Born today, you are always looking around to see who might be looking at you, for it both thrills and terrifies you that you may be watched doing -- well, anything! There is something in you that craves the limelight, and, at the same time, you are always very nervous to unveil anything before even a friendly audience. This "stage fright" may keep you from doing something that you know you will ultimately do well and fully enjoy. You must not let that happen often, of course, lest you miss out on the kinds of endeavors and accomplishments that may well define your life.
You can be something of a taskmaster when you are in charge of a project, but you never let this be your dominant tone when you are at home among loved ones.
Also born on this date are: Kobe Bryant, basketball player; River Phoenix, actor; Gene Kelly, actor, dancer, choreographer and director; Scott Caan, actor; Barbara Eden, actress; Rick Springfield, singer and actor; Keith Moon, drummer.

MONDAY, AUGUST 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Something familiar has you thinking of a way to get out of a situation that seems to be recurring. Thinking outside the box gets the job done.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Looking at certain things in a more sympathetic manner does you a world of good today, and allows you to keep stress levels low.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Focus on the little things that may each have a major impact today. You can see far better than others where a certain situation is leading.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're eager to have a "normal" day -- but what does that mean, exactly? There's no point in trying to re-create what happened long ago.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your ideas quickly rise to the top today and take priority over any others. This doesn't necessarily mean they'll be universally adopted, however.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Experimentation allows you to work with changing variables today without having to lay too much on the line -- yet. You solve an important puzzle.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You will want to synchronize certain shared activities with great care today so you and a partner are perfectly in step.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You will want to coordinate with another today to make the most out of a situation that isn't likely to last very long.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be feeling the onset of a mood that is all too familiar to you, and that makes you wish you were not in someone's line of fire.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Physical symptoms may not match a diagnosis you've recently received. This is the time to get a second opinion -- or even a third.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Take a look at how things are presented to you today, and study them for any patterns that you may be able to discern. You make a discovery.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll want to cross your fingers and hope that something recently done in error is not noticed by those in charge. Timing is a key issue.
