Zeroing in on your deepest desires and making a play for them can feel liberating and empowering around October 16 when the new moon falls in your eighth house of emotional bonds and sexual intimacy. You’ll be reflecting on the ways your closest relationships fulfill your needs—or not—and thinking on the best, most productive ways to express your feelings. This can be a lovely time to trust your intuition—not to mention a moment that’s ripe for relationship-bolstering.
And on October 18, romantic Venus in your seventh house of partnership opposes dreamy Neptune in your sign, creating confusion with a dear friend, loved one, or significant other. It’ll be hard to key in on facts, so wait until you have more clarity before jumping to any concrete conclusions.
