Born today, you are always there for others, even when you are engaged in your own solitary efforts. You will drop everything to tend to a friend or family member in need, and you would think nothing of uprooting your very life in order to go to one who calls to you for long-term assistance. This connection you have with other people shapes not only your personal and domestic affairs but also your professional life.
You sometimes wear your emotions on your sleeve, but this is not something you are afraid of, for you are confident that the people in your life will keep you safe from any emotional harm -- just as you will do the same for them. Life, for you, is an exercise in collaboration of all kinds -- but emotional support is perhaps the most important thing one person can provide another.
Also born on this date are: Elisabeth Shue, actress; Ioan Gruffudd, actor; Carole Lombard, actress; George Westinghouse, engineer; Britt Ekland, actress; Jeremy Sisto, actor; Janet Gaynor, actress; Thor Heyerdahl, explorer.
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.
MONDAY, OCTOBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- As you prepare to take on something new, you'll be reminded of why you agreed to take it on in the first place. Your commitment is reinforced.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Others are waiting for you to put in your two cents -- but you'll have much more than that to offer, and what you say will likely do the trick.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Recent attempts to resolve a conflict between two of your friends have been disappointing, but today you can make it happen.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll benefit from one or two important insights today -- though you must remember that not all such realizations can be immediately applied.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What you need is just beyond your reach today. Stay put and don't rock the boat, as you and it will be closer still tomorrow, no doubt.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's time to pick up the pace. You mustn't let someone stand in your way today -- nor must you be overly aggressive as you assert yourself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll be expected to absorb new information very quickly throughout the day -- and you'll be able to put it to use almost immediately.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're not lacking confidence today, but something is holding you back. Dig deep, and you'll discover the source of this "paralysis."
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may feel as though you are being much more creative and expressive than you've been in the recent past. Friends and supporters approve.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- There are many waiting in the wings to step in should one of your usual supporters back out. You needn't worry about having to go solo.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- This is a good day for doing what you've "always wanted to do." Take care, however, that you don't jump into something too demanding.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Recent activities have been taking it out of you, and you've been finding it hard to recover. Perhaps you can take better care of yourself?
