HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Oct. 6, 2011: If you are aware of your objectives and don’t lose sight of them, you will have little problem manifesting your goals. Allow your intellect and imagination to intertwine. If single, your determination could scare some people away. That characteristic is part of you. If attached, encourage your sweetie to join you in making a long-term goal a reality. Aquarius can be provocative. A baby born today has a Moon in Aquarius and a Sun in Libra.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Avoid being feisty at all costs. You will have a difficult time warming up the atmosphere if you don’t keep yourself somewhat restrained.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • Friends surround you left and right. You could be amazed by what you accomplish. Lighten up and worry less. A family member pushes you too hard for your taste, and you react.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • You might want to try empathizing with someone. You discover that an effort to warm up your discussion might have been more stifled than you realized. Try again.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • A partner makes an offer that could be too good to be true. Don’t overthink the issue; simply leap into action and deal with a key associate directly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • • Stay anchored in order to handle others who test their limits. Your easygoing attitude but relatively stern face lets them know this is a real boundary and you are being nice.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You might want to rethink a decision that revolves around an important choice. Your finances might restrict you from doing what you want.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • You could be overly serious, and might get a strong reaction from others. If you can be a little less withdrawn, you might be able to draw stronger responses.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You cannot avoid dealing with family issues. You could be overly tired or withdrawn. Assume a low profile rather than cause a problem.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Phones ring. You experience considerable pressure to do something the way someone else does. You feel as if you have no choice.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Steer clear of making assumptions. You want to get to the bottom of a problem. Do it in a kind and orderly manner.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • You seem to mitigate someone’s anger so it doesn’t hit others so hard, yet at the same time you honor his or her feelings. If you so choose, you could clear the air.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Take advantage of an offer that might be too difficult to say “no” to. Realize the ramifications. You also could be too busy for words.
