Born today, you are one of the most solid, stalwart and faithful individuals born under your sign. You are hardworking and quick to dedicate yourself to a worthy cause -- to which you will always apply your best efforts in order to guarantee success. You are confident in your abilities, but most especially in your ability to inspire confidence in others, and though you usually lead by example, you are also quite good at delivering encouraging words at just the right moments and to just the right people.
You recognize that it's not always a good idea to speak your mind, but when you do, you speak the truth -- period. You are not one to hide the truth, or disguise it, or try to dress it up in some way that makes it sound more palatable than it really is. The truth is the truth, and that's your stock in trade. You know that no matter what, eventually, come what may, the truth will be out!

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Showering another with all that is desired may be your intent, but the result isn't likely to be as favorable as you had hoped. Back off some.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your generosity will pay off handsomely today -- but only if you're sharing something of value. Others will see through any deception.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may find yourself wishing for something that is long gone, but that's just nostalgia playing with you. Cast your eyes forward today.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're not likely to find another team to join, so you must be willing to put up with things as they are or go it alone. The choice is yours.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Good humor keeps you from taking things too seriously today, but it won't happen by accident. Be sure to remind yourself of this all day long.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're not at the end just yet, but you may be able to stop and take a look back at where you've been. This allows you to adjust expectations.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may feel stuck doing work in an unfamiliar environment, but the fact is that you can make this new situation work very well for you today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're almost sure to encounter those today who do not share your overall outlook, but resulting discussion may alter your views.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A small sacrifice on your part early in the day will allow you to reap a much larger reward than usual later on. This may take daring.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone's influence may pull you away from something for which you have felt real affinity -- but today's a good day for exploration.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Though you may not be able to think of certain things today in terms of stability and permanence, what you're able to do scores many points.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be adversely affected by someone who is more "in your space" today than you would like. Only a direct approach can fix this.
