HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Sept. 22, 2011: This year, a relationship or partnership could gain in importance. You value this tie, but this person seems to be changing right in front of you. If single, you could meet someone very different while pursuing a spiritual or educational interest. Success will greet you this year if you can surround yourself with the right people. Leo reads you cold. A baby born today has a Sun in Virgo and a Moon in Cancer until 6:55 p.m. Pacific time, when the Moon moves into Leo.
