October 12: Your daily horoscope

A Sun-Pluto link on your birthday means there will be some pretty stiff challenges over the coming 12 months, but if you are going to accomplish anything meaningful in life you must embrace those challenges rather than try to avoid them. Be the best!

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):
The more you try to convince people that you know what is best for them the more inclined they are to disbelieve you, which is annoying to say the least. Maybe you should take the hint and let them sort it out for themselves.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):
No matter how much work has piled up over the past few days you must forget about it for now and plan for the weekend. Ignore existing deadlines, at least for the next 72 hours. Your work will still be there for you come Monday morning.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):
You could not care less what other people think about your methods and you will make sure they know that fact today. But don't come on too strong and antagonize people you will need to get along with over the next few weeks. Be tactful.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23):
You may find it harder than usual to control your temper today, due to the influence of a tough looking Sun-Pluto link, but if you put your mind to it you can find ways to stay calm. Nothing in life is worth getting too worked up about.

LEO (July 24 - Aug. 23):
Last minute changes to travel and social plans are best avoided, not least because your workload is such that it will be hard enough to meet your commitments as it is, without adding uncertainty to the mix. Stick to what you have already agreed on.

VIRGO (Aug. 24 - Sept. 23):
Don't plan on getting ahead of yourself today because the planets warn you will be called on to deal with unexpected crises both at home and at work and they will eat into your time. Take events as they come and take nothing too seriously.

LIBRA (Sept. 24 - Oct. 23):
There may be one or two emotionally bruising encounters today with people whose way of looking at the world is very different to your own. Try not to make a war of it but don't back down either. You must always stick up for yourself.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24 - Nov. 22):
Little things will annoy you today and the more you tell yourself to stop being silly and get on with life the more worked up you will get. By this time tomorrow you will have calmed down again. Hopefully not much damage will have been done!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 - Dec. 21):
You hate injustice but you sometimes see bad things occurring where they don't really exist and that could be a problem for you over the next 24 hours. Keep telling yourself that it will all come right in the end - the universe will see to it.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 20):
Be flexible today. Bend a little. Yes, of course you can do that Capricorn! People in positions of authority are watching you closely and if they like what they see it could be rewarding for you in the very near future. Never be too rigid in your thinking.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 - Feb. 19):
Sometimes you read too much into what is taking place in the world and that could be a problem today as the Sun's link to Pluto, planet of power, encourages you to expect the worst. No, it's not the end of the world. It's just the beginning.

PISCES (Feb. 20 - Mar. 20):
Sometimes it's okay to be a bit suspicious and today's less than positive cosmic alignment will make it easy to believe that certain individuals cannot be trusted. Keep your doubts to yourself for the time being but be on your guard as well.
