Born today, you mustn't let any success you enjoy when you are young give you false confidence that the same efforts when you are older will yield the same results. That is simply not the way it's going to be! Indeed, what you do when you are in your youth may be diametrically opposed to anything you do when you are older, and successes later in life may bear no resemblance whatsoever to those you enjoy in your early years. What will be consistent, however, is your ability to learn from your experiences, and apply that knowledge to subsequent endeavors; though you may do different things at various times in your life, the lessons you have learned will carry you through -- so you will never feel like you are "starting over." Hard working and dedicated, you enjoy challenges that require you to develop new skills.
You are never one to let stereotypes shape your thinking about people, places or events. You judge each person you encounter based on his or her merits, and you have faith in the basic goodness of mankind -- despite any evidence to the contrary! You enjoy working with others, and the social scene is often a source of tremendous inspiration to you.
Also born on this date are: Annette Funicello, actress; Sarah Bernhardt, actress; Catherine Deneuve, actress; Jeff Goldblum, actor; Tony Roberts, actor; Timothy Leary, professor; Brian Boitano, Olympic figure skater; Karl Jansky, physicist.
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 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don't go bragging about something you cannot prove, lest you have others show you up simply by accomplishing something they can demonstrate.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have trouble navigating your thoughts for a time today, especially as you plan for something that is not entirely concrete.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You must be willing to submit to someone else's control today, or you'll surely create more friction and conflict than you can afford.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You aren't yet over something that got you quite angry a while ago; today is a good day to examine why you reacted the way you did.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Take care that you don't organize things in a way that cannot be figured out by others; it's important that you let them participate!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can learn much about your inner workings today simply by paying attention to the way you react to the unexpected.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to wait to do something you've been assigned, and you must be sure to let those in charge know the cause of this delay.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Someone you know will give you a very good reason for either continuing along your current course or changing direction right now. Listen!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A technological failure may prevent you from doing what you are expected to do until you figure out a way to "cheat the system."
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You say you're doing one thing, but someone close to you knows that you're really intending something else. Can you reconcile this?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You will recognize what must be done -- and what you can leave undone -- in order to get through the day in the best possible manner.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Take care that you aren't so quick to size someone up that you miss something fundamental. You don't want that to happen to you!
