Born today, you don't let the expectations and approvals of others affect you in any real way, and you are certainly not going to be held back by anyone who says you cannot do this, that or the other thing -- regardless of the reason! Even when quite young, your reaction to any sort of imposed rules, restrictions or limitations was to bristle and fight back as much as possible to ensure your life was shaped by your will alone, and not by anyone else's.
Also born on this date are: Luciano Pavarotti, operatic tenor; Aleister Crowley, magician, spiritualist and writer; Ronalda Douglas, actress; Tyler Blackburn, actor; Marcus T. Paulk, actor.
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll breathe a sigh of relief at some point today when someone in charge announces, "So far, so good!" This challenge isn't over, however.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may wish you had things lined up a certain way today, but the fact that they're not will bring out your best on many occasions.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're eager to get things going today, but you may have to wait longer still because of someone's insistence that you review the preliminaries.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You risk getting tangled in details today, so your best bet is to focus on the big picture while you instruct others in their individual jobs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Technology is your friend, surely, but there is still only so much you can do today without resorting to some older, traditional tactics.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The louder one shouts, the more likely it is that he or she will be ignored. Today requires a calm, quiet, measured approach that is perfect for you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your willingness to be in the spotlight will enable you to claim a certain advantage over others today -- most especially at the workplace.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A plan made some time ago suddenly becomes more pertinent and timely than expected today, as a certain development forces your hand.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Give yourself more time today to do things that seem routine, for you are likely to face an unforeseen -- and possibly dangerous -- obstacle.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- That which you know best may seem confusing today, while that which has always been up in the air becomes much more certain almost instantly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your expertise is likely to be challenged today, but you'll acquit yourself, as you rely on tactics that have served you well in the past.
