Born today, you enjoy making order out of chaos and directing your talents toward that which seems out of place and turning it into something that is very much at home. This urge to make disparate things appear as one is perhaps your single most important driving force, and it will figure prominently in all you do both personally and professionally. You have a keen eye and a comprehending brain; you know what you are looking at, and you know what needs to be done to correct it, align it and improve it.
You work hard, and you often play even harder -- and when it comes to your competitive nature, you are not likely to be equaled by anyone born under your sign. Though you do insist upon fair play from everyone engaged in any contest, you will nevertheless strive to win -- and though you can be a graceful loser, you do not enjoy losing one bit!
Also born on this date are: Eleonora Duse, actress; Thomas Wolfe, novelist; Ming Cho Lee, theatrical scenic designer; Chubby Checker, musician; Gwen Stefani, singer; Neve Campbell, actress.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Comparing the new and the old will leave you dissatisfied somehow. Instead, why not take the best from both and combine them in your own way?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The difference between "seeming" and "being" will prove quite dramatic today, as you address a situation that may soon boil over.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You must think long and hard about what you have done in the past in order to come up with a plan that others will find effective right now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Make sure you say just what you mean today when you are asked to share your thoughts with others. You can't afford misinterpretation.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Doing something "right" is a matter of instinct today; the more you trust yourself, the more you will find yourself fulfilling expectations.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You will come quite close to uncovering information that you've been seeking for a long time -- but that may not be enough for you right now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What happens when you're not paying attention will affect you for days to come. Be sure that you're exerting a controlling influence today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may find yourself on the front lines of a cause that you've only recently adopted as your own. Address your learning curve.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can come through for another today just as he or she recently did the same for you. Why not consider collaborating more closely?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An early start can surely leave you with more time later on to devote to personal matters. You cannot ignore a certain situation!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may feel as though you're the only one to address certain recent developments -- but others are ready to join you in your current efforts.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can prove much more helpful than originally anticipated -- and all because you've decided to do what comes naturally. Keep it up!
