Born today, you can quickly agree to do whatever the group is doing, but you will never give up your own unique way of doing it. This means, of course, that you are bound to be noticed, even when you are trying as best you can to blend in! There is very little chance, in fact, that you will ever be overlooked in any way, particularly as you reach maturity. Your personality is so strong and vivid, and your tastes so unique, that others cannot help but be attracted to you and hold you up as a kind of model of what they would like to be! You are sure to have many admirers throughout your lifetime, but perhaps only a few close friends.
It is these close friends to whom you must cling as closely as you can throughout your life, for they are sure to be your compass and keep you from making decisions that are bad for you -- or from doing things that can be downright destructive. Your close friends are a part of you and will remain so, always.
Also born on this date are: Kim Cattrall, actress; Kenny Rogers, singer; Wilt Chamberlain, basketball player; Jack Weston, actor; Chris Schenkel, sportscaster; Count Basie, musician; Aubrey Beardsley, illustrator.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You mustn't take things too literally; indeed, metaphors abound, and you can interpret them with some real creativity.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to make a certain personal sacrifice in order to ensure that another has what he or she needs at this time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The environment may not cooperate with you fully. Whether indoors or out, certain ambient disturbances are unavoidable.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's time to wash your hands of a situation that was not of your making, and that cannot be solved through any efforts of your own.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are anticipating behavior from a friend that is not warranted by current circumstances. See if you can avoid such preconceptions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can't avoid fatigue, but you can surely avoid the kind of mistakes that come from acting irrationally as a result of that fatigue.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You've given a great deal -- and you can give even more -- to a cause that you believe in deeply.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Now is the time for you to take advantage of even the most seemingly minute opportunities. You never know what can happen!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You and a dear one may come face-to-face with a certain reality that you have both been trying to avoid for some time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The silence that you are eager for at this time is not the kind that is likely to surround you. That kind is indeed not comforting!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are merely the keeper of something that doesn't belong to you -- but you are proud that you can be playing a major role.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can show another that you are game and ready for anything -- provided you are playing in a familiar arena.
