Horoscopes for Today

October 3, 2023

3/21 – 4/19

It’s a mixed day. Constructive influences should get you thinking positively about a work or school related matter. It will be easy to spot both the problem and the remedy, but other unsettling influences may have you feeling very reluctant to act on this knowledge. A piece of news could have you wavering!

4/20 – 5/20

Dreamy influences are likely to be distracting. Your imagination will be fired up, but your practical problem-solving skills may be a little lacking. There’s a slight tendency to overcomplicate matters or to read far too much into a situation. Work requires more attention today, while romance perhaps requires less!

5/21 – 6/20

Fraught lunar influences fade later in the day. It may be a problematic start, but gradual improvements should be encouraging enough to keep you going. Someone’s rather prickly attitude may be off-putting to begin with, but it won’t be too difficult to prove them wrong!

6/21 – 7/22

Supportive influences should open up the communication lines today. Minor worries can be put to rest, especially by the late afternoon. A healthy dose of clarity and common sense should help enormously too, while the evening’s influences should generate a warm and tender mood!

7/23 – 8/22

It’s a day of two halves. The morning may start with in a slight loss of nerve over a particular matter. Playing it safe is perhaps the way to go. It won’t generate any spectacular results, but it will bring peace of mind. The afternoon is easier, when cash matters could receive a minor boost!

8/23 – 9/22

Anxious feelings in the morning should give way to a sigh of relief in the afternoon. It could be that a decision goes your way, or that you find a way to turn a potential failure into a resounding success, but you will need to do your bit: a willingness to ‘get stuck in’ will be required from the start!

9/23 – 10/22

Librans can sometimes be regarded, unfairly, as dreamy types who waft through the day, preoccupied with trivial matters. However, today’s planets kind of support that view. A slight head-in-the- clouds approach is perhaps adorable for romance, but not for a home-related matter, which may need a very blunt and down-to- earth tactic!

10/23 – 11/21

This is not likely to be a dynamic day. The feeling that it’s back to the metaphorical grind-and-toil will be counterproductive, and a tendency to baulk at what will be fairly minor obstacles is likely to slow the pace down even more. Being a little less gloomy will help reverse this to a very large extent!

11/22 – 12/21

If you can resist the numerous temptations, such as spending too much time with friends, or spending too much at the mall, then today offers some excellent work or school based opportunities, which should come with an additional bonus of a little extra cash. That’s if you can get yourself out of fun-mode!

12/22 – 1/19

The planets are likely to assist smooth communications today. It should be one of those days where a great sense of timing and enhanced social graces paves the way for some impressive results. The only thing holding you back is lingering self- doubt, but a pushy friend’s advice should prove to be very useful!

1/20 – 2/18

Somber influences are likely to dent your confidence today. Even though there are planetary improvements in the afternoon, you may feel as though you’re getting nowhere. It’s not a great day to rethink any tricky situations: a tendency to undersell yourself will hamper progress. Wait a couple of days!

2/19 – 3/20

As with other signs, quick thinking and snap decisions will not be your strong point today, but in addition to this it’s possible that recent considerations for the future may suffer a temporary setback. Maybe it will be best to deal with this setback in a couple of days!
