Horoscopes: Wednesday, October 19, 2016

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're solid. You know what's right for your life and what's not. You can and will keep the negative forces at a distance, not with anger, but with dignity.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Things are not black and white for you - or for anyone, really. That's why this will be a day in which you will choose not to judge and not to throw your attention away on negativity.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Money might not be able to buy true love or devotion or anything that's really important, but money can still solve a lot of problems. You'll solve problems with your money today.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will be offered what you wanted and deserved several months ago. You can afford to take time with your response. Also, don't rush to grant acceptance - but do accept.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's wonderful when they really get you. It's also not so bad when they don't. There's a lot of inner life that is sparked by the flint of misunderstanding. Your mind starts spinning when it's mad.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). All those small perks - you need to appreciate them. Don't compare. This is a time to home in on what's good. Keep your passion alive. Only you can set the limits to your potential.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can crush the tension in a room by just speaking. The words you use are not as important as how you use them. This talent will further your aims.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The decision seems big. You could deliberate, make your pros and cons list, call your mother, etc., but that would be pageantry. You already know what to do. You've known for a while now.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). This group you need to be a part of now has a certain rhythm to it, and you will click right in, as long as you don't hesitate or doubt yourself. "Strong and wrong": Make that your creed.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Here's how to get into this group: Listen, pay attention, figure out the needs and wants of all involved. You won't have answers, and you don't need to. Your eye contact alone is a healing balm.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The effort to be known - that's a theme today. You know who your friends are, and they'll make sure you don't forget about them. All that you have you'll put into your performance tonight.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Acquaintances on the social scene are prime sources of employment and love opportunities, if not for yourself, then for a close friend. Make a point of chatting up everyone you know.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 19). Your dreams will bloom like a microwaved- popcorn situation: Sit on the outside, listen, and count. Your good fortune will be delicious, especially when several friends are involved. There's a highlight in December and another big income boom in January. If you want to make more, you'll have to learn more. Gemini and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 2, 22, 13, and 29.
