Dreams and visions become more pronounced now that Neptune
is facing forward again. That yours are more risqu??, even raunchy, can
be attributed to pleasure-seeking Venus and passionate Pluto hooking up on Friday.
Experimental Uranus and the sexy Scorpio sun perfect their rewarding trine late
Saturday night, so Halloween parties can easily turn into no-holds-barred affairs.
Mercury slips across the Scorpio-Sagittarius border on Sunday an hour before
the time change. Monday, All Hallows' Eve presents us with another border to
venture across. No harm, no foul from your experience, because the Libra moon
goes void-of-course before darkness falls. The Scorpio new moon is exact November
1, the Day of the Dead, at 5:25 p.m. PST, and the first thing it does is square
Saturn, the planet of loss. The Scorpio sun does the same thing Wednesday night.
What a week!


The more exotic or erudite things get this weekend, the better. Unfamiliarity
breeds contentment as amenable Venus and sexy Pluto merge in Sagittarius, another
hot-to-trot fire sign. The sight of a stranger may turn you on; a practice you
hear about could lead to an entirely different, hopefully enlightening, experience.
Also keeping you on your toes is a surprise you sense might be in store, while
the mysterious Scorpio sun and erotic Uranus conspire to make this Halloween
memorable in more ways than one.


Idealistic, inspirational Neptune begins to inch forward after five months
holding hope for progress with your career at bay. Other things, such as your
involvement in a family matter or your reputation among your peers, may have
taken prominence in the interim. But now that generous Jupiter is transiting
your Scorpio house of allies, you can look forward to receiving favors from
educated, fair-minded people of means. Pay attention to events that follow the
Scorpio new moon on All Saints' Day, because they'll be a major concern by the
Taurus full moon.


Each new moon brings another area of your chart/life to center stage. Because
it takes place in your sixth house of work, service and health, the Scorpio
new moon arriving on the Day of the Dead may sound more ominous than it is.
Basically, this lunar cycle will give you an opportunity to do a better job
at work, to offer a service or discharge a debt and to pay more attention to
your health and that of your pets. They, too, are ruled by the sixth house.
If you need assistance, ask a much younger person who seems to have all the


A happy surprise this weekend as the sexy Scorpio sun and inventive Uranus
in Pisces aim their latest discovery in your direction – a prime example of
water signs taking care of their own. You can pretend that you don't care, but
get real; this gift originates in your solar fifth house of recreation and romance.
That's where the Scorpio new moon introduces a person or an amusement that should
hold your interest for, dare we say, the entire month. Assuming that your natal
Venus is in Cancer, not in two-at-a-time Gemini.


Your personal party season may already be under way, but it could reach fever
pitch this weekend when popular Venus meets passionate Pluto in Sagittarius,
another hot fire sign. There's no telling what'll follow this fortuitous hook-up,
especially since you seem so willing to embrace a brand-new, out-of-the-ordinary
Uranian experience. That it is also Halloween, with its bag of treats and tricks,
makes for perfect timing. But come next Wednesday, when your sun ruler tests
Saturn in your sign, the fun can suddenly get serious.


The tension generated by a household or family matter could erupt this weekend
as the people around you grow more reckless. The sexual heat also escalates
when voluptuous Venus and manipulative Pluto get together for devilish Halloween
hijinks. That the sexy Scorpio sun is urging rebellious Uranus in your house
of partners to circumvent tradition could add spice to the surprise already
in store. Then there's your burgeoning interest in a neighbor or a neighborhood
project, compliments of Tuesday's new moon.


Your financial picture brightens when the sun in your Scorpio money house favors
innovative, off-beat Uranus this weekend. Despite the implications, don't assume
that long shots will automatically pay off. Although you could tell yourself
that you're more in control than you have been lately, it's your Venus ruler's
merger with powerful Pluto that's doing the talking. Not that a mixture of affection,
artistry and lust is a bad thing, but the potion should be doled out judiciously,
as befits a well-balanced, divinely dressed-up-for-Halloween Libra.


Although discreet Scorpions often feel like sowing wild oats during the Halloween season, this year you can do it loudly and proudly. That's because irresistible Venus is attaching itself to your Pluto co-ruler in time for all the weekend festivities. How you turn this magnetic attraction into a cash cow is cloaked in mystery, but because the conjunction takes place in your Sagittarius money house, I'm sure you'll find a way. Vampira's kissing booth at a street fair? Remember to make Scorpio new-moon magic to back up this year's birthday wish. Call it insurance.


The weeks before solar Sagittarius begins are usually quiet, filled with retrospection,
meditation and, if you're attending enough events, medication. However, this
year you may feel either blessed or bothered, depending on whom you attract,
by the marriage of Venus and Pluto in your sign. Adorable, affable Venus increases
your desirability, while, appropriately enough for Halloween weekend, Pluto
concentrates on the grizzly and ghoulish. For an “easy-come, easy-go”
Centaur, the extra attention could become a burden you'd rather do without.


Air signs tend to scatter earth energy, and fire signs can scorch it. Because
you'll be nurtured by the supportive trine between the watery Scorpio sun and
inventive Uranus in oceanic Pisces, this weekend you can relax your guard. Some
Caps may even find a way to make money from or for an association they belong
to; others could do well for themselves. The new moon on the Tuesday before
Election Day may raise an issue you'll become more passionate about, a way to
redirect the frustration you'll encounter when the sun challenges your Saturn
ruler midweek.


You might not know for sure why you deserve it, but a reward of sorts should
come your way while the creative energy of the sun supports your individualistic
Uranus ruler. Small favors – a recommendation here, a compliment from a VIP
there, maybe a prize for the most outrageous costume – could lead to a financial
bonanza. During the weeks when the Scorpio sun occupies your midheaven, your
career usually gets a boost or you're able to spread your good name. Even more
so this year because expansive Jupiter is in Scorpio.


Water signs such as yours can benefit from the fresh surge of energy Tuesday's
Scorpio new moon provides. The question is: Will it dampen the excitement created
this weekend when iconoclastic Uranus in your sign gets zapped by the curious
Scorpio sun? How much of an outsider do you want to be, and where will all that
forward-thinking take you? Hopefully to someplace you've never been before.
Why? Because Scorpio rules your ninth house of foreign travel, ocean cruises,
philosophical forums and spiritual quests. Good to go?
