Born today, you seem to understand more than most, and certainly more than most born under your sign, that sadness is a part of life that can actually be used to your advantage if you let timing and circumstances assist you in navigating this otherwise negative emotion. Your creativity, which is likely to be quite apparent even from an early age, springs from your darker moods, and it is likely that the majority of your successes will come from efforts made when you are feeling blue.
Though it is anyone's guess what will capture your interest at any given time. The truth is that you have a great deal of natural ability and your interests are quite varied -- so the thought of restricting yourself to a single job or career path is anathema to you. You want to be free to do what you will, when you will, whenever possible.
Also born on this date are: F. Scott Fitzgerald, writer; John Marshall, U.S. chief justice; Jim Henson, Muppeteer; Linda McCartney, photographer and musician.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're used to taking calculated risks, but today you may be asked to lay your money down on something that is very much against the odds.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're in for a surprise today, and though you cannot prepare for it, you'll soon realize it's actually something of your own making.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're getting down to the nitty-gritty, just in time for someone to pitch in and help you with the final few essential tasks. This is exciting!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to work harder and longer today to clean up someone's sloppy efforts than on the jobs you really want to address and complete.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Good news comes your way today, but you may not be in a position just yet to respond in a way that is most appropriate and productive.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Just when you think you've gotten something behind you today, you'll have to deal with it in a whole new way. This is tricky, but not impossible.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must decide which path to take of the two that you've been trying your best to walk at the same time. You can't be in two places at once!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may receive a reminder today of something you've already taken care of. Perhaps it's time for you to work on someone else's efficiency.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You've got a few secrets you've been trying to keep, but today it may be best to let them out so you can "start over."
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The more you try to get away with today, the more others will look upon you with a critical and suspicious eye. Play it straight for now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must make certain changes at this time, but you needn't do so in a way that turns off your friends or burns any professional bridges.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may have to rely on someone to give you a boost today before you get started on a problem that threatens to derail you.
