Born today, you are by no means conventional, nor are you the kind of person to follow an entirely new and unfamiliar path to your goals. Rather, you enjoy taking what has been done before, tinkering with it, manipulating it and reshaping it in a way that serves both your needs and your pleasure. You have a way of enjoying what you do so deeply that the results of your efforts become manifestations of your inner self -- the art of your very soul. The products of your effort may not always be lucrative, or even recognized as valuable by others, but whenever you finish a job or a project of any kind you can be sure to enjoy the fruits of your labors in a deeply personal way. You like to be able to step back, smile and say, "I did that!"
Also born on this date are: Hank Williams, singer-songwriter; John Ritter, actor; Charles Martinet, actor; Roddy McDowall, actor; Anne Bancroft, actress; William Carlos Williams, poet; Ken Kesey, author; Baz Luhrmann, filmmaker; Rita Rudner, comedian; James Urbaniak, actor and screenwriter; Kyle Chandler, actor; Bryan Singer, filmmaker; Nate Berkus, interior designer.
You keep your private life very private indeed, and nothing makes you angrier than when facts about your personal affairs become public knowledge. You believe firmly that what goes on behind closed doors belongs there! You are never patient or forgiving with those who would uncover what you want to remain hidden.
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 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll have good reason to say yes on many occasions, as the opportunities you'll be offered are simply too good to pass up.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can win someone's favor simply by doing what comes naturally, but the timing is most important. He or she has to be ready to notice you!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not want to be the center of attention, but there's little you can do about that, one way or the other. Be ready for anything.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Something you've been noticing for some time will be in full bloom by day's end, and a new personal phase can begin.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Have you been making promises that you cannot keep? Only you know whether the answer is yes or no -- and how to change that if need be.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can derive a great deal of excitement and inspiration from working with new people in a new environment. Which of each will you choose?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Communication is the key to solving a major problem. You have the opportunity to invite others to discuss things freely.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Someone wants to give you something that no one else can, but are you willing to make the commitment that will be required?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You need to get some extra work done, and today is the perfect day to do it. Roll up your sleeves and get started as quickly as you can.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your reaction to what someone comes up with will say a great deal about you -- and may reveal much about your feelings toward him or her.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can take a shortcut, but you may not end up exactly where you wish to be by day's end. It's probably better to take the longer road.
