Monster Mash of Mars and Pluto

Cosmic harmony rules this Halloween as Mars and Pluto sing “Monster Mash.” A lucky trine involving these planets combines with the cooperative vibration of the Libra moon to help people join together in fun and mutual benefit. It’s an excellent night for young love, too. Ask good questions to get to know the person behind the mask.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll find yourself in a situation that brings out your feisty side again. If you didn’t know better, you’d say someone is trying to egg you on! Aries people who dress up will be stunning in a costume that highlights the warrior spirit.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Halloween is just the excuse you needed to get glamorous and over-the-top. If you don’t do it by dressing up, you’ll do it with the daring attitude that goes with today’s good mood.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It’s in you to be adventurous and wild — and also restrained and discerning. Much depends on which twin you listen to: the mischievous one or the reasonable one. Tonight, a costume that reflects your sense of humor is favored.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Celebrate your moon ruler by being a frighteningly fun part of the Halloween festivities. Like the moon, you’re always changing. You might even wear more than one costume today!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be in an affectionate mood, and you’ll touch people with your words if it’s not appropriate to touch them with a hug. If dressing up, you’ll be a hit as the superhero you are most like or the villain you are most unlike.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your moral compass is unfailing, which is good because you’ll have to guide someone who is directionless. If dressing up, you’ll be a hit in a choice that’s outrageous and/or out of this world.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). When the spotlight swings to you, you’ll be ready for it — not rehearsed exactly, but life has prepared you to shine! If you dress up, your natural artistry will shine as a pop star or a famous actor.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There’s a lot you want to pursue, and you’re not sure what to do first. Rest assured, a person can’t have too many interests. If you dress up tonight, an animal costume will put you in touch with your wild side.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be required to communicate with someone who either figuratively or actually doesn’t speak the same language. Tonight, dressing up as something very large or very small will enhance your perspective.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Regardless of your beliefs about the afterlife, you may really feel like your ancestors are with you or are trying to communicate something important to you. If you dress up, you’ll be a hit as an eerie ghost.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The sweetness of life isn’t lost on you. The day is marked by a nostalgia that carries into the night. If you dress up, consider wearing something that represents a childhood fantasy.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll enjoy thinking about all that has gone on in your life and times and how different it is from any era before you. If you dress up, historical or retro costumes will suit you best.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 31). The year features new passions and desires. You may grow in distinctly different ways from a partner, but this only serves to connect you more deeply. Reinvest the spoils of a lucrative December into some April business. Let tasteful people advise your lifestyle upgrade in January. February’s ceremony will be beautiful. Leo and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 23, 25, 16 and 50.

MERCURY RETROGRADE TIP NO. 5: Fight right.

People have a tendency to fight about silly things when Mercury is retrograde, but mature individuals know that a fight about driving or dishwashing is seldom really about driving or dishwashing. Mercury in Scorpio lends an opportunity akin to an X-ray photograph. If you care to look, you can see the inside workings of an argument and find out what it’s really about.

Asking a direct question such as “Why are you so mad?” is not usually the best way to find the answer. It’s too confrontational, and the other person may not even really know where the anger is coming from, especially not in the heat of the moment. A more effective way is to drop the argument and get some distance on the matter. Once everyone has calmed down, take some private time to sort out what’s happened. Try to take yourself, your needs and your ego out of the picture and view the scene from an objective place. Imagine that you’re high on a mountain and looking down on things from a perch in the clouds. What might the other person be feeling? What needs are being met and not met in the situation? Solutions are born from an objective, cool-headed place.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Actress and pop star Willow Smith is now half of the duo Melodic Chaotic, with DJ Fabrega. This Scorpio, who was born into media royalty, has a wide-open astrological chart that is well rounded with planets in water, fire, earth and air signs. Her natal Mars in Virgo indicates a smart and hard worker with the potential to be enormously successful in many different pursuits, show business-related or not.
