Daily Horoscopes for Thursday, October 10th

Dreams that clash with reality set us up to have such high expectations that we end up disappointed in ourselves or someone we love. The Moon enters practical Capricorn at 11:17 am EDT, urging us to mistrust our feelings since they’re as unstable as the shifting desert sands. Normally, common sense prevails but our desires are intensified as romantic Venus squares idealistic Neptune, magnifying the fantasy factor in our attractions to others.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Your words are as smooth as silk today and you can use them to spin fantastic stories to support your goals. Your visions sound real to others as you describe your plan or try to persuade someone to join your cause. However, treading carefully is wise because you could convince yourself that you are right, even if you’re missing the point. Telling everyone what to do might just work out okay if you consider the needs of the whole community and not just yours alone.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

You can’t turn off the flow of fantasies that are springing forth from your imagination today but, thankfully, you’re still aware of what you can do with your visions. Your idealism enriches your day by bringing an endless supply of creative material, but this stream of thoughts or pictures could also distract you from the real work at hand. Escaping into dreams might not seem productive, but using them for motivation is a wise move now.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

You’re not interested in beating around the bush now; you want to say whatever’s necessary to justify your position. Nevertheless, you are afraid of hurting someone’s feelings, so you might approach the situation tentatively. Fortunately, you’re pleasantly surprised by the feedback you receive that clears the way for constructive conversations. Keep all your facts straight today, because a faulty assumption can turn a spirited discussion into a comedy of misunderstandings.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Sharing your emotions with someone you trust at work might not be on your agenda today, but something may stimulate a strong reaction, prompting you to share your perspective. Unfortunately, once you start talking, you could inadvertently say too much. Thankfully, it’s easy to prevent an awkward situation by simply considering the consequences of your words before you open your mouth. Be smart and tailor your message to your audience.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

Your creative spirit is flowing strongly today, whether you are working hard or simply enjoying yourself. You might not want to plan too many details of your day, since each activity slips dreamily into the next one. But you have to stay on your toes because your emotions allow you to be easily misled now. Verbal communication could be the source of confusion, so carefully observe what others do before trusting what they say. Actions speak louder than words.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your inflated hopes about a gathering of family or friends can run into trouble if you harbor unrealistic expectations about those closest to you. Unfortunately, your current penchant for dreaming could turn a perfectly sensible idea into a major fiasco. As tempted as you are to expand on a sentimental theme, it’s smarter to keep your plans simple and the drama to a minimum. All you need is love.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You are the master of illusion today as your key planet Venus squares surreal Neptune. Listening to your intuition usually works to your advantage when you’re dealing with someone’s unresolved feelings. Your diplomatic skills naturally assist you in influencing others with your fair-minded perspective. But keep in mind that your imagination can lead you down the wrong path now if you lose sight of reality. Thankfully, paying attention to the facts enables you to create a lasting positive impact.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Relationship dynamics may be confusing today if someone is quick to hide his or her true feelings. It’s challenging to know what others want unless you are willing to climb out on a limb and ask them. This tactic sounds straightforward enough, yet you might end up hearing a lot more than you ever wanted to know. Nevertheless, you’ll feel better once you learn the truth and then honestly share what’s on your mind as well. An open dialogue cultivates trust.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The power of your convictions should be enough to carry someone else through an episode of low self-esteem. The smartest reaction to today’s uncertainty is to figure out exactly what you know as quickly as possible and then talk about what can be done to clarify the issues. Don’t be afraid of looking ahead; the bold actions you take now set the pace for your friends and family. Blaze your own path and others will happily follow.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Your schedule may keep you busier than you ever imagined today, even if you were planning on less activity rather than more. However, the current noise in your life might seem worse than it actually is because you cannot turn off the stream of creative thoughts and unconventional feelings. Remembering that you don’t always need to be in control of everything allows you to enjoy every moment for exactly what it is. Go with the flow and see where it takes you.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You might think you’re fully aware of what’s best for everyone else today, and would like to be acknowledged for your altruistic behavior. However, your spiritual ideals may be incongruent with other people’s expectations. Fortunately, you won’t have to choose one over the other. If you muster up enough courage to talk about how your inner desires conflict with your responsibilities, you can achieve satisfaction on both fronts.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

You have a long list of chores that could be left over from earlier in the week, but you may feel unsure of your ability to accomplish much today, anyhow. The best strategy to deal with your current concerns is to concentrate on fulfilling your social and professional obligations as soon as possible. Your doubts will ease once you start crossing items off your to-do list. Fortunately, you can indulge in the pursuit of pleasure once you have made tangible progress.
