Daily horoscopes: October 4, 2017


(March 20 – April 19):

Is your criticism really coming from the right place or is it based on one-upmanship?  Examine your motives before others cross-examine them for you.


(April 20 – May 20):

A loved one shows signs of reemerging from a week-long funk.  Be helpful, but don’t push it.  He’s still a little wobbly on his feet.


(May 21 – June 20):

Watch it with the contrarian tendencies.  Not only does it get on people’s nerves but they may even leave you alone with your own misguided ideas.


(June 21 – July 21):

It’s amazing!  No sooner do you get a little extra cash in your pocket then you receive a bill for almost the same amount. Look at it this way: at least you broke even.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Harping on the negatives won’t help your loved one or you.  It’s better to radiate warm rays of encouragement than to glower behind overcast skies.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

You’re about to find that people will forgive a lot.  To err is not only human—it can even be healthy.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

You made some changes to be a part of your lover’s life, so what’s he doing to be a part of yours?  Put requests in writing so he can get used to the idea.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

Don’t go with your first reaction.  It may feel like the same old fight, but the other side is trying to change for the better.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

You’re hurt that a friend didn’t take you into her confidence sooner.  But chances are you would have played it just as close to the vest.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

You work hard to win people’s approval, so you should know what it’s like when someone seeks the same from you.  Don’t be such a hard-ass.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

There’s no act too small or favor too trivial.  Good works create a ripple effect that spread throughout your day.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Just because you can forgive and forget doesn’t mean other people can.  Expect to pick your way around smoldering resentment for days to come.
