What’s in the stars for you this week? Let Tracy Allen point the way…
October 23–November 21
The sun in Scorpio is vibing with your ruling planet, Pluto, this week, lending added intensity and depth to your self-expression. You’re able to convey your individuality and your ideas with significant power, so shine your light and share what’s on your mind. With Mars descending to the bottom of your chart, you may start to get crabby and find yourself arguing without understanding your motives. Conflict with family and roommates is another possibility. Channel your energy into domestic activity — perhaps even tackling a home-improvement project. Venus’s segue into your cognition-communication-and-community zone coaxes you to think happy thoughts, socialize, put fondness into words and appreciate beauty in your everyday surroundings. And Mercury’s move into your worth house turns part of your attention to finances, possessions and values in the next few weeks.
November 22–December 21
With the sun in your solitude corner dovetailing with Pluto in your worth sector this week, you might feel like staying in by yourself at some point and clearing out clutter. Venus’s move into your worth sector can put you in the mood to shop or introduce a financial opportunity. Your desire to have what you feel you need increases, and your tastes could be more lavish. With Mars entering your thinking-and-talking house, your thoughts and speech are bound to pick up speed, and your daily life may get busier. Domestic travel is a distinct possibility in the next six weeks. Mercury’s arrival in Sagittarius also enlivens your brain and your self-expression; your ability to make yourself understood and to consider personal matters with useful objectivity will work in your favor.
December 22–January 19
Thanks to this week’s meeting between the sun in your network house and Pluto in Capricorn, you may have a chance to play an important role in a group. Friendships and other relationships with peers can be empowering now. You’re capable of finding a good balance between cooperation and personal control. After Venus moves into your sign, you’ll feel more social and amiable and can attract what — or whom — you desire with relative ease. You’ll feel more magnetic and attractive, inspiring you to get out and see people. Mars is entering your worth sector, increasing the odds of impulse spending and nudging you to deal with possessions and finances. With Mercury slipping into your spirit corner, your intuition and imagination are stimulated, but you may opt to do more observing than talking.
January 20–February 18
A confab between the sun in your ambition angle and Pluto in the last house of your chart this week encourages you to shine by doing something worthwhile behind the scenes. With Mars moving into your sign for the next six weeks, you’ll be motivated to pursue your own agenda and can work hard to further your interests. This is an excellent period for proving what you can do. Assertiveness will be a plus, but be careful not to dominate others. Operating solo may be the best strategy. Venus sneaks into your release corner, putting you in the mood for alone time, though this transit can also inspire you to take care of someone or make a selfless sacrifice. Mercury’s arrival in your network sector improves group communication and gets you thinking about new wishes.
February 19–March 20
A sun-Pluto meeting can prompt you to learn from others or travel with a group this week. Venus is entering your network house, causing you to feel more social and making group activities particularly enjoyable. You’ll derive pleasure from being around a lot of people and will have an easy time getting along with friends and peers. But with Mars going into hiding in the last house of your chart, you’d do well to work behind the scenes in the coming weeks and be content with receiving little credit or acclaim. Although you might feel frustrated and irritable, this is a useful period for confronting old anger and conquering self-defeating behavior. At the same time, Mercury climbs to the top of your chart, improving career planning and communication with higher-ups.

Meanwhile, Mercury’s arrival in your exploration zone encourages you to broaden your mind through education, travel and conversations with a variety of people.
April 20–May 20

An underlying pleasant mood and a craving for comfort can predispose you to self-indulgence. Mars shows up in your fulfillment zone, pushing you to spend the next six weeks going after your heart’s desire and making a point of enjoying life. Your competitive spirit is awakened, and you want what you want even if getting it requires a risk. Love and sex can blend naturally during this period.
