Horoscope for October 19, 2011

By Bernice Bede Osol

Instead of taking gambles on persons or things about which you know little, bet only on yourself in the year ahead. You'll have several good potential projects and, even if you fail, you'll know why and what to do about it in the future.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Take care not to let your anger out on an innocent bystander if you are overpowered or outmaneuvered on an important matter. Count to 10 before opening your mouth.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Maintain mental discipline regardless of what happens to throw you off. Underestimating the value of essential elements in your endeavors could cause you to unravel.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Keep both your social and business contacts separate and, above all, avoid all speculative arrangements with friends. If things don't go the way they should, you'll be to blame.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Taking on more objectives or projects that you can comfortably manage is self-defeating, so don't gamble on your workload. Dedicate yourself to only one or two targets.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don't be coerced into putting your signature on something that you're hesitant about, and be wary of even a verbal commitment. What you agree to might be deliberately distorted.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- It behooves you to be self-reliant, because people upon whom you depend might make promises they later find they can't keep. Personal requirements will take precedence over yours.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- If you're a bit slow and your thinking isn't quite as sharp as it usually is, forgo attempting to match wits with an adversary. Back off until a riper time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Look before you leap when attempting to handle a complex assignment. You could easily misread something and end up making your task twice as hard to accomplish.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There is a strong chance that some social plans you've been looking forward to will get canceled or postponed. Be prepared with some backup plans so you won't experience a total letdown.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's never smart to allow someone who can be dead weight into an arrangement where you and several others are aiming for a specific target. He or she is likely to hold you back once again.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There is one thing that could cause you much disarray, and that is proceeding forward on an idea without laying out a proper game plan. Take a moment to formulate one.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Unless you are prudent in the management of your resources, you're not likely to have the financial wherewithal to make ends meet when you really need to.
