Born today, you are never without an opinion -- about the world in which you live, the people with whom you share it and the things that they do, day after day. Some might call you "judgmental," and others even "intolerant," but the fact is that you are never harsh or unfair in your estimation of others. You seem to have an unusual grasp of other people's inner workings -- what makes them tick -- and you can use that knowledge for either good or ill. This, of course, depends entirely on you! The stars have given you the capacity for either, and whether you choose to be ruled by your better angels or to embrace the dark side will be more the result of a conscious decision than any invisible influence.
You have a fine mind, and you can think your way through virtually any puzzle. You are also highly creative: You know how to think outside the box and come up with unconventional solutions to problems that would otherwise prove quite stubborn. You are widely admired for your mental abilities.
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.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- How you put things down in writing will prove quite important. Make sure your notes are accurate and complete. Avoid shortcuts!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be tempted by someone who thinks he or she knows you well, but in fact it will be revealed that there's a large disconnect.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not know where the finish line is until you have already crossed it, so be sure to keep up the pace until you know you've won!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can put things together in a way that reveals an entirely new "big picture." This revelation will soon be quite valuable.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You want to give yourself choices that can each lead to a positive outcome. Avoid going through doors obscured by any sort of mystery.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The choices you have to make seem simple on the surface, but one or two may require you to dig deeply before committing one way or the other.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- It's not necessary for you to understand another's motives, as long as you understand the true intent of his or her actions.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be contacted today by someone who wants to bring you on as a consultant of sorts. Your expertise is needed!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be more excited about the resurfacing of something old than the discovery of something new. The familiar brings comfort, too.
