Horoscope for Oct. 4, 2011
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) — There is a strong possibility that both you and your associates will have low flash points. Of course you can’t do anything about their grumbling, but you certainly can about your own. Smile a lot, for starters.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) — Nothing can be resolved if you don’t bring issues out into the open, where friends and family alike can help. The worst time to restrict their input is when you need assistance.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) — Take the edge off the pressure by paying down at least a small portion of an outstanding financial obligation. Letting it fester will merely lead to a major infection.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) — Use your feistiness and be assertive by pushing for everyone’s interests instead of your own. That way others will be in your corner, helping you get what you want.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — This might not be one of those lucky days when you’ll be able to get others to help you, but others might be fortunate in getting you to help bear their heavy burdens. Relax; you’ll get your turn.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) — Be diplomatic if you encounter someone who used to be a friend but with whom you’ve had a falling out. If you wish to keep your good standing with the rest of your pals, you need to play it cool.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) — It behooves you not to be demanding or abrasive when handling a complicated matter. If you act like a real wisenheimer, you’ll be left alone to fend for yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) — Don’t let a heated discussion develop by trying to force your opinions onto someone who has told you that he or she isn’t buying what you’re selling. You won’t change this person’s mind.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) — Even when encouraged to do so by someone who has made it big, don’t take any unreasonable risks pertaining to your financial affairs. Let others do the gambling.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) — Hold off until you feel comfortable if you find yourself being squeezed into making an important decision under pressure. Take all the time you need to balance your alternatives.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — Use your common sense when it comes to working with unfamiliar tools or materials. Be sensible about taking safety precautions when attempting to do something that could be dangerous.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — If you’re one of the more serious Virgos out there, try to take lightly anything that is meant simply as a joke. It’s to your advantage to chortle along with the crowd.
