Born today, you do not always present yourself in the best possible light, and while this is not altogether intentional, it may be avoided by behavior that is designed to do the direct opposite -- and that may be something worth cultivating, certainly! You don't always want to come off as aloof, superior or judgmental, and yet that is precisely what others may think of you if you are not careful to tone down your behavior and let the more positive aspects of your personality shine through.
On the flip side, you can be highly sensitive and empathetic -- and you may even believe at times that you put on a harder shell so that others don't take advantage of the vulnerabilities that lie beneath. It's not as easy as that, certainly, and you must always work to win allies -- and keep them. You can afford to trust your more positive traits!
Also born on this date are: Joan Jett, singer; Debby Boone, singer; Scott Baio, actor; Andrea Bocelli, singer; Bonnie Hunt, actress; Tom Felton, actor; Shari Belafonte, actress; Tommy Lasorda, baseball manager.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have precious little wiggle room today, so you must do things precisely as instructed -- if possible. You can get creative later.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your observations of the world around you prove quite valuable to you today, as you are required to emulate some things you've only just seen.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Put yourself in another's shoes today, and you'll come to understand just why your perspective is lacking. Make necessary adjustments now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may find that your current routine isn't providing you with the inspiration you need -- but what, really, can you do? Look for options.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A change of scenery can work wonders today as you seek freedom from the old way of doing things. One change is all it takes to get you moving again.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You receive word from someone in charge that your recent efforts have not been up to par. Investigate further, as this may not be the case.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone may react to you in a way that takes you very much by surprise, but it could be that you have been too tentative in your initial approach.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can fix what goes awry with ease -- but take care you don't try to fix that which is not broken! Someone may change the rules on you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A promise comes your way today, which makes you more comfortable with a situation that you originally did not trust. You will make real progress.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 18) -- You'll want to make the best possible impression today, but not everyone will make this easy for you. One obstacle in particular is stubborn.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Now is no time to sugarcoat things or beat around the bush. Say what you have to say and move on -- or be ready for a setback of some kind.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Why not get to work as soon as possible today? Do so, and you'll surely beat a competitor out of the gate and establish a healthy lead.
