Daily Horoscope (October 4, 2018)


Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Career responsibilities may require a temporary separation from a love partner today, Aries. This is apt to be upsetting and rather disheartening, but there’s likely nothing you can do about it except work as quickly as you can so that you can finish and get back to your partner. Make sure your friend knows what’s going on. You don’t want to cause any more upset.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Travel arrangements may have to be put off because of unexpected developments that keep you where you are, Taurus. You may be worried about the consequences, but don’t waste your energy. You’ll be able to make the necessary trip, and accomplish whatever you’re hoping to do – just not today. Worry will only stress you out. The only productive way to deal with this is to keep moving.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You may feel especially lonely, overworked, and passionate today, Gemini, and therefore longing for the company of your romantic partner. But responsibilities involving you both could well be keeping you apart. This could be more than frustrating – it could make you gloomy. Don’t let that happen. Concentrate on your work and finish before evening. You’ll see your friend then.

Cancer (June 21 – July 21)
Upsets in the home could occur today, Cancer. You and other members of your household are on edge and liable to snap at the least provocation. Someone could get all flustered over a minor problem and storm out. Don’t worry. At day’s end everyone should see events in their proper perspective and all be friends again. Hang in there.

Leo (July 22 – August 23)
Expected calls or deliveries may prove more trouble than they’re worth, Leo. You could get involved in endless games of phone tag, and deliveries might come when you’re out. This can be avoided if you’re prepared. Make sure everyone knows what you’re expecting so they can watch for it. Tell people the best times to phone and be available at those times. Don’t worry. You’ll manage.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
A temporary delay in receiving some expected funds might force you to postpone a much-needed purchase, Virgo. Don’t make yourself crazy over this. It isn’t worth the stress. The delay is disheartening, but it isn’t a cancellation. Your money will arrive and you’ll be able to go ahead with your plans. In the meantime, keep yourself busy. Hang in there.

Libra (September 22 – October 22)
Some older visitors to your home, perhaps your parents, might be too vocal in their assessment of how you’re handling a situation, Libra. You’re particularly sensitive today, and far less tolerant of criticism than usual. Don’t lash out. Causing a rift won’t solve anything. Change the subject and take whatever course of action you feel is best.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Beware that creative efforts involving modern technology, such as computer graphics, recording, or film, might suffer from “too many cooks.” Everyone has a different idea of how things should be handled. If this is your project, make sure everyone knows you’re the boss. If you have partners, discuss the situation rationally with them. Don’t sabotage your enterprise because of disagreements. Talk it over.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
In spite of the leaps and bounds you’ve taken over the last several months, Sagittarius, a slump could set in as you start to doubt your ability to attain your goals. A disheartening and unexpected setback may have occurred, but you’ve never let this sort of thing stop you before. Don’t fall into this trap now. Brace yourself, reassess your methods, and get back in the saddle.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Are you waiting to hear some important news, Capricorn? Significant career matters may be involved. This isn’t a good day to sit around waiting. Your call will probably come late, when you least expect it. Turn on your voicemail, get dressed, and go out and do something else for a while. Otherwise you could well drive yourself crazy hoping for the news. Hang in there.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
This isn’t a good day to travel, Aquarius, especially by air. Long lines at the ticket counter, endless delays, and lost luggage could be the result. This may not even be a good day to plan a trip, although you can consider your options. If you must fly today, get to the airport early, travel light, and take something good to read. That will make it bearable.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
A friend or colleague involved in an enterprise with you could be inhibited in some way by lack of money, Pisces. This might involve some unexpected adjustment on your part, perhaps finding someone else to temporarily fill in. It’s a pain, but you and your colleagues will manage, and your friend should have it together in time. Find a way to work around the situation. Hang in there.
