Born today, you are an energetic individual, and the combination of emotional stability, physical strength and native intelligence will surely serve you well throughout your life. There is a risk, however, that you will consider these formidable traits to be the ends, rather than the means -- and if this is the case, you may never truly fulfill your true potential and reach your rather lofty goals. It is essential that you apply your native talents to pursuits that are carefully designed to further your professional pursuits, and that you never simply rest on your laurels, thinking that it is enough to be you.
You love to fall in love -- and indeed, falling in love is often more satisfying to you than being in love. You are one of those individuals for whom courtship is a kind of art, and a long-term, steady relationship is a kind of drudgery. This view is likely to change, however, when you meet that one special someone who is meant for you.
Also born on this date are: Elisabeth Shue, actress; Britt Ekland, actress; Carole Lombard, actress; George Westinghouse, developer and inventor.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Focus on the details, but don't let yourself lose sight of the big picture; it's important that all elements are integrated.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll hear plenty of negative opinions today, and you must be sure to give them the same weight as positive ones.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may sense that someone is working against you in a way that is difficult to stop; you'll want to stay on the offensive, of course!
