Our Pledge To You


Georgia Nicols horoscopes for Oct. 8, 2017

Moon Alert

Caution: Avoid shopping or big decisions from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your efforts at efficiency and productivity might be stymied today for several reasons. For starters, it’s a Moon Alert all day, and this is classic for triggering vague confusion, lack of direction and definitely shortages! Stock up on what you need to prevent running out.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

The Moon is in your sign for most of this day; however, it is a Moon Alert, which means you feel indecisive, emotional but also creative because you can easily think outside of the box. Nevertheless, this is a poor day for important decisions or purchases for anything other than food and gas.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Relations with family members might be strained today, especially with parents and older relatives or people in authority. Just coast. Don’t make a big deal about anything. Don’t shop for your home. Only spend money on food and gas.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

A conversation with a female acquaintance might be pleasant today. Nevertheless, your interaction with siblings, relatives and neighbors could hit a brick wall. Someone might try to stop you from doing something. Don’t even try. It’s a silly, goofy day.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Watch your money today and try to limit your spending to gas, food, movie or sports tickets and that sort of thing. Don’t shop for items, and certainly avoid major purchases. People notice you today (especially bosses, parents and VIPs). Be aware of this.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Fair Venus is in your sign today, at odds with Saturn. Coupled with this, there is a Moon Alert. What does this mean? It means you want to escape and do something different, but very likely you can’t because duties and obligations or authority figures will block your way. Oy vey.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today you might be focused on shared property or issues with inheritances, taxes and debt. Actually this is a poor day to make any important decisions about money or shared resources. Don’t do it. Just keep a lid on things. Ideally, wait a week.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Relations with friends are stressed today for some reason. Someone older or more experienced might be critical of you or out of sorts. Social plans that you have with someone might be blocked. Just cope as best you can and be cooperative. Avoid major purchases.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Although relations with bosses, parents and authority figures have been pretty good lately, don’t ask for any favors today. Just focus on business as usual and do whatever it is you do to keep your boat afloat. No major purchases.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Travel restrictions or difficulties dealing with foreign countries, legal matters and anything to do with medicine or higher education might be a drag today. Actually, this is a poor day for important decisions anyhow. Just lie in the tall grass and watch the world go by.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Postpone important discussions about inheritances, shared property, taxes, debt and such because this is a poor day to make any kind of important decision. Likewise, it’s a poor day for any kind of purchase except gas, food or movie tickets or restaurants.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

It’s tough dealing with others today. Things are vague and confusing, and people are not reliable. Furthermore, if you’re doing something, you might encounter shortages or you might run out of something. Just maintain. Avoid important decisions. (Big problems don’t start big. They start small.)
