Born today, you are not always perfectly suited to jobs and assignments that you may be given, but this is because you have an air of expertise about you that has other people thinking that you'd be quite good at almost anything -- but you know from experience this is not the case. When the truth comes out and you are unable to meet expectations, you do not take it too much to heart, and you can work with others with more skill and experience to undo any mistakes you may have made.
Just as you learn from experience on the job that not all jobs are for you, you will learn that not all relationships are for you either. You must learn to pick and choose your partners with great care.
Also born on this date are: Antonio Banderas, actor; Suzanne Collins, author; Joanna Garcia, actress; Herbert Hoover, U.S. president; Josh Gates, TV show host and producer; Jack Haley, actor; Rosanna Arquette, actress; Sam Warner, producer.
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 11
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Things seem to be more complicated than you had expected today -- but that may simply be a product of errant perception. Look again.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Just because something doesn't make you smile out of enjoyment doesn't mean it can be avoided altogether today. Sometimes work is work.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Others see you for what you really are today -- and that may prove to be more than you think! Why not listen to those who praise you?
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can expect one or two new doors to be opened to you today -- but if you're not ready to walk through them, it will amount to nothing.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You're going to want to work closely with a friend or family member to ensure that neither of you spends too much time or money at once.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A collaboration of sorts results in something quite unexpected, and this is something you will try to repeat in the future!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may not enjoy all the success you were hoping for today, but the progress you make will put you much closer to a goal.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Focus on only one endeavor and you're almost certain to miss out on more than one opportunity that will become available to you today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Don't try too many things at once today! You must stay in control -- and that means keeping your ambition on a leash for the time being.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have cause to think back on a time when things were "better" than they are now. Honest assessment tells you that right now could be worse.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to blossom under someone's unexpected tutelage today. What happens next can be manipulated to give you a long-term advantage.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You mustn't think that once you've said what you have to say that everything will fall out as planned. You must be diligent -- and vigilant!
