Sagittarians are cosmic archers: Bodacious, free-spirited, and perpetually curious. But when Venus goes retrograde in your psychic zone on Friday, October 5, you may find yourself adopting a moodier energy. In fact, you’ll be trading the spotlight for the shadows as you direct your gaze into the deep, dark crevices of your emotional universe. For the next few weeks, stay alert. You will be drawn to people who remind you of the past, but nostalgia isn’t always a good thing. Through November 16, you’ll be tempted to look backward, but keep pushing ahead, Sag babe. This too shall pass.
Lean into the comfort of friends during the new moon in Libra on Monday, October 8. This lunation activates the area of your chart linked to collaboration and teamwork, and under this sky, you’ll find yourself inspired by your extended community. This is an excellent day to launch new projects with your crew. Whether you’ve been contemplating starting a podcast or coven, your network will provide genuine support.
Things that are no longer serving your soul will soon be left in the dust.
In fact, this encouraging community will continue to sustain you through the next astrological season, as the sun glides into Scorpio on Tuesday, October 23. Scorpio is your neighboring sign: It comes right before your own in the zodiac. For the next few weeks, as the sun travels through this area, you’re preparing to begin a new cycle. Likewise, don’t be surprised if you find yourself in the process of purging. Things that are no longer serving your soul, like outdated thinking, toxic relationships, or even uninspiring jobs, will soon be left in the dust.
The full moon on Wednesday, October 24 will help align these emotional releases with your daily circumstances. In order to accommodate your emotional growth, you’ll need to revise your schedule. Calendar management isn’t just about coordinating conference calls, it’s also about aligning your input and output. Even for a mutable sign like you, change isn’t always easy. But think of it this way: In order for a plane to land, the tarmac must be clear. If your makeup application has been a bit turbulent, try Sephora Collection's Ready-in-5 Face Brush Set, which contains three miniature brush essentials for a seamless finish.
