HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Oct. 22, 2012: This year you might feel pushed to the limit at times. Know that you can overcome any challenge, as long as you use others as resources and for brainstorming. Curb excessive spending, and find a less costly path to the same end. If single, you meet people with ease, even at home and in odd circumstances. A trip or a foreigner could play a significant role come July. If attached, schedule that special trip this year; it will strengthen the bond between you. Aquarius knows how to test your limits! A baby born today has a sun in Libra if born before 5:14 p.m. Afterward, the sun will be in Scorpio. The moon is in Aquarius.
