Venus, the planet of love and money, enters fiery Sagittarius today. This time around, the tender planet won’t act normally because will align with the south node of destiny on October 9 and be tormented by elusive Neptune on the twenty-sixth. You could feel a bit lovesick, lost in your emotions, and uncertain about the future of your relationships or finances at this time. The karmic lesson here is pushing you to change the way you commit to others and get a handle on how you spend your money.
When Venus shifts into Sagittarius and aligns with those planets, a lot of things can happen. First, it can affect our spending habits. We might want to be generous to others, which can lead to overspending. Or we might take a major financial risk by investing on a whim. People may not have our best financial interests at heart, so beware of get-rich-quick schemes.
The other major energy that could form is that you may be attracted to people who flatter you, but they could turn out to be other than what you think. Be sure that you know the person you’re involved with. Although we all want to wear rose-colored glasses and blindly trust the other when it comes to our relationships, don’t avoid any red flags that come into your consciousness. If you’re seeing things that don’t align with your vibe, pay attention.
The Moon’s arrival in Scorpio at 7:21 AM PDT this morning ups the stakes significantly, both in terms of the need for balance as well as the intense temptations to take a self-righteous, all or nothing approach. The Sun’s conjunction to Mars completes in an atmosphere that is fraught with obsession and an intense desire to push an agenda through a sheer force of will. The real question is whether we have managed to build sturdy alliances or whether we are out on limb with determined independence. The latter condition will leave us extremely vulnerable and potentially lead to extreme defensiveness but few productive options. Selfish impulsiveness is extremely dangerous here.

Wombat Spirit arrives to nudge you to drop the false masks because it is not others who will hurt you now. It is you who are hurting yourself when you aren’t being authentic. It’s okay, though; you can course-correct if you are willing to be yourself no matter what comes. Even if others are not in agreement with your authenticity, you are safe with Spirit.
