Born today, you are far more romantic than almost anyone else born under your sign -- in a true, even old-fashioned, way. What romance means to you, more than love and sentimentality, is a kind of adventure and a love of life that is not universally embraced in the modern world. You seek a kind of experience, each and every day, that is memorable, rewarding, edifying and exciting -- one that can take you on some kind of journey that opens your eyes to new wonders in the world. Not for you the comparatively static world of office work; you'd rather be on the wing, flying here and there, chasing your dreams. Surely, this is not possible at every moment, but you can wish it so!
Your connection to the past is not purely academic, though your knowledge of dates, names, facts and figures may well be impressive. What is most important to you, however, is that you serve as a kind of "living bridge" from the past to the future.
Also born on this date are: Patrick Ewing, basketball player; Maureen McCormick, actress; Loni Anderson, actress; Neil Armstrong, astronaut, first man on the moon; John Huston, filmmaker and actor.
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 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may come under fire for something you did quite by accident. In any event, you can keep things from escalating, surely.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are not in the mood to relive something that wasn't all that enjoyable the first time! Let others know you'd rather sit this one out.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can rely on your own personal experience to see you through a difficult situation. Don't take things personally!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your patience is likely to run out for those who are unwilling to bring their all to a given situation. Some things you'll have to do alone.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Something new is coming your way, but take care you don't become so enamored of it right away that you neglect other issues in your care.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's a good day to relax just a bit, but you still have some things to do that only you know how to do. And remember, a deadline looms.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone is trying to get in touch with you, but he or she may not know quite how. Spread the word, and things will work out by day's end.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The free and honest exchange of information and opinions will be essential to your success. Progress is made on many fronts.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- It's important to know what is appropriate, given the time and the place -- and not just on one occasion, but all through the day.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be feeling a little disenchanted with something that was all the rage only yesterday. Enthusiasm will wax and wane like that.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It is likely going to be up to you to make sure everything is squared away in order for someone else to swing into action.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're going to want to make the best possible impression. You can put to use a lot that you learned around this time last year.
