The Washington Post Sunday - - DIVERSIONS - BY JAC­QUE­LINE BI­GAR

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!
