A Scorpio may be hard to know, but that is mostly because they do not trust too many folks. They just won’t let you into their secret life.
This water sign person tends to keep their thoughts secret, mostly because they do not trust too many people. So a Scorpio can appear to be open and sharing, but you can be certain they keep their real feelings tightly guarded.
No one really knows a Scorpio but once you get past the fact that they are secretive and intense, you can know they are also giving and sharing – just not of themselves.
So, if that is OK with you, then you have a great best friend. Since this fixed sign always checks people out before they can be a friend, you know you have a friend forever, unless of course you betray them and then it is over forever. Scorpio never forgets a wrong and always remembers a right.

This is the usual emotional week before the moon is full on Monday, Oct. 29, just two days before Halloween. So be smart and watch out for Halloween merrymakers and also high-strung road rage. Have some jobs you would like to start prior to Mercury going retrograde on Election Day, Nov. 6. Then the time has come; not the best for new romance, but anything else will work.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) If you are not involved in a new relationship or at least considering one, then you just aren‘t interested. Perhaps you might try to move around more socially or you could miss a really swinging experience. Of course some Aries have had enough parties and just want to work at this point in time.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Take a good look at any opportunity to find your “bliss” that crosses your path this week. It could be a shattering experience but you will learn a lot about life. So make the social scene and see what you stir up that could turn out to be in your favor. Listen to the music and dance. It’s all about you.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) You might find some real fun if you spend some serious time looking around. There is no project you can afford to ignore right now. After all, Jupiter promises promotion, success and enlightenment. It is up to you to grab it and run fast. No more talking; the time for some action is right now.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Now that you have no one to blame but yourself for your present lifestyle both at home and work, make your big move and let life happen. An old friend has offered some fine advice. All you need to do is consider it and then move on it. You are looking right at some divine chances to help some pals.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Give yourself a swift kick if you don’t pick up the pieces left from last week and turn things totally around. You have a golden opportunity to present yourself in a new fashion. Make sure you do just that. Changing your attitude will change your life. The new horizon has opened for you and it is time to take it.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) You may be totally swamped at home and work, but try to grab a minute for yourself and spend some time alone. It is only fair and honest to be nice to yourself. We all know how involved you get with your duties but take some time for you and discover how wonderful you really are.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) You may have had honors in the past and you will have more in the future because you are so kind and loving. But right now you need to play some new music. Your partner also needs to join in the fun. Letting go of past hurts and pain should be your new goal that you give to yourself.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) It is time for some new strategies when planning your future role as a leader. You are a skilled manager, but sometimes you don’t believe it and your ideas fall through the cracks. But the time has come for you to take yourself seriously and pull things together for your benefit. Get advice and move.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) You may think some of your real needs have not been met, but take an inventory of what you want and then decide. You may be surprised at the outcome of your very own mindset. You are flexible and always willing to change. First, look at what you really want, then let pals know.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Life is always serious as far as you are concerned but this could be a week to relax and do just what you want to do. Do the job you are paid to do and then take an hour or two off. Make some adjustments in your lifestyle but don’t rock the boat while making adjustments. Only fools do that.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) The best thing you can do now is let go of your old ways of life and try moving in a new direction. Once you do that, believe me, you will not regret one minute of your new lifestyle. The more adjustments you make, the happier you will be. Don’t talk yourself out of moving forward.
Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) Getting away from your routine and finding a new space for a day or so will help you cope with your life. You will be more creative than ever now that Neptune is in Pisces and will be there for some time. You need to stay away from artificial people and things and be real.
