Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - LIFE - Jac­que­line Bi­gar

Happy birth­day:

for Sun­day, Oct. 9. This year you touch base with many old friends. You also make new friends and broaden your hori­zons. How much you share of your per­sonal life de­pends on your choices. In­spi­ra­tional ideas just seem to come to you. Nev­er­the­less, first test them out on some­one who can be blunt with you. If you are sin­gle, you could meet some­one whom you im­me­di­ately want to draw in closer. Take your time get­ting to know this per­son. If you are at­tached, the two of you of­ten plan on spend­ing time to­gether at home. These spe­cial pe­ri­ods strengthen your bond. CAPRI­CORN feels as if he or she knows more than you.

Aries (March 21-April 19):

Your Stars

★★★ Take charge of the mo­ment. You can make some­one feel ei­ther great or ter­ri­ble, de­pend­ing on your mood. Car­ing ex­ists be­tween you and a friend; it would be wise not to be so re­ac­tive to this per­son’s ev­ery ac­tion, which is your nat­u­ral ten­dency. Tonight: Who cares about to­mor­row?

Tau­rus (April 20-May 20):

★★★★★ Reach out to some­one who can help you gain a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of what is go­ing on. You might have an un­ex­pected in­sight that ini­tially makes you un­com­fort­able. Know that this vi­sion will em­power you later. Tonight: De­tach in or­der to find a so­lu­tion.

Gem­ini (May 21-June 20):

★★★★ One-on-one re­lat­ing opens doors and makes a change pos­si­ble. Once you gain pas­sage, you ac­tu­ally might de­cide that you don’t need to walk through the door. Freedom of choice proves to be more im­por­tant to you than the path you head down. Tonight: Hang out with a pal.

★★★★ De­fer to others, and you’ll get the re­sponse you de­sire. You might not be as sure of

Can­cer (June 21-July 22):

your­self as you’d like to be. Hid­ing your in­se­cu­ri­ties from the ma­jor­ity of peo­ple might work, but not with those to whom you are clos­est. An older friend sur­prises you. Tonight: Out late.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22):

★★★ You have had many as­pi­ra­tions for your week­end. Today, for your own men­tal well-be­ing, you find that you must pri­or­i­tize and com­plete one task or project at a time. News from a dis­tance could force a change of plans. Express your car­ing. Tonight: Pace your­self.

★★★★★ Al­low your imag­i­na­tion to lead the way. Make sure that others are on the same page as you. You could take for granted that a loved one wants the same out­come you de­sire. Show your ap­pre­ci­a­tion for this per­son’s sup­port. A sur­prise will change your fo­cus. Tonight: Be more fluid.

★★★★ You might be won­der­ing which di­rec­tion you should head in. A fam­ily mat­ter dom­i­nates the day, which is likely to add

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Li­bra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

to the con­fu­sion. Rec­og­nize that you must han­dle this im­me­di­ate cri­sis be­fore you do any­thing else. Tonight: Brace your­self for the un­ex­pected.

Scor­pio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

★★★★ Pick up the phone and call a friend whom you adore but rarely make time to chat with. Catch­ing up on each other’s news will make you both happy. The un­ex­pected takes you down an unusual path. Al­though it is nat­u­ral to hes­i­tate, don’t. Tonight: Visit with sev­eral loved ones.

Sagit­tar­ius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

★★★ Be aware of the cost of mak­ing a cer­tain choice. You could cause your­self sig­nif­i­cant angst if you don’t rein in your spend­ing. You might want to buy a to­ken of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for a loved one; keep your bud­get in mind, and you won’t have a prob­lem. Tonight: Make it your treat.

★★★★★ Your fiery per­son­al­ity comes out when you let go of your work life and heavy re­spon­si­bil­i­ties. Be a kid again, and en­joy

Capri­corn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

the mo­ment. You care enor­mously about a close loved one. Share news and be more open with this per­son. Tonight: Paint the town red.

Aquar­ius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

★★★ Step back and ob­serve. Throw­ing your­self into a com­mu­nity mat­ter will take your mind off of a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion. You tend to do some­thing sur­pris­ing when others least ex­pect it; make sure you as­sess whether this will be well-re­ceived. Tonight: Get some ex­tra R and R.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20):

★★★★ You might up­set the ap­ple cart by be­ing self-in­dul­gent. It might not be pos­si­ble for you to reverse what has been done. How­ever, you can tap into your self-dis­ci­pline to pre­vent any fur­ther dam­age. Con­sider tak­ing a step back for now. Tonight: Ac­cept a friend’s invitation.
