HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Oct. 23, 2011: This year your friends play a big role in at least one facet of your life. If single, a friend could be instrumental in the beginning of a relationship. If attached, work on the friendship between you. Use care with your words, as they come off more sarcastic than you intended. Virgo is a pal. A baby born today, before 11:30 a.m. Pacific time has a Sun in Libra, whereas a baby born afterward has a Sun in Scorpio. The Moon is in Virgo all day long.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You want to complete a project, yet your very social friends keep interfering. There are several solutions; consider reprioritizing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Handle an errand early, as you will want to free yourself up. Meet friends for a late lunch or any type of gathering that interests you. Surround yourself with a chorus of people.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • Tension builds, and there is little you can do to minimize it. Don’t overthink an emotional problem; rather, open up to new possibilities.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Stay centered. A child could be out of whack. Ask yourself why. A new friend might feel insecure. Perhaps this is normal.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • If you need to say something, do it in the morning. Later, you might not be as conscious, as you toss yourself into the activity of the moment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • • You attract many people. Rest assured this situation won’t last forever. Determine your limits and boundaries. Make plans for the afternoon involving good company.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • Sometimes you need to vanish, and today is one of those times. Getting a financial matter on target could be more important than you realize in reaching a personal goal.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Please note a major energy change. You might be happy to be a hermit in the morning, but by the afternoon you decide “no way!”
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Your leadership is well-established, but on some level you have had enough and would like to free up more time just for you. Decide to make that happen today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Invite a friend or loved one to hop in the car to see the fall foliage, or just go for a drive, exploring new areas. Together you get a new sense of freedom and relaxation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • A partner dominates your plans. You cannot really say that you mind. In fact, dote on this person. You don’t always get time like this together.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Your popularity continues to soar, making nearly anything possible. If you decide to throw a party, everyone will pitch in.
