HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013: This year you often find yourself involved with cause-minded friends. One friend in particular could be unusually difficult and/or angry. How you deal with this situation is your call. You might want to put yourself in this person’s shoes. If single, be open to meeting someone who is very different from you. You could meet this person through a friend. If attached, the two of you learn to respect your differences and use them to empower your relationship. Plan a special trip together. Cancer helps you see a different vision of possibilities. A baby born today has a sun in Scorpio and a moon in Cancer.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • You feel unusually tuned in to a family member. You have a lot going on and easily could get angry out of the blue.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • • You become quite the conversationalist, though you might get upset at someone’s anger that appears to be directed at you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You could be quite intense as you seek immediate results. Your creativity flourishes when dealing with a hassle or someone’s frustration.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • You beam in what you want, but you might be so much in your head that you could be accident-prone.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • Know what is happening behind the scenes. Understand what is going on with a loved one. Listen to your inner voice, and follow through on your decision.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Zero in on what you want. A partner could be unusually vague, and he or she might confuse you. You also might not want to hear what this person has to say.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • A sense of irritation could be undermining your best intentions and come out when you would prefer it wouldn’t.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Your likeminded friends know what they want from a situation. Trying to change their minds would be like entering a war zone.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • • • You could be seeing a situation differently than in the past. A friend presents a new side of his or her personality.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Defer to others, and know full well that you might not agree with them. It is important for a close associate to see the end results of pursuing the present course.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • • Pace yourself. Your money sense plays out, but you must handle your own finances, as others could be accident-prone.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • Your creativity might not be able to soothe someone’s nerves. In fact, it might just make a situation worse.
