Weekend Forecast: You've got no time for small talk, Scorpio, and even less so now. On Friday, your planetary ruler Pluto spins retrograde in your third house of communication until September 19, making you long for meaningful exchanges above all else. Streamline your social calendar and scale back on the larger get-togethers this weekend. That way, you can devote time to friends who really know how to go deep. As retrogrades rule the past, an old rival could reappear. Instead of viewing this as a negative, try to see this nemesis through fresh eyes. You never know…you may both decide to bury the hatchet or (gasp!) even pair up together on a co-created project. If nothing else, a little spark of competition can fuel your creativity. Necessity is the mother of invention, right? If your mind trails to an old connection, follow your curiosity and look this person up. Reuniting will feel so good and might even bring you a breakthrough insight about yourself. On Saturday, mental Mercury shifts into your sixth house of efficiency, a two-week phase meant for maximizing your productivity. Rein in any thoughts of gutting the kitchen or building an extension onto your house. Think more along the lines of creating a new organizational system for your closet, or hanging shelves and organizing your collection of books. Getting outdoors is a must this weekend as nature revives you on every level. If you find it hard to pull yourself away from revamping Chateau Scorpio, get your hands dirty in the garden or create a communal rooftop hanging zone with a few of your neighbors. On Sunday, you're one hot commodity, drawing in admirers left and right. Despite the throngs of adoring fans, you'll only have eyes for you-know-who. Make extra efforts to connect one-on-one, ideally behind closed doors. It's the private moments that will bring your bond to the next level.
