Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For September 17, 2019

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What others have to offer isn't likely to render your own contributions obsolete. You can and should play an important role all day long.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone may be expecting you to commit to something that goes against all that you believe in. You'll have to have a difficult conversation.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Distractions abound. Give a friend what you can in support of a new idea. Your involvement will be appreciated -- and handsomely rewarded.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Avoid what you do not know or anything that doesn't come naturally. Today you want to keep yourself in calm, navigable waters. Risks are high.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're not quite sure what someone is getting at, but you suspect there is something going on that you simply cannot condone. State your case.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You don't want to find yourself in over your head today. Stay in the shallow water until you are sure that you can remain afloat.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You receive one or two messages today that, on the surface, appear to be for someone else. You'll discover their significance soon.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A friend or loved one can surely relate to your current circumstances, and vice versa. It's a good day to consider trading places.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may receive news that has you considering cutting short a vacation or business trip. Wait until all facts have been confirmed.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- How you interpret what you see and hear today makes all the difference. Facts are only as influential as you make them; consider all options.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- An overly defensive stance is likely to give too much away to your rivals today. You must keep as much as possible under wraps.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's not enough to be energetic, you must also focus that energy in a way that yields immediate results. Stick to your game plan today.
