Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For October 12, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A favor done for another today may lead to a favor you receive in return before you even know you need it. The pace quickens some today.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your capabilities are many, but today you are not likely to be at all impressed with yourself. What has dampened your spirits in this way?

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There are times when what you know and what you think are somehow strangely divergent. It's important for you to look at the facts.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are able to stand up to criticism today; you know what you've done and why, and there's no reason to be ashamed of it in any way.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to take more time today to finish something better than someone else -- but making any sort of comparison would be unfair to both parties.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're eager to see things more clearly after a period of confusion or doubt. Today, things begin to line up very much as hoped and expected.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Something you've tried to hide is likely to be uncovered today; you'll realize that there was no need to conceal it in the first place.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may realize that your efforts at communicating with a certain someone have recently been subpar. It's not too late to start over!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It may be time for you to immerse yourself once more in a favorite legend or historical event. It speaks to you now more than ever.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It's important for you to surround yourself with the right collaborators; today, cooperation in all forms will give you more than strength.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may require someone to help you out of the rut you are currently in; though you have your preference, it's likely to be someone else.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Surprise contact with an old friend gives you the boost you need right now. You're impressed with his or her progress since last you met.
