Born today, you inspire trust, and can stick with a plan through any hardship to ensure success. While you can perform all manner of tasks entirely on your own, you do your best work in tandem with others -- and contrary to popular belief, you don't have to call the shots all the time! Indeed, you can follow orders and perform well above par simply doing what you are told. You believe in the natural hierarchy of things; you don't want a rank beginner leading others -- nor do you believe that someone with years of experience under his or her belt should be bringing up the rear. You are always eager to put your ability on display for others to appreciate and to learn from.
Because you are generally a trusting individual, you may at times fall prey to those who would take advantage of this and deceive you into doing something that proves to be a bad idea. You are quick to learn from such mistakes, however, and you're not likely to be fooled twice.
Also born on this date are: Lillian Gish, actress; Dwight D. Eisenhower, U.S. military leader and president; Ralph Lauren, fashion designer; William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania; e.e. cummings, poet.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 15
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Someone you hardly know is likely to figure prominently in your affairs today in a way that makes you wonder what is really going on.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You don't want to be a part of any secrets today. The truth is all that matters -- especially when tending to the needs of a few friends.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The pieces of a personal puzzle fall into place rather neatly today -- but you may realize that the picture is not what you expected.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's not going to be easy to get your message across quickly. Take the time to put the words together in the most effective way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must be prepared to deal with an issue that others are not willing to address. Your perspective provides everyone with a level of comfort.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are going to have to express your feelings openly and honestly today to a certain someone. Much more than expected is on the line.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may receive an offer that you cannot, in good conscience, accept. The journeys you both are on are not compatible -- at least not yet.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Others are likely to make suggestions that have you wondering if what you've been working on is really "enough." Questions must be answered.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The negotiation you had expected to sail through isn't likely to go quite as planned. A sacrifice may be unavoidable before day's end.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be asked a question that is almost impossible to answer -- at least not without risking offending the one who asked the question.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Something you have scheduled is likely to be a very big deal, but getting ready may stump you -- until the ensemble reveals itself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Getting someone else's help may seem to be a good idea, but you must be sure that he or she knows what it is you need. No guesswork!
