TODAY: In the interests of not devoting your energies to squeezing blood from stones, or engaging in acts generally considered to be futile: Being willing to recognize those aspects of an arrangement that are keeping it (and perhaps you) from fulfilling its/your potential - and then being of a mind to take steps even if procedural changes are entailed - would be an excellent place to begin.
YOUR BIRTHDAY: There's no question that you're on the right track for personal, creative or professional advancement. However, should you discover that matters are slightly more complex than you'd thought (or been led to believe), thereby affecting your official timetable for turning the company, situation, relationship, project, etc. around: Rather than arguing the toss, second-guessing your judgment or disregarding the info, work on adjusting your official timetable instead.

Planetary machinations underscore the fact that there are outstanding issues that do require your attention if you're going to arrive at creative solutions. And, pretending that you don't hear the hoofbeats of the posse off in the distance is neither the most brilliant maneuver nor the highest and best use of your time.
TaurusWednesday, October 22, 2014
If you're of the mind that your life would be improved by a different creative enterprise, a new puppy, a boy/girlfriend, a trade-in for your current boy/girlfriend, a Hummer, a country retreat, a bigger apartment, a(nother) child, a work of art, a rescue kitty, not necessarily in the order: Don't just stand there. Do something about acquiring it!
GeminiWednesday, October 22, 2014
Consider carefully prior to staking your reputation on a program or plan that is, uh, flawed (or could put you at a disadvantage) or continuing to beaver away at an enterprise or relationship that no longer serves you. At the risk of sounding trite, you must surely have better things to do with your time and energy.
CancerWednesday, October 22, 2014
On certain occasions you gotta do what you want to do, not what somebody else seems to want you to do. And, since this appears to be one of them, think twice before agreeing to dump your agenda, recipe, artistic direction, hair color, etc. to satisfy another person - no matter how loudly they squawk or compelling their argument.
LeoWednesday, October 22, 2014
The lord/lady doth protest too much alert ... If you keep dissing and dissenting, it will soon become clear to anyone who's paying attention (and even to people who aren't!) that you are the fly in the ointment, or at the very least are apparently more invested in maintaining the (inefficient) status quo than doing something about it.
VirgoWednesday, October 22, 2014
Ahem. If you insist on maintaining systems or routines that aren't in your interests (even though you can justify, rationalize or just plain like them): It will soon become apparent that you (despite your smooth-tongued explanations and sleight-of-hand tricks designed to deflect the focus from you or your actions) are the one who doesn't want them to change.
LibraWednesday, October 22, 2014
Yeah, well... There could be several conflicting obligations, needs, or demands on the personal, family, or partnership front that anybody in their right mind would find difficult to reconcile. And while it may seem appealing to find a nice sand dune to shove your head into, you're encouraged to come up with a different plan of attack.
ScorpioWednesday, October 22, 2014
Just as Father (ostensibly) Knew Best, and you knew better than to take him on, these planets believe that they know best - or at least what's good for you and your long-term emotional health. Plus, they have no real intention of allowing you to continue in a situation that is giving you less than your fair share.
SagittariusWednesday, October 22, 2014
Remember the one about pride goeth-ing before a fall. And, if there's any possibility that an arrangement can be salvaged, altered or improved by relaxing your rules regarding the way it "has to" be before you would even consider the proposition, perhaps you should consider relaxing your rules regarding the way it "has to" be.
CapricornWednesday, October 22, 2014
If you aren't entranced by the offer or proposition, just (graciously) say no. Moreover, try to manage any urge to dictate your terms. Everyone is slightly bewitched, bothered and bewildered on the grounds that they're not convinced their needs will ever be met if they continue on their current path. And, they'll gladly project it onto you.
AquariusWednesday, October 22, 2014
Lumbering right along here ... Any struggles, fights, debates, or conflicts currently occurring have a hidden agenda, namely that they're intended to launch you out of inefficient structures, set-ups or arrangements. Yes indeed, even if they are familiar and even if, at this juncture, the idea of relinquishing them (or some portion thereof) is highly repellent to you.
PiscesWednesday, October 22, 2014
Plot your course and then execute it. True, that sounds blunt, but at present, saying that you're going to do something and then doing it is the cure to whatever ails - in addition to being far more effective than the alternative... i.e. saying, not doing; not saying, not doing; not saying, doing; thinking about it endlessly, etc.
