Born today, you are never one to stop a dream from developing fully, whether you are asleep or awake. You believe in the power of dreams, and you are always eager to see what you can make of them; indeed, you are all about making your dreams come true! You are highly visual in your perception of the world, and that enables you to see that which has not yet come to pass -- and after you see it, you can begin to work toward it and make it real. Dreams, to you, are every bit as real as the "real life" that consumes most others.
Not only do you dream differently from others, but you do other things differently as well. If it's the kind of thing that most people would steer clear of, then it's the kind of thing you will want to explore fully. You do not shy away from challenges or dangers; given the chance, you would gladly swim with sharks simply to say you'd done it!
Also born on this date are: James Baldwin, author; Myrna Loy, actress; Mary-Louise Parker, actress; Victoria Jackson, actress and comedian; Peter O'Toole, actor; Carroll O'Connor, actor; Wes Craven, director; Edward Furlong, actor; Tim Wakefield, baseball player.
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.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may want to embrace old-fashioned methods for a time today, as you explore a way to get in touch with what you call your "former self."
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You mustn't let even the smallest of details escape your scrutiny. In those details you will find the key to unlocking a personal mystery.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can point the way for many others today, but you must also be willing to go it alone for a time when the going gets suddenly difficult.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Pay attention to all that is going on around you today; your peripheral awareness will be the key to avoiding even hidden dangers.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll be dealing with more than money matters today, but it is money that will be at the heart of most things that demand your attention.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not have the answers to all the questions asked of you today, but you can surely find them out if you are given the opportunity.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- It may be best for you to do what you've always done in a certain situation, rather than try to find a new and more effective approach today.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- A dark cloud may hang over the proceedings today, until you realize that you aren't being asked to do anything you don't really want to do.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be anticipating something that is never actually going to happen today. This realization can improve your attitude.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll want to move forward with confidence today, and be proud of the fact that no one does it quite like you -- whatever "it" is!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Something can actually be done about a situation that seems to have stalled, but it's likely to require taking a wildly unusual first step.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may actually risk making things more difficult by insisting that others play by your rules. There has to be a way to compromise.
