Free Daily Horoscope - October 7 2016
● General: Expect a few ego clashes to slow down your progress today -- and be grateful that time is not a big concern of yours right now. A drama is coming, but it will be a very entertaining one for you -- because you're not going to be a part of it. You get to sit on the sidelines, enjoying the game that other people are playing. It won't be too bloody, but it will be full of low blows and even a shocking revelation or two. Whenever people get together, the social dynamics can get complicated.
Aries (3/21 to 4/19)
● Work: Keep telling yourself everything will be fine. Whether or not it will really isn't the point at the moment. Motivating yourself to do what has to be done is. So be your own security blanket.
● Finances: Being independent is just not your style. You prefer the security of being one of the crowd. But when it comes to investing, you'd rather be a maverick than one of the sheep. The more pioneering your investments, the better. Your daring pays off big time.
● Love: Your words are weapons -- when you don't want to get close, you just open up your mouth and yak, yak, yak. Unavailable much? Don't hide behind a wall of verbiage. Instead, silence yourself. Intimacy lies in the absence of noise and the warmth of bed.
● General: In theory, it should not matter what other people think of you. But in practice, you may have to take on a certain role today in order to impress one or two important people. You need them on your side in order to accomplish what you need to accomplish. This is not a question of compromising who you are -- you should never do that. But you might need to temper your passion with a veneer of etiquette and tact. Play along to get along just this once.
Taurus (4/20 to 5/20)
● Work: You're not exactly having a good time with coworkers. Taking a day off is just not an option, though. Take care of your mental health in other ways. Take deep breaths. Repeat: There's no place like home. Click your heels.
● Finances: You don't take risks with your money. You play it safe with all things financial because you've already learned a few valuable lessons about being reckless. Falling under the spell of anything that glitters is another trap worth avoiding. Changing your strategy just won't pay off, so don't even feel tempted.
● Love: Enjoy your unattached status and savor your single life -- it's okay that you're not into a commitment right now. You have plenty of time to work out the reasons why later. For now, forget about the mushy, romantic stuff. Have fun sowing your wild oats.
● General: You have strong confidence in your ideas today, so why not take the bull by the horns and put things into motion? You need to stop waiting for that person or that money and just do what you can by yourself with what you have. When you're in phases like this, when you have an insightful intelligence and tons of energy to go with it, you can't let anything slow you down. Whatever you start today will take some time to gain traction, but when it does -- watch out!
Gemini (5/21 to 6/21)
● Work: So which are you, an intellectual or someone just out for fun? It may not have occurred to you yet, but you can be both. Enjoy your time at work, then take your thinking cap off for a wild ride home.
● Finances: Nothing you do today will make your bank balance go up. The only way to control anything financial is by controlling your emotions. Focusing on partners helps you reign in spending. It's the most intelligent use of both your time and emotional energy.
● Love: If you're sitting around, waiting for something to happen, it won't. Your lack of fortune isn't the zodiac's problem -- it's yours. You're simply not making the effort to reach out and meet new hotties. Do something simple to get out of the house today -- whatever it is, you'll connect with someone new.
● General: If any financial matters look too good to be true today, you had better look again! Don't let yourself be pressured by the suits in the room. This is your money we're talking about here, and you can't let it go without knowing exactly what's going to happen next. There is a lot of uncertainty in the air, so over the next few days you need to be careful about business deals in general. Don't be paranoid, because that will put people off. Just be sure you know what you're getting involved in.
Cancer (6/22 to 7/22)
● Work: Bumps in the road are rarely isolated. Once you notice things going less than smoothly, watch out for the next issue. And don't think you're off the hook once you hit the magic number three.
● Finances: Doing something for yourself doesn't have to entail spending money. The act of spending itself is what soothes you, not what you actually buy. Once you realize that, the entire exercise seems useless. But you will stumble upon a more valuable way to make yourself feel better. Enjoy.
● Love: Your instincts are razor sharp today, and it will do you well to pay attention to them. If your date is fidgety or quiet, walk away without any pretense. Why waste your time?
● General: You have only just started on your latest endeavor, so if you're getting frustrated about your lack of progress, don't you dare give up! Keep digging today and you could uncover the whole beautiful thing beneath the surface. Perseverance is important today. You need to prove to yourself and to others that you don't quit when the going gets tough -- you just get going! You even have permission to get excited, because this thing is going to happen!
Leo (7/23 to 8/22)
● Work: You can't communicate on the same level with coworkers that you do with your friends, but that doesn't mean what's going on with you is irrelevant. As long as it takes a back seat to getting the work done, share how you feel.
● Finances: If you think you can find romance on a day like today, then you are totally out there. And out there is where you have to go to even hope for anything resembling love or fun. Luckily for you, you're used to going out on a limb and not just for money. Go on out there and explore.
● Love: You're in the spotlight in every aspect of your life. So, it's no surprise that men and women vie for your attention. Don't be distracted by your own brilliance -- focus on picking that special person out of the crowd. You'll know it's right when your eyes lock from across the room.
● General: When someone says something that confuses you today, don't just reject their comments and walk away. The viewpoints that don't make sense to you are the ones you should try to listen to all the more -- they are the ones that have the most to teach you. Start a conversation with someone you disagree with, and you'll find out what makes them tick. Your intellectual curiosity has been starving for input for a while now, and these kinds of conversations will satisfy it.
Virgo (8/23 to 9/22)
● Work: Being impulsive is your way of coping with stress. But be professional instead. Take a few deep breaths and ask yourself the hard questions before you make even the simplest of decisions today.
● Finances: You want to say no to everything today and not just because you feel like Scrooge. Your family obligations feel like just that -- obligations. You crave something more light hearted or warm, with at least the illusion of choice. You won't let yourself off the hook, though.
● Love: Dating is much like mining for valuable ores -- you'll experience lots of fool's gold before encountering the real thing. As you skip from one psycho to another, practice your socializing skills. Even if you walk away empty-handed, you've gained invaluable dating experience.
● General: Has your wallet sprung a leak? There's some money going out and if you don't know where it's going, you had better find out. Check through recent billing statements, because there's a chance that you have overlooked or forgotten something. And while you're at it, look for areas in your life where you can trim back -- and not just monetarily. Spread out your attentions and make an effort to catch up with someone outside of your main circle of friends.
Libra (9/23 to 10/23)
● Work: You don't want just a good day, you want a super one. But do you have what it takes to make it happen? A bit of high energy and some positive attention from colleagues is also needed to make just the right cocktail.
● Finances: You can only relax and enjoy life when your financial picture looks good. Your balance is fine today, so you can focus on more satisfying feelings than anxiety. It may take some time to thaw out, and in the meantime, allow yourself no thoughts of money, not even positive ones.
● Love: Life's a bit painful right now. The sands are shifting beneath your feet. One second you're on solid ground and the next you're struggling to keep from sinking below the surface. Between work and romance, you wonder when it all settle into a comfortable routine.
● General: You underestimate your appeal to others sometimes. You have a powerful magnetic effect on many people, and today, you might pull some very insecure people toward you. They are looking at you as someone who can tell them the answers. Be careful that you do not promise them too much. Even though you might think you can help them, their lives are not yours to manage. Keep a friendly distance from people who want more from you than you are willing to give.
Scorpio (10/24 to 11/21)
● Work: Just because you're feeling introverted doesn't mean you should be passive. Make sure it's obvious there's plenty of inner activity. Thinking about hard decisions should put an appropriate scowl on your face.
● Finances: There are many benefits to having been around the block a few times. You can see through the hype, no matter how persuasive the sales pitch, for one. And you know that if something seems too good to be true, it is. You get to put both of life's lessons to good use today.
● Love: Be yourself, because when you're playing the part, you won't please anyone. Aside from being unable to control others, someone is ever critiquing your performance. Find activities that resonate with your soul. If you're not being true to yourself, misery follows.
● General: It will almost feel like you are living out one of your most unusual dreams today, when odd coincidences and funny twists of fate greet you at every new corner. So keep going around those corners! The more you move around today, the more excitement you'll get to experience! This is a great day for calling on friends or clients, visiting loved ones, or running lots of errands. Changing your surroundings frequently will keep your energy high and your attitude sunny.
Sagittarius (11/22 to 12/21)
● Work: Enthusiasm is an asset only if used properly. You love to jump right in, but that approach won't help you today. Allow yourself as much preparation time as you give yourself for working on any particular task.
● Finances: Making money comes naturally to you. Unfortunately, you don't have as much confidence in your ability to make friends. Do a bit of exploring. It should come as no surprise that you have many of the skills you need to be successful in both arenas. But it will.
● Love: Dating is about finding someone who shares similar emotional issues and baggage. If you're Type A and they're a Type B, things won't work out so well. Instead, richness and profundity are where it's at. Everything will settle when your intentions are versatile.
● General: Your recent bold behavior has gotten you noticed by a couple people lately -- and they are the people you want to get on your good side. The good news is that they are loving your brashness -- they see it as a breath of fresh air. So keep it up! Step out of your comfort zone and wield your power more forcefully. If there has ever been a time to throw your weight around, this is it. The more you push for what you want today, the sooner you will get it. Broadcast your goals.
Capricorn (12/22 to 01/19)
● Work: Your main task isn't focusing energy on work, it's focusing it on one project at a time. Finishing tasks is more important than initiating them at this point. One look at your desk should be all it takes to convince you.
● Finances: When you're called idealistic, it's just a nice way of calling you over the top. Way over the top. You want results at lightening speed because you're used to paying for the best. But today's activities have nothing to do with being quick or expensive. You'll have to learn to adjust your expectations.
● Love: You're on a quest to find Mr. or Mrs. Perfect -- but honey, it'll never happen. Once you live according to loftier ideals and values, you'll attract a better quality person. The point is to discover the underlying emotional baggage behind your ken for perfection.
● General: You may be starting to be more ambivalent about the future, especially in terms of your career. These unexpected feelings about ambition or advancement might seem like a bad omen, but they are just part of a natural growth process you're going through. You cannot always be driven and goal-oriented. Sometimes, you need to just walk down the path of life checking out the view. Besides, this period probably won't last long. You'll soon be scheming new ways to get up the ladder again.
Aquarius (1/20 to 2/18)
● Work: Branching out can only help your career. Think of everyone you meet as someone who can help you along your path, no matter how foreign they appear to you. You may learn a bit about your own culture while you're at it.
● Finances: Your emotional state seems tied to your bank balance, or so you've always thought. You get the rare moment of freedom from it today. Finding out who you really are and how you really think about money is liberating. Too bad it's fleeting. Enjoy it while it lasts.
● Love: The most unlikely person should appear on your dating radar. Even if you don't think much of this certain someone, you'll feel much differently after a first date. As a sign associated with water, include a water element in your plans for a most romantic connection.
● General: You might be in a more relaxed and passive mode right now, but that doesn't mean you should let yourself be treated like a doormat by anyone -- for any reason. If you feel like you're being taken advantage of today, stand up for yourself! Do not worry that you will come off as too aggressive if you push back when someone pushes you. If you let someone put one over on you even once, they will immediately assume that they can always push you around.
Pisces (2/19 to 3/20)
● Work: You've acquired more than a few debts in your office travels, and not of the financial variety. You owe colleagues some favors. Start settling the balance instead of wondering what they can do for you.
● Finances: Wondering what your boss would think is not strictly paranoia. You never know who may be overhearing your conversation today. Treat everything you say as if it were more valuable than money, and only share with those who are the most deserving. Being a blabbermouth could really cost you.
● Love: A fanciful breeze is blowing in your life and it's creating the most preposterous ideas in your head. Warning: Don't let crazy romantic ideas override the rationality and pragmatism that you tend to lack on a good day. Go with it, but allow the feelings to come out and play without committing too soon.
