Libra/Libra Rising* (Sep 23-Oct 22): You have an untutored ability to build consensus. You don't simply see another's perspective; you can see all perspectives. Sure, it makes decision making more challenging. However, with Joyous Venus moving through your sign until October 8, your abilities have been enhanced. Do not think for a moment that just because some connections have fallen out of balance that all is lost. You've magnetized these situations, so you can correct them. It is sort of like having two people who do not get along unless you're in their company. You bring them together, but do not show up. Therefore, they are forced to grow up. Or leave the very public place you invited them. Does that sound manipulative? Well, you can be that way in direct proportion to how much your two friends have bent your ear over not getting along. In essence, please do not take for granted your mediating ways. Value how much your peacefulness aids all of your relationships.
Scorpio/Scorpio Rising* (Oct 23-Nov 21): My bad. Or should I say, "our bad"? Death with its scythe travels with us. Got another singer who's met the grim reaper. Vesta Williams. She used to be a backup singer for my favorite, Chaka Khan. Point? "Congratulations" was her biggest commercial hit in the 1980s. She sung (sang) a story about a woman who found out that her ex was getting married (she wasn't invited). The whole buffet of feelings, with which I'm sure you can totally identify. Vesta (the asteroid connected to the Roman vestal virgins), belted out a tune called "I Promise Love." Well, with Mars in Leo and your other slower (but, oh, so competent ruler) Pluto in Capricorn, your intelligence regarding what truly matters (hint: It is love) is being dramatically tested. In your quietly rebellious mind, you've got to adjust what you were taught to match what's happening now. It's time to accept that's love, at least for you. Lose control over whom you think you should desire. Geek with the big bank account? Out-of-town or newly divorced lover? Not here to judge, it is just how long do you want your nights to be? It's been said of your sign, you walk alone and naked through the world. It's not the living in your birthday suit that gets to you, after too time has passed.
Sagittarius/Sagittarius Rising* (Nov 22-Dec 19): I realize that now I have entirely more competition than I did 15 years ago. You have so many places to read your horoscope. Not interested in telling your future or fortune, I want to get you thinking. What does your free spirit want you to do today, at present? With the more than smattering of planets in Libra, your 11th house of free love, or what the SCOTUS held, "I know pornography when I see it," you've got a bright (and loving) future ahead of you. Intense passion must be cultivated, sometimes. You cannot always insist on turning long-standing acquaintances (or friends) into lovers, if only for one night. Just realize with glans and clitoris Mars in much, too much compatible Leo until mid-November, you cannot go all Cherelle/Robert Palmer (Rest. In. Peace.) "I Didn't Mean to Turn You On." Know that Leo is fixed (as in focused, obsesses, stalked) fire (even more so, when you-all don't accept how to get your groove on doesn't always mesh with your immediate society). You've got the best philosophical planetary alignments for one-night stands, old flames and turning strangers into long-term lovers. Damn. Can I be you for a while?
Capricorn/Capricorn Rising* (Dec 21-Jan 19): I admit, I can be hard on you (yes, I called both of your sex a variation of whore). Like Louis Gossett Jr. in An Officer and a Gentleman, you play the role of Richard Gere's drill sergeant. Out of all the 12 stories (excepting Pisces), yours is the most karmic. Karma, in a simple reduction, is intensity. Be intense or extreme about something or someone, you're in a karmic situation. Oh, it starts (karma, that is) at a 'reap what you sow,' but how do you know what you've sowed? Point? Being in a "karma" or a karmic relationship has much to do about a lot of things your ego would rather not discuss. Much like cute Cantor or Perry don't want to discuss their hair management programs. Oh, I've digressed into the political, nonetheless. None. The. Less. You are so MUCH more than what you've presented yourself to be. My last question hovers around the 2000-year-old Immaculate Conception vs. the not throwing stones at a lowly prostitute. Where have you sold your authentic soul? And, please reread the last sentence to realize that it is redundant ... there's a start, if you've missed that ... .
