Born today, you are not one to accept the restrictions or limitations that might be placed on you by others. You will instead charge ahead regardless, and prove wrong those who suggested that you don't have what it takes to excel at a certain endeavor. You feel driven to be your best, that much is certain, but what is uncertain is the path you will take to fulfill this need. You may actually have to explore numerous career choices before you settle on the one -- or two -- that really give you the chance to shine, to prove yourself, and to satisfy your need to make a name for yourself despite any doubts that others may have about your efforts. You are never one to let an opportunity die on the vine; rather, you will explore it until your interest has died -- or until you realize that it is simply not for you, for whatever reason.
You love knowledge; learning of all kinds affords you the greatest personal contentment -- and excitement, too. You are attracted to those who demonstrate high intelligence and a desire to study the world and its people that measures up to your own. You do not like to waste your time with anyone who doesn't know what you are about.
Also born on this date are: Jennifer Hudson, singer and actress; Yao Ming, basketball player; Andrew Luck, football player; George Jones, singer; Barry White, singer; Jesse Owens, Olympic athlete; Louis C.K., comedian and actor; Hans Zimmer, composer; Linda Gray, actress; Ian Holm, actor; Rachel Ward, actress; Joe Pantoliano, actor; Maurice Chevalier, actor and singer; Paul Walker, actor.
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Keeping abreast of a quickly developing situation will prove quite difficult, but you can do it if you keep your ears and eyes open.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may want to start your day before you even get out of bed. What you do in the privacy of your own room can have a lasting impact.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Issues of personnel and planning will converge and require you to solve a problem that only you were able to anticipate.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not want anyone to look at the work you have done, but that will be necessary if you wish to avoid any careless errors.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You want to present your ideas at exactly the right time and in exactly the right place. Now may be the only time those two things converge.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are feeling sympathetic toward someone on the other side of the fence, even though you could never embrace his or her cause.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can afford to be a little more tolerant of another -- even, perhaps, more understanding. There are few differences between you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Something will start, and you'll want it to end before it goes too far. Much will depend on your ability to avoid an emotional response.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Others may suddenly realize that you are the only person who truly understands a certain situation that is getting a bit out of control.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Are the desires of a loved one not worthy of your consideration? Now is no time to be selfish; give him or her satisfaction.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You don't have to put something in the most traditional of terms for others to understand what you are really saying.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You don't want to cramp the style of another, yet that may be just what you have to do to make your own headway.
