Free Daily Horoscope - October 14 2016
● General: Don't be afraid to step up and take on a new responsibility or two today. Adding a few more ambitions to your life is not an invitation to failure. Sure, you won't be able to reach every goal for yourself. But the more goals you do set, the better your odds are for reaching at least one of them. You can't think in complete terms -- right now, close enough is good enough. Being perfect is never possible, but that should not stop you from trying to be better than you are right now.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You'll have no trouble staying grounded today. You're doing it without even trying. Having both feet on the ground is healthy for short periods of time, but your next step is to jump-start your drive for success.
● Finances: You would love to pour all of your energy into a relationship, but there is no one to douse like that today. Getting lost in dreams is your only solace. Your karmic points are sitting in the bank, though, so you can use them in the future. They're not earning interest but they are still working for you.
● Love: Be willing to let go of your unwillingness. Sure, it sounds counterintuitive, but your stubbornness is doing nothing for you love life. Loosen up -- experiment with different types of people in new situations.
● General: They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and today you are living proof of it. Some weirdness in other people will catch your attention, and you will find yourself attracted to them because of it. Do not be surprised if no one around you understands your fascination with this group. Feel free to try to defend your position, although you will probably not be able to change their mind. What you like is a personal thing, and people will respect that -- even if they don't agree with you.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You've made it around the hump day of all hump days. Now that you're around the bend, so to speak, you're seeing things with a fresh perspective. All your hard work may start to seem worth it from here. You have fresh choices.
● Finances: Only tell your problems to your single friends today. To do otherwise would be like crying on the shoulder of a wealthy person about your money troubles. You don't want to appear as though you're begging, so save your sob story for those who can truly be compassionate.
● Love: If you're blind to the truth, you can't see the hullaballoo around you. And even though that kind of blissful ignorance has its place in the world, it doesn't fit well in yours. Keep your eyes open -- even if you don't say anything just yet, you know the score.
● General: Celebrating has become a bit of a foreign concept to you, and you have to make sure that comes to an end today! You now have everything at your disposal to create a special event for a group of your friends, so make it happen. If you can't get everyone together today, plan something within the month. It's been a while since you sat down together and shared details of your lives -- couldn't you use a good dose of their insight? One thing's for sure: They all could use some of yours.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: It's hard to read your colleagues today because they're all over the board. Some are up, some are down and some are just plain shell shocked. It's a good day to sit back and watch.
● Finances: It's a day to overlook misunderstandings or get mired in them forever after. That goes for everything from love to money. If it takes all the ingenuity you have to pull it off, then start getting creative. Your reputation and your entire future depend on it.
● Love: You're not interested in simplicity, at all. In fact, you never are, that's just not your nature. If you refuse to live an austere lifestyle -- and that's okay -- just don't force your crazy, complicated life on those you're romantically linked to.
● General: This is a great time to step up to a bigger role in a large group of people. You have the grace required of a good leader and you are able to stay in rhythm with everyone else. That means that today will be a fun and happy day full of harmony. Each of the power players you are working with is marching to the beat of their own drummer, but you can still keep up. You get where they are coming from. You have learned to be more flexible, and it's paying off big time.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Treat today as the first day of the rest of your life. It can either go really well or really badly, depending on what lessons you take away from the recent past. Yesterday can be a terrific guidepost.
● Finances: You're daydreaming of romance when you could have it in reality just as easily. Don't be afraid to venture out into the unknown. Dipping your big toe in the water is a good way to spend the day. Don't forget that you have a hard shell to protect you from aggressors.
● Love: If what you seek are a pint of Chunky Monkey and some bad romantic movies, go for it. It's okay to take cover in your personal space to recover from an emotional hangover. Will you ever learn? Probably not -- that's just your nature.
● General: Everything is right in front of you, waiting for you to just reach out and grab it. You are tempted to listen to the impulsive, cocky voice inside your head and go for it -- but the cautious, humble side of you is telling you to stop for a moment to review the situation more closely. What should you do? Listen to your cautious side today! Don't get caught up in the moment. Map out your plan of action. Things will go smoothly if you plan, so be patient.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: No one wants to hear about your new fiscal responsibility. You never know when you're bringing up a sore subject. Unless it impacts things like going out to lunch or who buys the doughnuts, keep your plans to yourself.
● Finances: You're tempted to jump on just about anything that glitters, but you should know by now who has the real gold inside them and who is not worth the effort. Listening to your instincts in this regard means blocking out your screams of desperation. Not having to think above the din will make things a lot clearer.
● Love: A day of hard work? That's just what you need to end the week with a bang. Leave no string untied -- complete all your tasks. It's best to go into the day with a clear conscious and a clean desk. Leave all that office baggage behind.
● General: A smart friend's advice from yesterday is still humming in your mind -- how can they see things so simply? To you, life isn't always black and white like that. While your appreciation for the gray areas of human relationships is a good thing, it may add to your confusion about your issues. So do an experiment today and try to avoid deliberation. Consider your options and then decide immediately. Find out if all the time you usually spend debating yourself is worth it.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: It's the perfect day to come up with excuses to leave your desk. If being a gofer is beneath you, then you'll miss out on a great opportunity. That special someone or plum assignment is right around the corner, so volunteer to get out of your chair.
● Finances: Relationship issues dominate your day, but luckily they're all pleasant to deal with. No amount of money could buy this kind of day. You know that things can change at any moment, but you're ready and willing to deal with anything life throws you way, and with a smile on your face. Amazing what a good start can do for a day.
● Love: You're obsessed with having fun today. But don't let that diversion totally absorb your attention. Your priorities come first and any digression could cause a serious fiasco. Stay on task for now. You'll have plenty of time for romance and mirth come quittin' time.
● General: You're going to want to watch the action from the sidelines today -- you need to avoid getting too involved in the games people are playing. Even if the main players want your insight, you don't have to share more than you're comfortable sharing. Saying too much could get you too deep. Besides, there's nothing wrong with holding onto your hard-earned knowledge. Any romance you have is easy-going right now, with low pressure situations that make you comfortable.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Old issues know no limits. That's because you're not giving them any. Draw a great, big boundary line around your office. Don't let any sentimentality or general weirdness cross over into it.
● Finances: Just being in a certain someone's presence makes you feel beautiful, and it's mutual. Basking in the glow is your current project and you're tackling it with gusto. There's nothing like taking a break from your financial goals to make you feel in harmony with life.
● Love: Under tonight's veil, anything's possible. So blow it out: Do something totally uncharacteristic. Whether it's a by-the-hour room in a seamy hotel with your favorite booty call or an off-the-cuff trip to Vegas by yourself, go nuts.
● General: An idea that seemed like a radical notion will suddenly seem totally reasonable today -- new information has come your way, and you will finally be ready to take the plunge! Dive in deep, with abandon, today, and you will be rewarded with a huge payoff. Going against your normal routine has never felt so liberating! And don't worry if you make a mistake along the way. Mistakes happen, and they usually end up being quite educational.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: In your case, having some self-control means holding back your ambition, because it's going gangbusters. You'll look foolish being dragged along by the likes of your desires and objectives, so reign them in while you're still in the driver's seat.
● Finances: When all your dreams come true at once, the result is truly shocking. Your love life is like a play and the stage is getting a bit crowded. You risk letting it all turn into a romantic comedy if you don't take action now. Pruning, it turns out, is one yet another of your hidden talents.
● Love: Create some friction -- the carnal kind. If nothing else, you ooze sexual tension. So who can resist? Force eye contact or brush up against an unsuspecting hottie. Will they care? No way -- in fact, you may end up in a major make-out session right there and then.
● General: Someone has a few new ideas that they'd like to share with you today, and you need to make the time to listen. Try to slow down your normal routine long enough to hear from the people who don't normally have enough power or influence to bend your ear. You are one of the rare people who don't judge books by their covers, so don't start now! Keep that open mind you're so famous for open, today -- especially when someone says something that rubs you the wrong way.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Bringing your own lunch has gotten dull. Turning your brown bag into a picnic or going gourmet are ways to spice things up. But you can get more bang for the buck by looking at your checkbook as an incentive. Just don't scare away your apatite.
● Finances: You have a hard time getting out of bed this morning, and not for lack of sleep, either. If nothing else, you want to loll around conjuring up thoughts of the recent past. You are expanding your mental horizons without even letting your feet touch the ground.
● Love: If you weren't so patient, one terrible kiss could ruin a whole date. But you'd never let that happen. You have the kind of chutzpah to teach them to kiss like a champ. If they don't get the hint, spell it out. Don't be afraid to communicate -- it can get you what you want.
● General: To keep your energy up and your attitude positive, join in with whatever's going on in your social scene. Connect with the people who stimulate your passions. They'll help you start really thinking about the bigger issues in your life -- and see them in a more positive light. The heavy-duty 'group-think' environment you've been stuck in may have you doubting yourself, but the future belongs to people who think for themselves. Hold on to your convictions and maintain your individuality.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You need to get that energetic bounce back in your step. Fishing for recognition is the wrong way to go. Coming up with a list of achievements and fanning your own flames of glory should get you good results.
● Finances: You're feeling good and your intuition tells you that those around you feel good, too. Money can't buy the soft glow of love you are living in. Art, music, even poetry pale compared to what's being communicated via the unspoken word. This side of you and doesn't come out often, so enjoy.
● Love: Even if you're caught in the most compromising situation -- calling your date by your ex's name or doing the walk of shame -- you'll just laugh it off. After all, your poise and audacity will knock even the nastiest critics into a fit of hysterics.
● General: The projects you've been working on have been so easy that you're starting to get a little bit complacent -- what you need is a good old-fashioned challenge! It's the quickest and most effective way to get you feeling like you're back at the top of your game. You need to climb a mountain to remind yourself of the heights you are capable of reaching. So today, add a little more ambition to your day and take on something that intimidates you. And do not be afraid to fail.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: No one in the office is in the mood to do much of anything. Whether it has to do with the past or the future is up to the individual, but all of your subliminal winds are blowing in the same direction: South.
● Finances: You don't have to be cajoled into feeling compassionate today. In fact, you have no choice in the matter. You feel for everyone who crosses your path. Some may take advantage of the state you are in, but you embrace even them, and with eyes wide open. You are ultimately the one who comes out enriched.
● Love: You can't start anything new until you clear up the past. Your initial reaction is to run and hide -- that's not healthy, though. Even you don't know what lies around the corner, so don't over-think the consequences. Life will just happen.
● General: If you are looking for a good way to spend the day, stop. Sometimes, change only comes when you stop looking for it! Don't be proactive about creating the day you want to live today -- let it all unfold around you naturally. Boring or exciting, happy or sad, this day is going to be whatever it's going to be, and you can't change that. This is a very good lesson for you -- it will teach you how to give up control a little bit and allow the world to surprise you.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: The cat's away. You'll be tempted to play with the rest of the mice, but you'll be happier if you simply find a new leader. It could even be you. In fact, you could branch out and help your colleagues stay focused on work.
● Finances: Transforming yourself to suit the person in front of you is your knee-jerk reaction, but it's really not necessary. Someone loves you exactly as you are. All you have to do is rediscover who you really are to understand what they see in you. It has nothing whatsoever to do with money.
● Love: The information in front of you face is anything but pleasant or satisfying. But you can't deal with it if you shut down and run away -- the reality is terrifying, but it won't kill you. A meltdown? Now that's another story, but even that's not fatal.
