HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Oct. 11, 2018:
This year you open up to new possibilities and ways of managing your life, especially with regard to your finances. You will feel more secure than in recent years. If you are single, your charm emanates and draws many people toward you. You have choices to make, especially as winter approaches. If you are attached, communication with your sweetie improves and intensifies. You will find your daily life as a couple to be more vital. SCORPIO has strong opinions; listening does not mean you agree.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
One-on-one relating takes you down a colorful path. An authority figure could surprise you with his or her attitude. If you cannot work within this person's parameters, walk away. Relate directly to a loved one, and you'll be pleased with the outcome. Tonight: All smiles.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Don't take a stand, even if you're inclined to. Stay out of others' whirlwinds and issues. You will know when to reconnect on a deeper level. Let those around you know that you have confidence in them and in their choices through your actions. Tonight: Accept an invitation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Focus your energy where it counts. You will see a situation differently once you have completed the necessary work to wrap up a project. Share your perspective more openly at this point. You will get the respect you desire and need. Tonight: Put up your feet and relax.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Express your emotional creativity. Others note how different your ideas are. Someone of interest might decide to come toward you in order to get to know you. You will find out what happens by being authentic. Honor your integrity. Tonight: Time to let your hair down.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Understand what is happening around a domestic matter and a piece of property. Realize that your priorities might need revising. Do not fight the inevitable; instead, flow with it. Look to making changes at a later date. Tonight: Remain positive, and say "yes" to a fun get-together.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.22)
Reach out to someone you care about. This person seems to remain responsive no matter what you do! Do not push or test your limits, as a reversal could be close to impossible to enact at the present point. Let others know how much their loyalty means to you. Tonight: Out late.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Act rather than speculate, except when dealing with money ventures. The risk might not be worth it. You could be questioning how to best deal with a difficult roommate or family member. This situation is not new, yet you might want to try a new approach. Tonight: Give 100 percent.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You want to get to the bottom of a problem. Others might be reluctant to give you more information, yet you will accept nothing less. Understand that someone's priorities might influence which facts he or she chooses to relay. Share news. Tonight: Think "weekend."
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Back out of a problem, or decide to be mum about it for now. You need to look at the issue at hand from several different perspectives before making a final judgment call. You will like what you see. Use the gift of time to your advantage. Tonight: Get some extra R and R.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You can't count on others' reactions to be what you want them to be. You can count only on yourself and your own responses. Do not create a hassle where one doesn't exist. Examine your possibilities more openly. Detach from a heated situation. Tonight: Where your friends are.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You carry additional responsibilities, but not because you want to. Much seems to fall on your plate because others know you will follow through. Consider using the word "no" more often. Be willing to be slightly less responsible once in a while. Tonight: A must appearance.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Reach out to an expert to get feedback, rather than brainstorm with a friend who is more likely to agree with you. You will get more dynamic input and have an opportunity to see an option that might not be readily visible. Tonight: Make weekend plans with loved ones.
