Anyone who has been reading this calendar during the last two days has been alerted — ahead of time — to today’s official station and shift from direct to retrograde motion by Venus at 11 degrees of Scorpio (12:06pm). Be aware that this pause in the zodiac by Venus occurs during an 11 hour void-of-course moon cycle that begins at 4:35am and ends at 4:20pm when the lunar orb enters earthy Virgo. Focus attention on all the following key themes associated with Venus in order to extract the best results from this infrequent turnaround by Earth’s soul-sister in the solar system: love, emotional sensitivity, the arts and architecture, social activities, personal money matters and savings, beauty and magnetic attractions, value systems, harmony and balance in key relationships, alchemical-type reactions and changes in romance. (Venus will remain in reverse until November 16 when it once again resumes direct motion at 26 degrees of Libra.) This month’s transit of Virgo moon can really ratchet-up your organizational and efficiency skill-sets as a grand triangle occurs in earth signs via the moon’s superlative trines with unconventional Uranus in Taurus (6:27pm) and discipline-reinforcing Saturn in Capricorn (9:44pm). Mercury and Vesta offer additional good news if you can tune into the higher meaning of investment strategies as they connect via an inspirational, 72-degree rapport (10:08pm).
