HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Sunday, Sept. 4, 2011: This year, you open up to new situations more easily than in the past. Your instincts guide you on a level path financially.

You relax with Sagittarius.
A baby born today has a Sun in Virgo and a Moon in Sagittarius.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) • • • • • Enough of the same old routine; it’s time to take off for a day trip or meet a dear friend halfway. A change in scenery can do much for your spirit.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) • • • • You value a relationship, probably much more than many people. Today, make special time for a loved one, whether it is a lengthy meal, a movie or off enjoying a mutual hobby. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) • • • • Defer to others, knowing full well what you are dealing with. Someone you care a lot about might be off pursuing a special interest. You cannot change this person.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) • • • • Pace yourself and maintain a nice, easy stride. You benefit from a lack of pressure and a more open attitude. Play or let go with a child or loved one.
LEO (July 23-Sept 22) • • • • • Your playfulness emerges early on. Your popularity soars. A serious conversation could help you clear the air.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) • • • • Honor an obligation, although home is really where you want to be. Evaluate an expenditure involving property or your home.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) • • • • Try not to rain on anyone’s parade. Others really care about your opinions. Use caution. Someone you meet today might not be what he or she projects.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) • • • Use care with spending. It might not be worth the effort to try to appease someone who simply wants to throw a tantrum.
