Free Daily Horoscope - October 1 2016
● General: Your romantic skills might not be as sharp as you would like them to be, but that might just be because you're being so selective with your heart. It's true that the more you open yourself up to people, the more you are going to get hurt -- but what is also true is that if you never open up you will never connect with anyone. The more you open yourself up to people, the faster you will find what you really want. Give it a try, today -- tell someone you'd like to get to know them better.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: It may not be a great day, but there is the possibility of one tomorrow. Whether you're looking forward to work or just plain rest and relaxation, the promise of it is all the fuel you need.
● Finances: Your new routine is starting to sink in. As a matter of fact, it's becoming, well, routine. It will take some effort on your part to make sure everything doesn't slowly sink from here into plain old mundane boredom. If that means taking a few hair-raising risks with your hard-earned money, then so be it.
● Love: You're an ardent supporter of something. Of what, remains to be seen. Latch onto a cause and put all your energy into endorsing it. Life's pretty quiet on the romantic front right now, so you'll need a diversion to keep your head on until things pick up again.
● General: If other people around you get loud and angry about a surprise announcement today, you should definitely not follow their example -- no matter how justified they may be. Screaming at someone isn't going to mitigate the stress or anxiety, it will only increase it. Be mindful of your role in every conversation, and try to be a force for mutual respect, not power struggles. There will be another day for you to get down and dirty -- and get things off your chest.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Why resist? After all, it's a good day. If a power struggle has been brewing, let yourself out of the ring. You can kiss the whole thing goodbye later, whatever side you end up on.
● Finances: Your love for money has gone from affection to obsession. Needing something as much as you need cold, hard cash just isn't healthy. There's no need for the whole 'if you love it set it free' routine, though. Just keeping it in the bank is enough. Don't touch, and don't even look, either.
● Love: If you've kissed, definitely don't tell. It's one of those days when keeping your secrets to yourself is a great idea, especially if you're having a covert fling with someone. Now's not the time to allow this info into the public domain.
● General: Every good thing must come to an end, and you'll be saying goodbye to a pleasant person or experience today. But don't be too sad for too long -- saying goodbye to one thing just gives you the opportunity to say hello to something new! It is a great day to put into action one of those ideas you've kept simmering on the back burner for so long. You can make something happen and embark on a whole new journey. Take advantage of the possibilities that are all around you.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: You need a gentle reminder that you're at work, not among friends. You can surround yourself with like-minded people after if that's what you enjoy. For today, keep your opinions to yourself.
● Finances: When it comes to money and what to do with it, you have to be explicit. But with family and even close friends, you don't expect to have to spell it all out. Today you can't assume your intentions are understood even if to you they seem obvious. Make sure you explain every last detail.
● Love: If someone, even that hottest of hotties, tries to check out your personal info, draw the line. No pulling out your wallet and rifling through pictures; no scrolling through your contacts. Even if it seems harmless, it's not. Your business is your business.
● General: You're coming to the close of a serious negotiation, and now it's time to finalize things. You finally have all the information you need, and the terms are never going to be more favorable to you than they are right now -- so sign along that dotted line without hesitation You've been holding back your enthusiasm for a while, sort of 'waiting to exhale' -- but you get to breathe freely today! Enjoy the page you are turning in your life, because you are onto bigger and better things!
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: If you thought your career would only go up, up and away, join the rest of the crowd. The only thing rising sky-high these days is doubt. Count your blessings and hang on to your sense of accomplishment.
● Finances: You're obsessed with big numbers, but that's not getting you anywhere. It's counterintuitive, but the more you focus on the smaller issues that need cleaning up, the easier it will be to see your shining star. What you need to do is not exactly polishing silver but the effect should be somewhat similar.
● Love: A lunch date -- what could be better? If you're planning a date, do it during the day. If it's a flop, you have an easy out. But, if he or she's hot to trot, this thing could go well into the evening, perhaps even breakfast in bed!
● General: There are a lot of different emotions churning around deep inside your heart, but today it's finally going to be easy for you to get a handle on each and every one of them. It's time to do some sorting -- toss out the emotions that are useless, like regret. Focus on your feelings of anger and determination, because those are what will motivate you and help you gain more confidence for what you need to do today. Introspection can create a great deal of strength.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Making it through the day takes more willpower than you can muster. Letting yourself off the hook isn't your only option, though. You can actually do more than endure if you find the key to your motivation.
● Finances: You're as thrifty as the next person, regardless of how much money you used to spend. Even if you have always been this conservative with your cash, there still have been some subtle changes in your financial strategies. It's time to review your budget and add up their effect.
● Love: The responses from your online profiles are coming in like crazy. Sure, it's tempting to gorge at the beauty buffet, but it's even better to practice restraint. Think quality versus quantity.
● General: It's awfully tempting to let other people take the reins today and just follow along with their plans -- after all, it is easier to go where you are told to go and do what you are told to do. But fight the seduction of passivity today! The universe is giving you opportunities to initiate new schemes, social plans or personal projects -- and you should try to take advantage of at least one of these. You have to push yourself in the direction you really want to go.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Don't get sidetracked just yet. There's still too much happening in the office for you to be wanting to be off work. For you to stay focused, there's no such thing as being too rigid.
● Finances: If your biggest achievement of the day is organizing your wallet, then you can say you've accomplished something important. You have money or bills that are lost in the shuffle. A new project will get off to a better start once you get a grip on things.
● Love: No sense in bucking the system today. If your pals call up and want to party, just do it. You won't meet anyone sitting at home by yourself. All kinds of crazy, interesting people are out wandering the streets today and you're liable to run into and connect with at least a few.
● General: You might not feel comfortable being a joiner, but you should consider aligning yourself with a group today. There are many perks you're missing out on, not to mention the fact that spending time with a diverse group of people on a regular basis will open your world to all sorts of exciting new stimulation. Seek out groups based on topics or issues you're interested in, or maybe in relation to a pastime you enjoy. Becoming a member is the first step to becoming a leader.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You'll have time for your friends tomorrow. For today, stay focused on colleagues. Whether you're the ersatz leader or the real one, they're looking to you for answers.
● Finances: That nagging voice in your head is one of your biggest assets. It's egging you on and not letting you rest. Ignoring it is worse than acknowledging it, so start paying attention. This is your chance to be a good listener.
● Love: If you have nothing interesting planned, consider going on an overnight adventure, whether it's to the funky hotel down the street or a last-minute, overnight camping extravaganza. And if you have a friend with benefits who's free, bring them along, too.
● General: Ok, so you might not exactly be in love with your career right now, but that does not mean that there is no bright light shining in your professional future. You are paying into an account of good karma that is going to pay off sooner or later, so just keep plugging away. You will get rewarded -- the universe assures it. It's important for you to keep thinking about the goal farther down the road, and not to get too emotional about your situation right now.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You may feel like you're in the midst of a career crisis, but actually, your career is caught up in a storm bigger than you and it combined. It's a whirlwind, but don't let your feathers get too ruffled.
● Finances: Paying attention to the small details pays off as they reveal a valuable secret. But that just gets the ball in motion. You have plenty of information to collect before you do any real planning, but once the cat's out of the bag, you can consider yourself on your way.
● Love: Everyone's just so annoying right now. They either want too much information, too much of your time or both. Turn everything off and go incommunicado for a few hours. If it's working, remain detached from the world for 24 hours.
● General: This is a great day for action, but it's not such a great day for deep thinking. Your brain is excellent at coming up with new schemes, but maybe not so hot at understanding complex ideas or performing elaborate calculations. Mental absorption is not going to be your forte today, so it's not a great day for lectures or convoluted foreign films. You just won't have the patience to pay attention for any length of time. Social activities are a much better option for you today.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: It's a good day for gambling because you're in luck. The bigger your risks, the bigger you'll win. Reach into your breast pocket and take out your secret list of things you've been meaning to ask your boss for. Start from the top and work your way down.
● Finances: Some technicalities drive you crazy because they keep you from moving forward with your plans. But they are there to protect your financial interests even if it seems they are costing you good money in delays. Calm down long enough to cover the necessary details.
● Love: Your anger is totally misdirected at someone. You've been blaming this person for a bad breakup that happened years ago -- but when's the last time you turned the spotlight on yourself? Consider your part. You won't find peace until you accept your culpability.
● General: It's not going to be an easy day for you, but it could be a very pivotal one. By simply hanging in there and doing your best, you will prove something to someone who could be very important in shaping your future. A tough discussion has left you feeling unsure about your side of the argument, but you shouldn't let anyone's hostile attitude shake your confidence. You deserve to get more respect, and luckily you are about to get some. Once you get through today, it will be easy going.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Business problems are literally all around you. At least you know it's not personal. You may feel you deserve more than you're getting, but history has other ideas.
● Finances: A bit of research goes a long way. Due diligence is a must for anything involving money. Go right down to the small details wherever possible, and where you can't delay decisions until you can. A missing piece of the puzzle comes to you from a long distance.
● Love: You better take a knee and talk to someone before you pursue this latest catch. You're so caught up in the details, you're missing the whole picture. Judge him or her by their exterior: If he's 35 and still lives with mommy, consider yourself duly warned.
● General: Exploration will be the best thing for getting your juices going today, so seek out things that are new or even strange to you. Of course, you won't have to step too far out of your comfort zone to get the kind of experience you're looking for. Simply by choosing a different spot for lunch, a new store for your grocery shopping, or a different route to work, you will uncover a hidden gem you've never seen before. Integrating a new discovery into your life will be fun and easy.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: End your working day on an upswing. The way to do it is not to win, it's to compromise. A power struggle has you thinking otherwise, but being fair should be your only option.
● Finances: If something seems like a good deal, it is -- for the other party. You can't be too careful when dealing with other people and their business propositions. On the other hand, it doesn't take looking too much beneath the surface to see their real agenda.
● Love: You're simply a breath of fresh air -- totally charming and off the charts. If you were going to snag that hottie, now would be the time. So if you find him or her alone and looking bored, glide on up and start a conversation.
● General: You've got more freedom than ever before -- are you making the most of it? Be your own boss in every sense of the word today. On the job, you can make a bigger impression the bolder you get -- so speak up and volunteer for the task no one else wants. In love, communicate what you need and believe it when you tell yourself that if you don't get it, you need to move on. You need to make sure that you're with someone who understands how to give you what you need.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: It's impossible not to get carried away in the drama swirling around you. Don't force yourself to ignore it. Dive right in when it comes to the problems of your colleagues, dirty details and all.
● Finances: Some days you're too critical when it comes to helping others: Every last qualification needs to be checked off of your list before you step up. Today, though, you're playing loose and fast with the assistance. Even though it's money and not sweat or time you're contributing, think a bit longer before you donate.
● Love: You're okay not being in the spotlight, which makes now a great time to impress the heck out of a hottie. Don't you know, people loooove talking about themselves? Start asking questions -- by the end of the night, he or she will be head over heels.
