Born today, you may not always know what is going on with the people around you, but you always know what is going on with you. You are ambitious and somewhat covetous -- indeed, you are easily jealous. You are the kind of person who too often sees the grass as greener on the other side of the fence, but what sets you apart from so many other people is your willingness to uproot yourself, jump the fence and settle in to make a home for yourself in a new, much "greener" place. You don't really care about criticism; you are confident that by living your life in your way you will attract perhaps more than your fair share, usually from those who cannot keep up with you.
You like to reinvent yourself. Still, you will always maintain close ties to family, friends and the traditions that define your "home." What you seek is belonging; nothing is more important to you in the world.
Also born on this date are: Mother Teresa, religious leader; Chris Pine, actor; Macaulay Culkin, actor; Melissa McCarthy, actress; Geraldine Ferraro, politician; Branford Marsalis, musician; Michael Jeter, actor.

MONDAY, AUGUST 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You must stick to your guns today, and trust that your priorities are correctly in line. What you do right now will have a lasting effect.
TAURUS (April 20-March 20) -- You may find yourself engaged in some kind of scavenger hunt, and what you find is likely to be quite valuable -- at least to you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A matter of honor cannot be ignored or avoided today. You must be willing to stand by what you believe in, even if it incurs a certain hardship.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You've made a plan and you're fully prepared to implement it -- so what's the holdup? Someone may be standing in your way -- but who?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You mustn't let anyone tell you that your contribution isn't valuable today. On the contrary, much is made possible because you're involved.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You cannot expect someone else to read your mind -- even someone close to you. You must be willing to reveal certain secrets today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The information you share with friends and/or co-workers is nothing new exactly, but it's likely to affect everyone in a new way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Things may slow down somewhat, but that will allow you to take a breath and assess your progress. Be honest with yourself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be unaware of how your actions are affecting someone else -- and vice versa. It may be time to talk things through in detail.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can get a great deal done today if you are willing to close yourself off for a time and focus squarely on the task at hand.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can gain much, but you may be required to give something in the process. Only you can determine if you will ultimately come out ahead.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You mustn't keep silent about a certain issue that is becoming toxic within your key relationships. It's time to deal with it!
