Horoscope for Oct. 4, 2018


Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The moon is in Leo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You can’t hide your feelings from others today, which is why many of you are wearing your heart on your sleeve. This is also why romance is more emotional and you will enjoy improved relationships with women. You definitely feel protective and nurturing to children and loved ones.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Take time today to seek out solitude in beautiful surroundings, preferably with yummy food and drink. You need an escape from the busy demands of the outside world. (Gasp.) Perhaps you will cocoon at home in a pleasant, relaxing way. Sounds good.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today your conversations with others are direct and to the point, which is why you won’t waste time on superficial chitchat. You want to get down to the nitty-gritty of what’s really happening. (You are a bit influenced by your habits and past reactions today.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

It’s easy to emotionally identify with whatever you own today, which is why you might have a strong attachment for something. In turn, this is also why you will feel pleased to be surrounded by familiar objects that have meaning for you, especially meaning from your past.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today the moon is in your sign, which gives you a bit of extra good luck over all the other signs. Why not test it and ask the universe for a favor? You will also feel a greater need to belong and relate to friends and loved ones. Go do that voodoo that you do so well!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Even though the moon is hiding in your chart today, which makes you want to seek out some peace and quiet, fair Venus wants you to socialize with others and enjoy your daily surroundings. You have a choice. Of course, the sun and Mercury bring money matters to mind. Ka-ching!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You are a social sign who enjoys a company of others. Today, the placement of the moon makes you feel protective and supportive to your friends. Relations with others, especially female friends, will be easy. This is also a good day to examine your overall goals.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today the moon is at the top of your chart, which draws your attention to your public reputation and professional life. However, it also indicates that intimate or personal details about you are on public display. (Whaaat?) People are talking about you. (You’re a very private person.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are the traveler of the zodiac, and today you want to get away from all this. Therefore, if you can travel, by all means do so because you will welcome this break! If you can’t travel maybe you can be a tourist in your own city?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re never casual about money, which is why today you might feel a bit possessive about property or something that you have to share with someone else. You might also attract someone who is intense and powerful. “Hi Darth.”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today the moon is in Leo, which is 180 degrees opposite from your sign. This draws your attention to your closest relationships. Guard against knee-jerk reactions because these relationships will feel more personal and emotional today.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might have to put your needs and wants second to the needs and wants of someone else today. This doesn’t mean you’re playing the martyr game, it’s simply what is happening. No worries. “It’s a joy to labor for those you love.” Truly.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Christoph Waltz (1956) shares your birthday today. You’re energetic, enthusiastic with a great zest for life! You are also spontaneous, unpredictable. This is the perfect year to explore meditation, yoga or any discipline that will help you to get a better understanding of who you are. This is also a year of teaching and learning. What you learn this year will be crucial for your progress and success next year.
