Born today, you are a rather surprising individual, in that every time someone sizes you up, you are likely to do something that blows all of his or her assumptions about you out of the water. Indeed, you sometimes seem to be many different individuals, both on the surface and beneath it; you do have the qualities of the chameleon, who can change to suit the environment or circumstances. You change at will, sometimes seemingly for no reason whatsoever -- yet the truth is, there is always a method to your particular madness. You don't do anything without completely thinking it through and calculating your chances of success; if the odds are not in your favor, you're not likely to take the risk!
You have many talents, but one in particular is likely to win you the admiration of those around you -- and open many doors for you in life. In fact, it is at work that you surprise most people most of the time; you don't like to stick to one type of endeavor, and you will push the envelope and strive to be as versatile as possible.
Also born on this date are: Hugh Jackman, actor; Kirk Cameron, actor; Luciano Pavarotti, operatic tenor; Bode Miller, Olympic skier; Aleister Crowley, occult leader; Susan Anton, actress; Ralph Vaughan Williams, composer.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Focus on the goals you have set for yourself, and take care not to get distracted by something that glitters and gleams.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There's no point in trying to fix blame; focus instead on getting yourself -- and others, perhaps -- out of a difficult situation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You know how to hold your own when in the presence of those you admire, but don't get too comfortable too soon.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Understanding your current situation is more important than any short-term solution you can devise. Everything takes more time than usual.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You seem to know more than usual, and others are likely to gather around you, eager for the additional information.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to explain yourself on more than one occasion simply because others aren't willing to believe what they see or hear.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Make no presumptions or assumptions, and let others play their proper roles in the affairs that involve teamwork and collaboration.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You must do what you can to remain grounded. If you let your aspirations get the better of you, you may lose touch with reality.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's a good day to play it safe. You will want to reach out to someone who seems troubled and unable to make his or her way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Any argument is best avoided; you'll want to remain aloof and independent. You receive news that changes things somewhat.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you're after doesn't mesh with the desires of those closest to you, and the ensuing conflict teaches you something about yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can display a talent that surprises those who are used to nothing but the "same old thing" from you. This is the start of something big.
