ASTROLOGY: For the week of October 25 – October 31, 2014

ASTROLOGY: For the week of October 25 – October 31, 2014

By Sun Lee Chang
Northwest Asian Weekly

Rat —  A wealth of knowledge is ready and available, but it will only work in your favor if you utilize it well.

Ox —  This is one instance where you don’t want to take any chances. In that case, go with a proven winner.

Tiger — A presumption based on a false premise can lead you to shaky territory. Check your facts to be sure you are on solid ground.

 

Rabbit — An idea that you once dismissed is now up for consideration again. Many things have changed, but some things have remained the same.

Dragon — Did you think you were going in one direction when you were really going in another? Your perspective could make a big difference.

Snake — As a great champion of the causes that you support, your passion and devotion will inspire others to do the same.

Horse — As much as you enjoy pushing your limits, there is no denying that you also appreciate the basic comforts of home.

Goat —  You cannot afford to make a mistake today. Keep your errors to a minimum by taking your time and focusing on what you are doing.

Monkey — Though you may be a little nervous for an important meeting, dressing the part can help you to feel more confident.

Rooster — Are you considering pulling the plug on a long-standing tradition? If it basically amounts to a bad habit, then by all means do so.

Dog — Even though it is easier to blame someone else, choosing to correct the situation is a far better use of your energies.

Pig — Are you having a hard time trying to think of what to say? Think of something that you likely have in common with your audience.

What’s your animal sign?
