October 24: Your daily horoscope
IF TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
You have known for some time that you need to strike out in a new direction. So why are you still in the same place? Make this the birthday when you finally take that big leap into the unknown. It won't be unknown for long.
ARIES (March 21 – April 20):
You are rarely subtle in the way you say things and today you will speak your mind without fear or favour. Leave others in no doubt at all that you are not amused by what has been going on of late.
TAURUS (April 21 – May 21):
Not everyone can live up to your exacting standards so make allowances for those whose efforts fall short of the mark. The quality you most need to develop is patience – it won't be easy but it can be done.
GEMINI (May 22 – June 21):
You need to slow down and take life at a more leisurely pace. The planets warn that mistakes will be made unless you think things through carefully over the next few days. Remember, your health always comes first.
CANCER (June 22 – July 23):
You have much to look forward to over the next few weeks, so don't waste time or energy on things that no longer matter. Whatever yesterday's problems were, it's time to put them out of your mind forever.
LEO (July 24 – Aug. 23):
Keep telling yourself that you are supposed to make mistakes and that it's not necessarily bad when things go wrong. The important thing now is that you learn from setbacks and make sure they don't happen again.
VIRGO (Aug. 24 – Sept. 23):
What someone is saying about you is designed to make you feel bad about yourself, but you don't have to play their silly game. You know what you are capable of. You are perfect just the way you are.
LIBRA (Sept. 24 – Oct. 23):
Find ways to streamline your daily routine so you have more time for personal matters such as affairs of the heart. Most likely you are doing things for other people that they should be doing for themselves. Enough is enough.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24 – Nov. 22):
Play by the rules and don't give your enemies an opportunity to catch you out. If you demand the highest standards of other people then, of course, they have the right to demand the highest standards of you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 – Dec. 21):
Someone who has a lot of charm will make a big impression on you today but are they as nice as they look? If your sixth sense tells you to be on your guard you would be wise to listen to it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 – Jan. 20):
Forget about tomorrow and focus on what you are supposed to be doing right now. Take each day as it comes and tackle a single task at a time. One small task completed is better than 10 big tasks left unfinished.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 – Feb. 19):
Stop worrying that the sky is about to fall – it isn't – and start doing the things that will make your existence more secure and enjoyable. For starters you should be pushing ahead with a creative project. Time's running out.
PISCES (Feb. 20 – Mar. 20):
A friend or loved one is in desperate need of cheering up and you are the one who can help. Make it your business to put the smile back on their face and, in doing so, your own worries will fade away too.
