Your Stars This Week by Stella Wilder

Your Stars This Week For October 18, 2020

ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may be in charge of getting the right information to the right people this week -- and doing so will require you to do a few things in an unusual manner. (April 5-April 19) -- The more you try to explain an unusual development in a logical manner, the more likely you will be to move further and further from the truth. Accept appearances!

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may think you know all the ins and outs of a certain issue as the week begins, but soon you'll want to check in with a superior just to make sure. (May 6-May 20) -- You aren't likely to deal well with unexpected developments this week, though you can surely make positive adjustments when your behavior is pointed out by another.

GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Others may think that what you are trying to do will prove useless when all is said and done, but the fact is that it will be of great value almost immediately. (June 7-June 20) -- Say what must be said and do what must be done, but know that there are those who will hold you accountable -- even though you are responding to necessity.

CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You are able to pinpoint the exact cause of your own behavior consistently throughout the week -- but that doesn't mean it's right or excusable! (July 8-July 22) -- You're going to have to make mistakes this week in order to learn how to do certain things better. Others will follow in your footsteps, so you must make things very clear.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You'll have the chance to give another a piece of advice that you would have benefited from some time ago. Don't be high and mighty, however. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Your sense of what is right may be shifting slightly at this time, and you'll find yourself called upon to make one or two unusual decisions that put this to the test.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may have to share the power this week with someone whose skills complement your own. Together, you can get things done in a memorable fashion! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You're not going to want to correct yourself -- or anyone else -- as you go this week. Wait until all has been completed to begin your honest appraisal.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- This is a good week to gather forces and plan for a new assault on a goal that has only recently taken shape. The pace can pick up very quickly. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Showering others with what you most want is perhaps the best way to get it for yourself. Your generosity will shine as a beacon, and others will be invited to follow that light.

SCORPIO (Oct. 22-Nov. 7) -- If it's profit you're after, you must first decide what form it will take. You can certainly benefit greatly this week, though not necessarily financially. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- The more you mix and mingle with those whose thoughts and beliefs differ from your own this week, the more you'll prepare yourself for a challenge you must soon face.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Shock value has a place, but this week you'll want to approach major issues in quite the opposite way. Keep surprises to a minimum; work with others. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may not be thinking along the lines of those who are "in charge," but that doesn't mean your ideas are not valid. Indeed, you can contribute much of great value.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You can give a great deal to someone this week -- and enjoy handsome returns on your initial investment when the time comes. Don't be impatient. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You'll want to keep up with others today, but that doesn't mean you won't have the chance to move ahead. Indeed, the decision to do so may be made for you at one point.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You're in no mood for conflict today, especially with those who have been compatriots in the past. Yes, things are different, but they needn't be combative. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- That which you are most trying to avoid is likely to be ever-present this week, so why not try, instead of running away, turning and facing this challenge head-on?

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Personal growth can be quite startling this week, especially if you are willing to separate yourself from the crowd and explore new options on your own. (March 6-March 20) -- You may find that you're one or two steps behind where you hoped you would be at this time, but you'll have more than one opportunity this week to catch up!
