Born today, you have a very strong sense of your place in the world. You are constantly aware of your own trajectory in life, and of the forces that fate, the stars and destiny exert upon you. You are not the kind to resist such forces, but rather you choose, whenever possible, to submit to them in a positive, creative way, allowing them to influence you and propel you forward toward valued ends. Like most Libra natives, you have been blessed with a great deal of self-awareness. While others may find you mysterious or difficult to understand, you always seem to know what is making you tick. There is no point to getting caught up in personal mysteries as far as you are concerned; they merely distract you and slow you down.
The major drawback of living life attuned to what destiny has decreed is that you may sometimes choose to let things be, when you could, in fact, alter them for the better. This is particularly true when environmental influences threaten to derail you; you're not always likely to make changes that could minimize their effects.
Also born on this date are: Luke Perry, actor; Eleanor Roosevelt, U.S. first lady; Steve Young, football player; Daryl Hall, singer; Jane Krakowski, actress; Dottie West, singer; Jerome Robbins, choreographer; Elmore Leonard, author.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You don't expect those around you to be quite as competitive as you are, and you may be surprised when someone challenges you directly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are being asked to do something that only a few can do. In fact, only you may be able to do it in such an effective way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not want to share your views openly, as you fear they will not be popular with those who occupy positions of authority.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A challenge comes your way, and you'll be tempted to accept it without first assessing any potential hazards. Use caution!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's a good day to focus inward and tend to your own needs and the needs of family members. What goes on in the home is of prime importance.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your creative spark may fire at the most unusual times. You can parlay a single achievement into something of recurring value.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A choice you are offered may not seem like any choice at all, until you look into it and discover something no one yet suspects.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The possible and the impossible are very close together. You may be able to do something that no one else has ever done.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll be told a great deal by those in charge, but some of what you hear may not make sense, given what you think you already know.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may stumble upon an opportunity that very soon may have you laughing all the way to the bank. You can share what you learn with others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Fun turns serious today, and vice versa. Indeed, you are at your best when the lines between work and recreation become the fuzziest.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The time has come for you to reach out to a former friend or partner to see what he or she is up to. This relationship is salvageable!
