HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Oct. 13, 2011: This year you have more impact than you have had in years. You also will feel the weight of additional responsibility. Understand that you cannot bypass this phase without experiencing a defeat or a problem. If single, someone you meet this year could be significant to your life. If attached, the two of you could be unusually hard on each other. Try to lighten up. Make no major decisions this year on the relationship front, if possible. Taurus understands you well. A baby born today has a Sun in Libra and a Moon in Taurus.
