for Wednesday, Oct. 5. This year the positive quality of your communication style emerges. You feel as if the world is your oyster, and in a sense, it is. You have the charisma, energy and good luck to create what you want. If you are single, you could meet The One. Don’t worry -you will know when you have met this person. If you are attached, the two of you spend many hours chatting together. As a couple, you might opt to make some major changes to your home environment. SAGITTARIUS might be more adventurous than you are.
Aries (March 21-April 19):
★★★★ You have more energy than usual. Not only do others recognize this quality, but they also want to be near you! Dealing with a key person needs to be done with care. You might want to change direction, whereas he or she does not. Accept your differences. Tonight: Do what you want.
Taurus (April 20-May 20):
★★★★ You’ll establish a stronger bond when relating to someone on an individual level, especially about major concerns and important decisions. Express your enthusiasm through action. Try not to steamroll an important individual in your life. Tonight: At a favorite place.
Gemini (May 21-June 20):
★★★ You have so many ideas that you will enjoy discussing them, but others might just want to push a project to completion. A partner unintentionally could throw your life into chaos, and he or she will anticipate a change in attitude from you. Be careful. Tonight: See what comes up.
Cancer (June 21-July 22):
★★★ Emphasize what is possible to get done instead of trying to do everything on your to-do list. Prioritizing could minimize your stress. Learning ways to increase your efficiency also will allow more time for fun. Try this approach for a day or two. Tonight: Squeeze in some exercise.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22):
★★★★★ Opt to try a different approach. Your creativity surges and allows you to see possibilities that others cannot. When presenting different ideas, walk people through them carefully. Sometimes you might need to tame your energy. Tonight: Be open to other suggestions.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 2 2):
★★★ You might experience a lot of tension. Know that this feeling comes from a judgment you are making about yourself. In a sense, you could be punishing yourself through stress. Figure out what you can do to avoid this behavior. Tonight: Head home early, if you can.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
★★★★★ Reach out to a close friend. This person enjoys your calls and visits. You also will reinforce your sense of well-being just by being around him or her. A family member could be irritating or demanding. Maintain your distance for now. Tonight: Have a long-overdue chat.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
★★★ Be aware of the costs of heading down a certain path. You might discover that reality could be totally different from what you had anticipated. Do some research, but expect the unexpected. Change your approach, and be less controversial. Tonight: Choose your words with care.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
★★★★ You wake up knowing that this is a very different day from what you were expecting. You might have revived a situation in your mind. You could overspend in order to relieve some tension. Focus on meetings and establishing the results you’d like. Tonight: Wish upon a star!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
★★★ If you feel off, consider spending some time by yourself. As a result, you will be able to recharge your batteries and deal with a personal matter. Let go of other concerns, and tailor this day just for you. You might consider doing this more often. Tonight: Not to be found.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
★★★★ A friend could make quite a difference in your day, but only if you let him or her express his or her ideas. You initially might have difficulty accepting this person’s thoughts. Try to be less judgmental, and you are likely to enjoy what comes down the path. Tonight: Do not go solo.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20):
★★★ Take a stand, and know what you want. If you desire a certain result, you will need to step up to the plate and run the show. Others can’t seem to imitate your ability to think through problems. You might not realize this fact, but they do! Tonight: Expect to go till the wee hours.
