Born today, you are possessed of a strong, formidable personality, and you are never quick to give way to another who is trying to force you out of your place. There may be times in which your reactions to people and situations can be rather unorthodox, even unruly -- but there is a certain charm to your particular inconsistency in this regard. This quirk belies a quiet reserve that you maintain in many situations, one that stems from a kind of uncertainty or self-doubt that you are continually working to override. This is an aspect of your nature that you try to keep to yourself, and if you do share it, it is only with those who are closest to you.
Your ability to attract admirers from among both sexes is likely to be well known; you have that certain something that others want to be around -- and, in some cases, even possess. This is something you would never allow: Indeed, no one will ever "own" you!

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You needn't work too hard to convince others that your position is the right one at this time; they'll figure that out by day's end!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be the only one to discern the difference between two similar influences that actually affect you in conflicting ways. This is helpful!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are trying too hard perhaps to satisfy someone else's desires. What about yours? Today is a good day to focus on yourself.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You and a rival come together today when you realize that there is some important common ground between you. Avoid a fight!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Others may not be sure what you are trying to accomplish, but you do inspire confidence and most will make a point of staying out of your way.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A misinterpretation may seem minor, but it can lead to something much bigger -- and that is something you may not be able to deal with.
