THURSDAY OCTOBER 12, 2017
ARIES March 21-April 20 **
Frustration will be high and patience will be low, so pace yourself Rams. If you try to push projects – and people – to work to your speedy timetable, then you’ll encounter roadblocks at every turn.
TAURUS April 21-May 21 ***
Expect intense communication with others, as the planetary patterns trigger emotional outbursts and power games. If you can keep your stubborn side under control, then you’ll manage just fine.
GEMINI May 22-June 21 ***
Many people will be on the defensive but if you avoid mentioning sex and money you should get through the day OK! Look for creative ways to make money doing something you love.
CANCER June 22-July 23 ***
With touchy Moon/Pluto aspects, today could go one of two ways. Domestic dramas of epic proportions. Or intense encounters with others that take relationships to deeper and more satisfying levels.
LEO July 24-Aug 23 **
It’s a day for focused study and intense conversations. Keep your jealous/possessive streak in check though Lions. Sharing the affection around doesn’t mean there’s less love available for you.
VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23 ***
You’re fixated on something and won’t rest until it’s resolved. By all means be thorough and determined about finding a solution, but avoid getting drawn into power games and ego clashes.
LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23 ***
There’s a heavy feeling in the air today, as family or friends get caught up in power plays. Lighten the atmosphere with your natural talent for peace-making and smoothing troubled waters.
SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22 **
Strategic Scorpios are born organisers. In fact some brave souls call you control freaks! Today, aim to relinquish control and let someone else be boss otherwise you’ll run out of steam – and friends.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21 **
Bossy demands will attract negative reactions from others. Instead, tune into the powerful planetary energy as you patch up personal problems, and deal with disagreements in a thoughtful way.
CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20 ***
It’s not your Capricorn right to control everything – and everyone – around you. Today you’ll discover that true serenity lies in accepting others as they are, rather than trying to change them.
AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 19 ***
The stars favour getting involved in charitable work with a global reach, or lending a hand to someone closer to home. Don’t accept things at face value today Aquarius – look a lot deeper.
PISCES Feb 20-March 20 ***
Loved ones or work colleagues will be extra demanding but don’t play the Piscean doormat and let them walk all over you. The way to balance conflicting needs is to aim for a fair deal for everyone.
Encounters with others can be positive or negative, depending on your attitude.
Born on the zodiac’s Day of the Grand Gesture, you love to stand out in the crowd. October and November are the best months to fall in love or organise social events.
