Daily horoscopes: October 9, 2017


(March 20 – April 19):

What keeps a yes man from becoming a yes man is his ability to say no to you. Hear him out. He may be saving you from yourself.


(April 20 – May 20):

Focus less on credentials and more on your message and you’ll surely sell what you came to sell.


(May 21 – June 20):

Don’t accept an agency’s word as final when you’re told you don’t qualify or will be denied benefits. In-depth research reveals some cracks in the wall.


(June 21 – July 21):

Intense isn’t the same as domineering. Intense is sexy while domineering can be bullying. Make sure you can tell the difference today.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

Sit down with a troubled loved one or friend and ask what’s going on. You don’t need to have the solution or a game plan. Just a shoulder to lean on.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

Relationships are creative collaborations. You need things like question marks, empty spaces, and unfinished sentences or why bother having someone in your life?


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

Pluto has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to ducking confrontations. Whatever was sidestepped in the first four months of 2017 will have to be faced today.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

It’s good to see you reaching out to someone who’s going through what you’ve been through. You know what to say to get him/her to open up. This will heal both of you.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

Constructive criticism almost always hits a nerve.  Don’t toss it off as more nit-picking. What’s being said is invaluable.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Today’s Pluto square works to your benefit.  A moment’s hesitation saves you from throwing the baby out with the bath water.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

You’re on the wrong side of today’s Mercury/Pluto square.  The less you argue, the sooner it will be over.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Usually money doesn’t play a role in your romantic decisions, but today it does. Financial autonomy is too high a price to pay for love.
