Born today, you see things through a lens of your own devising, and you steer clear of any sort of mob mentality when looking at the world around you. You do not subscribe to anyone else's notions of what is "true," what is "right" or what is "possible." You assemble your notions of these malleable truths over time as a result of your firsthand experiences. Indeed, you put more value in lessons learned by doing than in anything you can learn by reading a book.
You are unusually creative, and you put more value on things that you make than on anything you can purchase or otherwise acquire from outside your own sphere of activity. What springs from your own mind and is fabricated as a result of your own talent and tenacity is likely to be highly valued by others as well.
Also born on this date are: Eleonora Duse, actress; Thomas Wolfe, novelist; Ming Cho Lee, theatrical scenic designer; Chubby Checker, rock singer and musician; Gwen Stefani, singer; Neve Campbell, actress.

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may require the help of a trusted ally today in order to catch up with what's been going on while you've been tending to other things.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A quick look behind the scenes will tell you all you need to know about what's been going on around you lately. It's time for some organizing!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- If it's change you're after, you're going to have to bring it about on your own while you are yet its sole proponent. Others join you soon.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are seeing things a certain way today, and if you want others to share your particular vision, you can show them the light by day's end.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Questions yield answers today, surely, but not at the pace you would prefer. You must be patient and let certain things develop organically.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You mustn't let any details escape your notice today. When it's time for you to swing into action, you can do so with great enthusiasm.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Taking orders will not likely be your strong suit today, but you shouldn't react to that by giving them. Listen to everyone's good ideas.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Someone else may take convincing before you receive permission to get started on something rather unusual. You can be quite persuasive!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A misinterpretation of a message received from a teammate is likely to cause a delay of sorts today -- but recovery can be quick.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Take a look around you today and you'll discover that there are a lot of new opportunities available for you to explore. Which is best?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have to bring everything to a stop for a time today in order to deal with someone else's problem. A big delay can be avoided.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Information you give another today may not be enough to solve a particularly tricky puzzle, but the last few pieces are made available.
