Born today, you are both a dreamer and a doer, one who allows the highest ideals and most whimsical fancies to shape realistic thoughts and plans. Some may call you a "Pollyanna," for you are so genuinely optimistic that you see only the good in people and situations. Or so it seems. The truth is that you can accept the dual nature of man -- angel and devil -- as reality, but that you don't let it shape your behavior or your relationships. You will always give another person the benefit of the doubt. When it comes to your personal relationships, you are generous and thoughtful, willing to sacrifice, and always able to step in and do what others might not to give assistance and encouragement. You are the kind of friend every friend would like to be.
You don't like doing what you are told and never really follow a rigid schedule -- at least not that anyone can tell. Is there a method to your way of doing things? Certainly -- but it is uniquely your own, and not the kind that others can easily understand. You know how to manage your money, but you have a tendency to overspend.
Also born on this date are: Olivia Newton-John, singer and actress; Serena Williams, tennis player; Jim Caviezel, actor; T.S. Eliot, poet; Linda Hamilton, actress; George Gershwin, composer and songwriter; Kent McCord, actor; Jack LaLanne, fitness guru; Ivan Pavlov, physiologist.
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.
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not understand just what a friend is going through, but you can be there to lend a hand when the time comes. Don't be intrusive!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be able to do more today than you had planned, simply because you overestimated how long a certain task would take.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are after just a bit more kindness and consideration, and you may find it among a new set of friends and acquaintances.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll be ahead of the game as the day begins, and you must take care that you don't fall behind simply because you were overconfident.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You and a friend can come to an agreement about something that affects you both very differently. Soon you'll move on to something else.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not be able to trust in technology to see you through today. Indeed, you may get much more done with old-fashioned pen and paper!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be doing something that, quite unintentionally, is making things difficult for another -- or making him or her look bad. Make adjustments now.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are eager to make amends with someone who, not long ago, was taking things far too personally and let your relationship falter.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- There's no telling which course is best for you today; you must be willing to try one and then the other if that doesn't satisfy.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An imaginative approach to a rather mundane problem saves the day -- and has you looking forward to more of what you experienced today.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're eager and willing, but perhaps not all that prepared. It's a good time to open a book or, better, study an expert at work.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You want nothing but the best, but that may be out of reach because of a recent setback. This doesn't mean you can't plan for next time.
