Happy birthday for Monday October 22, 2018:
This year you express a penchant for daydreaming, but will quickly and readily jump to action when the need arises. Avoid people who are controlling, especially in your profession; they could undermine your work and goals. If you are single, you could meet someone from out of the blue. This person could be The One. If you are attached, the two of you relate well but also experience an unusual intensity. Your sweetie seems to be an even stronger force! ARIES encourages you to take risks more often.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)
You could feel pulled like saltwater taffy, as people and situations demand your presence. A boss might be difficult, and a partner or associate is challenging at best. Relax, and the tense moments will dissipate faster. Postpone major decisions, if possible. Tonight: Do what you enjoy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Stand back and watch others’ tempers get fired up. Your observations could prove helpful at a later point. You could be too tired to get into the passing issues of the day right now. Be smart and say little. You also might be evaluating a personal matter. Tonight: Happiest at home.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You can listen to a friend and agree with his or her logic. Still, you might not want to follow through on this person’s suggestion. Listen to several different suggestions to see if one idea proves to be more comfortable. Discuss your thoughts. Tonight: Kick up your heels.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Someone might be demanding in asking for help in dealing with an issue. You will say “yes,” but you’ll probably regret the time this commitment will take. Get more in touch with your feelings and obligations, if possible. Prioritize, then act. Tonight: Happily head home.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Reach out to someone at a distance. A meeting might be possible, despite the miles between you. A partner shares some inspirational and powerful ideas. You could be terse when dealing with this person. Be aware that you might be seen as difficult. Tonight: Be adventurous.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You could be listening to someone you feel very close to. Understand how much this person has to offer, and be sure to use his or her suggestions. Don’t try to move a person who is unmovable and stubborn. You will be wasting your time. Tonight: Be with a special friend.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Defer to someone else. You might not be ecstatic about this course of action, but ultimately it will benefit you. Be aware of your limited influence. Recognize what doors this person could cause to close. You might revisit an important decision. Tonight: Accept an invitation.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Defer to others, and get past an emotional limitation. You know what works for you. Do not hesitate to ask for what you want. You might not think you will receive a positive response, but you will. Keep in mind that you are simply starting up a conversation. Tonight: Hang out.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Your willingness to dig below the surface allows you to take the next step. Your creativity emerges with whatever issue or conversation heads your way. Use caution with spending. You will get some strong results. Do not underestimate your influence. Tonight: Let the party go on.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You could be quite concerned about your choices in the next few days. You might not be sure of yourself, which is unusual. However, you present a strong demeanor. Note that what you thought you wanted might no longer be valid. Tonight: Choose a favorite stress-buster.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your sunny personality melts someone else’s resistance. Still, you might not be as open as you would like to be. The real issue might be your resistance — even though you might not have recognized it before now. Ask a friend for much-needed feedback. Tonight: Remain calm.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Zero in on your priorities. You will be able to manifest what you want. If you are pursuing something different from your norm, consider whether you have an inner resistance that is likely to emerge. Become more in tune with your surroundings. Tonight: Go where the crowds are.
