Born today, you cherish personal ties of all kinds, and you will sacrifice your own professional success and standing if it means rescuing a suffering friendship or deepening your relationship with a family member. To you, other people are the reason for living! You get on so well with others that you sometimes find it difficult to be alone -- and when you are alone, you are often busy communicating with friends, family, co-workers and all manner of other individuals in any manner available. You understand that you can never accomplish anything in life without the involvement of others, that life is an ongoing collaboration and that what you do and say to others has far-reaching ramifications that cannot be denied. You are clearly a "people person"!
You are able to achieve much in the professional arena, though it may take you some time to realize just what your niche might be and what your responsibilities to yourself and others will entail. Once you have all that sorted out, however, success can come to you quickly.
Also born on this date are: Tracy Nelson, actress; Anne Tyler, writer; Helen Reddy, singer; Minnie Pearl, comedian; Marion Ross, actress; Pablo Picasso, artist; Richard E. Byrd, explorer; Leo G. Carroll, actor; Georges Bizet, composer; Katy Perry, singer-songwriter.
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.
MONDAY, OCTOBER 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You mustn't try too hard to control things; let them progress organically, as they will, and react accordingly.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Always remember that you are not in charge of everything! This will serve you well as you interact with someone of higher status.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You have much to offer, and others will come away from any interaction with you with exactly what they want -- and then some.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Are you ready to do what you have been promising for so long? Today is the day, whether or not you feel absolutely ready.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It is a good idea to share ideas openly with others -- even those that are, in your view, still only experimental.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you see in the mirror tells you much about the way you see the world around you. Is an attitude adjustment required?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you conjure in your imagination can be just as valuable to you in the long run as anything rooted in hard-and-fast reality.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're promoting an idea that is not right for everyone. Be sure your approach takes the desires of others into account at all times.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What you are doing may not win approval from everyone, but one or two people will stand behind you, no matter what.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be dreaming of another time and place throughout much of the day. Indeed, much of it is absolutely worth missing!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll be able to get off the starting blocks very quickly as the day begins, but later you can expect a sudden, temporary slowdown.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may feel as though you are losing support, but in reality, your position is just as strong as it has ever been.
