HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Oct. 18, 2020:
Inspirational, imaginative and forthright, your important lesson this year is to learn to say no and do what you want to do. Which you will be very successful with. You were born to be important. If single, absolute honesty is the best policy, but this year you prefer to keep it to yourself. If attached, you have the most fun with your partner, and this only increases. GEMINI makes you laugh.
