Horoscopes Friday 5th October 2018
Aries 21 March - 20 April
Are there any niggling issues in a key relationship, whether social, romantic or business orientated? With lovely Venus rewinding from today and forging an angle with feisty Mars, there may be some strands that need untangling. Even if it seems urgent, it may be better to bide your time, as over coming weeks things could change, and possibly for the better.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
A side of you may be ready to rush ahead in an impulsive way regarding a relationship, goal or career matter. However, Venus your ruler is in a unique position, firstly as she turns retrograde today in your relationship zone and secondly because of her angle to Mars. Whatever you think might happen may not, so there is no point in hurrying when patience will serve you best.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
You may have some brilliant ideas that can further your goals and lead to new opportunities. Yet a complicated blend of energies could mean that other things need attending to before you can go ahead. Certain matters may require finishing or perhaps a radical purge of activities that no longer serve need grappling with. Attend to these first and then embrace new plans.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
Whatever happens between you and another, don't immediately presume that the relationship has become unstable. It may be an opportunity to recalibrate your connection, enabling you to move forward on a more honest and authentic note. This can take time though, and with feeling orientated Venus rewinding in your sector of romance, allowing for this can be best.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
As Venus enters her rewind in your home zone from today, the coming weeks can see you becoming more aware of your core needs. This can be an opportunity to consider what is meaningful to you and what may be more fleetingly of interest. You may be surprised at how someone close has influenced you and that reclaiming time for what feels good to you can be a relief.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
An edgy aspect between tactful Venus and stirring Mars, could spotlight a tendency to micro manage activities and even others, to maintain the semblance of control. This could backfire though, as a plan can lack sparkle and the creative touch if it is kept within a rigid framework. Be open to others and the potential for the unexpected, as the weeks ahead can encourage both.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
As sweet Venus your personal planet, turns retrograde until mid-November in your sector of values, you may find yourself faced with a dilemma. Should you go further with a romance, friendship or collaboration, or keep things light-hearted and noncommittal. Your horoscope reveals that connections of all kinds can be under the spotlight, but most important is knowing the true cost of being involved.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
With the Moon in a prominent sector, something you have kept discreetly to yourself could come into the open. And you might even wonder why it has been contentious for so long, as others' reactions can be neutral. Nevertheless, it can feel out of character Scorpio, with your more guarded side undermined. As Venus rewinds in your sign though, the benefits can become clearer.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
It can be difficult to know exactly what you want or even why you might want it. Desires can pulse and claim attention and then just as quickly fade, leaving you none the wiser. This is a time to take a thoughtful approach to relationships or bonds, as in a few weeks you might wonder what you were thinking. This is more a time to learn about yourself from the inside out.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
How many of the people on your contact list have you been in touch with lately? We're not talking about old friends who swing in and out of your life in a perfectly cozy arrangement, but those who are sugar sweet when they want something and coldly indifferent when they don't. It is these that you may want to delete, especially if you have felt miffed by them for some time.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
The way others perceive you can be on your mind now and over coming weeks. With image-conscious Venus rewinding from today in a prominent sector, you may be aware of how popularity can ebb and flow according to people's needs and tastes. Even so, as long as you are true to yourself, you will always attract those who deeply appreciate what you have to offer.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
If someone you thought of as a friend seems to display less than sterling qualities, you may wonder if your canny sixth sense has deserted you. It could be that a slither of Virgo, your opposite sign, has influenced you and is expecting perfection. You understand the frailties of the human soul, and giving this person the benefit of the doubt could make this bond stronger.
