Born today, you are likely to be pulled in many different directions throughout your lifetime, and your single greatest challenge will be to determine accurately whether, at any given moment, you should allow yourself to be controlled by the stars -- or other influences -- in such a way, or whether you would be better to stand your ground and put up a fight against the forces that would drive you against your will this way or that.
There may come a time in your life in which you are given a choice that, when made, will likely dictate the direction of your life for quite some time to come. Earthly rewards or inner contentment? That's the decision you are going to have to make, and much of your life up to that point will likely be spent in preparation for making it -- and making it correctly!
Also born on this date are: J.K. Rowling, author; Wesley Snipes, actor; Zac Brown, singer; Ted Cassidy, actor; Richard Griffiths, actor; Michael Biehn, actor; Geraldine Chaplin, actress.
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 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're used to doing things your own way, surely, but today you may not feel inspired. Why not join forces with someone like yourself?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The sooner you're able to shift gears and focus on a different goal, the sooner you'll begin to make measurable progress. Get going!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're likely to be frustrated by someone who seems to be working against you. How you react is more important during afternoon hours.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Do not put off today that which you know full well you should get done today. Such procrastination can actually be dangerous at this time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're after something that you can't quite identify, but you know you'll be sitting pretty when at last it's yours. Keep it up!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can afford to be a little more flexible today, especially when it comes to those whose motives are not directly at odds with yours.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The road before you looks straight and clear today, but there may be hidden obstacles. You don't want to move at an excessive speed.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're expecting things to be constant as you move through your day, but the more things change, the more you'll be able to enjoy.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- That which you are most eagerly anticipating is likely to come to pass today -- in whole or in part. Don't complain! You'll get your due.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Usually one to bend the rules when it suits you, today you're likely to follow them to the letter because you know that someone is watching.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You cannot progress successfully toward a goal that is not clearly seen in your mind's eye. You must be sure you know where you're going!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Asking the right questions is just as important today as giving the right answers. It all depends on which situations you find yourself in.
