Born today, you have been endowed with tremendous ability -- and tremendous patience! This combination is rare and is likely to give you the advantage over others who may be equally capable and talented but who are in a hurry to enjoy the success to which they feel they are entitled. You are more than willing to work for your rewards and you never assume that you are entitled to anything. You are fair in all your dealings, and you treat others with respect -- while demanding respect in return. You have a strong mind and an able body, and you can apply yourself to all manner of problems and solve them in creative ways.
You are not always the most happy-go-lucky individual, as you are subject to rather foul moods upon occasion -- but then, who is not? You find it best, when such a mood strikes, to limit your contact with others and work through whatever may have caused you to go to the "dark side." Once you have recovered, it is usually as if nothing happened at all.
Also born on this date are: Chris Hemsworth, actor; Hulk Hogan, wrestler and actor; Alex Haley, author; Pablo Sandoval, baseball player; Steve Wozniak, computer mogul; Joe Rogan, TV host and actor; Mike Douglas, producer and talk-show host; Jerry Falwell, evangelist.
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.
SUNDAY, AUGUST 12
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You must be ready for any eventualities today. What a friend brings to the table can prove quite inspiring -- provided you see its true value.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have recently gotten yourself into hot water without knowing it. You're fully aware of it now and must do something about it.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You mustn't let pride keep you from doing what is right by someone else. It's a good day to set aside any differences and think of the future.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are expecting a lot today, and you can do much to improve your overall chances. It's time to do what you've prepared to do, and then some.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can take pride in much that you do today, but there is one accomplishment that still eludes you, and you are more determined than ever.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- That which is difficult is certainly worth doing -- and doing well. You have what it takes to go the distance when many others fall short.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You must take warnings seriously today -- but you must also know which are true and valid, and which are merely meant to throw you off-balance.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can avoid jealousy of all kinds today and keep a friend from falling victim to the "green-eyed monster." Pay no mind to rumors.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A major development can happen without warning today -- and have an almost immediate effect upon you and the plans you are making.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Despite any seeming conflict between you and a co-worker, there is much you can do together today without any escalation of hostilities.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can be the first to make your mark today, though you can bet there will be others following in your footsteps in no time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Be sure to do your homework today. You can't expect to perform up to par without taking the time to prepare fully.
