Born today, you are one of the most unpredictable individuals born under your sign, and the only thing you can really be counted on to do is to surprise even those who know you well again and again by breaking with your own traditions, doing your own thing in your own way and heeding no warnings or advice as you make your way in the world. You are something of an "experience junkie," in that you are constantly seeking out new things to do simply for the sake of doing them.
You are highly creative and you hold yourself and your talents in the highest possible esteem. The question, of course, is are you merely confident, or are you overconfident? You would suggest that there is no such thing as the latter, as your track record with new experiences can demonstrate: You don't often fail!
Also born on this date are: Aaron Paul, actor; Paul Reubens, actor; Lyndon B. Johnson, U.S. president; Tuesday Weld, actress; Daryl Dragon, musician; Martha Raye, actress; G.W. Bailey, actor.
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may choose to take a more philosophical approach than usual to a problem that, in the past, has required an aggressive, hands-on approach.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Others are eager to see what you have in the works, but you're not yet ready to put anything on display. You can tease them with some P.R.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You will have to wait your turn today, like it or not, and you'll surely be required to follow other rules as well. Take a laid-back approach.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You've been taking someone for granted of late, and today you'll realize that you're coming perilously close to destroying the relationship.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You've been confident about a certain endeavor, but upon waking today you may realize that you're not yet in the position you had hoped for.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Others are making deals that hold them in good stead. What's holding you back? You may be under the misconception that you aren't being heard.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Someone may try to stand in your way today, but that's all part of the current scenario. You expect it, and can deal with it in stride.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Your momentum shouldn't diminish today even as you deal with an unexpected issue. You may have to give someone a dose of his or her own medicine.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not be thrilled with any of the ideas being put forth by those around you, but you must give at least one of them a try.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You must do all you can today to avoid an extreme stance on any key issue. You can get much done by acknowledging the validity of all views.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It may be time for you to take a stand against something that has rubbed you the wrong way for quite some time. This is a major issue!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may find yourself grappling with facts and figures today when, in fact, you would be wise to look at the bigger, broader picture.
