Aries: Show your softer side.
Assertive Aries tend to go bold, often fearlessly road-testing the newest trends. Like your signmates Lady Gaga or Sarah Jessica Parker, you’re not one to fade into the background. But with Venus and Jupiter in your balanced seventh house, you’ll turn heads with a polished, “less is more” aesthetic. Surprise your fan base by pairing fall’s trend of soft peach eyes with satiny lips in the same hue.
Taurus: Go natural and cruelty-free.
So fresh and so clean! With Venus and Jupiter in your natural, wellness-inspired sixth house, your fall lineup could include an eco-friendly or cruelty-free product line. It’s also the perfect time to play with the natural brow trend, road-testing one of the season’s new clear brow gels or letting yours go free-range.
Gemini: Go bold!
Attention courts you whether you like it or not, so play to the crowd. With Venus and Jupiter in your bold and expressive fifth house, dial up the drama to a maximum setting. Skip the subtlety and dabble with dark blackberry lip stain or try the “goth lip” trend.
Cancer: Revive the romance.

Leo: Brighten up.
Eclectic and electric: That’s your fall prescription with Venus and Jupiter in your experimental and bubbly third house. Go bright, playful and eye-popping, trying out blue eyeshadow or vibrant pink or purple lips. Two-tone looks or unusual contrasts can create a fascinating fusion.
Virgo: Stick with the classics.
Sweet sophistication! With Venus and Jupiter in your traditional second house, reach for classic styles that add timeless polish. Try a matte red lip—a look that many Virgos already love!
Libra: Try a daring trend.
Refined Libras don’t get ruffled by trends—you stick with what looks good and following your own discerning tastes. But with Venus and Jupiter in your sign, you might rethink that policy.

Scorpio: Lights, camera, glamour.
We can see your halo! Venus and Jupiter in your enchanting twelfth house cast a soft glow on you. Play up the mermaid-inspired shimmer of this cosmic cycle by strategically reflecting light.

Sagittarius: Add a futuristic twist.
Metallic mania! With Venus and Jupiter in your futuristic eleventh house, take a page straight from the sci-fi playbook. Channel this year’s Met Gala or Emma Robert’s summer thriller Nerve, trying out this technological transit with fall’s copper eyeshadow and lips.
Capricorn: Polish up your act.
Less is more! Venus and Jupiter are in your minimalist and masculine tenth house—right at home, since Capricorn is the natural ruler of this zodiac sector. Your look could convey structure and power: a strong and full brow, for example. Or, you could try fall’s trend of nude lips and eyes.
Aquarius: Go global and glittery.
Summer festival season may be over, but the spirit lives on through you, Aquarius. With Venus and Jupiter in your boho-chic, maximalist ninth house. all the glitters is gold to you…especially when it comes in the form of your favorite new fall eyeshadow.
Pisces: Summon the seductress within.
Your sign isn’t known for being heavy-handed with the makeup brush, but with Venus plunging into your mysterious and seductive eighth house, you might just go there! Practice your smoky eye makeup, trying your hand at this season’s charcoal eye trend.
