As the end of October approaches, the planets of Venus and Mercury will appear to be a finger's length away from each other as Mercury gets ready to station retrograde on the Oct. 31. Look for the pair shining brightly just above the western horizon during twilight time. Saturn and Jupiter can be found in the southwestern night sky just after sunset. Mars twinkles in the eastward direction of the early hours of 5:30 to 6:30 a.m. There are no meteor showers firing in the cosmos night sky this week. Happy Birthday, Scorpios!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Opportunity knocks for a financial gain if there is careful planning. Seeking council or consultation could make all the difference. Odd relationship behaviors might surge previous suspicions to new highs, prompting some secretive investigations. Best course of action: test the waters before taking the plunge, Scorpio.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Sharing generosities can help fuel positive returns with the Sagittarius this week. Donating one's time may be more valuable than monetary significance. Multitasking and combining personal agendas with priorities should have gratifying conclusions, as long as the Archer is able to throw a little patience into the mix.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Unresolved troubles and prolonged problems call for critical thinking. Obvious solutions provide transformation to create a much-needed change. Keeping an optimistic attitude may be the Capricorn's biggest challenge. Best advice: stop chewing on previous resistance and pessimistic thinking. You got this, Goat!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The Human's social life might need to be put on hold this week due to increased career demands. Lack of predictability or abrupt changes could ruffle this air sign's feathers. Focus and concentration may be harder to retain if work duties are juggled with personal affairs. Best advice: seek assistance accordingly, Aquarian.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Testy and temperamental attitudes from the outside world agitate and frustrate the Pisces this week. Travel prospects with others should take a rain check for now. While spiritual practices and healthy habits may help the Fish find their way through the murky social waters of society, solitude provides the best protection.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Overspending places financial matters center stage with the Aries this week. A major sacrifice of "robbing Peter to pay Paul" may be needed to make ends meet until the Ram is able to regenerate secured funds again. Parental and/or partner disputes fuel the already intense situation. Rebellious reactions are ill-advised.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Portions and limitations are tempted to expand this weekend - especially when it comes to eating. Wellness matters may become tricky. Abundant gourmet food and sweets can blur the Bull's dietary boundary lines. The Bull's best course of action would be to allot for variety samplings instead of overindulging.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Explorations and intriguing escapades entice this air sign. Actions based on knowledge alone may not result in anticipated or desired expectations. The Twins should use extra safety precautions should they pursue any untried or risky adventures this week. Best advice: look before you leap, Gemini.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Motivation evades the Cancer's effort to finish a long drawn-out project, but a few innovated ideas from a sibling or close relative could stir up some inspiration with the Crab. Still waters may run deep this with children or youth that know more than they are telling. A "kill them with kindness" approach works best.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Bargains and hot deals highlight the Leo's week, but if the Big Cat isn't careful to bank the savings (instead of spending it elsewhere), there may not be much left to brag about. Keep in mind that upgrading or having the latest trend has its price. Best course of action: stick to a preplanned limit and stash the extra cash.
VIRGO (Aug. 23- Sept. 22)
Fiscal conditions create increased mental stress for the Virgo this week. Bottled-up tensions might detour sympathetic efforts from personal relationships that could deliver the emotional support needed to stabilize anxieties. Best advice: communication skills will play a key role in resolving and reducing worries.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
The Libra deserves a little self-pampering for a job well done these last few weeks. Acknowledgments are in order for the Scale's diplomatic efforts with handling chaotic and mentally strenuous pressures. Heavy is the head that wears the crown and in this particular situation the Libra shines golden. Bravo!
