Born today, you are always willing to explore the more unusual aspects of life, whether directly via your own travel and involvement, or indirectly by way of books, magazines, online materials and the like. You are not at all interested in that which is ordinary. Indeed, ordinary places, people and endeavors will never be fully known to you, as you will choose to avoid them whenever you can. You are drawn to that which allows you to challenge yourself; you often prefer being wrong on the road over being right doing what comes easily. Danger is not something you actively seek out, but it is also not something you will run from if you encounter it directly. You can be something of a daredevil, but you want to know the full extent of the risks that you are facing.
You have a kind of "shadow self" only those who know you intimately are at all aware of. Indeed, when you are with your closest friends, you may behave in ways that would shock many who think they know you well. And when it comes to friends, you would rather have two or three very good friends than many who are more distant and casual.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have enough on your mind that there shouldn't be a moment that you cannot fill with some kind of productive thought or other.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your understanding of a complex personal issue will increase considerably, thanks to what you overhear two friends saying.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may feel separated from your core group, but that can be a good thing as you struggle to understand a recent development.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Information will arrive in bits and pieces, and you'll have to put it together much as one assembles a jigsaw puzzle.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must reveal your thinking to someone you expect to assist you when the time comes. Don't make him or her guess what's going on!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may find yourself playing the waiting game with someone who seems to have the advantage over you -- but only for now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Another's readiness will affect your own. Use the time you have before getting started on a new project to get other things in line.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Don't be too quick to complain about something that is beyond your control, as you may discover it can actually be an advantage.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Be mindful of how you will do a certain task. You don't want to be thought of as someone who doesn't care how things look to others.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may have some time to yourself, but it's likely you'll still have to get some work done. You can combine business and pleasure.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are very near to a personal goal. A friend will have a surprise that affects how much you can spend and how much you can save.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A current effort may not yield the results you are after, but someone who knows what you are up to may be able to alter the outcome a bit.
