Born today, you are a charismatic and energetic individual who doesn't know the word "enough" -- and, indeed, there may be times in your life when this proves dangerous to you, as it can lead to overindulgence on occasion. On the other hand, you are also likely to spend your life in constant pursuit of excellence, for your willingness to "go the distance" combined with your compulsion for self-reflection will allow you to reach only for the best -- and once you have captured it, you move on to the next goal.
And there's always a "next goal" for you, as you have many lined up, ready to be pursued when the time comes and, very likely, reached. You have varied interests, and you are likely to travel many paths that diverge, intersect and intertwine in interesting ways throughout your lifetime.
You are detail-oriented, and nothing is too small to be noticed, examined and appreciated. This holds true in all things, even romance. You are at your best when in the initial throes of love, when the little things really matter -- but you also know how to make them count later, when a relationship has ripened and matured.
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.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may wake today in a mood you cannot quite understand, but later events will allow you to come to terms with it -- and something more.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is the time for you to pitch in and help those who cannot help themselves. You needn't expect compensation; involvement is payment enough.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have to repeat yourself today in order to ensure that you've learned how to follow certain steps in the proper order. Don't cheat!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll have a lot on your mind today as you try to manage someone's affairs temporarily. A high level of concentration is required.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Experience has taught you much, but today you're going to have to engage in some critical thinking in order to interpret things correctly.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your understanding will go a long way to healing a rift that has affected a certain relationship for far too long. Be the first to reach out!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll have your feet on the ground today, but you'll also want to explore where a certain dream might take you. These are not incompatible!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be tempted to indulge in something today that you've been warned against -- but if you're the only one affected, what's the danger?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to work harder than usual today to keep two very different aspects of your complicated personality in careful harmony.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're a quick learner, but today you'll encounter a problem that slows you down considerably. Someone is not telling you something.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must face certain realities today if you're going to be productive and profitable in the near future. Don't hide from the truth!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You needn't risk anything for what you will get in return. Consider making a bargain that is more equitable and that gives you a "guarantee."
