Born today, you are likely to become one of the most admired individuals born under your sign. Even if you weren't endowed with such remarkable talents, even if you didn't pursue your goals with a single-minded concentration that is virtually unequalled, and even if you didn't rise to the top of your chosen profession through a combination of will and hard work, you would surely be admired -- for you have an admirable character. You are highly principled, deeply conscientious and never willing to secure your own success or advancement by stepping on others. You are an upstanding, highly moral individual, and for this you are widely admired.
You don't always do things the way they are supposed to be done, but neither do you break the rules. Rather, you find a way to do what you do that is unique to you and that suits your personality and style, but that is also perfectly agreeable to others. You may be unconventional, but you are also quite acceptable.
Also born on this date are: James Baldwin, author; Myrna Loy, actress; Mary-Louise Parker, actress; Victoria Jackson, actress and comedian; Peter O'Toole, actor; Carroll O'Connor, actor; Wes Craven, director; Edward Furlong, actor; Tim Wakefield, baseball player.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you do now is not so much a matter of learning as it is a matter of nature. Do what comes naturally, and you'll surely prevail.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may get a slow start, but as your brain warms up, you'll be flooded with thoughts that lead to a foolproof idea.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It may take you longer than usual to warm up to someone who has just arrived on the scene. This may be due to his or her unusual demeanor.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Success will be a matter of memory, combined with your ability to do things that others may not expect.
