical lavish fashion i.e. “Panama continues on the road to becoming paradise on earth.” (translation by The Miami Herald.) He also says that Central American refugees will continue to face obstacles. </3

Protests will continue to rise in Cuba.

CREDIT: @ereiracitystencilpaint / Instagram

Diplomacy is not in Cuba’s future with countries like the U.S., Brazil, and Colombia. Justice won’t be served en masse in 2019, lo siento.

The KKK and racist groups will continue to rise in the U.S.

CREDIT: @dudenotnow / Instagram

Politics will become even more polarized. I mean, he made this prediction before our weeks-long government shut down, so I’m praying Mercado’s wrong, but betting he’s right.

Mercado’s exact words have already made headlines.

CREDIT: @no_mamex / Instagram

Ok, so his exact Miami Herald-translated words were, “Donald Trump, the controversial president, will face his worst year and perhaps even impeachment.” This headline was published in The LA Times on January 2.

There will be new discoveries in every field.

CREDIT: @polina_polary / Instagram

Ok, well, we could expect that from almost any year, but we’ve got Trumper’s blocking research into HIV and more, so this is some pretty good news. Hope someone gets the great idea of refunding research.

Mercado even made a prediction about social media.

CREDIT: The New Herald / YouTube

He says that social networks will “expand their reach and power” per The Miami Herald’s translation. Guess he wasn’t too impressed by the Senate hearings with Mark Zuckerberg this year, or he’s just like your abuelo in his wonder of social media’s new grip on society.

The Sun Card has been drawn by The Tarot for 2019.

CREDIT: The New Herald / YouTube

That means that the light of wonder and love will reach all parts of the world. The Sun card is associated with unconditional love. So while there are some bleak forecasts, ultimately, the heavens are pulling for the side of love and harmony.

Go into 2019 with mucho, mucho amor.

CREDIT: The New Herald / YouTube

Figure out who you are and then go out and be you on purpose. 2019 is already a fortuitous year for you. If you’re a Capricorn or Sagittarius, here’s your reality check: these stars don’t align for you in this targeted way often. This year’s your moment. Use it up.
