Born today, you are a straightforward, no-nonsense, sometimes daring individual who is not always at home following the rules. This means that you will always live just outside the realm of the normal, doing the things that you are compelled to do naturally, while fighting against those who would limit you to what is considered appropriate or even conservative. You can be all these things, of course -- but not without effort. If you try, you can surely satisfy the expectations of even the most hardline conservative individuals, but why bother? Doing that will not make you happy, and your efforts will surely be transparent to those who know you best.
You are colorful and experimental in your personal affairs -- and adventurous, too! You don't want to be restricted by logic or forethought, yet you can be quite logical in your thinking, prepared for what lies around the next corner when you choose to be. Perhaps that's the secret to your success: the freedom of choice!
Also born on this date are: Gwen Stefani, singer; Neve Campbell, actress; Stevie Ray Vaughan, musician; Lena Headey, actress; Clive Owen, actor; Al Sharpton, civil rights leader; Lindsey Buckingham, musician and singer; Gore Vidal, author; Dave Winfield, baseball player.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be late, but you can catch up. The clock keeps ticking, but you know how to make every second work in your favor.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may receive something -- in the mail or via the Internet -- that has you wondering if things aren't taking a rather strange turn.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're not likely to know what someone is up to until he or she fills you in explicitly. Then, and only then, you can react!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're finally ready to do something for which you have been preparing for quite some time. Someone else knows how to inspire you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Now is the time to let a friend know just what is going on with you -- and how it affects your relationship. Things are surely changing.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll believe more and more in something that, only yesterday, was just a fantasy. Today's events will resonate deep within.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll be staring straight into the eyes of a certain danger that frightens and energizes you. You're ready to take it on!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can enjoy a good day, provided you don't let anyone or anything pull you away from your center. You must batten down the hatches.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Someone is feeling confident that you are in over your head, but that's just a ruse on your part. You're ready to save the day!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you are looking at may not mean anything to you at first -- but a second or third look does the trick.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not believe all that you are being told; this is the result of certain past episodes that have eroded your trust.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You mustn't make the mistake of thinking that what you have forgotten is out of the picture entirely. Some things can come back!
