Born today, you are never likely to travel solo through life, whether personally or professionally, for you are always likely to pull into your orbit those who share your skills, aspirations and overall vision of the world as it could be -- and so you will naturally choose to associate with these people as much as possible, working and playing with them on a daily basis. This doesn't mean that you will accomplish little or nothing on your own!
The answers to questions are often provided by the circumstances in which you find yourself -- and when they are not, you must guard against forcing things to happen in a way that is unnatural or inorganic. You must always remember that you can be responsible for only so much; there are times when you are at the mercy of things beyond your immediate influence.
Also born on this date are: Arthur Miller, playwright; Mae Jemison, astronaut; Evel Knievel, daredevil; Rita Hayworth, actress; Cameron Mackintosh, musical theater producer; Jimmy Breslin, journalist and writer; Jean Arthur, actress; Margot Kidder, actress; Ziggy Marley, musician.
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.
MONDAY, OCTOBER 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have a better understanding of a sensitive issue than most others who are just as involved as you are. You'll be calling the shots.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You shouldn't have to add to your schedule today in order to keep busy; there's enough that requires immediate and complete involvement.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have trouble getting someone to go all in with you today. It may be that your explanation didn't inspire confidence -- which is essential.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can remain positive today despite the twists and turns you're sure to face. What happens late in the day teaches you a key lesson.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can make that "difficult" decision with relative ease today -- thanks to someone who has made sure that all the pieces are finally in place.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you do early in the day is likely to have a greater impact than anything you take on later -- but you mustn't let your enthusiasm wane.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to offer up one or two excuses today in order to be forgiven for a minor mistake, but don't think you're out of the woods yet!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The day begins quite smoothly, and yet later on you may face a situation or two that requires you to navigate a rough and circuitous road.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- If you take your situation to someone in the know, you may have a solution before day's end. This is something that won't wait.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You needn't pay any attention to those whose methods are different from your own. Now is the time to let your confidence shine.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You should be able to meet all commitments and fulfill all promises today -- though one may, for a brief moment, give you pause.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have something important to say to a friend or loved one today, but something's holding you back. Timing is the issue.
