Communication may be a sore point for you this month, distracting you from enjoying romantic opportunities as much as you'd like. Still, with Mars in your romance sector until October 26, there's plenty of opportunity for you to get yourself out there and enjoy the pleasures of life and love. Perhaps the secret to your romantic success this month will be to talk less and act more.

Mars is a planet that requires activity. When he travels through your 5th House of Romance (once every two years) there is more of a physical emphasis on romance. You'll enjoy dating activities that get your heart racing and your blood boiling! Obviously that includes sexual activity, but sex isn't the only benefit to having Mars in your 5th house. You might decide to take part in sports activities or other physically challenging tasks with your lover. This can be anything from dancing the night away to a DIY home project that makes you sweat. Any of these activities will help bring you closer to your sweetheart.
This is especially helpful to know during a Mercury Retrograde cycle. Mercury will be out of phase from October 4-25, and during this time you might experience more confusion than usual in conversations -- including those with your mate. Take it in stride, not personally. In fact, if you see this as an opportunity to redefine how you communicate with your love, it could be quite refreshing. For now, however, October looks like a month you and your special someone should be less mental and more physical. So what are you waiting for? Get busy!
