Born today, you have tremendous staying power. Once you are in the game, you will surely be a competitor for a long, long time. You will influence how the game is played as you watch the pendulum swing this way and that, again and again, while you remain constant through it all. You are highly creative, and you can take what another has already done and improve upon it in such a way that the prior attempt may not even be remembered. Because of this, you must always be sure to give credit where credit is due, for you owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to those who have gone before, providing you with the templates for creative work of your own.
There are times when you may actually pour too much of yourself into your work. It can sometimes be quite hazardous to invest so personally in what you are doing professionally, but this is something you will surely learn in time. With luck, you can keep the cost of this lesson to a minimum!
Also born on this date are: Coolio, rapper; Jerry Garcia, singer-songwriter and musician; Tempestt Bledsoe, actress; Francis Scott Key, poet; William Clark, explorer; Dom DeLuise, actor and comedian; Robert Cray, singer; Herman Melville, author; Yves Saint Laurent, designer.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 2
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your ability to appreciate what others have to offer will serve you well as much that is unusual comes your way.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What a friend does or says is likely to send you howling with laughter -- at least until you realize that everyone is looking!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be reunited with someone who was very important to you in times past, and it will likely be as if no time has passed at all.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're intrigued by another's approach to a situation that you are also trying to get a handle on. He or she is certainly no novice!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Someone may be trying to push you out and get into position him- or herself, but you know what is going on and can avoid any such rearrangement.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can alert others to something that is coming quickly, but it is something to be embraced, not avoided.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You know what must be done, and you know by when, but the "how" may prove a mystery for a while. Answers come suddenly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be reliving a situation that doesn't make you as happy as it did the first or second time. You are different now, perhaps.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll be able to please someone in charge by doing what is desired ahead of schedule -- but this may take some juggling on your part.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The more time you spend with someone new to your circle, the more likely you are to realize how much you have in common.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may encounter someone who works much more slowly than you like to work, but together you can still get things done as necessary.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're not happy looking only at the broad strokes; you want to examine the finer points to be sure you understand the whole picture.
