Born today, you are one of those lucky individuals success is likely to come to very quickly, and relatively easily! You have been endowed with tremendous talents, and the opportunity to put them on full display is likely to be yours at a remarkably early age. Indeed, you're likely to come "from nowhere" and take the world by storm -- when in fact you will be realizing a dream toward which you have been working in an almost single-minded fashion for quite a long time.
You are not likely to take your journey alone; by your side is likely to be a good friend or two who will complement you perfectly with his or her own special skills and traits. Alone, you can do much -- but together, you may find that you can do virtually anything!
Also born on this date are: Jennifer Lawrence, actress; Ben Affleck, actor and director; Napoleon Bonaparte, statesman; Julia Child, celebrity chef; Debra Messing, actress; Mike Connors, actor; Ethel Barrymore, actress.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 16
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- A challenge arises today that will soon have you tapping into all kinds of skills you haven't used lately. You can overcome it with style!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You're likely to attract quite an audience today if you stay on course and do what lies ahead. Are you ready to be the center of attention?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may have to play a more important role in someone else's affairs today than you had expected. Still, he or she could be in no better hands.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A rough start gives way to smooth sailing later in the day. You will begin to measure gains almost immediately, but expect an ebb and flow.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- What someone else can't do, you may be able to do quite well -- even though you'll be jumping into a situation that may not be familiar to you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may have to talk yourself into something that you would otherwise steer clear of -- but the reason, and possible rewards, are clear.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will have a chance to revisit something today that is a favorite of yours. Inspiration results, and a new project may be conceived.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your confidence may take a hit today, thanks to someone not being in the right place at the right time. Recovery is assured but could take time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not get the commitment from friends you were hoping for, but one or two will be willing to give you some time and attention.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Don't be fooled by appearances today! You'll want to get down to the nitty-gritty, where how things look don't matter at all.
