Happy birthday for Friday, Oct. 16, 2009: This year, you make waves and see life with renewed energy. Go for one of your life goals this year, and don’t allow anyone to trip you up. If single, you could meet someone key to your life’s history at any given moment. If attached, coordinate your efforts toward a common goal. See the power of two this year. A fellow Libra understands you far better than you think.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) •••• If your day is a preview of this weekend, you really might enjoy yourself. Your energy becomes more dynamic, and the spontaneous choice homes in on what you want.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) ••••• Your creativity opens up a different ballpark professionally. Take that extra step to share your ideas.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) •••• How you deal with basics could become a prime issue. Listen to the words that some people use, and note what words are left out. Understanding evolves to a new level.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) ••••• You have an unusual vitality that others notice, but it can be problematic at the same time. Many people wish they had your drive, energy and endurance.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) ••• Be sensitive to expenditures. Also prepare to take a hard look at your anger in the next few months. How do you handle your anger?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) ••••• You often get what you want through charm or simply by being yourself. In the next eight months, you’ll also have more of a strong drive to make what you want happen.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) ••• You might want to rethink a decision you recently made involving a boss, parent or older relative. This person will become more cantankerous in the next few months.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) ••••• You know where you are going and why. Convincing a group to follow in your footsteps could be a lot harder than you anticipate.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) •••• Take your rightful place at work or within a personal matter. How you view a partner could be subject to change in the next few months, becoming much more assertive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) ••••• Keep going for the overview rather than get caught up on the stumbling stones of being triggered and having to be right. Find experts before making an important decision.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) ••••• Deal directly with a partner. Evasiveness simply will backfire and create a lot of resentment. Let this person lead the talks.
