SCORPIO EN­COUR­AGES US TO BE FAS­CI­NATED by mys­ter­ies. Samhain, Hal­loween, All Souls Day, Day of the Dead — so many cul­tures honor this mys­te­ri­ous half­way point be­tween the au­tumn equinox and the win­ter sol­stice, when leaves fall and the re­al­ity of win­ter creeps in. It’s time to make friends with our beloved dead and lis­ten for su­per­nat­u­ral ad­vice.

Venus and Mars beau­ti­fully con­junct in Virgo in the predawn sky and keep our emo­tions strong, our sym­pa­thies and crit­i­cal na­tures cranked up, and our pas­sions simmering (in an in­tro­verted sort of way) all week long. We may be a lit­tle more sub­dued and self-con­scious than usual this Hal­loween.

On this hol­i­day week­end, Fri­day will be the wilder party night with the moon in flir­ta­tious, hu­mor­ous Gem­ini. The moon en­ters emo­tion-based Can­cer for a more in­tro­verted, in­tu­itive week­end. This time en­cour­ages us to stay home to com­mune with our an­ces­tors and sweeten the fu­ture by giv­ing treats to our fu­ture cit­i­zens, the chil­dren.

Mercury en­ters canny, fo­cused Scorpio on Mon­day and urges us past trivia to face un­com­fort­able truths. Watch for some ma­jor last-minute po­lit­i­cal grand­stand­ing as the moon en­ters Leo on Mon­day. By mid­week, we’re back to work with fresh de­ter­mi­na­tion and a new un­der­stand­ing of the prag­matic lo­gis­tics needed for our next phase.

FRI­DAY, OCT. 30: The mood is se­ri­ous with a funny streak and gra­cious with awk­ward mo­ments. We get fussy eas­ily mid­day; we need to use our mus­cles in a good way and be care­ful not to trip over our cos­tumes. Evening brings a won­der­fully fan­tas­ti­cal and dreamy sun-Nep­tune trine that en­cour­ages us to let go of or­di­nary re­al­ity.

SATUR­DAY, OCT. 31: We fo­cus on the in­tan­gi­ble; our imag­i­na­tion and in­tu­ition are ac­ti­vated as the moon en­ters sen­si­tive, self-con­scious, deep-feel­ing Can­cer. Our re­cep­tiv­ity to impressions, art, drama, ghosts, and ghost sto­ries in­creases. This Hal­loween may be more in­tro­spec­tive and less party-hearty than usual. Di­ges­tion could be sen­si­tive, so con­sider of­fer­ing healthy treats.

SUN­DAY, NOV. 1: Per­haps it’s the sugar crash or the cranky, melan­choly moon-Pluto op­po­si­tion, but the en­ergy shifts in­ward. It’s easy to feel miffed or right­eous when what we’re re­ally feel­ing is eas­ily hurt and mar­tyred. The evening is warm and so­cia­ble as the moon sex­tiles Venus and Mars.

MON­DAY, NOV. 2: Mercury en­ters Scorpio, the moon en­ters Leo, and to­gether they bring out both our sus­pi­cious streak and our de­sire to vis­i­bly up­stage. We can have flash, charisma, and a long­ing for a more ex­cit­ing life as Venus con­juncts Mars; some peo­ple will look for an ar­gu­ment, so watch for a pug­na­cious sparkle in the eye. It’s bet­ter to love than to fight.

TUES­DAY, NOV. 3: Elec­tion Day starts out on a touchy note. Dif­fer­ences can ir­ri­tate or­di­nar­ily pleas­ant partnerships in the morn­ing. We may feel bar­raged by in­ac­cu­rate hy­per­bole. By din­ner­time, a sense of re­lief and aware­ness kicks in.

WED­NES­DAY, NOV. 4: Have a pri­vate hissy fit about some­thing that dis­ap­points or ir­ri­tates and then pick up the pieces, soothe egos, and tackle the sim­ple lo­gis­ti­cal dif­fi­cul­ties re­quired. We need to an­a­lyze and or­ga­nize. A new sense of de­ter­mined or­ga­ni­za­tion kicks in tonight as the moon en­ters Virgo.

THURS­DAY, NOV. 5: We feel the winds of change as the sun sex­tiles Pluto, but we don’t re­ally want to hear sweep­ing state­ments; we want to feel tan­gi­ble ef­forts in­stead. Show sup­port and com­pe­tence through con­crete log­i­cal next steps and spe­cific com­pli­ments. Go very lightly on the crit­i­cism with one an­other; we’re all in a re­assess­ment process.
