Born on

October 1

The youthful sun encircled by the friendly stars is shedding light on areas you had written off earlier. Full of energy and enthusiasm, you are in a competitive mood and may undertake a new venture, but you should always remember this golden adage: ĎAnything well begun is half doneí. You will add charm to your life. All work and no play may wear you out during October-November. You must put the pep back into your life. March and April are your lucky months.

October 2

With a moon-Neptune combine, the year may demand constant hard work. Less comfort and more fatigue are in store for you. Donít push yourself too hard as you it might affect your health. The best course is to be selective and choosy to the core. January and February are tedious months. Your patience will be at test. Take care of your health during June and July. You will, however, put your daily affairs in order from August.

October 3

The retrograde Mars is waging a war against your finances. Expenditure at home and social life may go beyond your estimate. You should act with caution. Sit back and bide your time during the first quarter. Share your problems with your well wishers during the second. Check undue generosity during the third. You will save money during the end part.

October 4

You are ready to give a tough fight to those who are determined to spread rumours. Life is not as pleasant and smooth as you have envisaged. Time is not far off when you will act in an independent manner. You may have to work hard to persuade others to fall in line with your plans. The cooperation you need may not be up to the mark. You may have to bear the burden all by yourself. Profits can be made if you donít miss the right financial opportunities.

October 5

Financial pressures are about to ease. Professionally there is nothing you cannot achieve now. If you donít act now, you will be losing a golden opportunity. At home, you have no choice but to agree with whatever your partner says. There is every chance that events will move towards a positive direction. A hectic year ahead. Make sure you get enough rest.

October 6

Financial difficulty is a thing of the past now. It is time to be strong and sturdy. Nobody will interfere in your affairs. You will build up your reserves and see to it that your near ones follow it in letter and spirit. If you have been waiting for the right time to win over lovers, you will be able to impress them. Love can prove an expensive proposition to begin with, so stretch your budget to the limit. At work, employers will be happy with your efficiency and creativity.

October 7

You may face a long and arduous journey before the year rings in. A small risk taken in the beginning will turn out to be a blessing in disguise. At present, there are a few liabilities that are causing concern, but your aspirations are on the higher side. You will fail to hold out, if you cling on to a hackneyed path. As March gets underway, you will be amply stimulating your working capacity. You will discipline your life along sound lines.
