Your Birthday Horoscope
IF ITS YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY your year ahead will be content within yourself and at home despite one partner being overly evasive and other loved ones landing you with heavier responsibilities. You'll cope admirably and not be backwards about expressing your views or pushing for what you want. After New Year your social self-confidence will soar. You'll put a higher value on yourself and expect others to do the same. Your standing at work will also rise because of your positive input.
Today's Horoscope for Friday September 20th
You will be taking a hard headed line, focussing on what is practical and sensible. You are uneasy about "pie in the sky" ideas or lofty discussions about vague notions, which never seem to lead anywhere. So you may get edgy about carelessness or sloppiness in workmates or those you handle money with. Just don't get too nit-picky. If you want more prominence, you're going to have to do things that draw other people's attention to you.

Your Monthly Horoscope for September
Your birthday Sun is getting a high-octane boost from Mars as well as chatty Mercury and charming Venus all in your own sign. So your feet won't hit the floor as you push ahead with vigour, sweeping obstacles to one side. You'll feel more vitality plus than for a while so no point in letting your super-charged energy and confidence go to waste. You'll be happier at home and with the family even if one member does take your good nature too much for granted. Treat a close partner with kid gloves since they'll either be preoccupied with their own concerns or drifting around in a haze. There's no sense in trying to pin them down until they are back in focus. In the final few days you'll be spending and saving money at the same time, keen to pamper yourself and also boost your security.
and Next Month's Horoscope for October
As a practical though not very materialistic sign you are usually good at staying on top of financial details though not very possessive or greedy about acquiring more. This month, however will find you in overdrive, determined to make more, improve your security and get what you're owed. No one will short change or try to pull the wool over your eyes. Your spending may shoot up since pleasure will also be on your mind but security will come first. Thoughtful gestures from everyday mates at work and in the neighbourhood will make you aware you don't have to move far to find affection. It won't be grand passion but more than welcome all the same. Towards mid month there'll be good news about a domestic or family matter. And although your emotional relationships will be challenging and at times rather unsettled, you'll feel you're heading in the right direction. A busy final few days will keep you on the run, in a varied schedule, stretched but never bored.

Which isn't to say you won't feel weighed down at times by the responsibilities that loved ones are landing on you. There'll be less time and energy for kicking up your heels socially. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't try to inject more adventure into your leisure activities and demand more attention for yourself. Your heart will yearn for more exciting trips and travel so make the effort to move out of your comfort zone once in a while. You'll be exploring new ideas and belief systems and opening your mind to a new view of the world. If those close scoff at your unconventional interests you won't care. April to June will find you battling ambitiously ahead, determined to make your mark and gain recognition for your talents. Though it'll be all too tempting to withdraw into your intimate surroundings and stay in your comfortable shell.

A wider circle of friends will be around to keep you company and offer advice.
