Free Daily Horoscope - October 21 2016
● General: Money can only improve your life so much -- and unfortunately, you won't be able to use it to solve your problems today. Only your patience will help you get through any uncomfortable situations that you might find yourself in. But the good news is that you get to hold onto more of your hard-earned cash! So wear your comfortable shoes in case you need to stand in a long line, and bring along a book or magazine so you can occupy your time effectively.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: You're suddenly eager and enthusiastic about work all over again. In other words, the end is in sight -- if only temporarily. Use your newfound burst of energy to recommit to the project.
● Finances: Low funds are just another obstacle to overcome as far as you're concerned. You have the patience required to keep on keeping on with only a hint of better times to come. Your agreeable nature just can't be bought or sold on the open market, but of all your possessions, it's the most valuable.
● Love: You're overly concerned with your own physical gratification and personal progress -- that's just the way it is. But even you can sense whether you're entering dangerous waters. So if your actions will undoubtedly hurt another person, take the high road.
● General: When was the last time you flirted up a storm? You know, did some of that non-subtle, sparkly-eyed flirting that involves cheesy-yet-charming lines and good, clean compliments? There is nothing wrong with making someone else feel good, especially because it will end up making you feel good too! And nothing serious has to come of it, so don't worry about leading someone on. Make someone's day today and remind yourself that life is supposed to be fun!
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You like to take your time, but even you can't help but feel the rush of wind pushing at your back. Why resist it? Make the most of the added momentum and race through whatever's on your desk.
● Finances: You don't have an intense amount of energy but put another way, you're facing the day feeling good. You have all that you need to be happy and the luxuries of life are not on the list. Decadence doesn't appeal to you anyway. Enjoy a low-key day indulging in simple pleasures.
● Love: Thank the stars you're so darn dependable. That's what draws everyone toward you -- but for once in your life, stop being the savior. Allow yourself a taste of irresponsibility for once. You'll definitely meet someone who compliments your personality when you cut loose.
● General: A new person in your life is sparking some questions in your mind -- where are you going? How soon do you need to get there? Answers won't come easy, but then again, why should they? If they do, you're probably just telling yourself what society expects of you. So just let these questions simmer for a while and don't put too much pressure on yourself to find an answer right now. Sooner or later you will come to some conclusions. Just relax and trust yourself.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: You're filled with hopes and wishes. Did it ever cross your mind that your colleagues are, too? Staying professional means keeping mum, at least during office hours.
● Finances: Being single-minded is a good way to accomplish your goals, but it can be an obstacle to seeing anything outside your blind zone. Unfortunately, that includes some important relationships. Take the day to focus all of your intense concentration on things not having to do with money.
● Love: You're sweet as pie -- until things stop going your way. Then come out the lies, the judgments and the crazy indictments, even if nothing is really going on. Someone you're romantically linked to is liable to get caught in the crossfire, so be careful where you aim your ire.
● General: You're feeling bright and hopeful today, so you can't let anything or anyone put a damper on your positive attitude! Avoid situations where you'll be forced to argue or even disagree with others. When you think good things will happen, they are more likely to happen -- the universe can get the hint when you project positive energy out into the world. Soon, you can expect a good opportunity to come your way, so get ready to get busy on a project that could bring you more money.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Your mind is going a mile a minute. Unfortunately, it still can't outrun your tongue. It will be almost impossible to think before you speak today, so cut problems off at the pass by staying at your desk.
● Finances: Your domestic life just got a whole lot more interesting. It's your attitude about it that has changed, not your circumstances. Things are suddenly exciting and fun, not dull and ho-hum. Your leaky little rowboat is now a pirate ship or a cruise liner and you're the captain. Enjoy a little drama in your life.
● Love: As far as you're concerned, everyone else has what you want. If only you worked harder, you could get there. So not true. Remember, nothing is ever as wonderful as it appears on the surface. Follow your own cadence; forget about the Joneses.
● General: It's a good thing that you look so fabulous in black, because you'll be asked to play the role of judge in a tricky situation today. In order to fulfill this responsibility correctly, you need to stay objective and ask everyone involved to stick to the facts. You have the authority, so use it. And don't worry if emotions creep into your thinking -- you're only human if you feel compassion for someone. Just don't let it sway your decision. You are the one who holds all the power today.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: The lessons you've been learning lately haven't been much fun. Don't let that make you feel jaded or halfhearted. You don't have to have a good time with everything. Focus on the things about work you enjoy.
● Finances: If being told to finish what you start is finally getting old, then it may be time to heed the advice. You're putting your heart and soul into projects that are never completed. The money can't flow to you if it's constantly getting stuck by the dams you yourself are putting in its path. You are making yourself take the wrong kind of bath.
● Love: When you're trying to get attention, you're not being yourself. Though you're fulfilling your short-term emotional needs, nobody sees the real you. It's hard to maintain the facade, so if you're looking for a deep emotional connection, get real. Stop with the charades.
● General: It's not a good idea to start making any travel plans today. There is a high degree of uncertainty with one element of your trip, and you need to wait for some more information before you sign any paperwork or make any financial commitments. While you are waiting, make any arrangements necessary to take care of things while you are away. Who's going to water the plants and walk the dog? Ask around: A friend would love to have a place to stay for a while.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Put problems with colleagues into perspective. Taking a paperclip off of your desk is one thing, and going through your desk drawers or poaching your work is another. Figure out what you're dealing with before getting combative.
● Finances: You are letting your thoughts lead the way along a winding path. You're quite the philosopher, at least for a day. Try to leave some intellectual breadcrumbs along the way, because one of your ideas may actually be the big one. It would be a shame to mistake it for just another roadside attraction.
● Love: Today's just a great day for you in general, so don't put too many expectations on it. As activities and invitations come up, see how they fit into your scheme. Strive to meet as many people as possible. If that means going out on your own, do it.
● General: If a challenge in your work environment has left you feeling frustrated lately, you will be able to turn things around today. All signs are pointing to a very commanding energy being around you today, and it should give you the guts you need to straighten out the situation. You'll be able to start a conversation with someone who usually intimidates you -- and be able to get them to give you what you need. It's time to bring more aggressiveness into your life.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: Some days, work is strictly about the bottom line. Others, it's completely about relationships. Today requires just the right combination of both. Throw in a pinch of gravitas, and you're golden.
● Finances: Cooperation comes easily if you choose the right companions for the day. If not, you need a referee and don't hesitate to call one in. Making the right decisions makes or breaks your day, and is obviously your first and most important order of business. Spend as much time on it as you would any other investment.
● Love: Yep, you truly have a profound effect on others. When it comes to your relationships (or lack thereof) people either absolutely adore you or totally hate your guts -- no middle ground. Same goes for romance: No wonder the sparks are flying.
● General: Don't shy away from a friendly conflict with someone else today -- a debate will give you a heady rush of excitement and adrenaline, and you need that! This hot energy will go a long way toward helping you get the best of your opponent in a graceful and clever manner. But be gentle when you win this argument. Try not to rub their face in the fact that you were right and they were wrong. Keep in mind that you might end up being wrong, next time.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Avoiding conflict with a certain colleague hasn't been easy. The secret is to realize you're more alike than you are different. In fact, it's as if the two of you are the only ones in the office from the same planet. Ponder that one today.
● Finances: Everyone gets to be greedy every now and then and today is your day. Your budget dictates how far you can go with it so you don't have to worry about taking it too far. In fact, your self-indulgence might not even be noticed by others and the chances of wreaking havoc are minimal. Enjoy.
● Love: You're a champion holder of grudges and a triumphant bearer of resentments. Long after everyone has forgotten about the transgression, you're still chewing that toxic emotional cud. Spit it out the vitriol already -- it's eating you up alive.
● General: Be of service to someone who needs a hand. Today it's not about figuring out what other people can do to make you happy. It's not even about figuring out what you can do to make yourself happy. It's all about figuring out what you can do to help someone else! Send a sad friend into giggle fits, loan a strapped coworker some cash, or just surrender a rock star parking space to a haggard looking mom. Doing something nice for someone else will help you feel good about yourself in a whole new way.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: You can plod through your work day or you can have fun with it. Your product is the same at the end of the day. The only thing different is you. You might as well get creative.
● Finances: You love nothing more than puttering around dealing with the mundane and there's just not enough time in your life to get your fill of it. You get at least one day's worth, though, so enjoy it while you can. It's the kind of activity that brings you some money in a roundabout way, so don't waste a minute of it feeling unproductive or guilty.
● Love: Your optimistic outlook on life will attract nothing but great things right now. Even in the face of adversity, you come out ahead. In fact, nothing -- not even a complete and total blow off from a date -- can hamper your great spirit.
● General: You need to be thorough today, which means that if you are going on a date, interviewing someone for a job or even just getting to know someone new, you need to ask lots of questions! Each answer you get will lead you toward uncovering something fascinating about another person, and that's always the magic ingredient to a wonderful day. You've got great curiosity about what makes other people tick, so why not feed it? Ask what you're usually too shy to ask (as long as it's not inappropriate).
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You're tempted to say, what, me worried? Unless you have jug ears and a gap in your teeth, you'd better start sweating. For the sake of job security, there's no more putting off certain tasks. Get cracking.
● Finances: Integrity is one of life's necessities as far as you're concerned. You could no more go without it than go without food or shelter. Other people don't share your list of the basics. When they can't be avoided, treat them with the utmost caution. Keeping them at arm's length is wise.
● Love: There's one way of doing something: yours. And you're not one to give credence to the ideas of others. After all, your plans almost always work out. But give someone else a chance to test the waters. You never know -- you may end up with a new slant.
● General: It's great to have one or two special people in your life who you love to spend all of your free time with, but today you should consider expanding your social circle to include some additional people. Of course, you could never get bored with these wonderful few best friends, but that's not the point -- unless you get more diversity in your group of friends, you run the risk of losing perspective. Reach out to one or two people you haven't seen in a while and make a date to reconnect.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: You can smell freedom. But it will be that much sweeter if you get as much done today as you can. Don't let being over the hump let you feel off the hook, even for a minute.
● Finances: Whoever said if you're bored then you're boring didn't know your old relatives. Peculiar or eccentric would bring some welcome relief. Let your mind wander and you may discover a way to improve an investment or start a new project. You never know what gems are waiting in your rich interior.
● Love: You're a progressive thinker and you're into the latest and greatest thing before anyone ever hears about it. Take a few pals and introduce them to the newest hot spot tonight. Tonight will be a fun night and you're feeling all right!
● General: Your usual, everyday emails, text messages or voice mails are not going to be good enough today if you really want to stay in the social loop with your friends. Today calls for more creative types of communication -- featuring your special brand of flair. Express yourself by writing a poem, whipping up a song, or breaking out into a modern dance -- do whatever it takes to get yourself noticed by the people who care about you the most. Give them a smile!
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: Taking on something new has you bewildered and confused. You'd almost rather stick to what's known but that means never getting further down your career path. Trust that you can get yourself out of the maze.
● Finances: Just because you can make a good dinner doesn't mean you would make a good chef. And enjoying beautiful words does not a poet make. Finding your calling remains your most important job. But indulging in your simple pleasures certainly can't hurt. Enjoy.
● Love: Your intuition is always right on the money -- don't start questioning it now. Serendipity brings some interesting momentum into your life, but it'll come from left field. Just don't over think it. Allow this good energy to work for you, not against you.
