CELEBRITY BIRTHDAY

Troy Aikman turns 45 on Monday. The former Dallas Cowboy quarterback still makes headlines, whether for his divorce this year or the continued rumors that he’s gay. In September, he threatened to assault the man behind the rumor, Skip Bayless, on a local radio show and the comments went viral. Let’s not forget, he also has three Super Bowl rings.

THIS WEEK

Mercury is turning retrograde and there’s a solar eclipse, all in Sagittarius. Be open-minded and patient. New information will make you change your mind about important matters, though it may take weeks to figure out.

…………………..

SCORPIO  Oct 23-Nov 21
Arguments at work easily get out of hand and cost you big time. Keep conversations calm and open-minded while focused on finding solutions. Take time for fun with friends to stay in balance.

SAGITTARIUS  Nov 22-Dec 20
Birthday plans are sure to go awry. Roll with the punches. With Mercury turning retrograde in your sign it seems you do nothing right. Keep a sense of humor while cleaning up mistakes.

CAPRICORN  Dec 21-Jan 19
Being generous to those in need boosts your reputation and even your career. Feeling beautiful and confident can start a row at home. Clear the air, try a daring, new solution and move on.

AQUARIUS  Jan 20-Feb 18
Your future plans need revision. Those changes challenge your associations. Be ready to change some of those. Don’t commit to those revisions, but take time to think them through.

PISCES  Feb 19-Mar 19
Professional advice helps you clear up snafus. More mix-ups make success look further away than ever. Balancing humor with responsibility, you can solve them and advance.

ARIES  Mar 20-Apr 19
While you are feeling energetic, the rest of the world seems to be gumming up. Beware of rash outbursts. You will be heard more than you know, so think carefully about what you want to say.

TAURUS  Apr 20-May 20
A person can get enough flirtation and sexual adventures. A sudden realization about what you really want in that department can bring focus as you turn to more serious matters.

GEMINI  May 21-Jun 20
These next three weeks will have you backtracking and cleaning up. You’ll be reminded of neglected promises. Take complaints seriously and make no excuses or retorts.

CANCER  Jun 21-Jul 22
Sudden changes in your health are for the better, but consult a professional and review your exercise regimens. Focus on what you enjoy most about work. Colleagues will pick up on it

LEO  Jul 23-Aug 22
Your playfulness and creative efforts make huge impacts on your work. That’s not a good thing. Are they a constructive focus or a frivolous distraction? Channel that energy productively to go far.

VIRGO  Aug 23-Sep 22
Neglected problems at home will blow up in your face. Think carefully and deal. Flawed efforts are better than none. Consider carefully any corrections offered by roommates or family.

LIBRA  Sep 23-Oct 22
A homecoming offers some rude surprises. Take them in good humor and learn from them. An opportunity to heal a wounded relationship may require some changes in your routines.
