Daily Horoscope for Tuesday Oct. 31, 2006

Note to Readers. My colleague Yasmin Boland has had a child and is on maternity leave. I'm taking turns some weeks standing in for her daily column. These horoscopes are being posted to our subscribers as well. This is the second of three sets, which runs through Friday.

Aries (March 20-April 19)
It's interesting the ways in which we tend to blame others for our own internal blocks or insecurities. Any time we attempt to anticipate the feelings of someone else and respond in advance by changing our behaviour, we are basically doing just that. This is the supposedly easy substitute for communication, which falsely relieves us of the responsibility of responding to our own feelings and really listening to the feelings of others. The stars, planets and common sense suggest you do much more of both -- and reap the benefits more ways than you imagined.
Taurus (April 19-May 20)
As you have seen, perception changes everything. How you feel determines how you see the world. To some extent, maybe even a large one, the world is also influencing you, including shaping your state of mind. Notice that it always seems easier, at first, to change your circumstances rather than change your perceptions. To change what you see, of course, you would need to trust what you perceive, and that, for several odd reasons, may prove to be difficult for the next few weeks. Still, there's no excuse for not paying attention.
Gemini (May 20-June 21)
We could ask: what is true? You may be wondering about this over the next few weeks, and I suggest the answer is simple: what is true for you counts the most right now. And therein is the quest: what, in truth, is true for you? How do you go about finding out? In a word, experience. These days, every step you take has the power to widen your world. So what if the things that seemed to be pure, distilled facts last week amount to so much Coca-Cola this week? In the end, you will make the discoveries you need to make.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You may feel you're trapped in circumstances beyond your control. Look and you'll see that circumstances are definitely outside your influence, but that you're surely not trapped. This is the whole point. You are free, but often the best way to figure out this is true is by having one of those panicked moments where you feel absolutely unable to direct the course of your own destiny. This exercise should last a few hours at worst, and will be worth a brief interval of potential frustration and anxiety. Just remember to wiggle, rather than kick and scream.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23)
If everything is always changing, what can you count on? Well, you remain the constant factor in the equation, and from that space, you tend to attract people who are devoted to you. This should not be so difficult and there are times when you make it look easy. These days, you may be making it look easier than it is, but you know what you're learning. By being open to any possibility, you open yourself up to it manifesting. By being willing to change, you naturally do so, and lacking resistance, you can live in harmony with the world around you.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22)
There are two basic energies in the air right now: one is a somewhat shocking and provocative psychic quality, and the other is a gentle, penetrating sense of contact. As a Virgo, you are a beneficiary of the second type of energy right now, which is giving you a rare chance to put together the pieces of a life that seemed to have been scattered on the floor for many years. Assemble them gently, and remember what your life looks like on the inside as you work your way toward the outer layers. Remember what all the seemingly different things have in common.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23)
What you have experienced is something collective. It feels personal, but if you'll notice, a partner is going through much the same thing. And it's not just something between you and this person; it's an issue shared by everyone in the Western world. There will be power in owning this fact, that is, strength as opposed to weakness and awareness as opposed to sleeping through existence. Everyone is pretty much in the same situation, though the circumstances differ a little -- and we have a lot to learn from knowing that we're not alone.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Change comes in spurts. However, those great waves and pulses of transformational energy are generally made possible by the sustained effort we put into relationships, personal development and awareness. Even if the effect of all that work is just being present for when something genuinely meaningful helps us transition into a new place, I would say the work has done its job. You're in the process of coming through a truly significant leap of evolution. Just make sure to keep going approximately the same way that led you here. Don't stop -- persist.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22)
For many people, life is a struggle to stay awake. Indeed, except for the rare and woefully few people whose awareness, curiosity and intelligence are what they live and thrive on, most people go through life like zombies. You tend to be one of the conscious, but you now need techniques for moving information and ideas from deep in the basement of your mind up to the first floor. Basically, any method you dedicate to the task will work, as long as it somehow involves recording your images, observations or data, from digital video to a charcoal sketchbook; writing on a napkin to a leather-bound journal.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20)
The key to taking advantage of the current transits works something like considering yourself a different person. That is, take out one of your sub-personalities or alter egos: not the responsible citizen or effective manager; not the devoted student or the clear-headed teacher. Try one like Queen of Heaven, whose role is to offer pleasure to whomever you wish. Or Easy Rider, heading off in search of the spirit of the world. Experiment with being a special operative for love and understanding. This will give you direct access to the flow of good karma clearly coming your way.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19)
The Moon working its way through your birth sign is reminding you of some compromises you've made in recent years, which you now seem determined to undo. Don't worry if you don't quite have the solution set to this somewhat complicated equation. You are well on the way to getting there. Remember that in the end, all equations must balance, so you might want to look around in your world for where certain imbalances exist. Here is a clue from the astrology: begin working on the easiest one, then go for the next.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
As someone who is different who knows you're different, and lives like you're different, you need people close to you who know the same thing about themselves. Do yourself a huge favour and forget the sleeping, the slumbering and those who spend their precious days chewing their cud. You are operating at full strength right now and you're drawing people toward you like a magnet -- people who have something to offer you, and those who view you as a dependable source of nourishment in the world. Take it all in, and give it all you've got.
