Born today, you are a powerful individual with great charisma and explosive energy. You could rally people around almost any cause and inspire them to do great things in its name. You seem to have one good idea after another, and you know how to work with available tools and resources to transform those ideas into reality. Not everything is going to work out perfectly the first time, of course, but you are quite tenacious -- some would stay stubborn! -- and you're not about to quit until you've taken a plan as far as it can go, having explored every bit of potential it may contain. You're always willing to work hard to make things happen; indeed, the thought of shrinking from a challenge would never occur to you.
You strive to embrace goodness in all its forms, and you will stand up for the things you believe in, no matter how difficult that may be. You never fear adversity; in fact, you often find yourself looking for it! You feel you are at your best when grappling with a personal challenge.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The moment you realize just which direction you must go to avoid a formidable obstacle, you'll want to be on your way.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone may come to you with an offer that takes you very much by surprise -- and you'll really have no choice but to say yes!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Keep your eyes on the prize, and it can be yours -- if not by day's end, then surely within a day or two. It's your move, by the way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have interesting news for someone who is trying to juggle too many responsibilities. He or she can relax a bit as a result.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You mustn't resist asking a favor of someone in charge. What you most want is available to you, but only if you are willing to ask!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Give someone else the chance to shine, and you'll bask in that light, as well. A good feeling comes from doing all you can for a friend.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have gotten over a recent slight, but events will remind you that perhaps not everything has been smoothed over completely.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It may feel as though you are not yet a part of the team, but in fact, everyone is looking forward to your essential contributions.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What gives you the edge is something that you only suspect is true -- until, of course, you see clear evidence of it later on.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're going to have to take certain things on faith -- and that may be difficult in light of certain key developments.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have trouble coming to terms with a situation at the workplace. Could it be that you've been passed over?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Not everything is as it seems -- including something that you've come to anticipate with some trepidation.
