By Tamia Banks

A baby born today has a Sun in Libra and a Moon in Scorpio until 12:43 a.m., when the Moon enters Sagittarius.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Oct. 19, 2020:
Independent, free-spirited and outspoken, you create controversy this year, albeit very successful. In privacy, you produce your masterpiece. Sensitive to all that is around you, you may change your work space or living space. If single, you are too rebellious to be pushed into commitment this year, so you fly solo. If attached, you are bound to the hip with your partner. SAGITTARIUS needs space to spread their wings.
