Free Daily Horoscope - October 23 2016
● General: There is a lot of flirtatious energy flying around today, and you could get caught in the crossfire if you're not too careful. This could be a bad thing if you are starting a new relationship, because you really don't need the distraction when you should be concentrating on trying to get to know someone better. You need to stick with one romantic pursuit at a time! But if you're free and eager to explore new options, today will be a very exciting and productive day for you.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: If you keep your expectations low, then all your hard work pays off each and every weekend. You made it. Isn't that enough? Focusing on possessions or finance will only make you feel impatient.
● Finances: Keep your head down if you don't want to bite your tongue because words will be flying like bullets. You would be better off playing it safe. Think long and hard before saying anything having to do with money; in fact, think long and hard before even hinting.
● Love: You're generous -- almost to a fault. In fact, your magnanimity puts you in direct conflict with others. If you're sick of picking up the bills and dragging your friends around, on your dime, stop it. It's time to equal out the economic power in all your relationships.
● General: There is a lot of indecisive energy around you, and it could cause some scheduling delays. The good news is that whatever delays happen are for the best! So if you can be flexible and just go with the flow right now, you will open your life up to more spontaneity and excitement. Let things be messy and imperfect, and you'll enjoy them more. Who cares if you don't have the perfect outfit, or you're five minutes late for the movie? Trying to make things perfect is not worth the trouble.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: Just yesterday you were wondering how to make it through the day, and now you're filled with powerful energy. You already know exactly how one relates to the other. Enjoy.
● Finances: Has your spending been out of character lately? If you don't even know then the answer is definitely yes. Start writing it all down to find out exactly where you've gone off the rails. Until you're sure where your money is going, any type of budgeting is simply a waste of time.
● Love: You look like a lawyer, but your intellectual aesthetic is way more bohemian. Too bad more people don't see this aspect of your personality. You love art, poetry and literature. So why not head to a gallery opening or book signing and hang out? You'll connect with someone who draws out your inner Hemingway.
● General: Someone has been playing a totally flirtatious game with you for a while now, but don't worry if it feels like it comes to a stop today. This is not the end! They are simply reorganizing their ideas and revising their approach. They have a big surprise in store for you, so stay tuned. The tables are about to be turned and you're going to find yourself in a situation you've never been in before. It may be uncomfortable at first, but just give it time -- this is going to be an exciting experience.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: Come up with something interesting to do. It doesn't have to get the neighbors talking, but it should be out of the ordinary, at least for you. The same old, same old just won't work.
● Finances: What starts out as a great day could quickly go downhill if you let too many things get lost in the shuffle. If you don't exercise any follow through then you will go nowhere fast. As they say, the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Come up with a game plan and then stick to it.
● Love: No wonder you're feeling all uncertain and weird lately -- you're totally focused on yourself. Luckily, your secret weapon is your versatility. So, find a way to get out of self. Whether that's walking around the block or cleaning your parent's house, do it.
● General: With all the uncertainty going on in your life right now, you need the comfort of home, friends and family to keep you feeling grounded. Set aside some extended time -- a long weekend if possible -- to hunker down at home. Tell your wild side to cool it for a while and get back in touch with the simpler things in life. Your friends would love a chance to spend more time with you. Some of your relationships could use an infusion of new energy, and the timing is perfect for that now.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: If you've had crazy ideas all week about how to spend the day, then there's no better time than the present. Fantasizing is fun, but follow through is oh-so-much better.
● Finances: You can't get ahead if you continue playing it safe. You'll never upgrade if you act like a hermit crab who is afraid to come out of its shell. You'd sooner get stuck than admit you've outgrown your cozy confines. Don't let yourself get overwhelmed by the idea of it; just start by sticking one tiny toe out at a time.
● Love: Even after all these years, you're totally loyal to someone who blew your heart to bits. It's time to see this person for what they are. When you smash your delusions about their importance in your life, you'll be able to move on -- truly move on.
● General: You've been noticing some magnetism between two people in your life. An introduction is in order, and you might feel compelled to play matchmaker today. This could apply in a romantic or business context -- either way, you will end up benefiting greatly from such a union. There is the possibility for even more connections involving these two, so don't think small. Widen your view today and invite a few more folks to the game. Teamwork gets things done much faster, and you can lead the team.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: Put all thoughts of your boss or your career out of your mind first thing in the morning, if you didn't already to it last night. Today is all about your heart, not your professional reputation, and it needs a jump start.
● Finances: Making money feels like one big party. It's not just that you do it with ease, it's that you're friends with everyone along the way. It's your attitude that is unique, not the actual circumstance. People attend lectures and pay consultants to learn to do what comes naturally to you. Be sure to tip your hat to it all.
● Love: When the going gets tough, you get going. If you're experiencing any lack of dating action, nobody would know it from appearances. You just take it all in stride. When one door closes, you break out the crowbar and pry open another.
● General: Your total dedication to a current project is helping you get a lot accomplished, but devoting too much time to work will leave you without the time you need to make improvements in your love life! A potential sweetie needs to know that you are not blowing them off, so send them an email or call them today to set up a date for the future. Make sure that they know why you aren't going to be as available as you usually are. Don't make them guess.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: You may not be able to afford travel or eating in an unusual spot, but even the most ordinary of scenarios has glamour and, yes, even romance today -- as long as you're with someone compatible. Meals are especially intoxicating. Go ahead, overdo it.
● Finances: The day can go in either direction and it has not much to do with your input. All you can do is react at this point. Do your best to stay on your toes and roll with the punches, or act out any other cliche that works for you. As long as your wallet is intact at the end of the day, you'll go home happy.
● Love: What's not being said is just as important, if not more so, than what is actually articulated. So read between the lines -- interpret silence or other cues for what it is. You will answer your own questions about a certain love situation through this process.
● General: Just because someone has more experience than you do in one area doesn't mean that they know more than you do about everything! Remember your strengths, and hold your head high today. You can participate with the best of them, so jump right in. Take control. Chances are, no one is going to mind. In fact, people are eager to hear what you have to say -- your quiet nature has had people talking. They are curious about what kind of leader you will be.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: After a long work week, you're enjoying all the comforts of home. There's no such thing as overindulging, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. As long as it has nothing to do with the office, it's healthy.
● Finances: You have something new you're just dying to talk about. The rub is that you lose money every time you spill the beans. Find something else to chitchat about. Even sharing your innermost self is preferable to giving away the storybook ending. Hold your tongue as tightly as you hold your wallet.
● Love: You've heard it all your life: You have so much potential, but ... You're an underachiever and proud of it. You've long since stopped beating yourself up for not being farther along in life. Why should your romantic pursuits be any different? Ease up!
● General: Just like it only takes a minor snag in the carpet to trip you up, it will only take one minor detail to derail your plans today. But instead of turning a paranoid eye on everything you see, just be aware that little slip ups have a chance of occurring today, and try to carry on as normal. You can't make every little thing perfect, so don't waste your time trying. Just stay limber and be ready with a backup plan, should your plan A go awry. You are spry and smart enough to bob and weave.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Did you leave work like a bat out of Hades? You may have forgotten something important in your haste. This time, it's worth the dreaded trek into the office on a weekend. Grit your teeth and get it over with.
● Finances: Be careful that your ulterior motives don't get the best of you. You are always tempted to put money second and personal matters first, but that would be unprofessional of you. Don't slip anything into the fine print, either. Make sure your goals for the day are neat, clean and strictly financial.
● Love: You always know what's going on -- nothing slips by you. That's why you're focused on those dark eyes across the room. They've been fixed on you for weeks. Approach your admirer with the purest of intentions, avoiding any of your famous hidden agendas.
● General: You are known to have a very generous spirit, and today you need to extend that generosity toward how you constructively criticize people. Someone is not putting out the quality of work that they are capable of -- and it's up to you to help them understand this. Don't be too harsh about it, just say what needs to be said and give them a very generous benefit of the doubt. They need you to be honest with them, but they also need you to be careful with them.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: If you're forced to look at the small details all day long, then looking at the bigger picture of your life is a relief. There is no room in your lens for the mundane. Keep a grand perspective.
● Finances: There's really no point in getting all philosophical about your financial situation. You'll never get deep enough to reach an epiphany and you're just wasting valuable time. What you need to do is keep busy, one way or another. The rest can only fall into line if some action is taken on your part.
● Love: In your eyes, this new person is totally boss -- you're absolutely blind to any imperfections. Oh, whimsical you. You can't see the negative until you've been totally burned and then you'll still manage to find a sliver of encouragement.
● General: New projects have had been creating more havoc in your life than you expected them to, but clarity is just a matter of getting a handle on scheduling and other easy details. In a few days, your vision will start to become more vivid. Scary walls are breaking down -- and what you used to think were problems will reveal themselves to actually be some intriguing new puzzles to solve. You'll start seeing everything in a more positive light -- and start feeling very content.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: It's tempting not to forget about work once the day is over, but don't let yourself. Rejuvenation is an important part of preparing for later. And if you are busy, you'll have to remind yourself to do relax.
● Finances: Time is money and you're wasting yours. When it comes to thinking things through, you are way overboard. You reach clarity -- again and again and again. In fact, you're just muddying the waters by rehashing things again and again. Discard the extra thinking by acknowledging it for what it is: Simply another delaying tactic.
● Love: You're a hard nut to crack, but once you let someone in, you refuse to let them go. No wonder you're struggling so much with old issues right now. If someone from the past is haunting you, work it out immediately. You don't need this drain on your faculties.
● General: There is a fine line between having a healthy ego and having an inflated ego -- you know it, but someone you'll be dealing with today does not! If you are feeling charitable, you can save them from themselves by stepping in and preventing them from saying something they will regret later on. But if you're not feeling especially compassionate, feel free to let them dig their own grave. But be careful -- their demise does not necessarily mean that you will be stepping into their shoes.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: What, you're bored? Have you become just like one of your old relatives? Say it isn't so. And to make sure it's not, get off the couch and do something exciting. Make it something you'll want to brag about at the office.
● Finances: You consider yourself unique and rightly so. And yet you have an intellectual connection with someone that makes sparks fly. The two of you could make a fortune if you put your heads together. Communicate creatively and come up with a financial formula that works for you both.
● Love: When you speak the truth, you mean no harm. But sometimes, your words are construed as cold, even caustic. That's just your brand of honesty. Soften your comments with a little sugar and spice to alleviate any misunderstandings today.
● General: People will have a great curiosity for you today, and are likely to keep you talking with their nonstop questions. They want to know what you're doing now, what you're doing next and what you think about what they're doing -- it could be exhausting. You don't have to be too specific about what you are doing in your life right now -- especially if you feel it will be an invasion of your privacy. Besides, the details are a bit tedious. You could bore someone.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You know the point of love letters and soft candles: To win you over. Don't be fooled by some smoke and mirrors. Use your intuition to decide. Listen to your heart.
● Finances: Some days thinking about money just feels overwhelming. Your images of the future, which sometimes are crystal clear, simply dissolve. Be careful what you do when you're in this state of mind. Stay busy in ways that won't affect your money.
● Love: Don't be afraid to share your thoughts, especially with someone you're attracted to. The confrontation will either turn to ash or explode in an inferno. Strike while the iron's hot -- this could turn into a super smoking affair!
