Born today, you are an energetic, forceful and compelling individual. You have a knack for changing the dynamic of a room simply by entering it, and you don't have to do much to attract attention or win the praise of those around you. You are charismatic and creative and always able to work with someone whose ideas are in sync with your own. Indeed, you work well both in groups and on your own, and you rarely have a preference when it comes to solo or team efforts -- as long as the goal you are working toward is one that you value highly.
Your sense of destiny is strong, and you are confident that if you are given even a small chance you can accomplish big things -- because such an outcome has been preordained, of course! You don't have to succeed at everything you do, but you will always work hard to ensure that you enjoy more gains than losses in work and relationships.
Also born on this date are: Antonio Banderas, actor; Suzanne Collins, author; Angie Harmon, actress; Herbert Hoover, U.S. president; Josh Gates, TV show host and producer; Jack Haley, actor; Rosanna Arquette, actress; Sam Warner, producer.
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.
SUNDAY, AUGUST 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Take it easy today when the going gets tough toward midday; you must have plenty of fuel left in the tank to make a final productive push.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can score a great many points today, but even that might not put you over the top. The contest you are in is sure to be prolonged further.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You've been trying to assess another's performance based upon your own, but that's not being fair to either party. Try to be more objective.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You've been basing decisions upon a false assumption lately. Today, you'll be able to tell fact from fiction; adjust your approach accordingly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your command of certain key issues will serve you very well -- but you must expect to face opposition from one who is envious.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- It may be time to calibrate your responses to what goes on around you, as there has been far too much overreaction lately for your own good.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Guesswork may be frowned upon in some circles, but you know that anything that yields the correct answer will work. Keep on guessing!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You will want to buckle down in the face of unexpected opposition today. Don't let anyone tell you what you've already done doesn't count.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You must be willing to follow certain rules today; without them, you're likely to be at sea without any mode of navigation at your disposal.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- What you do early in the morning may prove even more important to you later in the day when your energy and enthusiasm are running low.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- There's a method to your madness today, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Listen to those who are thinking of the common good.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You and a co-worker may be after the same overall result, but your methods differ wildly. It's time to come to some kind of agreement.
