Scorpio (October 22nd to November 21st)

The Sun and Venus all join your patron planet, Mars, to sally forth in Aries this week. Aries signs off on that part of your sign’s Zodiac Lounge where you constantly have to begin again and remember where to put priorities first. Traditionally, this part deals with routines, health, work, service and servants. You probably know where I’m going. If not, I’ll be blunt: this is when isht gets real about all those things. You might not have been living in a “la-la land” for the last few weeks; but the Muses have been at your beck and call to help you initiate and gently mold ideas, projects or perhaps even romances. Now, the Muses haven’t not exactly forsake you, but they’re counting on you to use more muscle, less Muse. Don’t go for the okie-doke to look for quick fixes or easy answers. You’ll have to roll up your sleeves and work more for real results.
