SCOR­PIO 23 OCT – 21 NOV This may not be the best time to make im­por­tant de­ci­sions that af­fect your liv­ing sit­u­a­tion or life cir­cum­stances. Be­cause oth­ers may chal­lenge the di­rec­tion you are tak­ing, you may have to fol­low your heart–par­tic­u­larly if you are sin­gle. This is a much bet­ter time to re­lax. If you are go­ing away for the up­com­ing hol­i­days there will still be some ar­range­ments to be made. Peo­ple may seek you out for your ad­vice re­gard­ing some very per­sonal and emo­tional is­sues. You will be able to han­dle any dif­fi­cul­ties with lit­tle stress. Short trips around town may bring your at­ten­tion around to some re­cent changes. Be­ing out with the pub­lic in a shop­ping or chore type of ac­tiv­ity may have you feel­ing a part of this ex­cit­ing time.

SAGIT­TAR­IUS 22 NOV – 21 DEC This is a time that sig­nals a greater than usual in­ter­est in re­la­tion­ships, so­cial con­nec­tions and the arts–on a more in­tel­lec­tual level than in the past, most likely. See­ing both sides of an is­sue and fig­ur­ing out res­o­lu­tions to op­pos­ing views take on more im­por­tance in your life. Do you know how to lis­tenyou are learn­ing! Talk­ing too much, not lis­ten­ing and fin­ish­ing other peo­ple’s sen­tences are the things you are learn­ing to minimize in your life. You are also learn­ing to en­joy a few of the lis­ten­ing type of tech­niques. You may get in­sights into your liv­ing sit­u­a­tion or sup­port sys­tem at this time. You may re­ceive un­ex­pected help or sup­port from those around you for what­ever you want to ac­com­plish. Ro­mance and life’s other plea­sures take cen­ter stage.

CAPRI­CORN 22 DEC – 19 JAN It is time to re­ally get down to the business of clean­ing up your act, tak­ing care of loose ends and at­tend­ing to any per­sonal de­tails you have ne­glected up to now. Health, food and phys­i­cal con­di­tion comes un­der scru­tiny and you work to give this much at­ten­tion. Next time you are gro­cery shop­ping, pick out those fat-free foods that will help you feel bet­ter–care­ful, some of them are too full of su­gar, which turns to fat. You can ex­pect a lit­tle boost, some ex­tra sup­port or recog­ni­tion from those around you, for what­ever you choose to do to­day. This after­noon you may feel that you are in touch with oth­ers; the flow of con­ver­sa­tion is easy and open. There is an op­por­tu­nity to re­lax with your loved ones . . . Per­haps a fun movie or din­ner out this evening.

AQUAR­IUS 20 JAN – 18 FEB Shar­ing some fun ac­tiv­ity with your friends may put you at your most imag­i­na­tive to­day, at least when it comes to ideas and thoughts. You may de­cide to gather ev­ery­one’s opin­ion about some­thing and write an ar­ti­cle for a well-known magazine. You could do this . . . Think about it. There is a lot of laugh­ter to go around–why not share it!?! A city li­brary could be hav­ing an an­nual sale and this may give you the op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase some old edi­tion for your own pri­vate book col­lec­tion. This is a won­der­ful time to add to a col­lec­tion or to sell part of one. Trav­el­ing a short dis­tance with your loved ones to a craft or art show of some sort may fill your day with good mem­o­ries. This is a day full of op­por­tu­ni­ties to en­joy re­la­tion­ships.

PISCES 19 FEB – 20 MAR Avoid try­ing to prove a point to­day–oth­ers hear what you have to say but may not im­me­di­ately re­spond the way you might like. Clear com­mu­ni­ca­tion will be im­por­tant to you now but con­fir­ma­tion of the mes­sage may not al­ways be avail­able; trust in your com­mu­nica­tive and so­cially sen­si­tive abil­i­ties. You may find your­self con­cen­trat­ing on your own goals this after­noon. Your tim­ing should be per­fect for what­ever you would like to ac­com­plish. Teenagers may re­quire that you get tough. You may need to help young peo­ple un­der­stand where re­spon­si­bil­ity ends and fun be­gins. A so­cial af­fair this evening is a great suc­cess–a co­worker from the past may hap­pen to be at the same party. Ev­ery­thing works in your fa­vor tonight.

ARIES 21 MAR – 19 APR A touch of fi­nan­cial ge­nius can re­sult in phe­nom­e­nally suc­cess­ful in­vest­ments. Cre­ate a team for learn­ing and in­vest­ing and re­port­ing gains and losses and track your in­vest­ments on pa­per. Per­haps this could be a group where all of you can have fun and gain in good fi­nan­cial in­vest­ment ad­vise­ment. You may be pleased at the re­sults by the end of the first year–it has pre­vi­ously been suc­cess­ful. Think about form­ing friends with peo­ple that have a sim­i­lar life dream. Charisma is high­lighted now– you de­velop a deeper un­der­stand­ing of many of life’s mys­ter­ies and taboos. You have a clear vi­sion into your own in­ner sense of val­ues, how you ap­pre­ci­ate and love. This is a good time to ex­am­ine what is im­por­tant and last­ing.

TAU­RUS 20 APR – 20 MAY This is a good day to get things done, espe­cially around your liv­ing area. You have good eye-hand co­or­di­na­tion and seem de­ter­mined to give a sus­tained ef­fort to what­ever task you choose. There may be some re­pair or yard work you will want to do be­fore the winter be­gins. You may be close to work on a re­mod­el­ing job this weekend. This after­noon is a good time to en­joy the out-of-doors and per­haps, ex­er­cise a bit. Per­haps you and the young peo­ple in your fam­ily, or your friends, will en­joy some form of horse­back rid­ing, fish­ing, tar­get shoot­ing, darts, etc. Your per­sonal charisma is high­lighted this evening and you and a loved one may en­joy re­lax­ing in a lo­cal restau­rant. If you are not ex­pect­ing a child now, you could be in the near fu­ture.

GEM­INI 21 MAY – 21 JUN Be­ing more in­volved with neigh­bors or sib­lings sat­is­fies a deep emo­tional need. Com­mu­ni­cat­ing be­comes an im­por­tant part of your day. You may de­cide to in­clude an­other neigh­bor and have a big garage sale soon. A new cy­cle be­gins for you, sig­nal­ing a greater than usual in­ter­est in re­la­tion­ships, so­cial con­nec­tions and the arts–on a more in­tel­lec­tual level than in the past, most likely. A fam­ily squab­ble helps to show off your prob­lem­solv­ing abil­i­ties. You are usu­ally able to see both sides of an is­sue– the sit­u­a­tion calls for a com­pro­mise. Mar­riage and other close re­la­tion­ships give rise to great ex­pec­ta­tions now. This is a time to en­joy and ap­pre­ci­ate your ties to oth­ers and to seek and pro­mote har­mony be­tween peo­ple.

CAN­CER 22 JUN – 22 JUL This will be a time of in­tro­spec­tion–you may find your­self elim­i­nat­ing some of the plans and projects yet un­com­pleted. You may take an in­ter­est in your own psy­che, re­li­gion and spir­i­tual ideas. This could be a good time to gain a fo­cus through writ­ing. List mak­ing may elim­i­nate false starts. Or­ga­niz­ing your thoughts and plans is a good thing. This after­noon you may find your­self help­ing a young per­son. Whether this is with home­work or just lis­ten­ing, you will­ingly ex­press your com­pas­sion and en­thu­si­asm to help. You are a solid sup­porter, al­ways grav­i­tat­ing to the heart of things. This evening you have some per­sonal chores or per­haps a hobby that keeps you quite busy. You will find plenty of time to re­lax and com­mu­ni­cate with loved ones tonight.

LEO 23 JUL – 22 AUG Se­crets have a short half-life around you– you have them out in a wink of an eye. You are bril­liant when it comes to in­sights into the mind, psy­chol­ogy and mo­ti­va­tion. Your in­ten­sity is ob­vi­ous and some may pre­fer to keep their dis­tance rather than sub­ject them­selves to your ob­ser­va­tion. Noth­ing is passed over with­out be­ing turned in­side out. Some­one may chal­lenge your val­ues or good tastes. You may find it dif­fi­cult to be ap­pre­cia­tive of oth­ers just now. This is not the time to shop or make se­ri­ous de­ci­sions. Charisma, self-trans­for­ma­tion, the de­vel­op­ment of per­sonal power are the things that play a big­ger role in your life. Re­mem­ber, that tiny causes can lead to big ef­fects. This is a time of deep per­sonal changes.

VIRGO 23 AUG – 22 SEP You may not feel that you are in top men­tal gear. Con­sid­er­ing it is satur­day, a stay­ing-inbed-at­ti­tude could be an at­ti­tude you want to keep for this morn­ing. To­day, how­ever, is a great day to be­gin an ex­er­cise and health­watch pro­gram–in­vite a friend. Join­ing a spa would be a good gift for you to re­quest. You may feel more like shar­ing some spe­cial time with a loved one this after­noon. You could be feel­ing re­flec­tive. Close re­la­tion­ships take on emo­tional depth. Feel­ing cared for and needed is com­fort­able. A game of golf or a movie, a play . . . Any­thing you en­joy do­ing with your honey is a good thing for this evening. There are gen­eral good feel­ings with a sense of har­mony that makes this a happy time–a time of com­ing to­gether.

LI­BRA 23 SEP – 22 OCT You may have found your­self re­belling against the rules lately. You may have to take the reper­cus­sions of this ac­tion qui­etly. The re­sults for you now are good–you have ini­ti­ated change and that is im­por­tant. You are con­cerned with is­sues of free­dom and in­de­pen­dence–far beyond the average per­son. You may find a pos­i­tive av­enue for your en­er­gies this after­noon through some form of in­ven­tion, elec­tron­ics, etc. Tak­ing the time to think through big de­ci­sions is a pos­i­tive move. You make your way through ideas and con­cepts. With a calm at­ti­tude, you can ex­press your thoughts to oth­ers quite well. Your home en­vi­ron­ment, friends and sur­round­ings re­ceive your at­ten­tion this evening. A young an­i­mal com­pan­ion will make you laugh.
