Your Stars This Week for October 15, 2017

ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- What you see isn't likely to be what you get, at least during the first part of the week. It's your own expectations that are out of sync. (April 5-April 19) -- You may have had difficulty when sounding others for information, but this week you should get what you need by asking simple, direct questions.

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may have a run-in with someone who isn't willing to yield to your rational approach. You must prepare yourself for a fight. (May 6-May 20) -- Giving another what he or she wants may be the answer on one or two occasions, but you don't want to make a habit out of it. You must know where to draw the line.

GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may feel quite far from someone who has helped you find your center in the past, so it will be up to you this week to center yourself! (June 7-June 20) -- You may find, after examining all contingencies, that you will be able to grant someone else a favor with little or no impact to your own carefully laid plans.

CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- What goes on all around you this week will have you changing your mind again and again, but ultimately you may revert to your original thinking. (July 8-July 22) -- Focus on what you know, and all things will align correctly this week. If you let yourself be drawn into something foreign, much may be overturned.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You can learn a great deal about someone new, provided you do what you can to see the world from his or her point of view. Don't impose your own! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- There is much you want to do this week, and much you have to do, so you'll want to spend your time as wisely as possible to satisfy your needs and desires.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- If you find yourself at cross-purposes with someone you work with, do what you can to ease tensions. Start by assuming he or she is right! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You can't be afraid of environmental influences, and this week there are likely to be many. Do what you can to rid yourself of any false assumptions.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You'll want to share new information with those closest to you as soon as you receive it this week. Delays can prove hazardous. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Your own needs and desires may clash this week, and you may find yourself wishing you could be in two places at once. A loved one helps you sort things out.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You will have to take a more proactive stance throughout the week, as you help reduce friction between two warring factions. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You'll want others to come to you with ideas and suggestions, but what is really in it for them? Make it clear that you will make it worth their while.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You'll have a story to tell this week when all is said and done -- but don't be premature in the telling of it. Final details matter! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may be stopped in your tracks at least once this week by someone you never expected to encounter. This helps you prepare for future surprises.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may have to beg someone to make concessions for you after you realize that the current state of affairs is not for you. Be honest. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may not appreciate another's attempts to take advantage of you this week, but you'll soon be ready to face a likely challenge any time it arises.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You're pushed to the limit today by one who doesn't understand how busy your duties make you, but there may be no remedy for this just now. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may find yourself grappling with certain issues that you thought had been dealt with permanently some time ago. Did you drop the ball?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- There are certain ways you'll have to do things this week, but on at least two occasions you'll have the freedom to improvise. (March 6-March 20) -- Are you qualified to do what someone is expecting you to do? If the answer is no, you'll want to make that clear sooner rather than later!
