Born today, you have been endowed with several remarkable talents, any one of which could be developed in such a way as to lead you to the threshold of success. It's likely, however, that you will be compelled to develop one talent far more than any other, and this is the one that will be the foundation of your life -- professionally to be sure, but also personally. You no doubt prefer to be so immersed in your work that you are sometimes unaware of anyone or anything outside the sphere of your professional activity or influence -- and this can be a frustration to others who see in you so much more than the person who is so completely committed to their work.
You can sometimes be caught up in the whirlwind of your own overactive emotions -- for yes, you are one of the most emotional individuals born under your sign.
Also born on this date are: Whitney Houston, singer; Anna Kendrick, actress; Sam Elliott, actor; Deion Sanders, football player; Gillian Anderson, actress; Michael Kors, designer; Eric Bana, actor; Melanie Griffith, actress.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You're not about to make a success out of something you try for the very first time -- though you may get close. Some fine-tuning is required.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Tracking someone can be a fascinating way to pass the time today, but you must be sure to give your own work the attention it requires.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- When you talk about wanting more freedom, what is it you're really after? You must answer the question honestly today, then go from there.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Pay attention to what you find yourself thinking of during your downtime today; it's likely to tell you something you may never have suspected.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The more concessions you make today, the more likely others will be to demand more of you tomorrow and in the days to come. Stand your ground.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- The work you do today is sure to attract the attention of those whose intentions are very different from yours. Is there any way to collaborate?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- A slow start needn't result in a shorter roster of accomplishments today; once you get going, you can pick up the pace and get a lot done.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You may make the same mistake today that you made yesterday simply because you thought today would be different. There's time to adjust.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You may have trouble with unplanned interactions today simply because you are so focused on those that are expected. Make room for others!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your behavior may take others very much by surprise today, but resist the temptation to explain. Let your actions speak for you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Something that has been a mystery to you for quite some time may suddenly be crystal clear today. Are you looking at things differently?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may be considering a new way of doing something, but those who know you best are likely to warn you against changing anything today.
