Born today, you are something of an expert when it comes to exploiting even the smallest grain of opportunity and turning it to your full advantage. While this is sure to give you a distinct advantage in both your professional affairs and your personal life, it isn't necessarily a guarantee of success in either area, for there are many variables that you will have to contend with and address as you make your way in the world -- and it's in that vein that you may encounter trouble. You are not always the most subtle, cooperative or agreeable individual, and this can hold you back at times and keep you from achieving your primary objectives.
You enjoy doing things that are met with surprise by those around you; there's nothing you enjoy more than a wide-eyed reaction from someone who is watching you do what you do.
Also born on this date are: Buddy Holly, singer; Corbin Bernsen, actor; Evan Rachel Wood, actress; Toby Jones, actor; Chrissie Hynde, singer; Julie Kavner, actress; Tom Everett Scott, actor; Elia Kazan, director.

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may start to see a lot of big plans fall apart unless you are able to get a commitment from a friend to kick things into high gear.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may find yourself the target of criticism for something that was not your doing -- but you can correct people's misconceptions very quickly.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are likely to stumble today because of an inability to see dangers that lie ahead. You will learn quickly -- and recover quickly, too.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are full of questions, and by day's end, you'll have many of the answers you seek. One query, however, proves unusually stubborn. Be patient.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll likely hear much the same thing from all observers today, but you'll still want to do what you've planned -- despite the warnings.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Don't let yourself get sucked into a conflict with someone who is merely trying to "get at you." It's a good day to take the high road.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may find yourself waiting for something that never comes your way today. Fortunately, this will be time you can get back later.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll want to balance the intellectual and the instinctive today; it's important for both natural processes to work closely together.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The more in sync you are with someone far from home, the more satisfying your day will be -- especially if communication is established.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not be able to move things forward as planned without the help of someone who knows exactly what you're trying to accomplish.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not feel quite right during the first part of the day; there's an unknown something to which you are not paying enough attention.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- A situation develops very quickly today and requires you to step up -- even though you may not feel ready. You can surprise yourself!
