Born today, you can be highly critical of others, especially those who do not live up to your lofty expectations or share your high morals and overall view of the world and the people in it. What this means, of course, is that you're likely to find yourself in conflict with others far more often than in harmony, which is too bad, really -- for you have the makings of a warm companion and a dear, loyal, valuable friend.
Also born on this date are: Hugh Jackman, actor; Kirk Cameron, actor; Luciano Pavarotti, operatic tenor; Bode Miller, Olympic skier; Tyler Blackburn, actor; Susan Anton, actress; Ralph Vaughan Williams, composer.
You are drawn to issues that are "larger than yourself," and indeed, you may in fact lead a very spiritual, even religious life. You crave knowledge of life and death and everything in between. It's the truth you seek, and yet you recognize that the truth is, itself, often nothing more than your own interpretation of evidence that could suggest any number of realities.
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 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A favor done for another today may lead to a favor you receive in return before you even know you need it. The pace quickens some today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your capabilities are many, but today you are not likely to be at all impressed with yourself. What has dampened your spirits in this way?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There are times when what you know and what you think are somehow strangely divergent. It's important for you to look at the facts.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are able to stand up to criticism today; you know what you've done and why, and there's no reason to be ashamed of it in any way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to take more time today to finish something better than someone else -- but making any sort of comparison would be unfair to both parties.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're eager to see things more clearly after a period of confusion or doubt. Today, things begin to line up very much as hoped and expected.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Something you've tried to hide is likely to be uncovered today; you'll realize that there was no need to conceal it in the first place.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may realize that your efforts at communicating with a certain someone have recently been subpar. It's not too late to start over!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It may be time for you to immerse yourself once more in a favorite legend or historical event. It speaks to you now more than ever.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It's important for you to surround yourself with the right collaborators; today, cooperation in all forms will give you more than strength.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may require someone to help you out of the rut you are currently in; though you have your preference, it's likely to be someone else.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Surprise contact with an old friend gives you the boost you need right now. You're impressed with his or her progress since last you met.
