Being tired isn't always a function of having exerted oneself. It may be more a function of having not exerted oneself when the want was there, or perhaps forgetting something rather unforgettable. Suppression and repression take a considerable amount of energy. Alas, the full moon in Taurus will free all. The floodgates open. Energy flows.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 24). This solar return sees you more ambitious, and with good cause. You can definitely leverage what you have to create a better life. More highlights: a lucky guess that rains good fortune, a twisty, speedy, exhilarating professional stretch and companionship that is a delight and a comfort to you along the way. Aquarius and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 6, 49, 33, 20 and 7.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). A little comedy will give a nice hum to an otherwise run-of-the-mill scenario. Your wry humor lands perfectly with the company you'll keep, and you could attract an admirer at that. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Everyone wants a piece of the pie today, and you'll take it one step further, preferring to call the flavor, too. You guessed it: You're going to have to do the baking now... more work, and more satisfaction. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Feeling special in the eyes of others is important to everyone. It's wonderful to be adored and loved. While praise from others is a highlight today, real and lasting validation comes from within. CANCER (June 22-July 22). If life is, as the song suggests, a highway, then today represents that stretch of road dominated by a rumbling hunger. Look for signs that will tell you where you might drive up and order what you need to feed your soul. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The same outcome could be considered a victory or a loss, depending on the larger surrounding context and the expectations of those involved. Success may be a matter of opinion. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Disorder threatens to make work inefficient, though it will tend to make life more interesting. It's a trade-off you might consider before you clean, clear and organize it all. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Fresh, rested, energized, happy minds make the best decisions. It's why some people are a different person two hours into their day than they are 14 hours into it. It's also why nothing great happens past 2 a.m.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Listen to your trusted people. They see you more clearly than you'll see yourself. There also may be excellent information from the unvetted general public. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Business is not the only area of life ruled by the laws of supply and demand. Certain social roles are in high demand. People in those roles who feel underappreciated can easily find a different and better placement.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You can't control what people think about you while it's happening, so don't worry about it. The time to influence people's impression of you is before you ever meet them. How you prepare will be everything. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There are those who work very hard to make it look easy, and then there are those who make it look easy because it is actually easy to them. The first category appreciates compliments; the second doesn't. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). As you concentrate on executing improvements that can be quantified (such as number of books read, number of calories consumed, number of people reached out to... ), unquantifiable improvements will take hold. CELEBRITY PROFILES: Internet star and author PewDiePie has a YouTube channel by the same name that has been among the most popular channels on YouTube. He was recognized by Time magazine on the list of The World's 100 Most Influential People in 2016. It takes a stellar work ethic to forge an independent path in entertainment, and this gamer was born under the hardworking Virgo moon with Venus in worldly, passionate Sagittarius.
