Born today, you are something of a force of nature. Once you have set your sights on a goal, you will never quit until you reach it. Your talents are many, and you will benefit from knowing what you are meant to do with your life at a very early age. It is when you first discover your true calling that you will face your first and possibly only life crisis -- for if you follow the right path, you will certainly be destined for success; if you do not, you may simply fall into anonymity without staking your claim to fortune or notoriety of any kind. You don't want to ever feel that you were meant for something that you could have laid claim to early in life.
You attract a great deal of attention wherever you go, and yet when you are at home you may be one of the most unassuming of individuals. You don't always take part in the big battles in life, but you feel strongly about the issues that affect you, and you often wear your heart on your sleeve and freely advertise your alliances.
Also born on this date are: Freddie Mercury, singer; Michael Keaton, actor; Rose McGowan, actress; Raquel Welch, actress; Bob Newhart, actor and comedian; George Lazenby, actor; John Cage, composer; Jesse James, outlaw; Cathy Guisewite, cartoonist.

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can avoid most frustrations today, but not all. Be sure to leave yourself some room to improvise when you plan your next few steps.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Inside or out, you're likely to encounter the same basic issues because they all spring from you -- no matter where you may be.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may find yourself attracted to someone who is definitely "off limits" -- but today, you can flirt a little and not set off any alarms.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Take care that you don't try to put another in his or her place in a way that could backfire on you. You don't want to be at a loss later on.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can lead others with skill and vision today, but success depends on their willingness to follow. You must do more to provide real inspiration.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Keeping all of your responsibilities straight may be something of a juggling act today. Friends know well enough to stay out of the way!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're not going to keep silent when you feel strongly about an issue that others are misinterpreting. Your reaction sets the tone.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can guide another through treacherous territory today and learn enough about the journey to avoid dangers tomorrow.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You feel that you are nearing the fulfillment of your destiny today -- but you have much farther to go, surely! Don't stop prematurely.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The more certain you are about something, the more likely it is you will miss the mark in some way. Not everything is crystal clear.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A change in the order of things has you off balance for a while today, until you realize just where it leaves you -- and what's now possible.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A highly anticipated encounter proves somewhat bittersweet, as you are left to cope with issues you didn't think would arise.
