Born today, you are not likely to follow in anyone else's footsteps. You insist on doing things in a completely original way, without regard for whether others will appreciate it or recognize its value. You like to live on the edge, trying things that others usually shy away from. Indeed, you like to say that you will try anything once -- and usually that is quite true! You may encounter serious danger when you choose to throw caution to the wind and jump into a new situation without taking the time to consider all the pros and cons. While you don't consider yourself irresponsible or a daredevil, the fact of the matter is that you are not always careful or sensible.
You're likely to have one great love in your life -- and whether it's a person, a thing, a place or an activity, it will be central to your being from the moment it comes into your life until the moment you depart this world. It will bring you inspiration, energy and a healthy perspective on yourself and all you do.
Also born on this date are: Sir Alfred Hitchcock, filmmaker; Fidel Castro, Cuban leader; Annie Oakley, Wild West entertainer; Bert Lahr, actor; Danny Bonaduce, actor; Dan Fogelberg, singer; George Shearing, pianist; Debi Mazar, actress; Don Ho, singer; John Slattery, actor.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Others certainly want to know what you have to say -- but do you really want them to know what you are thinking? It's a tricky situation!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Things may not go exactly as planned. What you have scheduled for yourself may be impossible, given current circumstances.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- An obstacle is sure to arise, but you may be able to see it coming and adjust your own behavior accordingly. It shouldn't be a problem.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You've got to keep moving, no matter what. Remember, momentum can be your friend, and you needn't try to pull up short.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your vivid personality may actually get in the way for an hour or two. Try taking a back seat to someone less colorful.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can put your plans in motion without risking too much -- even failure. This is an experimental time for many.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be expecting something you are not looking forward to -- but instead of dreading it, prepare for it!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- The problems you are facing may not be wholly imaginary, but to some degree they are the result of your own faulty perceptions.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Now is no time to take chances. Take precautions instead, and do what you can to help others prepare for any eventualities.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll find yourself responding well when the stakes are raised. The more you have on the line, the better your performance.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can make quite a difference to someone who has become caught between the proverbial rock and hard place. Go easy on him or her!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You mustn't let another's wishes get in the way of what you are working toward. Your priorities are set, and your schedule is fixed.
