Born today, you are almost always able to follow through on anything to which you have committed yourself, though there will surely be times in which this is more difficult than others -- usually because you are going through some kind of emotional upheaval that makes focusing on the task at hand almost impossible. Indeed, though you have what it takes to succeed over the long haul, your one weakness may perhaps be a certain brand of emotional vulnerability -- that strikes, oddly enough, when you are riding a wave of success and enjoying the fruits of your labors. It stems from a crisis of confidence -- or a feeling you don't deserve what you have won.
Also born on this date are: Paul "Pee-wee Herman" Reubens, actor; Barbara Bach, actress and model; Tuesday Weld, actress; Daryl Dragon, musician; Martha Raye, actress and entertainer; Lyndon B. Johnson, U.S. president.
You can be quite shy, and your natural tendency is to avoid large social situations in which you may feel you do not know what to say or how to act. You are most comfortable, usually, among small groups of people who know you well. You don't always make the best first impression.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
TUESDAY, AUGUST 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may run into someone who has plans for you -- but are you really able to drop what you are doing and change course midstream?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can arrive at a place of harmony and contentment -- but only if you do what is required of you before it is considered overdue.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can show those around you that you have, indeed, learned a valuable lesson from something that happened to you only a short time ago.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're in the mood for some old-fashioned fun, and someone knows just how to satisfy you -- but with a surprising twist.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A strong start gives you confidence, but you mustn't think that you can't be overtaken. Pay attention to what the competition is doing.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll want to look at things more closely than usual today in order to get every bit of information available to you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You know just what you want, and you know just where it is -- but getting from here to there may prove more difficult than expected.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be looking forward to doing something quite particular in your spare time, but external forces seem to conspire against you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Pay attention to all environmental signs; you can't afford to be caught off guard if the weather suddenly becomes inclement.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're going to want to do all you can to get ahead at this time, as you are expecting something of a slowdown a little later on.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll remember something you did quite a while ago -- and that will likely inspire you to do something new and quite remarkable.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may think that things are heating up in a way that cannot be controlled -- but someone you know holds the key. Stay close!
