Horoscope for Sept. 13, 2017

ARIES (March 21 to April 19): This is a poor day to ask for approval from bosses, parents and VIPs. Make note of this. Postpone this request for another time. Just coast today.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20): Expect obstacles to arise when you try to enjoy the arts, movies, sporting events or any social diversion. It’s as if the world is conspiring against you. Likewise, romantic difficulties might arise. Be patient.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20): This is a poor day for an important discussion with a parent or a family authority figure. People are quick to say “no.” Therefore, bide your time and wait until later this week.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22): Proceed gently in everything that you do today because obstacles will arise. They might arise as transportation problems or disagreements with others, or just a lack of cooperation.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): You might encounter financial difficulties today, which is why this is not an ideal day for financial negotiations and wheeling and dealing. Postpone things until Thursday or Friday morning.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): Life seems to be difficult today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): You might be discouraged by something that takes place behind the scenes today. (Perhaps only you know about it.) Don’t let it get you down because things will be fine by the end of the week.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): A friend or someone older or in a group situation might block your ideas today. Don’t let this get you down. Try again in a week, or even Friday morning.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): Don’t ask bosses, parents and VIPs for permission today because their response will be, “Talk to the hand.” Forewarned is forearmed.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): Avoid controversial discussions about politics, religion and racial issues today because you will get shot down. Just steer clear of tender subjects.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): This is not a good day to ask for a loan or mortgage, or to discuss shared property or inheritances. People are not cooperative today.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20): Relationships with partners and close friends are a bit sticky today. Knowing this ahead of time, you can tread lightly. Don’t ask for favors. Easy does it.

BORN TODAY: You are thoughtful, kind and devoted to others. You also are focused and persevering. This is a year full of excitement and change. Many opportunities will present themselves, and when they do, you have to act fast. Your personal freedom is a top priority. You also will travel this year and do things to expand your horizons. Enjoy this busy, fast-paced year!
