Born today, you consider yourself quite common in many respects, yet you are able to accomplish great things in life merely by putting your best foot forward, taking advantage of opportunities as they arise, and working harder than others to see that your goals are met and that your dreams do, indeed, come true. While you do enjoy the good things in life, you are also able to be quite content with the simple things. You cherish the relationships that you will foster throughout your lifetime, and you will sacrifice any kind of professional gain to maintain them. You would hate to let a friendship wither and die simply because you didn't give it enough attention -- and so, of course, you never will. Your friends provide you with strength, inspiration and confidence.
You know how to appeal to all kinds of tastes, but when it comes to your own likes and dislikes, you can be rather finicky and fickle -- indeed, what you truly like may run toward the unusual or even odd. When it comes to love, you require a great deal of trust -- more than most -- and only a person who likes the things you like as much as you do will ever fit the bill!
Also born on this date are: Jeff Foxworthy, comedian; Chris Christie, politician; Macy Gray, singer; Swoosie Kurtz, actress; Jo Anne Worley, actress and comedian; Idris Elba, actor; Tony DiTerlizzi, artist; Rosie Perez, actress; Elizabeth Vargas, news anchor; Jane Curtin, actress; Roger Waters, singer and musician; Max Schreck, actor; Jane Addams, sociologist and activist.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may receive an offer that will make you wonder whether things have really been going as planned. You'll have trouble saying no.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A surprise will hit you hard and have you bottling things up inside for too long. By day's end, you must be ready to express yourself again.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can win the praise you seek by doing what comes most naturally to you -- but one item left undone can ruin everything.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What goes up must come down -- including your own estimation of yourself! You may find your self-esteem at an uncommonly low ebb for a time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You don't want to deal with anyone who is unwilling to face you directly. Backroom negotiations are simply not your cup of tea.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may discover that you are not, after all, afraid of something that you've been trying to avoid for quite some time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A conflict will arise between you and someone who has shared much with you in the past but who is currently breaking with tradition.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Don't let anyone speak for you! You'll want to express yourself fully, but you certainly want to wait until the right time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- In all things, you will be very near the center -- but not exactly so. This will allow you to see matters from various perspectives.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Background activities can prove much more substantial than anything that takes you to the fore. You know what's really going on.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not have all the answers, but you certainly know which questions to ask in order to get people moving in the right direction.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- There are some who are eager to see you at your wit's end, but that's not likely to happen if you follow your instincts at all times.
