HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, Sept. 2, 2013: This year you have more drive and energy than usual. You have what it takes to hit a home run! Sometimes you are a bit reticent to share your thoughts and feelings because of the responses you have received in the past. Take some risks. If single, make a point to get to know someone well before even thinking about committing. If attached, both of you need to devote more one-on-one time to the relationship. Leo can be demanding. A baby born today has a sun in Virgo and a moon in Leo all day.
