Born today, you possess, like so many other of your Leo brothers and sisters, driving ambition and the ability and willingness to work harder than those around you to see that your aspirations are satisfied. You will do anything to succeed -- and that in itself is a double-edged sword. On one hand, it ensures that you will make your dreams come true; on the other hand, it allows for the possibility that you will take advantage of and mistreat other people on your way to the top. This second option is not one that you should consciously allow, certainly!
You have a vivid imagination, and you would do well to put it to work for you whenever you have the chance -- for you are likely to enjoy both inner contentment and financial success from any line of work that allows you to use your imagination to the fullest. You must not ever let it go unchecked, however, for that can be frightening!
Also born on this date are: Amy Adams, actress; Robert Plant, singer; Al Roker, TV personality; Isaac Hayes, composer; Ron Paul, politician; Benjamin Harrison, U.S. president; Don King, boxing promoter; Connie Chung, TV journalist; H.P. Lovecraft, author; Ray Wise, actor; Jacqueline Susann, author.
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.
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 21
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have a certain picture in your mind of what you'll see when you get where you're going. Where is that? Do you even know?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A discussion of what is right and wrong is likely to lead you down the rabbit hole today. You'll have to make sense of the senseless!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- An unexpected development puts you at odds with someone on your own team. In the end, a simple discussion can put to rest any conflict.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Even your most unusual ideas can be of use today. What begins as an unpopular notion is likely to take others by storm by day's end.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Showing others what you're up to today can serve a rather selfish purpose, but it may blunt the overall impact of your efforts. Think twice.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Reaching out to another may be misinterpreted or misunderstood if the timing isn't just right. Don't be too much in a hurry!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Time is on your side today, but that doesn't mean it's a commodity that you can fritter away, certainly. Be efficient in all your dealings.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may have to find a substitute today when someone playing a key role in a personal drama proves unavailable. This marks a shift.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- External forces, including the weather perhaps, are likely to influence you more than usual today. Travel may have to be restricted.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Share the wealth today and others will gladly give you what they can when you ask for it. It's a certain kind of assistance you'll need.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Putting yourself in another's shoes today will give you an unusual look at a situation you thought you understood. That's all changed!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your admiration for another's accomplishments is undiminished at this time, despite the fact that your relationship is strained.
