ASTROLOGY: For the week of October 18 – October 24, 2014

ASTROLOGY: For the week of October 18 – October 24, 2014

By Sun Lee Chang
Northwest Asian Weekly

Rat —  Steer clear of those who hold you back. The fewer the obstacles, the faster and farther you will be able to go.

Ox —  You are not a big fan of surprises, but there are exceptions. Every once in a while, a pleasant turn is most welcome.

Tiger — Before you get too carried away, it’s a good idea to check in with someone whose perspective is one that you value and respect.

 

Rabbit — Are you hoping someone will figure out how you really feel? Stop the guesswork and just tell them.

Dragon — To the extent that you control your own schedule, try to group things together that make the best use of your time.

Snake — Do you feel like a friend of yours is keeping score or tallying things they shouldn’t? Perhaps you have misjudged the true nature of your relationship.

Horse — Don’t be shy about coming to the defense of someone you care about, especially if you know that they would do the same for you.

Goat —  Have you over committed yourself for the next few weeks? As hard as it may be, it is fine to turn down an invitation or two.

Monkey — Is there a little mischievous streak running through you today? Some harmless fun here and there works as long as you stay out of trouble.

Rooster — Why spin a tale for someone else’s benefit? It takes far less work and energy on your part if you just tell the truth.

Dog — Do you have a craving that just won’t go away? It might help to indulge in some small way, for the longer you resist, the more you will probably want it.

Pig — As much as you want to skip to the end, you should take interim steps to avoid issues later on.

What’s your animal sign?

It’s 1:30 in the morning. My wife, asleep on the couch, saw headlights stream through the drapes. She looked out and saw someone near her car. “Fred,” she called out, “there’s somebody in our yard!” I rolled out of bed and grabbed the bag where my 9mm pistol was tucked. I saw a white truck enter our other driveway, where it is parked, headlights on. I opened the front door for a better look, putting my pistol bag atop a nearby table. The occupants of the truck made no movement. Finally, after several minutes, they left. We did not call 911, as there was no break-in. I didn’t draw my pistol and rack a round into the chamber, but I was ready. And it felt very comfortable to have that tool by my side. Read the full story
