Born today, you are nothing if not a groundbreaker; you will go very far trying to do new things in new ways, pushing the present into the future with creativity, vision and tenacity. This doesn't mean, of course, that you turn a blind eye to what has gone before; on the contrary, you are a student of history -- your own and the world's -- and you know how important heritage is to who you are and what you do. You're never one to leave the past behind even as you blaze new trails and lead others toward the accomplishment of that which has never been imagined. Your tastes are eclectic, and your style even more so -- especially when young. Because you are such an original, there are no "rules" about how you do a thing; you do it the way you want to -- period! You're likely to be widely recognized for being a hard worker, but you play just as hard as you work!
You may not embrace principles and ideals that are popular or widespread, and your political beliefs may actually strain credulity -- but you stand by them, no matter what, because you are always true to yourself. Popularity is not an issue for you; if you are popular, so be it -- if not, that's perfectly all right with you, too.
Also born on this date are: Bella Thorne, actress; Bruno Mars, singer; Matt Damon, actor; Chevy Chase, actor and comic; R.L. Stine, author; Sigourney Weaver, actress; Jesse Jackson, civil rights leader; Stephanie Zimbalist, actress; Emily Procter, actress; Paul Hogan, actor; Rona Barrett, columnist; Eddie Rickenbacker, World War I flying ace.
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 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You mustn't let anyone come between you and a goal that is nearer to you now than ever before. You won't be derailed this time!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be making rules that others simply cannot follow. It's not that they don't want to, it's that they are impossible rules. Think again.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may put yourself in a difficult position by insisting on something that is either not valid or simply untrue. This is a test of sorts.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can get more done than most others, if only because your motives are simpler and more straightforward. Proceed step by step today.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You won't be any nearer an important personal goal simply by saying you are; you must make real, practical progress in measurable ways.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may become much more emotionally involved in certain affairs today than you had expected. You'll want to heed warnings that come your way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- When someone asks you to explain yourself today, you'll realize that you have more than one valid reason for doing what you've been doing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Take time out of your busy schedule to address an issue that others would have thought is of no interest to you. How wrong they are!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can be firm and certain where others are equivocal today -- but only now and then. Not every issue is going to be comfortable to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Take care that you don't make the same mistakes someone else has made simply because you're following in his or her footsteps. Be aware!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll want to engage your critical faculties throughout the day; if you miss anything significant, you may have time to go back to it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You aren't ready to share your motives or methods just yet; you must iron out a few wrinkles before things are just the way you want them.
