In case you haven't heard, Venus — planet of flirtations, love, gorgeousness, and luxury — stationed retrograde last week. Spiraling through the dark, passionate, and jealous sign of Scorpio, this retrograde packs a deadly sting that will radiate throughout your entire life. While this will certainly be a journey through the shadows of your heart, that doesn't mean you also don't have countless reasons to enjoy it, especially because as of October 8, 2018, this will be the best week for these zodiac signs: Gemini, Libra, and Capricorn. Don't forget that you'll get to revel in the joy just as intensely if your rising sign happens to fall here as well.
As always, the cosmos affect each of us differently. It all depends on the astrological placements of your birth chart and how evolved you are in your spiritual and physical journey. While one cosmic event may inspire dread and insecurity in one person, it could have the opposite effect of making someone else feel ecstatic and in love. And, despite what astrology can tell us about the universe, let's not forget that you always have free will. Even when the cosmos are putting you through the wringer, it's you who chooses how to react to what the universe is giving you. Keep all of this in mind, because Libra season is bearing so much reward for these zodiac signs.
