HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Oct. 18, 2013: This year you often will have to decide between doing what you think will work and doing what you want to do. You will discover that your emotional voice has more power, as it reflects an inner depth and caring. If single, relating could be far from easy. You could experiment with being docile, verbal, non-combative, etc. If attached, as a couple, you often are on opposite ends of an issue. Try to reach a compromise so that each of you will have a chance to make a final decision. Respect your differences, and you will be on cruise control. Aries is strong and domineering. A baby born today has a sun in Libra and a moon in Aries.
ARIES (March 20-April 19) • • • • You are a sign that is likely to feel the eclipse today. In any case, you most definitely will if you were born around April 18.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You will be full of get-up-and-go today, but there seems to be a problem that is subconscious.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You want to have more fun in your life. In pursuit of this goal, a friend could be distancing him- or herself more quickly than you realize.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • Pressure keeps building between a personal matter and a financial or business issue. Nothing will be resolved today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Follow your gut today. Emotions could run high, and a true representation of where you are coming from can be understood only from this level.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Dealing with investment sources might put you in a tizzy. Right now, don’t do anything with today’s active eclipse.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • An eclipse in your opposite sign could find you exhausted and tired. What might be best is not to get into the moment, and detach from it instead.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Be ready for a change in your daily schedule. A situation could evolve that you cannot and should not say “no” to.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • Your creativity flourishes, entertains others and permits unusual ideas to pop up. Emotionally, you might want to be contrary or controlling.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • You could be slightly more challenging than you think. You are determined to have a domestic situation go a certain way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • • You actually might use too many words in an explanation. It could make it seem as if you are feeling guilty or covering up. Remember, the less said, the better.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • If you must take a money risk, make it small. That way, if you lose, there will be no lasting pain.
