Your Horoscope This Week

Sex, secrets, and subterfuge! Your life could start feeling a lot like that of an undercover operative this Tuesday as supersizer Jupiter swings into Scorpio until November 8, 2018. The red-spotted planet has spent the past 13 months in Libra, the sign that rules justice. And while we've seen plenty of injustice since then, there has also been unity and activism akin to what we saw in the 1960s. As Jupiter shines his stadium-bright beams in Scorpio's chamber of secrets, we may finally get some answers about all the scandals and corruption that have been in the news (and some we didn't even know were going down). On a personal level, do make sure all your private data is properly stored and protected — and maybe delete that video from your iPhone. Liberated Jupiter could spur a sexual revolution over the coming year and activism may take an even sharper focus on protecting reproductive rights. When it comes to love, look for freedom within a commitment. Jupiter may be independent, but in Scorpio, he plays for keeps!

Give peace — and romance — a chance this weekend. Harmonious Venus has a homecoming party as she returns to her native sign of Libra from Saturday until November 7. This annual cycle can bring a bonus case of the butterflies, kind of like an autumn Valentine's Day, if you will. A greater desire for harmony will blanket the world. Could we find win-wins among the divisions? Here's hoping!

September 23 to October 22

Have one last swing from that chandelier, Libra. This week brings bittersweet cosmic news, because on Tuesday, wild and whimsical Jupiter will exit your sign after a 13-month tour. You’ve hosted the red-spotted planet since September 9, 2016, and it’s been a wild year of independent growth and expansion. In some ways, you might even feel a bit unsettled from all that change happening so fast. But there's cause to celebrate nonetheless. You wandered outside your comfort zone and took risks — and, starting Tuesday, you can cash in on the rewards points you earned along the way. As you bid Jupiter goodnight for another 12.5 years, it flows on to Scorpio and your financially savvy second house. Before November 8, 2018, you could score a thrilling job opportunity or a supersized promotion. If you’ve dreamed of striking out as an independent contractor, Jupiter in Scorpio can help you attract well-paying clients — even ones who are located abroad. (Perfect excuse to keep this travel momentum going, right?) Jupiter is the planet that governs higher education, so some Libras may head back to school for a specialized degree or training that helps you command more cash. Keep on expanding while keeping your feet on solid ground — you'll still make progress, even if you're flowing at a far-less-manic pace.

But don't worry, you'll still retain some of that Zodiac It Girl status. On Saturday, your ruling planet, radiant and romantic Venus, sashays into Libra until November 7. Your glow gets even brighter, highlighter not required. You could knock 'em dead just stepping out in your #iwokeuplikethis perfection, but with the celestial stylista in your sign, you'll have fun playing with your look and even trying something new for fall like red eye shadow or "curtain fringed" hair. A swarm of admirers will buzz near your hive, but as queen bee, you might prefer to keep those drones at a distance while you take your time to choose.

October 23 to November 21

Chill that Armand de Bragnac, Scorpio. It's about the only thing you'll put on ice this week as Jupiter, the galactic gambler, blasts into your sign for the first time in over a decade, making "more" your favorite word. You've been ordering a la carte for the last year, but suddenly, life's sampler platter is looking like the best thing ever. The planet of good fortune only visits your sign every 12.5 years, so yes, this is a very big deal. (The last round was from October 2005 to November 2006, for the record.) For the past year, you’ve probably drifted a bit, keeping it low key and learning how to master the back end of things. Truthfully, you needed a sabbatical — and this slower phase helped you sort through what was truly meaningful in your life. Maybe you even walked away from a relationship or career that was past its expiration date. But with Jupiter rolling back through Scorpio until November 8, 2018, your downright witchy manifestation powers are back in rare form. Epic changes are ahead, ones that kick your true calling into gear. You may return to school, start (or expand) a business, embark on a new career path, or even relocate to a different city. Or, maybe it's just your attitude that will go through this seismic shift. Whatever the case, let the reinvention tour begin!

Romantically, you may spend the next few weeks in a transitional phase as Venus drifts into your 12th house of healing and completions. If you've swept issues under the rug with bae, bring them out into the open before resentment overtakes you. Venus helps you deal diplomatically. Ready to move on from an expired affair? Make a gracious exit (and have your ugly cries) so you can start fresh when the planet of amour flows into Scorpio on November 7. Some Scorpios could be legit swept off your platform boots. But you may be rocking the rose-colored glasses (rare for you, we know) so take your time and let people prove themselves worthy.

November 22 to December 21

Ready, set…relax. It’s time for a celestial sabbatical, Sagittarius — and frankly, you could use it! This Tuesday, your ruling planet, free-spirited Jupiter, decamps to Scorpio and your flowy, transitional 12th house. It's not that your vivacious sign would ever disappear from the public eye. But after a year of scattering your energy in so many directions, you'd rather focus it like a laser beam and only on things that are truly meaningful. You might develop a business plan behind the scenes, take a gap year to teach ESL abroad, or help a family member in need. But no matter where you land (or stay), turn your space into a sacred oasis. A Konmari'd home is the perfect base for your creative pursuits and a soulful practice like meditation, yoga, or giving people tarot card readings as your side hustle. With the muse as your constant companion, this could be the year you get the book deal or gallery show — or create all the works for a debut when Jupiter lands in Sagittarius for a year on November 8, 2018! If you have any mourning or emotional healing to do, dive in. While this process might not be easy work, you’ll emerge like a champion. Heads up: You may need to make a sacrifice for someone you love in the year ahead. Find the balance between caring and codependent, or your "helpful" ways could lead to burnout. Rule of thumb: Taking care of others starts by taking care of yourself first.

Thankfully, there will be strength in numbers and plenty of support available for the coming three weeks, while you make this Jupiter transition. On Saturday, charming Venus sets up camp in Libra and your 11th house of teamwork until November 7. People will be happy to be part of your soul squad, Sagittarius. All you have to do is remember to invite them in. You could also find your fall group for parties and weekend trips. Bring together friends who have never met before. For the next few weeks, you're the glue for your crew. Romantically, this tech-savvy Venus cycle could deliver love from the dating apps or the IRL introduction of a mutual friend. Coupled Archers should get out together more often and even think about hosting a dinner — or a Halloween party — together.

December 22 to January 19

Start casting for the Capricorn soul squad. This Tuesday, worldly, enterprising Jupiter sails into Scorpio and your collaborative 11th house until November 8, 2018. Teaming up with the hive mind will not only make your ideas richer but you could all celebrate a huge and profitable victory over the coming year-plus. With this worldly planet at the helm you may have to travel to find your team or host your global conference calls on Google Hangout. This Jupiter phase could also make you an Internet (or Instagram) sensation. Got ideas for a webinar, blog, mobile app, or e-commerce site? Venturesome Jupiter could lure you down the path of those Silicon Valley superstars. If you don’t have the capital to get it off the ground, try a crowdfunding campaign. Since the red-spotted planet rules education, consider developing your own online course for some extra bank. Or, learn a new digital skill that keeps you ahead of the times. Socially, your circle of influence will swell. Plan tons of group travel and visit the friends you've made in all those ports.

Feel like mixing business with pleasure? That's kind of like dirty talk for a Capricorn. Well, lucky you. On Saturday, vixen Venus cruses into Libra and your 10th house of ambition until November 7. Power couple fantasies could become your reality, so save your final rose for someone who you'd be proud to bring as a plus-one to a future awards ceremony. Coupled Caps could team up on a business venture or at least test the waters with a project or side hustle. (You never know). A coworker crush could also blaze up, but don't leave anything vague if you're going to blur those lines. Sometimes, it's best to just keep it in the flirty zone, so you have a secret reason to look forward to going to work.

January 20 to February 18

Have you gone a little overboard with the crocheted table runners and macramé planters, Aquarius? With expansive Jupiter lounging in Libra and your boho-chic ninth house for the past year-plus, we wouldn't be surprised. Or maybe you took the "more is more" thing to an unparalleled extreme. Either way, your tastes are about to get a lot more discerning starting Tuesday, when Jupiter sails on to Scorpio and your polished, profesh 10th house until November 8, 2018. Swap the fringed moto jacket for a crisp blazer! Your career could take off like a guided missile, whether you’re headed for the executive suite of an existing company or flexing your muscles as the CEO of Aquarius, Inc. And with Jupiter’s global influence, you could travel frequently for work or create a job that allows you to interface with folks all over the world. Grab your hammer and smash that stupid glass ceiling. Working with the guys doesn't mean playing by archaic rules or putting up with mansplaining, obvi! But you might want to adopt some of their techniques for getting ahead all the same.

Romantically, you're ready to expand your horizons and even give a new type a whirl. Love planet Venus sets sail Libra and your worldly, adventurous ninth house from Saturday until November 7. A cross-cultural connection could give you major butterflies and you might even consider a long-distance arrangement. But this Venus cycle might also make it hard for you to settle down. If you're single, embrace it and let the good times roll. Traveling will be especially good for your sex drive, whether you're hooking up with a local hottie or heading off for a sexy baecation.

February 19 to March 20

Sick of sweating the small stuff, Pisces? With magnifier Jupiter lounging in Scorpio and your intense eighth house for the past year, you were all about the details. But this Tuesday, Jupiter sails on to Scorpio and your broad-minded ninth house, where it will turn your attention back to the big picture. Between now and November 8, 2018, your passport could get an epic workout as Jupiter sends waves of wanderlust washing over you. So…what were you all stressed out about last week? Who was getting under your skin? Just ghost them, Pisces. Revenge is a dish that's best not served at all. With buoyant Jupiter expanding your worldview, there are far too many bright opportunities to focus on. If you’re not traveling, you’ll stretch in other ways like enrolling in school, writing a book or starting your entrepreneurial venture. Long-distance and multicultural relationships percolate with promise so keep an open mind in every way.

This weekend brings an erotic awakening as sultry Venus shimmies into Libra and your seductive, intimate eighth house until November 7. You're vivacious and magnetic now, Pisces, but also pickier. Save your final rose for someone who thrills you mind, body, and soul. Keep a firm privacy policy in place. The magic happens behind closed doors and you won't feel like reliving the early aughts by reporting all the details to friends over a Sex and the City style brunch. Do your part to get the magic going. A little sexting goes a long way.

March 21 to April 19

Get ready to make things official, Ram — or maybe find someone who understands the concept of an independent relationship (no, it's not an oxymoron). On Tuesday, expansive Jupiter dips into Scorpio and your eighth house of sex, shared resources, and rock-solid bonds until November 8, 2018. In the coming year, you could put a ring on it, put some ink on it, or otherwise make a pairing more permanent. This erotic awakening is sure to spice up your bedroom life, especially with experimental, adventurous Jupiter in the mix. This cosmic cycle could put some serious cash in your pocket, but not necessarily from a 9-5. You could create a product (or work of art) that earns you royalties, work as an independent contractor, or even make a mint from commission or real estate. Let your entrepreneurial spirit be your guide!

Another nudge from Cupid comes on Saturday as romantic Venus sails into Libra and your partnership zone until November 7. That casual fall fling might look a lot more like the real thing in the next few weeks. But you'll never know unless you get off the fence and dive in all the way. Creative partnerships will blossom, too, but don't go looking for a clone. Opposites attract.

April 20 to May 20

You've never denied the fact that you're a hopeless romantic, Taurus. But finding a qualified candidate for the role of your other half can be a...journey. Embrace that! This Tuesday, intrepid Jupiter wanders into Scorpio — your opposite sign and the ruler of your seventh house of relationships — until November 8, 2018. This once-per-decade cycle will expand your romantic horizons. You could swoon for someone unlike anyone you've ever fallen for in the past or, since Jupiter rules travel, try a long-distance relationship. Cross-cultural connections will crackle with an extra spark. Allow yourself to slowly savor Cupid's sampler platter. Jupiter's indie-spirited vibes can make being single fun, at least for a while. But with this auspicious cosmic energy at your back, you might not be sleeping alone for too long. Already attached? Liberated Jupiter inspires you to write your own rules — and they don't have to involve a white picket fence. Coupled Taureans could take a big, Instagram-worthy leap together over the coming year. Work the tag teams in your professional life, too. This Jupiter cycle could bring a profitable collaboration. Lawyer up, though! Despite Jupiter's optimistic vibes, a handshake deal is hardly sufficient to CYA.

In between Tinder swipes and power lunches, make sure you leave room in your calendar for some ClassPass adventures. On Saturday, your ruler, radiant Venus, grooves into Libra and your wellness zone until November 7. This annual reboot inspires you to take better care of your body in every way, from finding great fitspo (and following it) to updating your beauty routine. Think: all natural.

May 21 to June 20

Kick off the platform heels and lace up the running shoes. After an indulgent (even hedonistic) 13 months, you're ready to embrace a more active lifestyle again. On Tuesday, sporty Jupiter zips into Scorpio and your wellness corner until November 8, 2018. Your body is your soul’s address here on Earth, Gemini — which is good reason to treat it like a temple. Healthy eating and cooking could become your fall obsessions, whether you're going full-on vegan or just adding more greens along with your pizza and wine. With outdoorsy Jupiter charging you up, you might become a camping person (or at least a glamper), join a hiking group, or learn to grow your own food. Embrace the haute hippie vibes! Career-wise, Jupiter may liberate you from the 9-5 grind and help you create more independent position, whether you're working remotely for a company or going full-on freelance. Or, you could take on a bigger role. One thing's for sure: You'll be busy, Gemini, which is all the more reason to make those stress-busting workouts a must.

Pleasure and playtime won't totally fall off the calendar though! On Saturday, enchanting Venus sweeps into Libra and your frisky, flamboyant fifth house until November 7. This Venus cycle is one of the best for falling in love or stoking the embers with bae. Don't sit around waiting for your phone to ding though. You may need to take more initiative in affairs of the heart, whether you're pursuing or dropping a very obvious hint. Your creative talents could catch some buzz, so don't be shy with your strategic self-promotion!

June 21 to July 22

It's been cozy in that crab shell of yours for the past year, Cancer, but it's time to emerge and enjoy some long-overdue attention. This Tuesday, magnifier Jupiter blasts into Scorpio and your fifth house of fame until November 8, 2018. You — or your work or both — could catch some serious buzz in the year ahead. Book those gigs and gallery shows or start the style blog with all those amazing photos that are just sitting on your phone. This Jupiter cycle is a legit creative renaissance — and a romantic one, too! Jupiter the galactic gambler will raise the stakes in love. Single? Dive back into the dating game and watch your dance card fill at warp speed. Since Jupiter is the cosmic jetsetter, your amour could be from a different culture, or even live in a different city. Coupled? This would be the time to take that cross-country road trip or — if you’re ready — the walk down the aisle. Adventure is an aphrodisiac! If you've been off the market for a good, long while, traveling (with bae and independently) can be a great reboot for romance.

And, no, you don't have to abandon your nesting instincts altogether. On Saturday, enchanting Venus grooves into Libra and your domestic zone until November 7. While you might not hunker down into hibernation mode, this is a fabulous time for entertaining out-of-town guests or hosting a dinner party. And if you get lost in a Pinterest wormhole, we wouldn't blame you. Add some beautiful accents to Maison du Crab, like a chandelier, fabric headboard, or an accent wall with peel and stick wallpaper.

July 23 to August 22

Every Leo needs her royal den — and starting Tuesday, home is where your heart shall be, no question about it. But what remains uncertain is: Where will you hang your bejeweled crown each night? The location could change dramatically in the days ahead and worldly, adventurous Jupiter embarks on a 13-month tour through Scorpio and your home and family zone. If you've been living with the parents, this liberated planet could spring you free to find your own little studio — or, you could start paying a little rent each month in exchange for greater emotional freedom. Should moving be your choice, get ready: Your new address could be in a totally different zip code...or country code! Staying put? Add more flair to your lair, because Chateau Leo could become a lively hub of action. A home-based business could become a smashing success, too. Maybe it’s time to give the sub-letter a 30-day notice and turn the extra bedroom into an office or recording studio. Women will be your lucky stars with Jupiter in your feminine fourth house until November 8, 2018. Sister acts FTW!

But nightlife won't suffer due to hibernation — not for the next few weeks, at least. On Saturday, party-girl Venus swings into your ultra-social third house until November 7, boosting your popularity to new heights. You'll have the gift of gab, making it easy to sell people on your big dreams and genuinely amazing ideas. You'll also be wildly flirtatious, but be careful not to blur the wrong lines. It's all fun and games until someone gets jealous!

August 23 to September 22

Warm up those social butterfly wings and start RSVP-ing "yes" instead of "maybe." This Tuesday, expansive, adventurous Jupiter floats into Scorpio and your outgoing third house until November 8, 2018. You'll soon regain status as the life of the party, Virgo — and you won't have to travel far to find a decent venue. The local scene is where the action's at and over the next year, you could be a central part of creating it. Not loving where you live? Worldly Jupiter buoys your courage to relocate to a more fitting zip code. Even if you have to make a few temporary sacrifices, like splitting rent with an extra roommate or skipping brunches, you'll find that you start to attract more abundance when you're happy with your day-to-day life. Making new friends will be a snap over the coming days — and kindred spirits could step forward as future BFFs, party plus-ones, even business partners. Working the buddy system will bring you the best shot at success during this cooperative Jupiter cycle. Are you a writer, teacher, or mediamaker? Get to work on your essay collection or short film and you could see your work published soon. Teacher training may also call your name — a great way to pad your entertainment budget during this super-social year-plus cycle.

Put on your big girl pumps this weekend and practice pounding the pavement (without destroying your heels). Decadent Venus swings into Libra and your second house of money and work until November 7. Your appetite for luxury always increases when Venus makes this annual visit, but going into debt for shoes and other non-necessities? Not a good look, Virgo. But with the enchanting planet here, you could charm your way into a money-making opportunity, be it a new job, promotion, or a profitable side hustle. Socialize strategically. Buttering up the boss by buying her lunch might be the best move you make this fall.
