October 23-November 22

 With the Sun now in your homesign, you’re the sexy star of daring Scorpio territory. And with Jupiter celebrating in your sign for the next 13 months, you are one lucky darling. You’ve been waiting 12 long years for expansive Jupiter to enter your sign, so don’t diddle-daddle. Jupiter encourages you to dream, hope, and feel good about yourself. Mercury is still in Scorpio as well until November 5th, so your mental energy sizzles, as does your charisma. You may not be able to see it, but you will definitely feel it. Your innate psychic ability sees through facades/depth of the soul. It’s only when you brood too much that your vision distorts life into gloom and doom. One of your planetary rulers Mars has just moved in Libra and your twelfth house of secrets and the subconscious. Things may be going on behind the scenes, and you have a short fuse when it comes to patience. Unless you are plotting revenge, which you are willing to wait years to enact.

Pluto, your other planetary ruler, is masterminding your self-transformation and he’s focused on your mind and intellect, and how well you communicate—and also on your ability to analyze your goals and act accordingly. Your future success depends on your ability to articulate. So don’t scatter your energy, and please don’t procrastinate, as you are prone to do. You may be super sexy, but you’re not superhuman, no matter how much of a rush you get when you wait until the last minute, so you can fly in and save the day.

October 26th is a golden day for you. The Sun conjuncts Jupiter in your homesign. When these two join forces, it’s a celestial celebration of two old friends together again. A happy ego is the theme of this conjunction. And it may signal the start of a new you.

The full moon beams in Taurus and your seventh house of relationships on November 4th. It’s known as the beaver full moon. But we’re not going there. Keep your feet on the ground and your emotions under control—no jealous hissy fits or confrontational zingers allowed. The very next day Mercury moves into optimistic Sagittarius, which bodes well for your ability to seek and secure new opportunities for earned income.

Jupiter ups the chances of finding love, especially when Venus, the goddess of love and money, joins him in Scorpio and your first house on November 7th. Passion and charm abound, and it’s an all-or-nothing situation. When Saturn in Sag trines Uranus in Aries on Veteran’s Day, it bodes well for your work situation and health. It’s even great for your pets, if you have any.

November 13th and 16th are great days for romance. Could be a one-night-only rendezvous, but you can handle that. You can practice for the new moon in Scorpio on the 18th, which conjuncts the Sun. Desires flood your libido, and it may take super powers of endurance to keep up. But you’re willing to try!

However, your two planetary rulers, Mars and Pluto, get into a huge power struggle on the 9th. A lot of energy is being tossed at each other, and you’re in the middle. With these two monitoring your sign, no wonder you like to be in control. Confrontations are likely. Either others will try to control you, or you will try to control others. If you get ruthless, they will reciprocate. Authority figures won’t appreciate your tactics, and vice versa. Unless you have the upper hand, prepare to make enemies. If you are the upper hand, prepare to face your resentful subordinates.

When the Sun moves into Sagie on the 22nd, you can quote Cuba Gooding, Jr. who famously said on film, “Show me the money.” It’s a chance to set your sights on something greater than you could have imagined. The next day, after five-plus months in retrograde, Neptune goes direct in your fellow water sign, sensitive Pisces, and your fifth house of true love, creativity, and frolic. The fog will lift and your visions will light a creative path to your hopes and dreams.

sagittarius starla's starcast on equality365.comSagittarius
November 22-December 21

With Jupiter now in Scorpio and your twelfth house for the next 13 months, you should use that time to clear out the clutter in your life and focus on long range plans. You want to be ready when Jupiter blesses your sign and life in November 2018. Strategy is your best friend, especially with the Sun in Scorpio until November 22nd, when the he moves into your homesign. Until then, you can still be a maestro behind the scenes, even though contemplation is not your natural forte. Besides, with feisty Mars in Libra and your house of friends and associates, there’s networking to be done, and that is your natural forte.

On October 26th, when the Sun conjoins lucky Jupiter, you may have an amazing flash of insight about your future. The Sun opposes the full moon in Taurus and your sixth house of work and health on November 4th and could spark differences of opinion. But on the 5th, Mercury enters your homesign, so you’ll be glibber than Dan Rather wallowing in a vat of metaphors.

On the 7th, Venus joins Jupiter and the Sun in Scorpio. More action behind the scenes, but it could have you thinking about romance and money. Stabilizing Saturn embraces unpredictable Uranus on Veteran’s Day. That’s a planetary oxymoron. Like the rain and a sudden burst of sunshine. You could get a rainbow—or not. And this could affect your love life and creativity. Mid-month, Neptune causes a mental fog, which could complicate family discussions and make sticky situation even stickier. If you can, wait until the 16th to have that sensitive chat. You’ll still be blurting out—a Sagie trait–your thoughts, but they will be more sincere and compassionate.

When the new moon beams in Scorpio on the 18th, it’s conjoined by the Sun, bringing a balance of your emotions, especially in your personal life. You’ll feel at one with your deepest feelings, which in turn makes you more confident. Which you will need when Mars and Pluto wrangle on the 19th, causing a slight hitch in your career aspirations and your earned income. It won’t last longer than a couple of days, until Venus smooths out the situation

You will breathe a sigh of relief when you welcome the Sun into your sign on the 22nd. And Neptune goes direct the same day, so it will be much easier to separate dreams from reality. Better yet, you may be able to turn some of those dreams into reality.

capricorn starla's starcast on equality365.comCapricorn
December 22-January 19

With the sun and Jupiter in your eleventh house of friends and associates, and Mars in your tenth house of career, you are in a position to achieve goals and reap rewards. Venus is there as well, so add charm and diplomacy to your natural practicality and focus. And pay attention to a close friend, if he or she offers advice. October 26th could be a banner day for networking. You might want to give a dinner party and organize a chat on social media. Whatever! Just get out and rub shoulders with VIPs. The Sun opposes the full moon on November 4th in earthy Taurus and your fifth house of true love, creativity, and frolic. Although Taurus is a fellow earth sign, you may feel tense and confrontational. Try to stay grounded. If this brings the worst out in others, let it bring out the best in you.

Venus moves into your twelfth house neighbor, Sagittarius, on November 7th, so you may have an urge to hibernate. But do so for the right reasons. You may need to think about ending an unproductive relationship, or you may be secretly longing for a new love affair. Either case, you are vulnerable, so it behooves you to get to the bottom of those feelings. Notice that we said feelings.

You should have a defining moment on the ninth, when the Sun makes nice with Pluto the transformer. He always has a plan for you; hopefully you’ll find out what that is. Your cautious planetary ruler Saturn dallies with Uranus, the planet of surprises, on Veteran’s Day. It may have something to do with your home or family. You won’t know until it happens. The cat might have your tongue on the 13th. Be sure to speak with clarity. Or wait until the 16th to have your say.

The Sun conjuncts the new moon in Scorpio and your house of friends and associates. If you weren’t sure of your goals, you are now. Mars is still instilling your career with drive and chutzpah, but Pluto the transformer may try to herd you into a new direction. He’s testing your resolve, but your innate stubbornness could win him over. You’ll have plenty of time to think about this when the Sun enters Sagittarius and your twelfth house of secrets, seclusion, and the subconscious on November 22nd. Fortunately, Neptune has turned direct and makes it easier to focus on reality, one of Capie’s tried and true vistas.

January 20-February 18

The Sun and expansive Jupiter are at the top of your chart and in your tenth house of fame and fortune. Mercury’s there as well. So, Maestro Airhead, it’s your turn for the spotlight—not that you’ve ever been willing to step out of it. But now the right people are paying attention to you. It’s supercalifragilisticexpialidocious—that’s Mary-Poppins’ speak for super and fantastic. And in astro talk, that means success. That doesn’t mean you can laze around on your gluteus maximus and wait for success to come to you. But you’re Mensa-smart enough to know that. So, when the Sun and Jupiter conjoin to benefit your career and reputation on October 26th–one of the luckiest days of your year–don’t you dare waste it.

Early November, Venus secretly throws a bit of magic on your ninth house of travel, education, and publishing, and the Sun sprinkles gold dust on your tenth house of fame and fortune. And on the 4th, the Sun opposes the full moon in Taurus and your fourth house of home and family. Normally, you tend to be unemotional, so don’t let this solar/lunar aspect turn you into Mr. Nasty-Pants. Just do your usual aloof non-speaking routine, and don’t let a relative goad you into a verbal explosion of words you can’t take back. You’d be sorry, and they would be wounded, so much so they might not be willing to forgive you. If you wait until the 5th to respond, when Mercury enters optimistic Sagittarius, you’ll be in a far better mood.

Venus moves into Scorpio joining the Sun and Jupiter in your 10th house of fame and fortune on the 7th. This heralds a diplomatic and charming phase for your hopes and ambitions. You can dazzle the world—at least most of it–with your genius and innovation. You’ll be driven to succeed, and the Sun and Pluto want to make sure of it. This development could be almost mystical.

You may have to hurdle a hitch or two mid-month, but nothing you can’t handle. Just stay focused. Anyway, the Sun is conjoining the new moon on the 18th, and you could have great influence over others, boarding on super-power status. But you must use this power and inspiration to help others. As long as you don’t use it to take advantage of others, you will benefit as well. But if you abuse it, at some point in the future, Pluto will eventually take you down.

Speaking of Pluto, there’s a big ruckus between him and Mars on the 19th. It may be a result of some hidden agenda, so try to stay clear until you know for sure. .

On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Sag and your eleventh house of friends and associates. With Venus and Jupiter both embracing your career and the Sun endowing your networking ability, you’re dealing with a win-win situation. At the same time dreamy Neptune turns direct in Pisces and your second house of earned income, which clears the foggy confusion from Neptune’s five-plus months in retrograde. You should be able to have a clear perspective to financial security.

pisces starla's starcast on equality365.comPisces
February 19-March 20

The Sun and Jupiter, one of your ruling planets, in Scorpio are blessing your ninth house of travel, education, and publishing. Mercury is on board as well—until November fifth. And Venus and Mars are blessing your eighth house of sex, other people’s money, and enlightenment. But with Scorpio involved, it’s a time of transformation. And whatever you do, don’t fight it. You must find an emotional balance to handle whatever the Cosmos brings.

Jupiter will be in your ninth house for the next 13 months, and he comes bearing gifts and good luck. The last couple of years have been stressful for you, but you did the time and are ready for adventure. If you’re searching for meaning in your life, Jupiter will help you find it. After all, you’re a Pisces, and your curious nature is infamous as well as de rigueur. Your mind is on a pilgrimage. You could travel abroad, publish a book, or you could open a brothel—just kidding, Fishy One. But be eager and ready to discover–whether it’s learning a foreign language, experiencing the culture of other countries, volunteering for a charity, enhancing your innate psychic abilities, seeking more education, exploring your sexual fantasies, or deciding to be celibate.

There are some sweet and sour aspects ahead. October 26th is one of the sweetest, when the Sun conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio and your ninth house, sparking insight and opportunity. It’s one of the loveliest days of the year. A sour day comes on the 28, when Venus squares Pluto. Beware of anyone who tries to push you into something you’re not comfortable with, and vice versa. Sweet days return on November 3rd, when Venus throws kisses to Saturn, who’s been on your case for two years. (Thankfully, he’s moving on in December.) This combo brings on a more serious mood, when you might share some of your concerns with a dear and trusted friend. Then it’s back to the sweet, when the Sun trines Neptune on the same day, which could result in a dreamy sexual fantasy, real or imagined. Whatever, or whoever, comes of it, is your decision.

If health is a concern, early November would be a good time to check in with your physician, just to make sure all is well.

The Sun opposes the full moon in Taurus and your third house of communication on the 4th. Emotions, either yours or theirs, or both–may erupt in a less than stellar outburst. You should be silent, which is often viewed as wisdom. All the better to enhance your image, my dear. Besides, Mercury enters Sagie on the 5th to focus on your tenth house of fame and fortune. You see, there is hope! Your confidence and self-worth get a huge boost. On the 7th, Venus enters Scorpio and revs up your passions (as if you need that), and intensity. Hopefully, this won’t incite your tendency to be jealous.

Pisces takes a couple of hard knocks toward mid-month, a given when you’re known as an emotional wastebasket. Better to make the most of the good fortune coming your way, thanks to Venus conjoining lucky Jupiter on the 13th. This could mean a trip to a foreign country or an opportunity to publish some of your prose.

On the 18th, the Sun conjuncts the new moon in Scorpio. This is more like it. Your desires and drive are strong with a mystical nature.

Another glitch comes your way on the 19th, when Mars tangles with Pluto. When those two go at it, life can be volatile. For you, Pisces dear, it could mean a struggle relating to other people’s money and your friendships and associates. Or a Weinstein type could threaten your future if you don’t put out. Luckily, harmonious Venus comes to your rescue on the 21st.

On November 22nd, the Sun moves into Sagittarius and your tenth house of fame and fortune. This opens to door to your hopes and dreams. It’s a banner day, because your planetary ruler Neptune goes direct on the same day. Your vision is no longer distorted, and the view is lovely. You are finally able to distinguish between a mirage and reality.

March 21-April 19

The Sun has entered Scorpio, and Jupiter is already there, as is Mercury. But Jupiter, the good-luck planet, is planning a 13-month stay in your eighth house of sex, other people’s money, taxes, debts, loss, and rebirth. No need to quiver. The eighth is known as the equal-opportunity house. But it’s friendlier to describe it as enlightenment, discovery, and our psychological relationship to others. Think of this house as a spiritual guide who shatters your illusions for a higher good. And then forget about your ego; it has no power in this placement. Jupiter encourages you to manage your time, be productive, and plan ahead. It’s also fortuitous to collaborate.

One of the most favorable days this year is October 26th, when the Sun conjuncts Jupiter in Scorpio. After all, you and the sexy beast share a ruler—Mars.

Meanwhile, Venus is in your seventh house of relationships until November 7th, while your planetary ruler Mars remains there until December 9th. However, he is not in the best of moods during November, so you’ll need to control your temper and aggression.

The Sun in Scorpio and your eighth house of sex, other people’s money and rebirth opposes the full moon in Taurus and your second house of earned income. You’ll need to be grounded in case you have to put out a financial fire–one you probably ignited.

More fire comes your way on the fifth when Mercury the messenger moves into Sagittarius, a fellow fire sign and your ninth house of travel, education and publishing. But this is a good blaze that invites optimism and self-confidence (not that you need any).

Once Venus moves into Scorpio and your eighth house on November 7th, she has a powerful impact on romance, sex, and money. With both Jupiter and Venus now in the same sign, you can expect money to come from unexpected sources. Could be from an inheritance, a loan, or venture capital. And if Mars acts up, think carefully before committing yourself to new projects and added expenses.

You may also find yourself ending friendships and relationships that have gone sour. That’s one of the eighth house’s tasks—getting rid of the useless. However that doesn’t mean all relationships. You will have plenty of passion, also thanks to the eighth house.

Veteran’s Day bodes well for your travel plans, but Uranus in your sun sign could spring a surprise. And he doesn’t give a hoo-haw about what you want. When he’s involved, it is always a wait-and-see moment.

On the 13th, Venus conjuncts Jupiter in your eighth house, so money or sex may be involved–maybe both. You can only wish. A hidden agenda could surface, but it will be short-lived.

The Sun conjuncts the new moon on the 18th, again in your eighth house, to enhance Jupiter’s efforts on your behalf. Enjoy it, because the very next day, your ruler Mars gets into it with Pluto, which could impact your partnerships and career. Luckily, Venus is on good terms with Pluto, so any angst should blow over.

On the 22nd, the Sun moves into Sagittarius and your ninth house of travel, education, publishing, and philosophical meaning. Be ready to pack your bags and head to some foreign shore. With Neptune going direct in Pisces and your twelfth house, you should have added insight to guide your destiny, as well as your travels.

taurus starla's starcast on equality365.comTaurus
April 20-May 20

Now that the Sun has joined Jupiter and Mercury in Scorpio to bless your seventh house of relationships, the Cosmos is betting on your success both personally and professionally. Achieving that may involve planning and follow-through with occasional disagreements. But Jupiter is in your court for the long haul. Thirteen months, in fact. Your planetary ruler Venus is still in your sixth house of work and health until November 7th, and her favorite sidekick Mars is there as well, and will remain until December 9th.

As these planets move forward, so will you and good fortune. Leave the baggage and frustration of the past behind. One of the best days of the year is October 26th when the Sun conjuncts Jupiter on your behalf. Savor the experience and embrace the possibilities of the future. But keep in mind that it’s a bit too early to start spending in expectation of a possible fortune. That’s a no-no.

Your planetary ruler Venus may encounter a hitch when she squares Pluto the transformer in Capricorn and your ninth house of travel and enlightenment. But Mercury will work his verbal wiles on Pluto-poopy-pants and save the day, and your plans.

On November 4th, the Sun opposes the full moon in your homesign, pushing a few of your vulnerabilities. But you are an earthy sign, and earthy signs are innately grounded, so get a grip on your emotions and navigate the storm by concentrating on your goals. Besides, full moons are a symbol of completion.

Mercury moves into Sag and your eighth house on the 5th, but this encounter inspires optimism and self-confidence. Saturn in Sag puts out a sorcerer’s hat and offers a few karmic lessons.

On the 7th, Venus, the Goddess of love and money, enters Scorpio and your seventh house of partnerships, joining the Sun and Jupiter on your behalf. If you’re not in love, you will be. Before mid-month, planets will flock to your side to be of assistance. Of course, there’s another hitch. Mercury’s going to fuss with Neptune on the 13tg and blur your vision of reality, but by the 17th, Mercury—he’s fleet of feet—has bestowed his favor on feisty Mars in your workplace. Things get even better on the 18th, when the Sun conjuncts the new moon in your seventh house of relationships. You may be headed for matrimony.

So don’t fall apart when the two headstrong planets, Mars and Pluto, get into a scuffle. This puts pressure on your workplace and the possibility of money coming from outside sources.

However by the 22nd the planets have quit fussing, and the Sun is ready to enter Sagittarius which is hopeful in terms of other people’s money. Sex is in the air, and as an earthy bull, your antenna is on alert. Neptune has added his dreamy aura by going direct in emotional Pisces and your eleventh house of friends and associates. Could one of them be “the one?”

gemini starla's starcast on equality365.comGemini
May 21-June 20

Your workplace and your health are on planetary alert, with the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter all in your sixth house. The Sun and your ruler Mercury will move on in November, but Jupiter plans to stay there for 13 months, which is great news for your day-to-day life. In other words, things are looking up. But you are by nature an upbeat person.

Since you’re a twin sign, if one of you is having a bad day, chances are the other you is having a good day. There are rare exceptions when both sides of your personality are hitting bottom; as in the case of our dear leader. (Obviously, he’s dealing with some serious karma.) But forget about him and concentrate on yourself. With Mars in your cousinly air sign, Libra, and your fifth house of creativity, true love, and frolic, you’re ready to show off that brilliant brain of yours. And the perfect place to do so is the workplace. But don’t ignore your heart—the fifth house is counting on that.

One of the best days of the year is October 26th when the Sun conjuncts lucky Jupiter, focusing on your daily existence—work and health. Even your doggie and kitty-cat can get in on this action.

Venus may be squaring pushy Pluto on the 28th in your eighth house, but your planetary ruler Mercury is making nice with the Transformer. Psst! Between you and the Cosmos, Pluto is letting Mercury take credit. Pluto doesn’t relinquish power, especially in the eighth house, which he been ruling over since ancient times.

The Sun opposes the full moon in Taurus and your twelfth house of secrets, seclusion, and the subconscious on November 4th. Emotions could be intense, so watch out for hidden agendas in your personal and professional relationships. But one thing the Cosmos loves about you, Gemini darling, is that you’re over an upset even before it ends.

On November 5th, Mercury moves into Sagittarius and your seventh house of relationships. You’ve always been an excellent communicator, but now you’re even more eloquent. Venus moves into Scorpio and your sixth house on the 7th, so use that eloquence to improve your work possibilities. Spread your wings—notice we didn’t mention legs–hither and thither. Post on social networks and use your fancy vocabulary to whisper passionate, sweet nothings to a new romantic interest.

On Veteran’s Day, Saturn the stabilizer in Sag and your seventh house makes nicey-nice with unpredictable Uranus in Aries and your eleventh house of friends and associates. What will happen is anyone’s guess. Uranus doesn’t even know; he’s that spontaneous.

Venus gets cozy with Jupiter on the 13th which bodes well for relationships. But Mercury smacks Neptune around—LeRoy Jethro style–on the same day. He wants to punish the God of the Seas for blurring his vision when your career is involved.

The Sun conjoins the new moon in your sixth house on the 18th, and everyone at work cheers. Until the next day when it’s Mars’ turn to smack Pluto around. That will backfire on the warrior planet, cuz Pluto will take it out on you in the workplace, and then he’ll put a hold on your loans and sexual fulfillment. In comes fair-minded Venus to plead with Big P to ease up on you.

On November 22, the Sun joins Mercury in Sagittarius and your seventh house of relationships. It’s time to speak, and speak you will. You could talk a leg off a snail. The day gets even better when Neptune goes direct in Pisces and your tenth house of fame and fortune. .

June 21-July 22

The Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter are all three are basking in Scorpio and your fifth house of relationships of true love, creativity, and frolic. In fact, Jupiter is planning to stay there for the next 13 months. Venus and Mars are still in Libra. Venus will join the Sun and Jupiter in your fifth house on November 7th, but Mars just arrived in your fourth house of home and family, and he’s stuck there until December 9th. He’s aggravated about this, so there’s a chance he’ll cause trouble and tempt you to lose your temper. But he’s got a big surprise coming. Crabs go into hiding when they’re riled up. Of course, you can’t hide until he moves on. Just until your emotions are under control. Besides, you don’t want to miss out on true love–unless you already have it. Then the two of you can canoodle away in that impenetrable shell of yours, although it might be a bit crowded. Plus you don’t want to be in place for all that good fortune and joy Jupiter is promising.

And make a note. You need to be socializing on October 26th—it’s rumored to be the best day of the year because the Sun is conjunct Jupiter. And since the Cosmos is spreading the rumor, it must be true. So do come out and play, Crabcakes. And if you’re single, you might meet your soulmate.

You’ll be tempted to hide again on the 28th, when Venus in your fourth house of home and family squares Pluto in your seventh house of relationships. But before you get riled, Mercury sweet-talks Pluto out of any spiteful action.

Since the Moon is your planetary ruler, you emotions are tied to lunar activities. Full moons tend to work you into a dither. And the full moon on November 4th is a doozy. Because the Sun in your fifth house is opposing the moon in your eleventh house of friendships and associates. Full moons often herald completion, so one of your friends may fall by the wayside. Hopefully, you’ll say “good riddance.” Otherwise you’ll clam up for days, or be crabby with everyone, which may be worse.

Mercury moves into Sag and your sixth house on November 5th, bringing optimism and self-confidence to your work and health. And on the 7th, Venus moves into Scorpio and your fifth house, another boon for romance and creativity. She oversees love and money—music to your ears, as well as your heart and pocketbook. There is a tendency to become jealous under this transit, but don’t bring on bad by obsessing over it. Concentrate on your creativity; it will reap dividends.

November 9th encourages harmony between your fifth and seventh houses. Good for creativity and partnerships, while the 13th volleys between good luck and stress. Good luck in love and creativity bestowed by Venus’s conjunction with Jupiter. Stress brought on by Mercury squaring Neptune. Mental stress and mishaps in communication in your workplace and health hindered by change and an overwhelming urge to get away from it all.

Luckily, the Sun conjuncts the Moon in Scorpio and your fifth house on the 18th. True love continues to beckon, along with a new burst of creativity. So celebrate and cavort with some bubbly. Cristal, of course.

On the 19th, you could have a hangover, which might be for the best. Fiery Mars is squabbling with Pluto—home and family versus relationships. If you’re hung over, you can use that as an excuse—you’re in too much discomfort to choose. Don’t drink? You can swoon and fake a faint. It’s what 19th century ladies called having the vapors. Just be ready for whatever concoction they stick under your nose.

The Sun enters Sagittarius on the 22nd, which rings in an atmosphere of optimism and goodwill. It’s a chance to reach for the stars. Visualize your plans. Neptune will assist. He’s no longer fogging your view. As of the 22nd, he ended his retrograde and turned direct. He’s still dreamy but not nearly as distorted.

July 23-August 22

Put out the welcome mat. The Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter are gathered in Scorpio and your fourth house of home and family. While the Sun and Mercury will move on, Jupiter will stay for 13 months. Venus is charming Libra and your third house of communication, but she will move to Scorpio on November 7th. Mars has just joined her in Libra, where he will remain until December 9th.

Like the adage says, home is where your heart is–at least until November 8, 2018. With Jupiter shining on your home life, you will have many choices. Do you want to renovate and redecorate? Do you want to move? Do you want to live in an apartment or a house? Do you want an ocean view or a mountain vista? Do you want to buy? Do you want to sell? Whatever you answer, you should be lucky in real estate dealings. And your family will be cheering you on. You can let them loan you the money; just don’t let them move in with you unless it’s a huge house.

Visualize your dream home by creating positive affirmations. Then look for someplace you can love. Somewhere you can throw those fabulous soirees for a few hundred of your nearest and dearest.

Add October 26th to your iPad. The Sun conjuncts Jupiter, and astro geniuses promise it’s going to be the best day of the year. So make the most of it, Proud Leo.

Romance isn’t high on the agenda, but there’s nothing preventing you from showing off your wares until the Cosmos opens a hunting season. Meanwhile, concentrate on making your lair inviting and luxurious. In other words, Leo style.

Communications at home and work could misfire when Venus tangles with Pluto on the 28th. On the same day, Mercury gets friendly with Sagittarius, your fellow fire sign, and communication flows like a rippling brook between you and your loved ones, be it a sweetheart or family member.

On November 4th, the Sun opposes the full moon in Taurus and your tenth house of fame and fortune. It’s a great day to ground yourself and think about your career and reputation. On the 5th, Mercury moves into Sag and your fifth house of true love and creativity. Two days later Venus, the goddess of love and money, moves into Scorpio, joining the Sun and Jupiter in your fourth house. This confirms your desire to be surrounded by beautiful things every moment of your life.

Your planetary ruler, the Sun, makes nice with Pluto the transformer in your sixth house of work and health. You might want to pump up your pecs at the gym, or if they’re already perfect, bake a fancy dessert and take it to work. On Veteran’s Day, Saturn the teacher trines unpredictable Uranus in Aries. Your lover may want to have a chat, and you don’t know what it’s about. A trip abroad may have to be rescheduled, so you can book a seven-star hotel or luxurious resort. You never know what will happen when Mr. Unpredictable is involved.

On the 13th, Venus conjuncts Jupiter in your fourth house of home and family, but at the same time, Mercury squares Neptune in your eighth house of other people’s money.

If you worried when Jupiter left your homesign and moved into your next door neighbor, Scorpio, stop fretting. He, along with the Sun and Mercury, are putting their auras together in your second house of earned income. Venus is still in your homesign, and Mars just arrived there. The Goddess of love and money will move into Scorpio on November 7th, but the warrior planet will remain in your first house until December 9th.

So the bases are loaded. Now it’s up to you to hit a home run. If you’re not into sports, change it to an Oscar, and you’re a nominee. Or you’ve composed an opera, and Maria Callas has risen from the dead to sing the lead. We could go on and on, but we won’t.

However you spin it, there’s money to be made. And choices as well. That’s when you, lovely Libra, are often indecisive. You weigh the pros then panic about the cons. And after a few back-and-forth’s, you’ve lost the momentum and everyone around you has fallen asleep. Pretend you’ve already moved into Scorpio, fake some of Scorpio amazing intuition. Then maybe you can make a decision.

A perfect day to do so is October 26th, which astro VIPs are calling the best day of the year–when the Sun conjuncts lucky Jupiter in your second house.

Do not wait until the 28th. Venus is going up against Pluto that day. That’s a first house/fourth house tussle. You versus your family. Fortunately, Mercury talks Pluto into overriding the Venus/Pluto aspect.

On November 3rd, your planetary ruler Venus charms Saturn in Sag and your third house of communication, and the Sun in your second house has invited Neptune in Pisces and your sixth house of work and health to have a cozy tête-à-tête. This could herald a raise.

The Sun in your second house of earned income opposes the full moon in Taurus and your eighth house of sex, other people’s money, and rebirth on the 4th. You’ll need to ground your airy ways, even if you have to tie yourself to a tree to deal with this full moon. Most likely, it’s about money, and you find the subject untoward, given your delicate sensibilities. Taurus the bull won’t hesitate to stampede; he could crush you with one hoof. You’ll panic and make up some outrageous lie—yes, lovely Libra can spin a tall tale—to justify your inaction. Then on the same day, Venus in your homesign opposes unpredictable Uranus in Aries and your seventh house of relationships. It could easily turn into a kerfuffle.

Hopefully, when Mercury the messenger enters Sagie and your third house of communication on November 5th, you will speak out with optimism and self-assurance. You won’t have a choice when your ruler Venus moves into powerhouse Scorpio and your second house of earned income. He’s an all-or-nothing sign and passionate about his opinions.

On the 13th, your ruler Venus conjuncts expansive Jupiter in your second house of earned income. And you should be right on the money. Except for Mercury, now raising a fuss with Neptune in Pisces and your sixth house of work and health. Mercury isn’t satisfied with the way things are being communicated.

Hang on till the 17th when the Messenger Man shifts gears and makes nice with Mars in your homesign. The next day, the Sun in Scorpio conjuncts the new moon, creating a unified stance of ego and emotion.

I’d rather not to mention the 19th, but it would be unfair not to warn you. Mars in is assaulting Pluto, who has put a hold on your family matters, and he’s threatening to turn you against each other. Venus has a chance to sway him, but it will take all her charms coupled with Scorpio’s vindictive nature to save the day

Thank goodness, the Sun is moving into easy going Sagittarius and your third house on the 22nd to connect with your higher goals—something greater than yourself is in the works. Another glad tiding occurs this day, when Neptune turns direct in Pisces after a five-plus month retrograde, fogging up your work perspective. Descartes once said, “I think therefore I am.” At this moment, just-and-fair Libra, it behooves you to add a postscript; “I see therefor it is.”
