Born today, you see things through a lens that is almost entirely of your own making. For that reason -- among others -- you are destined to remain unique throughout your lifetime, a pioneer of sorts who treads a path that few, if any, have walked before. What interests you most in life is anything that gets you fired up, whether or not others also respond to it. Like so many Libra natives, you are keenly aware of your own spirit -- and the spirits of those around you -- and you always want to feed that spirit in order to remain healthy, balanced and positive in thought and outlook. It doesn't matter if what you do is common or uncommon; what matters is that you do it your way, on your own terms, for your own reasons.
You are able to balance practicality with ideology so that you never slip too far in any one direction, but maintain equilibrium between these very strong currents within your nature. Indeed, thoughts of the "real" and the "ideal" are never far from your mind, continually motivating you to strive, achieve and excel.
Also born on this date are: John Lithgow, actor; Peter Max, artist; Ty Pennington, television personality; Jon Favreau, actor and filmmaker; Trey Parker, animator and playwright; Gillian Jacobs, actress; Jack Anderson, columnist; Robert Reed, actor; Evander Holyfield, boxer.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have been waiting a bit too long to get something off the ground at home. Today, the opportunity to get it started is clear.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're no daredevil, but you may be required to throw caution to the wind and do something you would otherwise not do.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can stay the course despite a setback. What is most important is that your intentions are intact and your spirits high.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The situation you find yourself in is likely to require more in the way of daring and chutzpah than you are used to applying.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don't let your fear of the unknown keep you from exploring a new option. The person who brought it to you wouldn't put you in danger!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You know just what must be done, but figuring out how and when to do it may take more than idle thought. Consider all the details!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can take an old idea and turn it into something new -- and far more valuable than it ever was before.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You want to play with winners, not losers, and you have the chance to pick a team that will give you only the best every time.
