LIBRA (Sept 24-Oct 23)
If you see any signs of illness or weight gain consult a doctor. Your personal life is changing. You may be trying to gain control from relatives or difficult issues. Make some intelligent moves, because some people may be uncomfortable with the stronger new you that is emerging. By working hard, you gain self-discipline and more stability into your life. Decisions, decisions - go with your instinct and think who really deserves you. Also chose activities that improve your self-esteem.
SCORPIO (Oct 24-Nov 22).
Remember doing good will release negative karma, and with the sun in your sign on the 23rd, you feel more powerful, you'll voice your deepest feelings with wisdom in what you say. Finish up work and be courteous in all transactions. Domestic bliss is high. The children in your family need you. Try to correct past mistakes with self-analysis. Some surprises can have unexpected effects. When Saturn moves into Libra on the 29th and drops into your 12th House, this is your first test of your convictions.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 23-Dec 21)
A wait-and-see approach works best until you can sort things out. Try not to let fears inform your choices, especially financial ones. Solitude brings needed renewal. Travel can be troublesome. Avoid anything risky. Go out and meet new people. You'll need balance and help may come from a friend. Take things as they come. Private affairs are in the spotlight. Waiting for a pending decision has you on pins and needles. Patience...
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 20)
Togetherness takes a different road as shared resources - loans, credit, investments - are not that harmonious. Let things develop at their own pace. Don't push for a decision just to dispel tension.

There may be some complications in dealings with neighbors or friends.
AQUARIUS (Jan 21-Feb 19)

It is time to focus on you, capitalize on your charm. Open up if you are insecure, a mate or partner can have the right words to get you out of your indecision. Near the end of the month you two will be having all kinds of crazy fun. You love costumes so start putting together yours and your companion's.
PISCES (Feb 20-March 20)
Your social life calls for a hard-headed approach. You will get some support behind the scenes. Avoid making decisions about money and travel. There's a temptation to be too generous. Rediscover some talents and assets. Make some plans for the distant future and if you get the feeling that something major is about to happen, listen to your intuition and if you need to make some changes, don't be afraid. By next month you will have lots to deal with.
ARIES (March 21-April 20)
One good conversation should clear up any and all misunderstandings. You'll need to be careful not to be jealous or resentful. Near the end of the month you will have no choice but to be responsible and serious about partnership and professional commitments. Your sense of duty to a mate is strong. A smart idea has power. Call relatives, investigate health cures and enjoy a visit to a spa. Don't be too quick to reach decisions.
TAURUS (April 21-May21)
The call of duty is strong. Perhaps you'll help an older person with a favor. Some practical moves meet with resistance. Some unexpected news and depressing conditions.

CANCER (June 22-July 22)
If you feel defensive because you're not making the most of your abilities, step forward. Invest money into business ideas or some training to build something more secure for your future. Share your feelings with a loved one, and don't ask for sympathy. Say "yes" to an invitation. Someone close may offer up a secret. Play a host - it'll pay off.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22)
Some will face serious work issues and for some the goals are shifting. Combined efforts and money work in your favor. A favor is appreciated. Someone's sensitivity to you is quite touching. Some inspirations are in the air. Sometimes you have to keep that leonine roar down to a squeak to avoid arguments. Take care of health concerns now. Try to settle outstanding matters.
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 23)
Being of service to another in a meaningful way makes you feel good. A romance may be rekindled. A new plan or direction seems far too complicated right now. Avoid leaving possessions unprotected. More money, bonuses, rewards, or pay hikes than you'd expect. Some may adopt a pet. And for some near the end of a month they will feel like a weight has been taken off their shoulders.
