Horoscopes: Sunday, October 8, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Transitions have inherent difficulties. Arrivals and departures are significant. Guests should be treated just as importantly on their way out as on their way in.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Taking action is the way to move forward. Taking action consistently is the way to rise up. Move things around to support consistent action.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The tough customer is hiding a tender heart that wants to be entertained, moved, helped and cared for. It takes one to know one.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You know what makes you well taken care of, but you don't always have the energy to do it for yourself. This is not a time to shirk the self-care. From a place of plenty, you'll give more.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It's hard to be disciplined unless you really do need and want the thing. In that case, you just tell yourself what to do and then you do it - easy peasy!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want to show up strong for your loved ones. You also care about how you're being perceived, not because it changes your self-perception but because it impacts opportunities for you.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). As for that frustratingly misplaced item - there will be something good to come out of it. Losing things is an opportunity to get organized, downsize and determine what is truly important to you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Invest in your own education. There will be an immediate high that comes with learning something new. The more you know the more control over your life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You've seen everything in your neighborhood a million times. The only way to see it fresh is to do so through the eyes of an insightful new person.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Things don't have to be epic or last a long time to feel basically right. There's a sense that you were born to do something, and you'll dive in.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It does seem that quite a lot of your life is spent pleasing someone, and you'd rather not have to. However, people's pleasing people spins the globe.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you're not sure whether to stay or go, the answer is usually to go. Staying means seeing what you've already seen. Going is risky, but it's worth it.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 8). You will attain the extraordinary this solar return, though the methods you'll apply will be ordinary, daily and consistent. You'll put events on your calendar and take the necessary daily steps to move toward them. Family victories are your own. There's a spike in your earnings in November, December and January. Leo and Aries adore you. Lucky numbers: 4, 40, 1, 16 and 33.
