Born today, you are a highly emotional individual, though others may not know it, for you never wear your heart on your sleeve. Rather, you keep things under wraps, beneath the surface, where you can access your feelings at any time. Do not think, however, that because you are protective of your emotions and can tap into them freely that you can control them. On the contrary, they often have control of you, and this is something you must get used to, for it will affect you in all your personal affairs and professional endeavors. You must learn to ride the wave of your own feelings, knowing full well that only by successful surfing can you avoid drowning in a dangerous sea of threatening emotion.
You can use almost anything you come across in life as a tool, for you are quite resourceful and imaginative. You can turn one thing into something else entirely in order to satisfy your requirements. You are hard-wired for accomplishment, programmed to succeed.
Also born on this date are: Hank Williams, singer-songwriter; John Ritter, actor; Charles Martinet, actor; Roddy McDowall, actor; Anne Bancroft, actress; William Carlos Williams, poet; Ken Kesey, author; Baz Luhrmann, filmmaker; Rita Rudner, comedian.
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're being watched, but not for the reason you had assumed. Once you understand why others are fascinated, you can make that work for you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be expecting more from a certain situation than is actually possible. Still, your optimism can serve you well now and in the future.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are ready for anything -- or so you think. A surprise may come to you, unintentionally perhaps, at the hands of a loved one.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don't let anyone interrupt you when you are working on the central component of an important personal project. Protect your time and efforts!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone in charge may not understand your motives, but he or she certainly appreciates the work that you are getting done.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A new phase is just beginning, and you must be sure that you have dotted all your i's and crossed all your t's before moving on.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to deal with some technical issues before things are humming along as anticipated. Avoid making any decisions prematurely.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You know how to do what has to be done, though others may stand in your way for reasons you cannot yet grasp. Be patient -- and ready.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may find yourself following a trail of clues that lead you directly to a major new discovery. Keep it to yourself for now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you're interested in seeing things done a certain way, you need to explain to others exactly what you know how to do.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your enthusiasm is high, but your readiness could be improved. You can spend time later in the day preparing for what's coming your way.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to wait until a routine interruption has passed before you can really make an impact. Others will wait their turn, too.
