HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Oct. 24, 2011: This year you might want to steer a steady ship, but the surprises keep coming. You will process your feelings and learn to move through your moods. If single, you might be attracted to someone who is emotionally unavailable. If attached, the two of you benefit from plenty of downtime together to nourish the bond. Libra reads you cold. A baby born today has a Sun in Scorpio and a Moon in Libra if born after 8:49 a.m. Pacific time. Before that time the baby will have a Moon in Virgo.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • Defer to others, knowing that if there is a problem, you would prefer it be someone else’s. Remain sensitive to a boss.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • Your nerves could be fried due to many unexpected events. You wonder what the best thing to do is under the circumstances.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Allow more playfulness. You might wonder when enough is enough. Pressure builds around your work or a routine. You might need to reorganize your plans.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Someone you look up to could be tossing havoc into your path. Try to steer clear. It appears as though everyone wants a situation to tumble his or her way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Keep conversations moving. Explore why a situation might not be working. This situation could provoke your imagination, encouraging solutions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • Rethink a personal matter. Your ability to think through another person’s problem is great for him or her, but can you do the same for yourself?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Your spirit is hard to beat. You seem to be able to deal with nearly anyone. Right now, that skill is good news, because you might need it when dealing with a loved one.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • Take your time; take a deep breath and think through a problem. You have a unique ability to understand many dimensions.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Allow more give-and-take between you and another person. You have similar goals but very different approaches. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • Instead of pushing so much, work on being a good receiver. Try to understand if you made a bad judgment call.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Much could be going on that is uncomfortable and encourages you to detach. You know better than anyone that you don’t need to be in the middle of everything.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Someone comes forward and shares a lot more of him- or herself. You want to flow with this person, but you still might not be sure. You might start veering off course.
