Born today, you are a contradiction in styles, types and traits, but when taken all together, all your characteristics add up to a stunning, striking, formidable individual in all respects! You are rather mercurial in nature, and you are not the kind to follow a single path faithfully through the years. You would much rather explore freely the opportunities and options available to you, day after day, rather than settle for a single line of endeavor -- or a single mode of being. You are hard to pin down; the only thing one can say about you with any confidence is that you are not always what you seem to be. In that, of course, you are always consistent!
There is much of the child in you, and there always will be. You are determined to hang on to that aspect of your personality through thick and thin, and you may well win much of your success in life simply because of your childlike outlook and behavior. Some may want you to grow up, but you know better than that!
Also born on this date are: Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York; Penny Marshall, actress and director; Linda Lavin, actress; Emeril Lagasse, celebrity chef; Lee Iacocca, automaker; Mario Puzo, author.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Most "accidents" today are not anything of the kind, and you'll realize this when you begin to assess the reasons for the day's developments.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your behavior isn't likely to go unnoticed, so take care that you are doing only that for which you want to be remembered!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Take care not to throw your weight around; a subtle approach, understanding and sensitive, is more likely to get the job done.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be trying to do something in a manner that is no longer employed by others. Still, old-fashioned methods are sometimes best for you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're being noticed, and you're not even having to do anything outrageous, unexpected, or out of the ordinary.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're likely to avoid serious danger with the help of a friend who knows just what kind of situation you are facing -- and why.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be in charge of someone who is in no mood to be held down in any way. Your only choice may be to loosen the reins more than usual.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may miss out on something that doesn't seem to affect you at first, but later on you'll wish you had joined in.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not fully understand just what is being asked of you, as it isn't in accordance with what you usually provide.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be in no mood to indulge in the social scene, yet there may be some very real good to be had from taking part.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can do much to lift another's spirits, but doing too much may have an adverse affect. Judge your contribution carefully.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be in an unusual position that requires you to step out of your comfort zone and do something you've not done before.
