General Horoscope for October 6, 2018
There is little time to rest as the efficient Virgo Moon requires us to finish up incomplete tasks. We might worry that we missed the boat now that Venus is in the first full day of her six-week retrograde. Thankfully, we can still make relationship progress, yet it will be slow. Our money won’t disappear, though we may need to be more cautious with our budgets. The Moon’s opposition to ephemeral Neptune warns us not to fall victim to our fantasies.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
That impatience you are experiencing could be interfering with your ability to complete a job as swiftly as you wish. It’s a story familiar to you as a fast-moving Aries. Getting one, two, or three steps ahead of yourself causes the need for a backtrack or do-over. Better to tap into the enriching flow of calm, earthy energy stirred by today’s methodical Virgo Moon. Enthusiasm and efficiency are the goals. Persistence is the battering ram.
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20
If you need to play the long game to get your message across, that’s okay with you. You’re fully capable of doing so. Those who easily give up will swiftly disappear from the competitive field, but you’ve got staying power for days. You can use your passion to help achieve your lucrative and healthy objectives when you’re fired-up about what you wish to communicate. But win, lose, or draw, you’re a formidable opponent determined to hang in there until the end buzzer sounds.
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
There’s a fine line separating alert from hyper-reactive. Being ready to play whatever hand you’re dealt to its maximum positive capacity is admirable. Uncannily keen intuition allows you to get your timing right with each move you make now. Others will stand back and be amazed as you work the magic that comes naturally to you. In whatever form your talent takes, it’s mystical or practical today — or maybe a little of both.
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22
Giving another person increased freedom to evolve simultaneously frees you to do the same. If you dearly wish for more room to maneuver, try granting space to someone else or letting go of unproductive worries over something outside your own control. The positivity of the energy stirred opens leeway to pursue your own personal interests and self-determined goals. There’s no need to micro-manage what the soul naturally handles with efficiency, ease, and grace.
Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
Knowing exactly what real-world basics are accessible to you is empowering, especially when making decisions about the expenses of everyday life. The Virgo Moon in your 2nd House of Possessions inspires the urge to take stock of tools and resources that you have on hand. There are all sorts of very sensible reasons why this reassessment is a good idea. Top among these might be the confidence this kind of take-charge action inspires. It’s inventory time if you’re willing to do the work.
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
Your mode of operation is based on solid facts and perfected through painstaking trial and error. Yet there’s that one colleague, neighbor, or friend who refuses to acknowledge the wisdom of your ways. Jumping off the endless merry-go-round of bickering is a viable option when this kind of closemindedness is encountered. Instead of getting stuck, let the evidence of your excellent results speak for themselves and continue moving forward. To each her own.
Libra Horoscope — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
A quiet mood may be the ideal time to look within at sentimental feelings and creative inspirations. Private sources of happiness and pleasant memories can be comforting and identity-affirming to explore now. Sometimes it’s the most juicy, mischievous, or hush-hush bits of our past experiences that sparkle most brightly as personal treasures. A stroll down Memory Lane is a perfect way to catch-up with the authenticity of the unique creature that is you.
Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
The more vigorously another pursues a direct answer about an invitation or proposal today, the more mysterious you might instinctively become. You’re not playing games. There’s simply a part of you that craves keeping options open for as long as possible. Whether it’s about a job, a relationship, or an outing, once a firm decision is made you can plan and build with greater assurance. When that choice emerges from deep in your heart, your certainty overflows with confidence.
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
Clarity is elusive when you need it most today. If things seem blurry, it could be that the lens you are peering through is not suited to the task at hand or some dust may have accumulated. Take the time to thoroughly cleanse your perspective through meditation, wise counsel, or a good old-fashioned heart-to-heart. Once the correct focus is achieved, you’ll know it. The crystal vision that materializes will be as informative as you need it to be. Preparation is key if you wish to see your future with an objective eye.
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
The satisfaction of maintaining the yard, mopping the floor, or some other monotonous but necessary task can provide time to yourself that you rightly prize. What looks like tough or thankless work to an outside observer might be high on your list of therapeutic activities today. You know better than most that the soul can be found in these everyday jobs. In the words of Oscar Wilde, “There are moments when art attains almost the dignity of manual labor.” Make magic of the mundane.
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
Any appearances to the contrary aside, you are in no way stuck in place. You are simply super choosy about where you decide to stand today. Once your mind is set, only a giant reason will warrant a change in position. A lot of your decision-making understandably revolves around efficiency and convenience, and there are endless good arguments in favor of those. If it makes more sense to hold the fort than to charge ahead, that’s the program you’re almost certain to go with now. Logic is king.
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
Expectations are less cumbersome once freed from weighty anchors like “happily ever after.” Liberated from that kind of rose-colored fantasy, the juicy reality of perfectly imperfect love can be invited, welcomed, and fully appreciated. Sure, it’s nice to get away from it all and escape into the world of pure romance. But it’s a connection that endures through grouchy moods and real-world worries that seems like the sexiest ideal today. Having someone who adores you, warts and all, is the sweetest love of all.
