Born today, you are not so set in your ways that you insist on doing a thing a certain way when all evidence points to a better way of doing it. You are not so confident that you cannot be convinced that you are in the wrong when the evidence clearly proves it. You are not so strong-willed that you cannot be talked into doing something that you know will be good for you. Yet you are strong-willed, confident and set in your ways! What this means, of course, is that you are moderate as far as your personality is concerned -- that you are able to live in the world and navigate its ever-changing seas while being true to yourself and learning from others as well.
You are at your best, perhaps, when you are facing a situation that no one has ever faced before; there are potentially more of those to face than you might think! It is then that you really dig deep and apply tremendous energy, will and creativity to the situation at hand to see that it can be controlled, harnessed and exploited for personal gain.
Also born on this date are: Antonio Banderas, actor; Rosanna Arquette, actress; Jimmy Dean, singer and sausage mogul; Eddie Fisher, singer; Rhonda Fleming, actress; Herbert Hoover, U.S. president.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- An argument may ensue as a result of a single misinterpreted message that is allowed to get into the wrong hands.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- There are no accidents today, only those developments that have not been expected. All, however, find a cause in what you are doing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You must work harder to anticipate the consequences of your actions, especially those that go against the grain.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A solution is staring you in the face, but you may not be ready to do what you must in order to apply it to the problem at hand.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can afford to do a little more to help those around you. Their success is, after all, your success.
