Born today, you are, for the most part, an amiable and easygoing individual, one for whom social affairs are often a highlight, and who strives to avoid conflict at every turn. You're not likely to succeed at this at all times, however, and it is fortunate that you have a way of dealing with conflict when it does arise that limits its longevity and almost ensures that similar problems will not recur. You are very quick to learn how to behave in all situations, but it would be a mistake for anyone to think that you do not have strong alliances or enemies of any kind.
There are those who credit you with having much style, but little substance -- and this, too, is a misconception. You are actually quite deep, and you give everything the serious thought and consideration it requires. Your personal beliefs are deeply held and not easily shaken.
Also born on this date are: Kim Kardashian, entrepreneur; Carrie Fisher, actress; Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister; Judge Judy Sheindlin, TV judge; Dizzy Gillespie, musician; Alfred Nobel, inventor; Samuel Taylor Coleridge, poet.
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.
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be able to change someone's mind today about a key issue -- but take care that he or she doesn't try to change yours. You must stand firm.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A chance encounter proves pivotal to you today. What might happen tomorrow remains shrouded in mystery, though certain signs are evident.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can score a personal victory today without causing anyone else to rack up a loss. This is possible only because of what you know.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can put more than one skill on display today, but don't try to do everything on your own. You must leave room for others to participate.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be talked about today -- but isn't that better than not being talked about, all things considered? You want to be noticed, surely.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll enjoy more than one sign of good things to come -- but that doesn't mean a simple mistake can't derail everything. Use caution.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The depth of your knowledge of a certain topic is likely to be tested in some way today. Take care not to make any careless errors.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll want to study the difference today between what is evident and what is not -- and how they both affect you, independently and together.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may get the chance to review certain key issues with a friend or partner today before you are required to put your knowledge to the test.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Much depends upon your ability to see all sides of a certain issue today. Others will be sure to argue, and you'll want to argue right back!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can create far more today than you have in the recent past, and your efforts are sure to be noticed. This will prove a step up.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You will want to give a little less and get a little more today, which is very different from your pattern the past days or weeks.
