The Sun lights up your 11th house this month, bringing with it a flurry of social and networking opportunities. Event invites (live and online), will likely roll in, bringing fantastic networking potential and new or deepened friendships and group affiliations. It is a great time to be out (or in) and connecting with others. Although some key new relationships may come in at this time, the continued retrograde theme will likely bring many a ‘blast from the past’ and the draw to connect with people you haven’t talked to in ages may be stronger than usual. Be very aware that new people that come in now in the context of romance or business (or other partnership connections) could either have the connections rapidly lose steam, not be stable, or not be forthcoming with important information relevant to your agreements or plans. Proceed cautiously. Unless the meeting occurs in the latter part of the month! This is a time when many a new and important connection is likely to come in.
This transit also favors group and team activities of all kinds. Whether you are the leader of the group or an invitee, power is in numbers for you this month. Getting to better understand social media as it relates to you or your business interests is a great idea right now.
Checking up on internet and communication security and privacy is a great idea now. You may be surprised to see what information is public that you don’t want to be that way. Appropriately adjusting privacy settings and securing document and device back-up are top on my list for you now.
This is a great time to evaluate and appropriately tweak your relationship with technology and social media. There may be opportunities to address issues with your relationship to friends, social circles, and social media at this time and you may decide to take a break from some of it. This is a great time for that but do stay open to other ways Spirit is trying to connect you with others at this time and relationships or other connections from the past will likely come up as a greater focus.
Community events and projects may also take center stage. This is a fantastic time to connect with people with whom you find resonance and discuss the possibilities of working together for a shared vision in the future. You may notice ambitions continue getting stronger.
For the earlier part of the month it still may be best to try to leave as much flexibility in the arrangements and commitments. Towards the end of the month and into January and the first half of February the energy will be fantastic for agreements and commitments of all kinds.
Issues and opportunities from the past will continue to be a theme. Things that come in during the earlier part of this month have more of a likelihood of being shorter-term, a segue to something else, or something new that needs ideas or something else from the past to work with.
When it comes to love, beauty, or money, Venus is direct but the post-transit shadow period stretches until December 18. The odds are greater that people will be having money issues come up so that makes it more likely that they will not be seeing clearly when it comes to their money or item of value. You can benefit from this by getting a great deal just take caution to not be that person that sold something of value for far lower than it is worth out of desperation or desire to ‘move on from’ it.
The retrograde energies can also bring in amazing things from past work so look for magical manifestations like this throughout this month.
If a decision has to be made about love or business opportunities that come in now or for arrangements and agreements that have to be made this month, try to leave as much flexibility in arrangements to account for the changes that will very likely come soon, and know that the plans you make now may be shorter term than expected, or efforts may get ‘tabled’ for a time, losing steam, or be missing relevant information. The end of the month will carry better opportunities for more firm commitments.
If a decision or agreement has to be made earlier in the month, consider a ‘bridge’ decision or agreement, where you create a temporary agreement that will be reconsidered and shifted later.

Also check out my comprehensive blog series Venus Retrograde through the Signs/Houses. Venus will be retrograde from October 5, 2018 – November 16, 2018 with the pre-transit shadow period starting September 4, 2018 and post-shadow transit stretching until December 18, 2018.

The January eclipses will likely start to make themselves known for many with big news of major changes afoot. Manifestations for eclipses often start to roll in 4-6 weeks (sometimes more) before the actual eclipses. If something notable comes in and have to be decided upon, lean toward the second half of the month if possible, unless it is for something short-term but even still, look at paperwork and agreements very carefully as the retrograde energies still dominating most of December could likely factor in.
This area accentuated for you this month rules inventions and forward-thinking/futuristic ideas. Write any great ideas down, and if ideas come back up front the past, pay extra attention to those.
Internet-based projects are in this sector, too, and many an online connection will pop up. Stay tuned into intuition to make sure your project or decision is properly placed. We will be still in more of a backward and inward moving flow until mid-late December. The end of the month, all of January, and the first half of February are amazing for major launches of every kind.
The 11th house is also the house of your BIG DREAMS, not the ones you have at night, but the ones you have for the future. When the Sun lights up this sector of your chart, it is called your Granddaddy Power Period and you get 40 wishes! (according to brilliant astrologer, Jan Spiller)
Write them down, say them out loud, and most importantly, FEEL them as if they have already come true. You can create your wish something like this ~ I am so glad that this ….. (add in the thing you desire) has come to fruition in a magical way. This puts the focus on the wish ALREADY HAVE COME TRUE which helps your subconscious mind to create it so 🙂
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Pisces Horoscope is more relevant for you.
