This month brings the urge to merge. Win-win outcomes and advancements on joint projects are a wonderful outcome of this time especially IF you do the work to make it work
As the Sun moves through your sector of “other peoples money” things like inheritances, sweepstakes, lotto or other winnings, credit, debt, loans, venture capital, spousal money, family money, shared money etc. are all more likely to be brought into the forefront. Money and other support can come from anywhere and is more likely to present at this time.
Issues and opportunities from the past will continue to be a theme. Things that come in this month still have more of a likelihood of being shorter-term, a segway to something else, or something new that needs ideas or something else from the past to work with.
There may be opportunities to collaborate with or empower others at this time. Since we still have strong retrograde energy present this month, follow the flow (don’t force things) and 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. Also, major decisions made now or previously may be tested over the rest of the year.
Mars retrograde post transit period will finally end October 10.
When it comes to love, beauty, or money, Venus retrograde energies are strong throughout this month and will likely carry relevance. 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.
Unresolved issues regarding self-esteem, love relationships, and finances are likely to come up. Alternatively, Venus retrograde can bring back esteem, money, or love from the past. During the Venus retrograde transit, more care, consideration, and prudence must be given to matters involving love and money.
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 infomation.
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 it usually indicated to try to avoid big and binding/long-term decisions in money and love if possible.

Topics of psychology, astrology, sex, power, and esoteric subjects can light up bright this month. It is a fantastic time to read, watch, or listen to a fantastic mystery, including ancient mysteries. It is also a great time to explore and prepare your space for greater intimacy.
Lovers may return from the past as may business collaborators. For those in attached romantic relationships, issues or awesomeness are equally likely to spring back into currency. There are also potentials for new love or business opportunities especially towards the beginning of the month. Definitely be extra aware of anything new with love or money that comes up now and until mid December.
Dramatic spiritual breakthroughs are common during this transit. The more you use the energy for going deep, the more riches you will find.
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 be relevant for you later in the month, for earlier in the month you may find that the Aries Horoscope is more relevant for you
