Born today, you have a deep-seated fear of being ordinary. For that reason alone, you're likely to jump at any opportunity to prove yourself, to demonstrate that you have something within you that is special and to win the admiration of those around you. You are driven to achieve more and more with each passing day, and you always manage, somehow, to avoid spinning your wheels. What you do is often likely to be important -- to you at the very least, if not to others -- and to make a difference to the world around you, even if only in some intangible way. You don't go around blowing your own horn; you let your behavior and accomplishments speak for you.
Always keenly interested in fairness and equality -- a sign of any true Libra native, of course! -- you like to show others how best to behave by behaving in that way yourself. You believe the best way to lead is by example, and you do so each and every day in your own small ways.
Also born on this date are: Elisabeth Shue, actress; Ioan Gruffudd, actor; Carole Lombard, actress; George Westinghouse, scientist; Britt Ekland, actress; Jeremy Sisto, actor; Janet Gaynor, actress; Thor Heyerdahl, explorer.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- This is a good day to consider relinquishing some responsibility, but you must choose with great care which to give up.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can avoid a major conflict by talking about the issues that are most important to you. Keep talking, and you can avoid fighting!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Don't let yourself get tangled in an issue that is not of your making. It's a good day to stay neutral, no matter who is involved.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be able to turn a blind eye to what someone does by accident. You're likely to discover it was no accident after all!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's a good day to unburden yourself. The emotional current may become much more difficult to navigate come nightfall.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are not as ready as you think you are, but if you play your cards right, you can learn just what you need to learn by day's end.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A trip down memory lane allows you to review both successes and failures, and the failures actually give you a new and exciting idea.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you truly think is bound to be discovered by others, so there's no point in trying to disguise your views. Share them openly!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your confidence is on the rise, but you may not yet feel ready to face a major challenge that has been presented by a rival.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must try to be more creative, as the same old approach to a pressing problem isn't likely to result in a permanent solution.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Be patient with yourself, and don't expect the impossible to be possible simply because you've set your sights higher than usual.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll learn what someone else really thinks of you -- and the result will be a careful maneuver that brings you unexpected delight.
