Oh, Aries ... your love life is about to turn into a top-rated reality show. All the dirt, all the secrets, and yes, all the pain are about to be exposed in your romantic world. Even if you thought everything was going perfectly in your love life, this month will remind you that no relationship is untouchable. Temptations happen, people lie, and mistakes are made. Now, don't assume your happy marriage or committed partnership is automatically on the rocks in October. If you're in a good place, then this most likely will be about you and your mate having to recalibrate joint finances. With Venus moving retrograde in your 8th House of Shared Resources, it will actually be a good time to tackle the money matters you deal with as a team.
If, however, you're going into October knowing that something is not quite right about your love life ... well ... there's a different storyline unfolding. Venus Retrograde in your 8th house can bring a rather dark and ugly situation between you and your partner to light. This might be something that happened ages ago, something you thought was dealt with. However, for whatever reason, it needs another look. Or, it might come back to haunt you. How you deal with the monsters in your love life closet this month is your choice, Aries. If the love is there, you and your mate will have an opportunity for forgiveness and a fresh start. If the love has been too damaged by painful betrayal or toxic behavior, you might begin to realize it's time to call it quits.
