The Sun rolls through your 2nd house this month bringing great opportunities for making more money.  Earned income often sees a boost during this transit. If you have money-making ideas or anything related to business goals, this could be a great time to take steps along your continuum but also honor the flow and if there seem to be lots of obstacles to your goal, it may prove prudent to hold off.  Some important decisions and actions may be better off waiting until the end of December when the retrograde cycle has passed. Business opportunities are likely to come up and other support for moving forward, including your own drive and follow-through are more likely be strong now but some competing transits are occurring that could still be calling certainty into question.  Follow your flow.  If you are feeling ready to be productive AND your efforts are seeming to go without blockage, then pull through what works, trying to save the BIG launches for end of December or January.  If something COMES TO YOU and has to be moved on asap, it could be perfect to move forward.  Bridge agreements or temporary arrangements could help to move through the rest of the transit when more clarity about the long-term agreements may be better discussed.

Doing things that are re-do’s or other things focused on the past, like bringing back a service or product you offered in the past is better supported than new launches for the most part now.  Clients from the past could come back in a big way. Going back to previous clients may prove more fruitful than too much focus on new clients now.  Things you worked on in the past may start to work out in miraculous ways now.

Issues and opportunities from the past will continue to be a theme and things that come in this month still 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.

Finances could definitely see some improvements but often spending increases during this transit, too. So while you see the increase in the amount coming it will likely translate to an increase in the amount going out, especially if you don’t specifically make an effort to not have your spending rise with your income. If you put aside a certain percentage of your new increased income,  you will likely be glad you did.

When it comes to love, beauty, or money, Venus is still officially retrograde until mid-November with the post-shadow period going until mid-December. 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.

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.

If a decision or agreement has to be made consider a ‘bridge’ decision or agreement, where you create a temporary agreement that will be reconsidered and shifted later.

Overall try it is usually indicated to try to avoid big and binding/long-term decisions in money and love if possible unless it is out of your hands and coming to you without your decision.  There are always exceptions and caveats to the general guidelines for these transits. To see more about the implications and manifestations of Venus retrograde, check out my extensive video on the topic. 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 urge to buy luxury or more expensive items may be strong this month and if you can really afford it, it could be fine to make big purchases, but make sure to not take on more than you can afford, also factoring in the Venus retrograde transit and also Mercury retrograde tends to make purchases have a shorter self-life than expected.  This month and beyond may be rich with opportunities for smokin’ hot deals as others experience slow downs and look to unload expensive commitments or items of value.  The major caution of this time is to not overspend or overcommit but if you are in the business of or the position to capitalize from the many deals for purchases that will likely show up, then follow your flow with this.  Also, if you have to make a major purchase and it is not a notable deal really make sure it is what it seems and that you are in a position to take it on.

The Sun in this sector also brings opportunities to re-evaluate your value system. What is most important to you in your life?  Is the amount of time you are spending on those most important things in the right ratio compared to their importance to you? Asking bigger questions about things like this now will lead to valuable insights.

To see an extensive list of things I love from now through Mid-December 2018 when the personal planet retrogrades dominate see my blog, Maximizing Personal Planet Retrogrades.

The sector of your chart highlighted now also has to do with sustainability on any and all levels. Asking questions about your imprint and sustainability of your lifestyle is well-favored now. Taking measures to conserve or live lighter and more simply may be topics that come into the forefront.

It is interesting that this same house that rules luxury items also rules simple living. Rolling around in the possibilities of this spectrum is what is being brought up now.  Some who have been living with a lot of excess may be drawn to pare down, and some who have been living with the bare essentials may be drawn to expand their interactions with the material realm.  Either way that feels true to you is perfect 🙂

Your self-value translated out into the material realm is also a major topic with this transit. Your earning power may be your most valuable asset.  It may be time to think about how to invest in your earning power as your greatest investment.

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 Scorpio Horoscope is more relevant for you.
