Born today, you value your independence over all else. Whenever you feel it is being threatened in any way, you are quick to fight back -- and woe to anyone who stands in your way then! You are a highly emotional individual, sometimes too emotional for your own good, but you know this about yourself, and you don't pretend to be something that you're not. Self-knowledge is one of your greatest strengths, and you move through life with the confidence of one who knows what he or she can do, what he or she can't, and how to tell the difference. You are always willing and able to accept responsibility when it falls to you.
You have high standards and ideals, but you are not above cheating a bit if it serves your ends in the short term. Over the long haul, however, you insist on being true to yourself and your beliefs, and you insist that others respect them as well -- even when they do not, or cannot, live up to them.
Also born on this date are: Della Reese, singer; Nancy Reagan, U.S. first lady; Janet Leigh, actress; Sylvester Stallone, actor and writer; Dalai Lama, spiritual leader of Tibet; George W. Bush, U.S. president; John Paul Jones, U.S. naval hero.

SUNDAY, JULY 7
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It may surface that you have broken the rules recently, but what happens as a result is anyone's guess. You may get lucky.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may have to work harder than others today to reap comparable results. You'll be able to learn how to be more efficient very soon.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You don't want to attract the wrong kind of attention today, so you had better restrict yourself to activities that are aboveboard.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You're almost sure to learn from your mistakes more quickly than from your successes, and there may be an equal number of both.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may find yourself thinking of all the things you didn't do when given the chance, but that gets you nowhere. Focus on what you must do today!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You're likely to get the support of a majority of those with a serious interest in what's going on today, but is that a good thing?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be the one person that another person in charge can come to in a time of trouble -- and you can expect that time to come very soon.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You're coming through a personal trial with flying colors, but you still have a few difficult tasks to accomplish before success is yours.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- The hints that are flying about you give you the impression that you should know more about what's going on than you actually do.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You may enjoy one more opportunity to do something that you had assumed you would never be able to do again -- so don't miss out!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- You are tempted to reach out to someone who means more to you now than in the recent past, but you don't want the gesture to be misinterpreted.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You may feel as though you've had enough of the real world, but what, truly, are your alternatives? Stick to what you know.
