Born today, you know how to put two and two together and come up with almost any sum you choose, and while there are those who may consider this a talent that can only lead to chaos, the fact of the matter is that you use it exclusively for good, presenting again and again new ideas -- new "sums," if you will -- that take the debate to a new level and inspire the people around you to do great things, at least within the scopes of their own lives.
You are perhaps smarter than most, and your instincts are keen, but this combination doesn't always serve you well when it comes to personal relationships. Indeed, your personal behavior may at times lead those involved with you to wonder what has happened to your smarts and those gut feelings that so often lead you in the right direction.
Also born on this date are: Elie Wiesel, writer; Truman Capote, novelist; Deborah Kerr, actress; Johnny Mathis, singer; Jenna Elfman, actress; Lacey Chabert, actress.

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Take care that you don't act upon the first idea that comes into your head today. You'll want to explore options and let it ripen a bit.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Expertise is worth valuing today, especially when it's someone else's that is actually serving you better than your own. Don't get competitive.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- At the end of the day, no one is likely to remember the scuffle that may have happened when you came in contact with a rival quite by surprise.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- That which has the greatest significance for you today isn't likely to matter much to anyone else -- except that certain special someone.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You know just how important it is to acknowledge the little things, especially when they are provided by others who have pledged to help you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- How you work with others may be on full display today, and this can serve you quite well as you get ready to ask for a job -- or a promotion.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Give somebody else a little of what you most value today and you'll be in a fine position to ask for what you need when the time comes.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're likely to receive news today that makes it impossible to make any other but the right decision. Those around will surely root for you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You understand where someone is coming from, surely, but that doesn't mean that your thinking about a certain issue has to be in sync.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have the feeling that it's time to go for broke, and the opportunity to reach for what you want has perhaps never been better.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- What others cannot do, you should be able to -- but perhaps your idea of common sense is holding you back. It is, in fact, neither!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's certainly time for you to pull your weight, and you may have to pull someone else's as well, so be ready for some extra effort.
