Born today, you are one of the most competitive individuals born under your sign, and you will put up a fierce, aggressive fight whenever you are challenged -- and even when very little is actually at stake. This aggressive stance springs from a well of passion deep beneath the surface that you must learn to channel productively. Do so, and you can surely rise to the top, shaping and focusing your passions and energies; fail to do this, and you may find yourself angry and frustrated more often than not.
You are not always going to do things the way they "should" be done; those things you do in your own inimitable way are sure to be remembered -- though initial reaction is likely to be mixed. Indeed, some of your greatest successes may at first be considered by others to be failures!
Also born on this date are: Tracy Nelson, actress; Helen Reddy, singer; Minnie Pearl, comedian; Pablo Picasso, artist; Richard E. Byrd, polar explorer; Leo G. Carroll, actor; Georges Bizet, composer.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may find yourself pulled in two or more directions at once today as others make their needs and desires known in no uncertain terms.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may want to assume a more reserved stance today in order to avoid being misunderstood in some way. Your time will come.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll have a chance to shine, but take care that you don't overextend yourself early on. Save something for late in the day!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don't pretend you know things that you don't, or you'll encounter a kind of danger that you are not equipped to address.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can call the shots for a while, but if you begin to falter, there is someone willing and able to step up and take over -- if necessary.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You don't want to do anything halfway today -- nor can you afford to do things in an erratic fashion, or leave things for later.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll be able to control your own situation more successfully than you have in the recent past. Today you can assert your mastery.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.19) -- Things are likely to slow down a bit simply because there are rules and regulations to deal with. You're impatient with red tape!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Apply instinctive responses to what goes on today and you'll understand things better and be able to perform at a higher level.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You and a teammate may disagree about what is best to do to address a breakdown in communication. This in itself is symptomatic!
