Born today, you must always keep the distinction between what is real and what is illusory squarely in mind, lest you begin to believe that your own imaginings are more real than they truly are and try to live a life that is simply not sustainable in the real world. To say that you are creative and imaginative is one of the great understatements, for you live almost entirely according to realities that you conjure in your own mind that may, in fact, have little to do with the way the world works -- and that's the big danger.
You are likely to be something of a "late bloomer" when it comes to love and romance, but once you do begin playing the game, you may become quite an expert -- but you must always take care that you don't ever come across as insincere.
Also born on this date are: Michael Jackson, singer; Ingrid Bergman, actress; Lea Michele, actress and singer; John McCain, politician; Isabel Sanford, actress; Elliott Gould, actor; Charlie "Bird" Parker, musician; John Locke, philosopher.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 30
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Feel free to put in your two cents the moment you are asked to do so today. You'll find that your thoughts and opinions are vital.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The choice you have to make today may not be the easiest, but if you look at it from the correct perspective, it won't be the hardest, either.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You'll surely want to avoid any behavior that comes across as passive-aggressive. Be direct -- especially in your interactions with teammates.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may come under fire today for something you had nothing to do with originally. Follow the evidence, and all will be made clear, surely.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Honesty is, once again, the best policy today -- but how you say things is just as important as the content of your speech. Remain low-key.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You needn't approach everything with your perfectionist's eye today; it's more important to move forward than to do so without error.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may have to tackle a project alone today when, in the past, you've had more than enough help. This effort, while unusual, will pay off.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You are more than willing to do what must be done today, but you'll have to wait for others to get out of the way. This is no time for crowds!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- While others are reacting to the unknown, you'll be processing the known and expected and making good use of it as you win the day.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're likely to win an important personal battle today, but you mustn't think that the conflict is over. There is more to come -- and soon.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- The simplest approach will almost surely prove the wisest approach today. You risk much by overcomplicating the central issues at home.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You're eager to see what is in store for you tomorrow -- but a clear view of the immediate future may not be yours today. Be patient.
