Born today, you are one of the most imaginative individuals born under a sign that has given the world so many imaginative individuals! What sets you apart, however, is your ability to combine fact and fancy, hard work and inspiration, and the new and the traditional in ways that are themselves new and untried. This in itself is not unique, but there's something about you, something indefinable and even exotic, that does make you and what you do somehow special to those who wish to look closely at the work you leave behind.
You often wonder if you are being interpreted in the right way and if other people really understand what it is you are trying to accomplish whenever you do something you are compelled to do. Because it is likely different from the norm, or so utterly unexpected, that others will judge you and your work harshly or incorrectly -- and you're not one to brook criticism all that well!
Also born on this date are: Kim Kardashian, entrepreneur; Carrie Fisher, actress; Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister; Judge Judy Sheindlin, TV judge; Dizzy Gillespie, musician; Alfred Nobel, inventor; Samuel Taylor Coleridge, poet.
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.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can keep things calm and harmonious today -- but take care that you don't get so laid-back that you actually get in the way of progress!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're not expecting to discover anything new today -- which is why you will be so surprised to do so! This novelty can prove valuable.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- They say time heals all wounds, but you may be wondering when your personal injury will stop hurting. A new friend gets in touch.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- This is a good time to do that one thing that you've been avoiding for so long. Today, forgiveness is much easier to get than permission!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Now is not the time to apologize for something you are certain was the correct thing to do. Let a rival say or do what you should not.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll benefit from a therapeutic approach to a certain stubborn issue. Indeed, you're likely to solve more than one problem.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can expect to be distracted at times today, so you'll want to shore up your own efforts when you are able. Leave little to chance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- An early accomplishment pushes your agenda forward today. Later on, you can afford to slow things down in order to take a good look around.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may see or hear something quite unusual today that has you rethinking your stance on a certain issue. Be sure all news is accurate.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You will want to use much of this day to prepare for tomorrow -- though at least one immediate personal issue will demand careful attention.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You don't want to add your voice to the chorus of complaints being heard on high today. Sit this one out, and wait to see what happens.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll be more interested in the journey you take today than in the destination you reach. Now is the time to consider a certain change.
