Born today, you don't always do things in the most traditional, expected or accepted ways. You thrive on doing that which is the product of your own imagination and instinct working in tandem; whether it pleases others is far from the point. You can certainly make your way in a world constructed for the convenience of those who follow the rules and do what they are told, but you always want to bring far more than that to the party, and so you do! You have vivid dreams, and more often than not you will occupy yourself with working tirelessly to make those dreams come true.
You sometimes have little patience, and you have a rather wicked temper that flares when circumstances conspire to slow you down or restrict your movements in any way. It makes perfect sense that you lack patience for those who allow their own lives to be controlled in this way.
Also born on this date are: Tempestt Bledsoe, actress; Robert Cray, musician; Jerry Garcia, musician; Yves Saint Laurent, designer; Dom DeLuise, actor; Herman Melville, author; Francis Scott Key, poet; William Clark, explorer.
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.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will want to share something about yourself with someone who has only just arrived on the scene. You have certain suspicions.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can be in a better mood by day's end if you simply choose to follow your instincts where they lead you -- come what will!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Now is the time for you to admit to another that you are not really as prepared as you thought you were for the trial to come.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll want to keep an eye on a member of the opposite sex. You can learn a lot about yourself from assessing how you react to him or her.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're not content with staying on the outside; you want to go deeper and explore what lies far beneath the surface.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're likely to learn something from a colleague today that sets your head reeling -- because you simply had no idea!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- If you choose to bend or even break the rules, it's not likely that anyone else will know -- except the person who does it with you!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You have every reason in the world to want something you cannot have -- because, after all, who wouldn't want it? The question is "why?"
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Someone close to you may realize that you've not been following the rules at every turn. What happens now depends on your level of honesty.
