Born today, you are one of the most vibrant and charismatic individuals born under your sign. You have a great deal of energy, and you are able to do something quite remarkable that many cannot: You are able to expend energy even as you save it up for later! This is remarkable, and it will surely give you the advantage in situations that require stamina. You seem to be lit from within at times, shining brightly on all those with whom you come in contact. No one who meets you, even in the briefest and most casual of situations, is likely to forget the encounter. You are positive, forward-thinking, and always able to see the silver lining within every cloud.
You don't like to sit back and let things happen to you; rather, you like to reach out, grab the tiger by the tail and determine where your fate will lead you as best you can. You never want to complain about what has happened to you; rather, you want to boast about what you have done -- and you are likely to do much in your lifetime.
Also born on this date are: Billy Ray Cyrus, singer; Sean Connery, actor; Tim Burton, filmmaker; Gene Simmons, singer; Rachael Ray, celebrity chef; Elvis Costello, singer; Blair Underwood, actor; Regis Philbin, TV personality; Claudia Schiffer, model and actress; Leonard Bernstein, composer; Ruby Keeler, actress; Monty Hall, game show host; George Wallace, politician; Van Johnson, actor; Tom Skerritt, actor; Rollie Fingers, baseball player; Jo Dee Messina, singer.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not be able to rely on the same old methods to win the results you are after when attempting something new and modern.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can prove to be an important influence to one who is in need of inspiration and guidance. A subtle, hands-off approach is best.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be thinking about things in a new way, and as a result, you'll be tempted to try something you've never tried before.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be asked to perform tasks that another usually performs, but he or she is currently unavailable. You can impress those in charge.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Those things that come naturally to you will serve you quite well throughout the day, though you may encounter at least one stumbling block.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be able to guide a friend through a journey of self-discovery. Don't underestimate the power of the little things.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- How you use your time, and other people's as well, will be an important part of your success -- or failure, if it comes to that.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be doubting yourself a bit, but as you encounter another who seems to have it all, your perspective will be sharpened.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll receive something in an unusual way -- but that's nothing compared to how unusual the gift itself may be!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You mustn't settle for less than what you've asked for. Stand your ground, but know that negotiation can yield satisfactory results.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may realize that you are in need of something that is not yet available to you. Be sure to stay in line; be ready for it when it's offered.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Not everything can be interpreted in a literal fashion. Much that you observe will mean more if you think more figuratively.
