Born today, you are known for your ability to mix and mingle with all kinds of people, from those who have everything in common with you to those who have nothing whatsoever in common with anybody! Indeed, you seem to be at your best when you are interacting with those who might be labeled "difficult" or "misfit," for you have a way of making such people feel like they belong and are important. You hold yourself in very high esteem, of course, and while you may even have an inflated sense of your own abilities, the fact is that you truly are talented. The things you accomplish are likely to be considered quite important by others. You may find yourself thrust into the limelight on many occasions, and this will become something you actually welcome and enjoy.
You know how to skirt the rules now and then in order to get what you want. This can be dangerous, but you have a way of flying under the radar that allows you to get away with all manner of minor infractions. Take care, however! There are some things even you had better not try!

SATURDAY, AUGUST 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll want to give a straight answer when someone close to you asks you a difficult question, but you must think carefully first.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don't be stubborn! Say yes to someone who asks you to bend just a bit to accommodate his or her needs. You have little to lose and much to gain.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may feel incapable of controlling certain events. If that is so, you must be willing to go along with the plan another has in mind.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Focus on the details, and you'll be able to keep everything well in hand. But don't lose sight of the big picture, either!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll have to make do with less than expected until things pick up and give you the opportunity to gather what you really think you need.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll feel a bit more hemmed in than usual. The reason not only makes sense, but also gives you good cause to solve a personal problem.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll have reason to share more than usual with the one by your side. He or she may not be accustomed to this new level of intimacy.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be dealing with routine affairs in unusual ways all day long. Someone much younger than you will come up with a sound plan.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You will have to work hard to uncover something essential to your success, as it has been long buried -- and forgotten.
