FRI­DAY, OC­TO­BER 13, 2017 Fun Fri­day the 13th

The su­per­sti­tion of Fri­day the 13th be­gan with the seizure of a me­dieval mil­i­tary or­der on Fri­day, Oct. 13, 1307. The down­fall of this group, the Knights of Tem­plar, had such an im­pact that the day was con­sid­ered to be un­lucky. To­day the play­ful Leo moon aims to turn the par­a­digm inside out: For­tune fa­vors creative mis­chief.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you find you are spend­ing just as much time think­ing about what is not hap­pen­ing as you are think­ing about what is, know that it’s the thought-ra­tio of un­hap­pi­ness. More time in the present moment equals more hap­pi­ness.

TAU­RUS (April 20-May 20). The word am­a­teur lit­er­ally means “one who loves.” Those who do not ex­change their work for money have the lux­ury of de­liv­er­ing the very purest per­sonal ex­pres­sion. En­joy be­ing in the am­a­teur stage for as long as it lasts.

GEM­INI (May 21-June 21).

You’ll wit­ness some bril­liant cre­ativ­ity and per­haps par­tic­i­pate in it. Don’t be sur­prised if there’s some­thing a lit­tle sub­ver­sive about it, as that’s usu­ally part and par­cel with creative bril­liance.

CAN­CER (June 22-July 22). Tra­di­tions speak to a group iden­tity and from them can spring a sense of be­long­ing. It’s a fine time to make some plans for these fi­nal parts of the year that will build the bond be­tween you and the peo­ple you care about.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You need at­ten­tion. Ev­ery­one does. But few work at mak­ing it so worth­while for oth­ers to give it to them. You of­fer a lot of fun, use­ful­ness and love­li­ness in re­turn for their fo­cus. This is what you’ll be up to to­day.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).

There’s some­thing dan­ger­ous about hav­ing your money eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble to you to­day. The more time you take to think about your pur­chases, the bet­ter off you’ll be.

LI­BRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have passed this way be­fore, but don’t worry: You’re not falling back­ward, re­gress­ing, or re­peat­ing need­less and mind­less pat­terns. You’re sim­ply get­ting ex­tremely fa­mil­iar with this road that you will soon own.

SCOR­PIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A high-in­ten­sity life can still be a happy one, but it works a lot bet­ter when you have healthy re­lease valves built into it. Go on the search for bet­ter ways to equal­ize the pres­sure and ef­fec­tively cope.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).

You’ve a sense about what oth­ers want from you -- not the ob­vi­ous need on the sur­face, but the un­der­ly­ing crav­ing that they wouldn’t dare ask for even if they could ar­tic­u­late it. CAPRI­CORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19).

The joy isn’t in the other thing: It’s in you. Fur­ther­more, joy doesn’t get stolen all that of­ten. Usu­ally peo­ple hand it over in a mind­less or weak moment. Pro­tect your joy.

AQUAR­IUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18).

Your alone thoughts are dif­fer­ent from the thoughts you have when oth­ers are around. It’s time to con­sider how the phys­i­cal and emo­tional pres­ence of an­other hu­man be­ing changes things for bet­ter or worse.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You aren’t try­ing to make a per­son love you, though you wouldn’t mind if it hap­pened nat­u­rally. You’re ready for a lit­tle more re­spect, friend­ship, at­ten­tion and even pas­sion.


Many times you’ve cy­cled through the spring of hope, the toil of sum­mer, the au­tumn of reap­ing and the dor­mant dreams of win­ter. This time will not be the same. Now you gather new en­er­gies and ideas, and you’ll emerge in 2018 a trans­formed be­ing. Broaden your scope in March. Travel in May. Give back in July. Aries and Tau­rus adore you. Your lucky num­bers are: 9, 40, 2, 33 and 14.


You started for one rea­son, and there’s a higher rea­son you’ll stay with it. TAU­RUS: A date is more than a meet­ing. It’s an op­por­tu­nity to cre­ate a to­tally unique ex­pe­ri­ence and share it. GEM­INI: You’ll in­clude oth­ers, ask for their thoughts and opin­ions, and pull them a lit­tle closer. CAN­CER: The fun is where you are. And when you tell some­one else they should be there too, they’ll lis­ten. Don’t ask! De­clare. LEO: You’ll be a hit when you de­liver bad news or a bor­ing prac­ti­cal­ity mixed with your own brand of sweet­ness. VIRGO: Be­fore you re­act, you think, “What if that were me?” Your re­ac­tions will be more em­pa­thetic and soul­ful be­cause of this. LI­BRA: You will shine be­cause of -- para­dox­i­cally -- your hu­mil­ity. It takes a big per­son to go small. SCOR­PIO: It’s good to show that while you’re no clown, you refuse to take your­self or life too se­ri­ously. SAGIT­TAR­IUS: As you work out your con­fu­sion over some­thing, you’ll wind up clear­ing it up for an­other as well. CAPRI­CORN: The other per­son’s feel­ings are out of your con­trol, but do what you can any­way. AQUAR­IUS: To hold on with a firm grasp, or to let go? Only you know the an­swer. PISCES: Walls of pro­tec­tion also bring iso­la­tion. Bring them down.


The hot at­trac­tion is be­tween Li­bra and Leo this week­end -- a kind of ar­che­typal odd cou­ple. Leo can be ef­fu­sive, en­thu­si­as­tic and out­ra­geous, while Li­bra sticks to the book of man­ners. Leo gets to the truth with a joke; Li­bra finds it through sub­tle and ap­pro­pri­ate con­ver­sa­tion. Both push each other to be more con­sid­er­ate and open-minded peo­ple. Note: These two make stel­lar creative part­ners, too.
