Born today, you always have a great deal going on beneath the surface, though you try to portray yourself as one who is always calm, unflappable and even somewhat simple in thought and action. The truth, of course, is that you are extremely capable in all ways, and you are likely to develop lofty ambitions as a child, which will compel you to reach, to strive, to learn and to put yourself on the line again and again throughout your lifetime. You can be rather impulsive at times, and you must now and then put a stopper in the vessel of your emotions, lest you express yourself inappropriately.
You have a bright, positive and charming nature -- the kind that other people call a winning personality. When others are faced with a problem, you always strive to be a part of the solution, and cannot abide those who sit back and accept that a negative development cannot be reversed.
Also born on this date are: Nancy Kerrigan, Olympic ice skater; Marie Osmond, singer and entertainer; Margaret Thatcher, British prime minister; Paul Simon, singer; Jerry Rice, football player; Cornel Wilde, actor; Sammy Hagar, rocker; Yves Montand, actor.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're sure to encounter more than your share of contradictions today, but fortunately you'll know how to react to most of them.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Money matters are likely to require more time and effort from you today, and you'll have to push certain other issues to the back burner.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What someone else is unable to do on his or her own you should have no trouble accomplishing alone. The timing is just right.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It may be quite an emotional day -- not because you are more vulnerable than usual, but because of the issues that arise.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may receive assistance from someone you least expected to lend you a hand -- and it will be of a kind that you rarely receive from others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Avoid making any impulsive decisions; you don't know how they may affect loved ones, and your first duty is to protect them as best you can.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- There's no holding you back when you grab on to the strand of something and start pulling. You want to know all of what's happening.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A recent reunion of sorts has you feeling differently about the way things are -- not that you want to make changes just yet.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may find yourself indulging in some sweet memories today -- and wishing that you could relive one or two past glories.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not get all the answers you seek today, but you should keep asking questions. You'll get something done.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You want to present yourself properly in a situation that is foreign to you -- and this may take some special study.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're going to have to accept the fact that not everyone is willing to jump on the bandwagon today and help you in a personal endeavor.
