Venus moves into Scorpio this week, so affairs of the heart may take a more seductive – or manipulative – turn. Emotions run deep during this energy, and an opposition between Venus and Uranus could signify an intoxicating attraction, or a very unwelcome surprise. There’s also a tough square between the sun and Saturn so don’t mess with authority.

So more about Venus in Scorpio where it will be until November 1st… it’s all about deep intimacy and intense passion. You won’t have much patience for superficial connections or casual dating, preferring to relate to a few close friends and one significant other. When you get involved, you want to give all of yourself and reveal the very core of your being. However, because of the intensity of your feelings at this time, you might be afraid of scaring people away, and could have a tendency to hold back or conceal your emotions.

If you’re in a partnership, this could be an excellent time to deepen your bond and strengthen your sense of trust. But you may need to work through some of the shadow sides of Scorpio to get there — jealousy, abandonment, and betrayal. The more you’re willing to expose yourself by sharing your deepest thoughts and feelings, the better your chances for regenerating your relationship and transforming old patterns.

The Venus-Uranus opposition will be trying for the fixed signs. Many folks feel unbearably restless, bored and dissatisfied during the course of this transit. Everyone wants to feel different and unique. And when just about everyone is feeling that way, things could get dicey.

Try something out of the ordinary but not too shocking. At work, strange impulses and ideas don’t win any favors with our superiors. Maybe we should keep those crazy thoughts to ourselves. Life in the romance department may not be any easier. We’re too easily inappropriately aroused or attracted to someone we’d ordinarily sneer at. Some people throw caution to the wind and engage in risky behavior under this influence. Rarely does this have the desired effect. Impetuous behavior can hurt the pocketbook, too. Leave the credit card at home today, because an impulsive purchase made now may later be upsetting.



Sensuality is a key factor this week, so it’s the perfect time for getting closer to your lover. Within a relationship, however, be aware that the power dynamics may be shifting. Avoid emotional manipulation, secrets and tortured promises.




With Venus now in your romance zone, there’s a definite zing in your step. Whether you’re single and looking for love or already happily attached, your heart is singing and you’re finding it a joy to be around people.




Teamwork is restored at work, even if your relationships with your colleagues have been strained recently. You have the knack now of saying and doing the right thing to smooth over any cracks, so keep using your tact and keep on smiling.




A playful love life is very rewarding this week but watch out for a touch too much drama. If there’s anything illicit going on, this energy will raise the stakes, enormously so. Honesty is always the bravest policy, but is it always the best?




There’s a sentimental and nostalgic vibe around, especially within the home. As even the most difficult family members become easier to handle, you’ll want to spend time making your home a warm and welcoming place. It’s a great time to redecorate!




Your diplomacy skills are in strong demand right now, so don’t be surprised if you’re called upon to mediate between friends or family members. Away from this drama, you should enjoy a cordial, friendly week, with lots of social opportunities.




You’ve always loved a touch of luxury but watch out now for over-spending. Learn to value who you are inside, rather than how much money you have. Your inner resourcefulness draws others to your side, especially if you’re currently single.




With Venus now in your own sign, your softer, more nurturing side is on display. This is a great week for adopting a new pet, making friends with wildlife or babysitting someone’s kids. The vulnerable are drawn to you, and you to them.




A secretive edge to your love life could prove exciting – or disastrous. By all means spice things up between the two of you, but if you’re considering breaking the rules of love, you can expect to be found out. And to pay the price.




This week, shared interests with friends will be exceptionally rewarding. If you’re single, you don’t feel that you’re missing out and the loneliness you sometimes suffer from is gone. It’s a lovely time to appreciate those around you.




Use your charm at work to help you make progress. You’re coming across now as likeable, competent and trustworthy, so job interviews should go well. Relationships with colleagues are improved too, and your boss may be eating out of your hand.




You’re hankering after something new and different this week – something a little bit exotic, perhaps. Try new cuisines, visit new places, strike up new friendships with people from very different backgrounds to your own. There’s a big wide world out there.
