Born today, you have been endowed with more potential than almost anyone else born under your sign, and the light that shines from within you is so bright that you will be unable to avoid attracting attention from others. You have tremendous talent, but you are also realistic in your outlook toward life, and you never let your expectations exceed what is, in your view, possible. This can be troubling, for it may keep you from extending your reach at times when, in fact, the stars have presented to you an avenue for greater accomplishment. Still, you know how to make the very best of situations as you see them, and like almost all Libra natives, you are happy with what is rightfully yours -- for fairness and parity are of the utmost importance to you.
You may at times be deceived by someone who is intentionally trying to take advantage of you; you must always be on your guard against such rakish behavior!
Also born on this date are: Kate Winslet, actress; Bernie Mac, comic; Jesse Eisenberg, actor; Mario Lemieux, hockey player; Larry Fine, comic; Karen Allen, actress; Guy Pearce, actor; Ray Kroc, entrepreneur; Allen Ludden, game show host; Steve Miller, musician; Chester A. Arthur, U.S. president; Glynis Johns, actress; Peter Ackroyd, author; Donald Pleasence, actor.
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 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Showing someone your sensitive side isn't a mark of weakness, but of strength -- and today it can do you a world of good as well.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're measuring time in a way that makes it more difficult for you to know just what you can and cannot accomplish. Try simplifying!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be afraid that someone isn't telling you honestly how he or she feels about a certain situation. Why not ask -- face to face?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're sure to make your mark, if not today then tomorrow -- or sometime very soon after that. Keep trying and don't get discouraged!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your connection with someone who shares your outlook is likely to be deepened today as events support a joint venture you've long dreamed of.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to bend, or even break, the rules today -- just a bit -- in order to get something done the way it is supposed to be.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be concerned about "overstaying your welcome," but someone close to you gives you continual reassurance. Trust his or her instincts.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You will hear a great deal about "responsibility" today, and your best response will be to do all you can to fulfill your own -- on schedule.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Others may be telling you something that goes against your better instincts. There's no reason why you can't go it alone today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may choose to remain undercover today as you attempt something that isn't likely to receive official approval -- until you succeed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must be willing to give way today to someone whose energy and vision are more palpable than your own. You can learn a thing or two!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- The time has come for you to stop taking something for nothing -- but it may be difficult to determine the "fair market value."
