BIRTHDAY GAL: Actress Piper Perabo was born in Dallas, Texas on this day in 1976. This birthday gal plays the Golden Globe nominated role of Annie Walker on the series "Covert Affairs." She's also appeared on the big screen in movies such as "Beverly Hills Chihuahua," "The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle" and "Coyote Ugly."
ARIES (March 21-April 19): To everything there is a season. Romantic relationships could end up somewhat out of kilter tonight. Be content to play the gracious host to costumed visitors or snuggle up in front of the TV with leftover treats.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Black cats become you. Seasonal activities might give you an opportunity to show off your good taste by wearing your party duds or a costume. Invite others to join into the spirit of fun tonight.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You can't get in too far over your head just by bobbing for apples. Simple pastimes can't threaten your security, so don't be afraid to accept an invitation or to spend time with a new admirer.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Turn to your favorite channel. Halloween celebrations could provide a good excuse for home-based activities and surprise visits from friends or neighbors. Work all day, then rest all evening.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You might imagine the worst-case scenario when you sense things that go bump in the night. Accentuate the positive and don't be scared off by a few impulsive actions on the part of a special someone.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don't be spooked. It is always smart to be wary of taking candy from strangers, but don't go to extremes and throw everything in the Dumpster. Attend to essential business with due diligence.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Wear a costume, but remember it is just an act. Too many tricks or simple evasiveness could prevent you from getting your treat. Small disagreements and groundless suspicions can spoil trust.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Pull a rabbit out of your hat. While other people are pulling their hair out you can pull out a "hare" of your own and solve a problem. Put your ingenuity to work to make wise decisions and smart moves.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Volunteer either your time or money. Halloween might offer an ideal excuse to make a public appearance at your church, school, community center, or participate in neighborhood festivities.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Nitpick through the candy dish - not through someone's well-intentioned ideas. Spend your time making plans for the future. Trust in your power to see clearly ahead and consider your steps carefully.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Whip that whim. Significant others may react in unexpected ways if you pay too much attention to good-looking Halloween witches or vampires. Avoid the temptation to indulge in expensive pleasures.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Be a Good Samaritan and share the goodies with others. Delightful tricks and delicious treats might come your way, but you must pay it forward. Don't be greedy and eat all the Halloween candy yourself.
IF OCTOBER 31 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Throw off the shackles and fly free as a bird. Your particular claim to fame might earn you extra respect or recognition between now and the beginning of January. You can make important changes for the better - especially next month when a one-of-a-kind opportunity could show up on your doorstep. Work hard from January through the spring, as those in authority could look on your persistence with awe. In March and April, your charm and popularity are at their zenith, so it is a good time to make a career move; a loved one may be ready for commitment or singles may meet the person of their dreams.
