Aries

The Astrologer Says:

Venus retrograde may have you doing some deep digging into the underbelly of your love life, Aries. Venus could ask you to go beyond the superficial aspects of love and relating and look at the areas that make you uncomfortable. Is it the merging of assets? The divulging of your deepest secrets to another person? Or having to admit that you’re just as flawed as the next person, yet still deserving of love, commitment, and forgiveness? Don’t be afraid of the dark. With a little courage, you can come out on the other side with more confidence and a deeper intimacy with those you love.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Let’s pretend we know what Venus retrograde is because we’ve read so much about it on Twitter. Now, remember to admit your flaws to people around because you’re still a real one at the end of the day. And yes, your beard not connecting is considered a flaw.

Leo

The Astrologer Says:

Venus going retrograde in your house of home and family may have you looking to do some renovations around the house and excavating old family hurts that need to be handled. Let this be the planning and revision phase, Leo, as beautification projects that occur during this period may have to be reworked later. (That lime green paint may have seemed like a good look at the time, but….) Allow yourself to be more vulnerable and look at where you can create an environment that allows you to be sensitive and open to receiving love that goes beyond the superficial.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

There’s goes Venus again. Personal sh*t will definitely be popping up and coming to a head this week, so please be prepared to deal with some BS. Oh, and start planning for the future. Whether it be for that new job you’re gonna go for at the top of the year or the Jordan Brand Holiday collection that you’re so desperate to cop.

Sagittarius

The Astrologer Says:

You may not be in the mood for public displays of affection or letting the object of your affection know how you feel, Centaur, and that’s cool. Venus will be backtracking through your house of the unconscious and unseen, making you more inclined to stay behind the scenes rather than make grand overtures of love for all to see. You may find yourself engaging in secret love affairs or find that meditating on your own spiritual needs is more nourishing than anything else.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Making out in public is fire, you know it is. Go for it. Just don’t do it at the bar around the corner from your job because then that person that you made out with that one time at the holiday part might walk by. And you don’t want Cheryl giving you the side eye every time you walk past her desk, do you?

Taurus

The Astrologer Says:

Loving and being loved could hit a snag during Venus’ backward movement through your house of relationships, Taurus, and since you’re also ruled by the Goddess of Love, you could take this to heart more than you usually would. Take note of who comes into the picture over the next few weeks as they can point out where love and relating to others can be improved upon. Breakups and the start of new relationships that occur during this time can be reversed, so take heart if you find yourself in a situation that you wish to change.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

That break up you’ve been considering? Do it. That new relationship you wanna hop into? Do it. Or wait until the holidays are over so you don’t have to worry about gift giving— it’s up to you.

Virgo

The Astrologer Says:

Ask yourself who and what makes your mind light up with excitement, Virgo. Venus retrograding in your house of communications will have you reconsidering the words and thoughts you use to express yourself and who you enjoy conversing with. Ease up on buying new books, phones, or vehicles, as you may find they weren’t worth the investment once Venus turns direct. You can also take this time to re-establish or smooth over communications with your siblings and close friends if there’s been discord in the past.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Diversify yo’ bonds. It’s time to start investing in things that will see a tangible return. And no that tangible return is not your friends complimenting you on all fresh ’fits you copped during that J. Crew sale. That cream cable knit sweater is fire though, king.

Capricorn

The Astrologer Says:

Don’t lose hope for the future, Capricorn. Venus retrograde may bring up some bleak feelings about love, friendship, and your hopes for what’s coming up next in your life, and that’s totally fine. Use this period as an opportunity to get clear about how doubt and lack of connection to those who share your vision can undermine your ability to go after your dreams. Go inward for a while. Reconnect with what you want for yourself and your community no matter how farfetched it may seem. Once Venus turns back around on November 16, you can get to work finding the tribe that will have your back and cheer you on in all of your endeavors.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Your life might be kinda wild until November 16, lol. Hold your head up, g.

Gemini

The Astrologer Says:

It’s time to reassess your work, Gemini. Venus retrograding in your house of health and daily routines could bring your attention to all the ways you could fall deeper in love with your creative process, your well-being, and the connections you have with your co-workers. Perhaps there’s a few changes that need to be made so you can get the most out of your everyday experience. Clean up your desk and calendar, be a little kinder to your colleagues, and rework the structures of your routines so that you can get more done with less fuss and drama.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Still at that dead-end job and trying to use all your free time to fulfill your creative endeavors? It may be time to set a date to quit. Stack up your bread until then, and then fly. I mean, unless that promotion is kinda lit, then maybe stay another six months.

Libra

The Astrologer Says:

With Venus (your ruling planet) going retrograde in your house of self worth and money, now is a good time to reevaluate your assets, Libra. Hold off on making any big luxury purchases until at least November 16, since chances are high that you won’t like it as much later as when you bought it. Get a handle on your finances by plugging all the spending leaks and noticing where going over budget may be filling an emotional and confidence void.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

You’re still going over budget, huh? No, you don’t need that Helmut Lang hoodie everyone is wearing or those Fear Of God boots. We promise you’ll survive the winter in your Timbs.

Aquarius

The Astrologer Says:

Take the next few weeks as an opportunity to refine the creativity you use in your career, Water Bearer. Venus in your house of reputation has been giving you extra grace and charm, but don’t lean too heavily upon that while she retraces her steps. Consider reaching out to a senior mentor who you can discuss your creative vision with while also strategizing how to implement ladder climbing plans in the future. Try to keep your wits about you, as it’s easy to fall for an authority figure during this transition—which can be fun in the moment, but complicated down the line.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

In the words of presunken place Kanye West, it’s time to make things happen “’Cause ain’t no to tuition for having no ambition/And ain’t no loans for sittin’ your ass at home.”

Cancer

The Astrologer Says:

If you’re in the mood for a little love or a little lust, Venus retrograde in your house of romance and creativity will lend you a hand. Just be mindful of who you meet as fated partners and even old flames from the past may make an appearance. Remember that fated doesn’t always mean forever, so try not to fall too hard and miss all the red flags on the way down. When you’re not out breaking hearts, try to dust off your old creative projects and give them a bit of juice, a little effort now could reinvigorate something you thought was long dead.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Creative juices? Lol. Go find your tribe and have some fun. Even if the bar isn’t your scene, you can definitely find someone who’s willing to go hiking or do some adventurous sh*t with you. Get lusty and live your best life.

Scorpio

The Astrologer Says:

Hold off on any changes to your look, Scorpio. With Venus turning retrograde in your house of self on October 5, you may find yourself reassessing your physical appearance and how your charm attracts (or doesn’t attract) what you desire. Pay attention to how you’re coming across to others as you may find yourself getting extra attention and praise from people who like what you’re putting down. Try not to rush into any new relationships as chances are high you may want to renegotiate the terms one Venus turns direct on November 16.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Just don’t do that thing where you have two braids on the top of your head and the sides faded, because…just…no. This is a very critical time, so don’t do anything much for another month or so.

Pisces

The Astrologer Says:

Venus will be spending extra time getting you clear on what it is that you love about the wider world. What do you believe in? What do you have faith in? How can you broaden your horizons and expand your mind. Love can show up in the form of a lover from overseas or a culture that’s completely foreign to your own that forces you to reconsider your global perspective. Try to be wise about dropping large amounts of money on long distance travel over the next few weeks as there could be unexpected snags in planning that leave you feeling broke.

The BRUHstrologer Says:

Expand your horizons and learn new things. Just don’t expand your horizons like Kanye West.
