Born today, you are always willing to see where an opportunity will lead you, despite your preference for being in charge of your days and destiny. This willingness stems from your understanding that only by exploring the unknown will you be able to uncover that which can propel you forward or get you ahead. Past experience and current knowledge can take you only so far; eventually you must give yourself over to the unknown in order to reap the greatest benefit from the future. You are likely to travel many roads in your lifetime, and the choices you make will run the gamut from simple to complex -- but they will always affect you in significant ways. There is no such thing as a trivial decision in your life!
You are keenly interested in what is going on in the world, and you take news from near or far very personally -- to the point where you will surely feel compelled, sooner or later, to play a role in many newsworthy affairs. You want to do what you can for the little guy -- to help those who cannot help themselves.
Also born on this date are: Richard Gere, actor; Chris Tucker, actor; Van Morrison, singer; James Coburn, actor; Queen Rania of Jordan; Itzhak Perlman, violinist; Buddy Hackett, actor; Debbie Gibson, singer; Maria Montessori, educator; Eldridge Cleaver, activist and politician; Frederic March, actor; Hideo Nomo, baseball player; Edwin Moses, Olympic athlete.
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.
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to get most of what you bargained for, but one thing may still be lacking. You can provide that for yourself.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The simple things please you far more than the complex. Don't be tempted to make a mess of things in the name of experimentation!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can excite a partner with your plans, and inspire him or her to participate in a way that he or she never has before.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're tired of doing the same things, in the same ways, for the same reasons. This is a good day to shake it up and try something new!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You have never been in quite the position you are now. With it comes a new responsibility -- and many new choices.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your ability to stir up innocent fun can come in handy. Others are more than willing to join in the games you have in mind.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The view from where you are takes in more than you had thought, but you want to be sure you understand more than the big picture.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Search, and you will uncover something that both surprises and satisfies you in ways you had perhaps not expected.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to be the one to correct what is wrong because others have not recognized any errors whatsoever.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll have the chance to take a stand, and others will be impressed with your ability to embody both confidence and resolve.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone close to you is eager to up the ante. Are you ready to do more, with the promise that more will come your way in return?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be tempted to reach out to a friend with whom you are currently on the outs, but the gesture may actually be premature.
