Born today, you are often able to combine the routine and the unusual, the acceptable and the controversial, the conventional and the exceptional, in ways that are unique and impressive. Your skill in this and other areas is the result of an unwillingness to settle; you always want to do more, reach further and achieve more than you have in the past -- or than has anyone else. Creative outlets are essential to you, and your mental and physical health depend upon your ability to challenge yourself freely and explore without hindrance all the things in life that interest you. You will not be restricted in any way!
There may be times when your pursuit of excellence leads you into dangerous situations -- but never blindly. You always know when you are taking a risk, and you will do all you can to minimize the hazards that you are facing, even when you understand that you cannot eliminate them completely.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Personal strength isn't necessarily about physical prowess; your emotional fortitude is likely to be much more important.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to employ a good deal of native cleverness even as you dig up answers that seem to be right out of the textbook.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're eager to accept another's offer of hospitality, but this may not be the time. A personal issue keeps you closer to home.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll be compelled to look into a certain issue much more intimately than you have in the past. What someone tells you strikes a chord.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're eager to renew your friendship with someone who has been out of the picture for a while, but you may not know how just yet.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be reunited with someone who has figured prominently in your past success. It could be that another big thing is on the horizon.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're working on a plan that has you excited about a coming endeavor. You will cross professional and personal boundaries.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It's not likely to be you who must repeat yourself, but that doesn't mean that reviewing what you have done isn't valuable.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll be impressed by the way someone comes back to you with equal effectiveness when you thought you had put him in his place.
