TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 24). The older you get, the younger your mind becomes as your curiosity keeps the inspiration flowing. Your need to explore is as real as your need for food, and you’ll find a way to adventure wondrously. Conflict resolves in February. Family will be the source of surprise, delight and support. Gemini and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 8, 60, 4, 40 and 1.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your spirit is so big that its warmth breaks down barriers and defies the boundaries of space and time. So you can be there for people without being there with them.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The aim that a person attains without forethought is not his own. Having a thing is different from achieving it. You will enjoy the processes you’ve long imagined.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll adjust your energy to that of the others, subduing it somewhat, and then slowly turning it up to arrive at a more joyful and expressive place together.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Things have more impact when fresh. You’re like a chef, managing the ripeness of ingredients so that you can use them at the optimum time they will taste the best.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The path before you will be smoothed by people who like you and want you to have an easier time. Accept the special attention.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Enthusiasm is attractive, especially when it’s dialed to a level that the others can accept. People will be skeptical if they feel they haven’t earned the level of support on offer.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll be dealing with a wide variety of communication styles, some of which will be rather vague and imprecise, though still not impossible to understand. Most likely, they mean what you think they mean.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Bad habits have rewards. To stay oblivious or ignore them is to let them rule unchecked. Once you recognize the reward, you can find other ways of reaching that end.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re better off assuming that you can improve the world than believing you can’t. In all likelihood, you have far more power than you know. You’ll find out what you can do after you’ve made a move.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be waving goodbye to an unwanted burden soon, so make the most of its presence. There are gifts inside even the most inconvenient facts of life. Why not savor them while they’re still on offer?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Don’t use every aspect of your presentation at once. Keep some novelty in the back so you can bring it out to dazzling effect later when no one is expecting it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Outsiders mistakenly assume that success depends on certain factors that may or may not have anything to do with the matter. Drop your previous notions and get in a little deeper. Things are different on the inside.
