HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2013: This year you often go back and forth when trying to make a decision, as you clearly see both sides of an issue. You want to be helpful, but you might want to be more discriminating as to whom you choose to lend a hand. If single, you might not want to commit this year, even though you could meet someone quite spectacular. If attached, the two of you often debate who does what, as far as household chores go. Respect your differences rather than harp on them, and you’ll be much happier. Pisces challenges you. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Aquarius if born before 1:39 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Pisces.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • You could be unusually verbal, but you also will choose to hold back more of your feelings.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • You finally will focus on what you want. A meeting could be provocative – mainly because of the mix of people involved.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • You like to demonstrate your ability to make waves. Right now, all eyes are on you. You’ll take the lead in a project, and others will observe.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • You often defer to others and then get angry because you feel as if they walk all over you. Who do you have to blame but yourself?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • You’ll feel the downward spiral of working very hard and not getting your way with a key matter.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Your popularity soars, and with this status comes opportunity. Some of you might act like a kid in a candy store.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • You’ll be determined to handle a personal matter directly and efficiently. Put what is happening between you and someone else on hold.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Many people might view you as being distant or stern right now, but you simply are trying not to fall off course.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Whether you’re not feeling well or you’re quietly reviewing a changing situation, you will benefit from some time away from all the action.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Study different alternatives, and feel free to ask questions that relate to the situation at hand.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Your ability to see the light at the end of the tunnel might be necessary when dealing with a money matter.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • • You express so much enthusiasm through your body language that others will see you in a positive light.
