General Horoscope for October 3, 2018
We may keep to ourselves today, perhaps to process the emotional intensity of recent events. But internalization gives way to outward expression as the Moon shifts from moody Cancer into dramatic Leo at 5:12 pm EDT. Luna’s dynamic square to wild Uranus pulls us through our fear of being on stage. Nevertheless, Neptune’s presence prompts worry about the unknown. Impulsively, we release our fears, share our dreams and step into the light of awareness.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
The definition of what constitutes family varies, depending upon who is asked. As far as you’re concerned today, the biggest, broadest, most inclusive one works for you. Relatives, friends, and pets are all covered by the umbrella of your welcome. The spirit of kinship is felt even toward the winged and four-footed visitors to your yard or vicinity. Empathy serves you well and can be a key to finding the opportunity for personal growth that exists in each of your interactions with others. Opening your heart widens your world.
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20
It’s no huge shock if something doesn’t go exactly as forecast today with so much unpredictability in the air. If you’ve anticipated the likely need for improvisation, you’re able to maintain a steady pace even if those around you seem a bit thrown. Use twists and turns to sharpen your aim or improve your game. It could be that once the ripples of surprise settle down a bit, you can emerge in a position that’s better than where you started. Staying light on your feet gives you the advantage you need to climb the ladder of success.
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
The time is right for climbing out from beneath a pile of paperwork today. All the math skills you can muster come in handy as you make fast work of organizing bills, receipts, and your budget. Be sure that the numbers you’re crunching are accurate now. Double-check or triple-check if that’s what it takes. Evening hours are ripe for unwinding and sharing quiet conversation with someone you know is a caring listener and a captivating communicator. Relaxation is sweeter when your desk is clear.
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22
A drifty, dreamy mood puts you in touch with the softer side of your personality and prompts you to seek out another who shares a similar outlook. Whether consciously or subconsciously, the like-minded are drawn together today. The result could be a warm chat, a step forward in friendship, or maybe even romance. But be cautious about leaping into anything complicated as your mindset is different in evening hours than when the day began. Indulge your imagination but don’t confuse illusion with reality.
Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
Delays tend to get on your last nerve today, even those that are self-created. Carelessness, forgetfulness, or procrastination have sneaky ways of catching up with you, especially when expected least. Nothing’s dished out that you can’t handle, although it’s possible that a reschedule or do-over might be necessary before mission accomplished can be declared. Confidence builds in proportion to the amount of control you assert over personal affairs. Patience is an excellent best friend.
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
Demands that come at you from all sides need to be properly prioritized today. It’s impossible for any one person to be all things to all people so don’t buy into any guilt trip being sold by someone trying to convince you otherwise. Declare independence from energy-sapping ties that bind and rightly focus your attention on the essentials that really matter to you and to those in your care. With shrewd judgement and keen intuition, unnecessary worries can be left in the dust. Pruning the excess cultivates new growth.
Libra Horoscope — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
When two camps of thought at work or within your career field are at odds, your natural inclination is to stay out of the controversy. But that might be easier said than done today. You’re capable of charming everyone involved, or of successfully serving as a mediator. Yet those may not be roles that interest you now. There’s a mischievous side of your personality that would just love to be a spoiler, but acting on that impulse could upset an entirely new applecart. Decisions, decisions. Just remember, every choice has a consequence.
Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
Take the reins when it comes to steering your career trajectory today. It’s important to get the run-up to a meeting or event correct. If preparations are treated with proper attention, it’s possible for things to proceed without a hitch later in the day or in the evening hours. Your status matters more to you than you’re willing to casually let on. The more control you assert in your public life, the greater the confidence that pulses through your interior world, too. Leonardo da Vinci wrote, “One can have no smaller or greater mastery than mastery of oneself.”
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
The powerful products of your imagination speak to others on a soulful level today. Areas where your personal objectives and current events intersect provide opportunities for creative growth and prosperity. The work involved in turning an idea into a tangible reality is worthwhile in multiple realities. Even if it’s not something that materializes all at once, the process itself can be an amazing and fruitful journey of its own. Being receptive to the unknown opens doors to new worlds.
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
Relationship dynamics left languishing in limbo may beg for attention today. There might be a matter of crystallization or closure that needs to be addressed before each party feels good about moving forward. Whether it’s a breakup, a make-up, or something in between, loose ends tend to remain that way until someone takes a constructive step toward tying them up. Thankfully, you can regain control of the situation by addressing the issue, whether it’s all about business or a complicated affair of the heart. Initiating a tough conversation is the only way to make any real progress.
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
A courageous step taken in the direction of a dream leads to plenty of hard work before generating any rewards. When your idealistic nature is stimulated, you’re willing to push forward no matter the labor involved. If there are charitable, humanitarian, or ecological benefits produced via your toils, that’s all the better in your opinion. Evening hours bring out a longing to spend special quality time with a loved one or a secret crush. The right companion inspires you to strive to be your very best.
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
Chameleon-like qualities allow you to fit in nearly anyplace you go today. However, it’s not like you’re being false. No way, no how. On the contrary, it’s the authenticity of your adaptable nature that makes you such a splendid guest, visitor, or adventurer. But as at home as you are on unfamiliar terrain and when meeting new people, it’s still imperative to be alert to red flags. Get a second opinion from a trustworthy source if you’re not sure what to make of a person, place, or thing. Clarify and verify.
