Leos this week might experience a slight let down.

At the end of the week, you might have to make excuses to someone close to you. Perhaps there will be a promise you can’t keep, or a favor you backed out on.

Scorpios this week should carefully protect confidential information. Be careful what you send to the group chat, honey. The astrological situation is such that one careless word and your secret will be revealed. - XOXO gossip girl. It's good that this is the only possible trouble for you.
This week in the life of many Scorpions comes a decisive moment in personal matters. Single scorpios will get a chance to hear the words they covet the most. Married or LTR Scorpios will be surprised to find that the passion within the marriage has not disappeared anywhere. Perhaps it will flare up with a vengeance if you throw on a sexy halloween costume and have yourselves a romantic night in.
The intellectual component of Sagittarius this week will be on top. You will feel like you have what it takes to win a debate. Use this boss energy in the best way that you can. Perhaps, you can use it to create more harmony around yourself.

Your own inner demons can make Capricorns forget about peace this week. This is an occasion to self-reflect and stop allowing things that disturb your peace into your life. A great mood will be restored as soon as you start to devote more time to something fun. Try to take in and enjoy the small things: how picturesque nature is, how delicious your morning coffee is, how cozy it feels to curl up by the fire with a new book. Look for joy in your surroundings.
By the end of the week, dear Capricorns, you will have confidence that your personal life has finally returned to normal. A surprise from a loved one is not ruled out. Single Capricorns can count on signs of attention from potential partners. Time to bring in the roster!
The astrological situation this week is not too favorable for Aquarius. You could be asked to keep someone's secret you don’t approve of. Try to calmly analyze the situation you find yourself in this week. Some positive solutions will come from meditating on an issue.
The end of the week is a great time to text or call one of your old friends. Perhaps some of you will consider it relevant to revive the past romance, to apologize to some person, to pay more attention to your loved ones. Just be careful with those tequila shots and texting your ex. Trust me.
Pisces will be the main directors of this week's events. Main character energy! The astrological picture regarding your zodiac sign is not without uncertainty. In which direction you take the ship, in that direction it will sail. However, it is still important to monitor the direction of the wind (that is, to objectively assess the situation).
Less doubt in personal matters. Much, if not all, depends on you, dear Pisces. Cut the cord with a person who is no longer your leading man or lady. If someone isn’t prioritizing you, or making you feel loved and respected, you should move on. There is someone out there who will give you all the things you deserve. Maybe you’ll meet someone cute at a halloween party ;)
