BIRTHDAY GAL: Singer Gloria Estefan was born in Havana on this day in 1957. This talented birthday gal has won five Grammy awards both as a solo artist and with The Miami Sound Machine. She has a wide repertoire of pop hits to her credit including "Conga," "Anything for You" and "Don't Wanna Lose You." Next up for this popular vocalist will be a career move to the big screen, where she will play Connie Francis in the upcoming biopic "Who's Sorry Now?"
ARIES (March 21-April 19):
All that glitters might not be gold, but you have the sense and knowledge to know the difference - so, go for it! Romantic cravings may be satisfied by a trip to the theater with a favorite companion.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20):
Suspend your disbelief. People might find you capable and alluring even if you aren't. Sometimes it is good to get caught up in romantic fantasies and escape from the drab and ordinary.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20):
Spin-doctor your way to the top. Others will find your special talents more fascinating than usual. You can get by with a smooth line and will make a favorable impression on loved ones.
CANCER (June 21-July 22):
Ride the marvelous merry-go-round of love. Passions and personal pleasures may be on your mind tonight. Go ahead and buy that beautiful whatsit that you have been yearning to own.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22):
You've got that loving feeling. A brand new romance started under these sensual stars might be glamorous and exciting, but is not likely to result in marriage or white picket fences.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):
Be a smooth operator. Cast a romantic spell on that special someone and explore some intimate fantasies. A new hookup might be all glitz and little substance, but will be fun to play around with.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):
Glamour might be only skin deep. It is a good time to attend the theater, visit the carnival or dive into a temporary relationship for a quick fling. Soul mates prefer to stick close to home and snuggle.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
You are blind to the warts and drawbacks. There is a wee bit of magic in today's stars that makes loved ones appear in a more attractive light. Play a scene from "Romeo and Juliet."
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
Adapt to the change of circumstances like a chameleon. Capitalize on receiving favorable reviews in the business world. You could earn a reputation as a Don Juan or femme fatale.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
Confidence and charisma give you the edge and ability to take command. A special someone may be passionately persuasive later this evening. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
Don't linger at the bottom of the food chain. Restore your confidence by charming a co-worker or finding an alluring new heartthrob. Existing relationships get an infusion of passion.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20):
You've got bigger fish to catch. Don't settle for the mundane when you can easily set your sights on the superlative. A new amorous attraction might be dazzling only until the novelty wears off.
IF SEPTEMBER 1 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY:
Relationship issues that simmered in the background may have finally come to a head, so it is a good possibility that surprises and upsets are a thing of the past. If you are footloose and fancy free, look for the beginning of an important romance or a commitment in January. If you and your significant other need to rekindle your mutual ardor, take a vacation or escape on a second honeymoon. Since your attractions and talents are more noticeable, this is a good month to pursue a career change or ask for a promotion. Don't waste your talents or your cash in March when your generosity could get out of hand.
