Daily horoscopes: October 17, 2018


(March 20 – April 19):

It’s hard to gauge loyalties nowadays.  Just remember that the more straightforward you are the more upfront people will be.


(April 20 – May 20):

It’s one thing to examine matters in the abstract, quite different when things get personal.  Try to remain fair and balanced when weighing both sides of the situation.


(May 21 – June 20):

What began as a difference of opinion builds momentum.  Perhaps there’s more going on than you think?  Take a peek under the hood.


(June 21 – July 21):

You don’t like being beholden to others, but work with them anyway. They may be bossy, but they’re still on to something.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

What was supposed to be a no-brainer turns into a huge headache, but it also leads you to question outdated assumptions.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

You’ve put up with an in-law’s antics for too long. It’s time to set boundaries. Let the loved one you have in common deal with the consequences.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

Don’t go looking for trouble just to jumpstart things.  If you’ve got extra energy to burn, then go to the gym or start a personal project.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

Things are tense, but you won’t be able to live with yourself if you accept second-best. Push for what you want, but be charming about it.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

An association regarded as short-term could stick around. This requires creative reshuffling since you made other commitments.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

You can ask if someone’s OK about a favor once but more than that and you’ll make this person nervous. You don’t want him/her to renege.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

After going through all the steps you find the outcome to be less than satisfying.  But don’t question the process; if anything reconsider the result.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

Sometimes focusing on the unattainable distracts from what’s in reach. Perhaps the person keeping things at arm’s length is you.
