Born today, you are not always the most fashionable individual, and you often simply do not care what clothes you wear or how you are presenting yourself -- even in public situations. You believe in substance over style, and as often as possible you let your actions speak for you. You are not the kind to use words well -- though you can put things plainly, even bluntly, when put to the test.
Like so many Libra natives, you insist on being treated fairly and on getting the same chance at success as anyone else. Unfortunately, however, there may be times in which you do not extend this same consideration to others; you can be rather self-centered in this regard. You are more vulnerable to criticism than many other Libra natives.
Also born on this date are: Luke Perry, actor; Eleanor Roosevelt, U.S. first lady; Steve Young, football player; Daryl Hall, singer; Jane Krakowski, actress; Dottie West, singer; Jerome Robbins, choreographer; Elmore Leonard, author.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your willingness to speak out about a certain issue will give you the advantage for a time today; you must strike while the iron is hot!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be drawn to things that others have warned you against, but you're feeling rather "invincible" today and want to take the risk.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's time to negotiate with someone who has been standing in your way. If you're the first to offer certain terms, they'll likely be accepted.
CANCER (June 21-July 20) -- A certain someone has you feeling a certain way today -- and that may be quite confusing to you. Ask yourself what's really going on!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Now is no time for you to turn the other cheek; if you've been wronged in any way, you must address it directly and demand some satisfaction.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are expecting a great deal from a new relationship -- but have you made that clear to the other person or persons involved? Use your words.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can sort things out with a friend today and ensure that it's smooth sailing from here on out, or at least for the foreseeable future.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- That which is most difficult to identify is likely the very thing you want to pinpoint, secure and examine. Don't give up the search.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You will surely benefit from a good, long talk with someone who has played a central role in your life for quite some time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Facts come to light today that change the way you think about a certain key issue. Family members quickly shift gears with you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you are looking for is close at hand, but you mustn't look desperate; take your time, and let others think that it's all under control.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can prove that your feelings are in sync with those of a friend or loved one -- but then it's time to move on to other significant issues.
