Kind and loving, but secretive and sometimes quiet. If you can get past the fact that a Scorpio sun or moon person keeps plenty of secrets, you can have a friend for life.
Because of their sometimes lack of trust, a Scorpio will test you before you can become a trusted friend or lover. They will tell you a small secret and then check to see if you have shared it with anyone.
You fail the test and the meaningful part of the friendship is done. Scorpio makes a good detective or a spy because they seldom miss a detail and they are extremely perceptive.
Although they may not appear to be, Scorpios are unusually emotional and sensitive. They also are quick to help those in trouble.
A Scorpio is the person you would be wise to run to when you have a situation that needs a level head and a quick solution. They are the perfect problem-solvers. It would be wise not to get into combat of any kind with this fixed sign, since they are determined to win at any cost.
People born this week: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Oct. 26, 1947; Kelly Osbourne, Oct. 27, 1984; Bill Gates, Oct. 28, 1955; Winona Ryder, Oct. 29, 1971; Henry Winkler, Oct. 30, 1945; Willow Smith, Oct. 31, 2000; Jenny McCarthy, Nov. 1, 1981.
Full moon on Monday, Oct. 29, promises an end to the high emotional drama some have witnessed in the past week. Next challenge from the heavens will be Mercury retrograde, which starts on Nov. 6 at 6:04 p.m. So when the ballots are being counted in some states it will be during a retrograde. Then on the following Tuesday, Nov. 13, we will have a solar eclipse.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) Your love life will improve as you pull yourself out of the sad saga of Saturn. With Uranus in Aries and the promise of sudden love appearing from nowhere, keep your eyes and heart open. Mars in Sagittarius should do the trick. You should at least have a fling going on around you.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Romance is in the air and even you can take advantage of the full moon. Just be responsible and remember Saturn has moved in opposite your sun. That means fun also involves responsibility. With that in mind, it would be wise to avoid leaving things to luck.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Jupiter may be in Gemini, but Mars is in Sagittarius. So that indicates what appears delicious today could become really sour tomorrow. Take no chances right now and play the game according to the rules or you will end up without a prize and pie on your face. So take it slow.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Life should not be dull as we head toward the full moon on Monday. With that in mind gather your wits about you and head for a good time with your best pals. No more moody disagreements with anyone and you will feel just tip-top for the rest of the week. The payoff for hard work is arriving.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Like a good Leo you respond when your back is against the wall. Don’t let your guard down now because you have too much to lose. An old pal could really help you in a tense situation. So be sure to listen and follow the instructions. Then you will once again be the winner.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Remember when you work hard and follow your bliss you end up the winner. Don’t let other folks’ emotional nonsense get you down. No one can keep up with you. Both at home and work you are a champion, an in-charge soul. Know this and pull everything together and you will be the winner.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) With Venus about to enter Libra, it will be opposite Uranus, so if you are expecting the unexpected this will be a fun time. But if you expect life to remain status quo, then you are in for some surprises. Some social excitement is heading your way and it will liven your life.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Get in line for some added responsibilities, even if it is just watching your very own life more closely as Saturn visits Scorpio for two years. It is a time for your serious self to take over. A new venture could turn up on the horizon and offer you an opportunity to run the show.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Mars in Sagittarius offers you an opportunity to really move into an entirely new venture. Now is no time to hesitate. Know what you want to do and then get yourself into position to get it. There are plenty of adventurous people who would love to join your show of power.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) Don’t leave anything to chance now. You are in too deep to let any business opportunity pass you by. Granted you should not sign a contract from Nov. 6 until the 26, but you can sign now or wait a little. But watch the situation the entire time. You will be glad you did.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) If you are concerned about a few mistakes you made in the past, go back, correct them and move on. Look for a new tune when you are playing the game and a new companion to spice up your spare time. An old pal could turn up and settle into a new relationship. Get ready for some action.
Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) With Neptune in Pisces get ready for a starry-eyed adventure that will brighten your days and settle your nights. Your creative life should also have a new meaning as you walk down a different path to adventure. Stay away from alcohol since Neptune and gin do not get along at all.
