Born today, you go about your business in an unassuming manner, to the extent that others rarely know what you are up to. This is not because you wish to be sneaky; on the contrary, you are more than willing to share your ideas with anyone who shows an interest. You merely don't feel the need to advertise your every move to the world at large, as you find doing so to be an unnecessary distraction from getting things done. You have keen instincts, and you know where to put yourself in almost any situation in order to get the most out of it. You are not one to say "no" when you mean "yes," and you will always back up your opinions with what you consider to be proof.
You enjoy exploring your talents and stretching yourself to your natural limits; when you find that there is something you cannot do, you are just as pleased as when you discover that you can do something else. Knowing your boundaries is essential to being yourself.
Also born on this date are: Erwin Schrodinger, scientist; Buck Owens, singer and songwriter; Mark Knopfler, guitarist; Cecil B. DeMille, director; Pete Sampras, tennis player; Bruce Greenwood, actor; Sir Mix-a-Lot, rapper; Jane Wyatt, actress; Pat Metheny, guitarist; William Goldman, screenwriter; Christy Mathewson, 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.
MONDAY, AUGUST 13
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It's time for you to make a move, one way or the other. Sitting still and waiting for this to happen to you is not the way to progress!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're eager to be moving on from where you currently are to a place that affords you greater opportunity -- both personally and professionally.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You need clarification from someone about what is coming up, but you're not likely to get it if you move too quickly. Take time to be thorough.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A bump in the road may have you stymied for a moment, but not too long. You can be back in the saddle in no time, showing them how it's done.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Take care that you don't free yourself of a certain responsibility prematurely today. You can't afford to leave anyone in the lurch right now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're perhaps more sensitive than usual -- which is saying a lot! Others won't always know how to behave around you today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may feel unconnected today, but that's easily remedied. Take corrective measures and wait; you mustn't be hurried in any way!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can move from here to there much more easily today than usual. It's not the mode of transportation, but rather your attitude and enthusiasm.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Now is the time for you to give another what he or she asks for -- without engaging in any of the usual discussion. Just do it!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can put things in order again and again today, but that's not likely to solve a problem that has plagued you for days on end.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You've been resisting someone else's very good idea long enough. Today, you may want to relax a bit and just see where it can lead you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You want a little more information today, but it may not be completely necessary to what you have to do either at work or at home.
