Born today, you are a strong-willed and charismatic individual with many outstanding talents -- any one of which might be enough to see you acquit yourself well in the professional world. However, you are drawn to pursuits that are creative, even artistic -- though you do not have the stereotypical artistic temperament, but rather proceed with your feet firmly on the ground even as your lofty thoughts reach for the clouds. An early start will enable you to explore many different approaches to your work without risking ultimate failure; thus, as you mature, your record of success will be quite remarkable.
You are not the kind to forsake a happy home life for professional accomplishment and success -- nor are you one to turn away from that success in favor of domestic bliss.
Also born on this date are: Kate Winslet, actress; Guy Pearce, actor; Bernie Mac, actor and comedian; Karen Allen, actress; Glynis Johns, actress; Donald Pleasence, actor; Allen Ludden, game-show host; Ray Kroc, McDonald's founder; Chester A. Arthur, U.S. president.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The devil is in the details, as always; be sure to read all fine print, and listen carefully when others are giving you instructions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may find that your usual methods of instruction are not having the desired effect. This is not necessarily a reflection on you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can capitalize on an error made by someone else today, but you don't want to gloat in any way or make too much of a fuss about it.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be feeling a little off balance today. The reason should be clear toward nightfall.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must do what you can to avoid putting yourself or another in a situation that could result in hurt feelings. Common sense is all it takes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may want to let someone else take a crack at something that you've not been able to get a handle on.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be anticipating an easy time of it today, but in truth, a few unexpected developments require you to do more than you had planned.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may not understand how to get machinery and other technological tools to do what they are supposed to do. You're feeling out of touch!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not recognize just how abrasive your tone can be when sending messages via electronic media; be sure to read and edit!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have the feeling that a new world is in the making, but you're not yet sure if this will be something you will welcome.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll be haunted by a memory that you've been able to keep at bay for quite some time. This may prompt you to reach out to a former friend.
