October 17: Your daily horoscope


Your circumstances will alter considerably over the next 12 months. You will be forced to reassess your priorities, sometimes on a daily basis. Strive to be flexible. Always be ready to move in a new direction. Change is good for you.

ARIES (March 21 – April 20):

The more you do for friends and work colleagues today the more they will do for you later on, and on balance you will come out ahead of the game. Is that selfish? Maybe, but it's a higher kind of selfishness.

TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):

Your task today is to focus all your attention and all your energy in a single direction. Don't let your concentration stray for even a moment. You can achieve something extraordinary, but you've got to be single-minded.

GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):

Good things are going to happen over the next two or three days. Anything of a creative, romantic or artistic nature is under excellent stars at the moment, so don't hold back: Give it all you've got.

CANCER (June 22 – July 23):

This is the ideal time to let partners and loved ones know how much you care for them. The Sun in the domestic area of your chart makes it easy for you to reveal your innermost thoughts and feelings.

LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):

Get out into the world and have a good time. Meet as many interesting new people as you possibly can. Don't worry about your work – it will still be there waiting for you when you get back – IF you get back!

VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):

You want to buy yourself lots of pretty things, no matter how much they cost. But can you afford it? Don't spend up to your credit limit now and spend the rest of the year living on bread and water.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):

Make the most of the opportunities that come your way over the next few days. If you don't, you will hate yourself for being too slow and indecisive. Find the courage to take the kind of risks most people avoid.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):

You need to decide what is going to be your No. 1 aim, and you need to get after it today and every day until you have reached your ultimate goal. What moves you? What inspires you? Go for it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):

The more you work with those who share your aims and ideals the more of a positive effect you will have on the world around you – and the more fun you will have too. The two aims are not mutually exclusive.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):

You are about to be tested and challenged like never before. Do you have what it takes to confront your inner demons? Do you have the strength to battle them and overcome them? Of course you do.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):

You have got to stand up for what you believe. Unless you are clear in your own mind what it is that's worth fighting for, you won't be able to persuade others to fight for it too. They need you to lead.

PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):

There seems to be a lot of deception and trickery going on at the moment, so it will pay you to be on your guard. Anyone who promises you the world for a small investment is either mad or bad – or both.
