Bodice-ripping desires overtake you this week, thanks to Tuesdays solar eclipse in scintillating Scorpio. Like a spiraling surge of kundalini energy, this eclipse fills each cell of your body with lusty desire. Resistance is futile, Aries, so surrender to the feelings, even if you dont necessarily act upon them. Getting in touch with what turns you on will make you feel alive. This eclipse will do wonders to get the creative muse flowing and you might spend the rest of the week obsessively working on a musical or artistic project. Your urge to merge could intensify under the luminescence of this eclipse, and a two-person venture could become a sealed deal, faster than you can elope to an Elvis-impersonating officiant in Vegas. Scorpio rules your eighth house of sex, money, power, and transformation, so these are all arenas where you may see sudden developments. Shared resources, such as investments are highlighted. If youve been developing a project, someone may put big dollars behind your dreams. Solar eclipses bring sudden opportunities, but the timeframe for capitalizing on them is also short. Youll be forced to act fast, which isnt usually a problem for impulsive Aries. Theres one caveat to all these ecliptic developments, however. Messenger Mercury is still retrograde until November 26, and this Wednesday, it scoots back from Sagittarius into Scorpio. Mercury retrogrades are less-than-ideal times for signing contracts or starting relationships. That said, should the eclipse open up a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, you might not be able to stall till the 26th. Dont bypass something that is truly wonderful just because of a Mercury retrograde, Aries. Just do the appropriate research and background checks to ensure that anyone you get into bed with (literally or figuratively) is totally kosher. There could be some concealed information and you dont want to wind up in a shady deal or falling head over heels for a well-disguised lothario. But if you do your due diligence, this eclipse could be the beginning of a truly magical shared chapter in your life. Retrogrades rule the past, and Mercury retrograde could bring a few players from your past back into the picture. If they are of the safe, non-toxic variety, go ahead and explore the potential for a round two. On Saturday, your ruling planet Mars moves into Capricorn until December 25, igniting an ambitious ascent up the ladder of success. You may feel as if youve outgrown your current position and find yourself impatient to move into a bigger league. Take the bull by the horns. What is standing in the way of the success and prosperity you crave? If there are any holes in your experience or skill set, take it upon yourself to fill the gap. The old adage, its all about who you know will ring quite true. If your contact database is lacking helpful VIPs, get out and network. You might even apprentice alongside a master, but whats more likely is that this Mars phase propels you into a position of greater prominence and leadership. You could even be pinged publically for your expertise. Get ready for your close-up, Aries, and you could make quite a name for yourself by Christmas Day. Helpful men enter your orbit, so let the guys in your circle open doors for you; and don’t be shy about asking them to do so.
