Pre-Retrograde Party

Before Mercury goes retrograde tomorrow, should you feed your desire or kill it? After all, it’s your attachment to things that gives them the potential to disappoint you. One answer is to learn what else is out there. Experiencing variety discourages you from fixating on any single outcome. Get to know your full range of options.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You love fun people, but not every job is best handled by the colorful characters to whom you are so attracted. Trust the work to someone steady, responsible, loyal and hardworking.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Sometimes you dream of making a killing in an area of business different from the one you’re in. Today brings an opportunity to get a closer look at what this would really entail.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’d like to believe that everything will go your way now that the obvious obstacle has been cleared, but expect to do a bit more maneuvering. You’ll take off very soon, just not yet.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). The end of the day definitely will be better than the start. Stay optimistic and positive if you can, but if you don’t naturally fall into that kind of a groove, don’t worry about it too much.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Today you’ll be inspired to treat everyone like family. Of course, family members are often the ones who see the full range of your personality — the very good and the impatient, too.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You can accept that not everyone likes to try to be in a good mood. (Yes, there are those who actually prefer misery!) But you don’t have to hang around those people and let them bring you down.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). What good is having a remarkable power if you don’t use it? In your defense, it’s possible that you haven’t discovered what your power is yet. Today’s events will point you in the right direction.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll need to be patient. One practical action will not bring you the total results you want, but it will lead to the next practical action and the next until you get there.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Don’t wait for other people to be spontaneous, or you’ll wait forever. Being the fun one is your job now! You’ll show initiative and have more than one follower.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You need to get more information, and yet you’ll alienate your sources if you attempt a full-on interrogation. Step back and imagine the gentle approach that will get someone to open up and trust you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). “You think of everything!” That’s what they’ll say today when the details of your careful preparations are revealed. What they don’t know is how long it takes to pull off this kind of planning.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). When you fall in love, you fall deep — so deep that sometimes it’s hard to know whether it’s really love or a kind of obsession. Either way, you can take your intense feelings and turn them into some kind of art today.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 20). You are perceptive and sum up people quickly and accurately. This gift helps you surround yourself with the best and brightest in the year ahead. Next month brings a windfall. You will rise in prominence in your community. What’s good for your family in 2014 will ultimately be good for your career. Cancer and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 20, 14, 9 and 7.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: Put the pen away. This is no time to sign agreements, commit to long-term business arrangements or declare your love in a lengthy letter, if only because you’re likely to feel differently about things in three weeks. Tomorrow, Mercury changes directions to make life a little more interesting (or perhaps just more complicated). Don’t get too comfortable. Expect the rhythm to change, and be ready to dance, run or jump to keep up with the shift. It’s not all bad, though. Mercury retrogrades can be a fine opportunity to review recent decisions and better understand your choices and yourself. With this retrograde occurring in Scorpio, those who wish to do some soul searching can expect to come to some deeply insightful realizations.

On Wednesday, October 23, the scorpion theme continues with the beginning of the 2013 solar journey through Scorpio. During the Libran solar journey, new relationships were built. Now those connections will intensify.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Music mogul and occasional actor Snoop Dogg recently lent his voice to the character Smoove Move in the animated film “Turbo” about a super-fast snail called Turbo. Snoop Dogg was born when the sun, Uranus and Pluto were in the harmonious and artistic station of Libra. His natal moon, Mercury and Venus in Scorpio brings sizzle, edge and mystery to his astrological chart.
