Born today, you were born with a sense of duty and destiny, and though you may not always know specifically what you are meant to do, you will certainly do what you do as if you had no choice. So deep is your commitment to certain things that others may actually misinterpret your words and behavior and characterize you as something you are not -- but you will learn to use this odd phenomenon very much to your advantage.
You are fiercely ambitious, and when young, you may be frustrated by the seemingly slow pace of your development. What you may not know then but know much later is that not all that is beneficial will happen quickly.
Also born on this date are: Sir Alfred Hitchcock, filmmaker; Annie Oakley, Wild West entertainer; Bert Lahr, actor; Danny Bonaduce, actor; Dan Fogelberg, singer; George Shearing, pianist.

SUNDAY, AUGUST 14
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You may have to assign yourself a good deal of work today in order to address all the issues needing solutions. You must take the lead.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You'll have the chance to work and play very hard today. It's important that you complete key tasks before moving on to those that remain.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may not be able to divide your day into sections as you had hoped. A random influence yields random results. Be ready.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your competitive nature is likely to rise to the surface today. If there's ever a good time for you to relive a past success, this is it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll have reason today to be a little more conscientious than usual. There's a storm brewing, but your good behavior can lessen its impact.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You mustn't be so immersed in your own affairs today that you are unaware of a call for help that comes your way. You must be available.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You have a variety of options available to you today, but the one that stands out is likely to demand the most of you. Are you truly ready?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You usually have a knack for balancing thought and action, but today you may have reason to jump into the fray without much preparation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Your own enrichment may have to take a back seat to someone else's immediate needs -- but you'll find that this situation promotes learning.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You'll want to get an early start today, if possible, in order to make room later in the day for things that arise without any warning.
