Georgia Nicols horoscopes – October 2014

How have the stars aligned for you this month, according to Georgia Nicols

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is the only time all year when the Sun is opposite your sign, which means you will need more sleep. Why? The Sun is your source of energy and if it is opposite your sign, it is as far away from you as it gets all year. Respect this need for more rest. In addition, this oppositional Sun will give you a better understanding about your relationships with partners and close friends. It’s true that conflict is more likely, but even conflict can help you examine your way of communicating. Work with others. This is not a time to go it alone.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This month you want to get better organized. Make lists and think how to de-clutter your home and tidy where you work. Since you’re on this kick, get the right tools to do a great job! Buy labels, shelving, file folders, cleaning equipment, paint or whatever you need to make the most of this one-month influence. “Make hay while the Sun shines!” Naturally, this efficiency kick makes you want to boost your health as well. Plan to eat better, lose weight, get more exercise – the whole nine yards!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Lucky you! Fun and pleasure are on the menu because the Sun will be in your Fifth House. You have lots of energy to get out and have fun. Do what pleases you whether it’s sports, movies, parties, the arts, musical performances or expressing your creative talents. The bottom line is you want to enjoy yourself! Explore playful activities with children. Take a vacation. Flirtations, love affairs, romance and fun dating will increase. Life is easier if your pleasures are affordable. “I’ll take two!”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is the only time of the year when the Sun at the bottom of your chart, which makes you focus on your personal life, especially your family and where you live. You will feel more comfortable at home and in familiar surroundings. You might enjoy solitude, meditation, discussions with family members about the bad old days, and anything that takes you down memory lane. It can be a time of self-evaluation, and almost certainly, a time when discussions with parents or the memory of parents will be significant.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This month the Sun ushers in a time of busy activity for Leos. Your schedule will be jam-packed with short trips, errands, visits with others, discussions with siblings and relatives and a bustling daily pace. (Gasp!) Mars guarantees playful, flirtatious fun-loving times. And Venus will help you boost your earnings plus shop for treasures for yourself and loved ones. (“I’ve got my big girl panties on and I’m goin’ to town!”)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your focus is now on money and possessions but at a deeper level, you’re thinking about your life values. Are these values in the right priority? You don’t want to be at the end of your life thinking, “I blew it!” Your values determine your decisions, and your decisions create your future. So it’s important to know which values are worthwhile. This month, think about these things, plus moneymaking ideas and how to deal with the stuff you own. In every sense of the word, you want to get the most bang for your buck!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Happy Birthday! The Sun has returned to your sign for the first time in a year giving you a chance to recharge your batteries. You will feel energized, enthusiastic and proactive! Naturally, you will project yourself more forcefully on the world around you and attract favourable circumstances and people to you. All of this means you are in the driver’s seat – so why not make the most of it? Use your energy to finish things you’ve been meaning to do. (Look good when you go out because you are sure to meet ex-partners and old friends.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This month you want to hide in the wings. You want the safety of a comfortable, private place where you can view the world going by so that you can assess things. Venus will guarantee that you are still schmoozing with friends and Jupiter will put your name “out there.” Nevertheless, act on your desire to withdraw from the busyness of life. Use this time to strategize and plan what you want your new year (birthday to birthday) to be all about. “Got a plan, Stan?”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This month focus on friends, groups, clubs and associations. Enjoy schmoozing with others. Friendships will be important. Examine your friends to see if you want them in your life. It’s important that you can be who you truly are with others. This is also the time to give thought to your goals and future objectives. It will benefit you to share your dreams for the future with others because their feedback will help you. Meanwhile, romance with someone older or in a position of authority might begin.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Now the Sun is acting like a spotlight on you, making others notice you, especially bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. And this light is flattering! Since you look good to others, they will ask you to take on increased responsibilities. Just say yes. Have no worries because you will shine in their eyes! Travel for pleasure is also another option this month. Someone will help you by giving you the money, assistance or opportunity to explore more of your world. Again – just say yes!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Suddenly, you are keen to learn more and discover things — foreign countries, higher education, travel, and anything that allows you to expand your world. Explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. Talk to people from other backgrounds and different cultures. These things will enrich and enhance your world. And yes, people will give you gifts and money and do favours for you. Your intellect will be stimulated and you will have a grander view of life.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Now you feel passionately about everything! (One obvious area will be sex.) All your relationships will be intense. In fact, you will feel intensely about shared property, inheritances, insurance matters and anything you share with someone else. Someone might challenge your values? Nevertheless, relations with partners will be smooth because Venus is opposite your sign; and Mars at the top of your chart arouses your ambition and makes you want to go for the brass ring!
