Born today, you are likely to find yourself filling important positions throughout your lifetime, as you are just the sort of person other people will look to in times of trouble -- the kind that inspires confidence and gives off an air of expertise that will win support from virtually everyone. If you choose to lead a life in the public eye, you will learn to navigate the ups and downs of critical opinion quite well. You derive your confidence from self-awareness, not from the praise of others! If you decide instead to live more privately, or even alone, you can still achieve great contentment -- for you will know just what you are gaining and what you are giving up by choosing one lifestyle over another.
You have a unique way of looking at routine issues. Your methods of dealing with problems will almost surely be studied and imitated by others, and your legacy is likely to be quite long-lived. Indeed, you may be able to stake your claim to a significant place in the history books.
Also born on this date are: Lillian Gish, actress; Dwight D. Eisenhower, U.S. military leader and president; Mia Wasikowska, actress; Ralph Lauren, fashion designer; William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania; e.e. cummings, poet; Lois Lenski, author and illustrator; Isaac Mizrahi, fashion designer; Lori Petty, actress; Usher, singer.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 15
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Anyone who thinks that you're not fully prepared for what you've undertaken is underestimating you. You can prove a great deal.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The rules you have made for another to follow may actually serve you as well -- especially during this highly unpredictable day.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can show someone just how smart you are, but it's not book-learning that will be on display. It's a certain kind of street smarts.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your instincts are keen, and your flexibility may be at an all-time high. This allows you to consider more options than usual.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your productivity is under scrutiny, so be sure you are able to demonstrate what you are capable of in all departments.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not be able to commit just yet, but you can surely explore your options and be ready to make a decision when the time comes.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may find yourself in a position in which freedom of choice is not even relevant. Doing what you are told is likely your only recourse.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're likely to discover something new about yourself as you tend to another's needs. You are close to letting the cat out of the bag.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Do you have something to do that will consume excess energy? You must find just the right outlet before the day is out.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It's time for you to explore what happens when you break free from the expectations that have reined you in for so long.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The simplest course of action is the best. You don't want to overcomplicate things and find that it's impossible to finish anything.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Something you've had your eye on for some time is likely to be closer than it has ever been. You can almost reach out and touch it!
