Happy birthday for Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017:
This year you can be intuitive and sensitive at times, yet at other times you can be assertive, direct and demanding. Relating to you is exciting, to say the very least. You will be more direct and accepting. Your popularity depends on your ability to accept others as they are. If you are single, you will learn how to relate to people who are different from you. Enjoy this process. If you are attached, the two of you seem to spend endless hours chatting together. You will experience many intense but fun moments together. ARIES can be very challenging.
