Born today, you can be rather bombastic and colorful in your manners and speech. Though there are surely those who will make fun of you when they have the chance, the truth is that you know how ridiculous you can sometimes be, and you are often the one laughing at yourself more loudly than anyone else. You have a big personality, and you thrive on living large. Take care, however! You can fall victim to overindulgence of all sorts, and this can lead to serious dangers. You must never underestimate the risks you take when you start enjoying too much of a good thing!
You are not always credible, yet others almost always want to listen to what you have to say, whether or not they can believe you. Truth be told, whether they can believe you or not is of little interest to you at times. When you are putting on a show, fact and fiction are often freely interchanged.
Also born on this date are: Victoria Jackson, actress and comedian; Lance Ito, judge; Peter O'Toole, actor; James Baldwin, novelist; Carroll O'Connor, actor; Myrna Loy, actress.
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.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may realize that something you've been trying to avoid for quite some time is actually something you very much want!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll want to jump into a new situation with complete abandon, but only after you've done a little homework and prepared adequately.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Something that seems like an accident may be nothing of the kind; you'll want to look carefully at everyone's motives.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You and a friend may be at cross-purposes through the first part of the day, but once you both realize it, you can rectify the situation quickly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll want to look at things more carefully than usual before making any decisions that affect others as well as yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You know just where you're headed, but you may be somewhat frustrated by the pace, which is slower than you had anticipated.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Things are likely to change for you very soon -- not in every respect, but just enough to renew your excitement and provide new opportunities.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have some difficulty accessing information that is usually right there at your fingertips. Don't get frustrated!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Seeking a new way to do something old and familiar may be an unwise use of energy; the way you used to do it still works just fine.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be surprised to learn that someone close to you is really not at all what he or she seems to be! Other mysteries are revealed, too.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're likely to find yourself moving in two different directions at once -- something you hardly thought was possible, in fact!
