Today’s Birthday (Oct. 24).
You’re part idealist, part strategist. That’s a perfect combination this year. The problem you’re facing requires both. Being an idealist forces you to learn more in order to accomplish what you want. Being a strategist helps you arrange and edit what you’re learning so that it’s useful. It also keeps you from forgetting what your goal was in the first place.

Aries (March 21-April 19) –
Today is an 8 – A grandiose scheme you and your friends put together needs work. It needs money, too. Luckily, you’re creative. If you put your heads together, you can solve any problem, but it may take until tomorrow.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) –
Today is a 6 – Take a moment to reflect on what you’ve achieved and what you’d like to accomplish next. Would you like to take on more responsibility? Get rid of some? Formulate your plan.
Gemini (May 21-June 21) –
Today is a 9 – A distant contact can help you make a dream come true. You can learn something you’ve always wanted to know but were afraid to ask about. Something that was unintelligible is about to start making sense. Keep pestering one who knows.
Cancer (June 22-July 22) –
Today is a 6 – Hustle and bustle around. Fix what you can and throw out what you can’t. Go shopping and buy new stuff. You’ve put up with enough over the years. Wherever possible, stop putting up with it.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) –
Today is a 7 – You’d like to do everything just to make sure it’s done right. However, this noble aspiration is impractical. It’s much wiser to find an experienced person to take over some of your tasks – now.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) –
Today is a 7 – Looks like your workload is increasing. Did you take on a new assignment? Does it sound like fun? How about that raise you were promised? If it doesn’t show up on its own, ask. Same goes for the extra work.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct 22) –
Today is a 9 – You’re cruising at top speed again. Watch out, world! Romance could temporarily clash with your business objectives, though. Just remember not to be late returning from breaks and lunch, and you’ll continue to win in both business and pleasure.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) –
Today is a 6 – Keep a low profile. Take care of domestic issues, with the objective of settling into a workable routine. If something at home needs fixing, get it done. If a roommate has a complaint, listen. You might find a way to fix that, too.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) –
Today is an 8 – Did you know that Sagittarius is one of the signs representing higher education? Another is Aquarius, which is where the moon is now. That might explain your growing curiosity. The problem you’re trying to solve is beyond your old capabilities, so stretch yourself.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) –
Today is a 7 – Now is the time to increase your wealth. You’ve done the groundwork already. Just ask.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) –
Today is an 8 – Your loved ones have faith that you’ll succeed, but you may wonder at times. Sometimes each person’s greatest talent can also be the area where he or she has the most difficulty. The key to success isn’t talent; it’s persistence. You have a double dose of that, and you will prevail.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) –
Today is a 7 – Time to wrap up a domestic project. If you push, you can finish tomorrow. Give yourself that much time, because things won’t go according to plan.
