Born today, you are bound and determined to uncover the secrets of life, and you will spare no expense and leave no stone unturned in your search. You have been endowed with a driving curiosity that will always be your primary motivator. Your interest in learning about yourself and the world around you is undying, and could very well lead you into many viable and possibly lucrative careers. You tend to get bored when you don't have some outlet for your drive and curiosity; you want to be always on the go, always seeking and striving -- on this depends your happiness and, ultimately, your success. Sit still for too long, and you fear that you'll lose that necessary edge. And so you might!
You are able to craft things with great care. Despite your eagerness to stay on the move, always working on something, you are not always in a hurry. Indeed, you recognize that the slow and steady approach is often the best way to go. You sometimes throw caution to the wind, but you always find the pace that will yield the greatest rewards.
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.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 8
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may not be given exactly what you need, so you're going to have to spend some time acquiring it on your own.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone is not performing up to par, and it may reflect poorly on you. Is it time to sever ties and go it alone for a while?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Difficulties that arise can be traced back to a mistake made some time ago, which you discounted because you didn't fully understand it.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You mustn't telegraph too much; some things are best kept secret until the time comes to reveal them all at once. Examine your motives.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You should be able to outfit yourself with the tools necessary to do an assigned job to the best of your ability.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may feel as though someone is expecting more from you than is actually fair, but fairness really has little to do with it.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can give a friend or co-worker a little advice that will go a long way -- if he or she is smart enough to listen well and take it!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may feel not quite yourself. Signs and symptoms point to something other than what you assume. Avoid stress, by all means.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your ability to see through to the heart of an issue will serve you and others well as you examine a certain domestic situation.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Don't let anyone get away with the same old excuses; it's time to get unstuck and start exploring options that are more attractive.
