Horoscope: October 9, 2020


By Tamia Banks

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

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Oct. 9, 2020:
Multitalented, sensitive and inspirational, you have a penetrating gaze that sees into others’ lives. Extremely magnetic, you do not have to please quite as much. This year is a great success and the finale of a not so great relationship. If single, you are variously involved, sometimes when you shouldn’t be. No serious commitment until next April. If attached, you’re bound at the hip. LIBRA is the best hip partner.
