October 2011 Libra Love Horoscope

Make it or break it

This could be a month when you're able to make a breakthrough in relationships. Whether it's repairing a current one or opening the way to connect with someone new, you're ready to upgrade the quality of your personal life. 

The key player in this lovely story is the Sun, which is in your sign and your 1st House of Personality until October 23. This is a confidence building transit that makes you feel stronger and able to be more assertive with others. Any danger of appearing too pushy is tempered until October 8 while diplomatic and graceful Venus is also in Libra. 

Your appealing ruling planet Venus then shifts into scrutinizing Scorpio and your 2nd House of Self-worth. This transit may lead you to examine your values and reassess what you want from others and what you're willing to give them in return. Being fair and gracious is nice, of course, but don't be afraid to be honest with yourself because denying your feelings creates resentment that can undermine any relationship. Venus in Scorpio is also useful for rediscovering abilities or talents that haven't been used for some time. 

A similar theme occurs when the Sun enters sexy Scorpio on October 23, putting even more light on the subject of your needs and what you're willing to do to get them fulfilled. Silently simmering with discontent may temporarily appear to keep the peace, but the longer that you're silent about an unfair situation the more unlikely it is that you will rebuild trust in the source of your disappointment.
