TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 20). Something quiet and small turns into a very successful and perhaps even famous venture. There’s big love coming your way in the weeks to come. Through 2018 make your life easier by dealing with honest people — and, it goes without saying, being one yourself. Travel brings luck, especially a road trip next month. Cancer and Aquarius adore you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Since you already know what you think, you’ll try other people’s opinions and viewpoints on for size. This increases your capacity for empathy and your power, too, since it’s easier to influence those you truly understand.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). There are those who will give before you ask, in ways you never expected. It’s not really a favorable dynamic now, as some contributions come with too much attached to them. Besides, you want to make your own way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If there were a multiple-choice test on your life right now, you’d be bubbling in a lot of answers like “None of the above” and “All of the above,” as big groups of events seem to be either happening or not happening.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It happens all of the time. Smart people do dumb things. Enlightened people do petty things. Simple people do complicated things. Maybe we should stop labeling people and just accept them and what they do.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Excitement and boredom are both states of mind that are inextricably linked to their impermanence. You’ll relax into a deeper understanding of life as you accept what cannot be maintained indefinitely.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20). Learning is always forward movement, even when what you are learning seems to stop you from going further. Ask a different question. One good question may very well be all it takes to change everyt
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19). You’ll slip into your zone. The frame of mind that comes with this allows you to be quick, masterful and impervious to any obstruction that would stop a less powerful operator.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20). Trust isn’t an all-or-nothing game. It’s about learning a person’s nature to know what you can expect. Observation is the way. You’ll ask a seemingly innocuous and open-ended question and then back off to see what’s revealed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There’s a relationship that’s taking your focus now. You two are like porcupines in the snow. You need warmth but keep a certain distance. You’ll find the balance.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You have no agenda and are not looking for what you can get out of a situation. You’re simply there to help in whatever way you can, and because of this, you will be able to help many.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Remember when you experienced an instant attraction to someone you didn’t know, and then got to know the person and saw the attraction erode? It could go another way this time, though. You’ll have to say hello and find out.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). New aspirations will form in your mind and heart. Bits of brainstorms will align. Disparate ideas will bond to make plausible ones. All that chaotic, random energy bouncing around crystalizes into a real thing.
