Born today, you are focused, dedicated, hardworking and always original in your planning and execution of new endeavors. Whether or not you were raised with a healthy work ethic and desire to excel, those traits will surely be at the center of your personality as you approach adulthood and will compel you to accomplish great things in your lifetime -- provided, of course, that you are able to choose a line of work that satisfies your desire to show off, for -- like it or not -- that is also a very important part of your makeup.
You can be fiercely private, and you will do all you must to keep your personal life and your professional life as separate as possible. This may prove tricky at times, for you are quick to make friends with those who share your professional ambitions -- and often you allow friendship to be turned into something more.
Also born on this date are: J.K. Rowling, author; Wesley Snipes, actor; Zac Brown, singer; Ted Cassidy, actor; Richard Griffiths, actor; Michael Biehn, actor; Geraldine Chaplin, actress.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 1
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Signs and symbols are all over the place, and you'll want to interpret as many as you can before anyone else is able to get the jump on you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You've been misled recently, but there's no one to point your finger at unless you're looking in a mirror. You are the responsible party.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A difference of opinion is likely to get out of hand today. Fortunately, you'll be in the right place at the right time and can work wonders.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- What someone else calls a shortcut is not likely to offer you an easy way out. You're going to have to do what you've always done.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It's that time once again, and you know just what you have to do today to satisfy those who are looking over your shoulder. Be creative!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may be stumped by something today that someone has already figured out. Why not join forces? Cooperation can benefit you both.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- The inevitable will have to be faced very soon, but whether it's today is entirely up to you. You likely want to get it over with!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your reaction to an unexpected development may surprise those who were responsible for it. It's back to the drawing board!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Others are behaving as they are because of mere suggestions, but you should hold tight until news comes of what's really happening.
