Born today, you are likely to find temptation all around you in life. Your journey is likely to be fraught with dangers resulting from your encounters, simply because it is so difficult for you to say "no" when an opportunity presents itself to explore, experiment or simply enjoy yourself. This is not only true where relationships are concerned. Although it is likely that you have a strong sex drive and a desire to explore all manner of sensuous pleasures, the truth is that you can be rather indulgent in all kinds of ways. If this is kept in balance, you can avoid all manner of dangers that overindulgence can bring.
You may seem to yourself to be two different people. The one you present to the world at large is quite different from the one you live with day after day in private -- or so you think. The truth is that they are actually quite similar; at times, you can be a victim of your own self-deception.
Also born on this date are: "Weird Al" Yankovic, singer and satirist; Pele, soccer player; Michael Crichton, writer; Johnny Carson, television host; Ang Lee, filmmaker.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you know and what you know how to do will both be on display. Others will join you when given the opportunity to participate.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your special knack for combining the learned and the instinctive will serve you well throughout this day filled with opportunity.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be taken by surprise when others respond favorably to something you only do for the purpose of causing a stir. Perhaps you can change your overall tack.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll be grateful to one who steers you in the right direction and coaxes from you a top-notch performance under unkind circumstances.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can weigh the odds all you want, but at some point you're going to have to decide to move forward or cease all efforts.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You and a member of the opposite sex may have the opportunity to trade roles. What you learn may surprise you!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Take care that you do not overstep your bounds. Yes, you are learning to push those boundaries a bit, but propriety is still an issue.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can give your audience a great deal of enjoyment, but take care you stick to the script. Too much improvisation can be a danger.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll want to listen carefully to the instructions and guidance of someone in charge. Trust this person to show you the way.
