HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Oct. 1, 2013: This year you will alternate between being the extreme extrovert and the recluse whom no one can find. You will network and expand your horizons, yet you also will take frequent timeouts. If single, meeting people comes easily. If attached, enjoy the closeness you create as a couple. Leo can be hard on you. A baby born today has a Sun in Libra and a moon in Leo if born before 11:52 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Virgo.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • The morning might be the most important part of your day. Your follow-through impresses an authority figure. Your creativity will inspire others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • • Make important calls in the morning. By afternoon, you will be best served by cocooning at home.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Try to be more in sync with others, and know full well what you need to do. Let someone know how much you care. Plan to visit this person soon.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You might sense a change of energy midday. Use the high energy of the afternoon to forge ahead with an important cause; otherwise, a loved one could become very difficult.
