Are you ready for shifting energy, transformation, and adventure in romance? Then the stars have got you covered this week because they’re bringing new energy and some excitement!

While you may be experiencing the frustration of Mercury in retrograde, the excitement begins on October 6th with a New Moon in balanced Libra. The New Moon is the time of the month when we get a clean slate, a chance to start over and focus on what we’d like to manifest during the upcoming lunar cycle.

When the New Moon is in Libra, you may feel a push to focus on creating more balance and harmony in your life!

On October 6th, Pluto is also making changes by moving direct in the sign of Capricorn. Pluto is the planet of transformation and power, and when it’s retrograde, those shifts in energy and power struggles to slow down a bit. When Pluto moves direct in Capricorn, we can expect plenty of changing energy and personal transformations – which can be a beautiful thing.

Finally, on October 7th, Venus – the planet of love and beauty – moves into fiery, freedom-loving Sagittarius.

This may signal a need for more independence in relationships, but it can also urge us to seek more adventures and exciting experiences with those we love. It’s time to infuse romantic relationships with spontaneity and fun!

October 4 – October 10 is a Week for Manifestation, Transformation, & Passion

Try to start the week exploring yourself and your desires to determine what you want to manifest for the month – and don’t forget to practice your New Moon ritual!

With Pluto moving direct, this is also a fabulous time to think about the internal transformation you desire; what would you most like to change or embrace within yourself?

Venus in Sagittarius asks us to find passion, adventure, and independence within our relationships. While it’s essential to appreciate your connections, feeling a sense of independence and freedom within those connections is crucial now.

If you’re not sure how to assert your independence, a personalized astrological reading can help you locate the perfect starting point for you.
