This is a busy time full of astrological events that will greatly affect our relationships with others. We are coming off an intense past week, with a new moon in Libra, Libra sun ingress, fall equinox, and Mercury’s entry into sexy Scorpio. All of these energies have set us up to want to forge new bonds in our lives and intensify or destroy the existing ones. The love energy continues to surround us as another” relationship friendly” placement in the sky shows up Monday, September 29. Venus, the jewel of the universe, and the planet most closely associated with relationships, enters her own sign of Libra. This will add to our desires to seek out others with the same tastes and goals as ourselves. This will lighten the mood for relationships that just need a little push, and will usher in a new cycle for those just in the process of hooking up. However, those couples (or groups) that are not working, and do not have the right elements to be functional may not make it through this period.
There will be a lot of jealousy and passion. With Mercury (communications) in Scorpio we will want to know where we stand with our friends and partners, and who or what is standing in the light and casting shadows on our partnerships. Mercury turns retrograde Saturday October 4, 2014 and this will send our thoughts back to the past and will cause us to examine the ghosts of relationship past. This may bring out some of our old stalkers and some of our own shadows, so self control will be necessary this upcoming weekend.
