Born today, you have what it takes to achieve the extraordinary -- and what is more, to be extraordinary in your own right. You may be dealt a difficult hand once or twice in your youth -- or perhaps even more often -- but you will have a way of placing your bets and working your circumstances that, more often than not, you will come out on top. This is sure to instill you with a confidence that is rare and valuable -- and a knowledge of the world that you can use again and again, especially when things threaten to get tough and dangerous for you. You're not one to shy away from difficulty of any kind, especially in your later years.
Success, to you, is something unique and deeply personal. You do not subscribe to the same definition of success that anyone else does, and this is sure to give you an advantage in life as you strive for personal contentment and the kind of accomplishment that really means something to you and you alone.
Also born on this date are: Shania Twain, singer; LeAnn Rimes, singer; Armie Hammer, actor; Jason Priestley, actor; Daniel Stern, actor; David Soul, actor; David Fincher, filmmaker; Luis Guzman, actor; Scott Hamilton, Olympic figure skater; Ben Gazzara, actor; Lou Piniella, baseball manager; Johann von Goethe, author and philosopher; Charles Boyer, actor.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may be learning how to work the system quite well, and you will enjoy at least one major dividend.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're not in a position to tell others what they can and cannot do -- yet. Soon, however, you'll be the one who calls the shots.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's not a race, but you may feel that you are at least trying to beat the clock. What happens if you simply slow down for a moment?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It may be time for you to wean yourself away from a project that others will soon have to maintain without you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're likely to get a taste of a new kind of independence, and you're going to enjoy it! How can you make this permanent?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A curious sensation has you considering something new and different. You want to keep things percolating for a while, perhaps.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- While waiting for others to get up to speed, you needn't simply keep your batteries charged. You can make productive use of the time!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to fess up to something in order to clear the air and start anew. Everyone is willing to give you a pass.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're eager to see if your plan can be carried out exactly as you have devised it, but you must be ready for one or two significant changes.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Putting yourself in harm's way is no way to keep others from harm. You're going to want to protect everyone -- yourself included!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have to be unusually clever in order to reconcile two warring parties. Don't skirt the truth, whatever you do.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're likely to get started quite early if given the opportunity. This gives you some valuable time later on for personal issues.
