Born today, you are never one to follow the rules if there is the slightest chance that they will hold you back. You are nothing if not independent, and you will buck the system, enduring whatever hardships you must, in order to assert your autonomy. You are drawn to activities that are sometimes quite controversial, and you have learned that to shock and surprise is perhaps the greatest tool in your arsenal when it comes to furthering your agenda. You do not fit into any preconceived mold, and you will never let anyone round your edges and soften your impact on the world around you.
Fortunately, you are also quite accepting of other people and their unique peccadillos. Then again, why wouldn't you be? To insist on your freedom without granting it to others would be hypocrisy of the highest order -- and you are nothing if not honest and straightforward with yourself and with others.
Also born on this date are: Jerry Lee Lewis, singer; Miguel de Cervantes, author; Gene Autry, singer; Madeline Kahn, actress; Mackenzie Crook, actor; Ian McShane, actor; Bum Phillips, football coach; Larry Linville, actor; Greer Garson, actress; Horatio Nelson, British naval hero; Bryant Gumbel, TV journalist; Lech Walesa, Polish leader.
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You know what's really going on, even though no one is really willing to talk about it openly. That is about to change, however.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take a look back at the way something used to be done and you'll realize just how far you've come -- and in little time, too. Don't stop now!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Tomorrow is all but guaranteed, and how you see yourself changing between now and then may surprise a loved one who is on your side.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You should make smooth and quick progress today, provided you know just what it is you're trying to accomplish. Guesswork slows you down!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone may be trying to get something for nothing today, and you're the only one standing in his or her way. You mustn't give in!
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept. 22) -- You are approaching a very practical problem in a manner that is perhaps too ideological. Focus on what you can see, feel and prove.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may find yourself in line for a promotion of sorts, but you can bet that winning it will only come after a rather heated competition.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The pace may be slower than expected, but you can pick things up during afternoon hours. Someone comes to you with an unusual request.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're creeping out of your comfort zone at this time. You can learn much from watching another.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll want to pace yourself today and avoid doing too much at any one time. This is especially true when it comes to a certain project.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have only followed the clues available to you so far, without seeing where they ultimately lead. Someone expresses disappointment.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A recent decision has you considering options that were not open to you before. What waits just over the horizon can bring you much pleasure.
