Born today, you are destined to become one of the more confident and capable individuals born under your sign -- or, perhaps, any sign at all -- but while you are young, it may not seem to others that you have been endowed with much that sets you apart. The root of this perception is two-fold: On one hand, much of your character can be quite difficult to discern, so your true potential may be hidden from view for quite some time. On the other hand, you may not be the kind to press your advantage, leaving others to believe that you're not capable of doing anything memorable -- which is, of course, simply not true!
You may ultimately be able to prove yourself on the public stage. You are compelled to involve yourself in endeavors that involve others, that require careful communications and that can ultimately benefit -- or harm -- a great many individuals. Though you may not want to admit it, politics may well be your niche!
Also born on this date are: "Weird Al" Yankovic, singer and satirist; Pele, soccer player; Ryan Reynolds, actor; Michael Crichton, writer; Johnny Carson, television host; Ang Lee, filmmaker.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Keep your head up and your eyes open; you don't want to miss out on anything because you allowed your attention to lapse.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have more to do than you had first planned on, but this shouldn't be a problem if you take the time early on to prioritize.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Some may think that you're behind the times because of the way you want to address certain issues. Your way is your way!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It shouldn't take much for you to raise the bar. Even the smallest details can make a significant difference to you and others.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're eager to hear another tell the story of a recent experience -- in part because it is likely to have been so much like your own.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Now is the time for you to sit back and watch what happens as a result of your recent efforts. Resist the temptation to push further.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can better deal with what comes if you've been sure to equip yourself with the tools you need, both mentally and physically.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Money matters are not as easy to wrap your head around as you may have thought. You'll want to see how others are coping.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll come up with the right answers eventually, but perhaps it is the process itself that is the most important thing to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can make something out of what appears to be nothing. What others are after may not be worth such a pursuit to you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll want to make sure that you are not making things more difficult by using an inappropriate tone as you try to convey certain messages.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll need some help, perhaps, as you are facing a task that requires you to approach problems in a way that is new for you.
