Born today, you often seem to be keeping something hidden from those around you -- this may or may not be true, in fact. What is true, however, is that you are always keeping something in reserve -- which means, of course, that as hard as you work or play at any given time, you always have a little something left in the tank to rely on should the going get tough, or should you be required to step up and give a little more of yourself for some reason. You never like to feel as though you are running on empty, and for this reason you will learn never to put the pedal to the metal. It is this interesting and rather rare trait that doubtless has others wondering what you're not revealing!
There may be times when you do come off as rather distant or aloof, but the truth is that you are simply replenishing your stores of mental, physical and emotional energy. Even when you are by yourself, you are paying close attention to what is going on around you, and you can re-engage at the drop of a hat!
Also born on this date are: Charlize Theron, actress; David Duchovny, actor; Garrison Keillor, writer and humorist; Louis Leakey, anthropologist; Billie Burke, actress; Mata Hari, spy.
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.
THURSDAY, AUGUST 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can promote one or two new ideas that will have others clambering to take part in what is going on with you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You are taking advantage of opportunities as they arise, but you may not be taking advantage of all the tools available to you right now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- There's no harm in doing something for yourself at this time. The tougher things get, the more you have to take care of yourself!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You know better than anyone else what is good for you right now. You may, in fact, know what is best for those around you as well.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can expect others to gravitate toward you as your energy and vision prove inspiring to so many.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to do more today than is on the schedule in order to be prepared for something that is just around the next corner.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be surprised to learn what your role is going to be in an upcoming endeavor. You've certainly been cast against type!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may feel as though you are extraneous in some way, but the truth is that your turn to be essential is coming next.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be trying to resist something that is, in many ways, virtually irresistible. It's a good day to accept the inevitable.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may be questioning someone else's motives when, in fact, it is your own that may legitimately come under fire before the day is out.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Someone who is content to be in the background may be forced into the open, and you'll be in a position to help or hinder his or her efforts.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Not everyone is going to know what to say -- or how to say it. You can let everyone off the hook with a clever bit of diplomacy.
