Born today, you possess one trait that immediately identifies you as a Libra native, and yet among all Libra natives, you embody this more than anyone else -- and that is your almost fanatical desire for parity in all things. No matter what, you want things to be fair for all people, in all situations -- and when you find that they are not you will apply yourself to a study of the situation so that you can eventually identify the cause of the central disparity at work and strive to correct it.
You don't always have to be front and center, directing the energies of others or applying a direct influence on the course of events in your daily life. As long as you are making some kind of impact, you can be perfectly happy working in the background -- and often this allows you to do more than you would be able to if you were in the spotlight!
Also born on this date are: Friedrich Nietzsche, philosopher and writer; Virgil, ancient Roman poet; P.G. Wodehouse, writer and humorist; Ncuti Gatwa, actor; Penny Marshall, actor and director; Brennan Mejia, actor.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You've been long tempted by someone's occupation, and though you may not want to make a career change, you can experiment freely today.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may find yourself with more time on your hands than expected today, and you'll want to have a plan for how to use it. Don't dilly-dally.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A certain choice is yours to make today that will affect others as well as yourself. Never fear -- those involved know the burden you bear.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not have the opportunity to finish what you start today, but you can surely get much of the work done before the dinner bell.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You mustn't let another's inexperience keep you from doing what you know how to do today. It may be that you have to go it alone for a time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A chorus of "no" is likely to fade today, and you'll be left with nothing but your own solo "yes" to respond to -- and much can happen as a result.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may encounter a wolf in sheep's clothing today, but quick thinking on your part allows you to circumvent any danger -- and save others, too.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The minute you think you've done enough, it will become apparent that you've not done enough. The day may be long, but it can be rewarding.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You mustn't shirk your responsibilities today. Do what you are told and what you have promised and, by all means, don't back out entirely.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to continue working hard today while someone close to you sets it all aside and enjoys some downtime. Don't be jealous!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Now is the time for you, and all those like you, to do what you have promised. It may fall to you to rally others around a common banner.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You get a great deal of benefit from watching the world go by today -- but make no mistake, your turn will come, and you'll have to get busy!
