Born today, you are not the kind to take many trips down memory lane. You prefer to live in the present, and if you do ever cast your eye in a different direction, it is almost always into the future, to see where you are going or what is coming your way. But for the most part, you don't let the future take up much of your time, either. You much prefer dedicating your thoughts and actions to currently prevailing issues. You avoid guessing about what might happen, choosing instead to focus on that which is certain, and for which there is empirical proof. Faith is something you leave to others.
Because you prefer to know things firsthand and to learn by experience, you are likely to travel much of the world in your lifetime, exposing yourself to different places, peoples and cultures, and learning as much about them as you can. Indeed, you may never actually have a permanent home base.
Also born on this date are: Lauren Tewes, actress; Jon Heder, actor; Mahalia Jackson, singer; Jaclyn Smith, actress; Cary Elwes, actor; Pat Sajak, TV game show host; Bob Hoskins, actor; Jackie Coogan, actor; Anthony Rapp, actor.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
MONDAY, OCTOBER 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Even the slightest effort will be memorable in some way. The ripple effect will magnify the results in a way that really matters.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You don't want to knock yourself off balance with a knee-jerk reaction or any intentional behavior that is ill-conceived. Use care!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The moment you've opened your mouth and the words have come out, you have reached the point at which backing out is not an option.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Listen to what your body is telling you. There are things that you need and things that you want -- you can have some of both.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's a good day to spend money on something you have long considered. Binge spending, however, must be avoided.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've been waiting on the sidelines long enough. Today, you're likely to encounter a situation that invites your direct participation.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are not able to move forward until someone else gets out of your way -- or decides to help you in a way that others cannot.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You don't have to like a person in order to work well with him or her and produce something that can have a lasting, positive impact.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may want to rethink your overall approach. Something you are doing is rubbing others the wrong way, perhaps.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- That which is strangest is also likely to be the most believable to you. You can make a case for almost anything.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can perform well at the drop of a hat. What you have to offer exceeds expectations and can be inspiring to those around you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The time has come for you to set aside your old ways and adopt a course of action that can begin paying off right away.
