Born today, you are sometimes tortured by aspects of your character that you are unable to control -- and this stems, of course, from a misunderstanding within yourself of what you are really about and what you're made of. You have been endowed with a great deal of confidence, but confidence itself is not self-knowledge -- and that's what you really need if you're ever going to come out from under the shadow of that part of yourself that seems to work against you time and again.
You are a positive and entertaining individual, and you enjoy interacting with others -- so long as you are free to say and do what comes naturally to you. When it comes to personal issues, you tend to hide them from others just as you hide them from yourself -- but in the end, you must remember the truth will come out sooner or later!
Also born on this date are: Charlie Sheen, actor; Shaun White, Olympic snowboarder; Ferdinand Porsche, engineer; Alan Ladd, actor; Valerie Perrine, actress; Eileen Brennan, actress.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What some may call a collector's item is of little value to you -- but you're likely to prize something that others discount outright.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It may be time for you to intervene and ensure that conflicting parties sort out their differences before things get way out of hand.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your judgment may be questioned by someone who isn't aware of what you are really trying to accomplish. Take the time to explain.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're eager to be reunited with someone who can be counted on to have your back when things get dicey. Make no move before you're ready.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The likelihood that you'll be able to do more than you expected is great -- but it all depends on your willingness to make an early start.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The waiting game actually proves advantageous to you today, as there are certain things you can do with the time that others cannot.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Excitement over what has yet to happen may be lessened somewhat today by what someone does in the meantime. Adjust expectations.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You don't need all you've provided for yourself of late; today may require that you dispense with anything you're willing to part with.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to do something uncomfortable in order to smooth the way for yourself later on. Do it quickly, and let it go!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A gift from someone far from home can prove useful to you almost right away -- though you may not recognize its value immediately.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Take care you don't ignore the instructions from a superior for too long, lest you be cut off from something you'd rather be doing.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're going to have to think of a more streamlined way of getting certain tasks completed today, or you're sure to run out of time.
