Born today, you are one of the most creative individuals born under your sign, and you let your creativity run wild far more than most. Indeed, this is no doubt why you are likely to earn a reputation as one who is inconsistent, mercurial and impossible to second-guess -- all of which is true, and all of which you have no doubt learned to use to your advantage. You are quite capable of taking the most far-fetched idea and turning it into something tangible -- and you have been known to make the impossible possible.
You are best, certainly, when you are working within your wheelhouse doing those things that come naturally. This is true in your personal relationships as well as your work, and for this reason you cannot always expect to enjoy longevity in your love life. Passion, yes, but stability and longevity, no -- though it's certainly not impossible!
Also born on this date are: Winona Ryder, actress; Finola Hughes, actress; Fanny Brice, comedienne; Melba Moore, singer; Kate Jackson, actress; Richard Dreyfuss, actor; Bill Mauldin, political and military cartoonist.
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It may take you longer than usual today to do the right thing. Once this episode is behind you, study it for the lessons it offers.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're eager for others to be impressed by your efforts, but it's really the results that matter most at this time. A friend has a message.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You mustn't overcomplicate matters today. Keep things simple and straightforward, and ensure that others understand the statement you're making.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Check in with those who have been there before you, and you'll realize that all is as it should be -- or can be with one very quick adjustment.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to travel farther -- and for a longer time -- than you had expected today. Listen to the warnings you give yourself late in the day.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Once you claim credit for something, you must be willing to go the distance. Be sure, therefore, that it's something you really did!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Pretense of any kind can be quite dangerous to you today. You will want to deal in the truth all day long, whether or not it's uncomfortable.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You must take certain precautions today -- but they are not unfamiliar to you, of course. What you know is augmented by what you learn.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The simplest approach is likely the best today, though it may take you a while to realize which is and which really isn't the "simplest."
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Just because you mustn't break the rules doesn't mean you cannot bend them just a little today to make them work in your favor. Experiment.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're waiting for news that someone has been charged with reporting. What you hear surprises you -- but your response is immediate.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have what it takes to reach your goals today, but take care that you don't overlook a personal need in favor of professional progress.
