Born today, you may be rather soft-spoken, but that doesn't mean you don't have a lot to say! On the contrary, you are so full of good thoughts, good ideas and good observations that it would be a disservice to the world around you if you kept them to yourself. Almost everyone benefits whenever you choose to open your mouth and speak. You may, when you are young, suffer from crippling shyness of a sort that isn't ever likely to disappear completely. Indeed, later in life, you will learn to compensate for this with a kind of quiet strength that you project into the world around you. You can be shaken by mischance, but you can -- and usually do -- recover quickly.
There are times when you feel you know better than others -- even the experts -- but you don't always feel the need to share this belief. It gives you a certain satisfaction to quietly walk through life knowing what you know -- and thinking that you know best. This is a wise approach, for you do not like to be contradicted.
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, filmmaker; Edward Furlong, actor; Tim Wakefield, baseball player.

MONDAY, AUGUST 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll give a rival enough to think about just by doing what comes naturally. The ordinary is, in your case, extraordinary.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Many are likely to talk about you and your recent antics, but you know that there's a little bit of admiration and envy at play here.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A review of a recent performance will give you an idea of what you do well and what needs improvement. Your own feelings are confirmed.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don't think twice when confronted with a choice you've been expecting. There's no extra time to consider options.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Now is the time for you to trust what you have been told about your potential. Much is possible, but only if you believe!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're ready to do more for yourself and someone else than you have been doing in the recent past. Confidence is high, and vision is clear.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone may be trying to play copycat with you -- without you being aware of it! Don't hesitate to reveal that you know what's going on.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- While you are expecting strength in numbers to be the rule, the fact is that you may do better working entirely on your own.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Don't make the mistake of thinking that an unusual tactic that works well at the moment is going to work well always.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're likely to get away with a minor infraction early in the day, but after that, you can bet that others are watching you closely.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can actually give yourself the boost you really need, but don't wait until you've been beaten down by circumstances.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Something that appears quite suddenly is likely to have more of an impact than anything you may have seen approach slowly from a distance.
