Horoscopes: Oct. 7

Holiday Mathis

Venus in Sagittarius explodes our past understanding of what love is. The fiery energy will embolden the shy, illuminate unforeseen options and magnetize us to new locations and social circles. When Venus transits Sagittarius, nothing seems out of the league when it comes to love because love isn’t a sport; it’s an adventure.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Not all inaction is alike. Doing nothing out of fear, laziness or confusion is very different from doing nothing because the best move is not to move. Today calls for disciplined inaction.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You offer your compassion to others so easily. Can you offer it more readily to yourself, too? All work and no play is an unkind approach. Relax and have fun. It’s good for you and necessary to your well-being.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). No one becomes masterfully skilled overnight. What seems like it’s happening in the spur of the moment is actually the culmination of hours of preparation. Be patient with yourself as you work on a new skill.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Partnerships that are closed off from the rest of the world will not have enough emotional oxygen to thrive. A friendship will be improved by shared experiences and outside influences. Stay open.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Accessible things will seem less interesting to you now because you crave challenge. Like a diver after pearls, you’ll plunge the depths to search for what is truly rare and beautiful.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ve a specific knowledge and expertise best understood by those in the same area of interest. Your ideas are good. The people around you aren’t necessarily qualified to judge.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Some of your reasons for doing what you do are mysterious even to you. That’s normal. The most helpful move in your relationship with yourself will be to exchange all judgment for acceptance.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The old way of thinking won’t work for this new challenge. To see the way forward, you’ll need to move away from the ideas that are so comfortable to you. The next turn must be made in faith.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some bring out the best in you by way of their support, friendship and love. Others spur you to new heights from a place of competition or opposition. Either way, you only get better.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). There are plenty of people around who, with the slightest provocation, will be forthcoming with help, advice and more. But this time, you’ll really get more interesting results by trying to figure it out on your own.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You will readily see how your mood impacts the moods of others. Since making yourself happy will help everyone, what are you waiting for? Do the thing that will bring smiles all around.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are seen in different ways by different people. Sometimes, you can shape this, but today, it’s a bit out of your control. The best you can do is relax and be confident in your choices and it will all work out for the best.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 7). Your cosmic birthday present is a perspective shift and an awe-inspiring encounter. The way you choose to see things leads to more of the miraculous. Due to the improvements and projects you take on, you’re one person at the start of 2022 and someone different at the close. Aquarius and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 3, 33, 18 and 5.
