Born today, you are one of life's great personalities, the sort that others want to imitate if not be, and the kind who can inspire others to do their best in all manner of ordinary and extraordinary situations. While some may shy away from the spotlight, you seek it out; while some may avoid positions of authority, you prefer them; and while some may wish to go under the radar throughout their lives, you prefer to be out in the open and under scrutiny, for it inspires you to do your best in situations both ordinary and extraordinary.
You are quite adventurous, and you're likely to be exposed to more than your share of danger as a result -- but you are also quite lucky and should be able to avoid any serious pitfalls as you make your way from one challenge to the next.
Also born on this date are: Sophia Loren, actress; Anne Meara, actress; Gary Cole, actor; Upton Sinclair, author; Guy Lafleur, hockey player; Kristen Johnston, actress; Dale Chihuly, glass sculptor; George R.R. Martin, author.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Quality and quantity may be one and the same today -- at least for a while, when you are dealing with a problem of perspective and proportion.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be critical of someone else's performance today, and you can learn much from what you think did and didn't work.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You cannot expect something to be exactly like something else when, in fact, they were meant to be very different! Calibrate your point of view.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You want something tangible in return for what you've offered a friend or loved one -- but he or she may not agree on its overall value. Discuss!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can make progress today, but you'll want to be sure that where you're going is really where you want to end up. Honest reflection is key.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may encounter an unanticipated danger today. Let a friend step in if you are feeling in any way unable to deal with it head-on.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A competition between you and a rival heats up, but there's no reason why you cannot maintain a certain level of fun throughout the day.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may feel pressure to do something that isn't "natural" to you. Listen to any and all warnings before heading into uncharted territory.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're wondering what harm can come of doing something in a more unconventional way than usual. A friend provides the answer today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What goes around comes around today, so you mustn't think you're out of the woods simply because of what has already happened. Be ready!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A minor shock may have you reeling during the first part of the day, but you can recover quickly and do much to undo any harm that was done.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A minor negotiation becomes much more tricky than expected today. You have an ace up your sleeve -- but it shouldn't come to that.
