Mercury joins Venus in Scorpio. Mars is still in Aquarius and the sun is still in Libra.
Aries (March 21 - April 19): Fall is a season for change. People may leave and be replaced by new faces. Maybe the rules seem like they’re not quite what you thought they were, and UConn is changing all of their signage to be ugly, small and gray instead of large, blue and legible. Think of these changes not as the end of something, but as the start of something new (quote “High School Musical”).
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): This week may feel like moving backwards. No matter what you try or how hard you work, things just won’t work out the way you want them to. Just remember, it’s not your fault. Be patient and ride it out.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): This week, as your ruling planet enters Scorpio, you may find your mind wandering to darker and deeper places, confronting mysteries and questions you haven’t thought of in a while. Unlike Libra, another air sign like yourself, Scorpio isn’t so big on communication. You may feel like you have to keep these strange ponderings to yourself, but following that urge may not help you in the long run.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Have some soup, drink lots of water, get as much sleep as you possibly can, even if it means skimming the reading, exercising, eating citrus and washing your hands. Sickness is all around us, so be vigilant. If it seems like you might be giving in to it, at the very least stock up on tissues and hand sanitizer.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22): It’s fall! That means pumpkin spice, apple picking, dorm decorations, Halloween costumes and New England foliage. It’s time for Bean boots and sweaters and flannels and scarves. Whatever negativity you have in your life right now, forget about it. If you’re not feeling the fall, find yourself an apple cider doughnut, because embracing the season will re-energize you this week.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Keep in mind you may be a private person, but not everybody else is. It may be difficult for everyone to understand why you need to categorize your life. Be patient.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): You might end up breaking stuff this week. Plates. Lamps. The zipper on your backpack. Your shoes. Keep duct tape on hand.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): It may seem like you’re being pulled in all different directions this week. You feel like you need to hang out with other people, but you also just want to be alone. You feel like you need to be communicating better, but you have nothing to say. Try to do what feels natural and don’t overthink it.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): This is going to be a lucky week for you. Tuesday is going to be lucky, and Friday is going to be super lucky. Maybe you’ll guess all the right answers on your multiple choice tests or the bus will always arrive right when you get to the stop or maybe your professor will get sick and class will be canceled. It’s a good week.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): You can’t control everything all the time. This week it may feel like you’re losing your grip on your assignments, your sleep schedule, your free time, everything. Don’t stop showing up to class or showering or anything, but sometimes giving in to the unexpected can bring you to some interesting places.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): There are so many causes to fight for that sometimes it’s totally overwhelming. How are you supposed to eat environmentally consciously and pay attention to where clothes are manufactured and who we elect into office and what chemicals are in your water bottle and on and on. You don’t have to be perfect. You just have to try.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20): Watch a Halloween movie this week. Watch a fun movie like “The Nightmare Before Christmas” or a scary movie like “Scream” or a movie that sort of walks the line like “Get Out.” Buy into the season. It’ll make the dreary days and omnipresent puddles less annoying.
