Born today, you are set on having things your way, even when it means butting heads with others who are just as stubborn as you are. Fights and conflicts of all kinds are just part of daily life as far as you are concerned, and you would rather deal with those who can answer you with the same fiery passion that you have than those who shrink from confrontation. You are quite the visionary.
You are at home in a wide variety of venues, and you are willing to jump into any kind of project so long as your skills will be put to the test. But what is most important to you, ultimately, is that you are allowed to do what you want in your own inimitable style so that the result is primarily a product of your imagination and efforts.
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.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 6
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- While you acknowledge that the times are changing, you may not be able to adjust your way of thinking about a certain key topic -- yet.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You must be ready and able to shift gears very quickly today when presented with an unexpected challenge by one who seems to have your number.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You have a few big issues to tend to today, but a smaller one is likely to attract your attention because of how it affects you in a personal way.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You may be at the end of a phase that has allowed you greater leeway at work -- but today you must make a plan that follows every rule.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- That which you are pursuing may actually be pursuing you, and you must come to terms today with an issue that simply refuses to fade away.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You must allow yourself to be more flexible at this time, despite the rules that have been limiting you in the past. There's room for growth.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The answers you seek are readily available, but you must ask the right questions before they reveal themselves. Self-knowledge is key.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- Anticipated events will be just as important as you think at this time -- but those you do not anticipate are likely to affect you even more.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may not be aware of all that you must avoid today. The more maneuverable you are, the better able you'll be to react appropriately.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Of course you want things to turn out right today, but before they do, you must navigate some tricky terrain that wasn't part of the plan.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your goals must be clear and comprehensible today -- not only to you, but also to those who have signed on to help you at this tricky time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Frustration today proves to be your No. 1 nemesis, and only you can keep it from holding you back. Your goal is nearer than you think.
