A baby born today has a Sun and Moon in Libra.
Happy birthday for Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2017:
This year your attractiveness, spontaneity and unusual resourcefulness make you a star wherever you are. You might have a difficult moment or two, but you’ll sail right through hassles. If you have wanted to start your own business, this year could be the right time to do it. If you are single, you might need to push away all of your admirers. Your popularity soars so high that one of them might think you are a rock star. If you are attached, the two of you could see the benefits of your upbeat attitude, as long as you don’t become too me-oriented. A fellow LIBRA gives you great advice!
