Born today, you are sometimes quite unconventional, and your behavior can be hard to predict. This is due, in large part, to what others may sum up as your radical personality. All this really means is that you are not one to subscribe to the kinds of rules that keep others working together on an even keel. You can often be found pursuing your own goals in your own way, regardless of what others may be doing -- or think you should be doing. What is definitely a Libra trait, however, is your insistence that you be treated fairly and given the same chances in life that others enjoy. You believe very strongly in the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!
You must expect a certain level of emotional hardship in your life, for you feel things very deeply and cannot easily shake off disappointment. This means, of course, that you will be subject in large part to the ebb and flow of those emotional currents deep within -- in a very real sense, they make up your core.
Also born on this date are: Simon Cowell, entrepreneur and producer; Toni Braxton, singer; Vladimir Putin, Russian president; Yo-Yo Ma, cellist; Diego Costa, soccer player; Thom Yorke, singer-songwriter; John Mellencamp, singer-songwriter; June Allyson, actress; Bishop Desmond Tutu, humanitarian leader; Niels Bohr, scientist; Joy Behar, TV host; Jayne Torvill, Olympic figure skater.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may feel outraged by what happens far from home, in part because you can do little to prevent any of it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're feeling things on a deeper level than usual. A friend comes to you with a problem, but things take a strange turn.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your acquaintance with someone who is "front and center" today may inspire you to take a more prominent role in coming affairs.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your instincts will see you through. Don't be tempted to think about things once they are behind you, as this can trip you up.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The power you have over someone is significant, and you mustn't abuse it. Take a lighthearted approach.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're desperate to be taken seriously. Before nightfall, you'll get just what you deserve, and more.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The hints you've been giving aren't likely to yield the results you had hoped for, but you can save the day in the end.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be delayed somewhat when you realize that you have to go back over some of your work and review your style.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're likely to be the recipient of something that can prove quite valuable -- once you figure out whom it's from, and what it's for!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A well-meaning gesture is likely to backfire on you, putting you in a position that requires a great deal of careful negotiation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Some changes need to be made. What happens on the home front affects you in a way that you had not anticipated. Seek definite answers.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You don't have to do things the way others do them; you need to do them in the way that works for you -- and that gets results.
