Born today, you are a quietly powerful individual with tremendous ambition -- and the talents you need to satisfy your ambition in any of a number of different ways. Indeed, when you are young, it may be quite difficult for you to decide how best to spend your life, for you may receive a calling of sorts from many different professions.
Though the ability to make decisions quickly and correctly may be a skill you develop slowly, in your maturity you will be the kind of person other people want to follow because you don't let yourself be cowed by options and choices.
Also born on this date are: Dustin Hoffman, actor; Esther Williams, swimmer and actress; Connie Stevens, actress; Mel Tillis, singer and songwriter; Rory Calhoun, actor; Emiliano Zapata, war hero.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 9
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You can pick up the pace, but don't leave someone you care about in the dust. You may have further to go than you had anticipated.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must remain open and receptive to those who come at things from a very different perspective. This may be a perfect time to work together.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Try a different approach today, and you may be surprised to learn that a certain problem can actually be solved without a lot of strain.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Others come to a verdict about your efforts in little time today. What happens next depends in large part upon how you interpret the decision.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You cannot be everywhere at once, of course, so you must make a plan that allows you maximum flexibility and mobility. Many decisions will be made.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Domestic comfort is the very thing you need today -- and it's surely available to you, provided you make yourself available to loved ones.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- What goes around certainly comes around today -- and this kind of tit for tat will continue for a long time if you let it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- It's a good day to immerse yourself in something that you can enjoy entirely on your own -- but you mustn't disappear completely!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You know better than to cross a certain line today. You can approach it, though, and that will send an important message.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You will receive a challenge from someone who thinks he or she is ready to take you on. Though confident, you mustn't underestimate this opponent!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A more energetic approach to a long-standing problem gets things moving today. A solution may be at hand if you keep this up all day long.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- This is a good day to test out a theory you've been developing for quite some time. Those who disagree with you provide good information.
