Born today, you are not usually the first one to reach your goals, whatever they may be, but it can safely be said that when you reach them you do so in a way that is likely to be long remembered -- and often imitated by others. Working fast is not all that important to you; being accurate, thorough and original are what really matter -- and when it comes to doing what comes naturally to you, you are seldom rivaled. You are resourceful and tenacious, and you will not quit a thing prematurely; once you have committed to it, you stick with it. The key moment, of course, is that in which you commit -- for this is done only after a great deal of thought and preparation.
Also born on this date are: Amy Irving, actress; Ryan Phillippe, actor; Chris Columbus, director; Arnold Palmer, golfer; Charles Kuralt, journalist.
You have the kind of personality that makes you a favorite among all sorts of people, and you have what it takes to mix well with those of conflicting lifestyles, ideologies and the like. You are tolerant and supportive of those who are unusual and even controversial.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll want to get back to the basics today, but it may be difficult to persuade an old friend that everything can be as it was.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Sharing knowledge with others is one of the best ways to open the door to something you don't yet know much about -- but should.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be feeling restless and unsettled today; this is more emotional than physical -- something is worrying you, and you don't yet know what.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Now is no time to put yourself, or anyone else, in danger. You'll want to follow a familiar path, and have safety measures in place.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can shake things up a bit and make decisions about what to do tomorrow based on what you see when the dust settles.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not have the "get up and go" feeling that you were hoping for today, but once you're in the thick of things you'll be revitalized.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll be watched by those who have the most invested in a current project; you're doing things the right way -- but perhaps not fast enough.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be the only one to realize just how important a factor safety really is today. You can keep others from endangering themselves.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll receive instruction from someone you have long admired. As a result, your confidence will increase greatly.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can put something behind you today that has been causing you sleepless nights. A friend is able to help you move forward.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll want to work closely with those who are on the same page -- but it may be difficult, at first, to determine who that is exactly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It will be lucky for you to have a certain few friends close at hand today; each can provide something currently in short supply.
