October 2018 Love Horoscope

Read your free monthly love horoscope for October 2018

Matters of the heart will require introspection for everyone this month, as well as some possible growing pains. Venus turns retrograde on October 5 and won't turn direct until November 16. She'll retrograde in Scorpio until October 31 but then slides into Libra for her final retrograde stretch. Old romantic wounds might reopen for some but if this happens, the pain is for a purpose. It's time to purge and heal once and for all. For others, an old romantic connection might come back from the dead. Will you choose to breathe new life into this relationship? Has anything really changed?

A New Moon in Libra on October 8 points to a fresh start in partnership matters for many but since Venus, the ruler of this lunation, is now retrograde, it will require putting something from your past to rest. Love can be hauntingly beautiful this month for some ... but it can just as easily be plain old haunting.
