HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Oct. 4, 2013: This year you open up to a new opportunity that you might not had dreamed was possible. You will not question the validity of the option; you simply will jump on it. Others find you to be unusually magnetic and creative. If single, enjoy dating, but do not make a commitment until you are absolutely sure that this person is right for you. If attached, you will attract a lot of attention this year. Be sure to dote on your sweetie as much as possible. He or she will need it, considering you are likely to be on center stage all year long. Another Libra adds to your creativity and ideas. A baby born today has a sun and moon in Libra all day.
