Tomorrow’s Horoscope
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 2012 The course you’re presently on looks to be pretty good, and should come to fruition in the coming months. Try not to make any changes without valid reason. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- It doesn’t help to worry about how your colleagues are going to handle a specific situation -- you need to find out. Ask them about their past experience with similar situations. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- An arrangement that could be of benefit to you financially should not be treated with indifference. There’s a good chance that the rewards within your reach could slip away. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23Dec. 21) -- If you get careless about researching the experience of an individual who is scheduled to do a job for you, you could end up getting a rookie. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Usually you’re pretty smart about when to keep things secret, but you might freely discuss something you shouldn’t with those who are deliberately probing you for information. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Because your resistance to splurging tends to be rather low at present, it might be best to steer clear of stores that offer all kinds of unique items. Once inside, you might go wild. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -When something is really important, you can be a tenacious person who sticks to the course until your objective is achieved. Today, however, these enviable qualities might be missing. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It behooves you not to act on impulse when it comes to your financial or business affairs. Be sure that what sounds good upon first hearing is able to stand the test of time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -You’ve heard the old bromide “Haste makes waste.” That could apply to you if you try to take shortcuts in your work. Take your time and do things right. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -There’s a good chance that a purveyor of bad advice could pressure you into making an unwise decision. Keep your own counsel as much as possible. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Try to be tolerant of somebody who doesn’t seem to grasp ideas or concepts as quickly as most people. In reality, it might be due to the way you convey the information to him or her. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It would be best not to borrow any special equipment that you’ve never used before. You could get yourself in a heap of trouble real fast by destroying both your project and the tool. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you are ill-equipped and unfamiliar about a big-ticket item that you want to buy, take more time to learn all you can about it. Don’t rush in where bill collectors are apt to tread.

He has not looked for a job, nor does he have a resume. He claims that he can’t put a resume together because he didn’t participate in any school activities and has no job experience, although he has done quite a bit of volunteer work at his church. He spends much of his time playing video games. Currently, he plays all night. He goes to bed when other people are just waking up and then sleeps until late afternoon. We have never pushed him hard. He helps some around the house, but my wife and I like to do things ourselves. Our son is intel-
