Born today, you are a powerful, charismatic and forward-thinking individual who, in many ways besides these, deserves the moniker "force of nature" -- and that's how other people know you! Indeed, you have a way of dominating almost any situation in which you find yourself. You're likely to be told off on more than one occasion, and though you're not one to change to suit someone's needs or desires you can alter your own behavior to ensure that you don't rub other people the wrong way.
You may score a number of firsts in your lifetime, and yet no one may know it, for they are the kinds of subtle but important things that can easily be overlooked. On the other hand, you may enjoy at least one opportunity to do something in the public eye that is a real game changer -- and when you change the game, it stays changed!
Also born on this date are: Neil Armstrong, astronaut and first man on the moon; Maureen McCormick, actress; Patrick Ewing, basketball player; Loni Anderson, actress; John Huston, director; Terri Clark, singer.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you do early in the day is likely to elevate your later efforts and propel you very quickly toward the finish line. Enjoy the ride!
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone far away from you physically is likely to have quite an influence on you psychologically throughout what may be an unusual day.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may feel strangely out of sorts today -- not "bad" in any specific way, but rather as if something is somehow missing or out of place.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You are waiting for someone else to give you a sign that all is well, but you may have placed your trust in the wrong person. Reconsider your options.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- It may be more difficult than usual to schedule things in such a way that everyone's efforts are favored at some point -- but do try to be fair!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You'll find yourself in charge of something that is anything but clear and concrete -- but you should be able to decipher things successfully.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may find yourself struggling with instructions that do not make much sense to you -- or are you merely being resistant? Look inward!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may be quite surprised to discover that there are many new ways of doing something that you are free to try. Time favors your efforts today.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You're doing everything you can to remain in someone's thoughts, but some of what you're doing should be reconceived.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You have been bucking certain trends for quite some time, but today quite suddenly you may find that conforming is the better bet.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Now is no time to forget those who have served you so well in the past -- especially since you'll have the chance to thank them properly today.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Usually strong-willed, you may find yourself unable to stand up against someone who is using unfair tactics against you. This shouldn't last long.
