Cosmic Gossip for October 2008

Linda Merlino


Libra hates to disagree. This is the peacekeeper and supreme diplomat. When confronted Libra will weigh all sides. Like the Scales of Justice, Libra prefers to play fair. Blessed with the gift of harmony this sign can ooze charm right down to the dimple of his or her chin.

Libra folk love being married. Seldom will we find a Libra without a partner by choice. The perfect match for a Libra is another Libra or an air sign (Gemini or Aquarius). These are best for meeting Libra's needs. If a Libra and a Libra are mated the down side is their chronic inability to make up two minds. Perennial fence sitters, Libra will forego action to avoid a decision.

It is difficult not to love a Libra. Ruled by the love planet Venus, he or she is delicious and most often very nice to look at. If you are wise, you will keep your Libra partner away from large gatherings. Libra feels suffocated by crowds. Keep your plans for romance in the table-for-two category with tickets to the theater, an art exhibit or something civilized. Libra dislikes crude and distasteful surroundings. Please learn to agree even when it is through gritted teeth.

Never forget that your Libra mate prefers your company to anyone else and that he or she will reward a lover with sweet kisses and all the "we things" of life.

SKY WATCH: Mercury is dancing backwards as the month begins but changes direction on the 16th. When this happens communication will ease up and that feeling of having to repeat or being misunderstood begins to disappear.

This is Breast Cancer Awareness Month...please be sure you or someone you love is getting screened for this disease. People across our great country are uniting to fight-the-fight, join with us to make breast cancer a thing of the past.

ARIES ((March 21-April 20) Aries would do well to rehash some one-to-one issues the first two weeks of the month and then put your words to good use. Saying is not always doing and this month you will have the opportunity to speak of things from the past, let go and move forward. Cosmic Advice: Mid-month you might want to travel or sign up for a class. Broadening the mind will keep you from imploding.

TAURUS (April 21-May 20) Taurus has issues at work and with co-workers that need to be addressed, again. Use the first two weeks of the month to iron this out. Once you work through the prickly stuff you will be able to be understood without question. Cosmic Advice: There is lots of activity in partnership. Most of what transpires these days has to do with others. Except for using your common sense day-to-day you will be at the mercy of another person. Self-expression may seem stilted but that is the responsible side of you trying not to laugh out loud.

GEMINI (May 20-June 21) Gemini should use the first two weeks of the month to practice in front of a mirror. Watch yourself when you speak, be sure you smile and look directly into your eyes. This preparation is for what you need to be ready for mid-month. By then the mirror will be a real audience. If you did your homework expect applause. Cosmic Advice: Your day-today world is very busy; this suites your Gemini soul. Take what you earned the first few weeks of the month and share it with a partner. Cosmic Advice: The latter part of the month will see Gemini juggling relationship. The power of love is strong and you got the power.

CANCER (June 22-July 22) Cancer might do best to keep the lines of communication open at home. Even if you are traveling be sure that you can access your home phone. Messages will be left that repeat and repeat. Maybe you need to delete, delete. Once Mercury dances forward you can expect things to come to a stop. Perhaps your callers will begin to get the message...the one you didn't send...silence is a good answer in this case. Cosmic Advice: None of this means that you can't have fun or say what is on your mind. Just be sure you do it after mid-month and face-to-face. There is someone at work or whom you see daily whose heart is a flutter for little old you.

LEO (July 23-August 22) Leo feels very protective of his or her resources. You can spend the first few weeks of the month repeating this sad story but your audience has a short attention span. Mid-month you must change the subject. How about thanking everyone who lent you their ear. Cosmic Advice: Stay active at home, put this to good use. Dress up the ranch and then later in the month throw a costume party. Leo loves to entertain, what better month to throw a bash then Halloween?

VIRGO (August 23-September 22) Virgo must maintain an air of responsibility no matter what the predications are this month or for the next several to come. Putting your money where your mouth is should say it all for October. Talk the talk, then walk the walk right to the bank. Cosmic Advice: Busy community activity and interactions with siblings may at times hit some rough spots. The bumps are padded early in the month. Latter you can invite whoever is still talking to you over for dessert.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22) Libra has been self promoting like crazy, but not too many folk have gotten the message. This frustrating dilemma continues until Mercury goes direct. Mid-month you will still be talking about how you did this or that, and the only thing that will change is one or two people will listen. Money is there to be made and spent. This will be how it seems the first two weeks of October. Cosmic Advice: A shift will come mid-month and that will find you helping out siblings or someone close enough to be like family. Don't feel guilty about saying no over yes; if it is no in your head then say it.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21) Scorpio has a mind full of unsaid statements. You are on overload. Most of what you are carrying around can be dumped. Do this by the middle of the month; after that refresh your list making and carry over only a few ideas. Cosmic Advice: No one knows any of this except you. For appearances sake you appear in charge and exceptionally put together. If only all those folk knew the real you. Your finances are undergoing some major changes. This is in its final stages. Soon the wheel-of-fortune will stop and reality will begin. So spin again while you have the chance.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21) Sagittarius has been sorting out the future and retooling his or her goals. This worthy task needs to be done every so many thousands of life miles. The Mercury backward dance is all about you redefining your future. You've come so far on your path that your goals do need an update. Some of you might not feel energized this month. Being tired is likely. This comes from treading water for the past fourteen years. Cosmic Advice: You will soon be able to swim to shore, as a matter of fact you can see land and it is close. Once on dry ground you will undergo a personal rejuvenation. Bravo.

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19) Capricorn has spent much time recently on his or her public self image. There have been stacks of redundant messages sent out by mouth, by mail, by internet and you are frustrated by the response. Have faith. Mid-month the ship will begin to go forward. Keep some headache meds handy as you are not out of the woods yet. Cosmic Advice: Friends and organizations have benefited from your input. This deserves recognition. Mid-month you can park all that and recharge.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18) Aquarius has been enlightened. Always one step ahead of everybody else you know when to hold them and when to fold them. In this gin game of life you have been holding a hand that has the potential to win the pot. You appear to the public to be in a good place and perhaps there are some who are jealous. Don't be too quick to show them your hand. Cosmic Advice: The power is in who you know and you have built up a reserve of important contacts. This is your ace in the hole.

PISCES (February 19-March 20) Pisces can't control what others do and perhaps that is best anyway. You can offer advice the way you've been doing and continue to do that until mid-month. After that tell any and all who will listen that you are done giving free advice. You can preach the message of faith and a better world. Pisces has the power to make a difference in the big picture. Cosmic Advice: This power is fleeting. Use this time wisely.
