  Daily stars for today 23 October 2014

It’s easy to blame everything that goes wrong on Mercury’s retrograde cycle, which it is now and will be until this Saturday. However, it accents ideas, and communication and the resulting plans. It has nothing to do with others’ lack of judgement, no matter how much they wish that were the case.

  Your stars for the week beginning 19 October 2014

The secret to dealing with this unsettling but ultimately profitable period is to listen sympathetically to others` stories about their dramas, but stop there. Offer neither suggestions nor take the conversation further. While this may seem antisocial, if not unkind, with Mercury retrograde in Libra, those errors can be amazingly informative, about past issues and possibilities for the future. Invite others to join you in exploring these.

  Your monthly stars for October

Although the Libra New Moon, on 24 September, casts numerous perplexing situations in a fresh perspective, it`s too early to commit to plans. Between the actual circumstances involved shifting and your own questions, you`ll change your mind often, and so will others. The trick is to view October as a journey in which your understanding of circumstances grows. If you must commit, ensure arrangements are flexible. This will allow you to proceed with plans while focusing on exploration and what you can learn.

  Your year to come 2014

When making decisions, you’ll usually compare notes with those who’re involved, especially those whose opinions you respect, then weigh up your options. Yet with impatient Mars, planet of ego, in Libra from early December of 2013 until 26 July of this year, you’ll need to think and move swiftly. This may lead to mistakes and sometimes even upset others but, oddly, those mishaps prove more informative than careful discussion. You’re feeling driven, creative and adventurous, but can sometimes be demanding or even unreasonable. This leads to taking chances, broadening your horizons. The resulting changes reshape your life, activities and goals, yet make you feel more excited about life than for ages. Love and Relationships Ordinarily you’re devoted to maintaining harmony in close relationships, personal, romantic and professional. Yet during 2014, especially around the Libra eclipsed Full Moon on 15 April, there’ll be confusion, conflict and sudden changes. The resulting frank discussions, which extend throughout the year, achieve miracles. Finances and Work Last year you realised you need to think carefully about how you use your resources: your money, but also your time, efforts and even ideas. Now you realise it’s also about demanding what’s fair for what you do, and not just at work. Health and Well Being With so much change, establishing a routine won’t be easy. Instead of following a strictly healthy way of eating or gym regime, make looking after yourself a part of this year of growth. Experimenting, with both dining and fitness, will prove amazingly informative.
