Born today, you have a few unusual traits that can keep you at the fore, under the critical and often admiring eyes of those around you, for much of your life. You are not one to do things the usual way. Indeed, if you were asked, you wouldn't even know what the "usual way" is! You can get very far on the force of your personality alone, but you realize that there will surely come a time when knowing what you are doing, and doing it better than anyone else, will be the currency you use to buy success after success. You feel compelled to do things in a bold, fearless manner. You don't like to sneak up on a situation, but instead you approach everything in life directly and boldly, without a thought of danger or failure -- or at least without worrying about what other people think. The truth is that you plan your endeavors very carefully.
You don't always have to be rewarded for a job well done; to you, a good performance is often its own reward. You do, however, like to show off in order to attract romantic interest. Time and again, you may find yourself engaged in a love affair that began when you turned in an extraordinary performance at work.
Also born on this date are: Ludacris, rapper; Harry Connick Jr., singer and actor; Bear Bryant, coach; Kristy McNichol, actress; Moby, composer and musician; Tom Landry, football coach; Virginia Madsen, actress; Brian De Palma, filmmaker; Ferdinand Marcos, Philippine leader; D.H. Lawrence, writer; Amy Madigan, actress.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll want to set aside some time to do something with a family member who has felt recently that your relationship has changed.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The quality of your work must not suffer just because you are trying to up the quantity of your output. Excellence is a key goal!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're likely to learn a thing or two about how something is done, but that doesn't mean you're ready to give it a try just yet.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Where two are concerned, an agreement can easily be reached; but if you add a third, you'll have to work harder in all aspects of the matter.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have a hard time wrapping your head around an idea that someone brings to you -- until you realize what it can actually do for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have more than one theory to explain certain goings-on, but it's likely that the evidence will point to only one. That must be it!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're trying to force something that needs to happen organically. Try stepping back a bit and letting things develop on their own.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll feel more comfortable in a new environment than you did in one that was quite familiar. This may not be permanent, however.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Someone may not appreciate your attempts to force an agreement between conflicting parties. Still, an agreement must be forged!
