Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
Your powers of persuasion are off the charts, thanks to the annual coalition of messenger Mercury and enchanting Venus in Scorpio. With these planets mingling on your turf, you're in a prime position to ask for what you desire—and get a yes! But you don't have to go for the direct hit, especially since Venus is retrograde. A little cheekiness and charm will just make your offer more enticing. If you're in need of a "branding" update, your aesthetic compass could lead you to an amazing salon or a boutique that looks like it should be your closet. Hold off on any major updates, however, until Venus turns direct on November 16.
You may still be processing a big "aha" moment that flashed through your brain when the Sun beamed into your twelfth house of closure a few weeks ago. This isn't something you want to rush, Scorpio—nor can you—but you should see light at the end of tunnel starting today. A balancing quarter moon in Capricorn illuminates your cerebral third house and helps you make sense of what you've been experiencing. Turn to a wise friend if you need support or guidance, but make sure they've actually been through a similar experience (and ideally triumphed over it). Right now you need solid advice, not speculation.
Cat got your tongue, Scorpio? More likely it’s a case of your head and your heart being at loggerheads today. A confusing commotion between the sensitive moon in your privacy zone and outgoing Venus in your sign pulls you in opposing directions. Part of you would love a huge platform to promote your latest project, but another side is happy to squirrel yourself away and not bother. Well, like it or not, all eyes are on you. When you really start to squirm, remind yourself of the greater good this can accomplish.
A motivational mashup between the moon and your co-ruler, impassioned Mars, in your domestic fourth house may inspire you to spend the lion’s share of the day lounging in your lair. If possible, work from home or clock out early. Without constant interruptions, you’ll be more productive, giving you needed time to catch up on personal projects you never can find time to finish. Tackle one small area first to build momentum. Tonight, whip up a home-cooked feast with your roomie or romantic interest.
You may be driven to distraction today as quicksilver Mercury in Scorpio sings a dreamy duet with hedonistic Neptune in your sensual fifth house. Don’t even bother trying to pull your head out of the clouds. Instead, get busy adding magic and romance to your weekend plans. Under this charmed alignment, you could talk your way onto a VIP guest list or ferret out an amazing (and currently underground) arts scene. Whether you’re single or coupled, you are luminous under today’s stars. Take a little extra time to curate a look that makes you feel confident—and make sure it's almost as easy to take off as it is to put on. Meow!
With the Pisces moon in your dynamic and expressive fifth house all weekend, you'll have no shortage of amazing ideas bubbling. Reclaim creative control! On Saturday, when Venus (retrograde) in Scorpio trines la luna, you'll be in no mood to compromise your vision just to be a good sport. First you have to see YOUR plan actualized, which might mean pulling out of a group project and exploring the solo route. But don't be too quick to break away. Maybe you could rally the squad to get behind your idea. With candid Jupiter in Scorpio blessing the moon on Sunday, getting them on-board may be as easy as speaking from the heart. Your wonder and enthusiasm will be infectious! If you're going out this weekend, take a few extra minutes to primp and get yourself "camera-ready." You'll naturally attract admirers and might even find yourself in a style blogger's Instagram feed—or a sexy someone's arms.
