Born today, you can be on the one hand quite positive, jovial, lighthearted and ebullient; on the other, however, you can be dark and brooding, and even quite negative in your outlook and behavior. Fortunately, you are keenly aware of these two conflicting sides of your personality, and you always do whatever you can to promote and publicize the former while minimizing and obscuring the latter. When you feel that you are sinking into one of your cloudy, gloomy moods, you tend to withdraw from society and spend a good deal of time on your own; you don't want to poison others with your own toxicity, surely.
Because there is a part of you that you prefer to keep hidden from view, it may become somewhat habitual for you at times to be more secretive than you have to be. You must never do anything to hurt other people.
Also born on this date are: Annette Funicello, actress; Catherine Deneuve, actress; Jeff Goldblum, actor; Tony Roberts, actor; Timothy Leary, professor; Brian Boitano, Olympic figure skater; Karl Jansky, physicist.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to settle for something that is not quite right today, if only to ensure that someone else gets what he or she really wants.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must pay close attention to the clock today, and let no seconds tick by without being of some use. Time wasted is time lost.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Others may finally see what it is you've been trying to convince them of for quite some time. The pace picks up as a result, and progress is made.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll want to be competitive today, but you'll also want to avoid a head-to-head contest with someone who may be better equipped.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you're at a safe distance from an apparent danger, you can study it and maintain some measure of safety. Move closer at your own risk, however.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Sorting through things that just will not cooperate with you may prove frustrating today, but a certain degree of organization is necessary.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What you've heard through the grapevine recently may be confirmed today -- in real time and with solid evidence. This changes everything.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you want may not be entirely accessible to you today, but with a little work, you can surely see it move closer than ever before.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You want very badly to make your mark in some way, but there are many bad ideas floating around out there that you want to avoid!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have room to do more today than usual. A daring move on your part can put others in their place -- but remember, it's all in fun!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may require careful guidance today as you explore territory that is foreign to you. You won't need this kind of help very much longer.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You want to gather only the best teammates today -- which means that there are some past associates who won't be part of today's endeavors.
