Born today, you are not always the best person to instruct others, for you too often allow yourself to get impatient with the tedium of teaching and learning, and choose to skip steps that so often make the difference between ignorance and knowledge. When you are working with someone who shares your knowledge and expertise, however, you can get tremendous things done, for you do not have to worry that your partner will keep up with you.
To say you are "self-made" is something of an understatement. Though you may have gone through all manner of formal schooling or training, the fact remains that you put to use the things you learn in ways that are difficult to define and surely impossible to imitate.
Also born on this date are: Elie Wiesel, writer; Truman Capote, novelist; Deborah Kerr, actress; Johnny Mathis, singer; Jenna Elfman, actress; Lacey Chabert, actress.
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.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Being color-coordinated is perhaps overrated, and yet you may naturally find yourself working with an integrated palette that suits you well!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You mustn't let others know that you have grown tired of something that they have long called "yours," but you can make changes today, surely.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What you do today must be in line with someone's expectations. You don't have to satisfy them in every detail, but you must do your best.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone is looking over your work and preparing to respond to your recent request. If necessary, you can repeat yourself and do even better.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A wide variety will satisfy you today, so you mustn't limit yourself to just one or two of anything. You may have to guard against overindulgence.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are in danger of getting lost in the details today before you even grasp the big picture. A friend gives advice -- but do you need it?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may want to assume a spectator's stance today rather than that of a participant. This is almost sure to suit a partner very well.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to play it by ear today, as the experts upon whom you usually rely are nowhere to be found. This will be a confidence booster!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're far more interested in encouraging growth than in impeding progress -- and you know just how to do that in the time provided.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Now is no time to be thinking about how things look, but rather about how to get the job done in the time allotted. You must be efficient!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What you seek may be near at hand today but still hidden from view. Take a look around! You may have to get your hands dirty, too.
PISCES (Feb. 18-March 20) -- You're after quality, not quantity -- but if you happen to have too much of a good thing when all is said and done, who are you to complain?
