for Monday, Oct. 24. This year you often find yourself in the limelight. You become a leader or someone whom many people seek out. This type of responsibility might feel heavy. Get plenty of rest, and don’t hesitate to say ‘’no’’ to any request that does not suit you. It is important to honor your needs first. If you are single, many opportunities to meet people emerge. If you are authentic and open to meeting someone, you will. If you are attached, you and your sweetie need to make your bond a high priority. Otherwise, your busy schedules could prevent you from spending quality time together. LEO can challenge you.

Taurus (April 20-May 20):
