Born today, you are a rather fiery individual. You wear your passions on your sleeve and let your feelings show at all hours of the day and night, regardless of the situation, the company or any impropriety involved in letting it all hang out. You are predictable only in one thing: your unpredictability. You will like this or that -- and then dislike it; you will support this cause or that -- then turn your back on it; you will work tirelessly to achieve a certain goal -- then forsake it altogether. You follow your passions, and you can seem quite changeable as a result. On the other hand, you are never to be dissuaded or shaken from your most basic beliefs, and this can be a source of tremendous inner strength.
You are both serious-minded and remarkably funny, and the paradox can be explained simply by the fact that, contrary to what so many think, the one does not preclude the other -- as you well know! Indeed, it is perhaps because you take things so seriously that you are able to laugh at them so heartily as well.
Also born on this date are: Benedict Cumberbatch, actor; Vikki Carr, singer; Anthony Edwards, actor; Ilie Nastase, tennis player; George McGovern, politician; Edgar Degas, artist.

SATURDAY, JULY 20
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- It's a good day to try a new exercise regimen -- or, if not that, at least a new way of satisfying a certain need you simply cannot avoid.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You may not be able to beat another at his own game, but you can have the last laugh very soon if you remain true to your own ideals.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You may be receiving mixed messages; take care that nothing you do is the result of information that could possibly be erroneous!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You have what it takes to lead others from a place of danger to a place of safety. Later, you'll want to explain just how you'll do it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may have to reverse your own opinion as a result of circumstances you did not foresee. This is not a weakness, but a strength.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You ignore your basic impulses at your peril. Nothing that comes naturally at this time can be as bad for you as some others think.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You can't have things both ways; very soon you'll have to make a decision regarding what you will and will not do.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- You can find out what you need to know today if you are willing to bend, or even break, a few rules. Is it really worth it?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- There's no place for sarcasm or nasty talk today. Remain calm, clear, honest and open to the ideas that others have to offer.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You're going to have to act fast today in order to head someone off at the pass. What you do will be long remembered, at least by some.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- A slow and contemplative approach may not give you the advantage over the competition that you seek at this time.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- Not everything will be revealed to you today, but you'll get just enough information to be able to make a key decision.
