Born today, you aren't the kind to engage in petty tasks, small talk or useless treks here and there just to keep busy. If you're going to do something, you're going to be sure that it amounts to something and will result in measurable gains for yourself and others. If it does not promise these things, you would much rather do nothing at all, spending your time thinking thoughts and planning plans, and musing about the overall state of the world. You have a deeply spiritual side, and this is nourished only through thought and contemplation of people, places, things and worldwide developments.
You care about so much, in fact, that you do at times wear your heart on your sleeve -- but you are the kind of person who is somehow respected for that, and you rarely have to put up with any kind of derision, as so many sensitive, emotional people do.
Also born on this date are: Rosie Perez, actress; Jane Curtin, actress and comedian; Swoosie Kurtz, actress; Jeff Foxworthy, comedian; Joseph P. Kennedy, diplomat and patriarch.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7
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.
CAPRIOCORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are likely to receive a message that changes the entire tenor of your day; you may feel as though much is topsy-turvy right now.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A misinterpretation of sorts may set the ball rolling in the wrong direction. It's up to you to restart things and restore order.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The positive and the negative may be closely conjoined -- but you have a way of spotting what is best in almost any situation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can employ charm and humor to great effect throughout the day -- and even turn your most vocal critic into something of a supporter.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You must be ready to jump into the whirling waters of confusion when you are called upon; you know how to navigate the worst of currents.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You will want to stay out of another's way, exerting as little influence as possible, while he or she gets the lay of the land.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's important that you stay the course today, whatever it may be. Even if you feel it is not right -- it must be acceptable.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You mustn't be inflexible; there are those who will want you to acquiesce to their demands -- but a compromise is more in order.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- That which is crystal clear must be your guiding light, no matter how simple or out of date it may be.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your dreams may have been full of images that will be revisited throughout your waking hours. Pay attention to those that are shadowy.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be playing catch-up throughout much of the day; be sure to make time for someone who has been waiting patiently for your attention.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have been formulating your current position for quite some time, though some may not fully understand where you got your information.
