Love should be moving in the right direction (or staying in the right place) for you this month. You have two major planetary allies that are useful for attracting someone new or getting more out of a current relationship.
The fun starts with alluring Venus in your passionate sign until October 7. Her presence in your 1st House of Appearance is likely to make you more desirable to others. Of course, it helps if you're pleased with yourself, but even if you're overly aware of your own flaws, others should be drawn to the power and depth of your personality.
Possible problems with this transit, though, include jealousy and attracting people who aren't all that interesting to you. The magnetism of Venus is a plus, but an even more dynamic pattern begins when the Sun enters Scorpio on October 22. This powerful star's presence in your sign provides courage and creativity that will warm up your personal life.
Taking the lead in relationships makes sense during the following 30 days, as you're guided by desire to confidently go after who and what you want. Conversations could be complicated, though, as retrograde Mercury, the communication planet, joins strict Saturn on October 29.
This is a time for deep reflection and serious words. Trying to cover up doubts or fears should be avoided, because burying issues now can make things more difficult later. Accountability is necessary, but don't load up on blame, guilt or shame when a patient and mature talk could help to untangle even the messiest situation.
