Born today, you want nothing more than to see the people around you prosper -- but you insist that they do so by following the dictates of their better angels, by living an upstanding life and by doing nothing that would in any way reflect badly upon them or you. You don't believe in rules; you believe in doing the right thing -- and that the "right thing" is something that comes from within, organically, and is not something dictated by a set of rules and regulations.
You have remarkable style, and when you enter a room, everyone takes notice. This is something you know how to use to your advantage when it happens, but it's not something you anticipate. You keep your feet firmly on the ground, even when your aspirations are quite lofty. You are attracted to the "long shot," and may find yourself working for a "lost cause" at least once in your life.
Also born on this date are: Mahatma Gandhi, Indian leader; Sting, singer; Kelly Ripa, actress and TV host; Avery Brooks, actor; Richard III, King of England; Groucho Marx, actor and comic; Bud Abbott, actor and comic.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You've been so busy thinking about what might happen that you have failed to take into account what already has! Go back and review.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can lead by example today. Give others what they want by demonstrating both your moral and intellectual prowess. You can win the day.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The battle may be won today, but not the war -- not yet. You will still have to engage in a major campaign; start making plans right now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Others may call you a "show-off," but you should still do all you can to see that a certain situation is resolved in your favor.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're not able to stop something that has been taking it out of you for quite some time. Perhaps fighting isn't the answer; try accepting it!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A reversal of sorts has you counting your blessings by day's end. How easy it might have been for things to have turned out differently.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Try as you might, you're not yet able to break that particular habit that's been keeping you up nights. Trust a friend who steps in.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You've probably waited just as long as you can before doing your part to help someone else in a major effort. It's not too late.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What begins as a game becomes quite serious before the day is out. You may have to spend a lot of time recalibrating your motivation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can pick up a lot of new information -- and a lot of new techniques -- simply by watching an "expert" at work. It'll be your turn soon.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Now is the time for you to put your foot down; what you want can be yours, as long as you are firm in your request and clear in your demands.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Someone is expecting you to fall short today -- and it may be someone in your "inner circle." You can prevail and prove your expertise.
