Aries (March 21-April 19)

When you value what you have, others will, too. Your property (intellectual or physical) could net you a hefty profit. Be willing to sell to the highest bidder. Your timing couldn't be better.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Still afraid of creating a spectacle, you are tempted to remain quiet. However, going forward halfway or halfheartedly will only make you feel small. Go all the way with your whole heart, regardless of who will see.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)

The stars align to remind you that enemies are a part of your team, just as friends are. That person who makes you notice your weaknesses is a stronger motivating force than any other you'll encounter today.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)

Doing your own thing is admirable, but if three people tell you there's something in your teeth, it's time to look in the mirror. Listen to the cues the universe provides. It won't be hard. They're not subtle.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your money circulates at top velocity -- you've spent it before you've made it, and that's nothing to feel guilty about. If you didn't want so much, you wouldn't be motivated to work as hard.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Name-dropping is so Hollywood. Yet it works. You'll need to let people know you are serious and legitimate -- your ideas deserve respect. If you can't find someone else to talk you up, you'll have to do the talking yourself.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23)

Your most ambitious aim is reachable if you let go of any force that opposes it. Someone who does things you no longer agree with must be kept in his proper place -- away from you or anyone/anything dear to you.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21)

In your desire to get where you want to go, you may accidentally turn a deaf ear to good advice. Your trusted mentors, friends and family won't steer you wrong if you remember to tune in.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

New sources of positive energy are available. (Darn, you say . . . I wish she'd written, "New sources of money are available.") Believe it -- positive energy is more precious than gold.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Someone will say no to you. Accept it quickly, without rebuttal, surprise or disappointment. This answer will prove to be one of the best things that has happened to you all month.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You're still not sure you have what it takes. True, you have too much of some elements and not enough of others. But somehow strengths compensate for weaknesses, and you get through with a great deal of grace!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Become a bigger fan of yourself. You'll need more bravado to make the most of the opportunities presented to you this week. Practice talking about yourself in favorable terms.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY OCT. 23: This year, you'll get what you want and more by sticking to your principles. Your love life improves with your confidence next month. You receive attractive propositions in the 10 weeks. A December event cinches your financial destiny. Many singles are married in February. Your relationships with Cancer and Taurus people are quite magical.
