A little more fun in your life now is a good thing.
Love - Romantic
Your sign is known for its practical concerns in everything, including love. This month, however, you're being asked to throw a little caution to the wind as affection takes center stage. On the 6th and 7th, you're both toying with a new flirtation. Whether this includes suggestive texts at work or little notes you leave around the house, you're having fun with it. On the 10th, try not to withhold love if your partner does something annoying. It's not on purpose. Quietly explain why it doesn't work for you and move on. By the 11th, 12th, and 13th, you're on a whirlwind ride, as several astrological aspects line up to bring luck, love, and tons of creativity. Even if you've been together forever, you're enjoying a fresh new start. Single Caps can take advantage of the energy around the 15th, 16th, and 17th, when their sexual energy is at an all-time high. With a little effort, you're pulling in lots of potentially great matches. On the 23rd, love and sex align for the perfect balance. This continues around the 25th and 26th, as your affection for one another may have you reconsidering your life plan in favor of a new direction. In typical fashion, you'll take your time in deciding.
Business - Money
In October you reap the harvest of the fruits of the Earth that put the future practically in your pocket. However, the temptation exists to make improvements. Hint: some things can be enriched but others use valuable energy in trying to perfect perfection. Bear in mind some things do not need fine-tuning and refinement. On the 6th 'creativity' is the keyword. This includes creating time and choosing what is necessary to do with it, like brainstorming for example. Last week served you well because one thing led to another... like the something new that surfaces between the 15th and 16th. Your lucky days are Sunday the 18th and the 19th. Both days are auspicious for job-hunting. And resumes should be sent. On the 20th and 21st you are back to research. Center investigation around patterns in your current job, your last one, and the one before that. They are similar now. The 23rd you'll see an example of those who know things don't talk, and if they talk too much, they don't know. The 27th and 28th, valuable 'earthy' dialogue returns. The words "I respect your opinion" leaves the door open to chat some more. You'll find that important in November when sound advice is forthcoming.
