LIBRA (Sept 24-Oct 23)
It seems like you have to carry an extra pen to keep track of numbers and dates. These days are especially designed for love and passion, you favorite duo in your state of affairs. Use your common sense. Good friends want to share with you now, but don't ask for career favors. Keep a low profile. This time you're willing to give and expect little back. Avoid being egotistical and developing bad habits.
SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22).
You need to be discreet when it comes to money matters. The moon puts you in touch with your roots; contact distant relatives. Revisiting the past could be a source of insight or revelations. Keeping suspicions in perspective and being more reflective is one way to avoid locking horns with someone over who's in charge. Someone drops an obligation in your lap and you feel drained. Upkeep is a priority.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec 21)
I won't tell you to hold onto your money, but put some aside so you can enjoy Halloween. A desire to chase could bring careless actions or conflict. When karma king Saturn moves in Libra on the 29th, how you handle taking responsibility in personal relationships and maintaining balance are the lessons and its up to you to set the pattern for the next two years. So don't tilt the wagon. And try to add acquaintances to your circle.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20)
Shared resources, loans, credit, investments turn out to be more agitating that harmonious. But the tone will shift after the 20th and you feel you are the grand master of communications and understanding. You also realize the importance of your perceptions. You can maneuver yourself into a better position financially. You can make a difference. Accentuate the positive. Have some social fun!
AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 19)
For you the need for self-control is Saturn's first test. An ambitious course of study, business-related travel, or training now will prepare you for the future. Also revise your viewpoints on life, religion, values and spirituality as they mature and crystallize from unformed to specific. Discipline helps you increase your knowledge and achieve your goals. Do nothing that can threaten your credit.
PISCES (Feb 20-March 20)
Saturn entering Libra will bring challenges and tests. You'll need to stand by serious commitments but with restraint and balance, able to be in a relationship and share its assets without losing yourself to another's needs or letting someone control your money and you. Someone may use charm to manipulate. A new profitable cycle opens up for you. Being kind doesn't cost anything. Heed any bits of advice.
ARIES (March 21-April 20)
Saturn breaks down the rose-colored vision and the dreamy state to more practical necessity. But after the 23rd a magical intimacy will explore not only sexual meaning but the hidden meaning of life itself. You have to consider the other person's perspective - that is your first lesson in compromise and conciliation. Emphasis on teamwork and public relations. Powerful energy needs careful direction.
TAURUS (April 21-May21)
Your best bet? Ignore the pushy provocation and use this initiatory energy to amp your skills and get your own projects ready to roll. If a partnership has brown down, at the end of the month you'll have a change of renewed bonds and celebration, while some feel an urge to commit. Expect positive news in the world of finance. Work on fear of loss and jealousy. Listen to your dreams for an answer.
GEMINI (May 22-June 21)
Libra's new moon on the 18th is magical for romance if you let your energy flow. A better use of the electric charge in sports or exercise. You don't want to burn yourself out too quickly, do you? Strengthen a relationship with one whose love has meaning. Your wit and humor gain admirers and don't forget to pass on a compliment. Stay away from anxiety with some money or business deal. Consider proposals and plans.
CANCER (June 22-July 22)
Saturn's lesson moving into Libra and your fourth house is to stand up for yourself and learn mood control, setting the stage for challenges and lessons. Responsibility and commitment to home and family. Your first lesson is communion and compromise. Improve your environment, sewing your future benefits. Avoid neglecting counsel from friends. You may be tested in work efforts and daily routine.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22)
Good financial news, so for the first time in a long time you'll be able to relax and stop feeling so stressed out about money matters. Hard work brings benefits - and compliments too. Vitality is excellent so "go for the gold" and put your best efforts out there. A sense of humor is one of your gifts and really helps. Unpredictable emotions may raise havoc. Avoid speaking sharply to those around you. Try to display your mental capacity.
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 23)
Learning discipline and emotional control is your first test of Saturn. He becomes a teacher of your universe. It may bring challenges, restrictions, tests, and hard work but it will bring balance to your material world and maturity and stability to your sense of self-worth. Protect your personal belongings. Some will consider plans for a trip. Avoid spending for unworthy causes.
