Free Daily Horoscope - October 11 2016
● General: Right now, you are craving substance over style -- gossiping about the latest celebrity news and shopping for new shoes at the mall are simply not interesting activities for a brain like yours. Instead, it's a good day to check out places that are likely to make you think about confusing or challenging ideas -- so visit a museum, foreign film house, or cultural center. Open your mind. Forget about any expectations regarding what kind of experience is in store for you.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You might have a feeling that you can't trust today... Like a song stuck in your head, you're letting your predetermined ideas get in the way of how much you're able to accomplish. Shake your negativity off and get to work.
● Finances: Some have the erroneous notion that you have to use people to be successful. You don't suffer from that mistaken idea. You've gotten where you are without using others as mere stepping stones. This has given you an excellent reputation. Keeping it polished motivates you to continue traveling the high road.
● Love: You're on a total ego trip right now after a major conquest. But you refuse to acknowledge the battle wounds of past romantic failures. Lighten up. A little vulnerability goes a long way. Use your natural faith that all conflicts can be resolved without more bloodshed.
● General: Someone you work with is all excited about their latest idea, but after taking a closer look at what they want to do, you are going to see big holes in their plan. You owe it to them to speak up and voice your concerns. Use your tact and charm to get them to re-evaluate their suggestion and help them fine tune it so that it resembles something that can actually come into being. They need a dose of reality, and you are just the person to give it to them.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Door number one is tempting, and door number two you should be careful of. You have no idea what's behind door number three. How your day unfolds depends on what level of risk you're willing to take in choosing.
● Finances: Everyone needs to take time off every now and then. That's why the powers that be invented personal days. If your weekends are as busy as your workweeks, it makes perfect sense to play hooky today. You'll be more productive for it tomorrow.
● Love: When the drinks are passed around tonight, help yourself to a cocktail or two and loosen up. Your stuffiness could deter that special someone from approaching you. Yep! After a couple of shots and a few rounds karaoke, you'll have your own, private mosh pit.
● General: With a strong, bright energy driving the next 24 hours, you're bound to attract more attention than usual today -- so don't you dare be shy! Share what you think and who you really are with people. Let your freak flag fly! Everyone you'll encounter is in an usually receptive frame of mind, so it's a great day to make new friends or romantic conquests. You can change important minds today without preaching or being too dogmatic about how you feel.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: A quick look around the office should let you know who's well rested and prepared, and who's suffering from the lingering effects of good time extremes. Choose your partners wisely.
● Finances: It's not clear if you are picking up on actual undercurrents or merely projecting them, but whether they are real or imagined, what really matters is your reaction to them. You're dealing with what you perceive as someone's hidden agenda rather than what they are presenting before you. Your suspicions may be on the money.
● Love: You have a penchant for pseudonyms and nicknames, which comes in handy when you set up your new online profile. Be careful, however. You might get carried away. Anything with the words, 'psycho,' 'pain,' or 'fluffy' should be avoided if you want a quality hookup.
● General: You always behave well around your boss, but how well do you mind your manners when you are around your coworkers? There could be spies among them, so make sure you are being good today. You should definitely avoid getting involved in any idle office gossip. Steer clear of people who just love to complain, but hate to offer suggestions on how to make things better. Changing your attitude is easy when you realize that a better attitude equals a better career.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: The time to do something for yourself was last night. You need to put your own needs aside and focus on work, now. That doesn't mean you can't sneak in a bit of self-indulgence here and there. Enjoy.
● Finances: Don't wait for things to get extreme before you deal with them. If you're the type who lets things fester in your personal relationships, that approach could be bleeding over into your financial decision making. Take a hard look at your bills and bank accounts today. Something needs your attention.
● Love: Your flag-waving will come in quite handy when you volunteer at a political party headquarters or in some other patriotic endeavor. There, you'll meet someone whose heart beats red, white and blue, just like yours.
● General: Today is all about taking time to establish things -- you can't be in a hurry if you want to get anywhere. So go slowly and take your time to explore what other people are looking for in life. Ask questions about your friend's goals and you just might be able to help them get one or two of them. And that sense of satisfaction is just what you need right now. You have a lot to share, a lot to teach -- and an awful lot to learn from others. This is a day for letting new ideas sink in.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You are totally fired up and ready to work. It's amazing what a little rest and relaxation can do for a body. Your boundless energy won't last forever, so go ahead and make strides while you can.
● Finances: All of your arrogance and all of your enthusiasm plus all of your desire don't add up to your goal. There is still one element missing and it's money. To get it, you have to make a good impression. That means don't bore people with what it all means to you. Focus on what's in it for them.
● Love: As selective as you are, you need to learn to enjoy your time, alone, out of the spotlight. You'll exhaust yourself vetting all your romantic candidates. Take a break, recharge and let the right person come to you, without relying on all your fanfare.
● General: Today you might want to go out and buy a bigger address book, because you are going to be meeting a lot of new acquaintances today. New names and faces will be filling your day with excitement and possibility. If you are interested in growing your social scene or expanding your career networking connections, this is going to be a banner day. But if you are fine with where you are and who is in your life right now, simply take all this new energy for what it is. Don't try to keep track.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You'd love to continue going wherever your moods take you, but it's time to get back to reality and your responsibilities. Force yourself to get a grip as early as possible, or you risk being taken along with the tide.
● Finances: You know how to make everything you do seem like fun. There is no such thing as drudgery in your day. The financial equivalent of sweeping the storeroom is like being at an exclusive party or better yet, a ball. Everyone wants to be where you are. Make good use of it.
● Love: You're a total nitpicking pain in the rear -- just ask your friends. Despite your pedantic proclivities, they still love you. Now, how do you convince that certain someone to overlook your peevishness? Let your innate love of beauty peek through your fickle facade.
● General: Valuable things can be found in some surprising places, so be very careful that you don't throw out the good with the bad today. Sort through the things that are making you unhappy. But remember that there could be something of worth in there, too. Perhaps there's some sort of lesson to learn? Be sure to retain a relationship, lesson, or idea that makes you a little uncomfortable right now, because those are the things that will prove themselves the most useful in your future.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You'd better hope you had a good night, because current projects are going to demand everything you've got, and then some. Fun will definitely be put on the back burner for the day, but that's not necessarily true of intellectual satisfaction.
● Finances: You can make money hand over fist but if you're overspending at home, there is just no amount of work that will keep your accounts balanced. Learn to spend only within reason. Watch out for ways you're out of line. Remember that you are the ultimate authority when it comes to where your money goes.
● Love: What's important to you right now is arousing debate -- whether it's the night before or the morning after. Pick a partner whose mental acuity matches your own. From there anything is possible... a co-authored book, a scientific breakthrough or the hottest romantic comedy.
● General: Whenever you're in doubt about how you should act today, just talk your way through it! Your way with words will turn the key and unlock many an exciting new opportunity -- especially if you are in a group situation. It is about time you took a larger role in leading your circle, and your attitude will be the perfect thing to motivate people who aren't usually 'team players' or cheerful participants. You will be able to lighten the mood and motivate some important people.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: It's the wrong time to be taking risks -- or even thinking about taking them. Stick to what's safe, even if it's become predictable or dull. It should go without saying that includes your day job.
● Finances: You are too clever by half. A quick study like you isn't taken in easily or often. You spot a fraud, and just when your boss is ready to sign on the dotted line. That puts everyone in a good mood but that's not the kind of compensation you are hoping for. Unfortunately, you'll have to speak up.
● Love: Doesn't matter what it is, especially in the realm of romance, once your set your mind to something, you will succeed. Goals now come to fruition, so be careful what you pursue, because you'll probably get it and you may not like it.
● General: Your dull routine won't seem so dull today -- the universe has a few surprises in store for you, and you are going to enjoy every single one of them! So reach out and embrace all the chaos as it comes. After all, it isn't boring, and it is stimulating your mind in a brand new way. If you get too anxious about how things are going to work out, you'll be putting yourself through emotional distress for no reason. Just roll with the unexpected reactions people have to your comments.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Some good feelings from your private life bleed into your workday. Interactions with your friends will change how you feel about your colleagues. Enjoy your newfound confidence.
● Finances: You're tempted to go shopping, but you should save instead. And the smell of a good restaurant is leading you by the nose, but you should buckle down and make your own lunch. All of your sacrifices are making you suffer. Consider it the caldron in which you just may emerge an artist.
● Love: Too many words will only trip you up, so if you're trying to patch things up, err on the side of silence: Less is more. Your eagerness to reconnect will probably make matter worse. Actions speak louder than words -- send flowers, buy candy. If it's really bad, gold is good.
● General: Few things in life are more exciting than gossip, and you are going to get some of the juiciest news today! The information you get could be more incendiary than you realize, so make sure that you don't share it too quickly. Spreading this kind of news at full speed could land you in hot water. You need to be careful and go slowly. Wait until you know the coast is clear before you start spilling the beans. Otherwise, you could get a reputation as someone who can't keep secrets.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: If you think you can get ahead without discipline, you're being foolish. But if you think you can get ahead with discipline alone, then you're being idealistic. Something is missing from your equation. Find it.
● Finances: It takes a lot of stamina to make it through this dry spell, and luckily for you, you have what it takes. Just hanging in there is impressive. Others don't know how limited your choices are and there's no need to let on. Keep displaying your better qualities.
● Love: You can squeeze a dollar out of quarter -- but be careful. It's not that people are shallow, but face it, you've got to spend money to attract quality companionship. Unlock your piggy bank and let Emeril cook for you and your date: No more burgers and fries.
● General: You can't be all serious all the time -- and you need to start having more fun. It's okay, you know! Luckily, there should be many opportunities for fun today, so don't turn off your sense of humor or your curiosity. New members of your social group or work team may be particularly fun: New people are an excellent source of good times, because they offer ideas and experiences that you haven't encountered before. Open up. Listen to what the newbies say. They might not know the status quo, but that is probably a good thing.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Don't count on connections with colleagues to salvage your day. If you want to extract any satisfaction at all, it will have to be in the form of an intellectual pursuit. Put your thinking cap on first thing in the morning.
● Finances: Some of your subliminal issues are trying desperately to thwart your day. Don't let them knock you off course. Keep your eyes on the prize if you want to stay disciplined. Inflating the prize in your mind's eye is always effective. How much money are you craving today?
● Love: One of your best assets is you mind your own business and expect others to do the same. But, this could be perceived as uncaring and cold. So wake up and smell the Bloody Marys -- give that certain someone a specific compliment to show you're paying attention.
● General: You may have thought that hitting the books and doing homework was behind you, but educating yourself should always be a part of your life's journey. Open your mind, accept that you don't know it all, and learn something new today! Equip yourself with facts, and you'll always be able to state your case and back up your argument. Things will go much more smoothly if you have logic and lots of information on your side. After all, it's not who you know -- it's what you know.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Everyone in the office seems to have a different opinion. If you have more than one boss, you'll have to come up with a strategy if you want to get anything accomplished. Pick one and stick with it.
● Finances: You want someone to pull some strings for you, and you'd better start polishing your script early in the day. Your only hope in winning them over is highlighting just how mutual the arrangement will be. Practice your back scratching while you're at it.
● Love: You don't mind being passed up right now. Frankly, you'd rather rubberneck and watch all the drama in the lives of others. You despise being the center of attention. That's okay, you'll find someone who enjoys the limelight and will take you along for the ride -- only you don't have to drive.
