Born today, you are what others so often call a "mover and a shaker" -- someone who can get things done not necessarily because you do them yourself, but because you inspire others to do them or engage the services of a loyal team that helps you accomplish what others could not. Indeed, your one great talent may be the ability to coax others to work with you -- and for you; your powers of persuasion are tremendous.
While you may come across as impenetrable and invulnerable, the fact is that you are sentimental in the extreme when it comes to love and family. You will do anything for loved ones, and adoring words from the object of your affections can at times reduce you to a kind of foolishness of which you would be ashamed in any other circumstance.
Also born on this date are: Aaron Paul, actor; Paul Reubens, actor; Lyndon B. Johnson, U.S. president; Tuesday Weld, actress; Daryl Dragon, musician; Martha Raye, actress; G.W. Bailey, actor.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 28
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You'll find yourself the center of attention on at least one important occasion today -- but soon you'll want to pass the baton to another.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You don't have to follow in another's footsteps today simply because that's what others have been doing. Follow your instincts; go your own way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can't expect to be given any special consideration today. You must follow the rules and guidelines that everyone is expected to follow.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be pulled off course today by something you can't see or hear -- but you will surely feel it. Recovery may take time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Approval comes from unusual sources today, but that hardly matters. The important thing is that your plans and methods prove effective.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You may not understand completely what is being asked of you, but you have a sense that something very good will come of it. Do it!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may not be feeling at all sentimental about a certain event that has others taking trips down memory lane. Well, to each his own!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Before heading off on a new adventure, it's a good idea to touch base with a few choice friends and family members. Share your plans.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may require some clarification from someone in charge before you understand fully what is expected of you. You'll get started soon.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You can come up with a few clever solutions to a problem, or you can devise one that will be permanent. There's really no choice here!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- It may not be an easy time for you as you face criticism and questions from allies as well as rivals -- but you must stay the course!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You derive a great deal of benefit today from allying yourself with someone who does things differently -- and whose motives are different, too.
