October 2011 Virgo Love Horoscope

Stylish and sexy

Investing in yourself makes a great deal of sense during most of this month. The life-giving and confidence building Sun is in lovely Libra and your 2nd House of Self-worth until October 23. You might feel like it's vain to spend too much time and money on your appearance, but the power of looking better can have dramatic effects. Tasteful clothes and a more contemporary style can shift you into a higher social gear. 

Venus, the planet of love and beauty, is also in Libra when the month starts, but it shifts into secretive Scorpio on October 8. This occurs in your 3rd House of Communication, inviting more intimate and confidential conversations. Earning the trust of others requires you to avoid idle gossip because sharing someone else's secrets can undermine trust. 

Still, Venus in this part of your chart can add a dash of sexiness to even the most ordinary experiences. A trip to the market, for example, might not bring romance, but one look from an attractive stranger can brighten your outlook considerably. 

Your cerebral ruling planet Mercury enters Scorpio on October 13, increasing opportunities for intimate conversation. Little chats can quickly turn very deep as delicate subjects emerge. The Sun then enters your verbal 3rd house on October 23, adding even more importance to the power of speech. Selecting the right words and finding the right tone can help you heal a wounded alliance or initiate a new one. Avoid criticism unless it's wrapped in compassion and includes realistic solutions.
