HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Sept. 17, 2011: Your wisdom and ability to detach can make all the difference. You will see the results in all areas of your life. If single, you could meet a foreigner or someone very different. If attached, the two of you will go through changes, especially as your sweetie could be unpredictable. Taurus helps open you up to different views.
A baby born today has a Sun in Virgo and a Moon in Taurus.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You might feel awkward. Events and people could surprise you. Go with others’ suggestions. Relax.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You know what is happening, especially as you are likely to be the instigator. Fatigue or a responsibility could play into your plans.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You might choose to say little. Others aren’t used to the quiet you. Not judging or not expressing your judgments could help someone feel more centered.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Find your friends or go somewhere where there are a lot of people. Don’t spend the whole day alone; you won’t feel good.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Others seem to have strong opinions. Listen rather than shut them down. You hear news that could toss your plans into chaos. You intuitively know which way to go.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Go for a day trip. You need a change of scenery. The same end result could be achieved by going to a good movie or escaping to an environment where you feel no connection to the here and now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • • Deal directly with a partner and handle a personal matter. Your smiling demeanor draws others closer. A close friend or loved one might surprise you with his or her actions.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • You might want to shake up the status quo. Extremes and emotional responses seem to come forward. Refuse to take a comment personally.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Pace yourself with the understanding that you are human, and humans do get tired. Sometimes you push yourself too hard.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • You are too playful to do the same old, same old. A child or loved one comes up with a very fun idea. Why not? Let your hair down and simply relax.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • You might opt to stay close to home. That decision doesn’t preclude having a good time. In fact, the unexpected could come through your door out of the blue.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Your ability to share and discuss what is on your mind draws many. Be careful with stress or frustration. You might need a break from the “annoying” situation in order to recycle.
