I am testing a new tabbed format of the Aries Daily Horoscope page:
This Month: Aries
October 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Aries: Relationships are a major focus this month, dear Aries. All inner planets are in relationship sectors in your solar chart this month, although some are in your intimacy sector and this can boost your relationship with yourself just as much as an intimate connection. Mind you, Venus, the goddess of love, is retrograde from the 5th forward, and complications are likely. You may be rethinking your needs or those of a partner and dealing with debts from the past, too, since Venus spends most of October in your sector of shared resources. Take your time and don't push matters. Go over your finances carefully, get counsel if needed, and avoid disputes over money. Fortunately, you're likely to have some help. Recognizing the need for others is essential now, but avoid taking this point to dependency levels, especially given that Venus is retrograde and people can be a little distant emotionally.
One of the best news for you in October is about Mars, your ruler, as it's picking up the pace and getting back to its usual speed. This transit helps move things along after sluggish months and gives you at least the sense that things are moving ahead, even if retrograde Venus brings with it some delays. Your social life may have been on the dull side in recent months, and while the withdrawal or lack has not been a terrible experience for you, the liveliness that October and November bring to friendships may be quite welcome. Watch, however, for the drama level to rise too high, particularly with Venus' charm and people skills not working up to par. The tendency to push too hard or for social blunders is particularly strong around the 10th and 19th. If current relationships are not satisfying your deeper needs, there can be reactions now.
The New Moon the 8th is about a fresh start in a partnership or meaningful friendship. Alternatively, it's about better understanding your relationship needs and taking charge of this area of your life.
While it's not necessarily a time to sweep matters under the rug, some care should be taken with all love matters this month, particularly those surrounding shared finances and intimacy with Venus retrograde in your intimacy sector in October and then from November 1st to 16th, in your partnership sector. October is a good month for redesigning your budget, but it's not reliable for making big purchases. You could easily regret your purchases or relationship commitments later, so take the time to think about things before you leap forward. There can be upheaval or tensions related to money, possessions, or intimacy this month. A conversation may occur with a love interest or partner, but be aware that it can quickly spiral into unproductive patterns. Or, a conversation with a love from your past can be sparked up this month. If you receive further information about a past relationship, this can be eye-opening and help with closure. Even if things get nowhere or seem to go backward, it's a necessary process for illuminating where you stand and what you will take forward with you into the future. A bit of detachment can help you. While you can feel a little in the dark about your feelings until the 25th, after this date, new awareness and possibly the beginnings of a plan of action emerges. Intimate relationships can benefit from a fresh start or vision as you have recently redefined what you want and need from others, as well as what you expect from yourself.
The Full Moon on the 24th can serve as a wake-up call about taking charge of your finances.
With Jupiter on the last leg of its journey through your solar eighth house (it will move onto your adventure sector on November 9th), you may want to take full advantage of its powerful aspects at the end of October. This is a time for facing fears and breaking through taboos and can be a great time for receiving support or getting help. You can experience a real sense of joy through intimacy with someone special, or experience an emotional breakthrough of your own. You might experience a release from a private burden or a debilitating secret. There can be circumstances occurring now that allow you to put a past matter that has had a strong hold on you, behind you. Let in the positive energy now, and make room for new opportunities.
