Born today, you don't have to be the boss, certainly, but you do have to be allowed to do things your way. You want to be treated fairly and respected as someone who knows what he or she wants -- and how to get it. You may be more soft-spoken than many who share your ambition and professional aspirations, but that doesn't mean that you don't have what it takes to reach your goals. On the contrary, you may actually reach them before most others, as you go about your business so quietly that you attract little or no attention -- until the day comes when you cross the finish line well ahead of your competition. You are serious about what you do and who you are, but you are also able to laugh at yourself and the world around you. You enjoy the company of others, but you can be quite content entirely on your own.
You have a certain genius for caring for others, yet it is something that frightens you quite a bit. You believe that you are hardly able to take care of yourself, much less anyone else -- but this is simply untrue. You know very well how to keep others safe and protected while nurturing them and encouraging them to reach for the brass ring -- and grab it!

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.
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may choose to open the door to something rather frightening. A certain someone has the answer to a troubling question.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll be tempted to say yes even before you have heard the question -- but take care, as a hidden threat may be involved.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's good for you to talk about schedules as early as you can. Once you know when and where to do a thing, others will fall into place.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but when someone begins mocking you, something else is surely going on!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) — You'll be pushed into a corner by someone who doesn’t know the depth of your resolve. It's time to talk openly about difficult issues.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You know you have what it takes to do a thing, but in order to get permission to do it, you must first convince those in charge. Get it done!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will want to guard against invisible threats, but how? Take the advice of a friend who was in a similar position in the past.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Something developing very slowly will give you reason to back away from what you see as a growing threat. Don't let anyone set a trap for you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A little experimentation may yield exactly the solution you've been looking for, but do you know the problem inside and out?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have to ask for help, but you must first acknowledge that you will need to reveal certain secrets before anyone will be able to assist you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The more people who become involved in your affairs, the more likely you are to lose sight of your primary goal.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A friend's efforts will benefit you, but you may not be able to enjoy the fruits of his or her labors until you've returned the favor.
