Free Daily Horoscope - October 3 2016
● General: Other people's money will cause you more stress today than your own money will. Someone's new affluence is creating some challenges in your relationship because they seem to be gloating a bit too much for your taste. But does your jealousy play any role in this? Take a step back today and be honest with yourself about what is going on. You need to be happy for others when they get a windfall, not resentful. Make sure that you're doing all you can to be magnanimous.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Health concerns, vows to get more exercise after work -- it's all part of the routine. Don't let it be. You need to come up with a fun way to get fit if you want it to stick. Do some brainstorming.
● Finances: There is no way to dissuade you from being selfish today. You're all about Aries, Aries, Aries. As long as you don't spend too much money on yourself, that kind of attention really can't hurt too much. You'll suffer a selfishness hangover tomorrow. For today, enjoy.
● Love: You're reflective today. Where are you going? Where have you been? It's a good time to take stock of your life and seek areas that scream for balance. Some shuffling of priorities will put everything back in harmony.
● General: You know that expression 'take time to stop and smell the roses'? Well today, you should not only stop and smell them -- you should pick them and then give them out one by one to everyone you love! Appreciating natural beauty will put you in close connection with the power of the universe, and give you an unbeatable feeling of being connected with the world. People are full of charm and will intoxicate you. You are in a very happy state of mind! Be with others.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You need to do some thinking if you want to have a good time. Some people need companionship in order to have fun while others are perfectly happy to be alone. Figure out which way you feel today before making any plans.
● Finances: You're torn between greed and laziness. You can no longer have it all without hard work, and yet you can't be bothered with the hard work part of the equation. Wasting a day getting yourself motivated is a time-honored tradition for those in your spot. Tomorrow is another day.
● Love: Put a little extra effort into your looks right now. Do a few more reps, consume fewer calories and get more sleep. If you're gonna be on the prowl, you might as well look your best. The first impression might be your only shot. The rest will follow.
● General: There are a lot of exciting possibilities for a new direction in your life right now -- just be extra careful not to let your guard down too early. When it comes to an enticing new opportunity, a healthy dose of skepticism is required in order to keep your head on straight. And if this new opportunity is romantically related, it's all the more important not to let yourself get swept away. It's always smart to get some advice from a good friend on how to handle new endeavors.
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: If lines are always crossed at work and now you're having a hard time communicating with family, the source of the problem should be dawning on you. Do whatever you can to be as clear as possible.
● Finances: You don't have to choose between feeling intellectual and feeling romantic. Money is the best way to tie those two feelings together. Be smart about what you spend your money on when it comes to love and you will have successfully put two and two together, at least for a day.
● Love: Where's that sex appeal been hiding? Under layers and layers of negativity, no doubt. Now that you're feeling better, get to work. Get sassy and shake your thing. If someone throws a drink in your face, you know you're on the right track.
● General: You can't always rely on your heart to steer you in the right direction if things get confusing. Think things through in a more analytical way and be prepared to change the way you go about making decisions, today. If you use your intellect rather than your emotions, you will make a wiser decision -- and you will learn something about yourself along the way. Instinct is good, but right now you need to see things add up on paper before you believe they are true.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: You need everything to sparkle. In fact, once you start cleaning up, you just can't stop. You'll get down to ever-smaller details. The only thing holding you back is another work day.
● Finances: Issues on the home front can no longer be put off. You don't have to dig into your savings just yet, though. You can still afford to patch things over with the proverbial band-aid. The bigger projects can be put on the back burner.
● Love: If you're in one of those dishing-it-out moods, make sure you're able to take it as well. Thick skin is the best armor possible. So don't walk around singing the blues if others retaliate against that razor-sharp tongue of yours.
● General: Moving slowly is starting to feel good, and you're getting the hang of listening to yourself and being more conservative with your energy. This is a real sign of progress, one that indicates you may be storing up resources before you make a dramatic return to the scene. You could make a big splash if you play things right. But first, keep focusing on privacy -- no one needs to know what you're up to if you don't want them to know. Keep your cards close to your chest until you're ready to play the game.
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You can still afford to be impulsive, at least once you memorize your list of cheap or free activities. Once you can reel off the options on no notice, you'll be going hog wild all over again. Until then, try to enjoy.
● Finances: When you're itching to take action of some kind, your instinct is to buy something new. That would be wasting both money and energy since you already have everything you need to accomplish the tasks at hand. A new computer won't help motivate you.
● Love: A newcomer to your circle of influence throws off the balance of power. Suddenly, they're getting all the attention. What happened? Wait it out. This person doesn't have enough moxie to sustain it long term. The spotlight will soon find you again.
● General: While today should be a very good day for you and your friends, it won't offer any exceptional memories or achievements. It's going to be a somewhat easy, but also somewhat difficult, day. A classic balance of positive and negative energy is controlling your world right now, so you can expect an uneventful day that offers you a little bit of everything, but not to any extreme. There will be no satisfaction if your hopes are too high. Just let the day do its thing and you'll be happy.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: When things in your own house start making no sense, you know it's time to do something about it. Getting organized is not as hard as procrastinating about it. Consider it your new project and dig in.
● Finances: There is no time to waste sitting on the fence. These are not minor setbacks you're dealing with here. If you can't get past feeling indecisive, then let your partner or mentor help you make up your mind. Whatever you do, don't lose yourself or your money to any further hesitation.
● Love: Have you ever wondered why you're still single? Maybe it's your exceedingly high standards. If you find fault and judge everything and everyone, no wonder you can't make a connection. There's a difference between compromising and being more open-minded.
● General: You are a very good listener, and you have a way of making people open up. People will be coming to you today for some advice, and this is an opportunity for you to use your keen insight to make the difference in their life. They've been stuck between guessing and knowing what they need to do next, and when you voice your opinions on their dilemmas, their answer will be clear. You won't be telling them what to do, but you will be helping them to figure it out.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: It's a good time for being around other people, and not just for fun. You'll run into someone who puts your mind at ease. Wouldn't it be great if everybody let bygones be bygones? Be the one who takes the first step.
● Finances: It doesn't feel like a particularly super day, but truth to be told, you're flirting with wild success. The beauty of it all is in the way everything is balanced just so. You can almost feel the absence of extremes. That's your biggest clue that you're on the right course.
● Love: You're struggling to open up and make connections with others today. Don't sweat it. You're better off writing about it or sharing your concerns with someone you trust implicitly. Otherwise, your secrets are bound to end up as grist for the office rumor mill.
● General: One of your friends has some very interesting news for you today, and it could affect your routine. Get ready to rearrange your schedule so that you can take advantage of some new social opportunities. Everybody wants you to be a part of this! They are in on some exciting developments and are eager to share some information that will make you eager to show off the 'new you.' Today is all about seeing things in a new light. Try something you've never done before!
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: You'd love nothing more than to do a friend a favor today, but just be sure it's something they really need. You have your own life to take care of, and being of service to others can wait until tomorrow. Be in tight control of your time.
● Finances: As soon as you reach one goal, you focus on another. The ultimate prize may seem elusive, but if you thought you had it in hand already, you wouldn't have much incentive to keep trying for more. Your subconscious goads you ever onward and upward.
● Love: Material possessions or your freedom? You decide. Do you really need the latest and greatest gadgets? Probably not. Your current phone works just fine. Spending money needlessly means wasting your life working for the man or livin' the dream.
● General: Everyone is acting like your boss today, and you might find it difficult to obey their authority -- but then again, why should you? Even if a friend is gaining a great deal of power in their life, that doesn't give them additional rights over yours. So if they start treating you like you're one of their employees, set them straight with a joke. Remind them that you don't have to do what they say -- that you're in their life voluntarily. This dose of reality will help them learn a good lesson.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Choose your company wisely today. Being alone may not be ideal, but being around others may just drive you crazy. You may end up thinking another work day can't come soon enough.
● Finances: You have to think on your feet. There is no time to prepare any answers, but on the other hand, everything up to this point has already prepared you well. You don't have to bother thinking it all out. You'll be wishing you could go another round once today's competition is over.
● Love: The problem isn't the one person you're trying to charm the pants off -- it's the entire group. Unfortunately, to get to the one, you have to woo the many. Be subtle. Your efforts may cross the line from subdued to obnoxious.
● General: You are going to be feeling a lot more than thinking today, which is fine -- but it could cause a misunderstanding if you're not smart about when you let your heart takeover. When to let your brain do the driving is an important question. Emotions magnify everyone's behavior and could cause you to assume they feel things that they don't feel. Watch yourself in flirtatious situations and make sure that you don't start seeing connections as being deeper than they really are.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: You don't have to go anywhere. The best place to be if you want to connect with others is right at home. They'll come looking for you, so be sure they know where to find you.
● Finances: Your heart and mind are in the right place, but you're just not making any money today. Some days it just flows in effortlessly, and on other days, making a dime is one of your biggest challenges. One might think you'd be used to the ups and downs by now, but they'd be wrong.
● Love: Keep your first-date venues tame right now. Save the fancy, foreign and exotic for the tried and true. You might freak someone out if you take them to your favorite S and M club for drinks. Better to stick with dinner and a PG movie for now.
● General: Your optimistic outlook has never let you down before, and it certainly won't let you down today! As long as you take care when dealing with others who aren't quite as sunny as you are, you should get just about anything you want -- from anyone you're dealing with. Seeing the bright side of life is not only useful for you, it is also very attractive. Someone you are interested in loves the fact that you always see the glass as being half full -- and they want to know your secret.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Your work day has a lot of details that need to be covered today. Start preparing while you still have the time to do it right. That means going over everything from lunches and wardrobe to things that are more substantive.
● Finances: You love the phrase 'It's all good,' but the truth is that it's not. The school of hard knocks has you feeling pretty bumped and bruised right about now. Your diploma will ultimately make you worth a bigger salary, so keep that in mind as you struggle to make it through the day.
● Love: Don't be surprised to emerge from your shell today. That shocks the heck out of someone who's been counting on you to step it up. Sure, you may get more work dumped on you in the process, but it's better for you self-esteem in the long run. When you feel great, others pay attention.
● General: Getting back in touch with a long lost friend or ex has given your self-esteem quite a boost, but be careful that you don't get swept up in the moment. If you need to slow things down, be up front about rearranging a social obligation. You have re-established a firm footing with this person, and don't fear that they will take your request as a bad sign. In fact, they'll probably be relieved that you want an honest, upfront relationship. You need some time by yourself to regroup.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: The last thing you think you want to do today is to help others, but you'll be surprised at just how good it makes you feel. You don't even have to know the payoff beforehand. Just dive right in.
● Finances: You've found the right balance between patience and impatience. You can slow yourself down long enough to do the job right, even though inside you are raring to go. Your good attitude keeps problems with business associates at bay, which in and of itself is a big improvement.
● Love: Today is a day for quick communication and witty responses. Save the face-to-face conversation for another time. You're better off getting the message across via texts and email -- Ma Bell's ancient news. Create your day around the wonders of technology.
