HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Oct. 12, 2018
This year you open up to new adventures. Your willingness to let go and take a leap into the unknown marks your year. You gain vitality and a more authentic life. If you are single, your inclination might be to play the field. Recognize that the person you choose to be with today might not be the person you choose in three months. If you are attached, your significant other might be shocked by your choices, but he or she will see a happier person as a result. At that point, your sense of connection will strengthen. SAGITTARIUS often pushes you to take risks.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Your strength might be tested early on. Others seem to be, and probably are, demanding more than they should. As you have your boundaries tested, review why they are established. Your mind frees up to viewing this matter from a new perspective. Tonight: Do what you need to do.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
You could feel unable to honor another person's request. Give it a shot, and let the party know where you are coming from. You discover that working as a team is far more powerful than working alone. You need to say little at this point. Tonight: Stay present in the moment.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You might not want as much information as someone decides to give you. Fatigue shapes up as a major issue or defense mechanism, especially if you're pushed too hard. You might need some distance to renew your enthusiasm about life. Tonight: Accept an exciting invitation.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
You've been on a roll, yet at this time you need to catch up on a myriad of details. Don't make a big deal out of this matter. Just make a list and complete it the best way you know how. For some of you, this list could carry you into the weekend. Tonight: Join a pal for dinner.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
You've maintained remarkable self-restraint when dealing with a roommate or family member. You decide to let go and worry less. You leap into a much happier mindset, ready to take off at the drop of a hat. If you can, call it early. Tonight: Make the most of the moment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You've given 100 percent of your energy to a certain project and to keeping communication flourishing. Your efforts certainly stand out, even if you don't like the results. You could be ready to cocoon a bit, or to deal with a domestic matter that has been on hold. Tonight: Order in.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Keep a conversation going, and don't shy away from what is being said. Sometimes you might not like what you hear, but that doesn't mean you need to close down. Do not become punitive. Work with a present situation; it will change soon enough. Tonight: Go out with friends.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Curb a need to be possessive. Sometimes you experience intense jealousy. Know your limits. Understand what is impossible to accomplish. You cannot control anyone but yourself. Let others decide how much they want to give. Tonight: Lie low, at least for a little while.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You might be overthinking a situation, replaying it over and over in your head. You could feel as if you are finally getting somewhere. You need to be more spontaneous. What you achieve will be better as a result. Tonight: Others greet your impulsiveness with a smile.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You might need to slow down and keep an eye on recent gains. You've expressed yourself in a tumultuous way. You need some time to consolidate recent gains before you head into another high-energy period. Play this weekend low-key. Tonight: Out among the crowds.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your sense of direction and a need to experience a new situation drive you to join a group of friends. As open as you are to change, the need to have more security in other areas of your life is deep. Listen to what a loved one has to say. Tonight: Start the weekend with a celebration.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
You could be overly tired from staying on top of some pending changes. You might be eyeing a trip or signing up for a workshop. What you will find out is that a change in how you view issues can eradicate the problem altogether. Tonight: Open up to different styles.
