Your Stars This Week by Stella Wilder

Your Stars This Week For October 20, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You'll realize quickly that you are on your own for much of the week. This shouldn't displease you, as you will be afforded much leeway as you get work done. (April 5-April 19) -- Take care that you don't overlook the obvious this week as you tend to those things that are more hidden from view. You'll want to give someone what she needs.

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You must approach problems that arise in the same way that you approach situations that are routine and expected. Your calm confidence will do the trick. (May 6-May 20) -- You are in no need of positive feedback this week, as confidence is high and you are doing what you know how to do. Be sure to accept praise if you receive it, however!

GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You are interested in what others are doing, surely, but their methods and motives aren't connected to yours at this time. You're free to do as you will. (June 7-June 20) -- You know how to get a great deal done -- and look good while doing it, too. You're an expert at combining style and substance; this can surely be your week as a result.

CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Take care that you don't let your emotions dictate your actions this week -- especially since you're likely to face at least one highly emotional situation. (July 8-July 22) -- You have only so much time in which to accomplish certain things this week, and you must jump at any opportunity that presents itself. Keep your eye on the clock.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You will want to pay close attention to the bottom line this week. You may not benefit directly, but there are those who will thank you for your expertise. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Early in the week you are likely to make certain observations that will drive your decision-making process later on -- and you may not even know that it is happening.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may not want to join forces with someone just because there is safety in numbers. You're willing to take some very serious risks this week. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- There is time for you to try something new this week, but you mustn't neglect those routine tasks that enable you to stay competitive. You can do many things at once.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- A surprise encounter is likely to open up your mind to possibilities you've not considered. This can be a turning point -- but don't leave everything behind. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You can be quite cool under almost all circumstances this week. In fact, the more serious the emergency, the more likely you will be to face it with style.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You're going to have to combine careful thought with keen instincts this week -- especially as you deal with those who don't understand what burdens you bear. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may be tempted to insert yourself into a situation that was not of your making, but this can only make things worse. You'll get the whole story soon; be patient.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Others are likely to gravitate toward you all week long, but not for the reasons you think. The reality will surprise you when it is revealed. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You are not one for casual interaction this week; you have far too much to do to spend time on that which is not substantial. Stick to that which wins you results!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- An opportunity that presents itself this week may never come around again, and you are eager to see where it can lead. Be ready to make some quick decisions. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be tempted to do things in a way that sends certain signals to the powers that be, but is that really what you want to do? Try staying under the radar this week.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may have to travel far this week to get what you consider yours by rights. You'll encounter obstacles, surely -- and at least one personal challenge. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- A surprise has you second-guessing yourself this week, but you surely don't want to drop what you should be doing to take up something that may not be for you. Be smart!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You should find it easier than expected this week to stay on track, but take care that you don't overlook one key difficulty as the weekend approaches. (March 6-March 20) -- You may be surprised to feel a little out of sorts this week, when you had expected to feel settled and confident after making a change in your daily life.
