Horoscope, Friday, October, 5, 2012

Yesterday, the sun, Mercury and Saturn were in Libra. Today, the cosmic dynamic changes, first with Mercury and then with Saturn slipping into Scorpio. Saturn’s transit is the more dramatic of the two, having generational implications. The planet of responsibility and limits will move slowly through Scorpio’s transformation spell until Dec. 23, 2014.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Instead of seeing the huge task before you as an overwhelming job, see it as a series of little jobs, all of which happen to be quite doable with your current resources.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). There will be some drama. It will take but three days for the nonsense going on now to get old. Knowing that you’ll look back on it and think it’s just ridiculous, you may want to limit your current investment.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). With the moon rooting you on, there’s a bubbly quality to your conversation. Be careful: Effervescence is contagious. Tonight features a social and culinary destination.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ll be attuned to the story behind things. When the story isn’t being told, you’ll either speculate as to what it might be, or you’ll ask gentle questions to try to nudge out the truth.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may get the feeling that a boss, client or friend is sharing incorrect or irrelevant information. Though the “customer” is not always right, it’s sometimes necessary to treat them as if they are.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Jokes and stories are best shared face to face. Resist the urge to forward them in email form because it robs you of the opportunity to work on the social skills that really matter today: how you present yourself in person.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You have no interest in making a good impression. You feel that unless you can wow people, it’s not worth your time to show up. So you’ll over-deliver on what you never promised you’d do in the first place.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Mercury encourages you to take up space and command attention with your communication style. You’ll gain the support of authority figures and the approval of those who see you as an authority.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may feel inclined to reach out and quite literally touch people. Handshakes and hugs are healing, especially since you’ve spent so much energy communicating virtually.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Do not underestimate the power of your friendships. As your sign mate President Woodrow Wilson said, “Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If love is a game, this feels like the prize-winning round. Hand on the buzzer, you hope to come up with the right answer. Of course, it’s best not to make your move until you’re really sure.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your inner circle will like hearing what you think, but beyond that, there is little to gain and much to lose from discussing personal views with business associates or the general public.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 5). A new attitude takes hold in you this year. Your joy will be reflected in an activity in which you love to immerse yourself. You could rescue an animal or be someone’s hero in November. Finances improve in 2013 simply because you create a budget and stick to it. An adventure (and a possible relocation) launches in May. Scorpio and Aquarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 37, 16, 5 and 43.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: It’s natural to gravitate toward the familiar whether or not it’s what you really want. TAURUS: You’ll show your love by fulfilling a request. GEMINI: Crushes are only fun when they do not make your heart feel quite literally squashed. Casual interests are better than obsessions. Keep it light. CANCER: You’ll be conscious of how your eyes convey messages, and you’ll use them well. LEO: You’re not in it for the sheer pleasure; you want a relationship of shared virtue. VIRGO: When you and a love have the same wish, your relationship grows in this bond. LIBRA: Life may feel like a revolving door. When you’re circling through with someone you love, it’s a pleasure to keep going in circles, getting nowhere. SCORPIO: You have a way of turning a simple “thank you” into a memorable, romantic scenario. SAGITTARIUS: Share your insights. Someone loves how smart you are. CAPRICORN: The most romantic gift you can give to another is the gift of your time. AQUARIUS: You’re not fragile, but you appreciate the one who handles you with care. PISCES: As you look at a person with your heart, you see what’s invisible to the eye.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: There’s a breezy, instant rapport between Libra and Gemini air signs. Their banter is witty, and their superficial attraction is rather obvious. But can these two take the relationship to a deeper level? It just takes one person to pose that daring suggestion. This weekend, the likely candidate is Libra, emboldened by the sun and feeling that time is of the essence.
