For Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2003:
Those with birthdays today: Work on giving the clearest message possible. You draw strong reactions and might opt to transform many of your ways. You will be able to do whatever you want and excel in whatever you choose. If you are single, someone you meet in the late spring could knock your socks off. If you are attached, spend more quality time together, and you'll soar into a very special year. Gemini pushes you to achieve.
The stars show the kind of day you'll have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
