LI­BRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT

Po­lit­i­cal is­sues in your work world may slow your own per­sonal progress–pace your­self. Others may find that you are witty just now. Be­come aware of the peo­ple, things and think­ing that might hold you back or keep you from pro­gress­ing. Some­one will seek you out for coun­sel­ing. Others value you for your self-re­liant qual­i­ties. This is a great time to ex­am­ine your own sit­u­a­tion, just what you think about the progress you have made. Now is the time to re­view any changes that may be nec­es­sary. Your emo­tions and the feel­ings of those around you may be very clear and easy to work with at this time. A lov­ing at­ten­tion to de­tails and a sense of sat­is­fac­tion in do­ing what is right are some of the qual­i­ties that come to your at­ten­tion just now.


You can demon­strate a great deal of un­der­stand­ing when you are needed in sen­si­tive sit­u­a­tions. There is a good op­por­tu­nity to com­mu­ni­cate con­cern­ing par­tic­u­lar groups today. This may mean speak­ing to a high school au­di­ence on some­thing you and others be­lieve in strongly or ex­press­ing your un­der­stand­ing to a group of peo­ple that need a more pos­i­tive di­rec­tion. You could be most per­sua­sive with higher-ups as well and could be elected to speak on be­half of your co-worker friends. Your in­ner re­sources are ac­cented. You can ex­pect a sense of good­will from those around you. You may be able to feel par­tic­u­larly kind to­wards a friend or loved one this evening. You are at your most el­e­gant in a so­cial sit­u­a­tion tonight–it could all be po­lit­i­cal.


Things are hap­pen­ing, and your ca­reer or path de­pends on your own de­sires, which are strong. You are able to use good com­mon sense to make all the right moves. This is the time to get ahead by tak­ing ac­tion. Your busi­ness sense is en­hanced and you are able to get down to what is im­por­tant when it comes to mak­ing de­ci­sions af­fect­ing your ma­te­rial wel­fare. Fi­nan­cial gain and ma­te­rial well­be­ing are among the brighter prospects be­fore you now. There may be a ten­dency to em­pha­size the ma­te­rial too much, which could lead to the feel­ing that the things you own, own you in­stead. Care­ful with moody emo­tions today; they could pro­duce flare-ups, harsh words and ar­gu­ments. Think about hav­ing a garage sale this week­end. Plan to use lots of color.


Clear de­ci­sions af­fect­ing others could be made today. Your ef­forts re­ally pay off and things seem to run smoothly. Now you have a de­sire for sus­tained work that al­lows you to co­or­di­nate and or­ga­nize like never be­fore. A tem­po­rary open­ing for high tech gam­bles could pay off big just now. Bring to fruition un­com­pleted tasks. Un­con­ven­tional hob­bies and other forms of self-expression that break from the norm play a big­ger part in your life this week­end. It could be that some­one is hav­ing a birth­day this week­end and you have been strug­gling with what to give. The op­por­tu­nity to es­cape the ev­ery­day wor­ries through a hobby or some form of self-expression is a plus when it comes to gift-giv­ing. There are a few changes at home that are sim­ply de­light­ful.


Seek­ing pro­fes­sional ad­vice is a wise move at this time. Emo­tional chal­lenge, prob­a­bly offered from some­one close to you, may rock this time pe­riod a bit. You may have trou­ble un­der­stand­ing those who seem too emo­tional. Chal­lenges, how­ever, pro­vide you with many choices and this is a good time to be cre­ative and show off your in­stinc­tive tal­ents. Cir­cum­stances may tempt you into re­belling; but don’t. Do not use emo­tions to solve prob­lems; ask your­self where the truth and the re­al­ity re­ally ex­ist. You will make wise and pos­i­tive choices. You are ag­gres­sive in the pur­suit of gain­ing in­sight into all that is new, dif­fer­ent and out of the or­di­nary. Elec­tron­ics, com­put­ers and com­mu­ni­ca­tions could be a big part of your life at this time.


Clashes with au­thor­i­ties or some­one in charge are all pos­si­ble at this time; you are pre­pared. Your ideas, thoughts and plans may un­dergo some changes. In get­ting down to the fun­da­men­tal or ba­sic ideas, you will find fewer complications in life. This is a great time to be­gin a diet–the en­er­gies are work­ing in your fa­vor. Your men­tal en­er­gies, ideas and thoughts may un­dergo some trans­for­ma­tion or change–a nat­u­ral sense of growth and de­vel­op­ment is avail­able. Do not force things. Be pa­tient and let any frus­tra­tions fiz­zle out on their own. Your plans for your­self and your fam­ily are pos­i­tive and will work to the ben­e­fit of all. The peo­ple you love en­joy work­ing as hard as you work. This af­ter­noon would be a good time to pur­chase think­ing-of-you cards. ARIES 21 MAR – 19 APR

Your per­sonal goals will come into fo­cus soon–now may be a good time to plan your re­tire­ment, re­gard­less of your age at this time. Con­tinue work­ing and plan­ning out your goals that you want to see ac­com­plished in this life­time. If you are not in­volved in a love re­la­tion­ship now, you may find your­self in a new re­la­tion­ship be­fore the end of this month. An at­ti­tude of self-con­fi­dence is a win­ner these days when it comes to suc­cess­ful re­la­tion­ships. Faith, op­ti­mism and a yearn­ing to ex­plore all kinds of new hori­zons are some of the fo­cal points in your life now. Travel, ed­u­ca­tion and other ways to stretch your hori­zons open new doors of op­por­tu­nity. Re­li­gious, philo­soph­i­cal and cul­tural mat­ters are likely to have spe­cial ap­peal for you through the week­end; en­joy.


There are con­ver­sa­tions in the el­e­va­tor and the break room about ad­vance­ments today. An in­crease in salary is likely for many of the em­ploy­ees, in­clud­ing you. Work­ing in groups is pos­i­tive at this time. You are able to teach a new em­ployee about the com­pany and the job he or she will be work­ing. New ways to com­mu­ni­cate will make teach­ing as well as learn­ing less time-con­sum­ing than ever be­fore. You have got­ten into the good habit of de­vel­op­ing your think­ing into most pos­i­tive forms and you en­joy trans­form­ing a neg­a­tive to a pos­i­tive–and there are ben­e­fits! You may be more talk­a­tive and able to deal with dis­turb­ing is­sues than in the past. A dia­logue with an older per­son may take place this af­ter­noon. En­cour­age­ment goes both ways.


You may find your­self strug­gling for the right words today and you could de­cide that you have had it with your vo­cab­u­lary. Now is the time to ex­pand your knowl­edge of words. If you are not tak­ing a class or com­pet­ing with another per­son to learn a new word a day, it could be very dif­fi­cult to keep that learn­ing curve in process. Re­mem­ber that a new habit takes about three days and a con­cen­trated ef­fort, no mat­ter whether you are solo or with another, will be suc­cess­ful. Think about tak­ing a cre­ative writ­ing class to en­hance your speak­ing or writ­ing skills. This is a re­ward­ing day and you see progress in all av­enues of your life. This evening, a lover or child who is bright plays a big role in your life. This per­son is en­cour­aged by your sup­port.


Big changes af­fect­ing your ca­reer, sta­tus and rep­u­ta­tion are likely soon. Dar­ing to be dif­fer­ent gets you no­ticed and could get you ahead in ways you never ex­pected; care­ful. An op­ti­mistic ap­proach may set you apart from others but, if you have help­ful in­for­ma­tion that will as­sure a pos­i­tive out­come, then you should share the in­for­ma­tion. An older per­son or higher-up will give you some good di­rec­tion today–lis­ten. Per­haps this out­wardly ex­pres­sive per­son is who you feel you have be­come; re­mem­ber that di­rec­tion is most im­por­tant. Other peo­ple may be­come most in­ter­ested and then loose in­ter­est quickly if you have not formed a di­rec­tion for your pos­i­tive en­ergy. While shop­ping this af­ter­noon, re­mem­ber to check out the com­peti­tors’ prices; phone.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

Give your­self some credit–your com­mon sense will help you in how you make de­ci­sions with busi­ness trans­ac­tions–par­tic­u­larly to in­crease your in­come. You are able to make the right moves in this area. Things are hap­pen­ing and your ca­reer or path de­pends on your own am­bi­tion, which is strong at this time. It is your turn to take ac­tion–progress is out­stand­ing. Hard work and de­ter­mi­na­tion is your best way for­ward and it cer­tainly is an at­ti­tude that the boss loves to see. You can ex­pect a lit­tle boost, some sort of ex­tra sup­port or recog­ni­tion from those around you. You may even find your­self get­ting out of debt. Per­sonal re­la­tion­ships take more time to de­velop these days, es­pe­cially if there is no room for two view­points. Pa­tience is a virtue.


This is a good time to se­cure the pos­i­tive. Let your ideas be known, on pa­per or in a meet­ing. Do not be­come frus­trated by a for­get­ful ten­dency; make lists and get into the habit of check­ing the list fre­quently in or­der to stay fo­cused. You want to un­der­stand both sides of an is­sue and fig­ur­ing out what is needed can be very valu­able. Har­mo­nious ties to others are what you de­sire; re­fine­ment and el­e­gance are what you seek. The ideal part­ner­ship, the per­fect bal­ance, the high­est stan­dards of truth and beauty are all the things that quicken your pulse. Con­sider set­ting aside time es­pe­cially for you and your loved ones this week­end. There will be time to work on a cre­ative project in your own home. Send a greet­ing card to a friend or give him or her a call.
