Born today, you are always thinking, thinking, thinking and coming up with one unusual idea after another -- and sometimes your ideas add up, in the opinion of others, to something controversial or even dangerous. You have such power over language that you are able to express virtually anything in any way you like -- and you can adopt almost any point of view and argue any side of an issue because your expressive powers are so keen. Words and language combined will surely be your ticket to greatness.
Like many Libra natives, you have a keen sense of humor, but your ability to laugh stops with you. You are simply incapable of laughing at yourself, even when you are the butt of other people's jokes. Indeed, that is the point! You cannot abide any kind of attention other than praise -- even when that attention is, as they say, "All in fun."
Also born on this date are: Friedrich Nietzsche, philosopher and writer; Virgil, ancient Roman poet; P.G. Wodehouse, writer and humorist; Ncuti Gatwa, actor; Penny Marshall, actor and director; Brennan Mejia, actor.
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.
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Think twice before doing what comes most naturally today, as someone isn't likely to think it's appropriate. Try to find a balance.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may find yourself on the wrong side of a major decision today -- and you'll have no one to blame but yourself. Did you do your homework?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're in a much better position to see what lies just ahead than almost anyone else in your circle. Be sure to warn everyone in time!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will want to make sure that you are ready to receive what someone is offering. This involves more than just your point of view.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must be sure that you've prepared for all eventualities today. Fail to acknowledge a single possibility -- and that's the one that will cost you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You should be able to fulfill a loved one's every expectation today, and even go a little further, perhaps. The result will please you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're in no mood for a fight, though you may be drawn into one if you're not careful to remain firmly neutral -- no matter what is said.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can rise above any sort of conflict today and deal only with those who are of like minds. You can come up with a big plan in no time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's never too late to do the right thing, and you may realize that you've waited long enough. Get in touch with all concerned parties.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Say what you have to say, and move on. You have little time to spend on preludes and epilogues. A businesslike approach is best.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Get in touch with all those who have a vested interest in what you are doing these days, because a major change is about to take place.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Someone reaches out to you today -- but is it for the right reason? Be careful that you don't think too much before offering assistance.
