HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2012: This year you often are an instrument of change for others, but as a result, you will have to transform yourself as well. Sometimes you might wish that this cycle would end. You express yourself with clarity and charm. If you are single, you might see that many suitors tend to flock toward you. The person you choose today might not work so well in several months. Avoid making any quick commitments. If you are attached, as a couple you enjoy each other’s company even more than in the past. Scorpio often plays devil’s advocate. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Libra if born before 7:48 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Scorpio.
