HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013: This year you often go from being cautious to impulsive, and then back to cautious again. You have a lot going for you – more than you’ve had in many years. Be careful what you wish for, as you are likely to create just that. If single, and you wish to change your status, know that you can. You will meet someone through a friend, or a friendship could develop into a romance. If attached, the two of you will achieve one of your major long-term goals. Taurus is earthy like you, but he or she is very stubborn. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Aries if born before 3:33 p.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Taurus.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • A partner might be very reticent and unwilling to share. You would like to change this and establish a safe environment.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • You seem detached and content. You know how to make a point without triggering others. Use the present moment to get together with a key person.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • Lie low for a few days. You might be more tired and cranky than you have been recently.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • • Surround yourself with friends; you will enjoy being part of a crowd. Consider going to the movies, a concert or even a ballgame.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • You’ll take the lead and follow through on an important matter involving a loved one or your finances. Don’t forget to check in with an older friend or relative.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • You might want to reach out to someone at a distance who you care a lot about. You’ll realize how long it has been since you have seen each other.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Someone will let you know that he or she expects your undivided attention. You might not feel as if you have a choice.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • You barely will have time for yourself, as so many people seem to be seeking you out. Devote the day to a special person in your life.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • You will have so much to do that you won’t be able to socialize the whole day away. Someone close to you might be offended.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • A friend might seem distant, but don’t take this person’s behavior personally. If you do, a real problem could develop.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Wanting to stay close to home is very unusual for you. Ask yourself what you are trying to avoid and why. You simply might need more R & R.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • Realize that your words carry a lot of weight. In fact, you could cause others to pull back or close down.
