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.

Everyone is seeing from their past reemerge come this Venus retrograde, and you are no different, you vibrant Leo.

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.

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 it ends, it’s because it needed to and be prepared to embark on a journey of much needed deep healing.
