Born today, you believe that all people are created equal and that success and failure should be the results of an individual's efforts, not the product of any unfair disadvantages he or she might have had to bear. You believe everyone has a right to be heard, and you will often work to ensure that others are not overlooked or ignored. You know how to rally others around a common cause, and you can inspire them to do great things. You are a born leader, but you don't always have to be in the spotlight; you are more than happy to take a position behind the scenes and let others play the major roles.
You treat others fairly and demand equal treatment at the hands of others. If you are wronged, you will do something about it; if you wrong another, it is almost always unavoidable in some way, and you are quick to make reparations. You know quality when you see it -- in people and things.
Also born on this date are: Adam Sandler, actor and comedian; Michelle Williams, actress; Hugh Grant, actor; Colonel Sanders, fried chicken mogul; Tom Wopat, actor; Otis Redding, singer; Cliff Robertson, actor; Rachel Hunter, model; Henry Thomas, actor; Goran Visnjic, actor; Joe Theismann, football player.
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may face more adversity today than you had expected; your inner strength and sense of resolve are nearing an all-time high.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Where you are and where you are going may be much closer together at this time than you know. The last few steps shouldn't take any time at all.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- One piece of the puzzle falls into place today, but that doesn't mean that you're ready to solve it. Take time to consider all options.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may attract attention in a way that is very different from what you had intended. Others will want to take part in what happens as a result.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You have no reason to try to block any person or event from your memory at this time; indeed, trying to remember can prove most helpful.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your offer of gratitude to someone who did so much to get you where you are will mean much to others as well as the intended recipient.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A minor sacrifice on your part is likely to pay off in a major way today -- but take care that your loss isn't entirely a permanent one.
