Born today, you are always on the lookout for that extraordinary opportunity -- and at the same time, you are never in a hurry. This is a formidable combination, for it means that you will always take the time you need to make the most of whatever chance you may be given in life, and to do your best no matter how slow and painstaking the work may be. Indeed, you are better at that which smolders than bursts into flames -- and this is true in love as well. You aren't the kind to enjoy countless passionate affairs; rather, you are likely to build a lasting and loving relationship slowly, from the ground up -- and enjoy true, lifelong satisfaction.
There are surely going to be those who misunderstand you and what you are trying to do at any given time, and you may find yourself engaged in rather serious conflicts with forces working against you -- but such battles are won, you understand fully, by letting time work its magic, for time is almost always on your side.
Also born on this date are: Mahatma Gandhi, Indian leader; Sting, singer; Kelly Ripa, actress and TV host; Avery Brooks, actor; Richard III, King of England; Groucho Marx, actor and comic; Bud Abbott, actor and comic; Annie Leibovitz, photographer; Don McLean, singer and songwriter; Donna Karan, designer; Lorraine Bracco, actress; Chris LeDoux, singer.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You and a loved one are probably trying to achieve the very same thing, but you're going about it in very different ways. Conflict arises.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What you're really after at this time is hands-on involvement, and you can have it if you spend time with the right people.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Today proves important as you identify just the precise path you are to take to reach a destination of which you have long dreamed.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone comes to you with a problem that only you can solve -- and yet the solution may not come to you easily.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your potential is on the rise, and those around you sense that something big is in the offing -- even if you don't.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've been observing those around you long enough. Today, it's time to take part -- and even assume a leading role in a major endeavor.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're in the mood for something you may not be able to get your hands on until you conduct a thorough and exhaustive search.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Once you get past your most critical judge, you should be home free. That first step, however, will take some careful planning.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be misunderstanding or misinterpreting someone else's behavior today. You may, in fact, be the cause of it all.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A solid plan can be made today, but you may not be able to put it into motion right away. A certain key obstacle must be overcome first.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Do you have what it takes to do what is necessary today? You understand, of course, that it may involve bending or breaking the rules, yes?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may not be able to help another in the way that he or she had been hoping -- but you can contribute something valuable, surely.
