IF OCT. 2 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Activist/philosopher/lawyer Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) shares your birthday. You’re social, witty and charming. Although you are candid and frank — telling it like it is — your grace and charm catch others off guard. They’re slow to perceive how serious you are about your values. This year something you have been involved with for nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new to enter your world.
