Born today, you are cut from a very different cloth, and your view of the world is seen through a lens that is very much of your own making. You often feel as though you are a stranger in a strange land, one whose point of view, emotional makeup and intellectual power are not of this earth, yet you are able to assimilate yourself quite well and function at a very high level despite this seeming disconnect. The truth is, of course, that all of this stems from an unusually high degree of self-awareness. You know yourself better than others know you, and better, in most cases, than they know themselves. This, in some significant and profound ways, sets you apart.
All of this may seem to indicate that you are highly independent, but you often crave the society of others and will go out of your way to enjoy social time with all manner of individuals. It is in your chosen work, however, that you want to assert your autonomy again and again; you insist on following your own path.
Also born on this date are: Elisabeth Shue, actress; Ioan Gruffudd, actor; Carole Lombard, actress; George Westinghouse, engineer; Britt Ekland, actress; Jeremy Sisto, actor; David Brin, author; Janet Gaynor, actress; Thor Heyerdahl, explorer.
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.
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Something that was easy for you only yesterday may prove quite difficult for you today. Such reversals are to be expected at this time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don't wait until the last minute to get in touch with the one person whose counsel can help you the most. You'll need time to absorb it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You've received many comments about a current project, but no one really understands your intentions, it seems -- or do they?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have more in store for others than meets the eye, and when you step forward to offer assistance, many will benefit.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Something you do not take seriously is likely to become quite serious before the day is out. You may not see the change coming.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone is telling you secrets that do not really have much to do with your own affairs. Is it wiser to listen or steer clear?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The beginning of the day offers a bit of a surprise that has you thinking that perhaps something better is just around the corner.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll want to take a "stream of consciousness" approach to the day, and not think things through as completely as usual.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Others are willing and able to help you, but until you are willing and able to accept that help, it will be utterly useless to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are facing something that seems dangerous at first, until you realize that the real danger lies within you. What does this mean?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are more relaxed about certain things than you have been in the recent past. You enjoy a sudden surge of energy after dusk.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must be willing to help others help you, or that help will not serve you well at all. You mustn't stand in their way -- or your own!
