Born today, you are no stranger to hardship or distress, but you have so much going for you that you are always able to look beyond the trying times to a future that is bright and promising. You know what you are about, what you are capable of and what you want to do with your life. This can be both advantageous and exasperating, for it will give you a leg up on the competition when you are young, but it will result in tremendous frustration at times when you do not see your dreams come true. Still, you're not one to give up; you will keep striving, like so many Leo natives, until it is simply impossible to strive any longer.
You are stalwart in mind, body and character, and if you don't trip yourself up by pursuing the easy path, you will remain strong throughout your lifetime. You can take comfort in the fact that you often have things much more in hand than you think you do!
Also born on this date are: Whitney Houston, singer; Anna Kendrick, actress; Sam Elliott, actor; Deion Sanders, football player; Gillian Anderson, actress; Michael Kors, designer; Eric Bana, actor; Melanie Griffith, actress; Robert Shaw, actor and writer; Rod Laver, tennis player.

MONDAY, AUGUST 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll have the chance to pick up where another left off -- and demonstrate in the process that you are an expert in your field.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be afraid that the environmental influences will not be favorable, but you do have a backup plan that will not be affected.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have trouble putting the last pieces of a puzzle into place. Perhaps you're seeing things from an odd angle; take a step back.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It's important for you to see the big picture and avoid getting tangled in a web of minutia. You're trying to figure something out.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're waiting to receive important information from someone who is nominally in charge of a project that is actually up to you to complete.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may feel as though others have taken a step back and are not performing up to par. Perhaps you can demonstrate what is expected.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must focus on what lies ahead, not get caught up in regrets about past errors. One or two doors will open for you very soon.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're not about to reveal the information you have worked so hard to collect. When the time comes, you'll use it to good advantage.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You and a friend may experiment with a new strategy. The results could very well lead you to switch roles.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Try not to make the same mistake twice -- once is enough, surely! What you learn will make you stronger and more capable.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're keenly interested in what a partner is up to. He or she is doing things that affect you in ways that were not expected.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's not enough to watch the world go by; you must be willing to jump in and take part! You have a few excellent plans brewing.
