On Thursday October 3, the sun will oppose Uranus, the anarchist planet, and this week there is likely to be surprising news. Be prepared for swift adjustments when these two powerful forces collide.
The new moon is in Libra on Friday the 4th, and the next day is a good time to begin a beauty or fitness regimen to revamp yourself. Venus turns into a vixen as she moves into fun-loving Sagittarius on Monday the 7th, and here she is playful and rowdy for the next four weeks. There will be a desire for freedom and exploration in love relationships. Venus can act frivolously with affections and cash while roving through bold Sagittarius, so be sure to enjoy the ride.
When Mercury conjuncts Saturn on Tuesday the 8th, try not to let gloomy thoughts in the atmosphere get the best of you. With Mercury in cagey Scorpio, the next nine weeks are a time when communication can be dicey and even cynical. If you experience this influence, stay optimistic and continue with business as usual.
Libra (September 23–October 22)
Those water-cooler conversations you normally avoid will be less eye-roll-y this week, as you’ll be feeling more gregarious than usual.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21)
If you have a chance to make some cash this week, go for the gold.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)
You’re on fire this week, so don’t feel bad about double-booking those OkCupid dates. If you’re clever, you’ll get everything you want from potential lovers.
Capricorn (December 22–January 19)
It may feel like all you’ve been doing lately is giving, giving, giving, but this week your selflessness will pay off in your relationship.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18)
You work hard, but don’t neglect your friends. Get a drink or dinner with at least one person this week.
Pisces (February 19–March 20)
Suddenly your boss seems to like your work more than usual. Don’t sit there and ask why — just ask for that raise!
Aries (March 21–April 9)
Who hasn’t wanted to get sexy with a foreign stranger, either on our own soil or abroad? JUST DO IT.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Sex can change you — like fundamentally, in your mind. Don’t be afraid to use it to get closer and bring more intensity to your relationship.
Gemini (May 21–June 20)
Don’t apologize for being coy. Mystery makes you more interesting, and this is your moment to have a new romance or just a good time being out and about.
Cancer (June 21–July 22)
Open up and confront those things you’ve been avoiding in your relationship. It’s time to tell your significant other exactly why he’s annoying you.
Leo (July 23–August 22)
Don’t beat yourself up for having no willpower. Everybody needs a break from time to time, and who knows? You just might attract new people with your party vibe.
Virgo (August 23–September 22)
Stop flipping through the catalogues and commit to fixing up your place. Then cook a great meal and invite some friends over for a marathon TV session. Any efforts to beautify your living space will be met with great success.
