Born today, you don't always get along with everyone with whom you come in contact, either personally or professionally, but that's something no one has to know -- or will know -- unless you choose to reveal it. And that right there is the secret to your success: You let others know only that which you wish to share, and everything else you keep hidden from the world at large. As far as you are concerned, who you really are is nobody else's business. This may sound rather arrogant -- and unrealistic -- but it stems from a sense of vulnerability that is, like so much else in your nature, hidden away. You simply won't let anyone hurt you -- not once, and certainly not twice!
Your talents are many, your ambitions strong and your willingness to forge ahead in territory that scares off others is one of your greatest gifts.
Also born on this date are: Wilt Chamberlain, basketball player; Kenny Rogers, singer; Kim Cattrall, actress; Count Basie, musician; Aubrey Beardsley, artist; Melvin Van Peebles, actor; Clarence Williams III, actor.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 22
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your belief system may be shaken somewhat by a revelation that touches you to your core. After a minor adjustment, all will be well once more.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You can't expect everyone to like what you do -- or to like you, for that matter. Those who do, however, give you all the support you need.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can achieve a great deal today without even showing up in person. From a distance, you're able to see the big picture and behave accordingly.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can encourage someone today who has not been responding well to recent developments. He or she will learn to trust you, surely.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have trouble navigating a certain social setting today -- until you realize you're not seeing things the right way.
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept. 22) -- Your popularity is on the rise, though you may not know exactly why. Give someone some special attention and you'll profit handsomely.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your respect for the rules -- and for someone special -- has held you in check lately, but today you may be tempted to throw caution to the wind.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- What you want isn't likely to be available to you just yet, so you'll have to put your yearnings on a back burner for the time being.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Your mood may not please those around you -- or yourself, for that matter -- but it's a natural result of something you couldn't control.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Something that should be quite easy proves unexpectedly difficult today -- but only because you're trying to take an unwise shortcut, perhaps.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You needn't sugarcoat the news you have to impart today. Tell it like it is, and be ready to help those who are most affected by it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You can move through your day with a good deal of confidence, thanks to news you receive before you get started. You'll dictate the pace.
