Born today, you are one of the most mysterious individuals born under your sign -- and perhaps even the most, period! There is much about you that others do not understand, and they are actually likely to have a much harder time getting to know the "real you" than any other Leo natives. There are numerous facets to your complex personality, but each one shines brightly of its own accord -- and you are rather like a diamond in this way, in which the true luster of your personality is the sum of each individual shining facet.
You reserve much about yourself for family, loved ones and special friends. Indeed, it may not occur to the world at large that your "public" persona is something you put forward quite intentionally, to deflect from that part of yourself that is sensitive and vulnerable.
Also born on this date are: James Baldwin, author; Myrna Loy, actress; Mary-Louise Parker, actress; Victoria Jackson, actress and comedian; Peter O'Toole, actor; Margot Robbie, 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.
MONDAY, AUGUST 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It may be more difficult today to do what you are told than it was yesterday. It could be that you're simply overreacting to someone's tone.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You know just how to press someone's buttons, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea. Treat him or her the way you expect to be treated.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- The good and the bad may become somewhat confused in your mind today as you deal with an issue that is anything but simple to figure out.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can prove that your ideas are valid and updated today, merely by letting things play out the way they will. Don't force the issue.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may be tempted to do something against the grain today, if only to get a reaction from those who have turned away from you of late.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are in a position of some authority today, but that doesn't mean that you must go around giving orders. A subtle approach is advised.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- If you wake up feeling down in the dumps, the quicker you do something productive, the sooner you'll feel like yourself again.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Don't be afraid to ask for something you feel you deserve today. You know what's coming to you, and you know how valuable it will be.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're not likely to enjoy any special privileges today, but if you follow the right person, his or her good luck should rub off on you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Stick to your schedule today, and don't let anyone distract you from the job at hand. You can demonstrate the value of multitasking.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You mustn't make the mistake of thinking that if something works for you it must work for everyone. Remember: To each his own!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Doing the right thing today may require you to separate from the crowd -- but that's nothing new to you. Your instincts are keen.
