Libra (September 23-October 22) – One Day at a Time

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) – Love
You are a mix of extremes Scorpio. On one hand, you can be super thoughtful and caring about those around you, however on the other you can come across and annoying and very rude. You need your ‘me’ time to relax and recharge your batteries, and without it you become overly cranky. There is no character you will better relate to than Mickey from the show Love. A talented radio producer with a great work ethic, she can also come across as mean when that switch flips. The show centers around the idea of two random people who meet in an L.A. grocery store, and pursue a relationship which is more on again/off again than anything you ever seen. As confusing as it is, it makes for great entertainment!
