Horoscopes for Oct. 9

For Wednesday, Oct. 9

This year a partner or close loved one can be very unpredictable. If you are single, you might not be able to stabilize a relationship in the way you would like to, as this element of surprise also affects your bonds this year. If you are attached, once you get used to your sweetie embracing more spontaneity, you could find your relationship to be quite fun.
