Born today, you don't always follow the rules -- or at least that's how it seems to others! The truth is, you live on the edge, walking a fine line between conventionality and outrageousness, doing things in your own original and inimitable fashion, often simply to get a reaction from those around you. Others may see you as flighty and mercurial, living with your head in the clouds, and your behavior often supports this common notion. Is it true, however? That's the question! You are not all you seem to be -- and indeed, those who think they have figured you out are likely to be surprised more often than not.
There is, beneath the surface, a wellspring of honest, sincere emotion running through the core of your being -- but this is not something you often display to just anyone. Indeed, you try to keep the "real you" under wraps unless you are in the company of those who know you best -- those you trust with your very life and livelihood!
Also born on this date are: Sacha Baron Cohen, actor and comedian; Nancy Kerrigan, Olympic figure skater; Kelly Preston, actress; Jerry Rice, football player; Marie Osmond, singer and entertainer; Paul Simon, singer-songwriter; Lenny Bruce, comedian; Margaret Thatcher, British prime minister; Yves Montand, actor; Cornel Wilde, actor; L.L. Bean, outdoorsman and entrepreneur.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are tempted to walk away from a situation that isn't giving you what you want -- but someone close to you may help you decide otherwise.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have a hard time scheduling a meeting with someone with whom you sense you can make some magic, either personally or professionally.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're making progress, surely, but not at the pace you had hoped. Don't make the mistake of thinking that speed is always a good thing!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Address issues head on and avoid doing anything that someone else might interpret as underhanded.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You don't want to turn your back on an important opportunity simply because it doesn't speak to your sense of pride. Explore further.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll want to be present when things start to heat up, so be sure to keep your ear to the ground and stay mobile, always mobile.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to go digging on your own to find out if what you've heard is actually true. Not everyone is on the up-and-up.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Those closest to you have noticed something different, but you are certain that nothing has changed. It's time to take another look.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may receive a surprise at the hands of someone who thinks he or she knows you best -- but not everything is quite as it should be.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone is interested in joining forces with you, but you're not in the mood to collaborate -- even though you are quite good at it!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you see and hear isn't likely to be as useful to you on the surface as you had hoped. You can dig deeper, however!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's a good day to relive a past glory, but take care that you don't get lost in your memories and neglect a present duty.
