Born today, you are destined to achieve great things if you paid attention to the signs and indicators that were all around you when you were young, and if you follow the path that seems to have been laid out before you by the stars. In the main, they are in favor of your eventual success and, quite possibly, fame, fortune and all that comes with it. If you do the all the right things and make all the right decisions, you can actually have everything you desire, and then some. Of course, this is not likely -- everyone makes mistakes now and then, even you -- but you are more likely than others to have most of what you want, eventually.
You may have to pay for one or two mistakes as you progress through life, but you consider these life lessons from which you can take away important new attitudes and behaviors that will help you back onto the right path. Once you have recovered your equilibrium, you can achieve a great deal.
Also born on this date are: Tom Brady, football player; Martha Stewart, homemaking expert and entrepreneur; Tony Bennett, singer; Martin Sheen, actor; John C. McGinley, actor; John Landis, director.

MONDAY, AUGUST 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It's not so much your ability to move quickly that will matter, but your ability to stop and change direction with confidence.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You will be forgiven for certain attempts at showing off -- for you have the skills, and many people will enjoy the show.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You cannot guarantee success, perhaps, but you can surely guarantee a good time -- provided everyone is as fully committed as you are.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be lacking one important piece of information, and without it, you cannot move forward. Be patient; it's on the way!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're in search of something that you didn't know had gone missing until it was too late. You can find it, but you must look in unusual places.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not fully understand your own motives, but you feel confident that you can push on without delay.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A partner has you wondering about your own abilities -- not because he or she doubts you, but because he or she wants even more!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be trying to please too many people at once, or to answer too many questions at the same time. Simplify and prevail!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You seem to be lost in a world of your own imagining, and it would be best for you to find your way before too long!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You needn't try to press your own agenda; rather, do as you are told and you will find your way within those rather liberal confines.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your understanding of the common good will have you making a few unusual decisions, but their value will surely be clear to all.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can go it alone or you can work well as part of a carefully choreographed group effort, but you're in no mood for improvisation!
