Daily horoscopes: October 12, 2017


(March 20 – April 19):

Another supporter defects to the other side.  Maybe you want to rethink your strategy?  There’s a reason why they say if you can’t beat them, join them.


(April 20 – May 20):

You don’t have to solve the problem.  Asking the right questions is all it takes to help someone find his own way.


(May 21 – June 20):

Reverse tactics.  Instead of being provocative, be agreeable.  Not only will this throw critics off, but it rescues you from an indefensible position.


(June 21 – July 21):

It’s amazing how ideas you resist the most turn into ones you champion passionately.  Tell people who can’t figure you out that you’re given to caprice.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Don’t get stumped by the whys and wherefores of a project before you do your research.  Many of your questions will answer themselves.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

You’re getting a funny feeling that someone isn’t being upfront.  Contact inside sources to see what they say.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

Stepping on others’ feet is unavoidable, so you might as well proceed as planned.  Whether you want to stomp or tiptoe is entirely up to you.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

A sibling you wrote off as superficial shows unexpected signs of depth.  It takes a while for people to grow into themselves and this person’s time has come.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

You still won’t convince the other party that you’re entirely blameless and does it really matter?  Bury the hatchet.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

You can’t turn the clock back on a certain association, but you may not have to.  Work with changes taking place and the familiar becomes new again.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Sometimes the most helpful thing is to let people stumble through their own problems.  But hang close in case they need an assist.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

If things become intolerable, you are always free to go.  Sometimes knowing you can leave allows you to sleep soundly at night.
