Born today, you are likely to inhabit a special place in the hearts of those who come to know you, and be one of those people whom others cannot imagine not having in their lives. You bring a great deal of life to the party, not simply through your effervescent personality and undying good humor, but also through your genuine care of others and your willingness to give virtually anything a try. Indeed, there are times when you will surprise yourself as well as those around you by jumping into something with abandon that others would have thought is not at all for you. But such is life! You enjoy throwing caution to the wind now and then.
You see things, at times, from a unique point of view that allows you to extract from even the most mundane events or situations a special sort of meaning that applies to you directly, allowing you to learn more than those around you. Fortunately, you are always willing to share those lessons with others.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Take care that you don't jump to any false conclusions. Take the time to assess situations carefully before making key decisions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is no time for guesswork. Look at the facts, get more information and listen to what others have to say about a certain issue.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Others may be looking to you to solve a mystery that has been haunting them for quite some time. There's really no mystery at all!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You know exactly what is going on, and why -- but that doesn't mean you know the best course of action. Be willing to discuss and negotiate.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone else may have more experience than you of a kind that is directly applicable to a certain situation. You may want to be second in line.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Today, how you spend your money says more about you than usual -- though anyone who is overly critical simply doesn't know you all that well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- An idea spawned today hasn't really "cooked" enough yet, but you recognize its potential, surely. Give it a little more time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll derive more than mere pleasure from revisiting something from your past. Memory lane leads you to the heart of an issue.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can put things in a way that seems mysterious to some, but others who know you better will know just what you're talking about.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your attitude may require a little adjustment as the day begins. You're not really in the mood to deal with what comes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're in no position to throw in the towel; you're going to have to stay in the ring and fight this one out, whether you want to or not.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A situation arises that demands more from you than routine care and attention. Family members are depending on you and your diligence.
