For Thursday, Oct. 20
Those with birthdays today: You might not realize how much excitement surrounds you, as you have a rather vibrant personality. Just the same, your daily life takes on an element of unpredictability, which might shake up many, but you will enjoy it. Your instincts will always be right-on. Follow them. You could be a bit more serious-minded than in the past. You will get what you want, but will need to work hard to achieve the results. If you are single, a relationship might be like cement. Think before you leap in. Extracting yourself might be close to impossible. If you are attached, you might carry a lot of the responsibilities of the bond. GEMINI helps you think through issues.
