Born today, you are not a dramatic or overbearing individual. Indeed, you may actually be known for your quiet, unassuming manner and your ability to blend into the background whenever you so choose. That you are able to attract attention when you want is never a subject of debate, for you can capture the attention of a large audience when it is in your best interest to do so. Most often, though, you accomplish much by saying little. Those who know you best are fully aware of your ability to achieve much without escaping the notice of those around you. You have numerous talents, and there is no question that you will enjoy a long and lucrative career -- as long as you do not try to do anything that goes against your true, natural self. Indeed, while the "real you" is capable of much, any attempt to pretend is only likely to yield disappointment in the end.
You are never in a hurry; you know how to make a plan and stick to it, even though it may require you to display a kind of superhuman patience that would simply be incapable for others to try. Rarely interested in "instant gratification," you know that something you work for long and hard is much more satisfying than that which you can have at little cost.
Also born on this date are: Snoop Dogg, rapper; Viggo Mortensen, actor; Danny Boyle, filmmaker; Tom Petty, rocker; Jerry Orbach, actor; Mickey Mantle, baseball player; Art Buchwald, humorist; Bela Lugosi, actor; Christopher Wren, architect.
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 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are looking for more useful ways to spend your time, but what you've been assigned can prove quite important very soon.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is a good time for you to distance yourself from someone who has become far too aggressive for his own good -- or yours.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Others will know just what you are really trying to do when you behave in a way that goes against the grain. This doesn't mean you'll succeed!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Promote yourself and your ideas in the most direct way possible today and you're likely to have more than one door opened to you tomorrow.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may find yourself wondering why you didn't take full advantage of someone's patronage years ago. The question is: Is it too late?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A situation arises today that demands more of your time and attention than you were planning to give. This adjustment can be made easily.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll have some trouble today fitting everything into its dedicated spot; a little creativity can go a long way toward solving the problem.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Others are likely to lean your way today as you argue a point that hasn't been embraced in some time. Your popularity increases, too.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- More than expected must be done in less time than you had planned -- and this will be a logistical puzzle that lasts some time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must prepare yourself for something that is fast approaching, though you cannot fully see in complete detail as it nears.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You will be expected to play an entirely new role soon, and you can spend much of the day preparing to address many facets of it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are not doing things how others have expected you to do them, but that's not so much a problem as your unwillingness to change.
