Born today, you are not at all an adventurer, yet you are destined to forge a path in life that is very much your own. While you are not one to choose a leadership position, you are not the kind to get lost in the crowd, either. There is much more in your nature that seems rather paradoxical, but you chalk this up to being a complex individual who doesn't always pay attention to the way things are "supposed" to be done. You are not worried about consistency; you let your own nature dictate your future, and if others have trouble understanding you, then so be it. You don't live your life to satisfy others.
You are far more interested in quality than quantity. Because of this, you have a greater understanding of the power of money than many others, and you will no doubt learn how to make a little go a long way as a result. It is not so much that you are overly frugal, just smart!
Also born on this date are: Bella Thorne, actress; Bruno Mars, singer; Matt Damon, actor; Chevy Chase, actor and comedian; R.L. Stine, author; Sigourney Weaver, actress; Jesse Jackson, civil rights leader; Stephanie Zimbalist, actress; Emily Procter, actress; Paul Hogan, actor; Rona Barrett, columnist; Eddie Rickenbacker, World War I pilot.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Today's the day you've been waiting for. Whether it involved doing more or less, what you want is what you'll very likely get.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Assume nothing, and get the facts. When you encounter two conflicting reports, your own investigation can set things straight.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You've been trying very hard to get another individual to do for you what you should be doing for yourself. Stop playing this game.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Personal experience teaches you much, whether it is your own or someone else's. Indeed, what others go through can be most instructive.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be encountered by one who knows more than you do about certain things that will come in handy today. Share opinions and info.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've been working hard at something that isn't likely to yield the results you have been hoping for. Today's efforts can lead elsewhere.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're likely to receive both praise and criticism, but you know which one will seem more significant to you!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may not know what's what until you step back and look at everything from a more instinctive point of view. Don't try so hard!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're eager to see how others have fared in a situation not unlike your own. Focus on the little things that they do differently.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You will have to look closely at what happens throughout the day. Connect the dots, and you'll increase your understanding of events.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Those working with you mustn't be allowed to carry more of the burden than you do. You must make sure that everyone is treated fairly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Take care that someone else doesn't surge ahead of you because you've allowed yourself to slip slightly out of position.
