ARIES (March 21-April 19): Not one ounce of bashfulness can stand up to your disarming ways. You know just what you want and how to get it. Achieve your financial aims or satisfy your romantic desires by hooking up with the right person at the right time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Boldly go where no man has gone before. The usual routines might be reassuring as they provide a sense of safety and security, but you may prefer to slip your tether. Be a star and set off on your own personal trek.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Search for enduring values in others. Don't waste your pennies on items that won't stand the test of time. Take time to stretch your creative mind and let yourself be swept away on a tide of imagination.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get your day organized early so you can spend some time in the park or head off to the movies. It is a good day for outdoor activities or meeting new friends, but don't take passing flirtations seriously.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Burn off excess energy in constructive ways. Rather than being defensive when caught up in touchy situations find physical activities that provide a suitable outlet. Take pleasure in competitive activities with a willing companion.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Surround yourself with an aura of peace and tranquility to attract the same from others. Hold off on making new investments or signing contracts as you may not be as shrewd about money as you think.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Anything that is confined yearns to escape. You might be too focused on business, your job or your financial success. It is time to breathe some fresh air and get out of your cage. You may be tempted to spend too much money on entertainment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): What you see is what you are going to get. You can observe that the body language matches up with the verbal message. Someone might whisper scintillating sweet nothings or convince you that he or she is totally trustworthy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A cheerful outlook and optimistic attitude makes a great first impression. You might inspire someone to make an offer, extend an invitation or break the ice. Develop a firm base of contacts that will stand the test of time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Joint resources may need careful perusal. Maybe it is time to shift funds, merge assets, or make an important decision. Don't be too eager to discard ideas and procedures that have stood the test of time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Social activities that include sports, games or exercise are right up your alley. You are more than willing to participate in any gathering that allows you to show off your competitive side and mingle at the same time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Trust your intuitions. It might seem that your ideas are unappreciated by others, but your social instincts are right on the mark. You might not receive the recognition you desire but you will know who to avoid.
IF OCTOBER 6 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Concentrate on the spiritual rather than the material during the next three to four weeks and you will be happier. The business or career projects you begin in November, however, are certain to bear fruit. Join organizations, social groups or clubs in December when your friendliness makes you a delightful companion. There is a tendency to fight against the very things that are good for you in January and February, because your ambitious nature may make you blind to pitfalls or tempt you to take shortcuts. Wait until March to make key changes, start new projects or launch plans. That is when you may receive opportunities and have your best chance to make sound decisions.
