Born today, you live almost entirely in your head, and you deal daily with things as you perceive them. This doesn't mean that you cannot work and play well with others; on the contrary, you have the makings of a great collaborator, but you have to decide to collaborate; you won't be unintentionally drawn into anything that requires cooperation, collaboration or teamwork.
You have very specific tastes, and you will rarely if ever betray them simply to make someone happy by "giving it a try." Indeed, you won't try anything that you think you might not like! Some may suggest this goes against your penchant for learning -- and teaching -- and perhaps it does. But if this is your one true inconsistency, you can be perfectly happy with it, surely!
Also born on this date are: Lucille Ball, actress and producer; Andy Warhol, artist; Geri Halliwell, singer; Robert Mitchum, actor; Vera Farmiga, actress; Alexander Fleming, scientist; M. Night Shyamalan, director and screenwriter.
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.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your inner passions are likely to come to the surface in a way that surprises even you and your allies. This isn't something to be repeated.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If you can help it, you'll want to avoid anyone who chooses to indulge in speculation and guesswork today. Stick to the facts available to you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're likely to get your just rewards today -- but perhaps that's what you're afraid of! You have a chance to fix what was recently broken.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can get more than you bargained for today on almost all fronts. Things are likely to speed up for you when others are slowing down.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can get much from the day, provided you do not approach problems as if you already know what the outcome will be. Be flexible at all times.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can make the best of any opportunity that presents itself today. A friend chooses to boast for you since you won't for yourself.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be able to capture something quite rare today, but it's not something you're going to want to hang on to for long. Give it its liberty!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may not understand why someone has sent you a certain warning, as you see no dangers ahead. This is a matter of interpretation, surely.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You will do almost anything to see your plans come to fruition today. By day's end, you may be in a very different place, personally.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- There's no point in following anyone down a rabbit hole of negativity today. Focus instead on those who will move forward with you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Look closely at your personal affairs, and you'll see you and a rival are really not very different. Strike a bargain.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Things go according to plan today, for the most part. One or two obstacles may appear before you, but they should be easily overcome.
