Happy birthday: for Friday, Oct. 28. This year you enjoy breaking past established barriers. You feel much more fortunate than you have in many years. Take a hard look at your life and let go of what no longer works. You are preparing for a new life and luck cycle that will begin in a year. If you are single, you meet a lot of people, but you keep stumbling into situations where someone is not there for you or has other commitments. This, too, will pass. If you are attached, you could destroy the bond if you don’t make a point to cherish it. Make special time for your sweetie. LIBRA often whispers secrets in your ear. Aries (March 21-April 19): ★★★★ Others might appear to be unusually agreeable, until you discover that you are on a collision course with an authority figure. Discuss the issue, and allow the other party to reveal his or her thoughts; otherwise, you’ll hit a dead end. Tonight: Make the most of the moment. Taurus (April 20-May 20): ★★★ You might have an abnormal amount of work and responsibilities pending. Dive right in, and you will be able to clear out the majority of it today. Reach out to a friend who might offer to pitch in. This person wants you to join him or her as soon as you can! Tonight: Go for something mellow. Gemini (May 21-June 20): ★★★★★ You can’t prevent moments of daydreaming from entering your life today. You might be anxious for the weekend to arrive. A relationship also seems to be building in importance. A close loved one appears to be quite serious. Tonight: The only answer is ‘’yes.’’ Cancer (June 21-July 22): ★★★ If you can work from home, do. You could see a problem with an associate or a loved one as a power play. You might not be sure whether you want to get into this struggle. Know that the only way to win a power play is not to play. Tonight: How about moving TGIF to your place? Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): ★★★★ You could be busy sharing news with many different people from all walks of life. You might be too serious for one person, yet not serious enough for someone else. Understand that you won’t be able to please everyone. Do not fight city hall. Tonight: Embrace the weekend! Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): ★★★ You might not be aware of just how possessive you can be when it comes to a particular part of a project that you consider to be ‘’your baby.’’ Loosen up and get past this attitude, especially if you want to move on and accomplish what you want. Tonight: Make it your treat. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): ★★★★ You could be in the midst of an emotionally volatile situation and not know it. Your upbeat attitude might prevent you from picking up on what is happening with a difficult person. Understand what is going on behind the scenes. Tonight: Get into the weekend ritual. Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): ★★★★ You won’t want to be bothered by everything that is going on around you. You seem to be in a mood where you think that living in a closed-off world would make you happy, and you actually might decide to give it a shot. Tonight: Far away from the raving crowd. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): ★★★★ Loosen up, and don’t take others so seriously. You will lighten up and have a better time than you might have thought possible. Reveal more of your caring nature. Use caution with any money offers, as financial decisions are not favored. Tonight: Accept a friend’s invitation. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): ★★★★★ You have a way about you that opens up many situations, but you could be forced to approach a new problem differently. Refuse to get stuck in antiquated thinking. You might be overwhelmed by what you are hearing. Tonight: On a roll if you are out and about.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): ★★★★★ Reach out to someone at a distance in order to get a new perspective. Get past selfimposed limitations by speaking to a dynamic thinker who is open, respectful and circumspect in his or her comments. Tonight: Cheer on the weekend by trying a new activity. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): ★★★★ Touch base with a dear friend who often adds to the moment; you’ll feel more upbeat as a result. Fatigue could be a factor in the afternoon. Take a power nap. Return a friend’s call. Note how this person is transforming in front of your eyes. Tonight: Throw yourself into the moment.
