Putting extra attention into relationships is worth the effort this month. October begins with the Sun in lovely Libra and your 7th House of Partnership. This can attract gracious people and signals the need for you to be more attentive to others' needs. Dealing with the little details that allow love to flow easily can make the difference between fulfillment and frustration now.
Amorous Venus enters critical Virgo and your 6th House of Adjustments on October 2, challenging you to examine your behavior more carefully and commit to improving the ways that you play with others. It's not easy to face your flaws or to point out a partner's shortcoming but the point isn't to blame, it's to examine problems objectively so steps can be taken to correct them.
Sure, your energetic ruling planet Mars is flying away in adventurous Sagittarius on October 6, encouraging you to overlook immediate issues with thoughts of distant dreams. If you take a romantic leap and don't back it up with greater consciousness of what's needed to ground it in reality, reality may knock you to the ground. The Libra New Moon on October 15 offers a fresh start in relationships. Beginning with a clean slate allows you to leave old problems behind.
Whether changes are just window dressing to cover up current issues or represent real shifts that make you a better partner will become evident once the Sun enters intense Scorpio on October 22. The 30-day solar transit of your 8th House of Intimacy should let know exactly where you stand, particularly in terms of fulfilling your needs while satisfying your partner.
