Money changes everything, and it's the main item of focus for Aries this month. Walking a thin line of too much or not enough is the issue at hand, and how to make the best of both situations isn't simple.

Supplying shimmering reflections with a firm but flexible brush, these liquid liners are precise in providing beautifully bold and long-lasting lines that give your eyes a lavish look worth their weight in gold.
  

A partnership of some importance takes even more precedence in November, Taurus. Make sure you are seeing it with clarity to understand the truth of its value to you.

It reduces puffiness, dark circles, and other typical signs of aging.
  

Time is of the essence this month, Gemini---don't spread yourself too thin. Nailing down all of what's expected of you will set you off in the right direction.
