The Saints Go Marching in Aries
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). As for those who monopolize the conversation, steamroll you when you're trying to express yourself and don't ask for your thoughts and ideas on the matter -- well, it's more than selfishness. It's a warning sign.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You're not in the most sensible mood, but there are some things that are better accomplished from an irrational state. If you're applying yourself to the right endeavor, it will all work out perfectly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Don't get too disillusioned. When the beautiful picture starts to crack as falsities are revealed, think of it as another phase. Keep looking. Get in closer until it's lovely again.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 1). Your birthday will turn on a light in a far-reaching corner of your mind. If you've been fulfilling someone else's dreams instead of your own, that stops this year. In January, keep studying or trying until you get your breakthrough. You will become a fan, friend, teacher or lover to an exceptionally talented person in 2018. Leo and Libra adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 17, 4, 21, 19 and 42.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I'm beginning to think that my girlfriend is partially crazy. She is normal, cheerful, loving, supportive, friendly and fun to be around about 75 percent of the time. Then about 5 percent of the time she is neutral and kind of 'blah.' Twenty percent of the time she is a madwoman. She's mean; she nags and picks on me; she yells, cries, throws tantrums for reasons I think are trivial and goes on and on about things that don't make any sense. She says that if I love her, I'll take her as she is, even the crazy parts. I'm a Taurus, and I don't even want to tell you what sign she is, as other people of that sign might get offended, thinking that I'm calling all of them partially crazy, too. Should I stay with her?"
It's easy to see how a grounded Taurus may not relate to the severe mood swings that some people go through. Your girlfriend probably loves how you can make her feel stable and centered most of the time. However, it sounds like your girlfriend may benefit from the advice of a professional in the emotional, medical and/or spiritual realm. Help her seek counsel, because 20 percent is actually a lot of life to spending in such an unpleasant manner.
