Born today, you are an upstanding, thoughtful individual for whom doing the right thing is more than just good manners; it's a way of life. This attitude is not something you were born with, however; it is likely the result of years of growing and evolving. Ultimately, however, you have come to the conclusion that harmony is worth living for. You have deep and lasting friendships; those closest to you are more like family than friends -- and you will risk any hardship to support them.
You are a romantic at heart, and you may spend your life looking for that certain "something" that is surely coming -- but whence you know not, or when. But waiting, for you, is an active choice, and you never waste time when you are waiting for things to happen; you use it to your advantage, even in "transitional" periods.
Also born on this date are: Amy Adams, actress; Robert Plant, singer; Al Roker, TV personality; Isaac Hayes, singer and musician; Ron Paul, politician; Benjamin Harrison, U.S. president; Don King, boxing promoter; Connie Chung, TV journalist; H.P. Lovecraft, author; Ray Wise, actor; Jacqueline Susann, author; Peter Horton, actor.
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.
TUESDAY, AUGUST 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Someone is likely to turn your head today simply because he or she is so good at his or her job. You can demonstrate your expertise, too.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must be sure to align yourself with the right people today. You'll know you've made an error in this regard when progress ceases.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can't fix everything, but you can surely position most things in such a way that they can be fixed -- by someone. Don't try to do it all.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're eager to get closer to someone who makes you feel as though anything is possible. It may be time to share more of yourself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- How you see something is going to affect how others see it today -- perhaps not right away, but eventually, and in time to have an impact.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Something big is coming, but you may have to wait until you've dealt with a routine issue before moving on to something new and important.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be struggling with the reason to do something, when in fact the mere desire to do it is reason enough. Your motives are not in question now!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You know where the last piece of the puzzle is supposed to go, but you may not be able to find it right away among all that you are facing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your stubbornness serves you well today as it keeps you from accepting a situation that is not good for you -- now or ever.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- There's no reason for the day to end with you empty-handed; you can have what you want if you will only ask for it by name -- and loudly, too!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may be distracted by what someone else is up to today, but you must not let that keep you from doing what you know must not go undone.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- How you present yourself makes all the difference today, but you cannot control how others see you, no matter what your efforts may be.
