Born today, you like to go after things with a kind of energy that is rare, and a level of commitment that is virtually unmatched by anyone born under your sign -- or any sign, for that matter. You are likely to know exactly what you want out of life at a remarkably early age. From that time on, everything you do will be designed to prepare you for success and propel you toward it at a remarkable pace. You may, indeed, have everything you ever wanted when you are still quite young. The danger then, of course, is that the rest of your life may pale in comparison to your earlier years.
You can keep bad things from happening by keeping yourself from those who do bad things -- and though this may seem almost ridiculously simple, the truth is that not everyone is able to steer clear of such dangerous people. You do, however -- and this is something that will hold you in good stead always.
Also born on this date are: Bode Miller, Olympic skier; Kirk Cameron, actor; Hugh Jackman, actor; Susan Anton, actress and model; Luciano Pavarotti, operatic tenor.
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.
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Others may consider your work something of a parlor game, but you have a way of doing it that is entertaining to the masses.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A friend may do something that paints you in a bad light, but it is all in fun. You'll realize that nothing important is at stake.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The more you think everything is in order and under control, the more likely you will be to uncover something rampant. Use care.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be able to express yourself in a unique and highly effective fashion, but not everyone will understand your motives.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to decipher messages for others even while you try to interpret others that come to you through similar channels.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can undergo a significant change, but not everyone need know it. What is different is something deep beneath the surface.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may receive a piece of advice that fits you perfectly, though you did not ask for it. Other benefits come to you by day's end.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may find yourself working alongside another even though your primary motives are self-serving.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Trouble comes to you only if you refuse to acknowledge certain key circumstances that you cannot control.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What happens early in the day may not amount to much for a while, but by day's end you'll begin to reap very clear benefits.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You cannot afford to do things in the wrong order, as the results you get may go against everything you're working toward.
