Born today, you can be counted on to do things first, as you are one of the motivated, forward-thinking and proactive individuals born under your sign. Where others see obstacles, you see opportunity, and you will charge forward knowing full well that you will have to tackle many difficulties in your pursuit of excellence and achievement -- especially in those situations in which others are more likely to hang back, turn back or avoid engaging altogether.
You have a way of reaching other people on an emotional level, and you speak to them in nonverbal ways that are far more impactful and important, over a much longer period of time, than any words you could possibly utter. Because of this, you are the kind of person to influence others based on mere acquaintance; you don't have to know people well to inspire them in some way.
Also born on this date are: Roald Dahl, author; Milton S. Hershey, entrepreneur; Ben Savage, actor; Fiona Apple, singer; Stella McCartney, designer; Michael Johnson, Olympic athlete; Jacqueline Bisset, actress; Nell Carter, actress and singer.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be able to deflect blame for the time being, but someone is going to know the truth -- and challenge you to face the whole truth.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- An accident leads you in a new direction today, and once you figure out just exactly what went wrong, you'll be able to overcome a new challenge.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- What goes around comes around, if not right away, then later, surely, and today you will enjoy a clear demonstration of the truth of the adage.
CANCER (June 20-July 22) -- You may be underestimating someone's power right now, and it's likely you will find yourself at a professional disadvantage as a result.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may discover that you have less in common with an old friend now than you once did -- but this is no secret. It's time to explore options.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to give a little extra today in order to prove to a critic that you haven't reached your limit. This is easier said than done!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Some kind of public display is likely to strike you the wrong way today -- but it's not something you should try to talk about just yet.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- An announcement is made today, and a promise kept -- but then something happens that sets you on a strange, alternate course temporarily.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll be part of bringing people together under the banner of a common cause today. Your powers of persuasion are at an all-time high.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An apology might not be enough at first, but when you and a friend have talked through this misunderstanding, all will be well once again.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You and a co-worker may explore more than cooperation today, whether or not you want to. You'll have to address the chemistry between you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Now is no time to make empty threats -- or empty promises. You must dig deep right now to make sure you're being entirely genuine.
