Horoscope for October 17, 2011

By Bernice Bede Osol

Be extremely selective of individuals you choose as allies in the year ahead, in either business or personal matters. Don't connect yourself with anybody who can't make a credible contribution or offer something of value.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be extra prudent in the management of your resources or be prepared to assume more debt than you can comfortably handle. You won't like taking on so much financial obligation.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Should opposition come from an unexpected quarter, you could get caught off guard. However, don't get angry -- instead figure out what precipitated this turn of events.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- If you are taken to task for not doing something you were supposed to do, don't make excuses. It'll give you much more peace of mind to start performing instead.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Guard your behavior when in a social or group setting, so that you don't absentmindedly do something that would be construed as ill-mannered.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you allow outside forces to invade your domicile, conditions will not be as placid as you would prefer them to be. Why invite trouble into your quarters?

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Certain concepts or ideas that you thought had considerable support might instead be challenged by some unexpected people. Don't try to force compliance.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Watch out for somebody applying pressure to get you to cough up something that he or she wants. Don't give up the goods, no matter how this person wheedles.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Should you find yourself up against a person you dislike, don't make matters worse by letting your feelings be known. If you do, you will only add to an already bad situation.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If you've been covering up or failing to do something that was expected of you, it could be a time of reckoning. The things that you've been neglecting will be brought to light.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Unless you make it a point to take a hand in formulating important plans, others involved will do so for you. Chances are they'll do only what is favorable for them.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Guard against taking on an involvement that you're not equipped to handle. You could quickly find yourself in way over your head and cause all kinds of problems.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're someone who usually stays calm, cool and collected, yet there is a strong possibility you could lose your composure over something insignificant. Don't get caught off guard.
