For Monday, Oct. 4, 2004. Those with birthdays today: Avoid power plays at all costs this year. You might learn to phrase your opinions and thoughts in a more objective manner. Work on understanding others and giving them what they need. As a result, your relationships will improve in all sectors of your life. A sibling or a neighbor might be troublesome or need help. Your natural personality attracts many people. Be open. If you are single, someone quite different will enter your life. If you are attached, plan on that special trip together. Take a workshop together in communicating.
