A baby born today has a Sun in Virgo and a Moon in Capricorn if born before 7:52 p.m. (ET). Afterward, the Moon will be in Aquarius.

Happy birthday for Wednesday September 19, 2018:
This year you adopt a strong, determined attitude when you focus on any long-term goal. You seem like an unmovable force once you have decided on your path. Your inner circle finds your newfound determination charming. If you are sin- gle, you’ll attract an interesting person who is humorous and appreciative, yet is able to say “no” and mean it. Do not commit unless you are 100 percent sure. If you are attached, your sweetie feels as if he or she is just getting to know you again. Schedule more time together. CAPRICORN intrigues you.

The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Your delightful style and willing ways help others move out of a rut. You might become the cheerleader for several friends and associates. Group discussions produce multiple workable ideas. You will likely decide to veer off- course. Tonight: Swap war stories with a friend.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You see a situation from a more detached perspective than many people. Others often see no benefit from periods of contemplation and thought. You know better and embrace the power of detach- ment, which you enjoy and indulge in regularly. Tonight: The party goes on and on!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

You could be in a situation where you want to allow others to run the show, to their delight. You’ll enjoy sitting back. Visualize more and say very little. You might be pleasantly surprised by what someone comes up with. Tonight: Let your mind float from topic to topic.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You could be questioning details revolving around a key person in your life. Instead of overthinking the matter, let your feelings flow and lead the way. Emotions are sometimes more accu- rate than logical analysis. Tonight: Make it your pleasure to respond to a loved one’s request.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

You will feel a lot better later in the day when you look back at how pro- ductive you’ve been as of late. Make some special time for just you and a loved one you don’t spend enough time with. This action could cause ear-to-ear smiling. Tonight: Start with a leisurely dinner.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You have a unique viewpoint when it comes to handling a key prob- lem. A creative style marks your work and actions in general. Remain open and clear about your choices. Others will lis- ten, though they might not necessarily agree. Tonight: Catch up on some sleep if you can.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might be slow to start. In fact, you might not get started until evening — but once you do, you move with unusual quickness and certainty. You have the ability to accomplish a lot in very little time. Be reasonable about what you expect, even from yourself. Tonight: Dinner for two.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You could be in a position where you want to break away from it all. On some level, your reaction to pressure is part of what causes so many challenging situations. Try to assume a more lais- sez faire attitude, and you will be a lot happier. Tonight: Head home, then decide.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Keep reaching out to someone you care about. You might feel uneasy about dealing with some difficult interac- tions with this person. Ask yourself if you can approach the situation different- ly. Later in the day, communication flour- ishes. Tonight: Chat the night away.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Stay upbeat in how you approach a trying creative venture and the person involved. You might be overly serious in dealing with this person. If you lighten up, the end result could be a lot better. Your positive energy might be needed in various situations. Tonight: All smiles.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

If you feel like withdrawing for a little while, give yourself permission to make those feelings valid. You will expe- rience a surge of energy later in the day that could help you make up for lost time. It is important to have a few calm hours to yourself. Tonight: On top of the world.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Use the daylight hours to the max. A meeting helps you solidify a deci- sion. You might be overly serious about a certain goal. Be willing to listen to oth- ers’ concerns; these thoughts need to be honestly valued. Given time, you’ll real- ize what you desire. Tonight: Catch some zzz’s.
