The Libra new moon late Saturday night should fill us with harmonious, peace-seeking vibrations. However the sun's meeting with militant Mars late Sunday suggests something else entirely. More confusion on Monday as first the sun, then Mars switch to a "stick to your guns" Scorpio mode. On Tuesday, Venus also enters that secretive, security-conscious water sign. If you're planning a tryst sometime soon, schedule it for late Tuesday so you can take advantage of the heat generated by feminine Venus' conjunction with masculine Mars. Wednesday brings the last square between Saturn in Leo and Jupiter in Scorpio, the relationship alleged to account for fluctuations in the real estate market. Prepare for the 28th, when Mercury turns retrograde for the next three weeks.
Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19
You are strong, you are invincible and right now you are quite desirable. Your Mars ruler, by joining forces with the Libra sun on Sunday, could provide more power than you know what to do with. Even highly-trained athletes will be amazed at what they're able to accomplish this week. But it's the merger of Mars with magnetic Venus Tuesday night (and for the rest of the week) in sexy Scorpio that'll raise your level of "hot!" Venus gets together with Mars every year, but for their hookup to happen in passionate Scorpio, is a special treat. Enjoy.
Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20
Read for Aries. While you might not have the physical stamina afforded to Rams this week, Bulls will certainly have as much sex appeal. And because Mars' meeting with your Venus ruler takes place in Scorpio, the sign of your cosmic mate, you could make a more permanent connection. Perhaps even with a gad-about Ram. So by all means hit every one of those Halloween events dressed to the nines so that you can be ready for the allure you'll radiate when the Scorpio sun illuminates Venus on the 27th.
Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20
The Libra new moon on the 21st takes place in your house of romance and risk. If ever you're being urged by the cosmos to take a chance, this week would be it. While your Mercury ruler is about to turn retrograde (giving you some time to mull over your decision), its first meeting with far-sighted Jupiter over the weekend should improve your ability to envision what lies ahead. Two more encounters with the jolly giant planet before the holiday party season sets in, and whatever you finally decided will be a fait accompli.
Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
It's confusing. Two new moons in a row taking place in the last degree of their signs could send a Moon Child a mixed message. In September you barely had enough time to absorb the Virgo new moon vibe and the sense that a new cycle was about to start when the sun went into Libra. The same holds true this month with the Libra new moon on the 21st and the sun's switch into Scorpio on the 23rd, an entirely different operational system. Let's hope you get used to it; for the rest of the year, that's how those balls in the sky will bounce.
Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
It works both ways. The advantage Aries and Taurus natives receive when their ruling planets are bolstered by a meeting with your sun ruler is returned in kind. You'll have more physical prowess and a greater willingness to take a chance because the sun and ballsy Mars connect this weekend. And you can anticipate a lot more loving when the sun merges with affectionate Venus next weekend. That all this action takes place in and around your neighborhood is reason enough to spruce up the house. Decorate it for Halloween, buy new sheets.
Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sep. 22
The discriminating Virgin could get quite lucky when the creative sun, impulsive Mars and value-conscious Venus get together in your second house of money earned and objects acquired. The lucky part is that this sequence of astrological events takes place before your Mercury ruler turns retrograde on the 28th. So you'll have a few days to make that fabulous purchase or return it if it doesn't meet your pristine standards. With Mars and Venus together in sexy Scorpio for the first time since December 2004, imagine the fun you can have this Halloween.
Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22
Read for Aries, Taurus and Leo; what the hell, read all 12. No one can ever be certain how a memorable meeting between your loving Venus ruler and horny Mars will turn out, but the above forecasts could provide a clue. Then when the sun catches up with the goddess and engulfs her with its beneficial rays on the 27th, you may be inspired to create something beautiful that'll last longer than the day. At the very least, you might feel a lot happier and a lot luckier than you usually are. P.S. Mercury flips in your Scorpio money house on the 28th; buy what you must before then.1
