ASTROLOGY FOR WEEK BEGINNING OCTOBER 16, 2003

By Dee Price Miller

LIBRA (Sept. 24 to Oct. 23) Service to other people has been and will be taking up a lot of your time and effort. Your regular work routine takes more time and effort than usual but is not more rewarding. You are working on a secret situation which will start to payoff in mid-November and produce better and better results in the next 12 months in whatever area you expect it to. Job aspects do not seem to produce much in the immediate future.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 to Nov. 22) Some you are so tied up in a new attraction that you canít think of anything else. Others have your eye on the dollar and are expecting to profit from the market or loans. Friends mean more than usual and it is a good time to join organizations that will help you achieve your goals. Get more than one estimate if you are remodeling property and beware of dreaming too big if anything concerning real estate is involved.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 to Dec. 21) During this expansive time for you, make sure changes are in your best interests because they will be final and no second-guessing will be allowed. Home do-it- yourself projects are doomed to failure. Donít even think about it. Watch your tongue now as people will remember exactly what you said. A secret love remains just thatósecret. It wonít last, either. Friends can be very useful. Just ask for what you want.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) It is time to watch your pennies and guard your wallet. Theft is possible and so are situations where you think you must buy something you donít need at all. Your tongue may be on the loose, too (very unusual for Capricorn) and you will have to explain your remarks later. Treat partners and associates with respect. If you have a yearn to travel, go if you possibly can afford it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Things are peaceful between you and your partner because he/she simply does not rise to the bait. Many things that have been of great importance to you in the past are not of interest to you any more because you sense they are ending, and good riddance. New interests and opportunities are on their way once you have cleared out the old stuff. There is a career opportunity surrounding you, be aware of it.

PISCES (Feb. 20 to March 20) You are stronger than you think whether the situation is a physical or mental or emotional one. Do not let it get you down. "Speak softly and carry a big stick" is good advice for you now. Whatever battles you fight, you will win. You can make money if you have a strong grasp of the market. Cooperation with a partner can bring good results. Secrets you are keeping now are perfectly safe.

ARIES (March 21 to April 20) Home, children, illness or daily work are accented this week. You will be in an emotional and nurturing mood wanting to be of service to others, but not expecting pay for it. Any domestic or property concerns continue to weigh heavily on your mind and will continue to do so in the coming months. As usual this time of year, the power lies with others and your best course is to be friendly and helpful. Your day will come in mid-December.

TAURUS (April 21 to May 21) You are struggling now to make big changes in your life and break free of situations that are putting pressure on you and will continue to do so until January. Someone rescues you and the problem is solved. Right now appreciate the one who loves you and enjoy that as much as you can. Keep dreaming of solutions and one of them will come true. Your boys are under good aspects and one of them may be in "love."

GEMINI (May 22 to June 21) Matters look favorable for you in anything concerning family matters or property. It is a good time to either buy or sell or rent real estate. If you are job hunting try to find something that involves water or searching or night efforts. The stranger the job, the better your chances of getting it. Foreign lands and foreigners are both favorable to you now. Partners are ready to cooperate with you in any way they can.

CANCER (June 22 to July 23) There is a big change in the type of work you do and you are highly involved in it no matter how difficult it is for you to learn it or adapt to it. It can benefit you greatly in the future. Investing for profit is tricky, so be sure you know what you are doing. This is not a very good month for you, either, so stick to routine and look forward to the 24th and beyond when the world will look brighter for you.

LEO (July 24 to Aug. 22) Partners stand ready to be of service to you, but donít let them overdo it. Money that has been delayed now comes to you. Be sure to thank others for it if you are going to have to deal with them in the future. Intense romantic episodes are on the agenda for many of you. Just overlook quirkiness in others in all situations. They are trying to find common interests on which to build a strong relationship with you.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 23) This is a lucky time for you especially where property is concerned. Children, young people, parties and romance present problems rather than good times. Things are not what they seem where partners and other people are concerned. You need to draw a fine line between trusting and being suspicious of anotherís actions. Even if you are suspicious, take no action now. Wait and see what happens.
