Born today, you are perhaps one of the most straightforward and transparent individuals born under your sign. You mean what you say, do what you want and mix with whom you please. You are eager to share your life with others, and you will surely find a way to do this either professionally or otherwise; in some creative way you will pursue an outlet that allows you to express yourself fully. Despite these seemingly lofty ambitions, you are quite down to earth and realistic; you never behave in a self-important manner and always treat others as you would be treated. Your ability to make others feel important is well known -- and much appreciated.
Though you are the kind to lead others rather than be led, when it comes to matters of the heart you are more likely to be the pursued than the pursuer. It's not so much a strategy that you've developed but a pattern that you've allowed to evolve over time. And if it works, there's no reason for you to change!
Also born on this date are: Bruce Springsteen, rocker; Ray Charles, singer and musician; Mickey Rooney, actor; Jason Alexander, actor; Julio Iglesias, singer; Elizabeth Pena, actress; John Coltrane, musician; Anthony Mackie, actor; Augustus, Roman emperor.
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 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll have to learn the ropes very quickly today; be sure that you get help from someone who knows all the rules -- including the fine print.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A sticky situation gives you a rare opportunity to try something you've long been considering but didn't have the guts to attempt.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Distractions abound. Seek a safe haven in the middle of an emotional storm. Someone makes demands that you don't think you can live up to.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may decide that a current project is no longer for you. Is it boredom that plagues you? There are ways to re-engage successfully.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone else is likely to provide the outlines today, but it'll be up to you to fill in the details. Why not be imaginative and go wild?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You've lived through a similar experience to today's, and that past experience gives you a clue as to how you should react now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your attempt to get to the bottom of a certain mystery is likely to fall short -- and uncover yet another mystery that you and others must solve.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- As soon as you think something is a "sure thing" you're kidding yourself. You know better; nothing is guaranteed today!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Getting your ducks in a row may prove trickier than you think. A friend steps in and provides you with a missing piece of information.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone you know behaves in a manner that confuses you at first, until you uncover his or her thinly veiled motive. Why not play along?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can work a certain situation to your advantage today, surprising both your critics and your closest rivals with your flexibility.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You don't want to be at anyone's beck and call today, but the fact is that you cannot free yourself from one duty in particular.
