Born today, you are likely to find yourself in the hands of fate from an early age, and you must therefore learn to work with the stars, not against them, as you progress through life and navigate the world around you. You have, in fact, two choices: to fight against what is largely inevitable, or to work with it and, in ways both clever and subtle, shape what comes to suit your character, taste, abilities and ambition. Do the former, and you may encounter much difficulty in life; do the latter, and much that might otherwise have been tricky will instead be smooth sailing.
You are attractive to members of the opposite sex -- and to those of your own gender, too. It's not so much that everyone is likely to fall in love with you -- though many are, certainly -- but rather that everyone is likely to feel somehow inspired when you are around. You have a kind of magic touch.
Also born on this date are: LeAnn Rimes, singer; Jack Black, actor; Jason Priestley, actor; Shania Twain, singer; Scott Hamilton, Olympic ice skater; Daniel Stern, actor; David Soul, actor and singer; Ben Gazzara, actor; Donald O'Connor, actor, singer, dancer; Charles Boyer, actor; Johann von Goethe, writer.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Something that started in a purely businesslike fashion may turn into something far more personal.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have the opportunity to make a few key changes -- not only in what you do, but in how you think, as well.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Your approach to a certain key problem may be a little old-fashioned, but it gets the job done. You are, if nothing else, true to yourself.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You and a friend are not really after the same things, so it may be time for you to work separately for a while.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Time heals all wounds, or so they say. For you, there is one injury that no amount of time will mend; it requires something else!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A rival is likely to come up with an idea that makes you somewhat envious, but in your own time you can come up with something even better!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A message from a secret admirer reveals more upon a second reading than you had expected. Certain secrets aren't really so secret!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you are doing now is only a warm-up -- a prologue to the main event that isn't likely to begin until you're good and ready.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll want to be sure that your path is clear; you don't want to come upon any unexpected obstacles that will slow you down.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are eager to get started with something you are confident will bring you great satisfaction, but you must clear your docket first.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You mustn't let someone else control you. Don't do anything that results in you being put in a subservient position.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can take any kind of criticism that comes your way, provided it is professionally communicated.
