Horoscopes: Saturday, October 1, 2016

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Those who think that clothing doesn't matter much will think again. What you wear when you go out will play a key role in how you feel and who you are being.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Does it seem like other people's opinions are getting heard more readily than yours? Remedy this. Speak up. Make yourself heard; it will benefit all.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You could love something just because someone else loves it, and that will turn out to be as good a reason as any. Get wrapped up in the spirit of things.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There's something complicated in your personal life that's about to get much less so. All you have to do is see the truth and notice it.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The love of your life may be a person, or it may be a fascination. Either way, this great love will hold the lion's share of your attention this weekend. Partnering with a Libra in some way will be lucky.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You don't like the feeling that someone is checking your every move. However, right now there's something nice about knowing people "have your back."

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Maybe you don't care if your efforts get noticed or not; you're acting purely to refine your character and expand your heart as you go above and beyond what is being asked of you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). This is a lucky day to make reservations, plan ahead, buy tickets and more. You'll land the best seats, the center of the meat, the prime spot for socializing with people who can help the most.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21).

Babies crawl before they walk: It's safer this way. From the hands and knees they don't have as far to fall. Do your learning in the order that strengthens and builds your skills organically.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If the clothes don't fit or the sheets no longer stay on the bed, get rid of them. But if it's a broken relationship, it's possible that can be mended with a few words. And you're in the mood to try.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). As for the weeds in the garden of your social life, these pesky creatures seem intent on causing disorder among your well-tended base. Either chalk it up to "nature" or uproot that which offends.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There may be a surprise limitation thrown your way, but this will actually prove to be an advantage. If you're stuck between a rock and a hard place, there's nowhere to go but up.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 1). You'll fly in your personal life, and float by the things that weighed you down in the past. You'll conjure up an elixir of love in 2017 and use it at will to either deepen relationships or start new ones. What you'll learn in February will keep you more lucratively employed. July brings a trophy. Aquarius and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 18, 3, 35, 48 and 27.
