Born today, you love lists. You love anything having to do with lists. You are able to live your life only because you know how to make and use lists -- lists of all kinds. Your favorite, however, is the basic "to do" list; you enjoy making one, and you enjoy checking things off as you work your way through it. So what, you may wonder, is at the heart of this list obsession? You want things to be quantifiable and identifiable; you want them to be neatly laid out before you so that you can see exactly what you are facing at any given time; you need to know what your day will be like, and a list is the best way for you to maintain that knowledge. If all of this sounds foreign to you, it's just a matter of time. You will someday make an important list, and your life will change as a result. If you are not a list maker now, you'll be transformed into one forever, as if by magic, once you make that first list.
For much the same reason, you love maps -- or will love them if you ever acquaint yourself with them intimately. You love knowing where you are, and where you are in relation to other places. Order, to you, is the basis of all confidence and comfort. And the truth is that you can very quickly become frustrated with others who do not present themselves in an orderly, linear, one-through-10 fashion that you can quickly assess and understand.
Also born on this date are: Shania Twain, singer; LeAnn Rimes, singer; Armie Hammer, actor; Jason Priestley, actor; Daniel Stern, actor; David Soul, actor; Luis Guzman, actor; Scott Hamilton, Olympic figure skater; Ben Gazzara, actor; Lou Piniella, baseball manager; Johann von Goethe, author and philosopher; Charles Boyer, actor.

MONDAY, AUGUST 29
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have ulterior motives, and you cannot let others catch on. You must navigate this landscape with sensitivity and flexibility.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can speed things up a bit as the end of your workday nears. Take care, however, that you don't miss a step at the last moment!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may want to restructure your plans to accommodate a new desire that you only just realized must take top priority.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's a good day to experiment. Once you learn what you can and cannot -- or should not -- do, you'll be able to pick up the pace.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Others may be scrutinizing your every move, but you'll surely be above reproach in every way. Admiration for you grows.
