I'm Aliza Kelly Faragher, your resident astrologer, serving up your monthly horoscope. Read what your sign's 2018 horoscope predictions have in store for you, or check out the Virgo personality profile.
Virgos are more impacted by Mercury retrograde than most, but that doesn’t mean you’re not also influenced by other cosmic reversals. On Friday, October 5, Venus — the planet that governs love, beauty, and money — begins its 40-day, 40-night backward spin in Scorpio.
As it cruises across your communication zone, Venus will blur the lines between friend and lover. You’ll be wearing rose-colored glasses, but try to see past the fantasy. People come into our lives for all kinds of reasons, and just because you have good banter doesn’t mean you’re soulmates. Maintain your perspective, Virgo darling.
Did you know that your sign is associated with daytime magick? Through practice, you can learn how to harness your earthy, grounded nature to turn your dreams into reality. On Monday, October 8, a new moon in Libra activates the area of your chart connected to personal finances, and since this lunation corresponds with beginnings, this is an excellent day for a money manifestation ritual.
Pay extra close attention to messages you receive from your immediate community.
Turn off technology, light up a few candles, and focus on your intention by visualizing your desires. When you’re ready, write an abundance check for yourself: pay to the order of your name, the amount paid in full, signed The Law of Abundance. Put the check in a special place and enjoy the incredible power of this 28-day lunar cycle. By the new moon in Scorpio on November 7, your pockets will definitely be lined with some extra cash.
Speaking of magick, Scorpio season begins on Tuesday, October 23 when the sun glides into this elusive water sign. Over the next few weeks, pay extra close attention to messages you receive from your immediate community. Your keen attention to detail will you serve you well, as your peers will be throwing a lot of information at you. Your head will be spinning from all the gossip, so be sure to carve out time to process all the stimuli.
Fortunately, any and all bullshit will be exposed on Wednesday, October 24, when the full moon in Taurus casts an honest light in the darkness. This lunation will help you remember that all of the whispers, rumors, and hearsay are ultimately all irrelevant. Further, focusing too much on others’ problems will only detract you from reaching your long-term goals — it’s very counterproductive, Virgo darling. Decompress with Mount Lai De-Puffing Jade Facial Roller, the perfect tool to cultivate a cool, effortless calm.
