Omarr's Daily Astrological Forecast September 3, 2011

BIRTHDAY GAL: Actress Paz de la Huerta was born in New York City on this date in 1984. This birthday gal played the steamy mistress Lucy Danziger on the first season of the hit series "Boardwalk Empire." She's also made appearances on "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "The Practice." Her film work includes "The Cider House Rules" and "Enter the Void."

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Take it easy and enjoy what you already have. It isn't necessary to go on a buying spree, as what you need the most is probably right in your own backyard. Don't get in a competition to outdo a mate.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You may have better judgment than you think. The people you want to hang around with might not be reachable, but luckily, the people you can contact are much better for you in the long run.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Accentuate the positive. Flaunt your unique qualities to get attention and stand out in a crowd. Others will relish your provocative remarks and forgive signs of aggressiveness that are sometimes unacceptable.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): If you are upright and forthright, everything will turn out all right. Count on your inner guidance system to lead you in the right direction where money, investments and purchases are concerned.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The lion flaunts his mane. You are proud to have nice things, but just as proud to be surrounded by people who love you. This gives you better odds of success because you build up rather than tear down.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Life is about learning. You have learned by now that you can't compromise about principles, just about terms. By being the most true-blue person in any group, you will earn the respect that you deserve.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It is impossible for trouble to gain a foothold if you remain direct, honest and sincere. Keep an eye out for opportunities to perform a good deed or for a chance to better yourself through educational experiences.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Smile and the world smiles with you. Display a positive attitude and you will attract good things and opportunities. Make financial or investment decisions; a good friend could provide encouragement.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't waste all your time on having a good time. Improved circumstances may make you more ambitious or tempt you to press your luck. Things go easily today so put key plans in motion.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Take what comes. Those who are drawn closer now are in harmony with your deepest and most central purposes. Spread your wings and explore limitless possibilities where relationships are concerned.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Know exactly what your goals are and who your friends are. Ask yourself if something or someone makes you happy, as that is the true test of worthiness. Romantic attractions may set off fireworks.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Keep your career or job separate from your love life. Romance could be at the top of your personal agenda. You are more attractive than usual, but don't let your guard down in inappropriate situations.

IF SEPTEMBER 3 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You are willing to cooperate with others and often turn the other cheek over and over again. Opportunities to improve your situation give you a chance to tackle life with a more optimistic attitude. Don't be so humble that you ignore wise advice or refuse the rewards you deserve. Look for significant opportunities in the next several weeks when you can climb to a higher rung on the ladder of success. The blessings that come your way now and then again next March, may offer permanent benefits even if you seem to slip backwards in December. Keep heading in the right direction and a romantic partner will make a few of your fantasies come true after the new year.
