IF OCT. 5 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actress Kate Winslet (1975) shares your birthday. You are friendly and social. Justice and fair treatment are important to you and you have high ideals, which is why you want to make the world a better place. One reason you can succeed at doing this is because people like you. You will work diligently for a good cause but you are also high-spirited and fun-loving. This year an important choice will arise. Choose wisely.

◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your loved ones, especially partnerships and close friends, are more important to you. You might even feel jealous of someone. Because you are emotional (the Moon is opposite your sign), guard against automatic knee-jerk reactions. Be cool.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You have to pay attention to others. You might have to offer your services to be supportive but it’s not a big deal, for you’re better organized. You will especially love to organize home crafts and hygiene items and all that stuff that lives in closets and drawers. Find a home for things.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Enjoy socializing with others because this can be a playful, lighthearted day. Romance will be equally yummy and more emotional than usual. You’ll enjoy playful times with children as well as sports events. Basically, you want to have fun!
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Cocoon at home. You need to retire somewhere by yourself to contemplate your navel. Discussions with a female relative could be significant. This is the kind of day where thoughts of your past make you see how much your life is controlled by long-held habits.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A busy day! You want mental stimulation and change. Short trips will appeal along with shopping and talking to others. (Check with the Moon Alert before spending money.) In conversation with others, you’re not satisfied with superficial chitchat. You want the skinny.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You might feel possessive about something today. You might also come up with some clever money-making ideas. This is because your focus is on your earnings, cash flow and possessions. You might have to defend your values to someone. It happens.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Yesterday and today your personal considerations override everything else. Yet, you’re sensitive to the moods of others, which is why you’ll be sympathetic to someone who needs attention. Of course, you want some nurturing, too. Coochy-coo!
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Give yourself a rest. Your ambition is aroused and with Mercury, Venus and Saturn in your sign you’ve been talking to everyone. This is why you need to replenish and restore yourself. Gather ye junk food while ye may.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Talk to others about your hopes and dreams because their feedback will help you. This is a good day to think about goals and how you can begin to move toward making them a reality. Long-range planning is one thing, but getting things started is realism.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Because personal details about your private life might be public today, be aware of what’s going on around you. You might need to do some damage control. (Public arguments are a no-no.) You might also want to help someone you know through your work. In doing so, you could blur the distinction between you and a boss.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Because you need a change of scenery, do something different. Go someplace you’ve never been before. Travel if you can. Talk to people from different countries and other backgrounds. At least, visit ethnic restaurants or take a different route to or from work.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): If you are dealing with others regarding shared property, loans, inheritances and anything you own jointly, organize your thoughts. What can you do that will impact these areas in a way that ultimately helps you down the road? Think about it.
