This can be a time when joint affairs take on a very intense vibration. This can also include shared finances. Sparks can fly, and strangely, especially if you are more idealistic.

Virgo, beautiful Venus in your sign opposes Neptune in Pisces this week in your Solar Horoscope.

Libra 24 September - 23 October
The Sun and Mercury are asking you to think very carefully about your future hopes.

Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Your love life could turn out to be peachy and idealistic this week, or rather fiery and tempestuous. But the stake is whether you feel the core parts of your being are being cared for and recognized. If they are, you can make strident attempts to improve where you live, or protect love one's. If there is turbulence at home or emotionally, you can focus your attention on goals and ambitions.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Your desire to break out and do something different or free yourself from petty limitations as you see them, is going to be extraordinarily high this week.

Ideas or principles you hold strongly can be to the fore.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January

Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
What a week this can be Aquarius! If you're single but determined to change your status, you can find yourself much bolder in your approach to interacting with others. Then again, if any pre-existing relationships are not going as you hope, this week's Full Moon can see you more outspoken than for a long time. Financially, you may be tempted by something a little bit frivolous.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
The Sun moves into the part of your horoscope that's to do with hard work, application, self-discipline and attention to detail. But equally, a sense of injustice can be aroused if you feel that your sacrifice and commitment to a cause or a person, is not really being recognized. Although there is a very beguiling link which can see some sweeter vibes, old issues or grievances can erupt.
