Born today, you are always concerned with the big issues in life, and you are constantly thinking about life, death, meaning, right, wrong and everything in between! You are compelled to do things that really matter; you're not the kind to engage in busywork or do anything that seems important to no one but you. You want to be playing on a much larger stage than that! You were born with a broad smile, a keen mind and a sense that things are not always as they seem -- and you are right! You have also been endowed with a sense of destiny, a feeling that there is a place for you in the world -- and in history -- and you must do all you can to fulfill that destiny while remaining true to yourself.
Also born on this date are: Lillian Gish, actress; Dwight D. Eisenhower, U.S. military leader and president; Ralph Lauren, fashion designer; William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania; e.e. cummings, poet.
Despite doing amazing things that are likely to be long remembered, you always manage to keep your feet on the ground and think in the humblest of terms about yourself, your abilities and your accomplishments. You are a mere mortal, and prefer to be thought of that way.
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.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Events of the day are likely to remind you of a better time, yet you're confident that things are on an overall upswing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your own outlook may be holding you back, as you don't really see anything positive coming out of a current situation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Avoid being too greedy. The more you have, the more you'll want to share with others. There is enough good fortune to go around!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Any deals you make may have to be reviewed carefully before all is said and done. No one wants to get the short end.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Any time you have to yourself is best spent focusing on why you are doing what you are doing these days. Motives cannot be ignored.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Not everyone understands that what you are trying to do is largely for the benefit of others. You can make this clearer in certain ways.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll seem to have all the answers, but the truth is that you're not really up to speed on everything you should be.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can make a plan that promises much in the way of rewards both tangible and intangible. Your reputation may be on the line.
