SHARE Georgia Nicols horoscopes for Oct. 7, 2016

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions from 1:15 a.m. until 4 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you might have to account for yourself when dealing with others. If everything is cool, this won’t be a big deal. If you have been slacking off, then you have to pay the price and promise to be better in the future. Groan.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Power struggles with someone at work might arise today. They might especially deal with some area that you have overlooked. This is the classic day for machinery to break down. It’s as if your previous actions are being tested. Time to shape up!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Power struggles with your kids are likely today. Since this will bode well for no one, back off and wait for another day when things are more mellow. Likewise, lovers might get into a quarrel today, which is really a power struggle. Don’t even go there.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a poor day to have a power struggle with a parent or someone in a position of authority at home or within your family. Family and domestic matters are going to be a big deal this year because you can improve your home scene. Don’t mess things up today.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Steer clear of arguments with others today because you might come on like PowerPoint on steroids and lose more points than you gain. Don’t worry. This is happening to everyone today. That’s because the Sun is square with big daddy Pluto. Ego, ego, ego! All is a power struggle.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Something to do with financial reporting or your cash flow will cause problems today. If you need to greenlight something, instead someone will say, “Talk to the hand.” Or they might demand an accounting of what has happened? Eeeek!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today you will encounter powerful pressure that might force you to change your ways, especially if your past pattern of behavior was not quite up to snuff. You might be called into account for work that you did or didn’t do. Perhaps you are blamed or perhaps you are vindicated.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Avoid arguments with others today because they will only make things worse. People are fault finding and on a power trip. (This might include you.) Your best option is to work alone or behind the scenes and avoid all this drama and investigation about who to blame.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Keep an eye on your money scene today because someone might confront you about finances, cash flow or something that you own. If possible, postpone these discussions. This is a poor day for any kind of confrontation because people are on a power trip. Aagghh!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Avoid important discussions with bosses and parents today. Don’t even go there. Someone will point the finger at something and you will cringe. If there’s something important you have to mention, wait for another day. In the meantime, grab a latte and hide somewhere.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Avoid controversial subjects like religion, politics and race today because they will get out of hand and become nasty. Possibly even violent. People are not looking for solutions today, instead, they’re looking for a scapegoat or someone to blame.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a poor day to discuss inheritances and shared property; including taxes and debt. You will not make headway in these discussions. Instead, you will only create problems for yourself and others. Therefore, wait for another day to do this. Be smart.

If Your Birthday Is Today

TV personality Simon Cowell (1959) shares your birthday today. You are tidy, careful and detail-oriented. You charm others when you wish. You are intelligent and witty and philosophical. Great news! You are now heading into one of the most powerful years of your life, a time of accumulation. Whatever you have done in the past will now ripen because it’s your time of fruition. (This is a good year to buy and sell.)
