Horoscopes: Sunday, October 2, 2016

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If there's a logic to your heart's attractions, you haven't found it yet. Just when you think you know what you like, you get drawn in by someone who doesn't fit the type. What a lovely surprise.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). When you pump another person up, you pump yourself up, too. That's what you'll be teaching the others today. To be able to support another - that, by definition, means you're strong.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). One theory is "Don't look back." That theory is dependent on the fact that you're still going forward, logically, optimistically, automatically, perhaps. Onward.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You may wonder if the choice you made was the best of all. It certainly was the best of the options presented or understood by you at the time. Best of all, though? Perhaps more research is necessary.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The one who criticizes you about one little thing is probably striking out at something deeper. This is annoying if it rings true. But it could be transformative.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A few hours to yourself is a curse to some, a luxury to others, and to many a daily occurrence. Your solitary hours will

define what you're about lately.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may struggle with deciding what is significant and what isn't important enough to dwell on. Once you get a firm understanding of this, success is yours.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You know that a team is only as good as its weakest link, and you feel compelled to give that link a yank to test its limits. You might find out that the weakest link isn't the one you thought it was.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It's crucial to keep your mind open to the ways you can be kinder, fairer and more useful, as these are the states of being that will lead to your happiness and mental freedom.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As methodical as you usually are, there are times when your "method" involves a chaotic attack - a flurry of random, frustrated action in which you slam around obstacles until something breaks loose. Most effective!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There are so many reasons to include more people on your journey. Also, succeeding alone won't be nearly as interesting as succeeding together.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There's a part of you that cannot be reached except through your own creativity. That is why the habit of doing creative work will sustain you in a way that no other habit can.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 2). Now you're less sure who you are but very excited about who you're becoming. Plenty of support shows up for you, too: You've many kindred spirits. November shakes up your routine. Take a professional risk in January. You'll be making money from new sources in March. Leo and Scorpio adore you. Lucky numbers: 4, 10, 28, 30 and 16.
