When you don't need or want anything, what should you add? Nothing. Nothing is good. Nothing is potential and at the same time it's peace. Nothing is freedom. When you don't need or want anything, there's no such a thing as "better than nothing." Adding one thing would only make it worse than nothing. The sun/Pluto square favors contentedness.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 11). If your life were a town, this year would represent a population boom. You'll have more than the usual amount of company, especially while adventuring. Other highlights include: prime tickets to an event, lots of inside jokes that add richness to your group's story and a new skill to add to your bag. Taurus and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 6, 22, 12 and 40.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You might be surprised at what makes you super happy. That's why it's so important to try new things. Today, it's lucky to do this with someone you trust. Tackling fresh experiences together will create a tight bond.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Self-absorption is a state of fear. The trepidation may be mild in variety, a low current of worry that the world is not safe for us. Therefore it's best to tend to what is known. The self-absorbed will need your compassion today.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Do you walk around this fair thinking, "I've already ridden all the rides I want to?" You're missing something. Either you ruled it out as too scary or too mild when, in fact, there's a thrill inside that's just your size.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). This is the cosmic opportunity of the day: If you did it once, you can do it again. And if you haven't done it, you're due. Believe it, and make your move.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The highest form of flattery is imitation. Remember that time you followed someone just to make that person feel good about his or her choice? It was big-hearted, but you won't need to go that far today to make people feel good.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don't worry; you will be something better than you were before. And this mistake? It's not a setback. It's actually the mechanism through which improvement is made possible.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). To forward your personal journey, you'll have to ditch a lot of the bad, or rather, the less-than-optimum. And now you'll get even stricter with yourself, only because you want certain results that take sacrifice. You're ready.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your role requires you to live in your head more than you'd like to, reviewing possibilities, playing out different scenarios, testing things mentally. Take frequent breaks to stay fresh. This one is important.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). No one can do what you do. Stop being so hard on yourself. You're losing perspective on how special you are. To give yourself credit isn't narcissistic; in fact, it's the spiritual generosity that helps you be more kind today.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). To understand others takes emotional wit, social cleverness and a better than average awareness. To understand yourself takes these things plus courage and acceptance.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Do you ever wonder what sort of peace you'd experience through a day without talking? Maybe you can't go the whole day, but things will change with even a few quiet hours. Silence is a teacher.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). For primates, the standard is to reject or, more likely, attack anyone outside of the group. For humans, inclusion is often the very reason the group thrives. There's much to absorb from those who are different from us.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Voicing animation is one of her specialties and Joan Cusack will continue the trend with the upcoming "Toy Story 4." Cusack, who rose to fame alongside her brother John in such movies as "Sixteen Candles" and "High Fidelity," was born under the artistic Libran sun and has Mercury in this sign of bonding and partnership as well. Her empathetic Pisces moon is an ideal placement for actors.
