Love horoscopes: Sept. 30 – Oct. 6
Uranus is the planet of revolution and change. It spins into your life like a whirlwind and upsets everything that isn’t nailed down. Pluto is the planet of ordeals and the transformations that arise from them. It will shake your life to its foundations leaving you to pick through the rubble of your ivory tower dreams and expectations. When these two planets square – like they will this week – then it will be hard to tell if you’re experiencing a breakdown or a breakthrough. What can be said for certain is that things will never be the same and if he’s still around on the other side of all this then you know that he’s a keeper.

ARIES (March 20 – April 18)
Don't dial down who you are. Aries women are often told to muzzle their opinions and to curb their more ambitious impulses so as not to “emasculate” men. But isn't that just a recipe for winding up with a wimp? It's much better for you to be you. That way any prospective love interest knows what he's getting into ahead of time. This may shorten the list of candidates, but at least you know that the men who make the cut will be men worth getting to know.
TAURUS (April 19 – May 19)
Most people are of two minds about everything. There's the mind you know about and the one that you don't. Right now the mind you don't know about is pushing you to make changes in your relationship — perhaps even to end it. If you're unconsciously setting things up so that you spend as little time together as possible or find yourself flying into wild rages when you do, then it's time to talk about going your separate ways because your mind is already made up — even if you don't seem to think so.
GEMINI (May 20 – June 19)
Living a double life is nothing new. Geminis do everything in twos. However this week could prove to be hard to manage given what's going on with Uranus and Pluto. This pits your public persona against your private concerns and both will demand your undivided attention. This is one of those times when you'll wish that you could be in two places at the same time. Thankfully you're adept at juggling several concerns. Nevertheless something has to give because you can no longer prop up one life at the expense of another.
CANCER (June 20 – July 21)
Oct. 4 is when you will wake up and smell the coffee. This concerns an emotional blind spot in your life. Maybe it's a relationship with someone you keep making excuses for, a friend that you favor (to the detriment of those who deserve better), or it could even regard a loved one with whom you harbor a grudge. What occurs on Oct. 4 will be pretty mind blowing thanks to the new moon/Uranus opposition. This is when you will see for yourself what others have been trying to tell you for months.
LEO (July 22 – Aug. 21)
Expect craziness on the 3rd and 4th. This will come from your lover's side of the fence and he'll be just as surprised as you. Can he help it if an ex calls for help in the middle of the night or a sibling shows up on the front doorstep with a packed suitcase and a note from his spouse telling him never to return? It will be something like that. Do what you can to help out but be ready to set limits should anyone overstep boundaries or overstay their welcome.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 – Sept. 21)
That decision you tabled back in April makes a re-appearance on Thursday and you won't be able to sidestep it this time. A change in your partner's finances is going to force the issue of commitment. It's hard to tell if it's an upturn in fortunes or a downward spiral (sorry we're dealing with unpredictable Uranus here), but what's certain is that he will have to move or even relocate as a result. So are you going with him or staying put and saying goodbye? You'll know what's what by the 8th.
LIBRA (Sept. 22 – Oct. 21)
Have you done a complete circle? It can sure feel that way when the sun opposes Uranus this week. Uranus is the planet of revolution in astrology. It's the cosmic energy responsible for you making all those radical changes in your relationships recently. But revolution can also refer to a full turn of the wheel which is why you're feeling like you're back where you started love life wise. History doesn't have to repeat itself if you don't want it to. Learn from it by saying no to a controlling type this Thursday.
SCORPIO (Oct. 22 – Nov. 20)
Obsession and suspicion could get the better part of you with the sun currently traveling through that part of your solar horoscope that pertains to self-undoing. You may think it's a sign of passion, but it's actually a surefire way to drive your paramour away. Who wants to be cross-examined about where they've been? As the song says “paranoia will destroy ya.” Don't let this happen to you — especially when insecurities peak on Oct. 1 and 4. You have to learn to trust people and this week would be a good time to start.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 21 – Dec. 20)
When you're born under a zodiac sign that's half horse and half human, then it makes sense to take things at a full gallop. Love doesn't emerge after months of friendship. It pretty much hits you like a bolt out of the blue. You can expect something along those lines this week as the sun forms an opposition to Uranus — the planet of surprise twists. Just make sure that the person you're falling for isn't already married to your best friend or dating your cousin. You don't want to cause a scandal.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21 – Jan. 18)
This is a wonderful time for Capricorn bachelorettes because you will be inundated with dates and invites. This whole fall quarter right through to the end of the year looks promising. However you will need to ease up on the testing. There was a time and place for it before, but not now. Right now you're just testing to test and no one can hope to pass something like that. Not even you. Broadcast that you're looking and available and enjoy the next few weeks as men line up to woo you like never before.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 19 – Feb. 17)
Once again your schedule looks like it's usurping the rest of your life. Obviously you can't say no to projects and deadlines, but you can find ways to work in some romantic time with your partner or spouse. Take him out to dinner or sneak away one afternoon for a tryst. Just because you have a packed workday doesn't mean that you can't shake it up a little. This will do a lot to keep his interest and his faith. It will also do a lot to keep you going.
PISCES (Feb. 18 – March 19)
Your loved one isn't being particularly loving right now. And it's hard not to take it personally when he's barking at you all the time. This makes you want to snap back at him in turn, but is it worth the aggravation? One of the best things about being a Pisces is that you can tune out the world around you and go to your secret happy place. Do this on Friday when tensions peak. Chances are he'll want to come with you. Tell him he's welcome only if he promises to behave.
