Born today, you are one of those refreshingly honest and straightforward individuals who never let prevailing circumstances shape the way they think, feel or behave. Like a great many other Virgo natives, you insist on treating others fairly and being treated fairly in return; anyone who doesn't follow this simple rule is likely to lose your company sooner rather than later. You have a vivid imagination, and a sense of humor that is always recognized and appreciated by those with you. Indeed, you know how to take a bad situation and make it better almost immediately simply by making a joke. You firmly believe the adage that laughter is the best medicine! You are a trustworthy companion, the kind others feel comfortable with no matter where you may be, or why. You are generous and always eager to see those around you succeed.
You can be quite comfortable doing the same thing for a long time. Your ability to remain interested and content is rare and widely acknowledged. Others can trust you to stick with a thing long after many have abandoned it for something new. You are not pushy, but you are full of encouragement for others.
Also born on this date are: Billy Ray Cyrus, singer; Sean Connery, actor; Tim Burton, filmmaker; Gene Simmons, singer; Rachael Ray, chef; Elvis Costello, singer; Blair Underwood, actor; Regis Philbin, television personality; Claudia Schiffer, model; Leonard Bernstein, composer; Ruby Keeler, actress; Monty Hall, game show host; Van Johnson, actor; Rollie Fingers, baseball player; George Wallace, politician; Tom Skerritt, actor; Jo Dee Messina, singer.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 26
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you see will not quite be what you get. The difference between fact and fiction may be highlighted in sharp relief.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Give others their due, but don't give away the farm! Much of what is happening right now is a credit to your way of thinking.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are assuming the worst even as evidence points to favorable developments on the horizon. What can you do to adjust your attitude?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A rival expects you to back down in the face of a new challenge, but in fact it's exactly what you have been preparing for.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll want to do things in the right order. Don't let anyone tell you that an arbitrary approach will yield the results you desire.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be tempted to make an about-face when it comes to something you said or did recently. Others misunderstand your position.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be stopped by someone who is willing to risk it all to cause a slowdown in either your business doings or your personal affairs.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Someone is trying to get in touch with you, but you may be suspicious about his or her motives. You won't know much until contact is made.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're eager to try something new, even though it will require you to make changes at home that others would find difficult.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- He or she who comes to you with the "perfect" offer is not to be trusted -- yet. You must investigate further before saying yes or no.
