SCORPIO (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Deals with the devil are nothing new. People make them all the time. And the one you made weeks ago seemed pretty straightforward as far as the necessary evils were concerned. However the Venus/Pluto opposition on July 21 shows a certain colleague, client, or employer calling in favors that are very different from what you had in mind. Thankfully you were born under a sign that’s as shrewd as it is resourceful. Things will get down to the wire, but Mercury out of retrograde on the 31st shows you wriggling free. Next time examine the fine print before signing on for any Faustian bargain.
