Born today, you are a portrait of strength, stability and decisiveness -- but beneath the surface, you may be hiding insecurities and fears of which no one, save those who know you best, is at all aware. You are aware of it too, of course, and you spend a great deal of your time balancing your more confident, aggressive side and that part of your personality that would, if given complete liberty, hide away from the rest of the world and prevent you from accomplishing much.
Because you spend so much of your life playing the role of one who is unfazed by life's complications and difficulties, you depend upon a quiet and supportive home life to give you the support you need during your downtime.
Also born on this date are: Whitney Houston, singer; Anna Kendrick, actress; Sam Elliott, actor; Deion Sanders, football player; Gillian Anderson, actress; Michael Kors, designer; Eric Bana, actor; Melanie Griffith, 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 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You have no time to waste today and much to get done before someone crashes your party and makes you adopt a whole different methodology.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may be around people who lose control today, but you must not. Indeed, the more you remain calm and rational, the better for everyone!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You are able to dream up something that will take even your critics by storm -- and, soon, both your reputation and your wallet will expand.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be struggling with what is "normal" and what is not. Today, that should be your last concern; sticking to the plan is what counts.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You can pull many people together today and help them come to a consensus about an important issue. This won't be the only time, surely!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You mustn't allow yourself to become comfortable with a situation that is, right now, inconvenient in the extreme. Stay active and responsive.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can put the pieces of a puzzle together today in such a way that you never again lose sight of the big picture. This is progress!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are capable of doing much more than you are allowed to do right now, but this is no time for pushing back. Let things be -- for now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You will experience something that takes you back in time and has you remembering things that still make a big difference to you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- A test of wills is far more important to win today than a test of skills. Ultimately, he who sticks with it longer will prevail.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You can make a dream come true today, but there are likely to be those who are underwhelmed. That's certainly of no concern to you!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You know you'll have to take a risk today if you want to stay in the game, but you may be surprised to learn just what is at stake.
