Horoscopes: Sunday, October 1, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You've been more ambitious in different stages of your life, but right now you hardly know what to want. Everything comes with its own challenges.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The problem of the day will be a common one, yet it's still an opportunity for you to meet with uncommonly good help.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Part of learning a lesson is deciding how you will handle similar circumstances in the future. Look forward to the test. You're homing in on the new you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There's something you want to forget, but it's not going to go away by your just willing it so. Instead, you need a replacement thought or action to gravitate toward. That will start the change.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Young children tend to react to events as though each state of things were the only way they will be forevermore. Of course, every state is temporary.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It is foolish to make decisions based solely on logic and intellect. Feelings have real-world effects that are often more impactful than any intellectual reality.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The tendency to ruminate on an idea may very well be related to biochemistry and not in any way indicative of the actual importance or soundness of the idea.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Someone loves you deeply. Remembering this will make you feel braver, but experiencing it in real time will make you feel more powerful - much bigger than the problem at hand.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The internet is filled with wonders and horrors, often on the same page. Because you can't unsee what you've seen, it's more important than ever that you virtually play it safe.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The psychic rules apply the same as the rules of the physical world do. If you lean toward things you don't have, you'll topple. Invite life in.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're so creative that it's easy for you to construct in your fantasy life a beautiful future you'd like to participate in. But make now special.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). If the other person leaves, hangs up or in any way ends the interaction before you give the signals, don't take offense - nor should you take chase. It's a test.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 1). Your kindness will be repaid immediately by the feeling of goodness inside you, and then later there will be an interest payment you can use to cover future acts of generosity. A bonus in November: an award or the sale of something you'll hardly miss. Romantic impulses send you on a journey in January. Capricorn and Scorpio adore you. Your lucky numbers: 6, 12, 30, 44 and 27.
