Horoscope: October 2, 2020


By Tamia Banks

A baby born today has a Sun in Libra and a Moon in Aries.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Oct. 2, 2020:
Witty, charming and very sensitive underneath, you are gifted verbally, and this year you say something profound through your work. You succeed where others fail. If single, only those close to you see your emotional vulnerability, so it takes a while to find your mate — until next year. If attached, you’re bound at the hip with a strong individual. Your love rises to new heights this year. SCORPIO wears you down.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19)


You will stir up the status quo just to relieve the tedium of daily life. You lead discussions and win debates using clever repartee. A great capacity for problem-solving is in evidence. Tonight: Brings a variety of important emails, phone calls and messages.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)


There is much brewing within you that companions can’t quite perceive. Friends are genuinely a blessing, but you will recognize the wisdom of keeping your own counsel. Be especially patient and subtle regarding love. Tonight: Early bedtime following a long bath.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)


Today brings a charming and attractive acquaintance into your social circle. Maintain a touch of reserve to make the best impression. Not your usual modus operandi, but it works so well in this case. Tonight: Circulate online and be receptive to love.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)


Today brings career opportunities. Endeavors begun now could turn out to be long-term and secure. Some of you will decide to take the plunge into something new. Power struggles with others might occur. Tonight: Changes occur that are beyond your conscious control.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)


Restlessness and impulse reign. Today isn’t the time for true “leisure” activities; get some exercise! Market yourself and your creative talents. Try to avoid conflict, which could easily arise with your mate or business partner. Tonight: Take a deep breath and proceed slowly.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)


Though planetary aspects are super for business matters and career, beware romantic indiscretions. Having fun could turn out to be costly in a variety of ways. Arguments and disagreements will undoubtedly arise. Tonight: Not a time to take financial risks.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)


Caution has been a keynote regarding commitments lately, with many of you wavering between taking a chance or holding back. Today could have you making that important decision. What seemed to be a mere fantasy could suddenly become reality. Tonight: Wonderment.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)


Day-to-day work routine, dealings with co-workers and your general health may be interrupted today. Smooth sailing is not likely. Your stomach is likely to be upset if you let it be. Take care and slow down. Tonight: Make that phone call.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)


Today will have you in the mood to celebrate, but don’t expect to overdo it and emerge unscathed the next day. You’ll feel like kicking up your heels and can use the energy profitably at the gym. Tonight: Someone new catches your eye.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)


Major life changes and transitions are in the wind. View this period as an opportunity for change, and don’t be afraid. You are entering into a new realm of existence, experiencing a virtual rebirth. Tonight: The planet of luck smiles upon your finances.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)


Although you might be feeling rather emotional, fortunate planetary aspects suggest you’ll be receiving good news, making happy plans, or just plain celebrating with friends. Don’t let anything put a damper on your thoughts. Tonight: The good far outweighs the negative.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)


Today is not good for large-scale spending, as you will most likely have to return what you’ve purchased. Mull over decisions as thoughts are cloudy and the mind a bit restless. You might not make much sense — even to yourself. Tonight: Relax.

Born today: Leader Mahatma Gandhi (1869), comedian Groucho Marx (1890), novelist Graham Greene (1904)
