Born today, you do not like to be alone, and yet the stars have dictated that you may have to endure solitude more than almost anyone else born under your sign. But with the sacrifice of human companionship will come achievement, for you are able to do more with your "alone time" than most others, and the results of your efforts are sure to win you high praise, a solid reputation as one who gets things done and lasting rewards that will support you for quite some time.
You have a few unusual talents and aptitudes, and it's likely that you will make a name for yourself by doing that which others either choose not to do or do not know needs to be done! You have many diverse interests, and you're likely to be pulled in many directions as you seek your next great project. But choose one you must -- and will.
Also born on this date are: Buster Keaton, silent film star; Alicia Silverstone, actress; Susan Sarandon, actress; Charlton Heston, actor; Rutherford B. Hayes, U.S. president; Anne Rice, novelist; Rachael Leigh Cook, actress.
MONDAY, OCTOBER 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have been distracted for a time, but today you'll be able to settle back into a highly productive pattern of behavior.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You know what has to be done today, and even though you're not technically in charge, you can influence events in a positive fashion.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The time has come for you to speak out about an injustice that you can no longer ignore. Others will almost surely jump on the bandwagon.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have been ignoring the warnings of others perhaps, but when your gut tells you that you're heading down the wrong path, you must listen!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can do something entirely original today and win a great deal of attention and praise. You may wonder if material rewards will follow.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You will have a chance to steer clear of a threat that lies directly ahead of you -- but only one chance. Squander it and you're on your own.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You mustn't risk exposure today, so be sure to conceal those things that you feel are nobody's business. An argument may ensue, but so what?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Putting another's needs before your own may set you back a bit, but that's nothing compared to the alternative. You're doing the right thing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're likely to win rave reviews today, but you mustn't assign them more importance than they have. Be realistic!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A good word from another can surely open doors for you, but it's not going to happen overnight. Today you must be satisfied with what you have.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may recognize symptoms of boredom -- and if so, you have little time to react productively. Today's events can mean a great deal.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be threatened by someone today who doesn't realize what you're capable of doing in return. Your response must be proportional.
