Born today, you are determined to make your mark, even if it means doing things in unusual, unorthodox or even unacceptable ways. The fact of the matter, of course, is that if you do meet with the kind of success that the stars have all but decreed for you, the things you do will not remain uncommon or illicit, for you will bring them into the light and they will eventually be accepted as "mainstream."
Though it's likely that you will, at some point in your life, be in the public eye, you will still go about your business in a genuine, low-key manner that allows you to weather all manner of storms. You aren't one to make a great fuss about things; you leave that to others -- and then, when you choose, you try to clean up after them!
Also born on this date are: Margaret Thatcher, British prime minister; Kate Walsh, actress; Paul Simon, singer, songwriter, musician; Nancy Kerrigan, Olympic figure skater; Eddie Mathews, baseball player; Tisha Campbell-Martin, 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.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A look back reveals something that has been hidden for quite some time, and your efforts to bring it into the present yield much today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The difference between "off" and "on" may be rather indistinct to you for a time today, but you'll get the hang of things quickly later on.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A cryptic message has you wondering what's going on today beneath the surface. You'll have time to take a close look -- if you dare.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not respect someone's recent decision, but that's not likely to change how you feel overall about them -- and you must make that clear.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's a very good day to showcase a certain skill -- and you know exactly when it will be best to do this as well. Don't be premature!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- This is a good day to let another know that you're more than willing to let bygones be bygones. A grudge yields nothing; look to the future.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- From where you are standing today, different things are likely to look very similar to each other, and only a close look reveals the differences.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Progress is made today in a manner that takes some getting used to, but whether it's the pace or the substance of the work, you'll do fine!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may think that the day promises little of interest, but nothing could be further from the truth. You have to know where to look!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're not likely to get information from other people today, so you must be willing to do some digging. Some things are close to the surface.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your best bet today is to let other people come to you, rather than going to them and announcing your intentions. Timing is everything -- almost.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your approach isn't likely to be appreciated by everyone, but those who know what you're getting at will surely be on board. Continue!
