Partnerships will trigger key issues this month as your amorous ruling planet, Venus, transits the primary relationship houses of your chart. She is in steamy Scorpio and your 2nd House of Others when October begins. This can attract intense, perhaps even controlling, individuals. Yet your desire to be taken by someone else's passion is understandable and exciting.
If you're single and looking, sending strong signals of your interest in someone should be done discreetly. If you already have a partner, you can get more out of that alliance when you are both willing to dig deeper to give and receive what you need. It's possible, though, that you may consider looking elsewhere for the passion that you want.
The stakes could grow even higher when Venus shifts into risk-taking Sagittarius and your 8th House of Intimacy on October 7. Restlessness can spur you to take chances in the pursuit of someone new. Stretching the boundaries of your current partnership (if you have one) may seem a little dangerous, but it is much safer than standing still and having attraction wane due to boredom.
An exciting event or individual could trigger a breakthrough and lead to fresh forms of fun when Venus trines innovative Uranus on October 16. A change of attitude, approach and style will spice up your personal life, so don't be afraid to alter the ways in which you make connections. On October 22, the Sun enters Scorpio and your 7th House of Relationships, raising your consciousness about partnerships and perhaps pulling a powerful person into your orbit.
