Born today, you are a plotter who always has two, three or four viable ideas at play in your mind at any given time. Which you hit on and decide to develop fully is anyone's guess. There are times when you may say one thing and do another -- and then turn right around again and reassert your original position. You do not consider that kind of inconsistency a fault, and if it works for you then you don't necessarily care if it is a puzzle to others. You must take care, however, that you never intentionally flout authority or bend the rules -- for it is only one small step from bending to breaking!
You are quite adept at concealing your true feelings -- or, rather, at measuring just how much you should reveal in any given situation. Still, it may come as a surprise to many to learn just how emotional you can be when it comes to the key relationships in your life.
Also born on this date are: Bella Thorne, actress; Bruno Mars, singer; Matt Damon, actor; Chevy Chase, actor and comic; R.L. Stine, author; Sigourney Weaver, actress; Jesse Jackson, civil rights leader.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You mustn't let a matter of taste stand between you and someone with whom you have much more in common. You can reach a compromise, surely.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone may teach you how to do something very few others know how to do -- but you may not take to it as expected. Don't give up prematurely.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A look back at something you did a while ago gives you the inspiration and vision you need to accomplish something new and much more difficult.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are able to guide someone in a new direction today; if you're willing, you will be able to do much the same in your own way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be able to transform the impossible into something not only possible, but probable. It all depends on how you see yourself today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- No matter how much you may dislike something that someone else does on a regular basis, you won't be able to convince him or her to stop.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can get in the groove very quickly today, but when it comes to a certain social event you may not be as prepared as you should be.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your attempts to keep tabs on those around you must not be allowed to cross the line into "snooping." You must respect other people's privacy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- At the heart of a key relationship is an issue that you are not eager to face any time soon. The other party knows just how you feel.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Despite any plans you may have, you must be willing to make time for a friend who is in a tight spot. A surprise pops up after dark.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you have heard from a friend recently is no idle threat. He or she means business, so you must be ready to face the music.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may indulge in certain activities today only if it doesn't keep you from doing what someone in charge is expecting you to do.
