For Sunday, Sept. 12, 2004. Those with birthdays today: The strength of your personality emerges only after you are sure of your positions and thoughts. Often you will mull over ideas, double-check facts and do your homework before presenting your views. You will enjoy yourself alone and do activities that relax you. You might become interested in yoga or decide to get some therapy. Your very practical approach will make you a lot of money in the winter. If you are single, you easily could find yourself in a "secret" relationship or with someone who's emotionally unavailable. If you are attached, your bond will grow because of special time you spend together.
