Born today, you enjoy adventure, but you will rarely sacrifice your personal safety or the safety of others in pursuit of an adventurous lifestyle. What you do enjoy is exploring, from a distance, the kind of exciting and even dangerous endeavors that are enjoyed by others -- in other words, living vicariously through those who are willing to take the kinds of risks that you are not. You do not, however, want to do everything "secondhand"; on the contrary, you can often be found on the front lines of campaigns that are more idealistic and intellectual than physical, as you have a fine mind and the ability to grasp and communicate the most complex concepts and ideas.
Though you appear to lead a rather conventional, conservative life, the truth is that others would be quite surprised to learn what goes on behind closed doors -- safe from prying eyes and the uncontrollable dangers the world may otherwise spring upon you. When it comes to love, you will try anything once -- almost!
Also born on this date are: Hank Williams, singer-songwriter; John Ritter, actor; Charles Martinet, voice actor; Roddy McDowall, actor; Anne Bancroft, actress; William Carlos Williams, poet; Ken Kesey, author; Baz Luhrmann, director; Rita Rudner, comedian.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Those in your care are keenly interested in doing something again that was of great enjoyment not long ago. Are you up for it?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your plans are surely subject to change, as always, but there is one certain variable that may be giving you fits.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're eager to tend to business and move on to other things, but someone else is not moving as efficiently as you would like.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your own expectations may be locking you in to a line of thought that doesn't serve you well. It's time to let go of them for good!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can say much with very few words -- particularly if you continue to do things that reflect your own ideals clearly and confidently.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- There will be no shortage of things to capture your attention and fire your imagination. Take advantage of as many as you can.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The answers you seek are there for you, but you may not know where to look -- at least not as the day opens. Stay calm and take your time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your learning curve may be an issue. You can't force yourself to absorb information, but you must try to pick up the pace.
