Episode 174 of the podcast features an overview of the astrology of October 2018, with Kelly Surtees, Austin Coppock, and Chris Brennan.
Most of the forecast focuses on Venus stationing retrograde in Scorpio early in the month, and the symbolism surrounding that transit.
At the top of the show we discuss the pricing of astrological consultations, and specifically how the price of a consultation can sometimes be a red flag if it is being overvalued.
Later in the episode we discuss some of the underlying significations of Mars, and what relationship it has to the topic of sex and sexuality alongside Venus.
Finally, we also highlight one auspicious electional chart this month, which can be used for beginning a new venture or undertaking.
