Horoscopes Friday 7th October 2016
Aries 21 March - 20 April
An issue that seemed clear cut only quite recently, may bring up doubts in your mind in coming times. The current and powerful focus on your sector of relating can make you more aware of what others think and with Mercury dancing into this same zone, you might find that your natural impulse to lead the way is tempered more by the needs of others, Aries.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
With a focus on a service orientated part of your life, you may find helping someone in need not only gives that person a boost, but enriches you too. You might try random acts of kindness or perhaps make a routine of visiting someone who needs a listening ear. Then again, other influences could also tempt you to follow your own star. Look to juggle the two.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
As Mercury, your personal planet, dances into Libra it can enliven your social nature and may put you in the mood to get out and about more often. In addition, the Moon in the sign of the Archer and its tie to Uranus could hasten the development of a friendship or even romance. But your horoscope suggests the opportunity may need to be grasped as it arises, as it could disappear fairly fast.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
You may have done a lot for other people, which is all to the good. But the present focus hints that now it might be time to do something for yourself. And, you may get the urge sooner than you think as a lunar link to Uranus could set a restless pace. If you've been considering an idea that requires a leap of faith, then you could take the first steps sooner rather than later.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Should you listen to someone's advice or trust your instincts? The present focus on your communicational zone suggests that you could get plenty of input over coming weeks, much of which may be well meaning and intended to help. Will it? If you notice a growing feeling of urgency regarding a course of action that makes a lot of sense to you, go for that, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
While it's good to keep our options open, Mercury's move into Libra suggests that you could feel fairly ambivalent about one strand. The thought of what others might make of it and of you, once you have put it into action, could encourage you to compromise. But the current Sun Pluto square can be a call to revert to your original idea and do what's best for you.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
Rather than stand firm on one situation you could be persuaded to give way which may prove irritating, even if you don't readily show it. The focus on your sign, while excellent for negotiating, can mean you'll concede to others' demands if it enables you to avoid conflict on a one-to-one level. However, sometimes we just need to stay true to ourselves.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
As the Sun sharply angles to deep Pluto, this intense energy could fire up your instincts and make you aware that there may be a hidden agenda to what appears to be a fairly easy transaction. You'd probably be best to err on the side of caution and read the small print and make sure that you aren't missing anything key. Just being thorough like this can reassure you.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
As Mercury eases into Libra and your social zone from today, the coming three weeks can be memorable from a social perspective. Certain plans can be reignited, especially if you allow your curiosity to lead you into new arenas. And even if you don't bond with absolutely everyone you encounter, their company can spark some truly fresh ideas and opportunities.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You could find yourself in the spotlight. This might suit you, but if not for some very personal reasons you may have an aversion to having so much attention even if it might be good for your public standing and future progress. However, as Mercury glides into your sector of ambition, try to look at opportunities in a fresh light, and remain as open-minded as possible.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
As Mercury says cheerio to one of its most intense transitions in your solar horoscope, you can begin to feel lighter and brighter, almost as though a burden has been lifted from your shoulders. If you're ready for new adventures, this change can also give you a wonderful appetite not just for journeying, but opening up your mind to new possibilities too.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
With Jupiter, your co-ruler, moving more deeply into one of the more potent sectors of your chart, it would be no surprise if the idea of revamping your life seemed appealing. But this can also challenge you to look at old patterns. Will you look to cling to the status quo? If such a resistance to change comes up, look to only undertake gentle alterations for now.
