Born today, you are confident and capable but never one to develop an unrealistic assessment of your own talents. You know what you can do, and you know what you cannot, and you shape your personal and professional lives accordingly. You have tremendous powers of attraction; you know how to get others to look at you simply by adjusting how you speak, walk or look.
Though you are sure to have a great many acquaintances and admirers -- often as a result of your work -- the truth is that your circle of close friends is likely to be quite small. But though it be small, it is sure also to be tightly knit, faithful, true and honest; they are the kind of people you can turn to for anything -- and they can do the same, of course.
Also born on this date are: Kate Winslet, actress; Bernie Mac, actor; Jesse Eisenberg, actor; Mario Lemieux, hockey player; Larry Fine, actor and comic; Karen Allen, actress; Guy Pearce, actor; Chester A. Arthur, U.S. president.
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.
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You must remember that safety is an issue, regardless of your current level of confidence. You must not bust too many boundaries.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your perspective about certain professional issues may be changing at this time. You can and should bounce ideas off someone you trust.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're eager to hear news from someone far from home. Your efforts to reach out have been only moderately successful -- but keep trying.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's not enough to be "in the ballpark" today; your calculations must be accurate in all things. Those in control may not be at all forgiving.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to run through something two or three times today before you are satisfied not only with your efforts but with the potential reward.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You know where you must begin, but you're not sure how to position yourself there. Perhaps you should try what someone else does today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will require some extra room to navigate a tricky situation as it evolves. Someone steps out of the shadows to offer you directions.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may not be able to do things in the order in which you are most comfortable today, but getting them done in any order is the point.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A new opportunity presents itself today, but upon further examination you'll realize that it's not so new after all. Are you ready?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may receive news of an advancement of sorts of which there has been no "official" word. You will want to investigate on your own.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll reap benefits today from someone else's error -- but take care you don't make things worse for anyone by being a "poor winner."
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll be able to get only as far as circumstances allow today, and you must be satisfied with the progress you make. Don't push it.
