Born today, you are one of the most creative individuals born under your sign, but you are in no way a slave to that particular "artistic temperament" that tends toward unmoored thinking and undisciplined behavior. On the contrary, you are realistic, pragmatic and hardworking, and these traits give you a distinct advantage when it comes to turning your dreams into reality. From an early age you will have a clear sense of who you are and what you were "made" to do -- and from that time your life is likely to have been a clear journey from signpost to signpost leading at times circuitously but always inevitably toward your desired destination.
You know how to stick with something even when the going gets tough -- and some would credit you for being at your best through hardship. You certainly prefer winning to losing, but you never let losing get you down; you learn from it.
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.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're in need of a little alone time, and if you don't get it today, someone is going to hear about it! This is an encounter you want to avoid.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You will want to make your opinion known today before someone in charge makes any decisions that affect you directly. Speak right up!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You receive a message from someone who figured prominently in at least one past project. It's time to plan another collaboration perhaps.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You receive news that knocks you off balance temporarily, but once a certain reality reveals itself, you'll be in fine form once again.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be confused by someone's preference for your "old" ways -- when it was that person who originally suggested you change. Discuss this!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Remember, it's the people who show up who make the decisions -- and there's an important decision pending that you want to be a part of.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may attract more attention today than expected, and you must deal with it in a manner that shows off your skills in the best possible light.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- An unexpected change in your schedule may be handed down from above, but you can surely adjust. Your reputation as a team player is secure.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to deliver some bad news to someone who has been by your side for some time. A test of loyalty may soon follow.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You should be able to guide someone over some tricky terrain today with little trouble, and this relationship is enriched as a result.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll find your way today despite lacking the kinds of guidance tools you are used to using. Afternoon events boost your spirits some.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your ability to mix and mingle with all sorts of people will hold you in good stead today, as the path you follow surprises you more than once.
