BIRTHDAY GUY: Actor Efren Ramirez was born in Los Angeles, Calif., on this date in 1973. This birthday guy rose to fame portraying Pedro Sanchez in the 2004 comedy hit "Napoleon Dynamite," and would reprise the role in the mercifully short-lived 2012 animated series of the same name. He played a recurring role on "Eastbound and Down" and has appeared on episodes of "Scrubs," "ER" and "Boston Public."
ARIES (March 21-April 19): You may be called upon to perform a juggling act. One-on-one situations might emphasize the different hats you must wear and the numerous tasks you must manage. Cope with a three-ring circus with style.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put on your captain's hat and navigate through a sea of information. Where finances are concerned, you could be blind to drawbacks or only see what you want to see. Watch which way the wind is blowing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can't hit two targets with one arrow. Don't spread yourself too thin or switch horses in midstream. Be flexible enough to listen, but hard-headed enough to make your own decisions based on the information.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Employ the skill set needed to handle uncontrollable changes with aplomb. Try boning up on the latest techniques or methods. Contact friends who can offer support, enlightenment or encouragement.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Fly by the seat of your pants. You're in your comfort zone when given a chance to put unique ideas into motion. You'll be most successful by ignoring the status quo and experimenting with the untried or untested.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Add to your credentials. You'll be more effective if you let people know about your talents and show that you're willing to gain experience. Explore options, but don't make an irrevocable financial decision.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Capitalize on a sudden shift to superstar status. Enjoy a positive "buzz," but don't be tempted to make irrevocable changes based on fleeting popularity. Your reputation gets a shot in the arm from an unknown source.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Roller coasters can be thrilling or terrifying. Much might depend upon whether you're on the receiving end of a dramatic situation or someone else's irrational unpredictability, or if you're the one dishing it out.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be open to participating in discussions or brainstorming sessions. Write down your ideas for further scrutiny. Once you've visualized what you want to accomplish, it is possible to achieve it.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It might be rebellion against cultural expectations that causes you to make an unwise or impetuous choice. You may refuse to repeat tried-and-true patterns or to follow others along a well-worn and familiar rut.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A significant other might surprise you by trying something out of character or having a sudden change of plans. Play the part of the entrepreneur rather than remaining stagnant as a traditionalist. Go with the flow.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Shake, rattle and roll. Shake off unnecessary limitations and bypass obstacles by getting right to the point and using your dynamic leadership skills. People tend to see you as trustworthy and will listen to your opinion.
IF OCTOBER 2 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Your path ahead may be blissful if you remain realistic and keep your feet planted firmly on the ground. During the upcoming six weeks, a romantic encounter or a business offer could be compelling, but committing to either one might create turbulence in your life. Let time pass and be sure you can trust your feelings. In December, those who are not good for you will have a tough time getting close, so use that as a measuring stick to gauge how important a new person or idea should be. Mr. or Ms. Right might knock on your door in December, but if you're already in a committed relationship this is a good time to interview for a new job or make an important change in your life.
