HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012: This year much of your focus is on the quality of your life. You might be overserious at times, especially in the first few months of this birthday year. Learn to let go more often. If single, you will meet someone when you least expect it. If attached, as a couple you make it a priority to work on building security. You also might look to invest in a home or just make necessary renovations. Capricorn can be a stick in the mud. A baby born today has a sun in Libra and a moon in Capricorn all day.
