Your daily horoscopes for Friday October 6, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Friday October 6
A little nurturing goes a long way today, Aries, so drop the tough-love stance and tune in to the emotions brewing below the surface. Your advice, no matter how brilliant, will not penetrate until you validate people’s feelings. Listening to them vent isn’t the same as buying into their sob stories. The empathetic approach lets you off the hook too (phew!). After all, it’s a whole lot easier to nod, cluck compassionately and brew tea than it is to try to brainstorm the ultimate solution to another person’s issues.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Friday October 6
There’s a time and place for getting in the middle, and this is it, Taurus. Your job today is to be the great balancer, holding tense situations in a state of equilibrium. Your ability to see both sides of an argument makes you the perfect person to negotiate a peace treaty. The hardest part will be keeping your opinions in check. Showing the slightest ounce of favor to one party will throw the whole process out of whack.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Friday October 6
A penny saved is a penny earned. Today’s austere lunar energy curbs your spending sprees. Tuck away extra cash for a more important predilection than the impulsive lure that captivates you today. It’s a good day to start a special savings account for the bigger purchase that’s looming. Have funds auto-transferred to this account on a weekly basis, and before you know it—boom! The luxe items on your wish list will be funded and paid off.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Friday October 6
Add a pinch of glam and a dash of celebutante to the recipe today. With the moon in Cancer, you actually want to be noticed—and appreciated for all that you have to offer. The rule of “when you look good, you feel good” definitely applies, but it doesn’t stop there. Subtle self-promotion goes a long way to wake people up to what you’re capable of. Make sure your name is properly stamped on your efforts so no one else can take credit for your work.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Friday October 6
Ego check! True friends are the ones who tell you what you NEED to hear, not what you WANT to hear, Leo. Although flattery may be easier for you to swallow, you don’t need anyone blowing sunshine where the sun don’t shine, if you know what we mean. Ask your most candid friends for their feedback today. Their critiques will only serve to make your work stronger. This advice cuts both ways. When someone asks for your honest opinion, be compassionate but speak your truth.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Friday October 6
There are billions of people on the planet, which by extension means there are billions of opinions floating around. So why is it that you keep radaring in on the most critical estimations out there? Today, find the love instead of gravitating to the haters. You might even discover that you’ve been taking your adoring fans for granted, Virgo. If so, show them some gratitude to keep their unwavering support flowing in your life.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Friday October 6
The call for leadership has been sounded. Someone’s gotta seize command and steer that ship—and today, that’s you. If you want to be taken seriously, Libra, let people see the capable, authoritative side of your personality. Just don’t lose your sense of humor in the process. You can take charge without slipping into the bossy mother hen role. Treat your allies as competent adults instead of misbehaving children. Ordering them around will only create friction, but asking them for input will strengthen your bonds.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Friday October 6
It’s a #nofilters kind of day for you, thanks to the moon in your outspoken ninth house. But temper your truth with tact, Scorpio. Even if your assessments are spot-on, it’s your delivery that will determine everything. It’s easy to come across as righteous or imperious, which could be destructive to an important relationship. Slip into the other person’s stilettos before you condemn her for a misstep. Remember: You might be wobbly on your feet if you had to walk that path yourself. An attitude of gratitude keeps relationships in balance.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Friday October 6
Be careful not to take too many freebies today, Sagittarius. There’s always a price tag, even if it isn’t a monetary one. You might decline someone’s generous offer, knowing that you’d be better off paying for it yourself instead of being endlessly indebted to your “benefactor.” Are you one fancy vacation away from drowning in debt? If you’ve been too liberal with your spending, today’s planets tighten up that belt. Remind yourself of this: Delayed gratification builds character!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Friday October 6
To solidify your good standing in a group, don’t try to win everyone over all at once. Instead, radar in on individual members, nurturing relationships one by one. You might start with the “low-hanging fruit” and work your way up the branches from there. Look around: Who are the people who are obviously enamored with the oh-so-fabulous you? Give them some love today, and your buzz will quickly spread through the ranks.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Friday October 6
Working harder, not smarter? Today’s Cancer moon helps you streamline your processes and simplify your strategy. While it’s fine to map out grander goals for the long term, reel yourself in to the present moment to avoid an “Aquarius plans, the universe laughs” fumble. When you stop stretching for something that’s far from your reach, you might just discover a magical option that’s been sitting right under your nose. And as it turns out, this selection has been staring you in the face all along. Oh, hi!
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Friday October 6
The squeaky wheel gets the oil, Pisces, so stop suffering in silence. You might have to throw a small fit to get your point across today, letting people see just how upsetting the issue truly is. Use this approach judiciously though, and only in cases where you’re truly bent out of shape about what’s happening. Getting a rep for crying wolf is not the outcome you wish to create. In most instances, simply being direct about the problem will do the trick.
