Born today, you are not always easy to pin down. In other words, you are often so mercurial and inconsistent that it is difficult even for those who know you best to label you as one thing or another. Indeed, though you might appear to be one thing at one moment, you can turn right around and act in a completely different way the next -- surprising others and, at times, causing them to shake their heads in disbelief. You must take care that you never rub anyone the wrong way so much that he or she turns away from you for good. There are times when this may be a very real danger.
What you do and say is likely to be remembered by many, and this may well secure you a place in history. Not everything you accomplish is likely to be on a grand scale, however, so you must learn to find satisfaction in accomplishments that are small, subtle and highly nuanced. Try too hard, and you may well fall on your face.
Also born on this date are: Charlie Sheen, actor; Valerie Perrine, actress; Eileen Brennan, actress; Alan Ladd, actor.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Minute adjustments can yield major rewards, but take care that you don't get lost in the details. The big picture matters, too!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can't overlook the way things seem to others. Do what you can to allay fears by saying and doing only exactly what you mean.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's a good time to take a little time for yourself and family members. A gentle reminder of what is most important comes just in time.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It may be more difficult to get your horse out of the gate today than it will be to go the distance once the race is underway.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll discover a great many things that could use your personal touch today. Others are more than willing to let you do what you will.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be able to get a great deal done while you are waiting to do something else. The timetable is more flexible than usual.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You and a friend may be suffering from a misconception that arises from faulty timing. You may have to stand in for another.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll be given liberty to do things in your own unusual way, but there are certainly liberties that even you won't want to take.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're likely to get a flat refusal in response to your request for a favor. The reasons are complex, and they may elude you for the time being.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A new phase is beginning, but you will want to approach it slowly and subtly rather than jumping in with both feet.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Getting everything to work together will be something of a balancing act, and it will be up to you to adjust the dials and knobs.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You have a way of sneaking up on others so that they aren't fully prepared for all you have to offer. It's a glorious surprise!
