You might want to load up on supplies and plan to hunker down at Chateau Scorpio for a while starting this week. On Tuesday, September 18, hyperactive Mars in your domestic quarters locks into a tense square with wrench-throwing Uranus in your partnership realm. This is the third and final of these mashups in 2018. The previous ones were on May 16 and August 2—that second time, Mars was retrograde, and this time around, Uranus is the one in reverse, suggesting that issues that arise now aren’t new ones. There may be out-and-out tension brewing in your innermost circle—and peace talks may seem like an impossibility early this week. If you still feel like trying, get ready, Scorpio: You will have to do some major negotiating to find a happy medium for all the fractured parties. And with these irascible planets at loggerheads, people may not be up front about desires or willing to share their true feelings. As much as you want to settle this for once and for all, you might be wiser to table discussions until next week. In the meantime, hold your own cards to your chest like a professional poker player. With new friends, don’t try to go too deep too fast early this week.
