CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Wait a few more days and you may enjoy a pleasant surprise. Once you recognize your desires, you should find someone who is willing to discuss ways to create lasting happiness. Don’t make promises today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A partner or loved one may be just as concerned about financial security as you. There might be too many demands on shared resources now. Do not panic because things should be clearer once you get finances organized.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Someone may need extra support now. Even the best plans on paper can fail when put into action unless you start by separating facts from fantasy. Get advice from a trusted mentor before signing contracts.
IF SEPT. 29 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Make your mark during the upcoming three to four weeks while you have Lady Luck on your side. Your judgment is likely better than usual and you may have access to sound advice if you launch key plans. You may receive recognition for your accomplishments. Embrace an opportunity that comes along because even if it is not what you want, it could be just what you need. Your imagination can run wild in early November, giving you an advantage within creative fields while your romantic side may enjoy more quality time with a loved one, perhaps on a short vacation. Your business sense might be excellent in December and early January when you can successfully set crucial financial plans into motion. In late January, a new romantic attachment may have hidden drawbacks and you could see only what you want to see. Don’t let yourself be misled or misinformed.
