Sun-Mercury Conjunction Clears Communication
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 and make quick work of it.
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, this is the way of every person. 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 there are no interesting people who haven't experienced risk.
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. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 40, 1, 16 and 33.
FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: This is not to be missed! Today's conjunction of the sun and communication planet Mercury in the very diplomatic and eloquent station of Libra is an invitation to speak up. The things that you thought would be difficult to say will be far less so. Easy things can be taken to the level of poetry, song, legal genius, epic speech, quotable quips or maybe just the right telling of the very magic and personal words someone most needs to hear.
Tuesday, Oct. 10 will bring a sign change for the big daddy of the zodiac. Jupiter has been in Libra, the sign of relationships, for over a year. It wasn't an automatic love bonanza exactly, but there was an added boost of attention on the realm of relationships, and there was a nice bonus package for those who sincerely tried to do the work it takes to be a better partner, friend, communicator, business associate, parent, child, leader, fan, citizen and more. Jupiter has definitely done some good in Libra. Alas, it's time to dig a little deeper into Scorpio's territory. There's an added intensity factor with Jupiter's journey in the months to come, as Scorpio rules life, death, transformation and taxes. It's a time to face fears, become brave and expand spiritually. These are soulful days ahead.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Academy Award winner Matt Damon was an English major at Harvard until his acting career started to take off, causing him to drop out of the university. This artistic Libra has Venus, Jupiter and Neptune in Scorpio, indicating a strong intuitive sense. No matter how logical and intelligent an option may seem, Damon won't take it unless it checks out positively with his internal sensors.
