Born today, you have a great deal of personal drive, and from a young age you will be compelled to explore as much as possible of what lies before you. You aren't the kind to take another's word as gospel; rather, you want to learn about the world through firsthand experience. You are never content to read about things that you could do yourself; you are therefore likely to experience much in life that others only read about! Your perception of the world allows you to take what comes with relative ease, and you never react too strongly to either the light or the dark in the universe; you tend to be quite even-keeled.
Like other Libra natives, you can be rather insecure, but you will learn how to disguise that part of your personality and come off as confident and capable. Others may be surprised to learn that you do not mix and mingle easily even though you know how to do it very well!
Also born on this date are: Pam Dawber, actress; Melina Mercouri, actress; Jean-Claude Van Damme, actor and martial artist; George C. Scott, actor; Jesse Helms, U.S. senator; Chuck Berry, singer-songwriter and musician; Peter Boyle, actor.
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.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your focus is keen and steady, yet you may not be entirely aware of what is going on at the very limits of your perception.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can afford to be just a little more daring. What you want to do is impress another with your ability to take a calculated risk.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A strong start is essential, and it depends on confidence and your honest appraisal of where you stand in relation to others.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your own creativity is on the increase, and you can turn something old into something new and exciting as a result.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Others around you may be losing the ability to keep things lined up correctly, but you have the power to oversee things effectively.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Much that happens today will come as no surprise, but during evening hours you may be startled to learn you've overlooked a significant event.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone who has been insignificant to you in the past is likely to play a prominent role in your affairs before the day is out.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're yearning for something that may no longer be available, so you must chalk this up to the power of nostalgia.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have missed the window for contributing to a group effort. This is what comes of procrastinating! The lesson is learned.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're receiving a great many warnings, but you aren't quite sure how they concern you. Perhaps you were best to pass them on to others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- That which is old and threadbare can be turned into something new, crisp and shiny today with a little love and care.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be tempted to duck out of a meeting or other group forum in favor of private time and a little spontaneous fun.
