Mercury's Last Libra Day
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The more responsibility you assume the more power you have. However, at some point, you have to ask how much power you really want. More is not always better.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Talk to someone you don't know. The freshness of finding a communication rhythm with a stranger will bring its own kind of thrill. And it's not every day you get to make a first impression.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may never jibe with some people as smoothly as you do your best friends. Yet don't let this stop you from trying to connect. There are still many pleasant interactions to be had if you give them a chance.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 16). The friends you make over the next three months will lead you to lifestyle upgrades. You'll learn a new side of your work in November. At the start of 2018, there's a chance to help family do something important for the next generation. A hobby turns into something more, bonding hearts in the process. Leo and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 19, 2, 22 and 44.
TURN THE DOWNSIDE OF YOUR SIGN INTO AN ASSET: Each sign has strengths and weaknesses, and often they are the very same qualities. Childishness is a quality that is a part of the ARIES personality at any age. The ram is the firstborn child of the zodiac, and Aries natives often remain a bit naive, no matter what they know of the world. They are also impulsive and impatient. Aries can make the most of these qualities by using them to get out of bad situations and into more fulfilling ones. Whereas a more patient person will wait around to see whether a situation gets better, Aries is the first to spring up and move on, believing that something better is out there for those bold enough to start over.
TAURUS is known for being stubborn. No one can get a Taurus to change. Change has to be internally motivated. No one can alter the mind of a Taurus; it's a decision that only the Taurus can make. No one can motivate a Taurus. Taurus is self-motivated. Taurus can make the most of this stubbornness by choosing worthy goals that will take a long time to accomplish. Taurus will keep going after all the others have given up and will eventually be the victorious last one standing.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: John Mayer, whose reputation as a player extends to much more than guitars, recently tweeted about spending "an inordinate amount of time per day wondering if Nicki Minaj would like" him or not. A flirty response from the rap queen offered some hope. Mayer was born when the sun, Mercury, Venus and Pluto were all in Venus-ruled Libra, the sign on a constant quest for loveliness.
