Horoscopes: Friday, September 15, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). All your prophecies will not be self-fulfilling. But the more you think something, the more power you give it, and that goes double for today, so focus yourself.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Thought for the evening: You can't make anyone feel a certain way, but you can certainly be the wind that blows the sails toward that emotional destination.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There will be a change in your team. This is not for better or worse, but it's a change that everyone will have to get used to if you're to continue as a group.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You don't have to be an experienced cook to know a recipe for trouble. Two or more incendiary elements are all that's needed. The real question here: What is your tolerance for trouble?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). While it's true that all good things must come to an end, so must bad things, mediocre things, even dreadfully boring things. You're getting better at keeping faith that there's better to come.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). A string of good moods lifts you through the weekend as though your heart really did have wings. Still, the influence of a certain special person doesn't hurt.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You learn a lot about people because you don't make assumptions about what's going on with them. Your listening skills are all you need to deepen a connection and create understanding.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You look so good dealing with a less-than-ideal situation that it makes you appear much more competent and attractive than someone who doesn't have as many hassles you do.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Relaxed and playful - that's the way to be. There's hardly a single thing today at work or in your personal life that warrants a stressed-out response.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). What's hard for you is easy for another. What's hard for another is easy for you. So exchange work, and help each other out, why don't you? Great things will come of it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You can't change them, but you can change you - and oddly, that will inspire just the outcome you were hoping for. So go on and boldly do what you would if they didn't even exist.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Just because a person possesses something doesn't mean he or she feels good about it, appreciates it, or is confident in it. Remember that appearances are often carefully constructed.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 15). You'll be awarded, and rightly so: You've grown stronger, better at what you do, and certain enough of yourself to weather the very wind that would have ruffled your feathers long ago. Because of this, you can let down your defenses and accept new love, challenge, and more with a lighter, abler attitude. Capricorn and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 7, 13, 30, 48, and 19.
