Venus Waves Goodbye to Scorpio

This is the last day of the current Venus transit in Scorpio and the perfect time for an assessment of your heart. Is your heart full of joy, or does it seem to be lacking in what’s needed for happiness? In other words, do you feel whole-hearted or hole-hearted? Set an intention for your heart for when Venus moves into expansive Sagittarius.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your life is like a train. People can board or not, but your itinerary is in place either way. Your plans don’t allow you to wait for people who aren’t yet sure of what they want to do.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). We all make illogical choices from time to time. You’ve been there, and so you don’t mind hearing someone else’s unreasonable tale. You know that you don’t need to agree with someone to hear them out.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You wouldn’t ask directions from someone who looks like a tourist, and you won’t take instruction from someone who hasn’t dealt with the problem you’re facing. Ask for credentials.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). People appreciate what they earn. That’s why it’s not productive to give away too much for free. Freebies won’t be used well. Let people pay you in some way, either with their attention, time or money.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You are worthy of love and happiness. You know this down deep, but sometimes you have to remind yourself to avoid accepting much less from life than you deserve.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Unfortunately, you can’t ignore bad feelings without also ignoring good ones. Bringing your attention to an issue may be painful, but it will be worthwhile because there is joy there, too.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Everyone wants to get noticed in a social setting once in a while. You’ll be in a position to bring attention to a person who doesn’t often take the spotlight. This is an act of great love.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don’t avoid hard work, but if there’s an easier way to do the same job, why knock yourself out? There are better ways to spend your mental and physical energy than needlessly doing things the hard way.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You need to feel special — everyone does. Your knowledge of this need will help you get what you want. You’ll make someone feel irreplaceable, and that person in turn will reinforce why you are so special.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll put your heart on the line and state what you want from a relationship when you really don’t know whether the other person will be amenable at all. This takes guts.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You don’t love or even like people for strategic reasons, and yet sometimes relationships just work out to be mutually beneficial. Your experience combined with another person’s resources will be a winning combination.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’d like to think that your accomplishments are unique and that you’ve done what few, if any, would have been able to do. That’s what keeps you so ambitious.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 6). Freshen up your image this month, and then extend the makeover to your domestic environment in November. The area of finances is in need of reorganization, and if you get everything in line by the end of November, you’ll be sitting pretty for a windfall in December. Loyal love and true friends are the treasures of 2014. Aries and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 48, 39, 19 and 41.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Are you lucky in love? If you can’t say that you are, this week could change all of that for you, with Venus as the big scene-stealer of the heavens. Then again, there is very little else going on to pull focus from the love goddess as she revels in her new station of Sagittarius. In this expansive, exciting realm, Venus is touched with the good luck for which the archer is famous.

Expanding your love life doesn’t necessarily have to do with dating or meeting new potential partners. It could have nothing to do with romance at all. Rather, the next four weeks will shine a light on the many ways you might invite more love into your life. This love could come in the form of compassion for humanity at large or greater patience with your children or spouse. This love could come in the form of self-love and taking better care of your own needs. Or this love might include activities with friends that increase the flow of sharing and good will.

Love is the one commodity we really can’t get too much of. While adding more money to a situation could create problems, adding more love can only diminish problems. Big hearts have better perspectives.
