Horoscope for Oct. 22-28, 2008



Scorpio The Phoenix: (Oct. 23-Nov. 20)

The sun returns "home" to your sign this week. You will find it to be energizing. Now is the time to focus on new plans for this next year of your life. Take a fresh look at where you want to direct your energy. Give special attention to the lead paragraph and find something productive to do with old anger.

For All Signs: Old issues of resentment and anger may resurface for a cleansing. This is individual as well as global. For individuals, a helpful ritual in these times is to clean out closets, eliminate useless items, and organize clutter. There is something about these activities that helps us to clear our thoughts. If you are troubled by an old angry demon, be aware that it is looking for a fresh perspective. Work it out with a heavy project, or write it out in a journal and consider how time has altered your attitude.

Aries: Give attention to the lead paragraph this week. Old issues related to money, time, or other resources that you share with others may be front and center. Decide what you can realistically do in order to prevent these troubles in the future. Resentment does you no good. Look for a way to let it go.

Taurus: Venus, your ruling planet, enters the 8th sector and will remain there until Nov. 12. This suggests favorable influences and opportunities concerning gifts or other financial resources that come through other people. It includes investments, debts owed to you, and insurance payoffs.

Gemini: Activities involving travel, education, the law, Internet, or persons from a distance are favored this week. Relationships with lovers, children, or other family members are positive. You may be surprised by the need to pay off on a promise made a few weeks ago.

Cancer: Old issues of resentment or anger over shared resources may surface once again among family members, especially your children. You may need to call upon someone with expertise in the matter in order to resolve the dilemma. You want everyone to be happy, but this seems to be a conundrum.

Leo: Your attention shifts toward home, property and family as it often does at this time of year. Issues of debt versus investment are in the back of your mind. It is important to reduce debt as much as possible during these times.

Virgo: You are having positive encounters all week with those in your daily life. Romance is favored and so are activities involving children and play. Your creative mind is loaded with good ideas.

Libra: Your ruling planet is Venus, goddess of love and the arts. "She" has moved into a new sector now through Nov. 12. Your attention will be drawn to parties in neighboring areas and with those of your usual environment. Your attitude is cheerful.

Sagittarius: Venus entered your sign on the 18th and will be traveling "with you" through Nov. 12. Her presence gives you an air of poise and beauty, and people will simply like how you look. She brings good fortune in small matters and sometimes she bears gifts of love.

Capricorn: You are feeling generally better overall and ready to enjoy friends and loved ones. A contract may be brought to fruition at this time. The big things are still concerning you, but the day to day life is pleasant now.

Aquarius: Activities related to travel, the Internet, the church, education and the law are favored. People from a distance are helpful. Do not seek to embellish your ego during this period or someone will be handy to shoot you down. Remain in the background for best results.

Pisces: You may have a conflict between economy or efficiency and your social life. Someone may ask to borrow money or other resources from you. Don't give it unless you are prepared to let go.
