Born today, you are one of the most direct and straightforward individuals born under your sign -- to the point of being labeled "blunt" or even "rude" at times by those who don't understand that that is simply your way. You have little time for any sort of small talk or indirect conversation; if you are going to talk about a thing, you're going to do it in the most up-front manner possible. And there's very little you're unwilling to talk about in the first place! You have a horror of "hiding" from the truth and feel that many of the world's evils derive from people doing just that -- or bending the truth in some way to suit their cause or agenda.
You are rather sensitive, yet at the same time you can be reckless when it comes to life and limb: The things you enjoy doing most may well put you in some kind of physical danger. It is always best for you to learn all you can about a given endeavor, so that you minimize the chances of being hurt.
Also born on this date are: Mario Lopez, TV host; Brett Favre, football player; Dale Earnhardt Jr., race car driver; David Lee Roth, singer; Ben Vereen, actor, singer, dancer; Troy Tulowitzki, baseball player; Thelonious Monk, musician; Tanya Tucker, singer; Helen Hayes, actress; Bradley Whitford, actor; Ed Wood, director; Chris Penn, actor; Giuseppe Verdi, composer; Peter Coyote, actor; Charles Dance, actor.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You must be willing to face the truth today, even though it's not likely to give you much comfort. You benefit from a realistic outlook.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not be able to keep up your current efforts for very long, as you will soon have to deal with a shortage of energy or resources -- or both.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will enjoy being needed at this time. A friend steers others toward you in the hope that you can help -- and you certainly can!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You fear that a storm is brewing just over the horizon, and though you don't have specifics, you will want to prepare for its fast approach.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone who has been watching you is eager to make contact -- but not for the reason you had suspected. Things take an unusual turn today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You find that although the odds are in your favor, getting a certain job done on time proves difficult for reasons you may never have suspected.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You know what's going on around you, but you may not have the first clue as to how to handle it efficiently. Watch what someone else does.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have put yourself in a tricky position that only now proves more difficult than you can handle on your own. Ask for assistance!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's important for you to know that you can handle a certain situation on your own -- even though you don't have to. Today, do what you must.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your opinion will prove valuable to almost everyone involved in a certain endeavor -- one that you seem to understand more clearly than most.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not be one to keep a secret today, and you have to let people know that before they reveal things that must not be shared!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You want to part of the "in" crowd, but in reality, you have little in common with them, and they can offer you little of value right now.
