Horoscope October 2008
Truth Lies Ahead
Expect outrageous lies as we approach the last weeks of Pluto in Sagittarius. Since 1994, we have been wading through a cosmic miasma of water and fire, creating a steam of expansive consciousness that often has little contact with reality. Some of the biggest whoppers will show up between now and Dec. 1. We have reached our gullibility saturation point. A new cycle for truth approaches.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Take all matters under consideration, but there are no solid decisions until next month. Though you feel pressed, setbacks and delays are in your favor. Be resourceful; you will see several opportunities for fiscal gains where a seductive presentation will be the dealmaker.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
So used to being a lone Eagle, you may not have noticed that a project or two could utilize the image of strong partnerships. You may be the 99 percent perspiration here, but you require the 1 percent inspiration to seal the deal. Ninety-nine percent of the work means 99 percent control. What’s important here?
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Restrictive edicts from higher-ups frustrate your efforts and are building a peppery attitude. Embrace obstacles and limitations as keys to a new level of proficiency. Delay gratification for greater glory, and realize that you are being scrutinized. Smile for the security cameras.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
What a stellar time this is for you. No selfish thoughts as you pillage the marketplace. It’s all about you being the smartest kid on the block. Make rock-solid decisions and begin to lead in an area where you are obviously head and shoulders above the rest. Don’t wait for approval; just do it. You’re ready.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Consult an associate whose strategy is always through security. You know those Scorpio types who think all are guilty until proven innocent? Listen to them now. In your egalitarian sense of the righteousness of it all, you missed a couple of holes in the parapet and ignored shaky integrity in a couple of swashbucklers.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Alliances have given their all for the moment, and it’s up to you to carry on solo. Good will is your most valuable asset now. What others think of your accomplishments creates the arena for further conquest. Public relations require a quiet intensity. There is power in withdrawal. Decisions about timing are crucial.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Wish there were two of you? Delegate. You have some trust issues with staff/vendors, but realize that it’s you not trusting your own choices in personnel. A great weight will lift when you let go. You are through with one level so you can begin another. The best service is worth its price.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
As the earth element encroaches on an overly fire period, the Bull approaches its dawn, where all is new and anything is possible. Are you traveling light? Don’t stop to linger over knickknacks of the past (an emotional drain that interferes with creativity). Fear of the unknown is paralysis. Leap, empty-handed, into the void.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Make a major improvement to the domestic arena. Amazing improvements to professional status may be created from the home front. Don’t get so excited you appear on the Web cam in your pajamas, but know your greatest coup could beam in as you take out the trash. Appreciate beauty.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
A partner’s resources are there for you, but expectations will only lead you into a maze of illusions. Know that alliances are supporting you more than ever, yet outward appearances deceive. Best efforts are behind the scenes; you are more effective by your absence sometimes. Meditations are intense.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Elitism does not have to be a negative concept. There are those who could actually pollute a project. In a spirit of self-honoring (preservation?) weed out those who would drain your valuable time with tawdry displays. Use the royal phrase “It amuseth me not” and banish them!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
A delay of funds is frustrating, but soon there will be a stronger bottom line. With financial fears come hasty decisions that may devalue your services. Get back to all proposals, giving yourself time to consider all the angles. Slower responses and time for consideration will accumulate respect. Firm decisions are obvious.
