Born today, you are not always able to control your appetites, desires, compulsions and yearnings, and there are times when yielding to them can bring you face to face with very real danger -- but there is something exciting to you about dangling from a metaphorical cliff, especially when you have put yourself in that position. You seem to be quite fearless, and your behavior in high-risk situations is often bold and aggressive, where others would be far more cautious -- but that's how you live your life. You like to dance on a very high ledge and challenge fate by doing what others would never do. There is a method to your madness, however: In taking such risks, you are striving to be the best that you can be.
When it comes to love, you are a complicated individual indeed, for you do not force yourself into any accepted mode of behavior. At the same time, you expect others to satisfy you in certain ways that you dictate quite clearly. Some may think this is unfair -- but then, they are clearly not for you.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A friend's promise remains in your heart and mind even as you realize that much has changed that may prevent it from being kept.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can offer assistance all you want, but as long as a certain friend doesn't want to accept it, there is little you can do.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may choose to invite someone to take part in a project you know you cannot complete entirely on your own. He or she can open doors.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can fix a problem that others have been working on for quite some time with little or no luck. What do you have that they don't?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can face almost any situation with a positive outlook and good humor. When you feel threatened directly, however, all that may change.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The skills you demonstrate can win you a great deal of admiration from others, but you won't derail a rival's competitive designs.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A reunion of sorts is in the offing. You must be ready to talk about things you have wanted to avoid for quite some time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can do much to honor someone important to you without attracting any undue attention to yourself. A tradition is in the making.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may find yourself facing down a major threat before the day is out. You have what it takes to hang on and do what must be done.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're at a crossroads of sorts, and you must be sure that you know where you've been before you can think about where you are going.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You will have chances to experiment in a number of ways, but a friend may warn you about a danger you don't yet recognize.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Someone you know is on a roll, and you mustn't stand in his or her way. The outcome will tell you much about your immediate prospects.
