With your ruling planet Venus turning retrograde on October 5, you're likely to feel out of sorts all month. Venus will retrograde in your 2nd House of Earned Income, making it vital for you to reassess your finances. The 2nd house also rules your self-worth profile -- and that is an even bigger nut you'll need to crack. It's likely that something is going on with your love life that has somehow weakened your confidence or overall self-concept. You're probably not feeling as valued or appreciated by your partner if you're in a relationship. If this is the case, now is the time to make your feelings known to your mate. At the same time, it's an uncomfortable truth that the minute you put your happiness or personal fulfillment in another person's hands, you're asking for trouble. If you've been doing that in your love life, then you need to have a heart-to-heart talk with yourself. Stop waiting for your partner to be your validation and learn how to be your own biggest fan.
A New Moon in your sign on October 8 will help you out in a significant way. You want to turn over a new leaf in your personal life and how you teach others to treat you. Between this lunation and Venus being retrograde in your sign from October 31 through November 16, you'll have a major opportunity for a personal excavation that will ultimately lead you to a more fulfilling love life in every way possible.
