Born today, you are the kind of person who can take the world by storm, and if you allow yourself to take advantage of the opportunities that come your way when you are young, you can certainly do just that! You have a way of seeing things very simply, even when others assess them as being hopelessly complex. As a result, you seem able to do things that others are incapable of doing. While others are content to say no to themselves or to you, you are far more likely to say, "Why not?" You will jump in with both feet to make the best of whatever opportunity has presented itself -- and you can spot an opportunity almost anywhere!
What you do and how you do it aren't likely to be to everyone's taste -- of course you can't please everyone all the time! But you know how to win people over, and you can have even your harshest critics singing your praises eventually. You are positive, lighthearted and quick-witted.
Also born on this date are: Jennifer Lawrence, actress; Ben Affleck, actor and director; Napoleon Bonaparte, French emperor; Julia Child, celebrity chef; Debra Messing, actress; Mike Connors, actor; Ethel Barrymore, actress; Natasha Henstridge, actress.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
SUNDAY, AUGUST 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Time cures all ills, but you may feel that a recent offense is so egregious that no remedy will do. This is not a healthy attitude!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're not in the mood to discuss your feelings, yet someone close to you is eager to know just what is going on beneath the surface.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are eager to go home -- and you may well have the chance to get closer to your old stomping ground than you have been in any recent time.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Someone may be devising a plot that works against your true desires, but for the time being, you will probably have to go along with it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can do good service and still tend to your own affairs in a manner befitting your likes, needs and desires.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Now is the time for you to make a return to your roots -- if not physically, then in a way that allows you to reach back in time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your way may not be the best way, or the most efficient, but it is the way you know will produce results -- and give you much enjoyment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be surprised to learn just how much someone else is involved in an affair that you thought was important to you and you alone.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- What you are thinking of doing by yourself can be done better -- and more quickly -- in the company of another. Choose wisely!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- This may not be the time for you to share you opinions openly. It may be more appropriate for you to hold your tongue, at least for now.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A friend shares a point of view that may have you wondering if you are following the right course. Many choices present themselves.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You will be worthy of praise by day's end, but it may be quite difficult for you to make a start that promises the desired results.
