Today's Horoscope

Aries Horoscope for Monday, October 16, 2017

You have the urge to succeed, and you aren`t about to let anything or anyone stand in your way. You should get some good opportunities to show what you`re made of, and you can expect people to pay attention to what you say right now. It`s nice to have this kind of power, but try to avoid taking advantage of the people who seem to be in awe of you. After all, you do still have to look at yourself in the mirror, and it`s important to like what you see.
Taurus
You have high morals, standards and ethics, and you expect the people who you`re spending time with to live up to your high expectations. There`s nothing wrong with holding yourself up to this kind of behavior, but your friends, family, coworkers and even strangers on the street probably aren`t in the mood for you to tell them how to conduct their lives. Feel free to say what`s on your mind, but do your best to avoid using a preachy tone to get your point across.
Gemini

Someone you are working with closely has a hidden agenda, but you`re having a hard time seeing through their slick facade. You have to come up with the right kinds of questions in order to get them to open up to you and tell you what they`re really thinking, so it`s time to start getting a little more clever. Don`t let yourself fall for their innocent act, either. You`re determined to get to the bottom of this mystery, and you have the patience to stand your ground even if it takes all day.
Cancer
You may not be giving off the kind of attitude or personality that you really want to be projecting right now. Try to look at yourself through someone else`s eyes in order to get a better idea of how you`re coming across. An adjustment of sorts may be necessary -- not a major one, but just enough to make sure that you aren`t pushing things beyond certain boundaries. Sure, there are days when you don`t mind a little extra attention, but this definitely isn`t one of them.
Leo

Good health is the foremost thing on your mind, and you may even be called a fanatic by the less-energetic people in your life. It`s great that you want to spend most of your time exercising, reading health magazines or counting the fat grams, calories and other nutritional info on the food you eat, but keep in mind that everyone else might not be interested in your healthy lifestyle. While you are getting into shape, your friends and family are more than happy to watch you -- without participating.
Virgo
All of the hard work you`ve put in over the past few days is about to pay off for you. Whether you`re rewarded financially for your efforts or just receive a simple thank you, it`s nice to know that what you`ve been doing lately hasn`t gone completely unnoticed. Your friends or colleagues may be jealous of the attention you`re getting, but don`t let that bother you. Allow yourself this one short bit of time in the spotlight without feeling guilty -- after all, you really do deserve it!
Libra

Everything seems off just a bit, like it`s been skewed -- but only by a few degrees. There might not be anything you can do to stop yourself from feeling this way, but if you accept that things are going to be this way for at least a little bit, you might be able to take advantage of this new perspective. Pretend that you`re looking at the world from someone else`s vantage point and enjoy the view for a while. You might not remember how you feel at this very moment tomorrow, but the experience still counts.
Scorpio
There`s really no one you can`t get along with today, and you`re more than happy to go out of your way to help a total stranger. You`re in complete control of who you are and where you`re going, and you have a desire to work with other people to help build something better for your neighborhood, city or maybe even the entire world. You have big ideas right now, but it might be a good idea to start small and work your way up to the big stuff.
Sagittarius

You won`t get where you want to go by beating around the bush. If you know what you want, don`t be afraid to come right out and ask for it. You may be unusually focused on money at the moment, but using the direct approach can also work for you in this area of your life. Once you lay out a plan and set clear goals for yourself, there`s very little that you won`t be able to accomplish. Avoid mixing money with friendship, however, as this can be a bad combination.
Capricorn
This is the day that you get to see the results of all of your hard work. Keep your head held high and remember to breathe -- it won`t come as a surprise to anyone that what you`ve been working on is about to be a complete success. You have the ability to impress other people not only with what you`ve been able to accomplish but also with your humble attitude. Now that everyone knows what you`re capable of, you can expect more good things to come your way.
Aquarius

If you look for a reason for why everything is happening today, you might be surprised to find that there really is no explanation. Just go with the flow and try not to ask too many questions. This might be a difficult task for you, since you like to base a lot of your beliefs on actual data and facts, but there are some things that will happen that are simply beyond the realms of reason. You might even have to pinch yourself once or twice to make sure you aren`t dreaming.
Pisces
This is the time to call in all of the favors that your friends, family or coworkers owe you. If you need help with something, there`s absolutely no reason for you to attempt to do it on your own. Even if no one is indebted to you, most of the people in your life are more than happy to come to your aid, but you have to be willing to ask for their help. If you`re the one who`s used to being in charge, it might be hard to ask for assistance, but once you do, you`ll feel as though a huge burden has been lifted from your shoulders.
