BIRTHDAY GUY: Actor Michael Urie was born in Dallas on this day in 1980. This birthday guy is known for his portrayal of Marc St. James both on "Ugly Betty" and "Mode After Hours." He's provided his voice talents to the animated film "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" and appeared in the film "WTC View." Urie has appeared on stage in a 2009 production of "The Temperamentals."

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Try to be accurate rather than vague. You won't want to waste time spinning your wheels. There may be enormous pressure on you to perform at your best, so schedule plenty of breaks and get lots of rest.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You won't find a recipe for living that suits all cases. You could be so anxious to fit in with the crowd that you might bend your own rules. This is not the time to pretend to be something you aren't.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A casual conversation could be misconstrued. It isn't possible to present a convincing argument under these celestial conditions, so don't try to defend your position. Make no large investments.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Separate the facts from the fancies. Under these stars, you could easily be provoked or act out of misplaced ardor. You possess plenty of energy, but need to be sure that you apply it in constructive ways.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Peace and contentment come not so much from getting what you want, as from having few wants to satisfy. Although someone may dangle an attractive proposition, resist the temptation to participate.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): High hopes are just pies in the sky. Not everything is what it seems. You may rely too much on the hype and not pay enough attention to the facts. Do not enter into agreements or make promises.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): When you rush in and jump to conclusions, it is easy to lose sight of the path and get lost. Misunderstandings with others are possible, so remember to walk carefully around a minefield of touchy subjects.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Resist the urge to react when it seems that people do their best to push your buttons. It may pay off in the end to remain loving and kind -- even in the face of opposition to your plans and ideas.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You can't see see eye to eye with people when you look down on them. Avoid making important financial decisions or signing contracts that are based on spur-of-the-moment desires and wishes.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you feel torn two ways, it is best to stick to the middle. You might be challenged to defend yourself even when it isn't in your best interest to do so. Steer clear of confrontations and arguments.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You follow your own life-plan, which cannot be superseded by any other. A desire to appear to be just one of the guys or gals might tempt you to voice opinions that are alien to your nature.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You can get by on your good looks as long as you keep quiet. It is possible that communications will experience mix-ups. You might also find that money has a tendency to slip through your fingers.

IF AUGUST 8 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Tame a tendency to be overly eager and competitive by participating in physical activities or sports. Group activities can provide an avenue of contacts that lead to bigger and better career, job or financial success this year. By fall, you will be in better physical shape and your mental attitudes will improve as well. In December, don't let your gullible nature or wishful thinking get the best of you. A new idea or person could be less than advertised. Plan ahead and choose to make key changes or important financial commitments in February or March.
