Born today, you are one of the most adventurous individuals born under your sign and will try almost anything at least once. This is not merely because you are eager to get a taste of that which others might avoid, but rather because you believe that to step out beyond your threshold and challenge yourself is a sure way of improving yourself and of experiencing life to the fullest. Also, you are always eager to learn about yourself and your surroundings.
Oddly, perhaps, you are not a team player. That is, you do not prefer to do things in tandem with others but would almost always rather experience things alone. This separates you from most other Leo natives, who thrive on sharing experiences with other like-minded individuals. Not you!
Also born on this date are: Whitney Houston, singer; Anna Kendrick, actress; Sam Elliott, actor; Deion Sanders, football player; Gillian Anderson, actress; Michael Kors, designer; Eric Bana, actor; Melanie Griffith, actress; Robert Shaw, actor and writer; Rod Laver, tennis 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 10
ARIES (March 21-April 21) -- You cannot control everything, but if you succeed in controlling just the right thing today the effect will be just as beneficial.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not be able to perform all necessary calculations today, but you know where to go for assistance -- and that's the key.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You and a rival have more in common right now than at any time in the past, and you recognize this. It's time to come together somehow.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you insist on being defined by what you do, then how you do it may not win the recognition it deserves. Combine both style and substance!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're eager to settle into a routine, but one detail of a current project prevents it for now. This is an opportunity, not a setback.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may be surprised to learn that you are quite capable of doing something that was so far out of your comfort zone as to be impossible.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can make another "whole" today, while someone else does the same for you. And to think, you didn't even know anything was missing!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You don't want to be seen as the prodigal son or daughter, so you must be sure to do what is expected of you whenever the time comes today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You are able to toe the line and follow instructions to the letter today -- and that's likely to win you several new friends and admirers.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The weather may not cooperate with you for a time today, but just when you think you must change your plans, things take a turn.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may have to travel farther from home today than expected in order to get an answer to a question that seemed very simple at first.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- What happens during morning hours will affect you for quite some time -- but you must shake it off before evening activities begin.
