Born today, you always seem to have something in the works -- some plan, some scheme, some strategy or merely some form of amusement for yourself, which you usually share with those around you. You are perhaps one of the most pleasantly social of those born under your sign, though you are certainly at your best when you are in charge in some manner -- and when things are going your way. You can become restless and frustrated when you are held back, whether by circumstances or by a rival who actively seeks to stand in the way of your progress. You work very well with others in the main, however, and you actually prefer collaborative endeavors over those that require solitary effort.
You are likely to go through one or two tough times in your life, in which your emotional strength or mental acuity may be challenged in some way. Your instinct for survival is great, however, and your creative drive will surely keep you from succumbing altogether.
Also born on this date are: M. Night Shyamalan, filmmaker; Andy Warhol, pop artist; Robert Mitchum, actor; Lucille Ball, actress, comedian, producer.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You don't want to reveal too much too soon. Put the needs of another ahead of your own, and everyone should remain in careful balance.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You will be in charge of pulling together everyone else's contributions to ensure that a project gets off the ground according to plan.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're likely to stumble into something that affords you more time and freedom to do something you've wanted to do for a long time.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Choose your words carefully; everyone is feeling a little tense, perhaps, and a misunderstanding may lead to something worse.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can do something nice for someone else in return for something nice done for you yesterday or the day before.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to work more quickly than usual to meet a deadline that, quite frankly, you may have forgotten was fast approaching!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You'll be waiting on someone else as things come together more slowly than expected. There's no reason to become nervous -- yet.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be surprised by someone's unusually frank talk. You can be sure that it is meant to be taken honestly, and with gratitude.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have to step in and calm a disagreement that is fast becoming something for everyone to worry about.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must try to remember that there is a time and a place for a certain kind of talk -- and today is certainly not it!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- All anyone around you is asking for is fair treatment. You can do much to ensure that everyone is, indeed, treated fairly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Repetition allows you to get a somewhat new set of behaviors under your skin. Future success depends on such ease and comfort.
