By Mariana Rivas

A baby born today has a Sun in Libra and a Moon in Cancer.

Happy birthday for Tuesday October 2, 2018:
This year you will grow and see life differently. Your goals, interests and relationships will change or adapt. If you are single, the person you choose now might not be the same person you choose in a year. Think of yourself as going shopping and seeing who fits you best. If you are attached, you and your partner become inordinately content with each other. Many people look at you as a couple and think that you act like newlyweds. CANCER is quite emotional but has feelings that are similar to yours.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Pressure builds. Your understanding and bright solutions will help improve whatever project you take on. As always, your instincts come out to direct you when chaos or confusion erupts. You could find that a different approach might be better for everyone involved. Tonight: Head home.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You tend to express yourself deliberately and with thought. You love brainstorming sessions and get-togethers with your peers. Often, if you share more, you inspire others, and vice versa. Once an issue is resolved, you will want to celebrate. Tonight: Out and about.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Be aware of the cost of continuing as you have. You have gone overboard in several different ways as of late. Before you have to pay the piper, attempt to rein yourself in. Your imagination might cause you a problem in being realistic. Tonight: Pay bills, then decide.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Reach out to a loved one. Ask yourself if you have a more effective way of helping pull this person out of the doldrums. Know that a partner could be unusually controlling. If you do not want to deal with this, do not react. Tonight: Share your thoughts with those around you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Read between the lines with others. You also might need to take a break from your present pace. Communication proves to be exciting and allows greater give-and-take between you and others. A change of pace in the near future seems appropriate. Tonight: Ask a friend for some feedback.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A meeting could be provocative and changeable. Once you get past your initial reaction, you could be surprised by what is happening around you. Know that others are well-intended. You might be confused by a partner’s or loved one’s reaction. Tonight: Remain optimistic.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Take charge and do not feel intimidated by a higher-up. Communication flourishes and inspires you with a work-related matter. Pull away from someone who indicates a my-way-or-the-highway situation. Refuse to be intimidated. Tonight: Take the word “no” out of your vocabulary.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Reach out to a loved one or an expert at a distance. Until you speak to a particular person, you could feel as though you have no choice. Use caution with the words you choose. Someone might be pushing you too hard to agree with him or her. Tonight: Treat your mind to music.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Deal with others on a one-on-one level. Many ideas and thoughts could float between you. If you are bored by life, you might change those feelings within the next few days. Go with the flow. An associate becomes somewhat rebellious. Tonight: Be direct with a loved one.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be aware of how a personal situation could change if given half a chance. You tend to make demands on others. You also put some hard terms on them. If someone walks away as a result, do not be surprised. Being firm does not work with everyone. Tonight: Listen to a request.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Listen to news carefully. You have a lot of ground to cover; if you stay focused, you will be able to do just that. Use care with your finances. You might not be getting all the facts right now, so wait until you are sure that you have them. Tonight: Try a healthy dinner for two.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might want to be more creative and dynamic than you have been in the recent past. Others often feel inspired by you, but they are not sure that they can get behind one of your ideas. Make sure you let them know that the idea is workable. Tonight: Let go and enjoy!
