PISCES: October 10-14

Horror novelist Stephen King has sold more than 350 million books. When he was young and destitute, still honing his craft, his self-confidence was low. His breakthrough work was Carrie, about a teenage girl who develops telekinetic powers. When he was first writing that manuscript on an old manual typewriter, he got so discouraged he threw his first draft in the trashcan. Luckily for him, his wife retrieved it and convinced him to keep at it. He finished, and later sold the paperback rights for $400,000. Hope you have an ally who’ll dig in your garbage to fish out the good stuff you unwisely discard. Maybe this horoscope will convince you not to scrap it in the first place.
