Born today, you are rather easy to size up and understand, and this certainly doesn't bother you! Indeed, while no one can choose his or her personality or makeup, or arrange the stars in this way or that to favor a certain type, the truth is that you are very much what you want to be. There is never any reason for you to try to be anyone but who you are! To say that you are satisfied with the cards that you have been dealt in life is an understatement; not only are you satisfied, but you know exactly how to play those cards to ensure your ongoing contentment and success. Indeed, you must always play the hand you're dealt, and not attempt to cheat in any way!
You have a kind of inner strength that is sure to win you the admiration of many throughout your lifetime. Even those who do not agree with you or share your beliefs are likely to admire the confidence with which you do almost everything. You may be wrong sometimes, but even your wrong ideas often seem right!
Also born on this date are: Alicia Silverstone, actress; Susan Sarandon, actress; Charlton Heston, actor; Rutherford B. Hayes, U.S. president; Liev Schreiber, actor; Christoph Waltz, actor; Buster Keaton, actor and comedian; Abraham Benrubi, actor; Jackie Collins, actor; Tony La Russa, baseball manager; Anne Rice, author.
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 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll have good reason to give yourself a pat on the back when all is said and done. Your ability to stand your ground serves you well.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- That which has eluded you for some time is likely to fall into your lap before the day is out. You must be sure to recognize it!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- One shared experience will not mean the same to you as it does to the friend who shares it with you. This is worthy of conversation!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You certainly don't need to save your preliminary work. The fact is, the answers are more important than the process required to get them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your focus may not be as clear as it has been, but a friend is willing to come to your aid if you find yourself in any danger at all.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are close to achieving something you've been dreaming of for some time, but the obstacles are considerable. Don't be hasty!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to consent to doing something you don't want to do, but in return you're likely to receive something you've long been after.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You don't really know what's going on around you, but a little guesswork can hold you in good stead when things get tricky.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're happy for someone who will soon be enjoying what you most want. You may be inspired to make certain self-improvements, too.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You should be able to combine business and pleasure, provided you know which one comes first. All is not equal.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll receive a great deal of information, but not all of it will have you standing on more solid ground.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Unexpected developments abound, and you'll have to work hard to keep up. Someone you know well is gaining ground on you.
