Your Horoscope This Week

Nothing can take down Halloween this year — not even the fact that it falls on a Tuesday. First off, the sun and social Mercury are simmering in mystical Scorpio, lending a spooky-sexy vibe to the night. Secondly, the moon will be in Pisces, the sign of fantasy and illusion. It's never too late to watch a makeup tutorial or weave some next level creative touches, like lights and sound, into your costume. Or pull together one of these badass looks with a mere four products.

Keep your werewolf mask handy for the weekend, because there will be a full moon to howl at on Saturday. This one falls in earthy, grounded Taurus, bringing a huge reality check to the world. Just the facts, please! Yes, we know those seem increasingly difficult to verify. But these no bullshit moonbeams could whip up a batch of Proof Pudding. And starting Sunday, there's no such thing as "too real" as mouthy Mercury embarks on an extended voyage through outspoken Sagittarius. Due to a signal-scrambling retrograde (consider yourself warned) from December 3 to 22, the messenger planet hovers in Sag until January 11. And no, this doesn't have to Scrooge your holiday season. But if there's an authentic conversation you need to have with a loved one, make time for a heart to heart — and the ensuing repair work — before December 3.

Scorpio
October 23 to November 21

There’s no such thing as “too much” for you this Halloween, Scorpio — not with the moon beaming into your flamboyant and theatrical fifth house on Tuesday. Tear a page from Scorpio Ru Paul’s runway liner notes. Sequined gowns, ginormous wigs, fabulous makeup — now you’re talking. Just keep an eye on your budget, as expenses could pile up fast. Instead of hitting that high-end lounge before jumping into the real party, invite your celebratory squad over for candy apple martinis to get the fiesta started. And feel free to flirt like a werewolf on the prowl.

Cupid's got some treats up his sleeve for you this weekend, too, thanks to Saturday's full moon in Taurus and your seventh house of relationships. An unspoken attraction could finally erupt into something physical — ooh la la. If you've been dating for a while, don't be mysterious about the "next level" you see for the two of you. Confessing to your vision of love could get things plunging in a deeper direction. Partnerships of every variety are blessed by these moonbeams. The struggle is real, but maybe it's time to turn that laborious solo project into a tag team effort?

Sagittarius
November 22 to December 21

Break out the vampire blood punch recipe and dim the lights. With the moon haunting your domestic fourth house this Monday, there's a good chance you'll be hosting Halloween at Chez Archer. (Possibly dressed as fellow Sagittarius Taylor Swift in one of her many video incarnations...) Leave a box of candy out for the trick-or-treaters. Then, push back the furniture, cue up the playlist, and turn your living room into a monster's ball. Need to get out? Skip the crowded clubs and head to a house party where you can huddle in the corner with a costumed creature who looks just as hot when the mask is off.

If you haven't polished off the last bite-sized Butterfinger by Saturday, donate it to a friend's candy jar. With a full moon in Taurus landing in your wellness zone, salubrious self-care is the name of the game. Consider this your wakeup call to ward off seasonal bugs — and to give a new type of exercise a try. Drop in to a few fun classes or try a different yoga studio (hot yoga, perhaps?) There could be some exciting developments at the office under this full moon, too — and money could roll in as a result of the past six months you spent toiling away. Feeling stymied by an overblown project? A simple plan works best under this lunar lift. Scale back and stop making it so complicated.

Capricorn
December 22 to January 19

No mask, no costume? No problem! With Monday's crafty starmap, a clever makeup scheme could bring the pop. A quick stop at the drugstore and a steady hand are all that's required. Consider teaming up with a friend on your scheme. You could slay as matching mimes or mermaids. You'll be in quite the social groove, so plan to stay up late, without staying in one place too long. Why, yes, you can check out a parade, stop by two parties, and bring down the house with a karaoke rendition of "Time Warp."

Saturday's full moon in Taurus electrifies your fifth house of fame, leadership, and romance. The performer in you is out to play, so set modesty aside and grab the mic. Over the next two weeks, try an improv class, drag friends to karaoke, or even try out for a legit role in a film. Romantically, this full moon could activate your love mojo with a new crush — or finally inspire some engagement ring hunting or talks about bambinos. Single sans strings? You could have your hands full of admirers this weekend IRL or via the right right swipes.

Aquarius
January 20 to February 18

No need to tame your sweet tooth this Monday, Aquarius. Halloween arrives with a Pisces moon shining in your decadent second house. Indulge in a high-end version of trick-or-treating by sampling some artisanal chocolates or pumpkin desserts at a fancy patisserie. Organize friends for a masquerade ball or a Halloween-themed dinner theater that serves amazing food while you watch a performance. And if part of the ticket price goes to charity, all the better for your humanitarian sign.

Devote the weekend to feathering your nest as Saturday's full moon in Taurus lights up your domestic fourth house. Maybe it's as basic as rearranging the furniture to open up the space or toning down a few of the bright-colored patterns with calming neutrals. Is it time to find a new place to hang your wide-brimmed hat? The perfect listing could reveal itself within two weeks, so start scouring Zillow and Craigslist to see what's opening up. Living with roomies? Tension could erupt this weekend, but in a way that helps you clear the air. Looks like it's time to create some cohesive house rules. Discuss!

Pisces
February 19 to March 20

You are so winning Halloween this Tuesday as the moon makes a magical stop in your sign for the celebration. Did your weekend costume wind up in a crumpled heap of dirty laundry? No problem! Pulling together a last-minute replacement could bring out your humor and your genius, so just go shopping in your own closet for your DIY disguise. Friends will see you as their pack leader, so do a little pre-game research and find out what parties and events are going on — and avoid wandering around aimlessly like a Walking Dead zombie gone astray.

Ready to expand your social horizons? Saturday's full moon in Taurus and your outgoing third house gives you butterfly wings. You won't have to flutter too far from the cocoon to find your fix. Local venues, from pubs to yoga studios, will have all the entertaining options you need. The culture vulture in you could use some fresh fodder. Devote part of the weekend to downloading music and audiobooks and checking out the latest Instagram poet's feed. Clear your Netflix queue and watch some TED talks on YouTube. Have you outgrown your go-to crew? Kindred spirits crop up this weekend or you could realize that a casual friend crush is worthy of a BFF upgrade!

Aries
March 21 to April 19

Lights, camera…costume? With the Pisces moon in your insanely imaginative 12th house this Halloween, you’ll be inspired to level up beyond the basics. Could you add some LED strands to make your getup glow, or wear a portable Bluetooth speaker for mobile sound effects? Let your imagination run wild. But don’t slip away when it’s time to drop the emotional mask. This could be one of the most heartfelt Halloweens you’ve had in a while. ‘Fess up to your feelings, even if you do so in your best Count Dracula accent.

Saturday's full moon in Taurus could bring a windfall for Rams who've been working hard for the past six months. Have you been coasting or suffering through a job you hate? You could wake up this weekend and realize it's time for a major change. Polish up your résumé and LinkedIn, but don't stop there. With savvy Mercury heading into Sagittarius and your entrepreneurship zone from Sunday until January 11, a side hustle could fund your holiday shopping, vacation — and beyond. Don't overthink it, Aries, just get started and let your venture develop as you go.

Taurus
April 20 to May 20

With Tuesday’s moon in your collaborative 11th house, group costume goals could come to life this Halloween. Rally friends into a zombie herd — or don the long, black wigs and lip plumper and go as the Kardashian-Jenner Krew. But consider yourself on notice: Do not drag any needy friends along for the ride. You’ll be in the mood to mingle and might defect from your squad before the night is through, especially if a sexy witch or warlock puts you under a spell. The 11th house rules activism, so consider dressing up as a badass feminist icon and beaming out empowered women vibes to all the sisters in celebration.

This Saturday, there's not a ceiling that can hold you as 2017's full moon in Taurus electrifies the skies. Put your best hooves forward and let the world know what you're capable of. The two weeks that follow this full moon are your time to shine and, by extension, advance your hard work of the past six months into the spotlight. If you're ready to break free from a restrictive relationship, consider this full moon your jailbreak. But don't blame bae if you've been letting your independent interests lapse. Diving back into your own life can bring partnerships back into balance.

Gemini
May 21 to June 20

Hustling on Halloween? Nothing wrong with that, Gemini. With the moon in your career corner on Tuesday, those masquerade balls could double as an opportunity to rub elbows with the influencers. Tuck a few business cards into your costume and let your get-up become the icebreaker — and a way to flaunt your creative skills. What begins as mutual appreciation could evolve into talks about professional goals, and a power lunch later this week.

Don't overload your schedule this weekend. On Saturday, the full moon in Taurus lands in your 12th house of healing and rejuvenation. If you put anything on the calendar, make it a massage or a full-on spa day. But most Geminis will be content to putter around the house and, once rested, to give your space a long overdue deep clean. Don't be surprised if the muse pops by for a visit. Take off the rubber gloves and to write that poetic stanza or get those song lyrics into an audio note! On Sunday, messenger Mercury makes two your magic number, floating into your partnership house until January 11. Intellect and killer conversation are the winning qualities for you now, Gem, so don't judge a book by its cover.

Cancer
June 21 to July 22

With the moon in your travel sector this Tuesday, take a pass on downing pumpkin homebrews with your pals. You, Cancer, should be out celebrating in a new environment. Say "yes" to a friend’s invitation to go a party at a new venue — or even drive 10 miles out of the city to check out a legit haunted house in the woods. Leave the early birds (and the angry birds) off your guest list and fete the night with free-spirited people who can flow spontaneously from a house party to an underground club where a DJ is playing a secret set.

You tend to roll with a close-knit crew, but open up your guest list this weekend. Saturday's full moon in Taurus lands in your communal, collaborative 11th house. A pal's plus-one could turn out to be the very person you keep saying you need to meet but never know where to find. Detour away from the usual venues and tag along with friends to the places they love going. These moonbeams also activate your inner geek. Update your gadgets and think about learning a new digital skill to increase your earnings.

Leo
July 23 to August 22

A sultry Halloween is in store for Leos this Tuesday as the moon hovers in your erotic and esoteric eighth house. These otherworldly vibes could set the stage for a soul-baring conversation with someone who has left you mystified for months. And while you’re never one to miss a masquerade-based event, you might prefer something more intimate this year. Slip off early from the crowded soirees and slip out of your costume for a private celebration of your own.

Don't ignore your work email this weekend, not with Saturday's full moon in Taurus activating your 10th house of career. It's not that you should go running into the office, Leo. But a "grab it now or lose it" opportunity could hit your inbox and this one could launch you into a bigger league. Or, you could wake up feeling a little dissatisfied, knowing that you've outgrown your current post and it's time to upgrade. Spend the weekend in the company of ambitious and successful friends. Get their guidance on next steps and find out their secrets to job satisfaction. One of them might even have a promising lead to share.

Virgo
August 23 to September 22

Grab your best friend or your S.O. and put your heads together, quick! With the moon in your partnership zone this Tuesday, you could pair up for the costume parties — and maybe even snag the grand prize for your combined ingenuity. Single Virgos will be in fine flirting form, but bat those glitter lashes mindfully. With the boundary-challenged Pisces moon hovering overhead, you could unwittingly seduce a friend’s plus-on or fall for the hit-it-and-quit-it type. Ask the right questions early and you’ll be home free.

If you wake up in your own bed on Saturday, you probably won't be there long. Wanderlust hits you hard, thanks to the full moon in Taurus and your worldly ninth house. Give your nomadic side a turn at the wheel and go for a drive to check out the fall foliage or visit a friend in another city. (And now that you're reading this, you can plan ahead and book the Airbnb for Friday through Sunday.) No matter your Google Earth coordinates, devote the weekend to diversifying your friend group and mingling at more multi-cultural venues. Seeing the world through different perspectives will broaden your own lens on life. Intersectionality is the name of the game.

Libra
September 23 to October 22

Your spooky celebration might be more about acts of service than swinging from the chandeliers this Tuesday. With the moon in your helpful sixth house, you’d have a fun time passing out candy, taking your nieces and nephews trick-or-treating, or helping a friend prep for her house party. These moonbeams are also illuminating your wellness corner, steering you away from all those seasonal sugar bombs. But come on, Libra, you don’t have to be that extreme about it. All things in moderation, as they say. Dress up, have a few treats — and sure, sip the La Croix and play DD for your squad. A sober celebration can be every bit as fun. (Where’s that karaoke mic?)

A sultry weekend is in store, thanks to the moon hovering in Taurus and your erotic eight house. If you've been making eyes at someone for a while, it's time to break the ice and have a legit conversation. Ignore the butterflies and dive in — you could be up chatting (and other things) until the wee hours. Coupled Libras could hit a make-it-or-break-it milestone under these moonbeams. You just can't ignore your deeper desires anymore, but don't forget that it's also your job to clue bae in on what you need romantically. Already tried that and feeling like a broken record? Then it's time to remember that there are plenty of fish in the sea.
