Born today, you are quite a charismatic individual. You are able to attract attention no matter where you go or what you do, though there are times, surely, when you might prefer to be overlooked or left completely alone! You have a great many attractive traits, and those who are fortunate enough to share their lives with you are somehow made the better for it, directly and indirectly. You have the makings of a fine storyteller; you understand how to capture the interest of others, how to lead them along a winding journey of the imagination and how to finish it all with some kind of meaning or moral. Clearly, you're someone others want to share social time with.
You have perhaps one talent that shines more brightly than others. If you develop it to the fullest, you are almost certain to enjoy unmatched success and a kind of longevity that is rare, indeed. You will never do harm to another in your quest for success; you will try to treat everyone in a fair, evenhanded manner.
Also born on this date are: Matt Damon, actor and writer; Stephanie Zimbalist, actress; Sigourney Weaver, actress; Chevy Chase, actor and comedian; R.L. Stine, author; Jesse Jackson, civil rights leader; Paul Hogan, actor; Rona Barrett, columnist; Juan Peron, Argentinian president.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your approach is valid, but it may be somewhat outdated. There are times when you cling to the old-fashioned with faithful stubbornness.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- An offer comes your way that you will want to look at quite carefully. Resist the temptation to say "no" until your study is complete.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can show someone else just what it means to have a good time today, and in the process a close and fun-filled friendship is formed.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be tempted to do something that is not entirely sanctioned, but which could help you climb out of your current rut. Use care!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You and a friend are on the verge of an agreement that, if met, will provide both of you with something you want without any real difficulties.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are looking forward to having more time to do the things you want to do, but first you must do a few things that you have to do.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to use a little more creativity than usual in order to avoid a growing problem at home. Someone isn't playing fair!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can impress someone with your fair and unbiased approach to an otherwise highly volatile issue. You can save the day!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to face quite an obstacle before passing to a new level of accomplishment. This is a test of sorts.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Take care that you don't give away too many secrets! Your success at this time depends on a certain degree of mystery.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may feel yourself losing touch with your own center for a while. This topsy-turvy sensation shouldn't last long, however.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Only you can prevent what you most fear. No one else is in a position to understand or anticipate what you need to avoid.
