Born today, you have tremendous drive and tenacity, and you are not likely to quit even when circumstances seem to conspire against you. You will always pursue your goals, no matter what kind of hardship you may experience as a result, but this in itself can prove quite instructive to you, building a great deal of character. You know good from bad -- and bad from mediocre -- and you will always choose one extreme or another over that which rests comfortably in the middle. One way or another, you will be remembered -- and rewarded.
You aren't likely to experience tremendous success when you first start out, but this will in no way dissuade you from pursuing -- and fulfilling -- your professional aspirations. What you want, you can surely have, but you must be ready to work long and hard to win it.
Also born on this date are: Ruth Gordon, actress; Grace Slick, musician and singer; Henry Winkler, actor, director and producer; Harry Hamlin, actor; Ezra Pound, poet; John Adams, U.S. president and patriot.
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.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're thinking about things a bit too much right now; trust your instincts -- and those gut feelings -- to see you through.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll be reminded of something that you did not do when you were first asked to, but today you'll have a chance to get it done.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Things may not be quite as they seem, and your own perceptions may not be as accurate as they have been in the past. Ask for clarification.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A task you have been doing regularly may be done by someone else. Instead of getting upset, think about why this might be.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There's no place for an abrasive attitude; the best thing you can do for yourself and others is to remain affable in all things.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll want to save something for later, but what you get done in the morning will prove most important to you in the end.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll be able to show off your knowledge of certain rare happenings. Others will want to make your acquaintance in large numbers.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Logic and rationality may fail you during the first part of the day, but you can compensate by trusting your instincts fully.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You will be working on something down to the wire. When everything is over, you'll be able to look back and see what could be called "unique."
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Developments may defy explanation at first, but later on you'll come to realize that most things do, indeed, have a reason.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- An economical approach is advised, especially in situations that require you to use those resources that are, right now, running low.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- All along the journey, you'll have places to stop that afford you a lovely view of where you've been and where you're going.
