Horoscope for 9 October, 2016

IF IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be extravagant and indulgent since you’ll sense good fortune is on your side. Resources will be drawn to you and in general relationships will improve since your enthusiasm will be infectious. Though close to home and with one close partner there may be some tensions and an unsettled mood. Don’t get cornered into fitting in where you won’t want to be. Be tactful and firm about what changes you need to put in place and keep pushing.

ARIES: Blessed with tact and diplomacy, you should soon be noticing an improvement in your social life. Your charming manner and a way of putting others at ease will be attracting all manner of compliments and intriguing invitations. Confrontations aren’t likely to work out now, so you may as well pay it cool. Just give yourself time to ponder. Be prepared to be honest with yourself and do not blame your resentments and irritations on close companions but look inside yourself for the answers.
TAURUS: Maybe you are feeling resentful because you are not given all the appreciation you might like or higher rewards for your labours. But at the end of the day you will be better pleased doing a good job for its own sake, rather than gaining success and glory in the world. At times your rather rebellious attitude towards family and close partners will unsettle the normally co-operative atmosphere, so try to fly solo when you can. Find an outlet for your original ideas.
GEMINI: Feeling confident, you will not worry about voicing your feelings and your desires. More than anything what you want is to be applauded, so you will be hamming it up madly at times, but so charmingly everyone will clap even harder. Though you will also be on the prowl. Just let yourself wander since you will not sit still, and you will not co-operate easily. Not because anyone is arguing, just that everyone else seems to be marching to a different drumbeat.
CANCER: If you can push heavier chores at work to one side for another two weeks it will help. Rather inward looking, you would like to feel more in touch with your soul. Spiritual growth will be more important to you than outer ambition or glittering acclaim for a few weeks. Maybe it is only a passing phase but you could be rather over intense, or feeling blocked and stuck. Lighten up, brighten up and keep your sense of humour handy. This too will pass.
LEO: If you do spread yourself too thin, you may come across as superficial or a dilettante. Try to pause for breath once in a while, and collect your wits. It is important at the moment for you to be well regarded for your intelligence and way with words, so you will need to acquire depth as well as breadth of knowledge. You will be highly strung, or just rather rebellious. Right reason or none you are determined to protect your independence.
VIRGO: You will fight to defend your rights and to get your due, but do not be too possessive. Flow with the bounty of the universe and it will flow back in your direction. Trying to be in control all the time can sometimes backfire, so you lose what you might have gained. Though later maybe you will be too sentimental or too sugary sweet on the surface. Try to be more honest about your feelings underneath. You will want beauty or luxury at home.
LIBRA: Everyone around should be responding well to your presence since you are so warm and outgoing. You are bringing a real breath of sunshine into rooms when you sweep in. Your constitution should feel stronger than usual. Though you will be trying to go in two opposite directions at once. One way is what you ought to do, the other is what you want to do. Following your whims will give you a guilty conscience, but being dutiful will make you feel under nurtured.
SCORPIO: Regard this as a gestation phase of a few weeks, when you plan, ponder and prepare for what is about to come nearer your birthday. Do not be discouraged by what is not working out as quickly as you expected. Nothing comes together spectacularly well at this time of the year for you. Just have patience and what you want will all come right soon. Pluto around the Moon has a habit of magnifying small situations and turning them into dramas.
SAGITTARIUS: You’ll be sorting out longer term plans for the next 12 months at the moment so bounce your ideas around and see what feedback you get. Helpful practical advice will put you on the right lines, though obviously the decision will be yours at the end of the day. Sudden events at home will keep you on your toes and rather edgy. You will get jangled if anyone crowds you or tries to cramp your style. So let yourself be free to suit yourself.
CAPRICORN: Rather proud and dignified at the moment, you are putting a good deal of emphasis on personal reputation. You will dislike more than usual being passed over for attention or praise at work. Indeed, you will want to be noticed, not made to feel just one of the crowd. You will smooch, schmooze and generally put yourself about in a thoroughly charming fashion. Mates are likely to adore your easy going ways, so you should be able to pour oil on troubled waters. scop-icon-5
AQUARIUS: Maybe you are not being very practical at the moment, making grand plans without much substance. But then you can always sort out what is workable a little later on. This is the much more exciting stage of allowing your visions to flourish. Dream big and act later. The Sun sits across at a tricky angle to the Moon now, so you will be in two minds about almost everything, not being clear whether to follow your head or your heart.
PISCES: At times it may seem a little like a battlefield as confrontations litter your way ahead. You may complain about your difficult path just now but it will only last for another two weeks and you’ll be pleased at that point that you stood your ground. For the most part, you will be keeping your feelings to yourself, refusing to let on even to your nearest and dearest what is going on. Do not be too controlling, or uptight. Ease up a little.
