For Thursday, Oct. 12
Those with birthdays today: You can do no wrong, as long as you don't try to abuse the natural gifts the planets bestow upon you this year. Your actions often reflect an inner creativity. If you are single, your romantic life is exciting. Don't count on a relationship being long-term until it is. If attached, follow through with plans the two of you have talked about for years. ARIES has much to learn from you, and you from ARIES.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
**** Reach out for others. You might need to light a fire under a loved one to motivate him. An associate reacts in a most interesting manner. Don't trigger; become creative. Tonight: Consider a getaway.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
