SHARE Horoscope for Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019

Moon Alert

We have the all clear to shop and do business. The moon is in Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It might be difficult dealing with bosses, parents and VIPs. Your interaction could be a downer. Bosses might be demanding, critical or discouraging. Of course, this is just a temporary influence today — don’t take it seriously or personally. Relax. You are still a secret hero.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Rules and regulations related to the law, the church, society, or a university or college could cramp your style. Perhaps a teacher or professor will rain on your parade? Whatever the case, this is temporary. By next week, you’re laughing!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You might feel a financial squeeze play with taxes, debt or your share of something. Perhaps you expected more from something that is divided? Perhaps you’re getting less from a partner or close friend? Stay on top of this.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Conversations with partners and close friends might be stilted or difficult. You might feel someone is critical of you. They might reject your suggestions or be tough to deal with. Hey, many people feel timid and cautious today.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might have to work hard but not entirely get credit for what you do. In addition, it’s hard to please bosses, parents and teachers. Oh well. Just cope as best you can and realize that everyone is in the same boat today.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Children might be an increased burden or responsibility. Plus social obligations might be more of a drag than a pleasure. (“Is there any way I can get out of this?”) Another area that might be a downer is the demands of sports or training in the arts. “It’s show time!”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

A parent or an older family member might discourage or depress you. This is because today the moon is lined up with stern Saturn and the moon represents our emotions, while Saturn is demanding and tough. “Make your bed.” “Pile that wood.” “Move that mountain.”

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It’s easy to fall into worry mode because many people are despondent, self-critical and lacking in confidence. (“I’m navel lint.”) Don’t pay attention to these feelings because they come and go. Oscar Wilde said,” We are all in the same gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

It feels like money is tight. Money is a relative thing; even rich people can feel broke. Meanwhile, some people are rich in happiness and peace of mind. Mike Todd said, “I’ve never been poor only broke. Being poor is a state of mind. Being broke is temporary.”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The moon is in your sign lined up with your ruler Saturn, which makes many people feel cautious, timid, critical and stingy. Depression is likely. On the upside, duty and orderliness will be a top priority. “Hut, two, three four!”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might prefer to work alone or behind the scenes because it appeals more. It feels better. Many of you don’t feel up to socializing with others or being in the limelight. You want to keep your head down and your powder dry.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Someone older might be critical or demanding of you. (This will go over like a lead balloon.) But what can you do? Try to avoid depressing people, even if you feel a bit down. This is the kind of day that calls for dark chocolate or pumpkin cheesecake.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Kate Winslet (1975) shares your birthday. You are imaginative, creative and individualistic. You are sometimes serious because of specific ideas and beliefs. This year you are winding up things you began nine years ago. It’s time to leave behind burdens and move to something new and lighter! Start to identify what is no longer relevant in your life. You are lightening your load to get ready for new beginnings.
