HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Oct. 4, 2012: This year others can count on you for feedback, as you tend to be quite verbose. Your ability to detach from yourself and your life will prove to be essential to your year and overall happiness. If single, you could meet several people. The person who is quite different will be the right one for you. If attached, a trip will invigorate your relationship. Keeping communication open will be a snap. Gemini always has a different perspective. A baby born today has a sun in Libra and a moon in Taurus if born before 4:47 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Gemini.
