Born today, you are not always one of the most sociable individuals born under a sign known for sociability. You are certainly affable and quite friendly when you need to be, but you are sometimes simply so shy that you behave in a manner that is rather aloof and, to some, quite off-putting. The balance between the private you and the public you is something you must always work on -- at work and at play. Only when you are resting can you simply be who you are in the moment without attracting any critical attention.
On at least one occasion -- and a significant one it will surely be -- you are likely to step out of your rather limited comfort zone and stake your claim to "greatness," or whatever that overused term may mean to you.
Also born on this date are: Freddie Mercury, singer; Michael Keaton, actor; Rose McGowan, actress; Raquel Welch, actress; Bob Newhart, actor and comedian; Cathy Guisewite, cartoonist.
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.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Despite the adage, honesty may not be the best policy -- at least as the day begins. Timing is everything; don't "confess" until you're ready.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are eager to make a change, but you're not sure that others will agree to what you have in mind. You may soon have to go it alone.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your ability to explain a complex issue in simple, straightforward terms will serve you well today. Others want to hear what you have to say!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be tempted to do something you've promised never to do. Study current trends; it may be your promise no longer applies.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can get what you want today, but you may have to go through unusual channels. Someone takes you by surprise by revealing a secret.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may enjoy a rather relaxing day, but there are certain events that threaten to upset you -- and they might, if you let them. Stay aloof!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Working from a distance can provide you with the solace you need to get certain things done, but other things require a more convenient location.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Someone is eager to know if something that has occurred was merely coincidence or the result of a concerted effort. You know what is true.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be responsible for much that happens today, but errors are not likely to be your fault. Don't lay blame; just fix the mistakes!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you remember today may not be all that helpful to someone who's trying to determine what really happened recently -- at first.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're facing long odds at this time. Don't squabble with someone who is really talking about something very different. Make a plan.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are in need of a lift, and only one certain someone is likely to give it to you. You must be willing to share some private info, however.
