Born today, you are far more sensitive to the ups and downs, ins and outs, and general waxings and wanings of human interaction than a great many other people, and you can use that sensitivity to propel yourself through life and, at will, up the ladder of success to the pinnacle of whatever career you choose. The only problem, of course, is that very sensitivity, for in you it fosters a kind of care for others that drives you to do more for the people around you than you do for yourself.
This doesn't mean you cannot or will not excel; on the contrary, you certainly can -- and will if you simply pursue the kinds of things that involve a sensitivity toward others and a knowledge of human interaction -- which you certainly have. For you, honesty is truly the best policy in all things -- though there are times in which you will invite hardship as a result.
Also born on this date are: Jimmy Carter, U.S. president; Vladimir Horowitz, pianist; Julie Andrews, singer and actress; Walter Matthau, actor; Jurnee Smollett-Bell, actress; Randy Quaid, actor; Zach Galifianakis, comedian and actor.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll be able to assume greater responsibility today -- if you want to. You can leave certain things to someone else.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The goals you have set for yourself will hang before you today as a kind of temptation. It's a good day to reaffirm your commitment.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Something that's been bringing you down recently may well make much more sense today after you talk to one who is likely responsible.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What begins rather slowly today is likely to pick up very quickly, and you must guard against losing ground against a rival who is ready.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You see what lies before you with remarkable clarity at this time, and there's very little reason for you not to claim all that you can.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Though it's almost certain to be offered, you may not be in a position to accept help today. A past success gives you vital information.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You cannot depend on anyone else to give you more time than you already have to tend to a certain key issue today. Efficiency is key.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are likely to receive information from a very unusual source today, but after you look at it from all angles, it's almost sure to check out.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You can give no one a guarantee today, nor can you receive one from anyone else; if you have faith in your abilities, all will be well.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You cannot force your agenda on anyone else today. Go about your business on your own thing if you must, with care.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone who knows what you're about is likely to step in and save you from those who do not. This is important for your peace of mind.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be pushed into a corner today, and if so, you'll almost certainly have to make an exception to one of your own rules in response.
