Born today, you are not one of those to announce your every move or give a running report of what you are doing and why -- especially if it is something important that you are working on. The more important something is, the more likely you are to keep mum about it; you believe that talking about it can distract you from doing it and deplete your reserves of energy, inspiration and ideas. You wait until all is completed before unveiling your work -- and the reaction is usually overwhelmingly positive.
Your energy is high, your dedication is complete and you're not one to give up on something just because it gets difficult. You thrive on difficulty -- to a point. You are no fool, certainly, and when there is no chance or likelihood of success you will certainly abandon your efforts and move on to something else!
Also born on this date are: Kobe Bryant, basketball player; River Phoenix, actor; Gene Kelly, actor, dancer, choreographer and director; Scott Caan, actor; Barbara Eden, actress; Rick Springfield, singer and actor; Keith Moon, drummer.
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.
SATURDAY, AUGUST 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're likely to find that you are only weakening your position today by trying to explain yourself. Let what you do stand on its own.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not understand how your thoughts and feelings work together today, but you must assume that they do. There's a mystery to solve.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You likely have little or no time to spend looking for an "easy" way out of a certain situation. The hard way may be the only way -- period.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're not likely to forget what happens today for a very long time -- and it's the little things that have the most profound impact on you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don't stop until you cross the finish line today. There are those who would slow your progress if they could, but they are not a factor -- yet.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll want to look carefully at all that is going on beneath the surface today. You'll know what you must do by day's end.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Information comes to you in fits and starts today. You'll have the chance to give someone else his or her due -- and take credit for it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You've decided there's no difference between you and someone you admire -- so there's no reason you can't equal his or her creative output.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're giving someone else a little more of a head start today than anyone else. Is this fair? Perhaps that question is not one to ask.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You'll understand what's going on around you only after you study trends that have led you to where you are. Then it all makes sense!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The usual and familiar may make you quite uncomfortable today for some reason, whereas you feel right at home with the new and untried.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Go fishing today and you'll reel in the information you need. Don't wait until you receive warnings that it will soon be "too late."
