Born today, you are dedicated to that which involves you directly in the affairs of the world. You are driven to tackle tasks and issues that are difficult and of great import, and you thrive on that which is complex and exciting. You seem to have an endless supply of energy and enthusiasm. Others may even go so far as to call you a Pollyanna, but the fact is that, despite your positive attitude, you are also quite realistic. You don't gloss over the negative, but instead choose to face it directly to see if you can turn it into something positive -- as indeed you are capable of doing! You must always do what comes naturally to you; remain true to yourself, and you can have it all.
You're likely to remain young for your entire life -- young in mind and spirit, that is, with a youthful heart that embraces all that is bright and life-affirming in the world. This is not always appreciated or understood by everyone, but those who matter look to you when things get tough, for they know you will be able to show them the 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.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You must be willing to pick up the pace without sacrificing any of the detailed work that you're so good at.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You won't be facing anything you cannot handle -- unless, of course, you've been hiding something from yourself recently.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have a run-in of sorts with someone who simply doesn't understand what it is you are up to. Explanations prove difficult.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will be able to spot certain things that are invisible to most others. This may bring you closer to a new neighbor.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You've been playing a game that has very few rules, but now you're going to have to insist that you and others be more strict.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A strategy that you've relied upon for a long time is not working the way it used to. You'll see an opportunity to make a key change.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may struggle with a few decisions that only yesterday would have seemed quite simple. You're undergoing a kind of transformation.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're facing a situation that is much more serious than you may realize, but a friend knows just what is going on.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It may be time for you to say out loud something you have only considered in the deepest recesses of your mind. Open up a bit.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be more keenly aware than usual of what is going on around you -- or is it that you're actively paying more attention?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You know just what you need, and you know where to get it. In the meantime, you must address a certain stubborn issue.
