If You Were Born Today, October 17
You have strong opinions and possess much determination. Your insight into human nature makes up part of your appeal to others. Your tendency to bang your head against the wall and to become frustrated easily is something that you outgrow and/or temper over the years. Your strong ideals and emotions, if channeled constructively, can bring you much success in your chosen profession. Communication is important to you, although your own communication style is moody. You are highly intelligent and possess the ability to “hit the nail on the head.” Although you can be blunt at times, you generally come across well to others, simply because they can sense your good intentions. Famous people born today: Pope John Paul I, Evel Knievel, Arthur Miller, Eminem, Ziggy Marley, Rita Hayworth, Montgomery Clift, George Wendt, Margot Kidder.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday occurs around a First Quarter Moon this year, and you are reaching an important turning point in terms of personal growth. You may be more emotional this year, and should watch for unnecessary conflicts and making hasty decisions as a result. Otherwise, this is a year of great energy, motivation, and growth. You are more ambitious and desirous of action in the year ahead. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.

You benefit from a Jupiter transit to your sign this year, and this can help lift your spirits and increase your confidence. This transit can bring distinct opportunities into your life. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve this year. You are more sociable and might meet especially helpful people during this period. Travel opportunities are more likely. Your broader perspective on matters this year keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.

Your mind is often working at top speed and perhaps ahead of itself. You find it easier to assert your desires and opinions. However, there can be times when you’re too hasty or impatient. You might often get frustrated if the results of your actions are not instant, but it’s best to cultivate some patience when it comes to realizing your goals.

This is a year in which you seek out nourishment and naturally nurture and support others. Needs and cravings are in strong focus, and you’re drawn to those things you feel are more wholesome, healthy, and natural. This can be a year in which you make significant lifestyle improvements and/or positive changes to your home and family life.

Excellent energy is with you for imaginative pursuits. You are more sensitive artistically, your imagination is stirred, and you have an increased appreciation for subtleties. You are inspired and could even inspire others with your words. Some of your hunches could be prophetic. You are thinking more creatively, too.

You’re also quite driven to make improvements and effect positive change in the year ahead. This impacts many areas of your life beyond the personal, including relationships and work.

This is a year of initiative and energy. Focusing will be the key to success. You are exploring new things, interests, places, and situations this year, and it becomes you! Do watch for impatience in both your actions and communications, however. You certainly have more courage than usual now, but rushing through things can unnecessarily complicate your life. Creativity blossoms in the period ahead.

2018 is a Number Two year for you. Ruled by the Moon. This is a year of potential companionship. It is a quiet, gentle, and mostly harmonious year that is generally not as active than other years. Instead, you are more responsive to the needs of others. If you are patient and open yourself up in a gentle manner, you will attract what--and who--you want into your life now. This is an excellent year in which to build and develop for the future. Advice - be patient, be receptive, enjoy the peace, collect, develop, build, and attract.

2019 will be a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It's likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for "play" time are greater than usual. It's also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice - reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.

Fall Activities by Zodiac Sign
by ladyoftheabyss
Use Astrology to find fun this fall!
Simone Butler
By Simone Butler

Zodiac, Fall, Astrology

Autumn is a gorgeous season to be outdoors -- the trees are decked out in their gold-and-russet finery, and there's still enough sun to ward off the chill. So, tear yourself and your loved ones away from the all-consuming black hole of electronic devices, and pay a fun visit to Mother Nature. Where to go? Here are some ideas to jumpstart your imagination:

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You like to be where the action is. Chasing storms out in the desert or another flat expanse would get your heart pounding -- just make sure you don't get too close! You could also take a fast-moving train or boat trip to enjoy the fall scenery and feel the elements whizzing by. Fall is a good time to run a marathon, as the weather has cooled down some. It would help you get in shape before all that holiday feasting, too!

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
A long, slow drive to savor the season would be right up your alley. Plan an all-day or weekend getaway, with stops at favorite restaurants or new ones that you've researched online. As a destination, a hot springs would be fantastic -- you could enjoy a hike in nature, then soak for hours in healing mineral baths. You'd also enjoy visiting a picturesque town with lots of fun boutiques where you could stroll and shop for hours!

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Because your mind is so over-stimulated, autumn is a good time to chill out. An outdoor activity that focuses you completely on a goal -- such as rock-climbing or archery -- would clear and refresh your mind. Just be sure to leave the cell phone behind! An out-of-town film festival or wine-tasting tour would satisfy your need for variety and help you relax. If you're in good shape, a back-packing trip will really get you grounded.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Get thyself away from the kitchen, and out into nature where you can drink in the nourishment of the elements. You could drive to the mountains, hike during the day, then bundle up in warm clothes and view the stars at night. Or, plan an outing to visit family who live at a distance, and have them guide you on a walking tour of the area. If possible, plan your trip for the Full Moon, when your energy will be high.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Horseback-riding would be an ideal autumnal excursion for you. Imagine yourself galloping through the trees in all their splendor, as the wind whips through your hair. Anything that gets your blood pumping, such as mountain-climbing or skiing (if there's enough snow), would be good for both your heart and your spirits. If you need some motivation, be sure to reward yourself with a fine-dining experience afterward!

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Planting a pre-winter garden, perhaps as a family or community endeavor, would be a lovely autumn activity for you. You could also round everyone up and visit a local farm or harvest fair to enjoy the animals and stock up on goodies like fresh goat cheese and homemade preserves. You might try planning an excursion to a lavender field to gather blossoms for sachets, or going on a hike and gathering white sage to make into fragrant bundles.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
A romantic stroll down a wind-swept beach at sunset with a loved one would be your perfect autumn excursion. Or, take a trek around a beautiful lake and watch the ducks at play. A shopping expedition to a part of town that features clothing and home accessories from another country (such as Korea, Africa or India) would also be a fun outing when done in tandem. Treat yourselves to an exotic meal while you're there.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Getting away from time to time is essential for you. An excursion to the deep, dark woods would restore your soul this autumn. Go alone or with someone special, and commune in silence with the trees. Because your element is "fixed water," which translates to ice, why not visit an ice-skating rink for an extra-special adventure? The simple, down-home pleasure of a rodeo or outdoor concert should also please you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You love exploring unknown territory, even in your own backyard. This autumn, get out a guidebook to your city or a neighboring one, and plan outings to places you've never been before. Visit an observatory to see the constellations, an art museum to enjoy the latest exhibition, or go whale watching on a cruise ship. You could also go on a guided Sierra Club hike to learn about your local flora and fauna.

Capricorn... see more (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You love the past, so plan an excursion this autumn to an antique mall or open-air flea market to forage for treasures. Touring a local historical landmark or natural history museum would also satisfy the part of you that appreciates antiquity. You enjoy desert landscapes -- the vast expanses soothe your soul -- so why not plan a desert trek? Even better if you can add a trip to a local hot springs to soothe your weary bones.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Autumn is a wonderful time to participate in team sports, from football to Frisbee. Even getting out to the park for a game of croquet or swinging in a swing can make you feel like a kid again. Because you're interested in what's new and progressive, you could also participate in a tour of "green" homes in your area, or learn how to landscape with edible plants by taking a weekend workshop on permaculture.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Visiting a marine park would be the perfect autumn outing for your watery soul, as would whale watching or sailing. If you're seeking something tranquil, spend a day at the spa getting pampered, then go out for a delicious fish dinner. If a high-flying adventure sounds more appealing, hot-air ballooning or hang gliding might do the trick. Going to an outdoor concert where you can dance your heart out would also be fun! is Part of the Daily Insight Group ©2018

Horoscopes for Wednesday, October 17


The Moon moves into your social sector today, dear Aries, and friendships, entertaining, enjoying company, or connecting with your happiness goals and dreams can be in sharper focus. Your sense of community or your desire to interact with friends is strong. When it comes to your work or responsibilities, try not to put unreasonable pressures on yourself — do what you can. There may be a conflict arising that seems to pit partnership against career, and a compromise should be sought. Watch for overreaching now. Part of you is especially interested in keeping the peace, but it can be challenging and perhaps exhausting to reach a compromise. This can also be a time when you feel overwhelmed by career matters but can’t quite pull yourself away, either. Try to enjoy the positive energy available now for your social affairs.


The Moon heads into your career sector today, dear Taurus, and your goals and responsibilities are fresh on your mind. It’s a good time for keeping busy. In fact, you’re motivated to do your best. Even so, you’re more sensitive than usual to imbalances in your personal environment, and there can be plenty of these now! You can be especially involved in a particular project, task, or work, but there can be some pressures coming from the outside distracting you. Be sure to take some time for yourself and say “no” from time to time. You may be tempted to do more than is healthy. Avoid setting unreachable goals. Watch for exaggeration and obsession now and keep things real, but look within for answers as to what you may be missing. Be confident but also moderate for best results.


The Moon heads into your inspirational solar ninth house, dear Gemini, and you’re more inclined to focus on the positive and uplifting elements of your life. There is some tendency to worry about those things that seem out of your control today, however, and it’s a good idea to use the power of the Moon’s transit to rise above it. You may be craving more from your relationships, but you can be divided about what that is exactly. Be careful you don’t engage in a power struggle. Instead, be an observer and determine how you can improve matters of sharing and balancing the power. It’s a good idea to weigh your options rather than force significant decisions with relationships and money today. It can be a challenge to reach an agreement with competing drives going on now, but you have several reasons to work things out and enjoy yourself.


The Moon heads into your intimacy sector today, dear Cancer, and you begin to look for a little more depth than usual to your projects, activities, and interactions. In-depth study or research can be a real draw, and useful, too! You’ve been enjoying a stronger need for comfort, safety, and familiarity, but relationship matters can distract you and keep you on the edge of your seat. Try to maintain reasonable expectations of others –and yourself. You can do this by aiming to recognize areas where you’re succumbing to too much pressure. Ambitions run high, but if they consume you, you won’t get any closer to them. Family and partnering needs can conflict now, and the answer may be to loosen your grip on a particular method or desired outcome.


The Moon heads into your partnership sector today, dear Leo, and you may be seeking out some company. Areas of imbalance in your life or relationships can be more evident with this brief but useful transit, and this is a time for gaining perspective, likely through the eyes of someone close to you. You have many responsibilities, and while this can be satisfying, if they’re too much, they can be weighing you down and interfering with your general outlook and mood. As such, do what you can to take short breaks so that you can center yourself. Recognize the point where attempts to be productive enter into the unproductive zone. There are limits! Try to pace yourself and do what you can to keep personal and work matters separate for best results.


The Moon moves into your work and health sector today, dear Virgo, and you’re sure to find ways to bring a little more order to your life. Again today, you may be wrestling with competing needs for comfort or predictability and excitement, however. Worries and fears may undermine decision-making, in fact. Others’ expectations can weigh on your mind, and if you assign them too much importance, it can be difficult to unwind. Be careful not to allow your relationship concerns interfere with your need for a break or some peace and quiet. The drama may be wearing you down, and your fear of missing out can compromise your need for rest and comfort. As difficult as this may be at the moment, aim... see more for moderation.


The Moon heads into your self-expressive solar fifth house, dear Libra, and romance, entertainment, hobbies, recreation, and social involvements receive more of your attention for a couple of days. Feelings are dramatic, and games or diversions may be in order. Watch for overdoing this, and you’ll be in good shape. Your attention to family or your personal life may be draining you and interfering with your independence or need for personal time and space, however. This can be in focus and challenging now as Pluto forms a square to Ceres in your sign, and you might consider devoting some extra time to your personal plans, as they could do with some special attention and love. This can serve as a wonderful refresher, in fact.


The Moon moves into your home and family sector, dear Scorpio, and your instincts are to stick with what makes you feel safe and comfortable. The goal is to rebuild emotional strength at this point in the lunar cycle. Mind you, this can conflict with Venus in your sign encouraging you to get out and about and explore new pleasures. There is a part of you that wants to escape and another part that may be concerned about getting behind if you take time away from your people or projects. You have a stronger desire to stay on top of things and to produce, but this can keep you in a constant state of being “on” and overdoing things. Recognize your need to take a break.


The Moon heads into your solar sector of communication and movement, dear Sagittarius, and you may too find yourself in motion, making connections, mingling, and perhaps a little scattered! You’re drawn to lively settings and people, as well as interesting ideas. You may be taking on the role of advisor, mediator, or teacher. You can be feeling some inner restlessness that, if left unchecked, could lead you to push boundaries, however. You might be dealing with financial worries, but it’s probably better not to decide on practical matters until your thinking is more impartial and objective. Rise above your fears of change so that growth can happen. If your drive towards reaching a goal is putting too much pressure on you, recognize the need to pace yourself. A situation may arise today that requires cutting your losses so that you can move on.


With the Moon heading into your resources sector, dear Capricorn, you can be drawn to activities that ground you. This helps you to find happiness in what you already have, which is a valuable life strategy! Mind you, Pluto, currently transiting your sign, is challenged today, which suggests the need to slow down and avoid hanging on so tightly to your goals that you end up stressing yourself out. It can be challenging to pour special love and attention into your goals when personal matters seem to occupy a large chunk of your time now. You may be struggling with a fear of missing out when you apply your energies to the tasks at hand. The tendency can be to want to do it all, but there is only so much time in a day! Avoid taking on so much that you don’t get a chance to enjoy what you’re doing.


With the Moon heading into your sign today, dear Aquarius, you can feel a strong desire to turn over a new leaf. Today is about increased self-awareness as well as putting your needs first. Your emotions need a ready outlet, even if this seems to conflict with your professional goals. Look for creative ways to attend to both your need for emotional renewal and attention to goals and ambitions. Also today, a Pluto-Ceres challenge suggests an inner conflict as you waver between wanting to keep to yourself or cling to the past and wanting to learn, connect, and share. Keep in mind that some of the frustrations you are currently facing can help you to redefine yourself in a positive way, and allow the process to unfold rather than attempt to push things too fast. Pace yourself as much as possible.


The Moon moves into the sign just behind yours, dear Pisces, and this can bring on the need for some form of retreat or break. You need some extra personal space or time to think, process, and digest recent experiences and feelings. Circumstances may be such that you are better off functioning behind the scenes just for a couple of days as you wind down a lunar cycle. With a Pluto-Ceres square active today, however, tensions might arise with someone over issues of sharing or power dynamics, and timing in your relationships can be a little off. Part of this may be that you fear missing something important in your social life, and this keeps you a little too attached or always “on” when you need some quiet. An urgent desire to get ahead is likely part of this, but do consider that you need to pace yourself to perform at your best.
