Born today, you are one of the most straightforward, honest and even challenging individuals born under your sign, and you will take advantage of almost any opportunity to advertise how you feel, what you think or what you believe to those who might feel, think or believe otherwise. It's not that you are trying to impose your views on others but that you believe in the value of sharing opposing views as a means to come together with those who are different from yourself.
You're not afraid of facing danger, and there are times in which you do not recognize that a situation may be dangerous -- which is perhaps the most dangerous situation of all! What is unacceptable, of course, is endangering others, and you must always work to avoid unwillingly pulling other people into dangerous situations.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 4
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- The temporary is just that, and you needn't spend a lot of energy solving a problem that is likely to evaporate entirely on its own.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Now is no time to pass the buck or shirk your responsibilities in any way. Yes, you have work to do, but it's nothing you can't do well.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You receive a promise today that lifts your spirits and allows you to move into a new phase with confidence. What you do now sets the tone.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your day is likely to begin very much like every other -- but very soon you may choose to break that comfortable routine to help someone.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A recent miscalculation is likely to be felt today in no uncertain terms. You can reverse any negative developments before day's end.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Upon waking today you'll know what must be done. Don't let your work fall behind before you even get it started, however.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You are at risk for something that you cannot afford today, though what looms ahead of you is not likely to be a lasting crisis.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may wonder how you got from there to here, but a look back over the most recent leg of your journey tells you a lot. It all makes sense!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're growing weary of telling the same story again and again. Today you may have a brand new one to tell that you enjoy far more.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- There's no reason for you to pack up and get out -- yet. You and a partner can accomplish much if your plans are complete and detailed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You must keep yourself from falling into the very traps that you've set for someone else. Perhaps it's time to rethink your methods.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Tending to problems one at a time is the simplest approach, and usually the best -- but today you're facing something that tells you otherwise.
