Daily horoscopes: October 19, 2017


(March 20 – April 19):

You need to make some changes if you want a relationship to work.  You know you’re openhearted, but are you open-minded?


(April 20 – May 20):

You won’t like forking over hard won gains, but it’s a small price to pay to keep the peace.


(May 21 – June 20):

Praise colleagues and they’ll work even harder.  Positive encouragement is a currency that never gets devalued.


(June 21 – July 21):

What was supposed to be a done deal gets infinitely more complicated.  But don’t sweat it.  Delays will only make the terms more favorable.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Take over the fact-checking mission.  Not only will you enjoy doing research, but familiarity with the material makes you the undisputed authority.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

How can you be conciliatory yet affirmative?  It’s a tricky balance, but once established you’ll be free of a major power struggle.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

You may resent a supervisor’s meddling, but this person’s aim is to bring you up to speed.  Think of it as riding with training wheels until you’re ready to go it alone.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

It’s been an uphill climb, but ask yourself if you’re better off now than at the beginning of the year?  The answer may surprise you.

The challenge is to not burn any bridges while test-driving the “new” you.  It’s doable as long as you make allowances for family and friends to adjust.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Usually you’re the one who’s afraid of disappointing, but now it’s a boss who’s worried about not doing right by you.  Enjoy the role reversal.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Expect to live out of a suitcase for the next few weeks.  It’s because you’re everyone’s favorite goodwill ambassador and you bring positive feeling wherever you go.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Part of you wants to forgive a debt and be done with it.  Don’t.  You need to be paid back and a certain someone needs to make good on it.
