Virgo Weekly Horoscope

10-24-2016 to 10-30-2016
Resist the temptation to crawl into your cocoon, Virgo! Instead, spread your social butterfly wings. On Monday, October 24 your ruling planet Mercury joins the Sun in Scorpio and your outgoing third house until November 12. Halloween festivities provide the perfect excuse to organize gatherings. Start with a couple of craft nights and flex your own DIY muscles. With Mercury in this position, you might make miracles happen with your very own glue gun, makeup kit and Bedazzler. And this could even turn into a group themed getup if you tantalize your friends with your brilliant schemes. Beyond the haunted holiday, you'll see a general uptick in your popularity. While you'd never ditch your true-blue crew, someone with BFF potential may emerge over the coming few weeks; or you could finally break the ice with a colleague you've wanted to get to know better. Talk to strangers, Virgo!

How strong of a first impression do you make on people? On Friday and Saturday, fiery Mars in your glamour zone hooks up with change-maker Uranus. You could embark on a personal makeover (or makeunder) that reflects Virgo October 2016—or maybe January 2017. While you're quite particular about curating your own look, it might be an interesting exercise to ask stylish friends for a little input. While you need to be comfortable with the suggestions, keep an open mind about their ideas. We tend to see ourselves differently than others do—and sometimes that view holds us back in subtle ways. So maybe don't go for the purple ombre, but then again... If you're happy with your current sartorial splendor, offer to take a style-challenged friend, relative or coworker on a shopping mission. Don't present it like they need help (cough)—just invite them along for a bonding experience, then strategically pull a few numbers for them to try on. They may grumble at first before thanking you for eternity.

While you're beautifying your life, give a little love to your living quarters, Virgo. A tidy and well-appointed space makes you happy, but it's not just the perfect lines of the Mid-Century furniture that ticks your boxes. On Saturday, aesthetic Venus and structured Saturn merge in your domestic zone. As you look around Chateau Virgo, do you like what you see? Is it all in harmony and do you feel a deep sense of calm in (what should be) your sanctuary? For your orderly sign, form follows function—a principle conceptualized by modernist Virgo architect Louis Sullivan. If your place could use a little zhushing, come up with a plan. Don't attempt a total redo all at once. Saturn gives you long-range vision, and Venus will make sure everything is pleasing to the eye.
Variety will become the staple spice of your life this Sunday, as the year's only new moon in Scorpio energizes your experimental third house. These moonbeams will activate your social nature even further. But dabble, explore and definitely "try before you buy." Your mutable sign will be grateful that there's no need to commit to anything for the long haul or become a lifelong, or even yearlong, member until you feel sure. This new moon showcases hometown happenings, and the local scene could deliver some entertaining surprises. Get involved in a community movement that supports a cause you care about, like a no-kill animal shelter or a winter-coat drive. Or create your own event by teaming up with a neighborhood business. This week—and over the next six months—support will be plentiful. With your organizing skills and their connections, you might host an epic affair! Call in kindred spirits, too. Between now and the corresponding Scorpio full moon on May 10, 2017, you could join forces with someone who shares your values AND your outlook on life. Single Virgos will be in fine flirting form and may draw the attraction of someone who's been languishing in the friend zone. Who knows? Your weekend Halloween celebrations might be the perfect time to "drop the mask" and cop to a crush.
