If only getting strong(er) and fit(ter) could “just happen” with minimal effort. The good news? A “double-dare-ya” prod from taskmaster Saturn to the ego-supporting Sun in your wellness zone on Monday, October 7, might get you back to the gym, yoga studio or bike trail or eating a plant-based diet. While the DESIRE is there, your comfort-seeking sign can struggle to lunge out of a cozy cocoon and into “sweat-your-prayers” mode.
When tough-love Saturn blasts the Sun with a dose of self-discipline, the rubber will meet the road. Show the world—or just yourself—what you’re really made of. Set some concrete goals and create a timeline to reach them (one at a time, please). Once you begin to see results, your Bullish determination will kick in, and you’ll be unstoppable! Start off slowly, but plan to take it to the next level by the end of the month.
Aim for realistic adjustments that you can sustain. If you can, phase out alcohol, sugar and gluten products for a few weeks. With no one pressuring you, you might just acknowledge how much better you feel as a result. Build in (healthy) mini rewards for when you hit each milestone. Pro tip: Think of things that support your new lifestyle, like upgrading your produce to all organic, or perhaps splurging on one pricey-but-worth-it blazer or pair of boots. Now, that’s a Taurean win-win!
Relationship reboot! On Tuesday, your ruler, amorous Venus, cartwheels into Scorpio and your dynamic-duos zone until November 1. Since the love planet insists on peace, love and understanding, any union that isn’t operating smoothly will be up for review and revision. Whether you need to renegotiate some terms in a professional or creative alliance or you and boo aren’t seeing eye-to-eye on a certain subject, you may have to take the lead in righting things.
Some partnerships will experience dramatic plot twists and yet others might plunge into the emo depths by taking a significant next step, possibly involving ice or ink. The seventh house is about committed connections, and with Venus here, you’ll crave more assurance and exclusivity. That said, you get to write the rules for what true partnership looks like. As the cosmic creatrix, Venus loves to mix things up, which might inspire a little playful experimentation. As long as both (or all) parties agree, feel free to innovate. Wherever you’re at on the “happily ever after” scale, remember that all relationships involve compromise, which is not always the easiest thing for your obstinate sign.
On Sunday, the only Aries full moon of the year powers up your twelfth house of closure, healing and transitions, laying the groundwork for you to do the thing that many Bulls feel is next to impossible: letting something (or someone) go without anger, regret or firing off a single poison arrow. It may be helpful to reframe this as not “loss” but rather the removal of a huge obstacle that’s been blocking your forward progress.
Take time today or over the next two weeks to really envision (with your inner eyes and all of your senses) how liberated and empowered you’ll be once this is gone from your life. Concentrate only on the benefits, and trust that you WILL get into something so much better. And remember, you’re hardly alone. Turn to your trusted inner circle for support, and from those who’ve been down this very path before, for sage advice. You’ve got this!
