Born today, you have been endowed with a tremendously vivid and almost hyperactive imagination that may very well prove to be the dominant force in your life as you make your way both personally and professionally. You are sure to open many doors because you approach any situation from a fresh new angle, to forge a great many lasting relationships because you communicate in creative and effective ways, and to do great work time and again because you constantly think outside the box and apply your unique thought processes to all kinds of problems. You always seem to look at life through a lens that enables you to enjoy many different colors, tastes, textures and experiences where others might be at a loss.
Also born on this date are: Bella Thorne, actress; Bruno Mars, singer; Matt Damon, actor and filmmaker; Chevy Chase, actor and comedian; R.L. Stine, author; Sigourney Weaver, actress; Jeremy Davies, actor; Jesse Jackson, civil rights leader; Stephanie Zimbalist, actress; Emily Procter, actress; Paul Hogan, actor; Rona Barrett, columnist; Eddie Rickenbacker, World War I pilot.
You have a knack for telling stories and providing meaning to others in their daily lives. This is because you are always able to connect events with what is most important on a basic, human level and create inspiration as a result. Almost everyone you meet will have you to thank for some of their best thoughts and ideas at some point.
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.
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You mustn't feel compelled to revisit a time you do not remember fondly. Instead, know that you've learned something and move on.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You mustn't expect anyone else to respond the way you do to a certain complex situation. Such differences make things interesting!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You must assess a certain situation carefully -- and accurately -- before passing judgment and committing yourself to something lasting.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can give someone a piece of good advice -- and in the process, you may realize that it's advice you should be taking yourself!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You don't have to worry about coloring within the lines. You can express yourself more fully if you enjoy some improvisation.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can already apply lessons that you learned only yesterday. If only all things were as clear and simple! You're ready to move ahead.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You and a friend can have fun doing something that you had originally thought would not come naturally -- but it's right up your alley!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can demand more from someone than originally expected, but he or she may balk at the request unless you explain yourself thoroughly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can add some spice to your life by following someone into a situation you know very little about. Be ready for anything!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must remember your own needs even as you satisfy someone else's. By day's end, you'll understand more about yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may require more time to accomplish something routine simply because you've been asked to take on additional responsibilities.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must give others respect if you expect to get any yourself. A healthy rivalry depends on this expression of mutual esteem.
