Born today, you are able to envision things that have never been just as though they were before you in all of their very real three-dimensional glory. Once you imagine something, you're not likely to let go of that vision until you have turned it into something tangible, practical and valuable -- to you and to others. Of a sign populated by imaginative individuals, you are perhaps the most imaginative of all, capable of conjuring that which no one else dares. You are not always as realistic as you might be, of course, and there may be times in which your imaginings are not immediately possible -- but that isn't likely to stop you. Just because something can't be done today doesn't mean it can't be done tomorrow; nothing happens until it happens -- and the impossible is only impossible until you make it otherwise.
Not every idea is likely to be the best idea, and you recognize that now and then you are likely to bring something to fruition that simply doesn't work the way it is supposed to, or bring you the satisfaction you had hoped. Not to worry, for there is always something else brewing that can -- and will -- take its place and succeed in a new and exciting way. You will never quit and never compromise.
Also born on this date are: Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York; Penny Marshall, actress and director; Linda Lavin, actress; Emeril Lagasse, celebrity chef; Lee Iacocca, auto executive; Mario Puzo, author.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Honest talk can yield important results today, but not if you let it deteriorate into something more like name-calling. Mind your manners!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll want to go about your business today with great care, lest you slip backward and fall into a trap of your own making.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can't embrace every idea that comes your way today. Pick and choose -- and prioritize. Focus on those that can open doors for you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not know quite how to express yourself today, so you may choose to keep your thoughts to yourself for a time. This won't last long.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are aware of the dangers that lie ahead, but you know there is little you can do to avoid them. Ready yourself for a battle of wills.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Loved ones are supportive of you at this time, even though they may not agree with your motives and find your methods questionable.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll be spending more time showing someone else the ropes, and there is a risk that you will neglect a few of your own key issues.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are eager to see what lies outside the boundaries of your recent experiences -- and this doesn't even require that you travel very far.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You will benefit from another's point of view, and you'll be very surprised to find out who that "other" is. You can expect to reconnect.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Any distractions that set you back today are likely the result of your inability to focus. Don't blame others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are eager to know what others know, but you aren't all that willing to go through what you must to gain that knowledge.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Those around you are excited to work with you to reach a common goal. There may not be an official start to the process, but it will begin.
