Born today, others see you as someone to be trusted, someone to rely on, someone to look up to and admire -- and so you are. But you are much more than that, surely, and your occasional indulgence in behavior that is anything but what is expected of you is a part of that "shadow self" that you are sure to cultivate and protect throughout your lifetime. You understand that you must, at times, be what other people expect and want you to be -- for it is likely, too, that your very livelihood will depend upon it.
You may never be the first to do certain things, but you're surely going to be the best -- and you will do all you can to make sure that when it comes to the things for which you are known, no one can match you.
Also born on this date are: Julia Roberts, actress; Edith Head, costume designer; Cleo Laine, actress; Jane Alexander, actress; Joaquin Phoenix, actor; Bill Gates, computer mogul; Jonas Salk, medical researcher; Dennis Franz, actor.
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 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Whether it's "fate" or something even more mysterious at work, you may discover that something is pushing you in a new direction today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The answers you seek may not be readily available to you today, but you can still keep moving in the right direction. Trust yourself!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be waiting for the perfect opportunity today, but that's not likely to reveal itself -- yet. You must work with what's available to you.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone may be using your own words against you -- but you have a trick up your sleeve that prevents this from having any lasting impact.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Focus on what you know how to do today; if you wander into unknown territory, you're likely to come up short -- and that you cannot afford!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your mind may be on another time and another place today -- and there are people from your past who will influence you as well, all day long.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must be willing to say more today than you have in the recent past. If you want to be taken seriously, you must reveal what you know.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You require only a little luck today to push you over the finish line -- but remember that there are other races to be run almost immediately.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You understand more than you are letting on at this time. When the time comes, you'll want to engage in a way that reveals your strengths.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can encourage those around you and inspire them to achieve more than expected. You've shown them the way, now you must get them going!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A complex situation demands your complete attention today -- but it shouldn't be long before you have a viable solution plotted out.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- When giving others words of advice, make sure you listen to them as well. You may have steered yourself in the wrong direction recently.
