Born today, you are always at your most content when you are working creatively with others to effect change in the world around you and improve the lives of those less fortunate than yourself. This is not to say that you are entirely selfless in your efforts; on the contrary, you desire tangible rewards, monetary gain, and recognition as much as anyone else, but you are driven to attain these in endeavors that are philanthropic at heart. You are often recognized for your good ideas, and there will surely be times when your advice and counsel are sought by those seeking solutions to the world's problems.
You enjoy the social scene, but you are far more interested in having one or two intimate friends than a whole coterie of acquaintances and hangers-on. A good time, to you, is often a deep and productive conversation -- usually one that leads to action that, in turn, leads to measurable results. You are not fond of small talk.
Also born on this date are: Annette Funicello, actress; Sarah Bernhardt, actress; Catherine Deneuve, actress; Jeff Goldblum, actor; Tony Roberts, actor; Timothy Leary, professor; Brian Boitano, Olympic figure skater; Karl Jansky, physicist.
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 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to think of someone else throughout much of the day. Whether friend or loved one, he or she is the center of all.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Practice will not necessarily make perfect, but it will allow you to determine whether the endeavor is right for you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are likely to run up against an obstacle that proves difficult to assess and navigate. You may simply want to change course.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're waiting on someone who may not realize how closely connected to you his or her efforts really are. Get in touch however you can.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're going to want to make someone else wait until you are ready to do what he or she has asked of you. There is no hurry.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're being too hard on yourself right now. There's no reason to think that you're past your prime; you can pass a coming test with ease.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A casual flirtation turns into something much more involved -- and possibly dangerous -- if you are not careful to observe certain boundaries.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are working on a plan that could, if brought to fruition, bring you closer to your ultimate goal than ever before.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Going about your business in a quiet, unassuming fashion is the best bet. Any attempt to attract attention can ring false.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not get the reaction you are seeking, but you can work with what you get and turn it into something worthwhile.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be feeling disconnected or even scatterbrained until a loved one comes to you with a problem that focuses you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Now is the time for you to buckle down and get something done without letting any more time pass. You've ignored other opportunities already!
