Born today, you are likely to soar quite high in your lifetime as a result of cosmic alignments, earthly opportunity and an abundance of talent that has been bestowed upon you. The only sin you can commit, of course, is to fail to develop those talents to the fullest and pursue your goals with vision and tenacity -- but vision and tenacity are, in fact, two of your greatest gifts! You have a way of seeing the future and then making it happen, for yourself and for others. You do not let hardship or adversity stand in your way. While you are sure to be affected by knocks, setbacks and heartbreaks along the way, you know how to use them to strengthen yourself and your resolve and rise to new glories as a result.
You have tremendous sex appeal. You're likely to break many hearts in your lifetime, and true love, when it comes to you, will come as something of a surprise. You will certainly not have been anticipating it in any way.
Also born on this date are: Charlize Theron, actress; David Duchovny, actor; Billie Burke, actress; Tobin Bell, actor; Wayne Knight, actor; Louis Leakey, anthropologist; Garrison Keillor, writer and radio personality; John Glover, actor.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Be sure to do for yourself what you know is right and provide yourself with the basics that you need to perform up to par -- or above.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're not going to have to take too much time getting a certain thing accomplished. Circumstances favor all of your efforts.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will have cause to remember the lessons that someone else taught you long ago. You may want to send a message of gratitude.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What goes on around you today needn't distract you from your primary goals. Focus on doing things the way you know how to do them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It will be up to you to add some originality and creativity to an endeavor that others are approaching in a rather pedestrian manner.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll be reminded of the importance of a certain relationship that you have perhaps been taking for granted of late.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Now is no time for you to say "no" when you can certainly say "yes" and free yourself and others from certain annoying restrictions.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You will want to remind another that you are eager to work together on a certain project when the time is right, but now is not the time.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What another is trying to do may not sit well with you during the first part of the day. When you see things clearly, all will be well.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You will have to be quite specific in your requests and desires. Do what you can to pin someone down who has been waffling.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Things are likely to heat up as you face one who is determined to challenge your authority in a certain matter.
