for Tuesday, Oct. 4. This year you make waves wherever you go. You attempt to be more subtle, which works at times, but it still doesn’t minimize your impact. Your career is likely to benefit from this attitude. You tend to choose your words with care. If you are single, others might discover that there is a wild child within you. Don’t compromise who you are, no matter what. You are likely to meet someone who adores the real you. If you are attached, the two of you often have serious discussions. Accept each other’s differences, and you both will be happier. SCORPIO knows how to get what he or she desires.
Aries (March 21-April 19):
★★★★ You can afford to be
spontaneous without being particularly concerned about the results. In fact, letting go a bit might help you to recharge your batteries. A sense of seriousness about doing what is appropriate could override your impulsiveness. Tonight: Get some exercise.
Taurus (April 20-May
★★★★★ You have a strong sense of direction, but so does someone you often have to work with. Handle this person’s willfulness diplomatically, and know full well what your limitations are in this situation. You could opt to go solo more often. Tonight: Sort through invitations.
Gemini (May 21-June 20):
★★★★ Your playfulness will be best expressed through your ability to deal with an overly serious and demanding associate. This person relaxes when he or she is with you. Getting a project or idea off the ground will demand his or her support. Tonight: Catch up on news.
Cancer (June 21-July 22):
★★★★★ Deal on a one-onone level with someone you enjoy hanging out with. A friend or associate might have a big idea that involves you, and he or she could be quite pushy. See how much you can do. Once more, your imagination speaks. Tonight: Be ready to let go of worries.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22):
★★★★ You often view others as being stubborn and determined. Today is no different, though if you stop and look closely, you might find that you are the one who is giving the impression that it is your way or the highway. Loosen up, and you will like the result. Tonight. Head home.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):
★★★★★ You know how to communicate your intentions. You also might be seeking information in return. You prefer teamwork, but someone who feels as if he or she has all the answers might present a problem. Deal with this person as little as possible. Tonight: Cut a discussion short.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
★★★ Slow down your spending. You easily could go overboard when buying a new item. A domestic or personal issue might be the stimulus behind this purchase. Use caution with a decision that someone else seems to be forcing on you. Tonight: Happiest at home.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
★★★★ You might have too much energy, and as a result, you could be pushing others too hard. Don’t assume that everyone thinks like you do. If you proceed with that attitude, you can expect to get some flak. Consider taking a step back for now. Tonight: All smiles.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
★★★ Pull back, and allow someone who has similar leadership skills to yours to take the lead. Can you share the stage? More often than not, you steal the limelight. For now, let others enjoy being the center of attention. Observe, and you will learn a lot. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
★★★★ Your determination could become an incorrigible demand. You might not want to back off. You are likely to carry a banner that says: ‘’Nothing is going to stop me.’’ Ask yourself whether this attitude is necessary. Only you can answer that. Tonight: Hang out with a loved one.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
★★★★ You see life from a very different perspective than others. You can walk your own path without any support. That quality of independence often scares those around you, especially if they are more dependent or needy. Tonight: Wherever you are, you make an impact.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20):
★★★ While others are quick to react, you pull back and think through a problem first. Consider your alternatives carefully before you leap into action. Try identifying with others. Understand the dynamics involved, and you will make the right decision. Tonight: Follow the music.
