LI­BRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT

You can be a great worker, once you make up your mind to move for­ward. Some­times you are not quite ready to blindly fol­low instructions–which can be a real plus in some cases. Once two and two make four, you will have no trou­ble ini­ti­at­ing things and get­ting them mov­ing. This is what to­day is about, al­though it may be a bit of a strug­gle. Cir­cum­stances can throw you into a po­si­tion where you must use your mind and deal with com­mu­ni­ca­tions of all sorts. This may be through ed­u­ca­tion, psy­chol­ogy, spir­i­tual en­light­en­ment or teach­ing prin­ci­ples and tech­niques. You have more than just the gift of gab. Your words and ideas can trans­port and en­chant lis­ten­ers–car­ry­ing them be­yond the world as they know it into the world as they wish it could be.


You may feel in­clined to cre­ate new ideas, think in new di­rec­tions and spot new ways your com­pany can grow and pros­per. This will cer­tainly help se­cure your job and is one of the rea­sons your skills are in demand. En­large and en­hance your job skills so that you are not tied to one com­pany. You could make plans now that re­quire de­ci­sive ac­tion to ac­com­plish. Joint plan­ning ses­sions go well this af­ter­noon–dif­fer­ences of opin­ion can be worked through at this time. Busi­ness and recre­ational travel are fa­vored un­der the en­er­gies avail­able now, as are out­door sports. This af­ter­noon you may be deal­ing with per­sonal mat­ters. Mak­ing peace with the past and com­ing to terms with karmic debts is im­por­tant at this time.


It is your turn for pos­i­tive re­wards. You might say the re­search is over and now it is show time. Your skills are show­ing and you do not have to prove any points as your work speaks for you. It is time to call your own de­ci­sions and this in­cludes choice of job, time, place, etc. Chal­leng­ing au­thor­ity and rock­ing the boat is in the past. The new broom sweeps clean; old pat­terns of or­ga­ni­za­tion and power are ripe for a new ap­proach. Your main in­ter­est now should be in how to find the best ben­e­fits or how to pro­vide what is needed for per­sonal and fam­ily health and in­sur­ance pro­tec­tion through means other than your work. What­ever you de­cide, you have a wealth of in­for­ma­tion from which to pull. You can ex­pect a more con­fi­dent at­ti­tude.


Am­bi­tion and the de­sire for sta­tus can get a lit­tle out of touch with re­al­ity. In­flated ex­pec­ta­tions could be a prob­lem un­less you get a grip on your­self. Still, you may find that you de­velop a knack for be­ing in the right place at the right time–and that can win you the ad­mi­ra­tion of others. You could de­velop a rep­u­ta­tion as a prophet of some kind. You are able to ap­pre­ci­ate and value all sorts of peo­ple to­day. Fam­ily mem­bers may find you es­pe­cially witty and ec­cen­tric this evening. You may have in­sights or break­throughs in re­gard to your liv­ing sit­u­a­tion or life cir­cum­stances. Others value you for your in­sights. Fam­ily and real es­tate mat­ter the most at this time. Your port­fo­lio of bank loans and in­vest­ments looks pretty promis­ing just now.


Your out­ward se­ri­ous­ness and no-non­sense ap­proach to things is ob­vi­ous to all. This de­lib­er­ate sense of re­spon­si­bil­ity comes across and is cen­tral to your per­son­al­ity and the way you re­late to other peo­ple. Ev­ery­thing is run through your check­point to see if it holds up and can pass the test. You can be a stick­ler with de­tails. This is a good work­day and much can be ac­com­plished. This af­ter­noon you may find your­self vis­it­ing with the young peo­ple in your fam­ily. Close per­sonal re­la­tion­ships are likely to un­dergo some test­ing. You de­cide to do things that will ce­ment your ties to others and make sure they are rock-solid; if they are not, they are apt to crack un­der stress. Re­spon­si­bil­ity to the other peo­ple in your life is em­pha­sized now.


Frus­tra­tion, es­pe­cially in get­ting things ac­com­plished, sets to­day’s mood. Ex­er­cise some con­trol over your emo­tions and be ready to let go of some long­stand­ing view. Think about what is rel­e­vant and im­por­tant in the larger scheme of life. You may be the one ap­pointed to take charge of a project to­day and you will be pleased to find sev­eral ways to move things for­ward. This af­ter­noon you may find your­self in­ter­ested in the prob­lems of young peo­ple. You could find your­self de­vot­ing one day a week to­ward the ad­vance­ment of child pro­tec­tion or chil­dren’s ed­u­ca­tional in­ter­ests. There is a keen sense of color, mu­sic and all the other arts–the beau­ti­ful and the com­fort­able. New real es­tate has be­come avail­able in your area and you plan a visit.


Vis­it­ing with a friend this morn­ing puts you in a great mood be­fore the work­day be­gins. You may be think­ing about up­dat­ing your re­sume, whether you are look­ing for a job or not, and mak­ing ap­point­ments for fu­ture busi­ness con­nec­tions. Make sure you do not overex­tend your­self for the next few days and you will find your en­ergy level bal­ances out nicely by mid­week. Be­ing on the go and keep­ing a fin­ger to the winds of change make you feel in touch. You will find your­self in group lec­tures, stud­ies or pre­sen­ta­tions this af­ter­noon. Learn­ing and com­mu­ni­cat­ing may also find you in the local li­brary with re­search on your mind. You may also learn about a new fi­nan­cial in­vest­ment at this time. This evening is for re­lax­ing and for love.


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 time­con­sum­ing 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.


New job, new project or just sim­ply solv­ing old prob­lems to­day puts you in a great mood. That feel­ing of well­be­ing also comes from good health as well as a job well done. Work­ing con­di­tions are good and the so­cial at­mos­phere sur­round­ing your work can be quite en­joy­able this whole week. Your love life is fast-paced and there is some se­ri­ous progress in all ar­eas of your life. There is a strong need for nur­tur­ing where you may feel the need to care for others or to have them care for you–per­haps on a public rather than pri­vate level. Com­mu­nity af­fairs or help­ing neigh­bors may be a part of these feel­ings. There are op­por­tu­ni­ties to be with your loved one in a so­cial gath­er­ing this evening. It pleases you to have others rec­og­nize your loved ones.


You can be as­sertive suc­cess­fully to­day as you move for­ward with your ca­reer de­ci­sions. You have en­thu­si­asm for your work and en­joy the process of suc­cess. Your pro­fes­sional path is clear and you will find your­self deeply in­volved at this time, with the tech­ni­cal side of your cho­sen pro­fes­sion. You will find that this is a lucky day as well. There are plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­pand your aware­ness and grow in many ar­eas of your life. One area may in­clude the area of fi­nance. New things are learned and this new in­for­ma­tion will cre­ate new ways for you to in­vest and, in time, dou­ble your money. This could mean in­vest­ing in stock or prop­erty, etc. This evening may be a good time to reeval­u­ate your bud­get. In­clude fam­ily mem­bers.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG

You find your way through the many turns and twists of solv­ing puz­zles to­day. You liked puz­zles as a kid but pro­fes­sion­ally speak­ing, you may have never thought your du­ties would be to solve puz­zles. When the public or the boss comes to you with ideas or with ques­tions of build­ing, fit­ting, match­ing or size . . . You can very quickly please the most dif­fi­cult re­quest. You feel suc­cess­ful and able to han­dle dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions. To­day you set good ex­am­ples to fol­low by tak­ing praise as well as crit­i­cism to heart and you learn, you grow and you teach. You will pros­per. In your per­sonal life, ev­ery­thing cen­ters on you. In­creas­ing your fit­ness can im­prove your love life. You will build en­durance while mas­ter­ing new lev­els of flex­i­bil­ity.


You could be en­joy­ing a rather av­er­age, or less than av­er­age day–find ways to reach out and help others. With work be­ing rather light just now, it would be a good time to learn some­thing new or com­plete any un­fin­ished projects. En­thu­si­asm picks up this af­ter­noon as you re­al­ize you are be­com­ing more ef­fec­tive in the work­force. You make peo­ple feel com­fort­able at work and at home. No mat­ter where you are, to­day the mat­ter of com­fort in a busi­ness meet­ing or a new co-worker’s quick ori­en­ta­tion is very im­por­tant. Your fear of be­ing left out in this life can be alle­vi­ated by jump­ing in with both feet and putting your ac­tions into pos­i­tive out­comes. New in­ven­tions are topics of con­ver­sa­tion tonight with fam­ily mem­bers.
