On 22 October, we experience a Venus Star Point, which marks the beginning of a journey into love.
Venus is the brightest and most brilliant planet in the galaxy, and in astrology we look to this twinkling planet to find love, pleasure and joy in our lives—as well as partnerships.
This year brings two Venus Star Points. The first occurred on 8 January, during Venus retrograde in Capricorn. At that time, we were completing an eight-year Venus cycle (every Venus cycle lasts eight years, with the halfway point bringing something extra juicy to our love lives) and reflecting upon the past. It was a time to understand how far we had come and what we had learned from love. The Venus Star Point on 22 October is the beginning of a new romantic expedition that begins the eight-year vision (with the high points occurring in four years).
If you’re single and looking for love, then 22 October is an optimal time to start putting yourself out there on dating apps, asking friends to set you up on dates and to start manifesting a relationship. You may discover the person you’re longing for has been right in front of you all along. If you’re in an existing partnership, it’s time to decide what the future holds. A recommitment is possible, as well as a second honeymoon.
We can expect to experience more intense and desirable romantic connections. We will want to jump head-first into potential love without thinking. It will be an exhilarating and passionate way to experience partnerships—plus we will come to experience more heartfelt emotions than we have felt before. One thing is certain: love will begin to deepen.
Here’s how 22 October’s Venus Star Point will affect your zodiac sign.
More often than not, you put the needs of others before your own. Therefore, it’s important for you to take a big step back and let your significant other prove that they are worthy of your time and be the one to work hard to gain your affection and adoration.
An indulgent dinner for two will set the mood during the Venus Star Point for some serious loving and tenderness. Have a few glasses of wine, a deep conversation and sensual massage to fully set the vibe with the one you love right now.
To strengthen the bond between you and your significant other, find a creative project that you can both participate in. You’ll make a lot of fun memories along the way that will make for brilliant stories to tell close friends and family.
You’re in the mood to get cosy at home with the person you love the most. The only caveat is that you may find yourself disconnecting from the rest of the world. Try to maintain a balance between your romantic partnership and friends in order to sustain all of your relationships.
You may be on the receiving end of a sweet text, love letter or even flowers from a secret admirer or partner. Watch how others treat you because they’ll be in the mood to spoil you. Even the slightest kind deed could be an indication of deeper feelings lurking below the surface.
Your idealistic nature will urge you to forgive and forget major personality traits in others that may not be up to your standards. Don’t ignore red flags when they appear. Remember that you are deserving of being treated like the amazing person you are by everyone you know.
Be kind to yourself and others. Take time out of your busy daily schedule and use it to unwind and relax with your significant other or crush. This is a moment in which you can both destress together to forge a deeper intimate connection.
Harmony, compassion and peace with others is of the utmost importance to you at the moment. If you approach those you care about in a respectful and caring manner, odds are that you’ll be able to create the relationship you crave due to the strong foundation you’re setting in place.
It’s time to manifest your dream partnership. Write down your love goals on a piece of paper and set them in motion by actively speaking the words out loud. When you say it, the intention will be set and the love you desire will come into your life and bloom.
A professional connection could lead you towards the love of your life. If you are already in a committed relationship, then you may consider starting a business with your partner. The couple who plays together, often stays together—a sentiment which applies to career opportunities as well as more jovial situations.
You’re looking for a partnership in which you can exercise autonomy while being committed. The good news is that you won’t have to look far to find a person who sparks your interest. Odds are that they are someone you’ve known for a long time.
Your emotions are running deeper and hotter than ever, urging you to speak out about your desires. Don’t hold back from letting your innermost sentiments be known. You may surprise yourself and others with what you have to say, which could strengthen one of your relationships.
