The well-known psychiatrist Alfred Adler, who was born in Vienna, believed that man is motivated primarily by social urges. That label certainly fits the Libra.
This Venus-ruled sign is totally involved in social urges such as having friends, maintaining relationships and most of all of having a partner.
A Libra born this week not only wants a partner, they need a partner. Although other signs of the Zodiac may be able to survive alone, this is not part of the agenda of the Libra.
Libra lives life the best in a partnership. They do not feel life is good without someone to share it with.
A Libra makes a great diplomat, mediator and counselor. They are able to see both sides and have the ability to understand and bring people together. This ability stems from their love of justice and harmony.
People born this week: Nicky Hilton, Oct. 5, 1983; Carole Lombard, Oct. 6, 1908; Yo-Yo Ma, Oct. 7, 1955; Nick Cannon, Oct. 8, 1980; Sharon Osbourne, Oct. 9, 1952; Mario Lopez, Oct. 10, 1973; Eleanor Roosevelt, Oct. 11, 1884; and Hugh Jackman, Oct. 12, 1968.
Good day this week will be Wednesday, Oct. 10 before 5:40 p.m. when the moon will go void of course. But the early morning and afternoon hours will be just perfect to undertake major projects by either finishing them up or getting started. Early notice: Mercury will go retrograde on Nov. 6 at 6:40 p.m. and remain retro until 5:48 p.m. Nov. 26. There will be a solar eclipse in Scorpio during the time of the new moon on Nov. 13.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) If you wish to accomplish the best you can do, then the perfect time has arrived and you might be smart to take advantage of it. If you have learned anything at all in the past two years, then now is the time to apply the lessons to your life’s work. Make it happen and the time to start is now.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) With visions of gold dancing in your head and heart the time has arrived to get started. A pal could suggest a new direction. Just make sure that is the way you want to go and then start. Relationships can wait a bit while you tend to your own dreams and goals. Avoid any more delays if you can.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) We all wish for the right time to arrive and for Gemini the time is here. The only way you can fail now is to ignore the opportunity staring you right in the face. You can make your ideas work with some hard work and just a little bit of money. So unless you have no goals at all, you should be working on the big career moment.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) Any anger you have been dealing with must go. It is holding back your success. It is time to make some smart decisions and the first decision should be to let to of anger of any kind. It is not in your best interest. Can’t let go? Then your next step is to understand who is at fault.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) Your serious side is showing and that is very good. You need to take advantage of your basic leadership skills and move forward with your life. Take your pick: stay with the drama brewing around you or ignore it and make yourself look good. Keep doing what you love and let others do the same.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Although you faced some challenges in the past few weeks, you are now in the driver’s seat or should be. If you are not, then get there and keep control of your life. When you do that, there is no way you can’t win the game you are now playing. It means more money and power.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) Life should be taking on a glow in your neighborhood. Both at home and work you are the person in charge. And since you know what you are doing, the success you crave is just around the corner. Now that Saturn is out of Libra, your health and finances should improve.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) Order and logic are your needs right now. After all, Saturn is now in Scorpio for a couple of years and so there will be demands on your time and talent. If you have been working toward the big break, it is about to arrive. Stay alert so you don’t miss it. Your love life will also get a good kick.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Get started on your latest project and do all you can to make it a success. Just avoid overspending. You are headed in the right direction but slow down and don’t get rattled. If you get rattled, you won’t win the game. Stay calm and you can’t lose. An old pal could help.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) If you have been doing your usual hard work and checked all details of your latest projects, then you are on the golden road. But if you try cutting corners, expect some problems. Listen to some of the good advice you are getting and continue the challenge. Just check the details closely.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Changing direction is always a challenge. But when you hit a brick wall you must make some adjustments. You will be happy about your decisions within a week. Try concentrating on your needs and let others do the same. Remember no one can solve all the problems at once.
Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) If you can’t decide what to do, then do nothing. Neptune, which is now in Pisces, sometimes creates confusion, but it also brings great creative thoughts. So now it would be wise to follow your creative life. It is a time when dreams could come true. So hook into your creativity.
