Born today, you are able to do things very quickly when you so choose, but often you take the other route and do things at a slow and deliberate pace -- usually so others can keep up with you and benefit from what you do in real time. Like so many others born under your sign, you are concerned first and foremost with parity and justice; you want everyone to be able to enjoy the same opportunities, regardless of their origins or backgrounds -- and you will insist, at least in your presence, that everyone is treated with the same consideration and respect.
You are loyal, steadfast and determined. You go about your business in a manner that attracts little attention -- at least intentionally. The truth is that your methods will almost always attract attention, and you must get used to being in the spotlight.
Also born on this date are: Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi, religious and independence leader; Kelly Ripa, TV show host; Wallace Stevens, poet; Groucho Marx, actor and entertainer; Annie Leibovitz, photographer.
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.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A "shadow self" is likely to emerge today, and you may have trouble keeping things under full control as a result. A friend has your back.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A memory of long ago has you in an unusual mood -- and those who know you best will recognize it immediately. Don't hesitate to talk about it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are willing to do more for someone than most people, but you don't want to get a reputation as a pushover. You must set some limits.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's the little things that will attract your attention today. Study them closely to realize just how much they add to your daily life.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Take care that others aren't able to derail you simply by mounting a diversion. You must focus on the tasks assigned to you and get them done.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The territory you are now facing is chock-full of dangers, but most are not unfamiliar. Anything new can be handled eventually.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The benefits you enjoy from your own generosity may surprise you today. Keep doing what you know is right -- that's the way to win the day, surely!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may require a gentle nudge at just the right time today, and you know who should give it. Make a plan and stick to it, by all means.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're just beginning a period marked by creativity and daring. Take care that you get the lay of the land before starting anything big.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're doing many things the right way, of course, but there's something you haven't gotten the hang of, and that's what really matters today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be the worse for wear when all is said and done, but it's going to give you a good feeling of accomplishment to be in such a state.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You require just a bit more wiggle room today in order to complete a job left undone just a few days ago. The timing couldn't be better.
