Your Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, October 8th
Venus enters your work and health sector today, dear Aries, and will transit this area of your chart until November 8th (for the coming month). While Venus moves out of a harmonious position vis a vis your sign, this is a very useful cycle for bringing harmony to your daily life, including your working environment. The urge to restore balance to working relationships and order or beauty to your daily routines and environment is strong now. This can also be a time of increased social opportunities through your work or through your daily routines, or while pursuing health goals. It might be a good time for partnering up to get work done or to pursue fitness programs with Venus and Mars in this sector of your chart, and eventually aligning, as well as for meeting friends or even a lover who has similar goals or work.
After an extended stay in your solar fourth house, dear Taurus, Venus (your ruler) moves into harmony with your sign. The sector of home and family is a very introspective, even self-protective, sector, and this may have kept you a little more withdrawn or quiet than usual. Now and until November 8th, Venus transits your fun, playful, and creative solar fifth house. You are now more willing to take some personal risks with your heart, personality, and creativity. You can be a little flirty now, and it’s a time when your natural charm comes shining through for all to see.

Venus will stay in this sector of your chart for one month, until November 8th.

Venus has been spending an unusually long time in the sign just behind yours, dear Virgo.
