Born today, you are more interested in matters of the mind than of the heart and more drawn to learning than to any other human endeavor. You love the art of self-expression, and you will no doubt learn all you can about every sort of expressive outlet available to you. Be it music, poetry, prose, music or expression that requires no words, you are sure to study it deeply and immerse yourself in it until it becomes very much a part of your life in all things both personal and professional.
You love to read and may well learn many languages in your lifetime. You will always be compelled to communicate openly with others -- not because of the messages imparted, necessarily, but for the human dynamics that result, and for what you can learn about yourself in the process. Other people are, to you, like books: They teach you much!
Also born on this date are: Hank Williams Sr., singer and songwriter; John Ritter, actor; Charles Martinet, actor; Roddy McDowall, actor; Anne Bancroft, actress; William Carlos Williams, poet; Rita Rudner, comedienne.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What others have to offer isn't likely to render your own contributions obsolete. You can and should play an important role all day long.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone may be expecting you to commit to something that goes against all that you believe in. You'll have to have a difficult conversation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Distractions abound. Give a friend what you can in support of a new idea. Your involvement will be appreciated -- and handsomely rewarded.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Avoid what you do not know or anything that doesn't come naturally. Today you want to keep yourself in calm, navigable waters. Risks are high.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're not quite sure what someone is getting at, but you suspect there is something going on that you simply cannot condone. State your case.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You don't want to find yourself in over your head today. Stay in the shallow water until you are sure that you can remain afloat.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You receive one or two messages today that, on the surface, appear to be for someone else. You'll discover their significance soon.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A friend or loved one can surely relate to your current circumstances, and vice versa. It's a good day to consider trading places.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may receive news that has you considering cutting short a vacation or business trip. Wait until all facts have been confirmed.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- How you interpret what you see and hear today makes all the difference. Facts are only as influential as you make them; consider all options.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- An overly defensive stance is likely to give too much away to your rivals today. You must keep as much as possible under wraps.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's not enough to be energetic, you must also focus that energy in a way that yields immediate results. Stick to your game plan today.
