Libra is a cardinal air sign, seeking balance and justice.

Anyone born this week is faced with a project that includes combining the lovely Libra with the intense Scorpio. This birthday person is born on the cusp of Libra and Scorpio.

This means they are challenged with the need to combine two totally unique energies together into one charming persona.

This would be a task for anyone without the soul of a magician and the mind of a detective. When they join the two together with wisdom and charm, they are faced with the personality of a secret lover.

They are able to pull it off with the charm and social grace of the Libra with the intense, yet mystical nature of the Scorpio. You end up with a keeper of secrets, yet a social charmer.

How this is accomplished is the secret of anyone born this week. Find one and become a secret pal and you may learn the secret.

People born this week: Daryl Hall of Hall and Oates, Oct. 11, 1946; Marion Jones, Oct. 12, 1975; Marie Osmond, Oct. 13, 1959; Ralph Lauren, Oct. 14, 1939; C.P. Snow, Oct. 15, 1905; Angela Lansbury, Oct. 16, 1925; Rita Hayworth, Oct. 17, 1918; Lee Harvey Oswald, Oct. 18, 1939.


Best day to start anything new this week would be Wednesday, Oct. 16, after 9:18 p.m. when the moon goes into Aries. There will be plenty of emotional noise around since the lunar eclipse during the full moon happens next Friday. So watch yourself when it comes to tears and arguments. As a matter of fact, it would be smart of you to steer clear of vocal battles that you can’t win without making enemies. The best-case scenario is to smile and take a walk.


Aries (March 21 to April 20) If you continue to find yourself in a mumbo jumbo kind of mood, try to clear it up before Mercury goes retrograde on Oct. 21. You simply can’t stay in a confused state much longer. It is time to clear up the problems and move on. Just let things move in a new direction and smile.

Rock Review: The Invasion, Redux

Taurus (April 21 to May 20) A good pal could be giving you some double-talk and it is time to stop listening. You are too smart to fall for some of the nonsense around you right now. Best thing might be to ignore it or gather up your wits and move on. Wasting more time on an issue you can’t solve is not productive.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) You should be swinging from the treetops and, if you aren’t, look again at the magic in your life. Sometimes we miss the real meaning of what is happening because we move so fast. Slow down a little and take the time to see how lucky you are today. A new friend could become a driving force in your life.

Cancer (June 21 to July 20) No matter how things may look to you now, you are headed in a new direction and it will be just what you really want. There is no need to push yourself so hard because you are missing some of the really important life lessons. Consider your own needs as you move forward in your journey to a new life.

Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) When you get a feeling of being betrayed it would be wise to review the deeds you have been involved with in the past few weeks and go from there. The only one who can betray you is you. So stay calm and know it is just your imagination working overtime. Remaining calm is your best revenge.

Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) It might be time to come down off your mental and physical high and deal with the real world once again. You may feel overworked and underpaid, but that won’t last forever. You are moving into a good place and it is time to realize it and keep up your tip-top agenda at your work.

Libra (Sept. 21 to Nov. 20) As you celebrate another year, count your blessings and look forward to a payoff. This is no time to look back. It happens to be time to plan your future. It may look dim sometimes, but know that new ideas are on their way and you will be delighted once the change is made.

Theater Review: 'Newsies'

Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) You will have an easier time getting your way if you relax and avoid any arguments. Instead of anger try being your charming self and you can’t lose. This is your time to get your way, but only if you use charm. So go slowly and use your social skills, then you will be the winner.

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) Taking a risk now is not really a wise move. You will be far better off in the long run if you slow down, think things over and then do nothing for at least a week. In that way you will avoid making some wrong decisions that will make you unhappy in the near future.

Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) The decisions you are now contemplating will have a lasting impact on your future. So reorganize your thinking and then make some decisions. Just keep thinking success as you go about making the changes and your business dreams could come true. Just think twice and then move.

Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) Your new attitude will be noticed by everyone who knows you, so stick to the new you and enjoy the impact on your life. Remember, holding on to anger hurts you more than anyone. A friend could use a quick call now and then as he goes through a difficult time.

Pisces (Feb. 20 to March 21) The added responsibility you recently undertook will blossom into something good in the near future. So see what is happening now as a good omen of things to come. Listen to your own intuition when it comes to who you trust with your secrets. Otherwise, you will deal with some spiritual pain.
