HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Oct. 15, 2009: This year, you move in new ways and make what you want happen. Refuse to get into power plays. Learn to walk away from such manipulations. Some people in your life could be stunned by your firm “no” and independence. If attached, your significant other will learn to relate on new terms. If single, remain centered about what you want from a relationship. Virgo reads you too well – nearly!
ARIES (March 21-April 19) •••• Intensity marks your interactions. Someone clearly cares and wants to let you know. How appropriate that might be is another issue.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ••••• An indulgence on your part could lead to more demands. You wonder for what and why. Investigate options that appear out of the blue.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) •••• Stick to basics. An adjustment within a relationship might be more necessary than you think. Go with the flow. Your ability to move past another’s contrary attitude allows growth.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) ••••• Return calls and stay on top of your game. Be aware of your present limits and don’t worry about what others think. Go past the mundane.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ••• Understanding the implications of an agreement helps you move past a problem. Opposition occurs out of the blue, and you cannot calm down a partner.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) •••• You greet excess positively right now, as you have been holding yourself back too much. Others could be unpredictable.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••• Pressure builds around the home front and what you perceive is going on. Get ready for winter, and schedule a checkup for your heating system.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) •••• It’s a good idea to focus on a meeting in order to make your point. Your ability to regroup and think on your feet counts.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) •••• If you can relax and not react, you could stay on top of your game. Evaluate and consider what someone seems to be offering. Can you trust this person?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) ••••• Keep reaching out for someone you care about. You might be shocked by what develops if you relax and just let events flow. Nervous energy surrounds you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) •••• You might want to exert pressure on someone. Let go of this desire and simply let this person figure out who holds the cards. He or she wants to work with you anyway.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) •••• By now, one would think that you cannot influence several people in your life. You see a way to make both of your objectives happen.
