Born today, you are likely to experience perhaps more than your share of ups and downs in life, as a result of your erratic nature, which doesn't really allow you to be consistent from one day to the next. Fortunately, you never let your nature -- or the vagaries of the stars -- get you down; you can maneuver quickly and make the best of even the most difficult of situations. Indeed, you may even come to count on certain problems and troubles to keep you energized and inspired to excel -- for nothing is worse, in your mind, than becoming complacent. You are determined to progress in ways that are quite memorable. It is likely, too, that others will follow in your footsteps.
You are likely to be recognized both for your considerable talents and for your mercurial personality. The truth is that you may actually seem quite scattered or aimless to others -- but you are always following a path that is quite clear to you.
Also born on this date are: Avril Lavigne, singer; Gwyneth Paltrow, actress; Meat Loaf, singer and actor; Anna Camp, actress; Samuel Adams, patriot; William Conrad, actor; Greg Morris, actor; Wilford Brimley, actor; Don Cornelius, TV music host.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You must do a certain something gradually today, without being tempted to do too much all at once. Easy stages lead to steady progress.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have trouble today getting things to work the way they are supposed to. Is this a technological problem, or one of your making?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have a reunion of sorts in store very soon; today, you'll have to gather information that can help to make your plans come through.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- There are several viable alternatives staring you in the face today; there's no need for you to struggle with one that isn't working for you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may not be able to keep up with someone who knows the ropes better than you. Today you must simply do what you can not to be left behind.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be separated from a friend or loved one for a while, but you'll make use of the time in ways that surprise you. A reunion comes soon.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You and a friend have something cooking, but you mustn't reveal too much too soon. The element of surprise works in your favor.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll want to take care of business for yourself first before tending to someone else's needs. You can accommodate everyone by day's end.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Focus on where you are going, not where you have been. The past is the past, and what you've done cannot be undone -- at least not right now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have a great deal at stake right now, and others have hitched their causes to your wagon, which raises the stakes even more.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have the opportunity to sit quietly and get your work done, even though much is happening around you. You won't be distracted.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- No one is really paying attention to you today, despite any sensation to the contrary. You can do what you want -- for a time.
