Born today, you have been endowed with tremendous abilities and a remarkable amount of self-awareness, and you can use these in tandem to reimagine and remake yourself in virtually any mold you choose. To say that you are a "chameleon" is surely an understatement; you approach life rather like an actor seeking out the most versatile roles -- and you reinvent yourself again and again to suit the times, prevailing circumstances and your own ever-evolving desires. You know what you want, but what you want changes with almost clocklike regularity -- and you know how to keep up with yourself and pursue new goals from one day to the next.
You work hard -- harder, perhaps, than any other individual born under your sign. You can be bold, brash and aggressive -- and yet you can also be quite meek and mild, courteous and affectionate. You don't insist on being always in the spotlight; you can give anyone who earns it a chance to shine -- and enjoy doing so.
Also born on this date are: James Baldwin, author; Myrna Loy, actress; Mary-Louise Parker, actress; Victoria Jackson, actress and comedian; Peter O'Toole, actor.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It doesn't matter what others are saying about you today; all that matters is that you are confident that your actions are the right ones.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Others may express surprise when you unveil what you have done. Indeed, you've likely broken some rules and embraced some unorthodox methods.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It's a good day to embrace vigorous debate about issues that affect you and those around you. It will be dangerous to overreact, however.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are tempted to walk in another's footsteps today, but know that you may encounter certain dangers for which you are not fully prepared.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You are likely to prove your own worst critic, and this can be dangerous if you begin to believe yourself. You're doing some good work; keep it up!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may enjoy praise today, but it's not likely to mean much if you begin to believe you are incapable of error. Be realistic at all times.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be given a pass today by someone who is more interested in finding out "why" than in pointing fingers at the "who."
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your positive outlook will serve others well -- perhaps even better than yourself! You understand that there are certain dangers to circumvent.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- As you consider the major issues you are facing today, you'll want to break them down into portions that you can deal with efficiently.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can lead others in the right direction today, but you'll have to deal with someone before the day is out who is not entirely on board.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The more you present yourself as an "expert" today, the more likely it will be that others will discover what it is you cannot do.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll want to pay close attention today to the way the "system" is working. Can you make the changes you think are necessary? Start now.
