It's true: Your zodiac sign plays a part in how you can live your best life — from which sex position you should try to targeting your dream-career direction. Romper partnered with astrologer Maressa Brown to share how every sign can put the current astrological aspects to work and enjoy even more happiness, wellness, and love every week. Here's your weekly horoscope for the week of October 17 through October 23.
We might still be recovering from drama and delays caused by last weekend’s full supermoon, but there's more excitement in store this week. Thankfully, chances are it'll affect you in a positive, if not thoroughly joyful, way. The planet of love and money, Venus, will be entering Sagittarius on Tuesday, where it'll remain until November 11. Instead of just dreaming about that hiking trip or date night in the city, this romantic, adventurous energy will make us all want to take action so we can have new experiences. Venus' move will affect the social and love lives of fire signs (Aries, Leos, and Sagittarians) and air signs (Geminis, Librans, and Aquarians), the spiritual, inner sector for earth signs (Taurus, Virgoans, and Capricorns), and career sector for water signs (Cancers, Scorpios, and Pisceans).
Then, on Saturday, the sun will officially usher us into Scorpio season, which lasts until November 21, so anticipate a month filled with emotional intensity and fascination with the darker side of life (hey, Halloween!).

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Around Wednesday, when the planet of action Mars joins up with the planet of transformation, Pluto, in your tenth house of career, you'll get the green light to go hard after a longtime professional goal.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
If you're attached, you can look forward to bolstered intensity between you and your bae from Saturday until November 21, thanks to the confident sun in your seventh house of partnership. If you're single, you'll have a greater chance of meeting someone with whom you share a spiritual, maybe even super-sexual connection.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
While the confident sun is in your 10 house of career from Saturday to November 21, you're primed to receive recognition from others for your own or your team's work on a project.
