For Monday, Oct. 11, 2004. Those with birthdays today: You will opt for a low profile, often keeping to yourself. You will want to reflect more. Review your priorities. You center yourself during this private time. Some will decide to do volunteer work as well. Come next spring, you will be in a position where you can do no wrong. You start a new luck and life cycle. Knowing what you want will be primary to your success. Avoid developing an attitude. If you are single, carefully sort out your potential sweeties, as several could be emotionally unavailable. Someone very special will enter your life next spring. If you are attached, plan on more intimate time together, adding in old-fashioned dates and romance.
The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
Aries (March 21-April 19)
- *** Use your innate pickiness, which is exaggerated today, to add that precise touch to your work. Revise your thinking if need be. Tonight: Squeeze in as much work as possible.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
- *** Your creativity surges, touching all that you take on today. Do be careful -- don't be grumpy with that special someone. Tonight: Let your imagination lead.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
- ** Basics do count. You will be able to tie up some loose ends. Partners and associates could be a touch disagreeable or willful. Go with the flow, as you won't be able to change them. Tonight: You don't have to go far.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
- **** You say the right words, but unraveling confusion at work or with a daily matter might call for a troubleshooter. Don't lose your patience. Tonight: Exercise away stress.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
- ** Be precise with your finances. If a proposition seems underhanded, a bit risky or not up to snuff, walk away. Wildness could be a disaster in any form. Promise! Tonight: Pay bills.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
- ** You're in control, but don't think that everyone will bow to your every wish or whim -- quite the contrary. Tonight: As you like it.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
- ** You might be chomping at the bit to get into a project, but a little restraint and a lot of self-discipline will pay off. Tonight: Cocoon.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
- *** Aim for more of what you want. You might not be happy about a monetary situation, but you can change the status quo, if you decide to. Tonight: Forget that it's a Monday night!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
- ** Take charge, even if you might feel uncomfortable with your role. If you have a boss, working with him or her could be very difficult. Tonight: Out as late as you must be.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
- ** Your perspective could be warped, and you might not even realize it. Hop on the computer and find experts. Tonight: Relax to music, TV or some other passive entertainment.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
- *** Others want to be close to you. Scheduling time for an intimate or key one-on-one talk could cause a rift among friends. Tonight: Continue quality discussions.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
- *** Allow others to run with the ball. Running interference won't work and will back fire. Tonight: Accept an invitation out.
