Born today, you have a certain internal power that is sure to be noticeable to all who meet you -- and those who get to know you at all will come to realize very quickly that you are a force to be reckoned with! You don't even have to do much to make an impact; just walking into a room can do the trick -- especially if you use "that walk" that you have cultivated and "that voice" that you have trained so well to achieve a certain effect. There may be some who think you're just a big fake or that you're not what you seem to be, but this is untrue! You are quite genuine, and anything you do to amplify your inner force will result in nothing more than that very force, amplified! And that, summed up, is still very much you.
You can engage in conversation with almost anyone about almost anything because you are knowledgeable and curious about the world around you. You will always assert your independence in discussion, demonstrating how carefully you think about things and how artfully you talk about them.
Also born on this date are: Pam Dawber, actress; Melina Mercouri, actress; Jean-Claude Van Damme, actor and martial artist; George C. Scott, actor; Jesse Helms, U.S. senator; Chuck Berry, rocker; Peter Boyle, actor.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not know just how another is going to react to what you do or say, but you're confident that he or she can shift gears.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A look through old records tells you that things may not have been exactly as you remember them. Money matters come to the fore -- again.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're in need of a little something extra from a loved one, and he or she may be feeling exactly the same way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You mustn't be resistant to change. Today, signs point to improvement, but that improvement depends on certain key life alterations.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You have a way of telling it like it is, but that approach may not yield the desired results, and instead rub others the wrong way.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have to call in a few favors in order to see a project get off to a strong start. Don't be fooled; you can't do it alone!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Every once in a while something comes along that changes everything. Today, you're likely to encounter just such a thing.
