Born today, you are not likely to be the most social individual born under your sign -- or, rather, you're not likely to enjoy being social as much as others. The truth is that you can be insecure and even shy, much more than others might guess, and this makes social situations far more difficult for you than they would otherwise be. To mix and mingle with others can be very hard work for you -- so you often choose to go it alone and avoid situations that require you to be something you're not. Despite this, you are likely to be widely admired throughout your lifetime -- and often imitated, too!
You have a great deal of personal style, and you're driven to learn as much as you can about how people have behaved in times gone by, as well as in other cultures. You pride yourself on your ability to dress well and carry yourself with that "certain something."
Also born on this date are: Margot Kidder, actress; Rita Hayworth, actress; Jean Arthur, actress; Eminem, rapper; Alan Jackson, singer; Evel Knievel, daredevil; Montgomery Clift, actor.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You won't be able to avoid doing more than expected, simply because things are becoming more complicated than anyone had foreseen.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A combination of the technical and the instinctive will allow you to succeed where others may find only chaos and confusion.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're not always willing to wager on something that is not a sure thing, but today you feel as though the potential gains are worth the risk.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can prove that you know what you are talking about while winning over those who may, in the recent past, have been vocal critics.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're not all alone in whatever situation is most significant to you. Thinking you are will only make matters worse.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You and a friend may disagree on a few minor details, but overall you are of one mind when it comes to your overall intentions.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The more logically you approach a current dilemma, the more you may feel yourself getting away from what really matters. Instinct counts!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may find yourself involved in an adventure that was not well-planned but that can come off without a hitch because of your oversight.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The trivial takes on unusual significance. Put your money where your mouth is during evening hours. Find a kindred spirit.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Things may take on a whole new meaning as you step into unfamiliar territory. You can very soon be taken for an expert.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The secret to your success is likely your ability to be confident in situations that are unfamiliar to you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's important for you to economize, certainly, but you won't want to sacrifice certain things merely to save money -- at least not now.
