Born today, you are the portrait of self-confidence, and you carry yourself with dignity even when things are falling apart around you. Indeed, it is perhaps when things are at their worst that you are at your best, able to rise above the fray and remain true to yourself and your principles. This is not to suggest, of course, that you always make the right decisions or always do the things that are best for you; on the contrary, you may actually make more mistakes than the average mortal! But you never let those mistakes -- or the hardships that they bring upon you -- get you down; you are confident that you will enjoy better times very soon. In fact, you firmly believe that what you most want is just around the next corner.
You have a great deal of natural magnetism, and you are likely to attract a great many people into your orbit. You must take care, however, that you do not let yourself be taken advantage of by those who would use you for their own ends. Stay away from those who would take, take, take without giving something back!
Also born on this date are: Lindsay Lohan, actress; Polly Holliday, actress; Jerry Hall, model; Imelda Marcos, Philippine leader; Richard Petty, auto racer; Thurgood Marshall, Supreme Court justice; Hermann Hesse, author and poet.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 3
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You've been at cross-purposes with an old ally, and today is the day for you to sort out the situation once and for all.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You've been anticipating a happy ending, but nothing today is likely to be concluded in the way that you expect. Some things may be better!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You're trying too hard to make things difficult for yourself, whether you know it or not. Lighten up and do yourself a favor instead.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- A one-way situation suddenly opens up and offers you more options than expected. You and a friend communicate in a new way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You'll receive news from someone who seems to know better than you what really matters to you at this time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A smile does much more for you today than a frown. You may not know where the road is leading, but the view certainly pleases you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- The time has come for you to foot the bill for something you should have paid for quite some time ago. It's a good day to mend your ways.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You'll understand just what is at stake today, but you may feel restricted by rules that don't seem to suit the times. Change them!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- You'll be feeling better than expected today, especially given the complicated circumstances that you are currently facing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may not know what to think when an old friend comes to you with a very surprising request. The best thing to do is play along.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Travel plans may have to change as a result of a sudden development on the home front. This requires a postponement, not a cancellation.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- It's time to settle -- for good -- the bad blood between you and an old friend who is still, for good reason, one of the best friends you have.
