Love horoscopes: Oct. 12 – Oct. 18
Beware of love's siren call on Oct. 16 when Venus opposes Neptune. You could abandon common sense, ignore your better judgment or even leave a solid relationship in search of something better. Unfortunately "better" is a figment of your imagination. Named after the Roman god of the sea, Neptune is associated with Lorelei songs, shape shifting projections and hypnotic reflections that pull us down into their grasp. The planet of "what I yearn for," Neptune shows us the watery realm of what could be. Creative types live on the shoreline of this world, drawing inspiration and vision from Neptune's limitless depths. For others a Venus/Neptune opposition results in emotional shipwrecks as infatuation is confused with a soulful connection and hopes are dashed on reality's jagged edges. Plug your ears and steer a straight course and you'll be free and clear of this influence after the 22nd.
