Born today, you are perhaps your own favorite topic of conversation; however, you are in no way unrealistic about this, and you understand that not everyone will share your enthusiasm about yourself! Still, when you are the center of attention and people are talking about you, you are in seventh heaven, and you will do what you can to subtly prolong the experience as much as possible. There are times when you may not even know you are promoting your own self-centered agenda, but it is a constant. It is important that you try to remember this: Sometimes there are, in fact, other things to talk about!
You are the kind to overcome hardships and disadvantages throughout your lifetime, particularly when you are young and just starting out. You don't like taking "no" for an answer, especially when it stands in the way of professional advancement. You will do what you are compelled to do, come what may.
Also born on this date are: Halle Berry, actress; Earvin "Magic" Johnson, basketball player; Gary Larson, cartoonist; Susan Saint James, actress; Steve Martin, actor, writer, comedian; Doc Holliday, dentist and gunman.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 15
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- No, that question someone is asking you is not at all rhetorical, and he or she is waiting for you to provide a solid answer.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Thoughts are likely to enter and leave your mind with remarkable swiftness. It may seem as though you cannot hold on to a single one of them!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are likely to do something that warrants praise and, quite possibly, congratulations from someone in a position of authority.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You want things to move quickly, but that may be made impossible by someone who doesn't understand the need for speed.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's a good time for you to be kinder to yourself. You've been trying for too long to do something that taxes you to the limit in some way.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are proud of that which you can call your own, and today is a good day to show others just how much it is worth to you.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you thought would be easy is actually likely to prove difficult unless you know something that others don't!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be able to fool some of the people around you, but not all -- and the stars themselves aren't likely to be fooled one bit!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are grappling with questions of purpose and destiny at this time. Today you are likely to get a few important answers.
