October 8-13

With the zodiac formally in a relational Libra stellium, I was asked when I’d be able to write more on self-love. Which is a totally viable point. “Beware the naked man offering you a shirt” is another way of saying self-love qualifies connection. Or as a problematic fav Rupaul asks “How are you going to love someone if you can’t love yourself?” 

The Full Moon in Aries this weekend will help us understand the foundation of worth and deserving values when we say, “I will, I want, I love,” It’s the “I” that declares the verb. More on that below.

Since relationship dynamics are about to get much, much deeper when Venus enters Scorpio on Tuesday where intimacy, loyalty, and meaningful sexual experiences rise to the top of the Universe’s itinerary. Apparently, Venus isn’t happy in Scorpio but I don’t love the whole “exalted, fall, dignified, glorified,” whatever-the-fuck way we minimize the value of each zodiac sign. Venus in Scorpio could theoretically allow the zodiac to understand the deeper dimensions of the existential world so that when we get intimate, we reframe “intimacy” into what Esther Perel says “into-me-you-see.” How do you let someone see your innermost dreams, vulnerabilities, anxieties, pleasures, and joys? I think Venus in Scorpio will show you how.

While Venus in Scorpio searches for Truth, sometimes the Truth is: we know we don’t know. So be prepared for for a romantic surprise on Saturday when Venus in Scorpio opposes unpredictable Uranus in Taurus.  Uncertainty, breaking routine, mystery, and anticipation are all part of the erotic and romantic spaces. They’re uncomfortable but necessary to grapple with in order to engage with these experiences beautifully. 

Sunday’s Full Moon in dynamic and powerful Aries allows us to own our wanting, own our worth, and claim our deserving entitlement for the things we love. Aries energy helps us burn away our fears, comparison stories, scarcity ideas, and insecurities into the Mars fire. If you let this Full Moon burn away what prevents you from showing up in the world with more grandeur, passion, and enthusiasm, you’ll be standing on your self-love so securely. You’ll be half a step ahead towards materializing your dreams and strengthening your romantic relationships. Let go of stories that stop you from falling in love again like it’s the first time.
