THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It may prove more complicated than usual today to put your best foot forward. A critic becomes a supporter before nightfall.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There is much you can do today to back up your contentions as you try to persuade others that your cause is worth fighting for.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The straightest path is the one for you today. You're in no mood to go here, there and everywhere simply to do what should be very simple.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What are you getting yourself into? That's the question that you must answer today before you commit yourself to someone's project.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll see through someone's attempt to get the better of you today -- and that's a very good thing, as there may be a good deal of money at stake.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may think that you can be everywhere at once, and you may have even planned on it, but the day will prove you wrong -- in this and only this.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may find yourself going in circles with others as you all try to determine the best course of action in the face of changing variables.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Are you ready to do what you are told today? You don't want to answer back, crack wise or display a sullen attitude. Get it together!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Progress is smooth today, if only moderate in scope. The method is likely to matter more at this time than what you walk away with.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You understand much that someone else doesn't -- but that doesn't mean you have the advantage just yet. Actions speak louder than words.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your energetic and positive approach proves essential to the success of all those who have hitched their wagons to yours at this time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Something that isn't good for you today may be unavoidable, but you can make the best of a situation that someone else would call "bad."
