Scorpio is the eighth sign of the Zodiac and certainly the one that is intense and can keep secrets forever. To be a friend of a Scorpio you must be aware they are champions when it comes to keeping secrets.

Never underestimate the ability of a Scorpio to know all, and because of this they make great detectives. They can take charge at a moment’s notice if situations get out of control.

Scorpio is actually an emotional loner, but with a strong interest in sex. That is why they are known as the sexiest sign of the Zodiac.

Because of their hidden nature and their ability to easily understand people and their motives, they often end up in charge both at work and home.

Kris Jenner, born on Nov. 5, 1955, and Lamar Odom, born on Nov. 6, 1979, are both Scorpios. Kris certainly takes charge in her household and Lamar has kept plenty of secrets.

People born this week: Dan Peek, Nov. 1, 1950; Alvin Chea, Nov. 2, 1967; Kendall Jenner, Nov. 3, 1995; Perry Moore, Nov. 4, 1971; “Bubba” Watson, Nov. 5, 1978; Emma Stone, Nov. 6, 1988; Parker Posey, Nov. 6, 1968; Tara Reid, Nov. 7, 1975.

There is a solar eclipse and new moon in Scorpio on Sunday morning, Nov. 3. That is also the day daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m. So remember to turn the clocks back. And if you have a project that needs to get started, the time to get it under way will be after Sunday, Nov. 10. In the meantime, the best day this week will be before noon on Election Day, Nov. 5.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) If you are not living the good life now you might try changing your attitude. Try seeing the glass half full instead of empty and you will be surprised at the way you feel. A mood swing will turn your life upside down if you just let it happen. Try not to repeat the same tale more than once and that will do it.

What the Family Dog Can Teach You About Parenting

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) If you have been working hard and really trying to get your act together in the past few weeks, you will see results soon. Now how you handle the results is all up to you. The last thing in the world could happen if you just clear up your act and let the good times move into your life.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Your mind will be quick to come to conclusions this week, so avoid any serious decisions. Because along with the fact your ruling planet Mercury is retrograde, you could be annoyed with a few details. That makes it time to go slowly and look both ways. Otherwise you will pay dearly.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) With Jupiter remaining in Cancer, look for an opportunity to expand your horizons. But right now, look but don’t touch since Mercury is retrograde. Just consider what you should be doing to make things better for your family, then wait and move after Nov. 10. Check the details in any plan very closely.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Since your life seems to be surrounded by drama, some might think you are addicted to the chaos it creates. If that is the case, then this is a good time to bring the drama under control. All you need to do is smile instead of cry. You will be amazed at the people who turn up to have a look at the new you and then decide to stay around.

Virgo (August 21 to Sept. 20) If there is upset around you, the cause could certainly be Mars in Virgo until Dec. 8 and your ruling planet Mercury retrograde until Nov. 10. So get used to the activity and understand this is merely a new learning experience. Mars could bring a new friend to have fun with once in a while.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) If you are considering taking a calculated risk on someone new, you might want to slow down and make no decision until mid-November. It is a waste of time and energy to make a move now since it will become a massive future mess. Avoid moving on this now and you will be one pleased Libra.

Theater Review: Two River's 'Noises Off'

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Because you may be forced to make changes soon, try and understand it will be for your benefit in the long run. Just don’t force any issues or make any moves until after Nov. 10. There is no rush and knowing whatever you do will turn out well should make life easier for everyone.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) If you find yourself romantically distracted and daydreaming about what could be, just know you are dealing with Neptune. Although life may appear rosy also be aware there is another eclipse on the horizon and you could head into a tailspin concerning your love life. It will be fine.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) It is a time of trust for you. If you can understand your open and honest behavior will pay off well financially within weeks, you will feel better. The situation you now find yourself in will resolve itself and you will be the winner. Your positive attitude now will bring good results.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) You should be dealing with a number of serious situations and if you remain calm they will turn out in your favor. If you present a complete change of face, your newfound pals will love you and reward you well. Just don’t finalize anything until mid-November. Then go for it without a worry.

Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) If you have done the necessary work on your current creative opportunities it will pay off in your favor. Your sensitive nature could take a few things personally, but try and ignore the nonsense. You are in the driver’s seat even if you don’t know it. So keep smiling.
