Born today, you live your life as if there were no promise of tomorrow. Indeed, for you, this is such a basic tenet that everything you do is motivated by a very real desire to fill each moment with as much pure living as you can. Certainly you understand that it is virtually impossible to fire on all cylinders hour after hour, day after day, without burning yourself out, so you will surely do all you can to provide yourself with the rest and relaxation necessary to both physical and mental health. But in the main, you will pursue what you desire with a single-minded intent that is remarkable to behold.
You are not always as serious as some might think. Indeed, you are often able to laugh louder -- and longer -- than those around you. You are able to find humor and light in almost any situation, even those that might dampen the spirits of others. Your positive spirit is your most dominant trait.
Also born on this date are: Alison Krauss, country singer; Bert Convy, actor; Haile Selassie, Ethiopian leader; Woody Harrelson, actor; Marlon Wayans, actor and comedian.
To see what is in store for you tomorrow, find your birthday and read the corresponding paragraph. Let your birthday star be your daily guide.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 24
ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Your ducks are in a row, as they say, and today you can really get things moving -- but do you really know where you're going to end up?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- You and a friend will want to perform a thorough debriefing after events that are not really a part of the plan.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You can improve the way you do things without taking on any more responsibility. You're multitasking enough for several people!
CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You can expect the technical assistance you have requested to give you more than you had bargained for -- and to pay off in a surprising way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You may receive assistance from someone who isn't used to offering it, but in your case he or she is willing to make an exception.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You can appreciate what another tells you even though you may not understand it completely. You'll be up to speed very soon.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) -- You may be eager for something of a getaway at this time, but you may be prevented -- for now -- by a family responsibility.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) -- If at first you can't do what you want because it doesn't suit someone else, try again after thoroughly explaining your motives.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) -- Financial matters may be more complex than expected. Focus on indicators that you can readily understand -- and trust an expert.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your emotions may be quite near the surface all day long. Indeed, you may be vacillating between two extremes at this time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) -- Physical difficulties can be overcome, but you're going to have to make a certain sacrifice in the process. It's worth it!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) -- You've been listening to someone else's predictions long enough, and today you'll want to go about your business regardless.
