Born today, you don't always do things the way tradition says they should be done, for you are led by something far more deeply ingrained than any awareness of rules or expectations. You are led, instead, by the simple need to explore the limits of your own nature and abilities; if you are doing that, you will be happy. You must be true to yourself; you cannot and will not be limited by the rules that others make -- for who are they to know what your limits should be?
You are far more self-concerned than most others born under your sign. You are quick to fall in love, simply because you love the feeling of being in love -- but sometimes you are not willing to go the distance, because sustaining love isn't the same as falling in love! Be warned: It is likely that you will leave many angry exes in your wake.
Also born on this date are: Sacha Baron Cohen, actor and comedian; Nancy Kerrigan, Olympic skater; Kelly Preston, actress; Jerry Rice, football player; Marie Osmond, singer and entertainer; Paul Simon, singer and songwriter; Lenny Bruce, comic; Margaret Thatcher, British prime minister; Yves Montand, actor; Cornel Wilde, actor; L.L. Bean, outdoorsman, merchant.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Do you expect to get more chances than just one today? If so, you must be ready to act when they come upon you, for they won't last long!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're confident that you can get the better of a rival, given the circumstances that both of you find yourselves in today. Don't let up!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Take care that in your attempt to "sneak up" on someone, you don't actually announce yourself prematurely. Avoid complicating things.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- An awkward situation can be resolved very quickly today -- but in the process you may have to subject yourself to a little embarrassment.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The gap between confident and overconfident is very narrow indeed, and you must take care that you don't let yourself cross over into the latter.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone else's needs may have to take precedence over your own today, as you seek a solution to a problem that has taken you by surprise.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone from your past appears on the scene and makes a request that takes you by surprise at first. You'll be eager to fulfill it!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A competition is likely to heat up today, and you may be pulled in against your will. Very soon you'll be fully engaged, to be sure.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll have to rely on others today to make it easy on you when crunch time arrives. You can't be expected to do it all on your own.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're eager to see things from another point of view -- but which one? You can get a taste of what a friend has to offer.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You needn't commit to something new today until you've enjoyed a trial period that allows you to experiment without incurring much risk.
