HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Oct. 8, 2012: This year an innate tension exists between two seemingly opposing interests that are pulling you in different directions. Your unusual resourcefulness and creativity emerge and allow many different opportunities to open up. A foreigner or someone very different might suddenly appear in your life. If single, this person could become more than just an acquaintance. If attached, travel could play a very important role in your year; it also might draw the two of you closer together. Cancer is emotional, and you often feel a need to respond. A baby born today has a sun in Libra and a moon in Cancer all day.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You might need to depend on someone else, which could make you uncomfortable. You simply cannot be everywhere at once.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Reach out for a key person who has been evasive lately. If this individual continues in this manner, revamp your approach or simply choose not to deal with him or her.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You offer a lot. Your creativity might be at a standstill, but this will last for only a short period of time.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Tension builds. Allow greater give-and-take, and remember to center yourself. Take a risk and trust your sixth sense; you will like the end results.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Time works in your favor, though impulsiveness might be your initial reaction. Know that an immediate decision most likely would backfire.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You benefit from hearing what people around you have to say. You might not be sure as to what decision or choice to make, so get as much feedback as possible.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Meet responsibilities head-on. Your willingness to step up to the plate is what identifies you and separates you from others.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Reach out for experts. Do some research on your own, too, and you will have a greater understanding when speaking to others.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • Deal with a key person who has an impact on you personally and/or professionally. A meeting or a friend helps you keep your goals in mind.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Let others express what they want. You are anchored and know how to deal with various suggestions.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Focus on accomplishments and getting a project completed. Your creativity surges. A loved one would like more of your time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Brainstorm and share more with others. At the same time, you do not want to reveal too much about a particular person.
