Born today, you are likely to find yourself at the head of one movement or another from your earliest years when you were likely elected president of your class! You have what it takes to provide solid, creative, visionary leadership, and you always try to keep your finger on the pulse of your community. In this way, you are able to determine quickly and accurately what issues are most important to the most people and engage people productively to make the change they are looking for in their lives.
You have a quick wit and a way with words, and you know how to attract an audience. That you will often be in the public eye is something you must get used to, for no matter how good you are with crowds, you also love your privacy -- and nothing makes you more content than a quiet evening at home.
Also born on this date are: Kristen Wiig, actress and writer; Tori Amos, singer; Giada De Laurentiis, celebrity chef; Valerie Harper, actress; Cindy Williams, actress; Claude Debussy, composer; Dorothy Parker, author; Carl Yastrzemski, baseball player; Bill Parcells, football coach; Honor Blackman, actress.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 23
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your reaction to what someone does today mustn't reveal too much about how you truly feel. Be careful when you share with others.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- This is a good day to start something over that hasn't paid off the way you had hoped. Make a few clever adjustments, and you'll soon turn a profit.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Pay attention to what you dreamed last night, and you'll be much more prepared for what you're likely to face this afternoon and evening.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can expect your own allies to adapt to a change in the rules very quickly, indeed, but it's your competitors you must keep an eye on!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A personal sacrifice may be unavoidable today -- but you can lessen its impact by taking advantage of someone's timing. Watch and wait.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not be able to do everything as planned today, but even just a few small adjustments can have a big effect and improve your odds.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will want to smooth something over today before it gets out of control. The first step is to acknowledge the role you've been playing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are no stranger to restrictions and limitations, but today you're likely to enjoy a little more freedom than you first expected.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Gauge your interactions with others carefully today, and try to see things as objectively as possible. Headway is made.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Others may question either your motives or your methods, but you know you're doing things that must be done, regardless.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You may not adjust to a new way of doing things all that quickly today, but if you give yourself time, you'll soon be considered an expert.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You are in a position that allows you to see both sides of a rather volatile argument. This means you can and must exert a positive influence.
