Born today, you do not always approach every situation from the most advantageous position, probably because you are quite protective of your beliefs and will resist change with every fiber of your being -- and some situations will certainly challenge those beliefs and suggest that such change is necessary! Still, you are strong and confident and never one to back away from any sort of contest once you have skin in the game; you are perhaps the most competitive of individuals born under your sign.
One of your greatest fears is that you will prove to be nothing more than a "flash in the pan," and much of your life's work will be dedicated to securing a lasting legacy.
Also born on this date are: George Westinghouse, engineer and manufacturer; Jenny Lind, singer; Helen Wills Moody, tennis player; Carole Lombard, actress; Janet Gaynor, actress; Britt Ekland, actress.
WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You should enjoy moving along at a swift pace throughout much of the day. You'll slow down during evening hours -- because you want to.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your actions may be misinterpreted by some today, but that's no reason to rethink your central purpose. Stick to the plan.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be disappointed in yourself today after getting less than expected for a job you thought was well done -- but you may not be at fault!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll have reason to give yourself a pat on the back when all is said and done today, despite the criticism you receive from some doubters.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Live a little today! You can afford to take a risk, so long as a certain friend is by your side. What was impossible for one is fun for two!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have tempted someone just a little too much, and today the results of such actions will become crystal clear very quickly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A shock makes its way to you today, but by the time you're able to react, it will have lost much of its punch. You know what's going on.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Give yourself more time today to do routine things. You won't be quite as flexible or maneuverable as you may be used to, so be ready.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You aren't likely to enjoy the usual number of choices today, though that which is available likely suits you to a T.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don't give anyone else a hard time today without being perfectly confident that you know what you're talking about. A friend asks for a favor.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may get a late start today, but better late than never. Once you hit your stride, you'll be able to satisfy almost all expectations.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A look back over recent endeavors clearly shows you just where you were at your best and where you erred. A lesson is learned!
