HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2013: This year you sometimes feel as if you have too many options on your plate. A lot of energy will be directed toward your career or your role in the community. You will experience success as well, especially if you deal with the public. If single, you will meet someone out of the blue. In a year, you will know much more about this person’s role in your life. If attached, take on a project with your sweetie, and let him or her have an equal role. You will like the outcome. Do not kid yourself about Aries. You have the same issues. A baby born today has a sun in Libra and a moon in Pisces if born before 6:18 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Aries.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You might want to pull back and observe rather than act. You are likely to be surprised by what you realize.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Speak your mind with the full expectation of being heard loud and clear. Your reception has much to do with your presence.
