Born today, you have a way of communicating that attracts audiences of all kinds, from the highborn and erudite to the most common among men, and you don't have any favorites, for you genuinely enjoy what each brings to the party. The fact that you are comfortable among all manner of individuals is one of your greatest strengths, and will surely serve you well in all endeavors. Most important is that you follow a path that stems from your own heart and instincts, unconcerned about any sort of prize or reward. For you, personal expression is often reward enough! You don't always seek remuneration, praise or any other compensation for your efforts, for the effort itself rewards you and feeds your soul. Remember, however, that you must also feed yourself and your family and keep a roof over your head!
You are no stranger to controversy, for you will talk about anything and do anything that seems right in the moment -- and not everyone will take this well. Indeed, those who are threatened by your ease and candor may well try to knock you down in some way, and you must take steps to protect yourself.
Also born on this date are: Idris Elba, actor; Elizabeth Vargas, journalist; Jeff Foxworthy, comedian; Chris Christie, politician; Macy Gray, singer; Swoosie Kurtz, actress; Jo Anne Worley, actress and 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.
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- There are many reasons to continue along your current path, but your reason for changing course is more compelling still.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don't give friends and loved ones the same old story. Solid reasons are one thing, but flimsy excuses are best avoided altogether.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are assuming that a new friend or partner will respond to events the way everyone else does, but this may be erroneous. Don't prejudge.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Now that you know precisely where you stand with regard to another's expectations, you can begin maneuvering effectively.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You don't have to put all your eggs in one basket in order to send the message that you are fully committed. Be more prudent than that!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The promise of something long in the making is finally coming to fruition. You surely have some preparations to make before the payoff!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You and a partner may have stylistic differences, but they shouldn't be allowed to grow into anything that could cause a rift.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Putting yourself in another's shoes may not be as easy as usual, but once you manage it, you'll see things for what they really are.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You must insist that someone in your inner circle follow protocol. There's very little room for improvisation -- if any.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can share something quite special with someone who has been on the periphery for a while. The two of you have an unacknowledged bond.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must be sure that your reasons for doing a certain difficult thing are sound and valid. How much are you getting out of it?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You must keep yourself from responding to someone's untoward behavior in a way that is unsettling or out of proportion.
