Born today, you have sound and deep-rooted beliefs that reach to the very core of your being, and yet you sometimes do not know quite how to apply those beliefs to your daily life. You have great confidence, born of those beliefs, but when it comes to everyday practical issues, you sometimes fall short -- not because you are unable, but because you suddenly find your confidence waning inexplicably.
You have tremendous staying power, and can stick with a thing even when difficulties mount one upon another. You will often outlast others, and through sheer will and tenacity you will achieve your goals -- provided, of course, you do not stand in your own way by thinking that you cannot!
Also born on this date are: Mark McGwire, baseball player; Randy Quaid, actor; Rod Carew, baseball player; Stella Stevens, actress; Julie Andrews, actress and singer; Jimmy Carter, U.S. president; James Whitmore, actor; Walter Matthau, actor; Bonnie Parker, outlaw.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The unintended may well be unavoidable today; you're going to have to get used to making certain mistakes -- at least for the time being.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is not the time to rest on your laurels; there is always someone ready to challenge you, and you must be prepared to meet that challenge.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are likely to benefit from a revelation of sorts today -- though others may simply think you're off your rocker!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll come face-to-face with a danger that you have feared for quite some time -- but today, you're better equipped to deal with it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- An ill-conceived plan may actually be more hazardous to you right now than no plan at all. Make sure your ideas are sound and realistic.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The routine you most enjoy may not serve you well today, and you'll know it as soon as you are faced with a problem you did not anticipate.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can share information with others today that makes an immediate difference to all concerned once it is heard and assimilated.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You will have to tend to certain responsibilities in an order that doesn't see to make sense to you -- but you can forge ahead anyway.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be slowed by an inability to see things as clearly as usual. Focus as best you can on ideas that are presented directly.
