Born today, you are nothing if not forward-thinking, and you always seem to be hatching some new plan or other, even before you have set a previous one in motion. It is very difficult for other people to keep up with you, not always because you are simply moving at such a fast pace, but because they never know just when you will turn this way or that and change course without warning.
While positive, you can acknowledge the negative influences in your life, and in so doing you can minimize their overall effects. This is very much like "knowing your enemy": The more you are aware of what can or might happen, the more able you are to avoid it. You are open and tolerant and believe that variety is the spice of life.
Also born on this date are: Alicia Silverstone, actress; Susan Sarandon, actress; Charlton Heston, actor; Rutherford B. Hayes, U.S. president; Liev Schreiber, actor; Christoph Waltz, actor; Buster Keaton, actor and comic; Anne Rice, author.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A pressing matter has you juggling your plans today. You may want to invite a third party to help you keep all the necessary balls in the air.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What you've been waiting for is likely just around the next corner -- but getting there is going to take a while. Use your time wisely.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can learn much from the way someone else approaches a problem very similar to the one you find yourself in today. Pay attention to details.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can spread your wings and fly today -- or you can shy away from the opportunity and miss out completely. Risk or safety -- which will it be?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- While following another's progress, you may be struck by the ease with which he or she overcomes obstacles. You can do the same today!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're in the perfect frame of mind to tackle a problem that's been haunting you for some time. An old flame exerts a favorable influence.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Ignore what goes on around you at your own risk today. Much that you encounter will affect you -- not today, perhaps, but very soon indeed.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You know what others are doing, but it doesn't interest you much. You're far more likely to engage in something that they find unusual.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Disagreements are almost unavoidable today, but when it comes to overall intent, you and a loved one will likely be in lockstep.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The unusual becomes the usual before the day is out. What a loved one offers you is all but irresistible, and you'll want your share.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Questions of style and aesthetics arise today -- but you'll be able to deal with anything of the kind that comes up. You're the "expert"!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can give a loved one exactly what he or she wants, but by day's end, you'll wonder when it's going to be your turn. Speak up!
