Born today, you are not one who can be counted on to do what is demanded in any given situation, for you are willful and always keenly interested in following your heart. Does this mean that you're not to be relied on at all? Certainly not! Indeed, you are trustworthy and loyal, but it is up to others to know just what can be asked of you. Those who think that you'll follow the rules are sure to be disappointed; those who know you're going to be independent at all costs can surely learn to work with you -- and ultimately find that your unique way of doing things can prove beneficial. Where others see obstacles, you see opportunities; where others react with trepidation, you react with enthusiasm.
Anyone who becomes romantically involved with you had better be ready for anything, for that's what you're likely to provide -- anything at any time, whether it is expected, or even desired. There are no rules for love as far as you are concerned, except one: be passionate! You follow that rule and always go where it takes you.
Also born on this date are: Aaron Paul, actor; Paul Reubens, actor; Lyndon B. Johnson, U.S. president; Tuesday Weld, actress; Daryl Dragon, musician; Martha Raye, actress; Tom Ford, fashion designer.
TUESDAY, AUGUST 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Though someone else is taking a certain situation very seriously, you may be thinking it's all in fun. This must be straightened out!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Any errors you make today are only made worse if you try to hide them. Be honest about what you've done -- and what you're likely to do.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- How you use all available resources will make a big difference today. You mustn't be wasteful -- and yet you mustn't be too stingy, either.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may find yourself grappling with many memories today. What is it about that certain episode from your past that affects you so?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're going to have to pick up the pace today if you want to keep up with someone whom you admire -- and from whom you always learn a great deal.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone is after you, but you know how to steer clear of any significant danger. You may have to admit to a past mistake before the day is out.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What comes your way today is sure to require more than mere instinct. You're going to have to apply some academic lessons, too.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may feel as though you have little to give to a current project. Is this more than mere fatigue? It's something to think about, surely.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- A chance encounter opens a door. You feel that there is more riding on this today than at any similar time in the past. Hang on!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Any choice you make today is likely to be premature. You can consider all options and hypothesize, but avoid any final decision.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Someone may be asking of you something that you simply cannot do. You're going to have to explain the reason why -- in no uncertain terms.
