Born today, you are not likely to miss out on many opportunities in life, whether personal or professional. Your habit of putting yourself front and center as often as possible is sure to bring you all you want -- and more. What is most important at all times, is that you remain true to yourself, follow your heart, keep your beliefs and ideals intact and never let the world corrupt you in any way. It is important for you to do what you feel you must do -- once you learn the ropes and know how to make your way. You are able to mix and mingle with all types -- even those who rub you the wrong way. This will surely help you in your professional pursuits.
Also born on this date are: Julia Roberts, actress; Edith Head, costume designer; Cleo Laine, actress; Jane Alexander, actress; Joaquin Phoenix, actor; Bill Gates, software magnate; Jonas Salk, physician; Dennis Franz, actor; Charlie Daniels, singer.
You are charming, knowledgeable, easy on the eyes and ears, and able to inject both spice and humor into any situation. Others enjoy having you around. Still, there are times when you will choose privacy over social interaction, and others must respect this in you, lest they lose your friendship and company altogether.
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 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're reminded of something that has been of only moderate significance lately. It is once more first on your list.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have more to choose from than usual, so you may want to invite a friend or loved one along to share his or her unique perspective.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're ready to look more deeply into a certain issue than you have at any time in the past. What you learn about yourself is invaluable.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're likely to be forgiven a certain recent offense, but it isn't likely to be entirely forgotten anytime soon.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone is following you closely, but you must take care not to tip your hand or allow him or her to get the better of you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Patience is likely to get you what you want, but not in the manner you had anticipated. Playing the waiting game is unavoidable.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be gravitating toward those who share with you something hidden that you aren't yet willing to reveal -- to yourself or others.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to work harder to get what you want from someone who is just being stubborn. A change in the weather has an unusual effect.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What you want and what you are offered are two very different things. You may have to go off script to secure the essentials.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can make things up as you go along and still reap the rewards you are after. Indeed, improvisation may yield more than preparation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Don't wait to get started; the sooner you put things in motion, the sooner you begin to enjoy the payoff.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're not one to assume others will get everything done on their own as expected. You'll want to get in there and do some of it yourself.
