Saturn entering Scorpio alleviates some social conservatism and spells trouble for plutocrats. Mars, Venus and Mercury all changing signs at the same time will help people develop strategies to make sure of that.


LIBRA  Sep 23-Oct 22
Life will get a little easier, but finances continue to be a problem. Helping others who have it worse will help you keep perspective. Take time alone to prioritize your goals and vent frustrations.

SCORPIO  Oct 23-Nov 21
The real world is dragging you out of yourself, but doesn’t look real. To stay oriented, keep your priorities in mind and your wallet in your pocket. Bring creative and empathetic insights into use.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22-Dec 20
Friends will disappoint you — they’re only human and you’re not perfect! Sort through your negativity to lift yourself out of it. Your positive energy will return soon.

CAPRICORN  Dec 21-Jan 19
Your ruler, Saturn, entering Scorpio will take you past a career peak into 60 months of winnowing your friends to those you really value and trust. The future looks bleaker than it is, but you’re enduring and resourceful. Time is always on your side.

AQUARIUS  Jan 20-Feb 18
Your ruler, Saturn, entering the top of your chart signals a 60-month career peak. Work hard and shine! Don’t let promises of success tempt you to extravagances.

PISCES  Feb 19-Mar 19
Home is an uncertain respite from the world’s troubles if your problems won’t leave your head. As worries come into focus, so can solutions. Accept encouragements from others even if they seem fuzzy and meaningless.

ARIES  Mar 20-Apr 19
Think carefully about your goals. Your ruler Mars entering Sagittarius makes you more open and impulsive, but reality and disappointment will slap back at you. You can handle it.

TAURUS  Apr 20-May 20
To clarify questions about the future, grasp creative challenges. Hard work brings focus. Don’t do it alone. Ask your partner or a friend to help improve a relationship — or end a bad one.

GEMINI  May 21-Jun 20
Get to work! While energy is high, clear the decks, set goals and build momentum. When you hit a wall, ask an authority in your field for help. The answer need not make logical sense.

CANCER  Jun 21-Jul 22
Living up to your promises is largely a matter of managing your moods. Friends want to help if you only give them a chance. Take time to be alone so you can charge and be ready to dig in.

LEO  Jul 23-Aug 22
Focusing your energy into the community makes you a force to be reckoned with. Don’t reckon wrong. Your challenge is to listen and really hear what others need. Be helpful, not meddlesome.

VIRGO  Aug 23-Sep 22
Nice or nasty? Venus brings charm and grace to your sign. You’ll need it with other planets giving you a hard critical edge that could easily misfire. As always, focus your critical brilliance.
