Born today, you will likely have learned at an early age that you can open doors and influence people by putting the more unusual aspects of your complex personality on display -- which will usually mean surprising others with behavior that is anything but "normal" or "expected." You have a kind of genius for bringing people together under the most unusual, or even strained, of circumstances.
You do not always keep your personal affairs in order, but that is perhaps because your focus is so often on the more peripheral aspects of your daily life -- or upon your career, which at times is your No. 1 concern. Still, one day it will certainly dawn on you that you are in need of some constancy in your love life -- and you can surely have it!
Also born on this date are: Mother Teresa, religious leader; Chris Pine, actor; Macaulay Culkin, actor; Melissa McCarthy, actress; Geraldine Ferraro, politician; Branford Marsalis, musician; Michael Jeter, actor.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 27
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You mustn't take things so seriously that you are unable to find enjoyment in what you do today. Even a difficult task can bring you pleasure.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You have much to choose from today -- but that may actually work against you right now, as you are not seeing things in a detailed manner.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're waiting for something today to be as enjoyable as something similar was some time ago, but there's no comparison. It's time to move on!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are intrigued by the possibility of doing something that no one else has had a chance to do. You're ready to put a lot on the line.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Something you hear almost by accident early in the day is likely to stick with you no matter what you do. The significance of it becomes clear.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Pay close attention to the things that get unusual reactions from you today. What you learn will be useful very soon. Make a definite plan.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Read the signs as you come upon them today to get a clear picture of where you've been and where you're going. Don't be careless!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You receive a warning that stops you in your tracks for a time today. Later, when you realize what's really going on, you'll get moving again.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're not going to know which advice is best for you today until you study it all with care. Your instincts tell you what's what.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You know what you want to do today -- but you also know that it is not what others want you to do. This is a conflict you must resolve.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The more you help others today, the more fun you're likely to have. You can experiment with some new methods without taking much risk.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You sense that you're nearing a dangerous point in your current endeavors. Does that mean you should stop and reset? Take a bold approach!
