Born today, you are the kind to follow a straight path from wherever you are to wherever you want to be -- both literally and figuratively. From a very early age you will have developed a keen sense of destiny -- built of your desire to achieve certain goals and your almost instinctive awareness that those goals can be reached in certain ways. You are able to sense what is over the next hill, around the next curve and beyond the horizon, and you never flinch when you see it ahead of you. You take challenges of all kinds as a matter of course; you will not alter your course simply because things get difficult.
You will enjoy your eventual success as much as the next person, but it is not material gain that you are really after; as for nearly all Virgo natives, there must be a kind of spiritual component to the prize for it to bring you true contentment.
Also born on this date are: Faith Ford, actress; Margaret Sanger, birth control crusader; Zoe Caldwell, actress; Sam Neill, actor; Clayton Moore, actor; Nicol Williamson, actor; Ivan Pavlov, physiologist.
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.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 15
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don't just go through the motions today; if you want to do something the right way, start at the beginning and work through all the steps.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may discover that you can do very well what someone -- and even yourself -- thought perhaps was over your head in some way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's a good time to get in touch with someone who figured prominently in your professional development. A word of thanks is in order.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You know what's best for you, and how best to acquire it -- but right now, it would be wise for you to try satisfying another's desires.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to put your own needs on hold briefly as you come to the rescue of someone who finds him or herself in an impossible situation.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Repetition will surely enable you to remember -- and even master -- the most complicated of tasks today. Don't become impatient.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may think that you're doing the best thing you can do to improve yourself at this time, but an expert has some sound advice for you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may wake with the feeling that you have fallen behind somehow, but with a little more effort you can surely catch up.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The best way for you to demonstrate your prowess is to get busy doing what you do best. Don't just talk, as that impresses few.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have a clever new way of doing something that others would call routine -- but there's nothing routine about your methods right now!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's best to keep your opinions to yourself today until you are asked to share them -- and when you are, honesty is the best policy.
