Born today, you are always, like so many other Libra natives, concerned with the justice of any given situation, and you cannot abide unfair treatment of any kind -- especially when it is bestowed upon someone who is unable to offer an effective defense. Indeed, you are likely to take on various causes throughout your lifetime because they are espoused by those who are in some way weak or defenseless; you insist upon doing all you can to level the playing field and make things as fair as possible for all concerned.
You are able to capitalize on all manner of chance events and encounters -- and nowhere is this more evident than in your financial affairs. Indeed, while you may make quite a great deal of money in your lifetime, it's not because you ever set out to do so. You have a knack for being at the right place at the right time, and for stumbling into one lucrative situation after another.
Also born on this date are: Angela Lansbury, actress; Oscar Wilde, playwright, poet, novelist; Noah Webster, lexicographer; Terri J. Vaughn, actress; Eugene O'Neill, playwright; Kim Wayans, actress; Suzanne Somers, actress.
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.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Pay more attention to what you are doing today and less to how you look doing it. You know what's most important, but you're distracting yourself!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- How you navigate certain situations makes all the difference today. It's especially important to know when to give another the right of way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Take care that your attempt at levity isn't misinterpreted by someone today. Not everything can be viewed by everyone as a game.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Things are going your way right now, and you want that to continue. Your best bet is to take the initiative and do more than what is assigned.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You've been doing all you can to navigate a difficult situation, and you realize what is necessary today can pay off tomorrow as well.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can get back on track today after a brief derailment that was no fault of your own. Don't waste time trying to fix blame; move on.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Others are hoping that you'll back away from a tricky situation, but you mustn't! Your involvement almost guarantees a positive outcome.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're going to have to face a few hard but simple truths today, whether or not you like it. This may be the start of an exciting new phase.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You mustn't allow anyone to devalue your point of view today. Make your statement and stand by it; a show of strength is required.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can stand up against all manner of challengers today, but one person in particular gives you cause for doubt, if only temporarily.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can see things more clearly today than most, but not everyone believes that gives you an advantage. You can prove them wrong, surely.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Take a look at what someone else is doing, then compare what you see to your own work. You see there are improvements to be made, yes?
