Stir up trouble, Virgo!
ARIES (March 21 to April 20): The Sun, moon, and Mercury will all be transiting your house of serious relationships during late October. In love matters, don’t hedge your bets. Better to put all of your energy into the one who cares for you most. Another Aries understands you deeply. Stop denying and start undressing.
TAURUS (April 21 to May 20): You need to know that the person you love loves you back. This is a tender time for you, Taurus. It seems as if the world is plotting against you. Actually, the stars are lining up to tell you: “Relax and stop pressuring yourself so much.” Take some down time for yourself. And some “down on me” time with an Aquarius.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21): Jupiter’s transit through your house of home and family makes this a sweet and slow cycle for you, Gemini. What’s the rush? You really don’t need to make serious decisions in haste. Consult family members. Yes, they are biased, but they are biased in your favor. A Pisces adores you; it’s no act.
CANCER (June 22 to July 22): The new moon on Oct. 25 falls in your house of drama and passion. You really can’t hide behind an “I don’t care” facade. It’s up to you to express your deepest and most sensual desires to a Libra. Make him an offer he can’t refuse!
LEO (July 23 to August 22): You need to keep your mind on work during this very busy and stimulating week. Play the role of “Daddy” – not just in the bedroom with a Virgo, but in the boardroom with your colleagues. You have the authority that makes others feel safe and secure. Don’t hide your power, darling.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22): The new moon on Oct. 25 falls in your very social third house. You can move forward on party plans with pals as well as on brainstorming sessions with smart colleagues. Capricorns are lucky for you in a myriad of ways. Pick one and pick his brain. Or just pick him up.
LIBRA (September 23 to October 22): The Sun moves into the money sector of your chart on Oct. 23, so pull out old bills and pay ’em. If you’ve been lax about finances, now is the time to get on track. Once you take care of debts, a grand (but doable) financial opportunity comes your way. A grand but doable Leo could also come your way in late October.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21): The Scorpionic season is upon us. The Sun enters your sign on Oct. 23 and the new moon in Scorpio adds fuel to the fire on Oct. 25. You can’t hide behind fear or excuses any more. Be the master of your own universe. A Taurus is enthralled by your take-charge persona.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21): There’s no way to control the course of a volatile new relationship, so don’t even try to. Allow a Scorpio to rock your world in a totally shocking and life-affirming way. You need a change. A big one. Welcome it and don’t overanalyze it.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19): Uranus retrograde in your money sector could make this a tricky time for business. You want to start new projects and bring old ones to fruition, but the world is telling you to wait just a little bit longer. Don’t force it. Rethink your plans. A Gemini brings a refreshing new perspective to your situation.
AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18): You don’t have much wiggle room this week – you will have to play by “the man’s” rules. Don’t fight the greater forces, dear boy. Instead, settle down into a work routine that works for you. Then give yourself a regular happy-hour treat with a Sagittarius. Cocktails are optional.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20): You may feel like you’ve lost ground in your career, Pisces, but actually you are right where you’re supposed to be. Uranus is testing your vision. Do you have the fortitude to keep going even when the road is dark? Keep feeling your way forward. A Cancer will help you muddle through.
