Born today, you are not the kind to conceal your likes and dislikes from the world around you, and you are quite forthright when it comes to expressing your needs and desires. You are not the kind to take "no" for an answer without first doing everything you possibly can to win the argument, the game or the day. You are highly passionate and quite idealistic -- and the combination can make you, of course, a formidable opponent in any kind of contest. You are able to look ahead and anticipate the outcome of a personal trial, and you can adjust your approach even as you proceed, to maximize your chances of success.
You may not use words in a flowery or poetic way -- at least in the old-fashioned sense -- but you get to the point and can be quite persuasive. Indeed, you have what it takes to rise through the ranks quickly, and assume a leadership position.
Also born on this date are: Lillian Gish, actress; Dwight D. Eisenhower, U.S. military leader and president; Ralph Lauren, fashion designer; William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 15
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Work your way from one end of the list to the other and you'll be sure to touch all bases and get things done in a way that makes sense.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be feeling pressure to do something that does not come naturally, and that has you wondering if you really fit in right now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You should be able to perform at the level to which you have become accustomed, even though certain obstacles are unavoidable.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are facing at least two major responsibilities that must be accepted if you are to win the approval of someone in charge today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may not be able to read your opponent well today, so there will be a great deal of trial and error involved as you hone your game.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A previous conflict is not likely to stop you from approaching a new endeavor with confidence. What's behind you is, indeed, behind you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Any doubts you may have about a coming endeavor are likely to be dispelled as soon as you get started. Have you gathered a crack team?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're feeling a little more rhapsodic than usual today. Flights of fancy and a daydream or two can actually serve you quite well. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have a few options on the table, but you cannot act on any of them until you receive news from a confederate who may be far from home.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Any setbacks you may experience today are almost sure to be temporary -- though one may have to investigate an unexpected issue.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are likely to be distinguished not by what you do or say, but how you do or say it. It's style that makes the difference!
