For Thursday, Sept. 29
Those with birthdays today: You don't always want to hear a partner's point of view this year. This person could be quite critical and difficult. Don't deal with others in the here and now, but rather consider the value and importance of their relationship. Learn to focus rather than scatter, which could come naturally this year. If you are single, romance could knock on your door, though getting along with this person has its own set of challenges. If you are attached, take in what your sweetie says and evaluate it. Make it OK to look at life differently. The period between Dec. 28 and Feb. 3 could be touchy. Try to avoid anything major at this time. VIRGO reads you cold.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
