Born today, you tend to live your life quite freely, without regard for the kinds of rules, regulations and restrictions that hold most people back within the boundaries of conventionality and propriety. You break those boundaries as often as you can -- if you even observe them to begin with! You are driven to learn as much as you can as quickly as you can, and to put that knowledge to good use; you don't like to do the same thing for long. On more than one occasion, you have likely been inspired by another to make a dramatic change in your life -- even, perhaps, pursuing an entirely new and different career path. Indeed, you are never likely to answer that age-old question, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" for the fact is that you don't know if you will ever be able to choose only one endeavor -- and you don't plan on growing up!
You love a good laugh, and you believe with all your heart that laughter can solve any problem. You are able to rally others around a common banner based on inspiration, fun and experimentation; those who choose to associate with you are likely quite eager for the kind of life that not many choose to lead.
Also born on this date are: "Weird Al" Yankovic, singer and satirist; Pele, soccer player; Michael Crichton, writer; Johnny Carson, TV talk show host; Ang Lee, filmmaker.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You know what is possible, but someone is trying to urge you toward that which you know is not. It's time for you to make boundaries clear.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A contest reveals no clear winners or losers today -- but that doesn't mean you won't want to assess the performance of your team.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Someone who has been positioned against you for some time is likely to come around today and pledge loyalty as things heat up.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be doubting yourself as the day begins. Later on, events will serve to bolster your confidence and provide you with answers.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may not know just what to say today, but say something you must before someone else steps in and usurps your current position. Don't vacillate.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A gentle conflict is likely to become more contentious as the day wears on. You may suspect that a former ally has an ulterior motive.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to speak or act more quickly today than you had expected. What happens after dark explains your behavior earlier in the day.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- If you feel compelled to complain, do so to one who can actually help you do something about the original offense. Choose carefully!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your emotions may be quite near the surface throughout much of the day. See if you can't stifle the urge to lash out needlessly.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The starting point and the finish line may be indistinguishable today. This is a puzzle solved only by doing what must be done.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Though usually quite good at solving riddles of certain import, today you may miss the most obvious clues and come up short.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may startle those who are expecting you to do the same thing as usual today; your creativity and flexibility are most valuable right now.
