October Horoscope

ARIES (March 21st to April 19th) For you this month will be one of consolidation. Your business interests will be paramount, almost to the possible exclusion of all else. This may not endear you to those who feel they have a call on your time, but that is the way of things just now. Try to reconcile these warring

factions, because you must not

neglect opportunities now, nor relationships for later on. Your health will give you few causes for concern but take care, there are things 'going around' you may be unaware of and which ought to receive some urgent attention quite soon. TAURUS (April 20th to May 20th) A moment or two stolen from your busy schedule will mean the difference between a happy and contented home atmosphere and domestic disruption. Either is possible and the choice is yours. Somewhere around the second week you may be called upon to lend support to an unusual cause. You must consider carefully before you espouse this because you do have other priorities. It could be of course you are beginning to tire of those priorities and would welcome an opportune change. Again, the choice is yours and one you must make firmly and irrevocably. GEMINI (May 21st to June 21st) Throughout this month you will be dogged by the feeling you have forgotten to attend to something vital. Try to resolve this because you will be unable to give fullest attention to other matters meantime. A relationship you value is starting to totter. This is not your fault, rather a change in personality of the other party. This is very much linked to age and maturity, so you must allow matters to take their natural course. If you proceed cautiously throughout, there is every possibility you will both emerge at the end of it all, better friends than ever.

CANCER (June 22nd to July 22nd) This month beware of

furtive characters

slipping casually into your life. You have openings all round that would allow them access, and every penetration would be a potential disaster. Financially this will be a rewarding time, surprisingly so under the circumstances. It will however be very easy to overstretch yourself where certain structural works are concerned, so be sure you get really good advice before you commence any alterations wherever you contemplate making them. Finally, take care where animals are concerned, there are a few contradictions regarding pets. LEO (July 23rd to August 22nd) You need time to recuperate your dissipated energies. The last couple of months have been enormously taxing, and the next will certainly be similar. Relax, get some rest and clear your mind, then you'll be ready for anything. Emotionally you could be in for a shock toward the end of the month. This is more a matter of you over-reacting than any pointer to the seriousness of the situation. Relaxation again will sort this out, and you should get to see it for the minor 'storm in a teacup', that it really is.

VIRGO (August 23rd to September 22nd) You are seriously going to have to curb your temper soon. You have a tendency to shout first and think afterwards, and it simply will not do because you could end up a social outcast. Try to put things into perspective by carefully assessing them before you lose your rag, it will be better for your blood pressure if nothing else! There is a point of fundamental disagreement twixt you and one dear to you. This could cause considerable family upset and heartache if it is not resolved amicably. Why not make the first move? You have nothing to lose and much to gain. LIBRA (September 23rd to October 23rd) There isn't a grain of truth in any of the rumours

you keep hearing. They are all designed to unsettle you to a certain extent. Your best bet is to immerse yourself in some other matter with which you are acquainted just now, and this will take your mind completely off such things. Try to watch your diet throughout the month. Over-indulgence will just upset your system and leave you less able to concentrate on the important aspects of life, all of which are being offered to you right now. SCORPIO (October 24th to November 22nd) Your preparations towards your next big move are all but complete, or they should be. If they are not, take it as an indication you are not ready to make the move. If you are ready however,

don't forget all those

small details that will make the next phase of your activities, that much more comfortable. It will be hard work so make extra efforts to organise accordingly. Some old and treasured friends are about to fade from your life as are some treasured possessions. Take comfort, friendships never really die if they are of the true sort, and possessions can be acquired from almost anywhere at any time! SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd to December 21st) A few sharp regrets may be your lot


month. This could be because you suspect deep down you made a precipitous move without sufficient forethought. This is not the fact, you did all you should have done, and what you are feeling now is nothing more or less than sadness at the passing of an era, a stage in your life that you have enjoyed immeasurably. Look forward, not back. There is much more yet for you to do and see and remaining where you were would never have given you the opportunities that are certainly on their way.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd to January 20th) To be quire honest with yourself, should be your main goal this month. You need to be absolutely sure of how you feel in certain situations. Then and only then will you be able to judge what your actions should be at any given moment. Financially this is essential, as you will be required

to make several

decisions regarding monetary reserves that could seriously affect your future comfort if miscalculated. A proposition of a radical nature could be put to you in the third week, and to be certain of making the right choice, put all the facts before a professional assessor. AQUARIUS (January 21st to February 19th) A formal declaration of your intentions should be sufficient to make your position clear to those who matter.

It will also set the scene

for you to show exactly where you stand on a political matter. Socially this could affect those friends who linger on the periphery of your circle, but they are relatively unimportant in your life anyway, so this should cause you no problems. Make sure of security matters in your home environment. You are in danger of losing some of your possessions and all because of a minor carelessness. A little forethought and preparation would easily prevent all that.

PISCES (February 20th to March 20th) This will be a month when your health will be of primary concern to you, though you are in fact quite healthy, all things considered. Try to get away from your home circle more often as you are inclined to become somewhat parochial in your outlook. There are signs you will be required to take on extra responsibilities and these must be catered for.

Although you may not wish to admit it, there is room and time in your life for something a little more intellectually taxing. Frankly it would be good for you to stretch yourself rather more than at present.

Album Review

Never Boring - By Freddie Mercury Late Queen singer Freddie Mercury's solo career will be chronicled on 11th October

with a new five-disc box set called Never Boring. The collection contains three CDs, a Blu-ray, a DVD and a 120-page 10”x10” hardback book of photos, many of them rare and unpublished, as well as what a press release describes as "thoughts and choice quotes" from Mercury. There's also an introduction by Rami Malek, who portrayed the singer in last year's hit film Bohemian Rhapsody. Both of Mercury's solo albums are spotlighted in Never Boring, with a newly mixed 11-track special edition of 1985's Mr. Bad Guy and the nine-track 2012 orchestra-backed edition of 1988's Barcelona, his collaboration with opera singer Montserrat Cabelle. Another CD contains a 12-track compilation of Mercury’s greatest solo performances. The Blu-ray and DVD includes music videos and live performances from Mercury's solo career. The individual albums from Never Boring will also be made available individually on CD, vinyl and on digital and streaming services.
