Born today, you are one of those quick and eager individuals who is often the first to jump into the pool when the whistle blows. You are driven to perform, and to perform well, and your success, ultimately, is no accident. You are diligent, tenacious and always eager to learn everything you can about a given endeavor. You are no daredevil; you work hard to prepare yourself for virtually any eventuality -- and the proof of this is in your performance when you are under the gun.
You do have your thoughtful side. Your instincts and your intellect are far more equally balanced than some might think -- and far more so than most born under a sign known for such balanced moderation. You feel deeply, you think hard, and you understand completely.
Also born on this date are: Dominique Moceanu, Olympic gymnast; Martina Hingis, tennis player; Jenna Elfman, actress; Eric Stoltz, actor; Fran Drescher, actress; Marilyn McCoo, singer; Johnny Mathis, singer; Angie Dickinson, actress; Truman Capote, writer; Deborah Kerr, actress; Buddy Rich, jazz drummer.
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.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're sure to be distracted, but a friend or loved one knows how to keep you on track. Financial assistance may be offered, too.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It doesn't really matter in what order you do things today -- but what does matter is that you do them all in a careful and detailed way.
