Born today, you are perhaps one of the most easygoing individuals born under your sign, yet it doesn't always seem that way to those who do not know you well. Perhaps you sometimes put others off because you have such a vibrant personality, tremendous charisma and a great many abilities, but this says more about them than it does about you. The truth is that you can get along with almost anyone, at any time -- provided, of course, that you are not wronged in some way, or offended, or treated in a manner that is unfair, ill-mannered or downright mean.
You seem to be able to smile through almost anything, yet there are things that will cause the clouds to gather. One of these is injustice. This is something you simply cannot abide. You are far more sensitive to it when someone else is wronged, and you are not likely to forgive or forget any time soon.
Also born on this date are: Donnie Wahlberg, actor; Sean Penn, actor; Robert De Niro, actor; Maureen O'Hara, actress; Mae West, actress and comedian; Davy Crockett, frontiersman.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 18
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're in no mood for the kind of talk that is merely an empty exercise; however, real communication is something you will really enjoy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have a choice between a premium purchase and something that is much more in line with your current budget. This is a difficult choice.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be called upon to do something that doesn't come naturally to you, but if you are given two or three chances, you can do it quite well.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may have to step in between warring parties and demand that they set aside their arguments and acknowledge common ground.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you have any questions after getting complete instructions, be sure to ask. You may not get another chance -- at least not right away.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- That which has been forbidden is something you may suddenly discover you very much want. How can you make this happen?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Do you want to cause trouble for a friend, or do you want to be supportive in any way you can? The choice is yours.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your prospects are all quite good, but a decision you make early on may actually put you behind the eight ball for a time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What you do today is likely to be permanent, so take care that you don't do anything you're going to regret in the time to come.
