Loving Venus and Mercury the Messenger will team up on October 1 but they are directly opposite cloudy Neptune so if you think that someone special is ignoring your attraction then you need to think again.

The best advice that I can give you is to give them the benefit of the doubt until you are positive about what’s happening with them. Neptune can prompt you to put on some rose colored glasses while peppering you with fairy dust so hang tough until you know ALL of the truth. 

You may be surprised at how everything — including that aforementioned fairy dust — eventually shakes out.
