Born today, you tend to be more artistic than intellectual, and you allow your heart to lead you more often than your head -- but you're not the kind to abandon thought altogether, surely! You recognize that there are times when you must step back from the brink to which your instincts and feelings have led you, and think about what you are doing -- and, if necessary, back away from any perceived danger and commit yourself to increased safety -- whether it be in your professional affairs or personal life.
Also born on this date are: Pam Dawber, actress; Melina Mercouri, actress; Jean-Claude Van Damme, actor and martial artist; George C. Scott, actor; Chuck Berry, rocker; Peter Boyle, actor.
You may at times have trouble making simple decisions, and your daily affairs may be somewhat disorganized as a result. Conversely, you seem to have no trouble at all wrapping your head around the bigger issues in life -- perhaps because they engage your heart as well.
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.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Now is the time for you to place as much stock in what someone has to offer as you possibly can. Success depends on trust and loyalty.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Recent experiences will prove quite valuable today as you face a situation that requires you to be almost entirely instinctual.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not be able to answer questions put to you today without taking some time to examine the background of those doing the asking.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Today you may not have to take the same kinds of risks that you have been taking over the past week or two. Pressure lets up just in time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be in a tight spot before the day is out. Don't be in too much of a hurry to solve the problem; take time to think things through.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll get what you deserve today -- which is not necessarily what you think you deserve. You'll spy many contradictions all around you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A small change in plans has a very big impact on your day. Those who are following in your footsteps will be amazed by your flexibility.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Give someone what he or she wants today. A favor is likely to be granted to you very soon -- though under different circumstances, surely.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You don't want to hold someone hostage today by threatening to reveal a secret; you're not likely to benefit in the way you expect.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have less time than expected today to sort through a complicated mental puzzle. You're going to have to take a chance.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your organizational skills may not be on display throughout the day, and others are likely going to have to clean up a few of your messes.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're after very specific results today, but the way you are going about it may baffle observers. You're not following a straight path.
