Born today, you are a disciplined and hard-working individual, and you will always do whatever you need to do to excel at a given endeavor. There is a certain danger, however, that you may consider bending or even breaking the rules to increase your odds and put yourself ahead of the competition. This is not something you are likely to do without being encouraged or even cajoled by others; if and when you do run afoul of the law in any way, it is likely because someone else has talked you into it! There are times when "no" is your best answer.
You enjoy behaving in a spontaneous manner, especially when it comes to social situations, love in particular. Indeed, one of the things that others find most fascinating and attractive about you is the freedom you feel to do what you want, when you want.
Also born on this date are: Xzibit, rapper; Lance Armstrong, cyclist; Jada Pinkett Smith, actress; James Gandolfini, actor; Frankie Avalon, actor and singer; Robert Blake, actor; Jack Warden, actor; Greta Garbo, actress.
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.
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Pushing your own agenda may be more difficult than usual because you are, for whatever reason, far more transparent than usual.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can look back and assess your own efforts with unusual accuracy, but you have to have an honest talk with yourself afterward!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are tempted to force something that is not giving way easily, but this would be a mistake. A gentler, subtler approach is required.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll receive an offer that has you rethinking your plans for the next few days or even weeks; it represents a rare and unique opportunity.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The harder you work, the more you will enjoy the fruits of your labors, which can, by day's end, be considerable.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- As usual for those born under your sign, it's the little things that really make a big difference today -- and for a few days following.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What so often happens in similar situations is not likely to transpire today despite your expectations. Don't be too aggressive in response.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your day is likely to be prolonged by events that you could not possibly anticipate and a social element you cannot possibly avoid.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be complicating an issue beyond anyone's capacity to understand fully. It's time to simplify once again.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're doing things in a way that invites judgment and criticism, but by day's end you're likely to win more positive responses.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Any attempts at deception are likely to backfire on you. Treat everyone with the kind of openness that you expect in return.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can reconnect with certain aspects of yourself that have been lost in days or weeks past. You're experiencing a rebirth.
