Born today, you are nothing if not original; it may be that you are seen as quite challenging to authority and to the status quo because you are so unwilling to fall into line or do anything that smacks of conventionality. There are certainly those who choose not to deal with you, personally or professionally, and likewise there will be those who choose to challenge you every step of the way -- but you are able to rise above any such experience and keep doing what your heart, your imagination and your talents demand of you. Indeed, you are compelled to excel; you cannot simply go about your business in an average way, for that would cause crushing discontent. Only when you are chasing opportunities and taking the bull by the horns and showing it who's boss are you truly happy. Your life may not always be easy, but you will always be proud of what you try to do.
Just as you are never one to take a back seat in your professional life, you are an active and even aggressive lover -- one for whom "tradition" is not a controlling factor. You will push the limits of what is acceptable to others as you seek romantic satisfaction -- whether in a long-term relationship, or a brief but memorable fling.
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.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It's time that you brought your best ideas to the table -- just as others are doing. Avoid competition and promote cooperation in all things.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may wind up doing a great deal on your own today -- again -- when others you've been counting on are not able to carry their weight.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can prove that your own unique point of view is valuable to those who interact with you directly on a day by day basis.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may realize, quite suddenly, that what you've been working for may never be yours. It's the perfect time to make dramatic changes.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What you see is very much what you get today -- provided you stay close to home. Venture outside your comfort zone, and all bets are off.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone is telling you that you're ready, but you feel that your preparation has been incomplete. Try to determine what's really bothering you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must be mindful of the clock throughout the day. Don't let anyone tell you that you have "all the time in the world." There's a deadline!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can do good work, but it may not be noticed by the powers-that-be until very late in the day -- and is that too late to do you any good?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Recognition is what you seek, but you may not be soliciting it in the right way. Focus on the jobs you are doing, not your audience.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are not likely to be the center of attention today, and that suits you just fine. Behind the scenes you can get a lot done very quickly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Others will be urging you on, but you may have a reason to pull up short and change course even when the finish line is within view.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- If you're seeking guarantees today of any kind, you're likely to be disappointed. Still, you can enjoy much success.
