Born today, you are neither wholly traditional nor new and cutting edge, but rather you combine the best of what has gone before and that which is the product of your own vivid imagination. This allows you, for the most part, to remain well ahead of the competition in almost any race you may choose to run; you are able to embrace methods and strategies that have worked so well before, as well as those that are "spur of the moment" revelations suited to the particular task you are performing at the time.
You enjoy being pushed and challenged, but you also perhaps require more than the usual amount of rest, relaxation and nutrition. This is likely because when you are on the go, you are expending a great deal more energy than most other people.
Also born on this date are: Julia Roberts, actress; Edith Head, costume designer; Cleo Laine, actress; Jane Alexander, actress; Joaquin Phoenix, actor; Bill Gates, computer mogul; Jonas Salk, medical researcher; Dennis Franz, actor.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Urgency is the point today; you'll want to tend to business as quickly as possible -- while remaining safe and effective, surely.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Errors you correct cannot trip you up tomorrow -- so be sure to clear the path before you by fixing the few things that are broken today!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're not yet ready as the day opens to deal with someone's emotional stance; you must be ready by day's end, that much is certain.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A job well done wins you more than praise today -- but is what you get really enough to carry you through to next time? This is a real problem!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It may not be possible for you to engage in group activities right now, but you can surely maintain contact and share your own progress with others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The more you do today, the more you'll be asked to do tomorrow -- but that's exactly what you want, isn't it? Embrace those responsibilities!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You needn't be hasty today when formulating your judgment of someone's activities. You want to be circumspect and truthful.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're eager to catch up to someone who has shown you the way for quite some time. He or she is off on a new adventure you want to join.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The difference between right and wrong is made clear to you today when you are forced to guess about something that is not negotiable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not know what steps to take today, nor even what path is currently open to you, but these questions can be answered by day's end.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone is trying to put one over on you today, but you're not having any of it. This results in a conflict that can be quickly resolved.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You cannot count on someone who refuses to make his or her views known. It may be time to move on from this uncertain reality.
