Born today, you are not the kind to come at a project with the same old methods and motive. You are such an original that when you sign on to a job you can be sure that others will be keenly interested in what you will bring to it -- and find it almost impossible to anticipate that with any real accuracy. It's anyone's guess what you will do at any given time -- but you always have a plan, and you never do anything simply by accident. There is always, as the poet says, a "method to your madness." You are a daring and adventurous individual, and you're drawn to those activities that put your skills to a true test.
The attraction you have toward those who seem dangerous is something you will have to contend with throughout your lifetime. You like people who do not fit any apparent mold, who march to the beat of their own drums and who do not always stand upon the most solid foundation. You realize, too, that this does not always lead to happiness!
Also born on this date are: Harry Hamlin, actor; Grace Slick, singer; Louis Malle, filmmaker; Ruth Gordon, actress; Charles Atlas, fitness guru; Ezra Pound, poet; John Adams, U.S. patriot and president.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 31
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're interested in promoting certain ideas in new ways -- but a question of safety and security may keep you from doing all you can.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are judging another in a way that should be avoided -- and it's all a misunderstanding springing from a chance encounter.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can rely on a friend to do what is necessary to promote a current project without threatening your own autonomy one bit.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What you have to say may be difficult for some people to hear -- but you know that it must be said without apology, before the day is out.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A key issue may not be fully understood -- either by your or others directly involved with you. Guesswork may be unavoidable.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can expect to encounter some rough terrain as you travel to previously unexplored territory -- literally or figuratively.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can maintain a calm, rational stance today even while those around you seem to be losing their cool. Much depends on timing during the evening.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your unique perspective will allow you freedom throughout the day -- and it can be shared liberally with those around you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A hidden danger lurks not far from home today. You'll want to take all necessary precautions -- but you cannot avoid all hazards.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone far from home holds the key to a personal mystery you have been working on for some time. Get in touch right now!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- An awkward situation is eased simply by being honest about your own sense of discomfort. This may be something you can laugh about.
