Born today, you treat everyone around with fairness and civility, but you don't really connect with everyone on an intimate level. You save your true care and loyalty for a very few people -- some of whom you have no doubt known since childhood. You can at times be frustratingly aloof, and you are never one to wear your heart on your sleeve.
You must always do your best to avoid illness; once sick, it is very easy for you to become more sick -- even, perhaps, dangerously so. With proper diet, plenty of rest and the avoidance of that which you know to be bad for you -- including overwork -- you can enjoy long-term good health.
Also born on this date are: Bella Thorne, actress; Bruno Mars, singer; Matt Damon, actor; Chevy Chase, actor and comic; R.L. Stine, author; Sigourney Weaver, actress; Jesse Jackson, civil rights leader; Stephanie Zimbalist, actress.
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.
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You mustn't let anyone restrict your freedom in any way today. This may require you to take a rather unorthodox stance, but so be it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are facing one or two tasks that you are not eager to do -- but getting them done now will free you up to do other things later.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are perhaps better equipped than anyone else to deal with a certain problem that has surfaced on the home front. Talk about it!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Once you know where the problem lies, you can deal with it directly -- but getting to the heart of the matter will take time today, surely.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are likely to be recognized for something you did almost by accident -- but it's sure to win you a good deal of valuable attention.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You or a friend may be guilty of doing what should not have been done. If you're the responsible party, you can reverse the error. If not, troubles lie ahead.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're going to want to make it easier for people to get in touch with you -- today and in the days to come. You'll need more than tech help.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can do more than you are required to do, but is that really going to hold you in good stead? Right now, you must stick to the game plan.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You overlook a certain personal issue at your peril. You may wonder how you can make time for it, but that'll happen as a matter of course.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be offered a "job" of sorts that is at first tempting -- but when you discover what is required, you'll know it's not for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Cooperation is essential today, and yet it may not be easy to come by. Many are wanting to go solo today -- including yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are eager to work with a certain someone who has challenged you in ways no one else has. It's possible, but will require negotiation.
