Born today, you will have staked your claim to fame and fortune at a very early age. This doesn't mean that success is guaranteed! On the contrary, it depends largely upon your ability to focus, to work hard, to climb the highest peaks and to stay on course even when everything around you is pulling you this way and that, threatening to distract you from your work. In other words, it may be quite clear when you are young what your particular destiny may be, but fulfilling that destiny depends on you, and you must never sit back and wait for it to come to you. Rather, you must pursue it aggressively, with a cool head and a clear eye, often subjecting yourself to hardship and sacrifice.
You have tremendous charm and charisma, and you know how to open doors with just a look. There are always some who will put themselves at your disposal and give you precisely what you want before you even ask! Take care, however: You must never abuse this gift, but use it wisely and sparingly.
Also born on this date are: Sophia Loren, actress; Anne Meara, actress; Gary Cole, actor; Upton Sinclair, author; Guy Lafleur, hockey player; Debbi Morgan, actress; Kristen Johnston, actress; Jay Ward, animator.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your ability to look beyond an immediate problem and see the big picture over the long term is sure to serve you well throughout the day.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have a long history of success at a certain endeavor, and there's no reason to do it any differently from the way it's worked for you before.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will want to play it cool. Remain calm and rational, no matter what kind of challenges may be thrown your way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A look back at prior communications will reveal to you a breakdown that has resulted in a current difficulty. A solution is at hand.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You and a friend will surely be in sync. The two of you can do things together in a manner that wins a great deal of praise from others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Quality and quantity can both increase, but don't focus on results as much as the methods you use to achieve them.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are more able than most others to see things in a balanced, unbiased fashion -- though you do have your opinions.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may want to challenge someone's version of what has been happening recently. You have a unique point of view.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're likely to fall back on a familiar option rather than experiment with something new. Fatigue may well be a factor.
