A baby born today has a Sun in Libra and a Moon in Taurus if born before 9:44 p.m. (ET). Afterward, the Moon will be in Gemini.

Happy birthday for Sunday, Oct. 8, 2017:
This year you express a preference to relate more deeply to others on a one-on-one level. You find that you gain a better understanding of people this way. If you are single, you quickly will be able to tell whether someone is serious about you. You could meet the right person this year. If you are attached, the two of you sometimes have difficulty saying what you want. Try to get over these periods, as it is important to communicate your needs. GEMINI can give you a lesson in getting past your shyness.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
