Born today, you are not always the kind to tend to your most immediate needs and responsibilities, often choosing to pursue a dream or work toward the accomplishment of a far-fetched, unlikely goal instead of focusing on those things that would make your daily life easier, better and more accomplished. What is it that makes you aim so high -- often sacrificing the little things that make others happy? You are certain that you have a "destiny," and this compels you to dream big dreams and pursue them, even when they are not at all realistic.
You are known for the bold statement, the grand gesture and the utterly unexpected action. Still, there are times, as suggested above, in which you were best to focus on the little things, simply in order to get by. Sometimes, indeed, you make things more difficult for yourself than they have to be.
Also born on this date are: Pink, singer; Patsy Cline, singer; Jonathan Taylor Thomas, actor; Peter Sellers, actor and comic; Sid Caesar, comedian.
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.
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your argument today is not with anyone in particular, but with a great many who support a certain ill-advised point of view.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can be a bit more flexible when it comes to working with those who have a different method from your own. Your goals are the same.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Options you face today are attractive, but you may not be compelled to explore all of them fully; one in particular is for you right now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're not yet ready to put on display the project you have been working on; wait until surrounding forces support your efforts.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be watched today, but not by those who are usually critical of your efforts. This is nothing to feel anxious about.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may feel free to express yourself with a bit more abandon than usual -- but even then you're not likely to challenge the status quo.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A few obstacles are likely to pop up today, but the first two may prove inconsequential; it's the third you have to worry about!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're interested not only in what must be done, but why -- and especially when you are dealing with orders that are handed down by others.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Take care that you do not succumb to vanity. You'll want to be confident, sure, but maintain a realistic view of yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be fooled by what is presented to you in a straightforward manner; you must be more concerned with what is behind the scenes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can share your thoughts with one who disagrees with you without risking a serious conflict today; it's all in how you present them.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have allies in places that may surprise you today. Feel free to venture out of your more comfortable haunts, and explore other ground.
