HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Sept. 9, 2012: This year you approach life with newfound determination and seriousness. You often have inspired ideas and follow through on them. You aim for what you want, and many times, especially from June on, you see your desires become a reality. If single, you could meet your next sweetie through your work and/or a friend. If attached, the two of you decide to make a greater commitment to each other sometime near your next birthday. You can count on Cancer. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Gemini if born before 9:49 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Cancer.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You might be happiest staying at home. You can’t really make plans around a key individual who seems to be in a funk. Your instincts carry you through a problem.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • Be direct in your dealings, and others will be able to respond in an authentic manner.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You might find that you feel funky later in the afternoon. If this is the case, just do what you must, and you will free up some extra time.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • By midmorning, you feel far more energized. Someone who sees that change might want to hold you back. This person’s insecurity might be emerging.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You might be off to a great start in the morning, but soon enough you will be ready to curl up with the Sunday paper.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Wherever you go, you can count on being noticed. You might believe that someone is being rather controlling.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • You might want to make a point, but at what cost? You could be rather serious when dealing with others.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • • A loved one enjoys getting together with you for brunch. You could feel pushed, but enjoy yourself anyway.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • Others continue to dominate your plans, but make it your pleasure. A friend seems dearly in need of being cheered up.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • • You want to respond to key individuals, but first you have to make a must appearance involving work or an older friend.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • You convert your interests in order to be more nurturing to others. How you see someone could change, as you have to deal with their controlling side.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • • Let your creative side take over. Others perk up when they see you like this. Invite friends and family over for an early dinner or another fun idea.
