LEO: October 1-7 Wednesday, October 1
In June 2012, a U.S. Senator introduced a bill that would require all members of Congress to actually read or listen to a reading of any bill before voting on it. The proposal has been in limbo ever since, and it’s unlikely it’ll ever be treated seriously. I’m confused – shouldn’t it be a fundamental requirement for all lawmakers know what’s in the laws they pass? Don’t make a similar error. Understand exactly what you’re getting into, whether it’s a new agreement, interesting invitation or tempting opportunity. Be thoroughly informed.
VIRGO: October 1-7 Wednesday, October 1
Oliver Evans (1755-1819) was a prolific Virgo inventor who had brilliant ideas for steam engines, urban gas lighting, refrigeration and automated machines. He made a radical prediction: “The time will come when people will travel in stages moved by steam engines, almost as fast as birds fly, 15 or 20 miles an hour.” We may be surprised that a visionary innovator like Evans dramatically minimized any future possibilities. In the same way, later in your life, you may laugh at how much you’re underestimating future potentials now. Stop underestimating.
LIBRA: October 1-7 Wednesday, October 1
When Jimmy Fallon was a high school senior, he got a weird graduation gift: a troll doll, one of those plastic figurines with frizzy, brightly colored hair. Around the same time, his mother urged him to enter an upcoming comedy contest at a nearby club. Jimmy thought it would be fun. He worked up a routine imitating various celebrities auditioning to become a spokesperson for troll dolls.
SCORPIO: October 1-7 Wednesday, October 1
Dear So-Called Astrologer: Your horoscopes are worse than useless. Mostly they’re crammed with philosophical and poetic crap that doesn’t apply to my daily life. Please cut way back on the fancy metaphors. Just let me know if there’s money or love or trouble coming – like what regular horoscopes say! — Skeptical Scorpio.
SAGITTARIUS: October 1-7 Wednesday, October 1
Tomatoes are a staple of Italian cuisine now, but there weren’t any tomatoes in Europe until the 16th century, when Spanish explorers brought them from Central and South America. Likewise, Malaysia has become a major producer of rubber, but it had no rubber trees until seeds were smuggled out of Brazil in the 19th century.
CAPRICORN: October 1-7 Wednesday, October 1
Years ago, you experienced an event so overwhelming, you couldn’t fully deal, let alone understand. All this time, it’s been simmering and smoldering in the depths of your unconscious mind, emitting ghostly steam and smoke even as it’s remained difficult to integrate. That changes in the months ahead. You finally find a way to bring it to conscious awareness and explore with courage and grace.
AQUARIUS: October 1-7 Wednesday, October 1
It’s prime time to do things not exactly easy and relaxing, but not actually painful. Like: Extend peace offerings to adversaries. Seek reconciliation with valuable resources from which you’ve been separated and potential allies from whom you’ve become alienated.
PISCES: October 1-7 Wednesday, October 1
Your oracle is built around epigrams of conceptual artist Jenny Holzer. From her hundreds of pithy quotes, here are six offering wisdom you need. Weave them into a symphonic whole. 1). “It’s crucial to have an active fantasy life.” 2). “Ensure your life stays in flux.” 3). “I have every kind of thought, and that is no embarrassment.” 4). “Animalism is perfectly healthy.” 5). “Finding extreme pleasure makes you a better person if you’re careful about what thrills you.” 6). “Listen when your body talks.”
TAURUS: Oct. 29-Nov. 4 Wednesday, October 29
It’s urgent that you expand your options. Your freedom of choice can’t lead you to where you need to go until you have more possibilities to choose from. In fact, you’re better off not making a decision until you have a wider selection.
GEMINI: Oct. 29-Nov. 4 Wednesday, October 29
In an episode of the animated sci-fi TV sitcom Futurama, Leela, the mutant spaceship captain, develops an odd boil on her hindquarters. It has a face and can sing. The actor who provides the vocals for the animated boil’s outpouring of song is Gemini comedian Craig Ferguson, whose main gig is serving as host of a late-night TV talk show on CBS. Telling you this tale is my way of suggesting that you consider going outside your usual niche, as Craig Ferguson did, to offer your talents in a different context.
