For Wednesday, Oct. 25
Those with birthdays today: Scorpio, how you verbalize your ideas can make all the difference in what goes down this year. You will learn, if you don't know already, the power of the spoken word. Tighten your finances with an eye to greater security and stronger investments. You might want to restructure your life. Study your options. If you are single, meeting people happens easily, but watch yourself, as you could become possessive. This behavior or attitude might not help a relationship. If you are attached, you need to work on better communication and understanding. Both of you will smile more often as a result. CAPRICORN likes to hang with you.

Aries (March 21-April 19)
**** Opportunity strikes if and when you look past uproar or upset. You might want to question if reframing a situation might help. The power of perspective will become apparent. Tonight: Chill out to music.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
**** Think in terms of potential gains and growth through letting someone run with the ball. If you think this person is wrong, you might be giving him or her an opportunity to see just that. Tonight: Listen to great music.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
**** Easy does it. Honor a change of tune or decide to go in a new direction. You have a propensity to overreact, especially when overwhelmed. A financial risk is unavoidable. Listen to news that heads in your direction. Tonight: You need some time off.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
**** Investigate facts with an eye to adding to your creativity and ability to sleuth through a problem. You can find solutions if you integrate different aspects of an issue. Tonight: The wild card hits financially.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
*** Every time you come up with a brainy (or so you think) idea, an obstacle gets tossed in your path. You find others more willing to tell you no. Think positively, and you'll jump over today's hurdles. Tonight: Treat yourself.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
*** Though you might be overwhelmed by what comes down your path, you cannot put a halt to it. Listen to your intuition, especially as you might not be comfortable. Hold action until later. Tonight: Very happy.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
