HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Oct. 14, 2013: This year your imagination goes wild playing out solutions, ideas and emotional situations. Romance will emerge because of your ability to fantasize and create wonderful scenarios. A boss or an associate loves your ideas. You will excel at work, but be cautious around an older woman or man, as this person does not have your best interests in mind. If single, make sure that the feelings between you and a potential sweetie are mutual before you unleash your romantic being. If attached, the two of you enjoy a period of unusual closeness. Your day-to-day life improves because of your ability to see different paths. Pisces encourages you to live your dreams. A baby born today has a sun in Libra and a moon in Aquarius if born before 2:06 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Pisces.
