HAPPY BIRTHDAY | OCT. 4: This year could be very important as far as your public image and career are concerned. You will be noticed more than you realize. You also could be in a situation where you want to be more open than you have been in the past. Remember the importance of being authentic, too. If you are single, you meet people with ease. Take your time getting to know someone. If you are attached, the two of you move to a new level of understanding. As busy as you are, be sure not to leave your significant other out of the mix. You easily get stressed out around Cancer.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) You can’t ignore the tension around you, but you might not be sure about the best way to eliminate it. Let it go and use your high energy constructively. Get some exercise, and get away from highly tense interactions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might want to straighten out a misunderstanding before it becomes much more. Share some of your thoughts about a particular friendship and the people involved. A child or loved one simply can’t get enough of you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Make sure your checking account is balanced before you leap into action. Spending money goes through your fingers so easily and a bit too naturally. A risk might seem worth the investment, but be sure that you can afford the loss, should it happen.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) You feel in tune with others, even if they are having a disagreement. Your empathetic qualities work like a sponge, seemingly absorbing others’ feelings. A call from a distance, or even a passing thought, could trigger a fantasy about a loved one.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Try to play it low-key today. That is not to say that you will be lonely or that everyone will ignore you; you simply will be happier not committing to anything and just doing your thing. You’ll want to reassess a situation involving a close loved one.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You might have plans, but keeping them could be difficult, as an unexpected group of friends seems to seek you out. Don’t underestimate how much you inspire others. Someone you love could become jealous of all the attention you are getting.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Take a stand and understand that others might not agree. In fact, they probably won’t. You tend to trigger a lot of gossip. Stay involved in the discussion. Reach out to others, and show interest in what they have to share.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Keep stretching past self-imposed limits, even though you might need a friend to help you with this process. Sometimes we can’t see our mental filter, but others can. You will feel very fortunate when you clear out some of your unnecessary judgments.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Make this a special day with the one you love. You can be spontaneous and just take off. Cancel plans, if need be. The quality of your interactions will reconnect the two of you on a deeper level. Don’t let an older friend interfere with the quality of your day.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might be so determined to make a point that you forget who you are with and that you do not need to push so hard. A loved one won’t need convincing of the wisdom of your ways. Follow your sixth sense with a child. You’ll be glad you did.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Push as hard as you need to. You have a lot to get through, and quite quickly at that. Once you clear up a problem, you will feel free. You don’t need to push. You can join a pal for a movie or invite someone over for an early dinner.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Take your cues from a loved one. Get away from the daily grind and don’t think about work. Tap into your imagination and make plans. Go for something spontaneous. A child could throw a tantrum if you give someone else too much attention!
