Born today, you do not always feel as though you truly belong; you often have the sense that you hail from somewhere far away, and that you have been striving throughout your lifetime to get back home. This is, perhaps, overly dramatic -- but it touches on something that is profoundly true for you: You want nothing more than to feel like you are home, no matter where you are. You are quick to settle in as best you can, no matter where you go; you are not the kind to leave things in a suitcase when you travel, if you can help it. You are a natural nester; comfort is essential to you.
There is a certain loneliness that goes along with this yearning for home; at its best, it gives you the strength to do things in a completely autonomous fashion, but at its worst, it can make you feel isolated -- and even resentful of those around you.
Also born on this date are: LeAnn Rimes, singer; Jack Black, actor; Jason Priestley, actor; Shania Twain, singer; Scott Hamilton, Olympic ice skater; Daniel Stern, actor; David Soul, actor and singer; Ben Gazzara, actor; Donald O'Connor, actor, singer, dancer; Charles Boyer, actor; Leo Tolstoy, author; Johann von Goethe, writer.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You are eager to set off in a new direction, but you must stay the course until you have tied up one significant loose end.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Facts and figures require some study; you are not quite up to speed, but once you are, there will be few who can really keep up with you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You must be ready to support whatever position you claim as your own. You can't expect others to accept your views without question.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A combination of influences will have you trying to go in two directions at once -- and for a while, you can do this with some success.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may realize that you are responsible for more than can be outlined or annotated. Trust your instincts and don't settle for easy answers.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The instructions you receive may not be quite what you expected; you can be glad that your preparations were so thorough!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You have set your sights quite high, and you can reach all that way if you are careful to find stable footing before making the attempt.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Symbolism of all kinds will be significant to you throughout the day. Certain number and letter combinations attract your attention.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Loved ones are feeling the need for increased communication at this time; you can do them one better by dropping in unexpectedly!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can't afford to let a minor conflict go untended today, or it will almost surely develop into something significant.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You've been evolving at a steady pace of late, but today you may have reason to put a stop to a certain kind of personal growth -- for a while.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Progress is all but guaranteed today; what can make the difference is your unwillingness to come to what may seem a silly agreement.
