Horoscope

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 5). Your imagination is stirred by a new interest this month, and you’ll go into November with an unexpected new goal and agenda. The disruptions and distractions of December will be the best parts! That’s your month to embrace chaos and let it change you a little. The connection you make in January is magical. Sagittarius and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 24, 33, 4 and 19.

Mars and Uranus Get Restless. Are things better over there? It sure looks that way from over here. Mars in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries form a fiery connection that stirs up a restless energy. You might cross the road and realize that nothing is better on the other side, but at least it’s a change of scenery, and that may be just what is needed to unlock the mental chains.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a mood that happens to everyone. Jealous. Unsettling. Like nothing is right in the world and never was. That’s the mood you’ll bust through today, and it’s a victory for mankind. It’s good on the other side.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Caution is for smart people, but if you are too cautious, you’ll micromanage your movements and stumble in the process. Go with the sweeping grand gesture. You’ll land on your feet.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Your life will be like a kaleidoscope. Slide it one inch and the whole pattern changes. This is just as beautiful as the last thing — only it’s more interesting because it’s new.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When a person looks at you with a look that says, “You know, right?” and you answer with a look that says, “Yes,” that’s true friendship. Enjoy the intimacy of not having to say much.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The English novelist J.B. Priestley said, “Like its politicians and its wars, society has the teenagers it deserves.” Anything you can do to positively influence the situation will be appreciated.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Everyone says silly things once in a while, but if you can manage to say them more often, you’ll be considered a best friend of many. People need to laugh these days.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What other people know about you makes for a fine reputation. What you know about yourself makes for something else entirely: respect and esteem. You don’t need their approval to feel good on the inside.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Of course complaining is useless. If you can fix it, you will. If you can’t, there’s nothing to talk about. The simplicity of this will make your life and relationships much better.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Whose fun are you having — yours or someone else’s? Your own fun is a very specific thing. If it’s not really making you laugh — if you’re saying “that’s hilarious” but not actually laughing — it’s someone else’s fun.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your public persona is not so different from your private persona, and yet there is a barrier between the two, and you know better than to let people through until they have proved themselves.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your powers of observation will get a workout. You’ll notice things about people that you never noticed before. You’ll enjoy spaces with a new appreciation of all that went into creating them.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you know you have an advantage, you work it. But there are also many advantages you have that you are not working simply because you overlook them. Work those today, and you’ll be super-lucky.
