Today’s Birthday(Oct. 9).
This is the year you go to modeling school, or boot camp. You get to learn how to do everything perfectly, which fork to use for salad, how to iron a dress shirt properly, how to curtsy or salute. The good news is, you’ll be an even more gracious lady or gentleman than before, so don’t complain. Get into it!To get the advantage, check the day’s rating: 10 is the easiest day, 0 the most challenging.

Aries (March 21-April 19) –
Today is a 5 – Others may be pushing you to take quick action, but you’d better be cautious. If what you hear doesn’t quite make sense, use your own better judgment. Don’t let someone else’s mistake get you into a mess.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) –
Today is a 7 – You’ve had your attention on business lately. A loved one may be feeling neglected. Make up for it with a special treat. Don’t try to explain what you’ve been going through. A special meal shared together will express your love better.

Gemini (May 21-June 21) –
Today is a 6 – If you’re laying the groundwork for a big deal, don’t get pushy. Find out what people want, and think of ways you could provide it. Do the preliminary work, but don’t rush. New developments tomorrow require further consideration.

(June 22-July 22) – Today is a 7 – No more Mr. Nice Guy (or Mrs. Nice Gal). You don’t like to be pushy, but your opinion matters, too. Somebody else has been freely expressing theirs, so why shouldn’t you?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) –
Today is a 6 – Are you obsessing about something? Possibly about whether you’re doing a tough job right? You always want to be the best, but it’s not easy when you’re getting conflicting orders. Don’t rush. They may change their minds again.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) –
Today is a 7 – A friend who’s asking for assistance needs advice, not a loan. This person has resources they haven’t even tapped yet. You can be more useful as an educator than you can be as a lending agency. Besides, your money has already been allocated.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct 22) –
Today is a 7 – If you’re having trouble getting along with a sensitive person, don’t push. Don’t bring up a controversial subject, either, if you can help it. You’re pretty direct, but you don’t need to be. Discretion is advised.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) –
Today is a 7 – You and your sweetheart or dear friend would like to have a luxurious outing, but is now the time? Not quite. There are still a couple of details to be checked off your list.Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) –
Today is a 6 – Time to get practical again. Tell your friends to meet you on Thursday or Friday. You have to take care of business now. Pay the bills. Buy the groceries. Schedule meetings for another time. The less said now, the better.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) –
Today is a 6 – Don’t ask for any favors. Bosses, parents and bureaucrats will be feeling more pressured than generous. It seems like there’s not enough to go around, though that just shows a lack of imagination. Offer encouragement and hold your criticism.

Aquarius(Jan. 20-Feb. 18) –
Today is a 9 – The assignments are starting to stack up, so pay attention. The new jobs are showing up before the old jobs are finished. Better get more efficient, and quickly. No more long phone calls to friends when you should be working!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) –
Today is a 7 – Your romantic evening should go very well. If a sensitive subject comes up, like money for example, let your sweetheart have his or her say. If you don’t try to fix it, it’ll heal all by itself.
