Born today, you are a positive, uplifting individual, the kind other people not only want to be around, but the kind they can look up to and follow because you provide a sense of importance, vitality and purpose to all those with whom you come in contact. You are, in a sense, a great equalizer: Everyone is the same who falls under your gaze -- and always of the highest possible quality!
You sometimes let yourself get away with a great deal and view yourself rather unrealistically as a result. But when the tide turns and you are given an honest view of the "real you," you certainly see things about yourself you do not like. This is enough to make you want to work on yourself on a regular basis.
Also born on this date are: Tom Brady, football player; Martha Stewart, businesswoman; Tony Bennett, singer; Martin Sheen, actor; John C. McGinley, actor; John Landis, director.
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.
TUESDAY, AUGUST 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may encounter someone who is dead set against anything you may propose, simply because it's you who's proposing it. Is this really fair?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The time has come for you to acknowledge that someone is giving it his or her all, just as you are. There's no need to raise a fuss.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- That which affects you indirectly today is likely to be more important to you in the near future. Pay attention to all such developments.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may not be eager to travel today, but the fact is that you must get from here to there and back again in the most efficient way possible.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A collection of artifacts and memorabilia will help you tomorrow when you work. The past and the present merge in an interesting way today.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The questions you ask today will lead you down some interesting paths, whether or not you get the answers you're looking for at this time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Take care that you don't send someone the wrong message because your tone of voice conveys erroneous information. Be calm, and play it safe.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're looking forward to taking a trip that allows you to do things you normally wouldn't do at home -- but certain facts must be recognized.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The routine you're eager to establish around the home may not give you all you expect -- but only because you're not yet fully committed.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You recognize before it's too late that someone isn't providing what was promised. There are many steps you can take to remedy this situation.
