SCORPIO (October 23–November 21)
Mars in bold, assertive Aries and powerful Pluto in practical Capricorn support deliberate, focused, and sustained effort as you attempt to relaunch this phase of your life. Retrograde Mercury's square to Mars July 8 is repeated with Mercury Direct July 27. These parenthetical transits bookend seemingly insurmountable challenges, but by the end of the month persistent effort and more than a little bit of luck aid you in finding the answer—or the answer finds you. Courage is your resource and your cool-headed response to crisis brings appreciation and affirmation at the First Quarter Moon in Scorpio July 27.
