Born today, you have great ambition and tremendous desires that will help to steer you on your journey through life. You crave knowledge and know-how; you want to be recognized as one who is comfortable in all sorts of situations, doing whatever you may be called upon to do. You may have been quite studious as a child, often preferring alone time with your books to playtime with your friends. Later in life you will recognize the need to get out in the world to develop the many talents with which you have been endowed. It is not enough, after all, to read about something; you have to try it!
You are quite able to follow directions, but if such directions are not forthcoming, you can follow your instincts and succeed at even the most complicated endeavors. You can be an important member of a well-oiled, integrated team, or you can work entirely alone, as circumstances require. You enjoy the social scene, but you prefer meaningful conversation with one or two close friends.
Also born on this date are: Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex; Tommy Lee Jones, actor; Dan Marino, football player; Agatha Christie, mystery writer; Oliver Stone, screenwriter and director; William Howard Taft, U.S. president; Gaylord Perry, baseball player; Nipsey Russell, actor; Josh Charles, actor; Jackie Cooper, actor; Fay Wray, actress.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are marking time in a way that serves you very well right now, but you must get ready to make a change that another imposes on you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- First impressions mean more today than usual. You have what it takes to get things done without collecting a team of experts; trust yourself.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may come upon a barrier that wasn't meant for you, but that stands in your way just the same. You have an effective solution at the ready.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You and a friend may have to turn to a third party to solve a problem that both of you had a hand in creating. Heed the advice of an elder.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can have more than you bargained for today -- and you can make sure, too, that what you get is very much what you wanted. Luck plays a role.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Something is likely to be finalized after a good deal of preparation and waiting. You've had your ducks in a row for a while now.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's a good time to show your appreciation for something that a friend has been doing for you for quite some time. Wait no longer.
