HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2012: This year you tap into your wit and intelligence, no matter what you choose to do. Others like having you around. Make sure that you are clear in your communication, as often there tend to be mix-ups. If single, you could meet someone who appears out of the blue. If attached, the two of you could experience some misunderstandings. Let go of your judgment, and accept your partner as he or she is. Gemini makes you laugh easily. A baby born today has a sun in Scorpio and a moon in Taurus if born before 11:40 a.m. Afterward, the moon will be in Gemini.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • By midday, a situation will energize you, and you might feel tense and excited simultaneously. Be sure to cross off the errands on your to-do list.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • The unexpected occurs, which forces you to pull back and center yourself. This time of reflection ultimately allows you to gain.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • As the day goes on, you feel more empowered. You’ll communicate on a deep level and share more of your ideas.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • Use the morning to the max, and do what you must in order to assume a low profile in the afternoon. Someone you look up to could surprise you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) • • • • Handle your responsibilities early in the day, as meetings, interpersonal interactions and phone calls will keep you very busy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • You might want to think through someone’s demands. A partner’s unexpected behavior also could take a toll on you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • A close partner or an associate demands a lot of your attention. Confusion surrounds you; do not take someone’s behavior personally.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • • Deal with someone’s requests. You could be aggravated on some level, but it would be worth it to step back and evaluate your mood before taking action.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) • • • Those around you are full of themselves right now, which could force you to back off some. You just might want to go along with the program.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) • • • • Your creative ideas mark the morning. By the afternoon, it is business as usual. Take time with a parent or boss who might need some help.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) • • • Confusion forces your hand. A misunderstanding helps you initiate a long-overdue conversation. A brainstorming session demonstrates your creativity.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) • • • You might want to spend more time at home or with a family member. Even if you have to work, you still can plan on making time with this person afterward.
