Born today, you sometimes may operate according to motives that you keep strictly to yourself, and this is something that has other people thinking, on occasion, that you are trying to be deceitful in some way. This is hardly the case! You simply keep things to yourself because you like to wait until ideas are fully cooked before sharing them with almost anyone. Nothing you do is ever completely "impromptu"; your accomplishments, large and small, are the result of planning that allows you to get things right in theory before putting anything into practice. In this way, you keep errors to a minimum -- and maximize your chances for success!
Your emotions run hot, and tend to bubble just beneath the surface, and this makes it difficult for you to conceal your feelings. You have learned, however, never to be ashamed of how you feel, for you know that this is very much a part of who you are and what you can accomplish in life.
Also born on this date are: Julie Andrews, actress and singer; Zach Galifianakis, actor and comedian; Jimmy Carter, U.S. president; Richard Harris, actor; Tom Bosley, actor; Walter Matthau, actor; Matt Cain, baseball player; Stella Stevens, actress; George Peppard, actor; Rod Carew, baseball player; Vladimir Horowitz, pianist.
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.
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will have to be more attentive than usual to someone in need today -- even though you were not the cause of his or her recent loss.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to work harder than usual today to make one thing out of several. It's important for you to have a concrete game plan established.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It'll be easier for you to laugh at certain things today than it has been in recent days. Even your foibles can set you off!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Watch what others are doing around you today and listen to the response they get. You can then come up with a plan to combat a current trend.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are not in a position to call the shots today -- at least, not yet. There are a few things you can do to improve your situation, however.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll be facing a certain challenge before the day is out. Give someone what he asks for now, before you find yourself unable to do so.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may end up somewhere very different from where you intended today, but you can make this work to your advantage -- with a new friend.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are keenly interested in what you can do to make improvements to a situation in which you have only been half-invested in the past.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not have to do what you had feared would fall to you today; if not, you're free to carry on with something much more pleasurable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are going to have to wait your turn today, but you can use the time wisely. Don't let the clock rule all of your behavior, however.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can make something work out all right today, despite -- or even perhaps because of -- the complaints others have filed. Take charge!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your ability to see directly to the heart of the matter will serve you well -- though not everyone is likely to agree with you today.
