Week of: Oct. 23 - 29

Aries [3/23-4/20]: your half Birthday is over now, you can go back to work. The last couple of weeks have been unsteady, but you can now return, as of the end of this week, you now have my permission to get back to your steady state. Stability. Peace, calm. Parties. Action. There's an annoying trend which shows up -- just when you can calm down again, you stir up your own mischief. Don't blame me or your stars at this point.

Taurus [4/21-5/22]: You know, you can't have an eclipse in Scorpio without some collateral damage in Taurus. Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water. Just when you thought it was safe. Just when you thought. See the reduction pattern here? "Just when you thought..." Quit thinking for this week. Everyone else is going to be a bundle of raw emotions, why should you be in different? Your reaction timing will be a bit off, but you reactions will land in the center of the target. Do not fight with any Scorpio's, though, you'll only get hurt.

Gemini [5/23-6/21]: Well, my dear Gemini, you are certainly feeling a lot more centered now that you're reading this, aren't you? It's okay, that centered, self-contained feeling of warmth and happiness will depart as soon as you tear yourself away from this screen. The good news is that a decent relationship is on the horizon, that is, if you're not already involved in GOOD relationship. If it's got some unhealthy aspects, consider seeking professional help, whatever that means to you.

Cancer [6/22-7/22]: Bad news, poor, impoverished Cancer friend: relationship woes are still on the horizon. Good news, wonderful; Cancer friend: money problems look as if they might start resolving themselves in a positive way. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. Get prepared to make some serious jack this week. Sorry about the insignificant other thing, though.

Leo [7/23-8/23]: If I weren't another Fire sign, I would be envious of you Leo's -- yes, it's going to be that good. There's a tricky bit at the first of the week, the thing about the eclipse and all in Scorpio, but (small caveat here) as long as you don't bite off any Scorpio's heads, you will be fine. You could conquer just about anything right now. You will find that as the week goes by, you will feel a tremendous amount of physical stamina. Go work out or something.

Virgo [8/24-9/23]: Well there could be nothing finer than sitting in East Texas in the Liner Diner (just outside of Henderson, TX kind of close to Tyler). Things are looking up this week in way you would not believe! Get your sweet self out of the house and on down the road! Everything which has conspired to make your life miserable for the last few days is going to lend you a great, huge, helping hand. Make the most of it.

Libra [9/24-10/23]: The last vestiges of the Libra season are over now. That's the bad news. The good news is that all of this upsetting and unsettling stuff is going to happen in some other signs so for once, and this fall it is a good thing, for once, you are about to be left alone. Enjoy the return of peace and tranquility. Enjoy the calm. You might feel the fallout from the Scorpio eclipse, so read Scorpio, too.

Scorpio [10/24-11/23]: Look, you got to understand, I'm not just picking on Scorpio's because they make such got targets. But speaking about target action, the Sun and the Moon conspire to make your poor life that much worse. And then there's devilish harmonic between this eclipse on the 24th, and your ruler Pluto. "Eclipse?" you ask. Yup, October 24, around 4 in the morning, certain parts of the planet, the Moon gets in the way of the Sun. Emotions try to over rule any rational decisions. And it's at Zero Scorpio which means every last one of you will act foolish for a day, a week, a month, maybe even YEARS. I'm certainly glad we cleared that up. No fishing with dynamite this week. It might blow up in your face.

Sagittarius [11/24-12/21]: if you haven't figured it out already, which actually might be the case, there is a strong change headed your way. First, the little red one (Mars) brings his energy into your sign. And then there's a wind up for the pitch coming from all the planets in just a little while. Is your insurance paid up? Ready to win the lottery? Ready to go to France? Which will it be?

Capricorn [12/22-1/20]: Oh boy, the years, especially the last couple of years, have just not been too kind to you have they? If it hasn't been one thing, then it's been another. Relax a little bit, tell your family to go soak their collective heads in a small body of water -- they need a break from you. You should feel like there are some big, and finally good, changes being blown in by the autumn breezes.

Aquarius [1/21-2/18]: Now, most practitioners of this intuitive art form would be telling you how wonderful everything is. While that may be true for a conventional sign, remember, your different than most. So. Perhaps you have enjoyed some fruits of your labor at work. Now it's time to consider (remember, I just said consider) adding to this by getting some schooling of some kind. Like graduate school. Post graduate work. Seminars, workshops, whatever it takes to further your education, now is the time to act on it.

Pisces [2/19-3/22]: There's this slow, inescapable feeling that that a serious entropy has set in within your sign. Things are slowly just sort of falling apart. The body doesn't have the bounce it used to, the vitality is gone, the warm autumn nights seem to be a harbinger of an early winter with the hint of coldness seeping into your bones. Relax, it's just that ugly reality word again, and it some of the work stuff is about to get fixed. Trust me, I know of what I speak.
