October 8-15: This is a time to seek a broader perspective than your personal home and family. Look to the future. Reach beyond yourself. You may think things over too long, trying to reach the absolute best decision. Logic won't solve everything.
October 16-23: Body language and nonverbal cues from people offer a gold mine of information. Pay attention to what lies beneath the surface. An unexpected visitor drops in and takes extra time and attention. You are sidetracked from your normal tasks.
October 24-31: You are sensitive, empathic, and intuitive this week. You take things deeply to heart. Help others, but not to the point of self-sacrifice. Treat your beloved to a favorite meal, flowers, chocolates, or another indulgence and s/he will show appreciation in exciting ways.

October 1-7: It appears that young family members delight in thwarting you, but they are only testing their will. Turn contests into cooperation. A new viewpoint or idea could bring pleasure to the family if you do not react with automatic denial. Be open to what may occur.
October 8-15: Excitement and stimulation cast an irresistible lure. You look for an adrenaline rush in your relationship; don't go too far! Time and energy constraints pull you between love and work. Take care of business during the day and romance in the evening.

October 8-15: You (or the kids) may be inclined to splurge on some kind of self-indulgence this week. A little spoiling is fine; just don't go overboard. You're feeling a bit sensitive this week. A little extra privacy could work wonders. Protect your time alone.
October 16-23: Practical demands compete with relationship needs; keep room for both. Spend time with people who support your drive for success. A "too good to be true" offer comes your way. Don't believe it!
October 24-31: Time to get away. If you cannot take an actual trip, plan one for the future. Concentrate on how you can be independent. Emotional matters change rapidly. Roll with the punches and don't expect to end up in the same mood as you start your week.
October 1-7: Your natural stage presence, love of fun, and talent for amusing or entertaining others is in focus. Have a good time! Restlessness is the current theme. Start a trip if at all possible. If not, run errands, change the scene, and talk with people.
October 8-15: Focus on your ambitions. Evaluate your capacities for advancing and use your communication skills to further your position. You know more than you tell. Protect your own security and that of other people. Keep everything looking smooth and easy.
October 16-23: Create a compromise between wanting a new, exciting vocational challenge, versus wanting to consolidate your current position. Act in ways to ensure your security at work. This is a good time for a company potluck or anything involving food, land, or finances.
October 24-31: You can tune into those around you at work, but don't let it disrupt your attention. Skills with financial issues are more marked this week. Don't let yourself get stifled. Bring in a plant, move the office pictures, sit on the other side of your desk or alter your space a bit.

October 1-7: One-on-one activities offer pleasure. Plan on sharing your play with someone else. Togetherness is more rewarding than solitary bliss. This is a time to flow with peace within. Retreat to the seashore, mountains or a private space to meditate, pray, or quietly relax.

October 16-23: Spoil your family a bit this week. Physical comforts and material goodies seem extra important. Give yourselves a treat. Examine allowances and expenditures this week. A discussion of financial needs and responsibilities (within the family) aids realism.
October 24-31: Others find you exceptionally appealing this week. Use your "magical" charm wisely. Solitude refreshes you after much interaction. Private sharing will be more rewarding than public interactions or loud entertainment.

October 8-15: Your beloved is eager for a romantic encounter. Set the mood and enjoy the results. You have to alter a past decision. Circumstances have changed; you need to do things differently now.
October 16-23: Your mind is sharp this week, yet also precise. Plan to accomplish problem-solving that requires both speed and exactitude. Contradictory mental impulses emerge. Light, flippant and casual on one hand, digging for secrets on the other. A bit of both is OK.
October 24-31: Now is the time to be more on your own, or with people who encourage your feeling free. Do something just for YOU. You need some independence this week. Exercise your uniqueness, keep active, and do your own thing!
October 1-7: Lottery fever! The urge to gamble is high. Don't risk what you can't afford to lose. Seek safe excitement (like love or roller coasters). You are tempted to overvalue work at the expense of relationships (or vice versa). Nurture both for greatest happiness.
October 8-15: Ethical issues or moral principles arise at work this week. Just be sure the time is ripe if you choose to fight for fairness. Important papers require your attention. Legal matters may be involved. Read everything carefully.
October 16-23: If you focus on what you want and don't have, this week will be frustrating. Clarify your financial goals and move toward them. Take time to return those items with which you are dissatisfied, or to write a letter for a refund. Assert yourself.
October 24-31: Focus on your assets as well as flaws. Don't be impatient at your progress to date. Success comes one step at a time. Others expect you to balance and harmonize. You avoid unpleasantness and do all you can to keep an appealing atmosphere.
October 1-7: Depth and intensity on the docket for the week. You may be swept away by passion, or drawn toward all-or-nothing extremes. Entertainment packs a punch this week! It may be a powerful movie or play or book. Seek out inspiration, shudders or strong feelings.
October 8-15: An opportunity for advancement lies before you. Grasp it before the window closes! Don't let work "get" to you this week. You're taking it too seriously and worrying about the future. It will all work out.
