Born today, you can always be counted on to step up and get involved when the going gets tough, when others are threatened, or when you spy injustice anywhere. You will not brook intolerance or insensitivity; you insist that others do what they can to take care of their fellow human beings -- and if they will not, you have little to do with them either personally or professionally. You will not sacrifice your principles for the sake of commodity or gain; you stick to your guns and remain true to yourself through thick and thin -- and in this way you inspire others to do the same. You may find that you are an example to many at some point in your life, and this is something you will use to everyone's advantage again and again.
You have prodigious talents, and you're not one to waste them. You will work hard to achieve goals that are set higher than most would dare to dream -- and you know how to turn your dreams into reality. You don't believe in luck; you believe in hard work, tenacity and doing things for the benefit of others even as you benefit yourself.
Also born on this date are: Hugh Jackman, actor; Kirk Cameron, actor; Luciano Pavarotti, operatic tenor; Bode Miller, Olympic skier; Aleister Crowley, occult leader; Susan Anton, actress; Ralph Vaughan Williams, composer.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The job you're tending to right now may not content you, but you can certainly perform better at it than anyone else you know.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're not one to say what mustn't be said, but today you may be tempted to do just that because a third party has pushed you to the limit.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll enjoy watching someone else be put to the test today, after you went through something similar recently. Be supportive!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are waiting for the right time to tell a loved one something you've been keeping to yourself for a while -- and that time is now.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Try as you might, you're not likely to accomplish all your goals today, simply because you cannot exceed your own human limits.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone else is likely to provide you with what you need today. Though you haven't asked for it outright, signals have been clear enough.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are mistaken if you think that being alone throughout the day will be productive; you need interaction to get the juices flowing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You must be willing to talk openly about one or two potentially sensitive topics today in order to avoid a major holdup down the road.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You know just how far you've come, and also how far you still have to go -- so don't let anyone slow you down today! Keep moving forward.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An obstacle is presented to you early in the day, but right now that's the best time for you to face any such challenge.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You mustn't break any rules today, nor must you make any that put someone else at a disadvantage. Only fair play passes muster today.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're entering a new phase today, and you're likely to see many things in a whole new light -- including yourself and a friend.
