Born today, you have a certain way of doing things, a certain way of thinking about things and a certain way of saying things that are uniquely your own -- and you're not about to change for anyone or anything, at any time. Indeed, your life's journey is not likely to be about change of any kind, nor is it likely to allow for any significant change at all. It is about solidifying your own beliefs, behavior and character as you encounter other people, situations, circumstances and opportunities, any of which may be positive or negative. Progress, to you, is constant growth, born of self-awareness, self-assessment and, ultimately, self-knowledge.
You have a few tremendous talents that are likely to be apparent when you are very young. If you develop one or more of these as fully as possible, you're almost certain to be known, perhaps even the world over, for what you are able to contribute during the remarkably busy span of your life.
Also born on this date are: Michael Jackson, singer and entertainer; Robin Leach, TV personality; William Friedkin, director; Elliott Gould, actor; John McCain, U.S. senator; Richard Attenborough, actor and director; Charlie "Bird" Parker, musician; Isabel Sanford, actress and comedian; Ingrid Bergman, actress.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Despite how another wants things to progress, you should be able to go about your business the way you always do.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Your methods are best for you, now and always. Still, you may want to experiment with a few minor adjustments, just for fun.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You must get in touch with others as soon as possible, for later on there may not be enough time for elaborate communication.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're never too far from home, and today you'll be able to remain close to those who mean most to you regardless of your geographical location.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There's nothing stopping you from getting in touch with that certain someone who, for good or ill, influences you more than any other.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It's important for you to keep certain habits and patterns of behavior alive at this time. A surprise makes you balk for a moment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You're likely to find yourself far from the beaten path, particularly if you let yourself be distracted by a new variable.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be thinking all kinds of new thoughts throughout the day, but it is one older, more familiar one that really makes the difference.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Others may think that you are resting, letting your mind wander or not paying attention -- but that is hardly the case!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You are expecting a certain complication to slow things down, but it may not come to pass. If it doesn't, pace is not an issue.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can't afford to have any messages misinterpreted today, so you had best speak clearly and directly at all times.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be congratulated for something you did some time ago that, to you, was just a matter of course. Others were impressed!
