Daily horoscopes: October 3, 2016


(March 20 – April 19):

Relationship discussions strike a raw nerve.  Cop to your side of things and you’ll untangle the knots that have sprung up between you.


(April 20 – May 20):

You don’t like that your future is in others’ hands, but you can’t do much about that now.  Grin and bear it until Oct. 18.


(May 21 – June 20):

Promises made aren’t the same as promises kept.  Tell colleagues you appreciate the good intentions but what’s needed are deadlines met.


(June 21 – July 21):

You’ll have to deal with some heavy issues today.  Nevertheless loved ones will appreciate your compassion and your strength of character.


(July 22 – Aug. 22):

A family skeleton comes out of the closet to play.  Calmly lead it back to where it came from and shut the door.  You’ve been there/done that.


(Aug. 23 – Sept. 22):

At first it feels like you gave away the game, but hold on because a slip of the tongue reveals that a rival may have beaten you to it.


(Sept. 23 – Oct. 22):

How do you fulfill a commitment while staying true to your principles?  This is why Libra is the zodiac sign of compromise.


(Oct. 23 – Nov. 21):

An intimate shares a pretty heavy confidence and you need to think about keeping it.  Secrecy may be working against this person’s best interests.


(Nov. 22 – Dec. 20):

Your impulse is to do something different from what a superior wants.  Re-think it.  S/he’s the one paying the bills.


(Dec. 21 – Jan. 19):

Just because someone dangles a carrot in front of you doesn’t mean you have to bolt after it.  Take the next few days to make up your mind.  Carrots can keep.


(Jan. 20 – Feb. 17):

Things get unexpectedly personal today so forget about preaching objectivity.  Speak from the heart and people will hear what you have to say.


(Feb. 18 – March 19):

You’ll have to sit through a very long and moralizing lecture, but look attentive.  It’s a small price to pay for this person’s future cooperation.
