Born today, you are not one to challenge others or face them down in any way; you prefer to focus on yourself and where you are going. You cannot be bothered by the activities of those around you; instead, you are determined to make the best of yourself and do the best you can in the situations that arise in your life. This ability to turn a deaf ear to the noise caused by others is sure to give you a tremendous advantage at work and at play -- and even in your personal life. You are not likely to be distracted by any sort of storm that may be stirred up by instigators -- especially those who, for whatever reason, may choose to work directly against you. You go about your business in an informed, conscientious, dedicated manner, not to be flustered or deterred by pointless drama.
When young, you may not have known how to direct your energy and enthusiasm. As you mature, your success is based entirely on doing just that. Your particular magic, however, has to do with retaining aspects of your more youthful self that surely remain valuable; you aren't the kind to turn your back on who you used to be.

Martin, author; Jay Ward, animator.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll want to highlight certain things and conceal others, but you must take care that you don't attract the wrong kind of attention.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Others are depending on you, so why aren't you engaging fully? Is there something going on that you don't want to reveal to those around you?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may find that you are unable to do what you had promised. Don't wait to tell others, as they will have to make changes right away!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don't skip any appointments, even though you will be tempted when someone comes to you with a surprising proposition.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Those in your care are looking to you as an example, and you surely don't want to let them down. Do your best, in the way only you are able.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be somewhat oversensitive, and many who know you well are bound to notice. Certain key changes may have to be made.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will want to let your creativity soar -- once you free yourself from certain self-restrictions. You've held yourself back for too long!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Pay no attention to those who would have you think that you can't get it all done. You can prove the naysayers wrong all at once.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may find yourself far from the beaten path, but that should afford you the opportunity to explore a hidden aspect of your nature.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- There is so much going on right now that you may have trouble deciding where to dedicate your efforts. Don't choose randomly!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- This is a good day to let bygones be bygones, especially where a housemate is concerned. You don't want to increase tensions, surely!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can step in and do for another what he or she did for you not long ago. This kind of reciprocity is admirable -- and wins you praise.
