Born today, you seem on one hand to be not at all what people think of when they think "Libra native" -- and yet, down deep, you are so closely aligned with members of your own sign that it is a wonder anyone could think otherwise. You seem, at times, to be quite fickle and changeable, but the truth is that you are quite set in your ways and have very solid principles and ideals to which you try to remain true come what will. You can be quite aloof in your dealings with others, but yet you are, like so many Libra natives, romantic and charming.
You can be quite self-indulgent at times. You are best to stick close to one or two individuals who know how to keep you from immersing yourself too deeply in anything that might not be good for you.
Also born on this date are: Kellie Martin, actress; Angela Lansbury, actress; Suzanne Somers, actress, singer, entertainer; Tim Robbins, actor and director; Eugene O'Neill, playwright; Oscar Wilde, playwright and humorist; Noah Webster, dictionary editor.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You don't want to turn your back on those who truly need you right now, but you're going to have to schedule your time very carefully today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If "no" is your answer to a question you are asked today, so be it. You don't have to discuss any further! Take a stand, and stick to it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be called upon to move mountains today -- and you can do it, provided you remain positive and don't start feeling "put upon."
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're eager to see your rights respected today -- but some are poised against you because of a fundamental difference in ideology.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have trouble getting started on a certain project today simply because your heart isn't in it -- yet. A good friend has the answer.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be getting all manner of "hints" today, and yet you still cannot come up with the right answer until you get firsthand experience.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Issues of cost may keep you from doing everything you had hoped to do today; budget wisely and prioritize, and you should be satisfied.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be trying to do too much all at once today. Narrow your focus, and you'll realize that many tasks are simply not essential right now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Put your best foot forward today -- and that means doing and saying the right things at the right time. Packaging makes a difference.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're trying to rally your forces in support of a certain cause, but not everyone agrees with how you should proceed. Discuss issues openly!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may require some extra training before you are able to do something well that you've tried only once or twice before. Get to it!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can have a positive impact on those around you today, but you mustn't get carried away. You can only do what you can do.
