As of Sept. 9, Venus — planet of love, romance, prosperity, and luxury — enters luscious, sexy, and mysterious Scorpio. Of all the signs in the zodiac, Scorpio is the most tantalizing of them all.

Prepare for your love life to enter a period of addicting excitement.

This mutable earth sign is famous for its genius analytical skills and penchant for organization. If your emotions are running wild, the cosmos are prepared to help you focus.
