Your sign is all about transformation, and that’s exactly what’s going to happen when beauty planet Venus starts her 40-day-and-40-night retrograde phase in your sign on the 5th. If you’ve been feeling weird in your own skin, this is your cosmic opportunity to give both yourself and your life a major makeover. It’s not the best time for big cosmetic commitments, so save the tattoo appointment for next month. What *will* be amazing is revamping your skin-care routine, cleaning out your closet (both literally and figuratively!), or buying vintage! The Libra new moon in your spirituality zone on the 8th helps you see the bigger lesson behind your outward changes. Once that’s clear, you feel totally comfortable stepping into the spotlight, which you’ll be called to do once Mercury and the sun move into your sign on the 9th and 23rd, respectively. On the 24th, the Taurus full moon illuminates a better way to communicate with your lovers, friends, and colleagues. Finally, on the 31st, Venus retrograde backtracks into your spooky twelfth house of dreams and vision, setting the perfect tone for Halloween!
