Cat-and-mouse game, anyone? The week is off to a seductive start as the Sun swirls into Scorpio on Monday, October 23. Anything too obvious will be a bore over the coming four weeks—and the person who exercises the most willpower wins all the toys. Scorpio Season reads more like a mystery novel than a rom-com, or make that bodice-ripping erotica.
Scorpio is the legendary sex symbol of the skies, and while we're under this zodiac sign's spell until November 21, our animal instincts will be potent. Pay attention to subtle cues and body language. Actions (and inactions) speak louder than words. Have you been waiting for the right moment to take a chance on romance? This Thursday, Jupiter, the galactic gambler, places his chips at the same degree of Scorpio as el Sol. Their combined energies will provide a Venti-size cup of courage to lovers. Talk to that crush or get real about the "more" that you want from a relationship. But plan your confession in private. That's where the magic happens when esoteric Scorpio is simmering in the skies.
Check your boudoir AND your balance sheet. Along with sex, Scorpio also governs money and power—nothing light and fluffy here, folks. Tap this cosmic energy to get healthy, wealthy, and wise. Start tucking more away for the future. No, that doesn't mean stuffing cash into a mattress or even a basic savings account that pays minuscule interest. Instead, have a portion of your paycheck automatically streamed into your 401(k) (or SEP IRA if you're self-employed). Is that all Greek to you? Time to learn the language of money! Head to the personal finance section of the bookstore and educate yourself on the basics. Scorpio is a nighthawk, so working behind the scenes—obsessively and after dark—could yield some serious genius. Think beyond the 9-to-5 grind and more along the lines of passive income. Could you create something that makes you money in your sleep? Think downloadable products or a network marketing business that syncs up with the work that you already do.
