Born today, you can be quite surprising at times, especially when others have sized you up a certain way and you choose to behave in a manner that defies their assessment and proves that either they are no good at reading people or you are no good at being what others want you to be -- or both! You can go about your business in a quietly intense manner, without attracting a great deal of attention, and you can also cause quite a stir by speaking your mind and following your instincts rather than any established rules and regulations.
You can be quite emotional about the kinds of issues with which other people all over the world deal with on a daily basis, and you may dedicate a good portion of your life to shining a light on social and political issues you feel are most important. Might you go into politics? It's not likely; you'd rather influence things from without than within.
Also born on this date are: Buster Keaton, silent film star; Alicia Silverstone, actress; Susan Sarandon, actress; Charlton Heston, actor; Rutherford B. Hayes, U.S. president; Anne Rice, novelist; Rachael Leigh Cook, actress.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll have a choice to make when you are slighted by someone unintentionally. Your reaction may set the tone for the next few days.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What you experienced in recent days means more to you now that you understand it all better. Lessons learned can be taught to others today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You don't want to clash with someone over something that is merely a matter of taste, but you're likely in no mood to compromise today.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can do something to improve your immediate situation today, but you'll have to play a long game if you really want to feel successful.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Instructions you were given some time ago will serve you well today as you grapple with something similar to what you were dealing with then.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be compelled to do something you normally wouldn't, but in the end, no one is really going to notice that you've done something unusual.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Anything you do today that has real meaning and import is certainly worth doing and will be valued by others -- but you'll have to work hard!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can combine a good idea with a better idea and come up with the best possible idea under your current circumstances. Allies support you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not understand what is going on with you today, but you're not feeling quite right. Is it time for an expert opinion?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A search yields more than what you were looking for today -- but take care it's actually not too much for you to handle. Use caution.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- How you experience certain developments today will differ dramatically from how a friend does, and you can learn much as a result.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- That which has eluded you for quite some time is likely to become available quite by surprise -- but you'll be ready to take advantage of it.
