Born today, you may not always attract the most attention, but your ability to get things done behind the scenes is perhaps second to none. Indeed, you enjoy all manner of background work, and you may at times find yourself embroiled in situations that are less than savory, and perhaps even underhanded or illicit. For the most part, however, you do try to keep things aboveboard.
You are rarely one to talk when listening will suffice, and in this way you are able to learn a great deal -- especially in those situations which may, ultimately, lead to conflict. While you will eschew conflict whenever possible, you're more than willing to fight when you find yourself at the center of the storm. You don't like to make decisions without weighing all the pros and cons.
Also born on this date are: Mario Lopez, TV host; Brett Favre, football player; Dale Earnhardt Jr., race car driver; David Lee Roth, singer; Ben Vereen, actor, singer, dancer; Troy Tulowitzki, baseball player; Thelonious Monk, musician.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may find yourself in a serious disagreement with those who are usually on the same page with you. Have you changed, or have they?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You mustn't let a trivial issue come between you and a friend. He or she is waiting for you to establish some new ground rules, perhaps.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can't expect to cross the finish line today, but you can surely have it within sight by day's end. Pacing yourself results in a victory.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You needn't do as much today as you did yesterday or the day before. Prioritize and you can provide yourself with much-needed rest.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You don't have to do everything in a traditional manner today. Try breaking barriers, and you'll increase your own level of enjoyment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll have an idea today that may be very easy to promote. Whether or not you realize it, the world is ready for what you have to offer.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Indulge in flights of fancy today, but realize that you'll be letting something else go if you give preference to such things. Balance is key.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Others will recognize that you are the perfect person for a certain job, but you will still have your reservations. Start slowly, if necessary.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Just when you are wondering how you're going to make it through a tough time, the solution is likely to present itself today. Rejoice!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A lack of confidence may simply be a dissatisfaction with the status quo. Try something new; you'll realize you're perfectly capable.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You receive something of a shock today, but recovery can be quick if you share your troubles with those around you. Don't isolate yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's a good day to clear the air. A long-standing conflict can quite possibly be resolved permanently; you must be willing to compromise.
