Looking for an excuse to break out that first fall blazer? Here’s one for you, Bull: Your ambition goes full throttle on Monday, September 10, when go-getter Mars returns to Aquarius and your tenth house of success until November 15.

The red planet has already spent a good deal of 2018 in Aquarius—from May 16 to August 12 to be exact—but some of that ambitious energy was thwarted during a retrograde spell from June 26 to August 27. Now, stalled engines start turning over once again. For the next eight weeks, keep your focus primarily on the future and what you plan to accomplish before the year is through.

That doesn’t mean you can’t learn from any of this summer’s “failures” or unanticipated detours. But try to see them as important lessons that you learned and, thus, don’t have to repeat again.

Do you feel like someone else is directing YOUR life path? As Taurus Lena Dunham said, “The parts I enjoy playing aren’t available to me. So I have to write them.” Between now and November 15, take more creative license as you author the next chapter for your life.

Maybe that means writing up a dream job description and presenting it to HR. (Just make sure your current skill set is up to snuff before you do.) For entrepreneurial Bulls, this Mars cycle could kickstart a successful Q4 launch or growth spurt. Be prepared to burn some midnight oil in the name of starting a lucrative blaze.

On Tuesday, the illuminating Virgo Sun eases into a harmonious trine (120-degree angle) with private Pluto. This is a day for having one of those “the truth shall set you free” dialogues—the kind that could involve tears, hugs and unburdening of souls.

No, you don’t have to build a $40K soundproof room for these talks; but try to find a place that’s actually private so you can let it all hang out. Not that it has to get THAT emotional. This annual alignment can act as a branding consultant, helping you polish up your public presentation. How can you share enough of yourself to keep people intrigued—but not SO much that it feels like TMI?

So, Taurus, if you haven’t posted a status update since your early-summer vacay, maybe it’s time to let the world know what you’ve been up to. On the other hand, if you’ve been Instagramming every meal and tweeting every feel, try to be a little more selective about what you share.

Partnerships that have been running on autopilot could get a jolt this Wednesday, when Venus in Scorpio (and your relationship house) faces off with shock-jock Uranus in your sign. You could discover something surprising—and it could be in a good way—about someone you THOUGHT you knew inside and out.

Maybe you’ve been convincing yourself that everything was “fine” when the flow of give and take has fallen way out of balance. Clearing the air can strengthen the basis of your bond. (And, if this is a romantic relationship, we probably don’t need to mention the awesomeness of makeup sex?!) But easy does it! Lean in to Venus’ diplomacy instead of letting combustible Uranus turn you into a raging Bull.

For single Taureans, an unexpected attraction might bubble up out of nowhere. Don’t gloss over important questions like “Are you seeing somebody?” Since this pulse-quickening opposition will take place two more times this fall, on October 31 and November 30, there’s no need to jump into anything. This is just the beginning of an intriguing exploration.
