IF OCT. 7 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: TV personality Simon Cowell (1959) shares your birthday. You are strongly committed to whatever you believe and even if others oppose you, this will not dissuade you. In part, this is because you are a rebellious, independent thinker. You don’t mince words, you fight for what you believe is right, especially your ideals. This year a change might take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2004.
