SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)
Proceed with extreme caution October 1–6. Mars opposes Chiron, Mercury retrograde squares Pluto, Venus sextiles Pluto before Pluto goes direct. Control your temper October 8–9 when the Sun and Mercury retrograde conjunct Mars. Intense power struggles are avoidable when warned: October 17 is one of those days when Sun squares Pluto. The more you exercise self-control and extreme focus, the less likely you’ll succumb to the temptation to use your power to crush your enemies October 18–22 with Mars trine Jupiter and square Pluto. Ready for a slow simmer when Mars enter Scorpio October 30? The heat is on.
