HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2010: This year, you swing from being intensely personal to quite detached. Both avenues of self-expression are you. Just be in tune with your needs. If single, be open to a very different type of person. If attached, be willing to walk in your sweetie’s shoes. Try to imagine what it is like being him or her. Accept rather than criticize. Cancer helps you see the other side.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Keep conversations moving, though you could see a lot change quickly. Understanding evolves to a new level once you process a situation that makes you and others angry.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Deal with your finances directly. You could find that someone wants to spend your money for you. Do you know how to say no? Start practicing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • You feel empowered and energized in the daytime. Get an early start, if possible. An idea you have been tinkering with might draw some interesting comments.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Seize the moment and do some much-needed reflecting and decision-making. Timing is such that by the end of the day, you will feel energized and ready to deal with whatever is needed.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Zero in on what you want, and don’t hold back in a meeting or a group discussion any longer. Someone you share with thinks his or her ideas are better.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You might want to back off from a situation or change your direction. The problem lies in that you are a leader.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Keep reaching out for more information and facts. Be willing to adapt to a needed change that comes out of nowhere. Use care with spending.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Discussions need to be on an individual level. The unexpected pops in from out of left field. Don’t take any unnecessary risks, as they could backfire.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Others insist on dominating. Be smart, and don’t fight city hall. Use care with a domestic matter that could turn quirky.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Remain easygoing with those you deal with on a daily basis. You might want to redesign your schedule or become more independent.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Your imagination sometimes is difficult to rein in. Try to use it to expand your knowledge. Play amateur psychologist, and try to walk in another’s shoes.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Your instincts will guide you with a domestic or personal matter. Your reactions might surprise you. Visit with an intriguing individual late today.
