Born today, you aren't likely to hit the big time all at once. Rather, your success will build up bit by bit, accomplishment by accomplishment, until the work you have done in the past is recognized for what it is and you are praised and rewarded for dedication, commitment, imagination and a unique approach to what you do. You'll never lose touch with your inner child, and you will always maintain ties to your roots, no matter where you came from -- be it a small town or large metropolis. You are a student of human nature; you notice the little things and weigh them carefully to determine whether each item matters. Usually, you will find that those little things really do make a big difference!
You are an honest, loyal, faithful individual for whom the most deeply personal events in life are the most important. You know how to progress in increments; you don't expect immediate enjoyment when doing something new, and you are always willing to do your homework and learn what you need to learn in order to move forward.
Also born on this date are: Bill Murray, actor; Stephen King, author; Faith Hill, singer; Larry Hagman, actor; Luke Wilson, actor; Ricki Lake, actress and television host; Chuck Jones, animator; H.G. Wells, author; Jerry Bruckheimer, producer; Nancy Travis, actress; Ethan Coen, filmmaker; Cheryl Hines, actress; Rob Morrow, actor; Anne Burrell, celebrity chef; Fannie Flagg, actress and comedian; Leonard Cohen, singer-songwriter.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You've been talking, haven't you? There are some who do not appreciate what they consider to be reckless behavior. Make amends!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to make changes to your schedule very late in the day, but they will have precisely the retroactive effect you are after.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Much that happens around you will surprise you -- but then, you have refrained from having any real expectations at all recently.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You don't have to try to outperform all of your rivals. Pick one, and focus on doing something that he or she is unable to do.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You've been waiting for the right time to step in and rearrange things to your liking -- and that time is now. Don't squander this opportunity!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may learn something about a friend or two that will give you a feeling of superiority, but you mustn't let them know that, certainly!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have at least one good reason to let someone do something you would normally prohibit. How the day pans out will depend on this.
