Born today, you are an independent thinker, never one to conform to the ideas promoted by the majority simply because it is the majority, and always the kind to pursue even the most difficult or distant of goals because your instincts tell you to do so. When it comes to authority, you listen only to yourself, and when your instincts, needs and desires differ from what established authority tells you is most important, you will go your own way -- even to the point of making life difficult for yourself for a while.
You seem to know what makes other people tick, but unlike some who might exploit this to maximize their advantage over people, you only use it to enable yourself to navigate relationships with greater ease and to promote harmony between yourself and others.
Also born on this date are: Mohandas Gandhi, religious leader and social activist; Kelly Ripa, TV show host; Wallace Stevens, poet; Groucho Marx, actor and entertainer; Annie Leibovitz, photographer.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It's a good day to rethink your plans for the coming days or weeks. The longer you can see into the future, the greater your odds.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your energy and drive are on the rise at this time, and you can do much to further a certain project that is just about to get off the ground.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll have to keep a great many things in your head today, possibly without taking any notes, in order to succeed at a certain tricky endeavor.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your creative energy will allow you to prevail in a situation that will likely prove too much for most others, though a rival may challenge you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don't let yourself be ruled by your emotions today. Focus on those things that enable you to stay rational, especially when others cannot be.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll feel pride at what someone else is able to do today, as you know that you had something to do with it, at least in the beginning.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A reunion of sorts gives you the strength you need to rethink a certain situation and, if necessary, change your mind about a key element.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are feeling quite optimistic about something that has given you pause in the recent past. It's a good day to move forward quickly.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Information you've been waiting for comes your way today, but not directly -- and not from the expected source. You can put it to use!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The good work you do in one location can be transferred to another as necessary today, without very little trouble or loss of momentum.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not be sure which of many options you should try first today, but does it really matter? They can all lead you to the same place.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can do more than one thing at a time today and increase your chances of success. Multitasking like this doesn't always come easily to you.
