Born today, you are never one to shrink from the spotlight, and in fact more often than not, you will seek it out -- or, if at all possible, grab it with your own two hands and train it on yourself! You rather thrive on notoriety, and you will do almost anything to attract attention to yourself or to a cause for which you are dedicating your time and energy. Your beliefs are strongly held, and you will abandon them for nobody.
Though you may come across as quite rough and ill-mannered to some, to others you simply have the unfettered enthusiasm of a child. When you do a thing, you do it all the way -- and when you are in love, there is nothing else so important to you. You lavish gifts and attention on the object of your affection, and you never hide your feelings from those whom you love.
Also born on this date are: Tracy Nelson, actress; Anne Tyler, writer; Helen Reddy, singer; Minnie Pearl, comedienne; Marion Ross, actress; Pablo Picasso, artist; Richard E. Byrd, polar explorer; Leo G. Carroll, actor; Georges Bizet, composer.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Take care that you are not unintentionally firing someone up and inviting a challenge that you are not equipped to counter. Play it safe today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can rely on what you know to see you through today, without having to worry about learning something new -- but this will change soon.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're ready for a payoff that might not come today. You'll want to keep your disappointment in check, as it will only hold you back.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's time to speak the truth, regardless of what others might think of you as a result. Only you know what's really going on right now.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be seeing yourself in the wrong light at this time. An adjusted self-image will allow you to move forward more quickly -- in many areas.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll be able to show off one or two valuable skills today. A rival watches you closely but can't match you just yet. Seek an agreement.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll see things clearly for the first part of the day -- until a surprise event has you doubting yourself. Difficulties arise as a result.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're able to keep certain fears at bay today, but one in particular refuses to lie quiet. You must be willing to face it directly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Sleep and other rest may be interrupted by concerns over that which you have no control. Seek advice from someone in your inner circle.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may find yourself and a rival going round and round over the same tired issue. Isn't it time to move on to something more urgent?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll be able to swing into action today just in time -- and help someone else stay out of a situation he or she will not be able to control.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be able to pull off a trick today that others have only tried unsuccessfully to perform. Your secret is safe -- for now.
