Born today, you have a knack for coming from behind and claiming victory at the last moment, surprising everyone who made the unwarranted assumption that you were out of the running and not a factor in the race. This is your pattern in all endeavors, and it is one that gives you a tremendous advantage -- and woe betide anyone who underestimates you in any way! You have tremendous talents, and the self-knowledge that comes from paying attention to how you are affected by the world in which you live. This is a rich and rewarding combination, and you are not likely to find yourself taking a wrong turn in life -- especially when a relationship, or your professional success, is on the line. You employ creativity and a great deal of patience when working your way out of difficult situations.
You will never allow yourself to get in any kind of rut. Your many interests will steer you here and there, allowing you to remain clear of anything that might "trap" you into a pattern of behavior that ceases to give you what you want. For this reason, you may change careers more than once in your lifetime.
Also born on this date are: Elisabeth Shue, actress; Ioan Gruffud, actor; Carole Lombard, actress; George Westinghouse, entrepreneur; Britt Ekland, actress; Jeremy Sisto, actor; Janet Gaynor, actress; Thor Heyerdahl, explorer.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to be given a rare opportunity to do something that allows you to test your limits. Fear and excitement go hand in hand today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may ask yourself again and again why you did a certain thing the way you did -- but a close examination proves you had no other option.
