HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012: This year opportunities come out of left field. Matters involving someone at a distance, travel or education appear to be very fortunate. You might want to schedule a trip or two this year. If single, you could meet someone very intense who draws you in. If attached, you will experience a lot of positive moments despite the fact that your relationship has weathered some hard times in the past. You are like two magnets when you’re together. Stay open with each other, and you will stay out of trouble! Leo makes a great friend. A baby born today has a sun in Libra and a moon in Cancer if born before 4:55 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Leo.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • Your fiery ways might ignite others into action if you are not careful. You also could provoke a great deal of brainstorming and unexpected ideas.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Your sense of humor allows others to relax around you. As people start to open up, you’ll gain helpful insights.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Sometimes you might overwhelm people with everything that you do and seem capable of handling.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Get past a bad mood. A child or a lively conversation will help you to do just that. The unexpected has become routine, and yet somehow it still manages to surprise you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Defer to a more upbeat person. You might feel sluggish when dealing with an issue that you want to keep hush-hush.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Listen to news carefully. You can be quite intellectual and detached at times. You’ll finally see how a misunderstanding occurred. Clear up your side of the issue ASAP.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • You don’t mind being complimented and admired, but the other side of the coin is that you must perform at 110 percent on a regular basis.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • What you come up with in your mind could be the best-case scenario. Distance yourself and see if the potential exists to have this idea happen.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • The unexpected occurs, and you could act on your frustration. Perhaps you feel as if there is no other way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • You feel a strong sense of dedication to your friends, and they to you. Your ability to identify with others falls short with one person.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Maintain a steady pace. News could be slow to arrive, if it comes at all. If you need some information, seek it out. Do not stand on ceremony.
