Born today, you like the world to think you are tough and unyielding, and in certain situations you certainly can be, but more often than not, those who know you best see through the facade you have tried to manufacture for yourself. They recognize your true nature -- which is far more sensitive and even emotional than you would care to admit.
You know how to illuminate even the most tangled issues with clarity, and your talent for personal expression is one of your greatest. Many, ultimately, will consider you a teacher or mentor -- or, at the very least, a role model. You know how to inspire and empower others -- and they always know who to thank for any personal boost.
Also born on this date are: Bill Murray, actor; Stephen King, author; Faith Hill, singer; Larry Hagman, actor; Luke Wilson, actor; H.G. Wells, author; Jerry Bruckheimer, producer; Nancy Travis, actress; Ethan Coen, director and writer.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your opinion may not be actively sought, but it can surely prove valuable if you're willing to break an unwritten rule and speak out of turn.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A business decision cannot be made today without taking a loved one's needs into account. Other complications may come to the fore as well.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Only after you've gotten started today will you be willing to consider suggestions from others -- and by then your efforts may be foolproof.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can demonstrate your commitment to a certain cause today by doing things that only a true believer would do. You'll be talked about.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may not be able to do as much good as you had hoped today, but even a little is better than none at all. Stay the course with confidence.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Take care today that you give any and all instructions clearly, as there is only a small chance that anyone will have time to correct errors.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may question your abilities today, but not for long. Once you get moving in the right direction, everything should fall into place.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A situation long thought to be worked out is likely to be back in the headlines -- if only figuratively. You know what needs to be done.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have trouble coming up with either a "yes" or "no" answer to a key question today. Can you weigh both options more carefully?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your version of the truth is likely to differ from someone else's version today, and you'll soon realize there's no room for both.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-feb. 18) -- You are eager to do something today that others are going to remember -- but you must take care that it is for the right reason.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Others may be pressuring you to cut short a visit of sorts, but as long as you're still learning a thing or two, you'll want to stay put.
