Your Birthday by Stella Wilder

Your Birthday For October 17, 2020

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Are you pulling more than your own weight? Today is a good day to examine the situation and insist that things become more equitable.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Consistency can work wonders for you today, though some may criticize you for not being more creative. You're making some hard decisions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The success you enjoy today is due, in part, to what someone has recently given you. It's time to pay that debt in your unique manner.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must say "no" today in order to pave the way for a resounding "yes" later on. Some may not understand, but you get the support you need.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're eager to know what is going on behind closed doors today -- but is that really your business? You do have skin in the game, surely.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The odds will seem to be in your favor for a time today, and you must act within a very small window of opportunity or lose that advantage.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The surprises in store for you may be many or few, but in either case you'll surely find a way to make very quick progress as a result.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to go to an untried source for the information you require today. Let someone do the scouting for you and offer a report.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You understand much about what's been going on around you, and today you'll have the chance to take action that can make a difference.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be put to the test today by someone who isn't satisfied that your actions are supported by the status quo. This gets complicated.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can give a friend what he or she needs -- and just at the right moment. When you have the time to tend to your own business, you must be efficient.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Mind the clock today, and know that when the time comes for you to stop what you're doing and move on, there is little you can do about it.
