Born today, you have been endowed with a great many talents, but your ability to think through even the most complex of issues and understand them inside and out will surely be your most outstanding trait in both your personal life and your professional affairs. You like being held in high esteem, and you know how to position yourself so that others look up to you. You are able, like so many other Virgo natives, to maintain a realistic self-image, even while doing things that set you apart from the crowd and attract a great deal of attention.
Also born on this date are: Colin Firth, actor; Arnold Palmer, golfer; Ryan Phillippe, actor; Karl Lagerfeld, designer; Roger Maris, baseball player; Randy Johnson, baseball player; Bill O'Reilly, TV host; Chris Columbus, director.
This doesn't mean, of course, that you have no ambitions; on the contrary, you see yourself enjoying a great deal of success and climbing the ladder to fame and fortune at a healthy pace. But you do not let your ambitions run away with you; you are always willing to work hard for what you want, and you never expect something for nothing.
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.
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're trying to do something in a brand-new way, but not everyone will respond as you might hope. You meet resistance from an old friend.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can avoid conflict by going about your business in a manner that attracts little or no attention. Do your best to avoid setting off alarms.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You discover something about yourself that you may not like very much -- at first. A friend gives you perspective, and your judgment shifts.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone with whom you are at odds changes the conditions of the playing field on which you are battling. This may give you the advantage!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can do much with little today. Take care that you do not squander what resources you have at your disposal. A message arrives from afar.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your memories are chock-full of imagery that can mean much to you once you have brought them into sharper focus. Dreams may be misleading.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Today's success borrows much from yesterday's efforts. Seek a more direct route to your intended destination. Don't sweat the small stuff.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have overlooked something yesterday that you can pay attention to today. Someone may take offense, but you'll do what is right.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's time for you to reach out on your own toward something that holds value only for you -- but a conflict with a friend may result.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Take care that you do not overthink a current problem, or it will seem much greater than it really is. Focus on the central issue.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your attempt to get to the heart of the matter may backfire today as you reveal certain elements that increase a situation's emotional impact.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You want to do the right thing, certainly, but today you may not hear the signals that tell you how that can be done. Listen more closely!
