Born today, you are a highly intelligent individual with a great deal of natural charm and charisma, and the ability to look deep within the souls of others to determine their true motives in all things. You are not guaranteed to be correct in your assessment of those around you, however; you must realize that your instinct and ability to assess the hearts of others can only truly be of use if you combine it with observation of behavior. If you do that, you're always sure to learn something valuable! You are a highly reactive individual; you make decisions based largely upon what others do and why they do it -- especially when those things are done to you. There is a risk that you may become habitually defensive because of this, but with discipline you can surely keep this from happening.
You seem to attract attention wherever you go, so it is not likely that you will ever be able to fly below the radar for long. You must get used to being not only the focus of people's attention, but also the subject of their conversation. You'll find that you are a hot topic on the rumor mill more often than you might like!

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A little stubbornness may actually do you a world of good -- especially when you are standing on the threshold of something hazardous.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not understand someone else with perfect clarity, but grasping at least the basics may be enough.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may find that the truth has been staring you in the face for quite some time. Why is it that you are only just now becoming aware of it?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's a good time to go back to something familiar and trusted. There are times when something "new and improved" is actually neither!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may find yourself in a position of some authority, but take care to avoid making decisions simply because you can. Reasons count!
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept. 22) -- You will want to pay attention to even the smallest of details, lest you miss something entirely that could matter a great deal.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may not have things in the right order, but even with a little chaos, you can get things done in a way that impresses others.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You mustn't overdo it. Respect your limits, and be sure that others respect them as well. You can keep exhaustion at bay.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You must practice what you preach -- especially when it comes to doing right by others. You don't want to break your own good rules!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Even a small amount of certain things can be too much. You must know when to say you've had enough of something you enjoy!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Denying yourself is only likely to lead to bad moods all around. Give yourself what you can -- and give to others, too!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Others are likely to look to you as an example, so you'll want to be sure that you are living up to your own high standards.
