The universe keeps moving and changing, pushing us to grow and learn more. As we deal with the different vibes from the planets, every star sign gets a chance to learn its own special lessons and change for the better. On October 22, 2023, we’re at a point where things are changing and we’re thinking about what’s happened so far. Mercury moving into Scorpio makes us think and talk about deeper stuff, Venus being in Virgo helps us show love and like things in a nicer way, and Mars in Scorpio gives us the bravery to explore new things that might scare us.
