Born today, you are far more likely to see and understand both sides of a complicated issue than most others born under your sign -- not because it is a natural tendency, but rather because you have been endowed with such a hunger for fairness that you feel it is disingenuous to lend your support to any cause without at least acknowledging the opposing view.
It would surprise no one were you to pursue teaching as a career, for you thrive on interaction, discussion and the open exchange of ideas -- and all kinds of ideas, at that. You never want to see yourself, or anyone else, restricted in any way from speaking about any topic. Censorship in all its forms is anathema to you.
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.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Others may not understand how complicated a certain situation really is, because the way you navigate it usually makes it seem simple and easy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take care that you record all income and expenses carefully and accurately today. Soon you'll use that information to better your overall situation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Balance is the key today, even when you are doing something entirely on your own. You know you cannot afford to overcommit at this time.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not have the time to spend on making something shiny and presentable; getting the work done in a down-and-dirty fashion must suffice.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be confused at first when you receive news from someone from afar -- but later in the day you'll know what's going on.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be feeling a little lost today after a couple of activities fail to reward you as expected. It may be time to make a change.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be surprised at how much you're willing to do today to make yourself available to someone who has something new to offer.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your penchant for the new and different may expose you to certain dangers today, and you must decide just how much, eventually, is too much.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Now is no time to throw caution to the wind. You must consider who might be affected by the decision you're tempted to make today.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're likely to be introduced today to a new line of endeavor that seems to speak to you in a way nothing has for quite some time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You cannot afford to overlook the messages sent your way today. Focus on the here and now, but think about where you might be tomorrow.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- If it's merely an adrenaline rush you're after, you can have it -- but know that you may be sacrificing something much more lasting.
