For Friday, Sept. 21: This year you focus on your domestic and personal life, though all aspects are important.

Others would like you to be more active, and they will not hesitate to let you know. If you are single, you will gain a sidekick. If you are attached, the two of you need to loosen up more and enjoy the moment.
