Born today, you are one of those rare individuals driven by a genuine desire to present yourself to the world as an example of what a human being can be. Though not everyone born on this date will pursue the same personal or career goals, all will make a life of developing themselves as fully as possible. This means, of course, that your life will be one of continual discovery -- for you must surely discover something about yourself before you are able to develop it.
You tend to see things in stark contrast -- in black and white rather than in shades of gray. But this is all part of your commitment to self; you cannot and will not deal in equivocation or uncertainty of any kind, personally or professionally. At any given moment, you are all in.
Also born on this date are: Barack Obama, U.S. president; Cole and Dylan Sprouse, actors; Louis Armstrong, singer and musician; Elizabeth, Queen Mother of Great Britain; Roger Clemens, baseball player; Percy Bysshe Shelley, poet.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
FRIDAY, AUGUST 5
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Take the time to prepare fully today for what you are expecting to come your way tomorrow so you'll be ready even for the unexpected.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- What someone does rubs you the wrong way today, but rather than advertise your displeasure, you had best to ask yourself what's going on!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Things may take on a strange sort of overtone today that you will want to study carefully -- but on your own. A trend begins now.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You'll certainly not be able to be in two places at once today, but you can fulfill your responsibilities to different bosses.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The company of others will please you today, as long as things go your way. You must take care that you don't lose control of the narrative.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The path you are on may lead you to a surprising spot today -- but this isn't your final destination, surely. Stock up on all resources.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- Your talents may shine very brightly today and still not lead you where you most want to go. You may soon require the guidance of an expert.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Take care that you're not simply showboating today when doing the things you think will get you somewhere. You may soon be facing a deadline.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not be seeing things in quite the same optimistic way that you are used to, but a friend lifts your spirits at just the right time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your work is likely to get mixed reviews today, but that will say more about what you've done in the past than anything new. Don't complain!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You'll be hoping for the best today, even as those around you are expecting quite the opposite. Your attitude makes all the difference.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Your satisfaction isn't likely to come from anything you accomplish today, but rather from interactions with others. Your eyes are open.
