Born today, you are something of a visionary. You are always thinking up schemes, plans and projects to which you can dedicate yourself completely. You aren't likely to see all of them come to fruition, of course, because some are simply implausible or too ridiculous to see through to the bitter end -- but most will surely occupy you for a spell at least, and even those that don't bring you lasting success will bring you valuable lessons in all kinds of disciplines, so they will surely be worthwhile. There will come a time, of course, when everything that you have learned will come together to give you the one great accomplishment of which you will have spent your entire life in pursuit and preparation!
There are some who may actually label you a "genius," but you're not one to subscribe to such superlatives. You prefer to be known as someone who works hard to see things through, and who is able to make the impossible possible through dedication and the effective application of character and talent. You are both exceptional and highly realistic in your outlook.
Also born on this date are: "Weird Al" Yankovic, singer and satirist; Pele, soccer player; Michael Crichton, writer; Johnny Carson, television host; Ang Lee, filmmaker; Dwight Yoakam, singer and actor; Sam Raimi, filmmaker; Cat Deeley, television personality; Ryan Reynolds, actor.
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 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are ready to step into the fray and help a friend deal with a situation that has gotten out of hand. You have a calming influence.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Because others know how powerful you really are, they are more than willing to give you a wide berth. You can do almost anything!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can trust that one person who has been by your side throughout a long period of trouble, but don't expect that anyone else will help.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may feel as though you are entirely on your own, for the very good reason that it is likely true! What you must do is very clear.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- When the time comes, you'll want to express yourself openly and honestly -- especially when it comes to something others don't want to talk about.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may think that you know better than the experts, but after giving a difficult task a try all on your own, you'll change your tune!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You needn't tell a loved one everything you are thinking of doing -- unless you feel that omitting certain details is tantamount to lying.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You and a loved one can do much to improve the overall mood in and around the home. Are you willing to talk about truly anything?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You will want to follow closely someone who seems to know all the ins and outs of a certain new endeavor. You may soon become partners.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You will not be able to buck all of the trends, but one in particular needn't hold you back in any way -- and you know which one.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're going to have to come up with a lot of the answers entirely on your own, as trustworthy assistance may not be available.
