Your Weekly Horoscopes Are Here: October 5 – October 12

See what the stars have in store

If you celebrate your birthday this week: 

Librans now have an entrepreneurial spirit, and won’t back down or take no for an answer.  Over the next year, too, life-changing Jupiter dramatically revamps your romantic life. Socially, you’re a natural; professionally too.  The planets boost intellectual vigour, but also bring the occasional challenge.  The old cliche about catching more flies with honey than with vinegar springs to mind.  It’s also a great time to update your image.  If any caution is needed, it will involve finances.  Thanks to spend-happy cosmos, you suddenly want everything you see – including new playmates.  
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Best Day: Saturday 6th
This week sees your career moving in the right direction. All lines of communication suddenly open, and you can look forward to busy discussions. One warning: prolonged intensity can place high demands on even the healthiest body.  Don’t overdo punishing regimes.  Another thing likely to distract: inconsiderate colleagues.  Ignore them.  
Taurus (April 21 – May 20)
Best Day:  Sunday 7th
Taureans are usually resistant to change.  Not so now.  If anyone’s venturing out in search of excitement – it’s you. Trouble is, few seem willing to share your dreams.  Perhaps they’ve been witness to your less adventurous side in the past.  Get moving and show others how passionate and daring you can really be.  
Gemini (May 21 – June 21)
Best Day:  Monday 8th
Geminis tend to give most the benefit of the doubt.  But that forgiving attitude may backfire when you discover that a friend isn’t as loyal as you thought regarding a shared secret.  You’ll survive, but this is a lesson in setting firm boundaries.  The good news: finances are sound.  Spend up, while you can.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Best Day:  Wednesday 10th
You can be so hard on yourself, Cancer – often giving out more love than you receive.  Those who love you with “conditions” are easy enough to find.  Take the next step – love those who think you remarkable.  Wake up each day happy with who you are.   It’s not all that hard.  Give it a chance and see what happens.  Love begins with yourself.
Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Best Day:  Sunday 7th
Maybe you’re surrounded by bullies. Maybe you’re dealing with pure stubbornness. Whatever the case, it seems that someone around you is behaving badly at the moment.  Don’t let them get you down.  In any case, you’re clever enough to find a way around their petulance.  Just watch those tables turn.
Virgo (August 24 – September 22)
Best Day:  Friday 5th
Should the early week bring fluster or frustration, particularly at work – maintain your ability to stay detached.  Higher-ups are watching how the situation unfolds.  Rise above petty conflicts, and you’ll soon rise over colleagues.  By week’s end, calm returns – along with a soaring sense of self-worth.  Perhaps an increase in cash flow, too.  
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Best Day:  Monday 8th
Short term projects catch your interest. You’re focused, but only with limited patience – which could lead to some frustrating moments.  Don’t be in such a rush, Libra.  Give dreams enough busy hours to become a reality.  In matters of the heart, singles may literally bump into someone special.  Couples reignite the spark.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Best Day:  Tuesday 9th

This week, diversity rules.  When so enthusiastic – trying to relax would be a waste of time. Love, friendships, business – they all fight for centre stage. The power of the word becomes inspirational, so if you have a tale to tell – start blogging! You’re surrounded by encouragement. It’s also a great time to let others know how much you love them.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Best Day:  Thursday 11th
For once, the world seems to be in tune with you.  Good news, indeed.  Instead of having to worry about pleasing others, you’ve more time to please yourself. It’s also the start of revived ambitions, when you feel keen to break open padlocked dreams.  Cash flow is replenished too.  Whatever happens, this week life should be anything but dull.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) 
Best Day: Tuesday 9th
If there’s one thing you know, it’s that you can survive – despite on-going dramas. Not surprising, really; even when times get tough, Capricorns maintain their equilibrium. This will work to your advantage just now. As early as the 8th, startled competitors are caught off-guard as you stride ahead. It’s a work hard, play hard kind of week.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
Best Day:  Friday 6th
The planets are misbehaving and as they flagrantly disrupt the cosmic flow, an unusual set of events is set in motion. Call it a happy accident, call it synchronicity – whatever the reason, this week you’re blessed with good fortune both at work and play. At the very least, you’ll realise when you’re on to a good thing.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Best Day:  Sunday 7th
Don’t let your talents go to waste by allowing others to hijack your hard work. At the same time, expect a crash course in relationships, the main lesson being a realistic view towards others. Impractical hopes tend to come tumbling down when placed on too high a pedestal. And if a particular love is unsalvageable, perhaps it’s time to go solo.
