Born today, you are most satisfied when you are doing things that resonate with others, and though you are able to navigate life's twists and turns very successfully on your own, the fact is that you want your accomplishments to mean something, to be important and to be remembered -- and you, too, of course! You have one or two remarkable talents that can -- and should -- propel you to the very pinnacle of success within your chosen field.
There are those who would call you "unique," but you don't necessarily agree with them, for you know just how much of yourself is dependent upon others -- and, in particular, those in the past who have forged the path you travel on. For though you are something of an original, you do owe much of who you are to those who have gone before.
Also born on this date are: Julia Roberts, actress; Edith Head, costume designer; Cleo Laine, actress; Jane Alexander, actress; Joaquin Phoenix, actor; Bill Gates, computer mogul; Jonas Salk, medical researcher; Dennis Franz, actor.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There are dangers to be avoided today, and you know vaguely what they may be and when they may endanger you the most. Be ready to act!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You mustn't let any insecurity hold you back today. Focus on what you want, and let that lead you down whatever path lies ahead.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You don't have to do things in a routine way today; why not "dress them up" somehow and have a little more fun than usual? Use your imagination!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to deal with more than one interruption today before you're able to reach your stride. It's smooth sailing come evening hours.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Daytime efforts may be rather ordinary today, as expected, but twilight brings a change of rhythm that can raise the bar in an unexpected way.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have the chance to do what you do best today under the watchful eye of someone who can possibly do you a good turn as a result.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Opportunity knocks today -- not once, not twice, but possibly three or four times. This doesn't mean, however, that you can ever ignore it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You shouldn't have to stoop to anyone else's level today, even as you deal with someone's unruly attitude. You can stay above the fray.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're after something that may also be of value to someone else, and a competition may heat up today as a result. Stay focused!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Good news comes your way today, and after you have put it to good use, you can pass your own good news along to someone who's waiting for it.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You know who's looking over your shoulder, and you know why. What you don't know is when it will end. Will your usual patience be enough?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You mustn't worry that what you do or say will be taken the wrong way today; those who really count are communicating on your wavelength.
