Born on

October 5

You have been working hard and deserve a break. Your planets are still volatile and you may be heading towards another period of toil. A carefree attitude is your major drawback. If engaged in service, patience and hard work necessary to face a hard task-master employer. A modest attempt not be enough to deliver goods. It may weigh on your mind and could affect your health also. On the other hand, work pressures will not let up.

October 6

With the moon associated with Pluto, your offer for a patch up with a rude friend could be misunderstood. At this time reason may take a back seat. Verify facts before making a decision. The people who come into contact with you will be indifferent. Donít take them seriously. Proximity with such people could cost you heavily.

October 7

Libran Mars having gone combust, especially in the house of finance, is a liability. Expect the ensuing year to be financially problematic. You will be faced with many demands. Despite efforts to control your expenditure, spending will be a matter of concern for you. Too much travel could also prove expensive; entertainment of guests may also give a jot to your economy. In short, you will succeed only partially in sorting out your financial problems.

October 8

Exalted Mercury will putt you on a secure footing. With a high self-confidence, well-placed personal affairs and good your bank balance, you will be happy. Social encounters will help you gain popularity and experience. December may reward you for the your notable work. You will come across a new opportunity after May-June. July is however, a tardy month. You could be prone to bouts of indigestion and gastric ailments.

October 9

An overall assessment of your planetary position reveals disappointments. Time is inopportune for you to soar high. Your attempt to bid, shop or hunt for a good bargain may be unsatisfactory. Be cautious and donít take impulsive decisions. This is a period of trial. You will come across many good opportunities but it may be difficult to decide which is the best bet.

October 10

Your faith in your work should be high. Best time to solve complicated issues. You will come out of your shell and seek the cooperation of new people. Financially, too, this period is trouble free. With adequate resources at your disposal, lend a helping hand to friends and relatives who are financially weak. Your noble acts will be amply rewarded.

October 11

Being ambitious, you will opt for short-term gains. Your stars, however, warm you to be on your guard against such risky ventures. The desire to make a quick buck may backfire. Your financial stars look weak from the very start. March-April are tiresome months. June-July are good for outdoor life. It will be wrong on your part to live beyond your means. Your urge to socialise will increase during August. You will mix up with people more freely during the end part.
