You may feel like you're going to the University of Relationships
this month because you can learn more in the next six weeks than you
have in the past six years. The reason is the retrograde turn of the
love planet Venus on October 8. This occurs in the intensely passionate
sign Scorpio in your 9th House of Higher Learning and Faraway Places.
Venus will be in reverse until November 18, bringing buried emotional
issues back to life for better and for worse. If bad memories linger
and limit your faith in relationships, this is obviously not helpful.
However, if you can extract the essence of what's made you feel happy in
the past, this can help you find similar joy in the future.
Additionally, reexamining what didn't work for you before can give you
some vital information about what to change. While there may be someone
who can help you learn, it's got to be a neutral party, not your
present, ex or potential new lover.
The Sun enters Scorpio and your 9th house on October 23, increasing
interest in people from other countries or cultures. This transit
(lasting a month) is also favorable for making connections during travel
or educational experiences. Yet notice if you're attracted to a person
who reminds you of someone from your past. Don't assume that this will
produce the same outcome. But the real question is whether you've
learned anything that will change the story. Emotional education isn't
easy but is worth its weight in gold.
