Born today, you have such confidence that you are willing to charge into virtually any situation, certain that you will prevail, no matter what kinds of danger may await you. On one hand, this innate boldness gives you a distinct advantage in both personal and professional affairs; on the other, it is likely to bring you face to face with very real hazards that you may not always be prepared to overcome. You must learn to balance potential and risk in all endeavors, and the more personally you are committed to a thing, the more you must focus on both of these as inevitable factors that will affect you directly. Confidence is often an asset, but it can also be a liability at times.
You are quick to make decisions, and you're not one to be easily swayed by others. Like so many born under your sign, you always believe you are right and those who disagree with you are wrong. This attitude can get anyone into hot water, including you. You will, however, do your best to make amends in any way you can, as required.
Also born on this date are: Winona Ryder, actress; Finola Hughes, actress; Fanny Brice, comedian; Melba Moore, singer; Kate Jackson, actress; Richard Dreyfuss, actor; Bill Mauldin, cartoonist; Bob Ross, painter and television host; Randy Jackson, singer and television personality; Rufus Sewell, actor; Gabrielle Union, actress; Ben Foster, actor; Amanda Beard, Olympic swimmer.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are heading toward something that both attracts you and gives you pause. Once you think it through, you should be ready for anything.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll be cruising before you know it, but be sure to watch out for hidden hazards that will drive you off the road if you're not careful.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be somewhat bewildered by the vast array of choices available in a certain new situation. You're not used to such variety.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- News reaches you at last, allaying your fears and inspiring you to move forward with greater alacrity. You'll get a taste of success.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- With simple honesty, you can make someone close to you happier than he or she has been in quite some time -- and yourself, too, in fact.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can ensure that your actions don't go unnoticed, but you don't have to blow your own horn in the process. Others will do that for you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're eager to let someone in on a secret, but you mustn't reveal too much too soon. You must let him or her get used to a new idea.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You will want to defer to someone who knows more about what you are facing than you do. As experience grows, so will your confidence.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Practice makes perfect, but that doesn't mean you won't have more work to do. You must stay current, and that takes effort.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Following the rules doesn't always come naturally to you, but you'll need to do almost everything by the book to please an elder.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must take care that a certain message doesn't wind up in the wrong hands -- or everything you are working for could be at risk.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The situation you face may not be what you were expecting, but you'll be relieved when you realize what is required of you.
