for Tuesday, Oct. 11. This year your optimism attracts many different people. You discover how important it is to allow more ingenuity into your life, especially your personal life. You tend to get locked into a certain type of habitual thinking; try to break out of that mode. If you are single, your challenge will be to make good choices. You could hit it off with someone who is already a part of your life. If you are attached, the two of you tend to overindulge each other. Sometimes you need to pull back and see if that is working for both of you. AQUARIUS is always a good time!
