Born today, you seem to know better than most what makes people tick, and this gives you a distinct advantage in almost any situation. You seem able, at any time, to read those near you and to anticipate their actions. Woe to anyone who chooses to sit down with you at a poker table and wager big stakes -- he or she is bound to walk away empty-handed! You put your own personal stamp on most things that you do -- even those that might be considered routine or mundane. You clean the house in your own way, and you solve the world's problems in your own way, too.
You have a deep and abiding respect for those who have gone before you, who have blazed trails and shown others the way. This doesn't mean, however, that you feel the need to imitate them blindly.
Also born on this date are: Chris Tucker, actor and comedian; Richard Gere, actor; Van Morrison, singer; Itzhak Perlman, musician; Eldridge Cleaver, Black Panther leader; Frank Robinson, baseball player; James Coburn, actor; Buddy Hackett, actor and comedian; Alan Jay Lerner, lyricist.
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.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will want to be the first one to apologize -- not because you are more wrong than anyone else, but to get the ball rolling.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are partially responsible for a problem that comes to a head today -- so you'll want to be fully responsible for solving it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll have the chance to step forward and show everyone in the room just what you're really made of -- and the jokes are bound to stop!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll be required to look more honestly at yourself today than you have at any time in recent memory. What you see doesn't displease you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Some things are sure to be easier than expected, but some will prove harder -- and those that are harder are certainly worth the effort.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Are you able to admit it when you're wrong? Today, that may come in handy in ways you had not even thought of -- at least twice.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You don't want to be distracted by anything that isn't really a part of the central issue requiring your attention.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll have your hands full with another's odd behavior. He or she doesn't quite understand that you're trying to work as a team.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What is normal, anyway? Today, you'll find yourself asking that question several times as someone challenges your presuppositions.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not have a great deal of time to yourself, so when you find a spare five minutes, you'll want to protect that time!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may find yourself engaged in a strange sort of argument in which there really are no sides. So what are you really fighting about?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Are you feeling guilty about something that happened long, long ago? It's time to accept the fact that much of it was purely accidental.
