HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012: This year you’ll be able to make a long-term dream a reality. You might consider writing down your dreams, as that also could lead you to what you want. Be aware of a heightened sensitivity involving your intuition, and note any premonitions you get as a result. If single, you could meet someone in your day-to-day travels. If attached, the two of you like to spend time indulging in a favorite pastime or two. Scorpio has an intensity that draws you in. A baby born today has a sun in Libra and a moon in Sagittarius if born after 5:25 p.m. Before that time, the moon is in Libra.
