Your Daily Horoscopes for Wednesday, October 5th

We are motivated to hold on to everything that’s safe and secure in our personal worlds as the conservative Capricorn Moon reminds us of the benefits of stability. However, the Moon’s shift into intellectual Aquarius at 11:17 am EDT encourages us to set aside our fears of the unknown and to embrace the future. Additionally, the Moon’s supportive sextile to progressive Uranus helps us feel more comfortable with the ever-increasing speed of change.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

It’s difficult for you to focus on your day-to-day affairs now when your life contains so much uncertainty. You’re typically confident about what you are doing, but questions arise today that increase your doubt over the general direction of your life. However, focusing on your long-term goals may be a clever way to escape from your more immediate obligations. Do what you Aries are known for best and concentrate on being in the present moment.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

You may be involved in a continuing conflict between your job and more personal activities that truly express what’s in your heart. But it’s challenging to put your efforts on a path that’s closer to your passion when you are being rewarded monetarily for the professional work you do. Instead of choosing one over the other, find ways to bring new life into your creative endeavors through self-discipline. Practicing time management should enable you to juggle your calendar and do everything you want.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

Although the Moon in your 9th House of Higher Education may have you thinking about going back to school or beginning a new course of study, you could have to delay your decision for a little while. More pressing obligations can’t be ignored and must be handled before returning to your long-term plans. Instead of worrying about what you can’t do now, take life a few days at a time until you’re free enough to imagine what’s ahead.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

If somebody presents you with a sensible plan today, remain open to it instead of just assuming that your idea is better. It’s presumptuous to think that you can make a real assessment unless you actually take time to consider what you are shown. Don’t let your fear of being wrong get in the way of your best course of action. It’s more important to reach your goals than to be right.

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your job can help to take your mind off a recent conflict in your personal life. However, it’s crucial to concentrate all of your attention on your career objectives today in order to shift your thinking. Backing away from an intense argument won’t solve the underlying issues, but it will give the energy a chance to settle back down so you can approach the unresolved predicament anew later on.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

You tend to overcompensate for your uncertainty today by acting as if you know exactly what’s going on and what should be done next. You really want to be perceived as someone who is competent, but your overly authoritative manner may not help your cause. Don’t dwell on previous failures now, for your memories can stand between you and success. Remember, the past is over and may not be as relevant in the present moment as you believe.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are tired of having to act in such a responsible manner now, and are willing to take a risk and do something just for the fun of it. Unfortunately, declaring yourself free from prior obligations isn’t as satisfying as actually living up to your promises. Take the time early in the day to work hard and make progress on your chores so you can cut loose for a while later on.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Something that you recently decided to keep to yourself may become an issue now in a relationship. You might realize that you would have been wise to just be fully honest and to share whatever uncertainties you were hiding. Unfortunately, you cannot turn back the hands of time and redo what’s been done. Your best bet is to start fresh in the present moment by clearing the air before moving on.

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

You don’t like it when your peers put pressure on you to do something you’re not willing to do. In fact, you like it even less when workmates attempt to take advantage of you, asking you to help them with chores they should have already completed. Remember, in both cases, the decision is entirely yours. Either jump in fully without complaining, or say exactly what you’re thinking and prepare to deal with the consequences.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

You can easily underestimate the amount of time and energy it will take to finish a project today. Unfortunately, this can have a profoundly negative impact on your schedule. Simply working harder might be the best strategy to avoid looking like a fool on the job, but putting in additional hours won’t necessarily solve the problem. Don’t exhaust yourself in a hopeless attempt to impress others. Instead, rethink your tactics and adopt a smarter approach.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You are driven to understand what’s happening today, but the Moon’s return to your sign can make you so emotional that your rational approach doesn’t work. It’s tricky because your answers might appear so straightforward and rational. However, your thinking is all over the map now, making it nearly impossible to follow through on any one idea. Instead of trying to work it out on your own, ask for help to minimize any subsequent problems.

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You may be tired of isolating yourself from others and are finally ready to do something about it. However, you might not be clear about how best to heal a rift between you and a friend. Rather than opening the discussion with a know-it-all attitude, admit that you don’t have all the answers. Revealing your vulnerability may be the most sensible way to bridge the gap.
