This is a great time for you to focus on home and family, Aries. Compromise is highlighted, and you may find new friendships coming your way. Romance won′t be dramatic, but it will be steady—and that applies whether you′re looking for love or in a committed relationship already. There could be some bumps, sure, but that′s just life. You′ll be able to weather them easily if you don′t overreact to them. Jupiter is throwing good energy across the zodiac into your sign; all the same, try not to draw unnecessary attention your way. People like you for who you are, so let that be enough.


Things have been going your way for awhile now, and you′ll need to take care that you′re not overwhelmed by all the opportunities around you. Teamwork is the key, and your social life looks to be on the upswing over Halloween. You′re in a pretty good position, but watch that you don′t get too stubborn, as Taureans are known to do. Digging in your heels and wanting your own way—even if it is a good way—will not win you any favors. Don′t lose your momentum, but do learn a bit of give and take. Delays jeopardize you reaching your goals, so cultivate patience but keep moving!


The Mercury retrograde bouncing around with the eclipses has not been particularly kind to you, dear Gemini, and you′re going to have to mind your manners if you want to turn things around over Halloween. You′re going to be tempted to dwell on the past: don′t. You might feel alone and vulnerable, but you aren′t. You′re just licking your wounds and nursing your hurt. Hard truths have been exposed, and it′s going to take a while to get through this bumpy period. Solitude is the clue to healing—even if you′re currently in a partnership.


Things bode well for you as far as romance is concerned, but don′t let yourself get too distracted. Leave what′s no longer working, for it will make room for more appropriate people and situations to come into your life. Don′t get drawn into gossip or hearsay or someone else′s drama—and it will be easy for them to manipulate you into doing so if you let down your guard. You can be incredibly productive, and that applies to your relationships too. Take things steady and calm and watch for those who are envious or jealous. It′s okay to cut what′s not working from your life—in fact, this is a great month to do it.


Romance isn′t as important for Leos this season as finances are. Do not rush into any contracts, no matter how good they initially sound. It′s time for you to get second opinions. Things are set to get very confusing very fast. However, where love is concerned, they seem to just kind of plod along. Make sure that you′re not too aloof, or not too needy for attention. If you′re single, you may well meet someone who feels like it was just destined to be. The stars are aligned for ‘soul mate′ type of encounters—but remember that soul mates don′t always stack up to be life mates. Even if you′re happily committed, someone unique could bring something bewitching into your life.


This is a pretty calm and quiet time for you, and you′ll be able to reflect on the turmoil of the previous month and decide where you want to go next. There′s not a lot of difficulty in the skies for you, but don′t go looking for trouble or you′ll be sure to find it! When it comes to Virgos and romance, there will be some gentle nudges—whether you′re single or taken. If you′re looking for love, you′ll see some synchronicity that will lead you into the right arena to find it. If you′re with someone, your relationship can deepen. Just pay attention to the way that people treat you—actions always speak louder than words.


Minor disappointments and disruptions could bring you more tricks than treats over Halloween, but the thing to keep in mind is that they′re minor. They don′t need to be huge dramas unless you lose your cool and allow them to get the better of you. A Libra’s social life is particularly full during the spooky season, but that also means that there are more opportunities for booboos, too. Don′t expect too much of others; they′re always going to have the potential to let you down. This is a time when you need to treat yourself to your own sweets, and not be a people-pleaser to others.


It′s your time to shine. Scorpio! After the challenges you experienced earlier this autumn, you′ll be ready for smoother sailing, and this is just what Halloween looks to bring you. You′ll have opportunities to get closer to your goals, but don′t work too hard, or you′ll find yourself getting disillusioned again. Yes, there′s a long way to go, but look how far you′ve come! This energy favors those who are already attached more than it does single Scorpios, however, even those of you looking for love have a chance to find it. Look for an intellectual connection, and let the feeling factor follow.


This is a season where relationships are highlighted for you, and dropping the folks who no longer serve a purpose in your life isn′t a bad idea at all. You have to look at quality, not quantity. Stay focused on your long-term goals and don′t get distracted by smooth talk and empty promises. There has to be equal give and take, and if people are taking to much, then they need to be history. Be impulsive, be fun, be a bit daring. Existing relationships will be put to the test. Choose your battles wisely, and make sure that you only keep the people in your life who pass the test.


You′re in for a treat over Halloween, for the spirits see set to send some fun and frivolity into your usually reserved ways. The stars are aligned to bring you some treats and good fortune, and you′ll have a clear head with which to consider how you wish to proceed. Your love life also looks set to evolve; once again, if you′re with someone then expect things to deepen, and if you′re single, expect to meet interesting people. Of course, to meet folks you have to socialize; fortunately, the planets are positive when it comes to participating in pleasant activities.


Jupiter is throwing positive energy into your sign for the next year. If you get a chance to attend a Halloween event, do so! Networking and socializing are highlighted, and there′s a good vibe here for both love and luck. You may meet someone who can help your career, your personal life, or even a potential romantic partner. Folks gravitate to you and tend to agree with you now, but don′t get too confident because of this—no one likes a showoff!


Dear, dreamy Pisces, it′s going to be so easy for you to miss opportunities during the spooky season, because you get too distracted too quickly! Positive energy abounds and flows your way, but you′ll miss it if you′re head is stuck in the clouds or your heart is stuck in the past. Whether you′re single or taken, love is definitely in the air—but you mustn′t be lazy! You′re going to have to put some effort into pursuing what (and who) you want. Keep work separate, avoid office romances, and stay true to your heart′s desires. You′ll be glad you did by the time Thanksgiving rolls around!

So, how full is your candy dish going to be this year? You might feel alone, and not up to partying, but that may well be the difference between staying single or meeting your match.

Before you rush out in the quickest disguise you can create, though, remember that first impressions count. If you′re already with someone, then a well-considered couples costume could bring you closer together. If you′re single and looking, then you want to make an impact. Let your costume be an extension of who you are, and where your passion lies. Let it make a bold statement to others, and take you a little bit outside your comfort zone. With Jupiter transiting the harmonious sign of Libra, and the Sun entering into passionate Scorpio, there′s every opportunity to fill your Halloween goody bag with lots of romantic treats.
