A competitive angle between Mercury, planet of communication, and the fiery energies of Mars, suggests that a persuasive mood can prevail.
We may need to handle other people's objections sensitively too, as this blend of energies can sometimes be a cause of frustration or disagreement. For your FREE Daily Horoscope Wednesday 12th October 2016 please see below...
Horoscopes Wednesday 12th October 2016
Aries 21 March - 20 April
The astral picture shows that you may have a long to-do list, but if it involves fulfilling other people's needs and neglecting your own, does something need to change? Although the ongoing Mars Neptune tie can incline you to help out, the cosmos also encourages you to forge ahead and do what you have to do for you. It's all about finding the right balance, Aries.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
With your sector of wishes and long-held dreams spotlighted, the cosmic picture could see you reviewing your plans and taking stock of your priorities. If you've had a hit and miss approach to defining what you hope to achieve, then Mars's link to Neptune encourages you to adjust your focus and to zero in on those that can bring you the greatest satisfaction.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
With Mercury, your ruler, liaising with Jupiter and journeying through your leisure zone, the time may be ripe for moving in new circles and exploring activities you've never tried before. While you may not always chime with other people's ideas at times Gemini, all this can be a positive learning curve and one that may see you looking to update some of your beliefs.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
There's a focus on lighter relationships, especially with the affable energies of Venus lighting up your pleasure zone and enticing you to explore the potential in a new friendship or budding romance. What interests you about another, might be a story they tell or an experience they've had that captures your imagination. In fact, your horoscope reveals this could see you wanting more.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Any information you've gathered can give you inspiration for the future, and could see you envisaging all sorts of possibilities. This can be an excellent time to expand your horizons either by studying or by networking and linking with those on your wavelength. Even so, your instincts could also play a vital part in any key decisions, so look to tune into this too, Leo.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
As Mercury angles towards Mars you may want to try out a new experience but the cost could be a factor. If you think about all this too much though, you might end up in a state of analysis paralysis, Virgo. Why not consider asking a friend for their take or researching the pros and cons deeper can help too. Either way, this may reveal a more affordable solution.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
You may be busy over coming days and weeks, with a lively focus in your sign encouraging you to invest energy in personal projects and goals. At the same time, the stirring energies of Mars in your domestic sector can push you to get organised and sort out any household niggles. If you organise a full on de-cluttering session, you can feel all the better for doing it.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Creative stirrings might encourage you to clothe a plan with imaginative ideas and to harness key talents of yours to make it a reality. This can be an interesting few days when you could find that turning to art or crafts has a therapeutic effect. If tensions have bubbled around certain issues, a few minutes spent relaxing in this way can be very good for you, Scorpio.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
As the Sun moves to oppose Uranus in your leisure sector, the rest of the week could see you becoming restless, unless you can find a way to channel this frenetic vibe. You may find your social scene too tepid for your liking, with this aspect enhancing a desire for greater excitement. But if a new activity appeals to you, this would be an excellent time to try it out.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
You may find it difficult to know where to focus your attention as there can be issues to deal with both at home and regarding your goals or career. If you're unsure where to start it may be because you feel pressurised. A part of this can be a need to see results fast, but life could be unpredictable over the coming week, so patience will be essential for you now.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
With Mars in a secluded sector of your chart linking to Neptune it may help to be gentle with yourself regarding an issue that you feel you could have handled better. The likelihood is that if you had to go through this again you would do the same thing. Rather than feel guilty about this matter, accept that sometimes life can be like this. It will help to liberate you.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
The ability to take things in your stride can be helpful over the coming week or so, when a situation involving your social life could resemble a roller-coaster ride. Feelings may rise and fall in turns as the intensity peaks then subsides. Avoid getting caught up in such issues if you can, as adopting a more detached perspective could allow you to sidestep such dramas.
