Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For October 19, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll find yourself faced with a great many more contradictions today than usual -- but you can help others sort things out in your usual way.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your care and concern may have been misplaced recently, and today you'll realize just where your loyalties really lie. Someone is grateful.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You and a rival have been racing against each other for quite some time. Today, you may want to slow down a bit and let him take the lead.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You need a little more space than usual today -- but not for the reason you think. It's time to set your mind to a central personal issue.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be asked to do something for someone else today that doesn't come at all naturally to you -- but you'll benefit in the end, surely.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not be projecting the right image at this time. Take an honest look at yourself and others, and note the clear comparison.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll want to work as closely as you can with a partner today -- but not just anyone will do. You know whom you want on your team.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your ability to follow the rules without losing touch with your own center will impress those working with you today. Share what you know.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- If you're looking at things in an ordinary, routine way, then the secrets they hold are sure to elude you. Look through a different lens.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The harder you try to make things turn out "just right" today, the more likely they will be to disappoint you. Use a lighter touch.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may want to adjust your expectations somewhat today, as you have evidence that not everything is as it seems to be. Stand at the ready.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to burn the candle at both ends if you're going to get everything done -- but perhaps not everything has to get done today!
